300 Posts and Counting

Wow! Is it really the 300th post on Bombay Foodie. Already!

As is traditional on every 100 post interval, I present a new wishlist. First a report card : 31 things to do on my previous wishlist; 9 done. Which means that 22 make an appearance again and this one's got 9 brand new things to bring the total back to 31. So here goes, and I promise I will aim for a higher score next time round:

1. Eat at Alinea.

2. Delve into the alchemy of food. Create something, anything that qualifies as molecular gastronomy.

3. Make fresh pasta.

4. Taste blood oranges.

5. Cook with rhubarb.

6. Make mango pickle like mom.

7. Eat a Meyer lemon.

8. Make S'Mores.

9. Buy blue cornmeal.

10. Try Ethiopian cuisine.

11. Taste Gucchhi (morels).

12. Cook with Rice Paper.

13. Make Vienese Fingers.

14. Make souffle.

15. Taste Absinthe.

16. Make Blinis.

17. Make dolmas.

18. Taste fried halloumi.

19. Make a flambe dish.

20. Make fondue (cheese or chocolate?).

21. Taste fiddleheads.

22. Make khandvi.

23. Make madeleines.

24. Learn to temper chocolate.

25. Make caramel candies.

26. Make puff pastry cream rolls.

27. Perfect cinnamon buns.

28. Make crisp almond cookie I ate at global fusion.

29. Bake a Japanese light cheesecake.

30. Make a double crust pie and a lattice pie.

31. Make Irish cream lookalike at home.

Tales of A Female Nomad

This month, our book club goes on a nomadic tour. We traveled with Rita Golden Gelman, a writer who sold everything she owned after the shock of a divorce and became a nomad. Not a tourist, because Rita stays away from everything that a tourist does and instead, tries to live the lives of people she visits.

From Mexico to Israel to Galapago Islands, Rita goes the way least traveled, always preferring to stay as a boarder with natives. And sometimes, going to places not even locals will go, places so secluded yet beautiful that Rita's description takes your breath away, urges you to become a nomad yourself.

Yet even nomads sometimes find their roots. Rita found hers in Bali where she spent eight years. Starting as a boarder with a prince, she eventually became a part of the family. I instantly knew I wanted to cook something Indonesian. I picked Nasi Goreng, the Indonesian fried rice.



There are as many recipes for Nasi Goreng as there are cooks. Some use tomatoes, others tamarind.…

The Bread Whisperer

What do an electrical engineer, a monk and an IT trainer have in common? These are all the things Abhilash was before he turned his attention to bread baking. Not the one to pick an easy path, Abhilash started with the most temperamental of breads - the sourdough - as his baking adventure. At first, he was baking these loaves for himself. Accolades from friends and family quickly followed and much to the delight of this writer, he turned his passion into a full time career six months back.

For the uninitiated, a sourdough bread is made by fermenting the dough with naturally occurring yeast, making it harder to perfect than the bread made with commercial yeast. The bread's signature tang and the open crumb, with lots of holes, is only made better with a high hydration dough that is super tricky to master. While extremely popular around the world, good sourdough is an elusive commodity in Mumbai and there are only a handful of bakers I would trust when I am looking for bread.

Healthy Spinach Rice for Microwave Potluck Party

Is it really two years that Srivalli has been running her innovative microwave cooking event. She's prompted me to try my microwave for more than just heating several times. Just like last year, Srivalli celebrates the event anniversary with a potluck party. I took a dessert to the party last time around, but this time I was rooting for something healthier. I turned to last year's roundup, and there was this spinach rice. Valli, hope you don't mind getting the same dish on the menu again.

To make spinach rice, wash and soak 1/2 cup rice. In a microwave safe dish, heat a tsp of ghee for 30 seconds. Add 5-6 peppercorns and heat for another 10 seconds. Now add a small onion, chopped finely and microwave for another 30 seconds. Add a cup of finely chopped spinach, 1/2 a tsp of garam masala and another 1/2 tsp of salt. Mix and cook for 2-3 minutes until the spinach wilts. Add rice to the bowl, and a cup of water then pop it back in the microwave for 5 minutes. Bring it out and…
