Cooking Methods / Re: what i learned from my cooking lesson

just a note here from a cooking nerd: cassia is what most people think of as "cinnamon". True cinnamon is not found in nice little cheap containers of ground spices in your local grocery store.

Tej patta is the leaf of the cassia plant. It's called "bay leaf" but it's a completely different plant - European bay leaf is a laurel leaf, and has only 1 large vein running down the middle. Tej, cinnamon cassia leaf, Asian bay leaf, or sweet leaf has 3 veins on the underside.

Phil, "re-compiling the kernel" is a tired piece of anti-Linux fearmongering from Microsoft. For most people "re-compiling the kernel" comes down to clicking "install upgrades" and typing in their admin password. Most of the time nowadays I don't even have to reboot unless it's a substantial upgrade.

there *are* keto breads out there, they just tend to be expensive.

But if you're seriously jonesing for a naan, sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and pay the $$$.

I made the switch to Linux permanently about a decade ago. There is only 1 Windows program I don't have a replacement for, so I run a WinXP install under virtualisation so I can run that one game. As it doesn't need network access I run WXP without any connectivity.

Everything else is either an equivalent (LibreOffice is under aggressive active development and becomes a little more accomplished each iteration) or is run as an online/cloud version, or I just use something else (GIMP instead of Photoshop).

I wouldn't switch back to Windows, and Apple can go pound sand  :P

Phil, I'd spray edible leaves with soapy water. Soap always kills bugs, but there is no residual action so you'd need to keep spraying until the bugs are gone.

Natural bug predators like ladybugs or dragon flies would also help.

Welcome, DJ, and greetings from Alabama!

I usedtacould do that, but not any more, y'all  ;D

howdy Robbo! Scot in Alabama here. I have posted a recipe for a Goan style pork vindaloo, which is utterly delicious. It's not nearly as spicy as a BIR vindaloo, but you can always just dump a load more Indian chili powder into it :)

The curry, dhal and paratha will be done live, the bhajis warmed up. Thats why im erring away from rice as its too much of a faf i think



If you have access to one of those commercial soup warmer tureen things, I would say go for it with the rice. If not, you are probably right to shy away from it.

Edwin, what's the time lapse between decanting the curry and it being served, if you know?
