    And if you leave the seeds in the chili, you‘ll probably get a hot chili sauce

    Hard to get even distribution of seeds in sauce. And trust me, you don't want the spoonful with ten in

    Related story that should probably be posted elsewhere but ...
    On my first night of a 9 month stay in France, the father of the family handed me a green chili as 'aperitif' - the family were nibbling olives.
    I took it, ate it, faked enjoyment and asked if they had any red ones before surreptitiously raiding the fridge for a yoghurt. Sang-froid
    Had spent the previous 3 months sharing a kitchen with an Indian couple.

    And yes, playing such a trick on a young girl far from home was a sign of worse to come. Not all petites anglaises deserve that reputation.

    Huh, that was not nice
    Good for you that you already had your indian training . 30 years ago, I lived with an Indian family in England for a month. They always wanted to give me microwave pizza for fear, I wouldn’t/couldn’t eat their original food (I later learned they had a couple of Italian girls before me, who ate microwave pizza for a whole month exclusively ... what a waste). I ate everything they cooked and while a felt like a fire spitting Dragon sometimes, I learned met lots of delicious and formerly unknown food

    Am now craving pakoras, samosas, bhajis, daal, saag aloo, brinjal pickle.........
    Once burnt out the motor of a coffee grinder trying to make my own chick-pea flour as couldn't find it here. Also made kulfi from scratch, (8h in 45° heat). Will dig out some recipes next week.
    My Indian game friends all seem astonished how much of their cuisine we know. Will make sure they're sitting down before introducing a German afficionado

    Lol ...

    My Indian family was eating with djapatis instead of cutlery and I was - predictably - making a mess of it. The 7 year old daughter: „How old are you?“ I said: „19“. She: „And why can’t you eat properly?“

    Now that is spicy cheese dip! What a nice twist on the Velveeta Rotel dip.

    Hmmm...will ponder on that. Whether or not that chocolate will even reach the recipe...

    My favorite dish with pasta. I learned it from a neighbour next to real estate in Sanremo, Italy. Perfect and easy dish for lunch with family or friends in my opinion.
    Meatballs are the one thing I have never made and they sound delicious! I always have cooked my meat into a crumble, so this will be a new venture into the art of cooking meat(s) for me.
