    • Kolkata Street Food
      By myfancypantry · Posted
      wow!  Now I wish I was back in Kolkata.... When I was there last (not sure if I've posted here since), a sweetmaker in Serempore took me under his wing and taught me most of the traditional sweets. It was quite the experience!
    • Reheating Biryani: Question
      By myfancypantry · Posted
      Hello Everyone!  I've been missing in action for quite sometime!  The past year has been really busy for me---and I haven't had a chance to even keep up with my blog.  I have been cooking though--just not much free time to post anything that I can't do with my smartphone.  The reason?  Piyush and I had a baby!  Arjun arrived January 24--on Saraswati Puja!  We had been at the puja all day, enjoyed the yummy Bengali foods, took a nice nap...then he decided it was time! Anyway, on Saturday (tomorrow) we are holding his Mukhe Bhaat (Annaprashan) and I have been busy cooking!  We're planning 40-50 guests, so it's a real undertaking!  I have made a little bit of everything as my family will attend too...and unfortunately they just aren't lovers of spice--but will usually give most things a try (we are also ordering pizza).   The Indian Menu: Chicken Awadhi Biryani Raita (cucumber, mint and onion) Tomato, Onion, Cucumber Salad Chole Bengali Aloo Subji Chicken 65 Tomato Chutney Payesh (Bengali style kheer) Gulab Jamun Saffron and Rose Sondesh Because it's so much cooking, I am making the biryani today.  I'm storing it in a big roaster pan which can either go in the oven or can but put on an electric heater (it's a big electric roaster used for cooking the Thanksgiving Turkey).    My question is: How do I reheat the biryani tomorrow without it drying out?  The roaster lid has two small holes for steam to escape.  Should I keep those covered during reheating?  Has anyone cooked for a crowd before and has advice to share? I would be most appreciative!  
    • How to make a delicious Lentil Soup
      By vandy · Posted
      Lately the wife has been adding Lentils when she makes home made vegetable soup, Love it and makes a change to adding barley. She does not make it spicy though, I just add a spoonful of pickle to my bowl of soup to liven it up.
    • How is Indian food changing in India?
      By johnnn10 · Posted
      t I truly understand. However, "sociology of community changing in hurry" I find a little disturbing. In India, people looks to be loosing culture, local language and specially music in hurry. And apart from food, even more so when it comes to local architecture. I mean what's with very uninspiring concrete jungle appearing in all smaller cities and towns?  ------------------------------ { Indian yoga}
