What did I cook last week? I can barely remember. Last week was a crazed blur and this week is going to be even crazier. I had to upload my last few photos to remember. Here we see my papadums--not from scratch, but I did fry them myself and they puffed up into these fun treats. Great with papaya chutney.
But the culinary highlight of the week (so far as I remember) was eggplant with cardamom in tomato sauce. I have decided that eggplant and cardamom make a great combination. I cracked about 20 cardamom pods and some coriander seeds into a pan of hot oil, smoked the seeds a while, then added one large, peeled, chopped eggplant and a little can of tomato paste (and salt to taste). When it was nearly done I also added some lemon juice. Surprisingly good, though not particularly photogenic.
