August Round-Up – Part 3 Various

SEPTEMBER TEASER: English muffins and hamburger buns

Some more goodies I made near the end of the month.

I tried a new matar paneer recipe and made 12 oz of fresh paneer to use in it. There was a lot of tomato gravy at the end, much more so than in the previous version I made. I added a bit of whipping cream to the sauce to sweeten it.

Indian Meal – purchased roti, chicken tikka, yogurt, basmati rice and matar paneer. All served with some refreshing lemonade. I made some pretty tasty Indian rice pudding with the leftover basmati rice (the next day, Sept 1, but I’m including it in this post).

Indian Rice Pudding (Rice Kheer) – serves 2-3

1 cup cooked basmati rice
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup whipping cream
3 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup raisins
a pinch cardamom powder

In a saucepan combine the above and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, stirring gently, until the pudding has thickened as much as desired, about 20 minutes

Take the saucepan off the heat and let sit for at least 10 minutes during which time it will thicken a bit more.

Refrigerate and serve cold or room temperature.

Ham … boiled and prepped for the freezer. I hope to do something creative with the pork skin eventually.

Peanut Brittle

Espresso Panna Cotta with Peanut Brittle garnish – not very prettty (the vanilla bean settled to the bottom) but it was easy to make … and tasty

You can always eat it directly out of the ramekin, of course.

  1. These recipes look so delicious. I adore home made paneer and the tomato sauce is a perfect accompaniment for the rich little cubes. The brittle looks fantastic beside the soft, smooth, jiggly Panna Cotta.
