Just taking a quick break from cooking. :)

For the first time in simply ages, I made pizza tonight. It came out really well, so I'm posting the recipe and a pic.

I've just grated eight large potatoes. Now my arm is shaking from exhaustion.

I love latkes. *nods* With applesauce.

That is all.

The dunderhead next door has to wait until precisely the minute I start recording the podcast before he decides Sunday evening is the time to start mowing the lawn *checks nervously for spy equipment installed*.

So we went shopping on Friday. We found two Indian grocery stores and felt like in seventh heaven. The cupboards are now stocked with chappati flour, gram flour, various spices I didn't find at World Market, soapnut powder, pappadums, the freezer contains paneer cheese, and we're all happy. Then we found an Indian restaurant. All in all, a very successful day, and last night, I indulged in some cooking.

Saag Paneer

Fry a finely chopped onion until it starts to brown,
Add finely chopped ginger, garlic, chilli, tomato to taste
Add a little bit of water (unless you use tinned tomatoes, then no water is needed)
Add spinach to taste
Add spices to taste: salt, chilli powder, cumin, turmeric, black mustard seeds
Cook over medium heat for approx. 5 minutes
Add paneer cheese cubes, cook for another 5 minutes
Serve over rice with fresh cilantro and juice of a lime.

Paneer cheese can also be found in Mexican shops, it's called Queso Blanco. It does not melt.
