Hyderabadi Tamatar ka Kut, Tomato Curry :
A rainy season favourite, you can call this one a South Asian version of tomato soup .

This steaming, spicy, tangy curry is the simplest thing to make with only tomatoes and a few spices as stars of the show.

Serve with paratha, naan or rice, this curry is an epitome of comfort !

Don't like/want eggs? Serve with toasted paneer cheese pieces or as is .

+caitlin yen ,other than wheat there are so many different flours used, like gram, sorghum, millet, even a mixture of rice and lentils. And there are a variety of methods involved; leavened, unleavened, with batter and with dough, steamed, baked in the oven or cooked over skillet. The more I read about them, the more fascinated I get with the flat breads in the region 😊

Goan Seafood Curry :
This quick n easy curry has layers of flavour; its tangy and spicy with a hint of sweetness from coconut milk.

The fresh flavours in the curry adapt beautifully to almost all seafood, not just fish – prawns, mussels, or squid taste equally great in this curry .
Who says you can't eat royally on a weeknight? This curry is pure indulgence!

Thank you, +ASIF HABIB​ 😊 This one is such indulgence and unbelievably easy to cook too 😊
I ate it some two years back at Andaz, near Lahore fort. They had a visiting chef from India for a month I think. That's where I ate
Idlis for the first time too and some other exotic stuff.
But do try making it at home, you will love it 😊

Things are never dull around +Larry Fournillier​ ! Do take 5 minutes to watch this short video to know what exciting new cultural and culinary adventures he is planning for all of us... coming very soon!
I'm honoured and delighted to be a small part of this fun project.
Things Are Happening... On the 10th Parallel North

A brief announcement of an exciting project on which I've embarked upon and will be launching soon. It involves three things that I'm passionate about food, people, and culture.

I will be taking an interesting perspective on how two ethnic groups changed the cuisine and culture of two countries which share the same climate, fruits, and vegetable but are over 10,000 miles apart.

Please follow my Collection 10th Parallel North ( so you can stay up to date with all of the exciting developments!

Murgh Saagwala, Chicken with Greens Curry :
Pairing the greens with chicken seems like a natural choice for Autumn/winter comfort food . The chicken in this recipe is just there for background flavour - not to steal the show. The stars of the recipe are green leafy vegetables .

It's incredibly satisfying to tuck into a bowl of this mildly spiced, creamy curry, packed full of the nutrients from assorted greens .

Simplicity is the key to this dish . It can be made ahead and pairs nicely with steamed rice or flatbreads.

I love the combination of red and black eyed beans. And when submerged in spicy curry base, everything is just right :-) Thank you for sharing.
