The Culinary (Mis)Adventures of the Not-So-Adventurous

I love cooking. Not regular everyday cooking that's more like a chore. I love cooking when it's a real fancy affair on weekends and on special occasions. I love going shopping for grocery, and I enjoy filling the shopping cart with oodles of edible delicacies that I can work on for the next couple of hours just to come up with something completely different than what I had planned to make. Nonetheless, I love my little culinary experiments and here are some I tossed up in the last couple of weeks:

Shrimp Tempura with Mango Salsa (the Tempura was made by Hubby:D)


Spicy Beef Curry (Thai style)      
Purple Cabbage Stir Fry with Baby Corns and Mushrooms

Sticky Vermicelli Barfi
Sfouf ( A middle-eastern dessert made with semolina and flour)

Hi Anonymous! Anything bothering you about the beef curry? :S
Hey Viya, here's the recipe for mango salsa I used here:

Make a chutney/paste with a bunch of coriander leaves, 2-3 green chillis (according to your taste), a sprinkle of salt and a little bit of sugar. Mix this well with 2 chopped ripe mangoes. Squeeze some lime juice and mix it again. If you like rock salt, you can put in a pinch of that too. Mango salsa's done in no time!
