The snow is falling but I have a little taste of sunshine in a jar, my homemade lemon pickle. It is SO easy to make.  Just lemons and salt (with a secret method you'll find on page 55 of M and M). It's great with my ultimate comfort food, subzi parauntha, a delectable vegetable-filled flat-bread.

Love, Rani

Roasted Okra, Peppers and Tomatoes with Mushrooms (Pindi/Koomban)

Posted by Veronica Sidhu on Sunday, January 16, 2011, In : Recipes 
Is it because the holidays are over and the doldrums have set in that I have the urge to develop more recipes for you ?  I love summer for the roasted veggies on the grill. But why not use the oven to roast them in winter? So I roasted a mixture of veggies that I've stewed before during other winter months.  The roasting not only deepened the flavors, but kept the okra from becoming (there is no nice way to say this) slimy. You may use hot or mild peppers, seeding them is optional. Great with...
