Indian cooking is known for its aromatic herbs and spices. If you go to any Indian kitchen, you’ll find a box of spices used for everyday cooking. Generally made of steel, this box contains small containers of like turmeric, red chilli, Mustard seeds, cumin and coriander powder and garam masala! And then there are whole variety of dried spices which give the Indian dishes their unique flavour. Some of them remind me of my grandmother who had her own blend of garam masala. How many of these have you used?
Making Thai curry paste is so much easier than it looks, it’s just taking the ingredients, roasting some of them and then just grinding in Pestle and mortar. Or a processor works too! It’s so full of freshness and flavour, and takes you to tropical paradise with just one bite!
Soothing lavender tea is a really pretty drink and has a very calming flavour. This is coffee free drink, that can be enjoyed at any time, and lavender is even said to relieve sleeping disorders. The illustration features some beautiful, hand painted lavender sprigs.
