I love chain of events which ends up in things I didn’t intend on doing …
Now that I cook more Taiwanese, I was looking out for different types of noodles. Hence I cam across the rice noodles used for making pad Thai. That got me thinking about that I never attempted making it 🙂
Hence this recipe:
There are more than a few recipes that I loved eating in Taiwan …
I stumbled upon this one randomly. While traveling I like wandering off into streets without knowing where they lead to. In one such endeavor I passed by a small corner shop where they seemed to be making something interesting .. plus I was hungry.
That’s how I found the “Thick fish noodle soup” 🙂
So I tried making it in Munich ..
Last week I visited Taiwan for the first time. It was also the first time I was in a far east Asian country. I usually don’t plan much before i travel somewhere, so had no clue what kind of food to expect.
… and I was surprised! They have such an amazing variety of awesome food! 😀
I was literally eating something every hour 😛
So now that I am back .. I have decided to “try” recreating some of the things I liked over there. (At least before I start modifying them 😉 )
Beef noodle soup is one of the most popular dishes there .. so here goes:
The Italian series continues …
About the same time I came across the pasta made with red wine, I came across this .. Conchiglioni di Napoli. I have no clue how to make of this, though I have seen the smaller versions of this. But looked like something you can fill. Hence this recipe:
This time, when I visited Italy, I decided to load my backpack with as much fancy pasta I could while coming back. Also been sometime since I added any Italian on my blog.
One of these pastas is like a Tagliolini made with red wine. Hence it caught my eye 😉
There are many places that are uniquely identified by some of their signature dishes. I have the privilege of calling one of such places as my home.
One might find it hard to identify as being a “Mumbaikar” unless they haven’t had a “Vada pav”. So I decided to make the batata vada tonight 🙂
With a lot of cuisine, you may notice recipes that don’t really exist in the place they are supposed to be from. Example: In Germany, one of the most popular and common recipes in Indian restaurants is “Mango Chicken”. In Estonia, they serve “Honey Chicken”.
What I assumed to be a similar case, is “Chole Chicken”. But turns out it’s quite common in the northern part of India. It just happens that I never tried or came across it before 🙂
Hence this …
Recently I stumbled upon an album of some Punjabi food on Facebook. Needless to say I was missing home a lot while going through the album 😥
But I also got inspired to try something I didn’t cook before.
Hence this recipe:
Apart from being excited about finding a decent assortment of sea-food in Munich, in the recent year my neighborhood has introduced a lot of Japanese food to me. Prior to that Ramen and Sushi were the only real Japanese recipes that I had tried. Currently my favorite is the dumplings .. Gyoza 🙂
But anything that requires making wraps or bread out of flour is usually out of my cooking menu because it can be messy.
Hence experimenting with noodles. Fat wheat noodles, also called “Udon”
Like I mentioned, I will be adding more of sea-food recipes in the coming posts 🙂
Few years back, I experimented using aubergine with shrimps and that turned out fine. So now that I have my new found cache of sea-food, it’s back on the menu 😉
… with some modifications of course 🙂
