This goes to Black and White Wednesdays managed by Cinzia, created by Susan and hosted this week at Lemon n Ginger.
A belated post culled from several attempts to post for Cooking With Seeds-Cumin, August 2013 created by Priya, and hosted this month at TiffinCarrier Antic/que's! This was meant to be posted yesterday and I had hoped to cook a slew of dishes based around this favourite spice but one way or the other, the blog posts did not materialize! In between all the convuluted reasons, I mostly ended up making and tweaking a simple recipe, given here. The Jeera Aloo recipe was enjoyed mostly as a 'salad snack' for office, during the solitary summer days, sparing anyone the dreariness of the same dish!
I will be posting the round up during the first week of September. I may not be able to post the recipes of some of the dishes but let me share a few vignettes of my efforts:
|Jeera Rice/ Cumin Rice, Cumin spiced Paneer Butter Masala, Cumin spiced Cottage Cheese Cubes/ Jeera Paneer|
|Dahi Vada with a garnish of powdered Cumin, dry roasted Cumin, Paprika and fresh Coriander|
Jeera Aloo accompanied with fresh Poori's/ Puri's.

An unsurprising result during my baking spree... the last such episode was a year plus ago! The cake came out moist and flavourful though! The recipe, a keeper.

Birthday Cakes play their tricks
Orange Soaked Bundt Cake from Fine Cooking. As is inevitable, from my previous foray's, this cake decided to follow another path. It has been a long series of attempts to post. Work, camera off on a vacation, unsure about a friend's borrowed instrument all contributed, wily-nily, to a pause in blogging. Drafts adding up during this blink of a summer!

I am happy to announce that TiffinCarrier Antic/que's will be hosting this month's Cooking With Seeds event. It has been a year plus since TiffinCarrier Antic/que's hosted this event. Created by the very prolific and talented Priya, the ingredient for this month is Cuminum Cyminum - Cumin.
Cumin, for people from the subcontinent, is a 'warming' spice according to Ayurveda and an everyday staple in our spiceboxes. It easily navigates diverse recipes across the Indian subcontinent. Roasting, tempering, grinding and powdering the seed brings us flavours and memories reflecting, in many ways, our regional backgrounds. Of course, this spice is not confined to the subcontinent and has an equally diverse and delicious tradition in places like the Mediterrnean, the Americas, Middle East etc...
So, do blog your favourite recipes with the ingredient, Cumin. Here are the details for participating in this event:
- Post any recipe using Cumin between August 1st and August 31, 2013.
- Link your post to this announcement and to Priya's event announcement. This is mandatory.
- Use of the logo, above would be appreciated.
- Non-bloggers are welcome to participate. Please send the details to me along with a photograph not more than, 500 x 700 pixels
- Please send your recipe details to me, tiffincarrieranticques AT gmail DOTcom with the subject line CWS-August & following details:
- Your Name :
- Your Blog Name :
- The Recipe Name :
- The Recipe URL :
- A photograph of your recipe, 500 x 700 pixels in size.
I will post the round-up during the first week of September.

An Ode to Bacchus....
A visit back to the city, during late spring, beautiful weather and a glimpse into Roman Britan's decadance! A visit to a favourite musuem which had just opened its exhibits of the Mildenhall Treasure. As usual, one was left wanting for more, greedy for more time in the city...
