Food Safari 2 – another video

27 March 2011
By

Here’s another video on Sri Lankan cooking which starts out with string hoppers. Charmaine Solomon, the woman in the first half of the video uses a wildly different amount of ingredients in her curries than I’ve seen in other Sri Lankan curries. Again, it comes down to variations in ethnicity and region, I believe,...

Spicy Mustard Chicken Curry

A month and a half back, Fahim and I were returning home when we saw this truck. ... Cuz I really don't think we're in an alternate universe right now, you know? As it turns out, we got our answer when the car we were in passed the truck.

Mmm… Curried Chicken Sandwich… Mmm…

I made another batch of Kaiser Soze Rolls, this time with the no-honey substitutions, and it turned out beautifully! Lunchtime came around, so I made myself a sandwich. Kaiser Soze Rolls with shredded curried chicken; bell peppers, cucumber, and onion; and of course homemade mayonnaise. Yum! Tags: lunch, bread, rolls, kaiser rolls, mayonnaise

Kaiser Soze Rolls

I think “life is an experiment” is a phrase I take way too seriously. 😀 I needed a recipe for buns – I’d been craving a Subway meatball sub, and since the nearest Subway is in India, I figured the only way I was going to get a meatball sub would be to make...

Lunch on Eid ul-Fitr

We opted to get outside food this Eid. It’s so much less work and so much less tiring. Unfortunately, it’s not quite as good as homemade. We ordered the mutton biryani package from Miami Catering. The mutton biryani came with six hard-boiled eggs and 1 kg mutton (minimum! they say). It also came with...

Breakfast on Eid ul-Fitr

Eid ul-Fitr is the day marking the end of Ramadan for Muslims. Eid is one of the most important days for Muslims, similar to Christmas for Christians. Breakfast isn’t eaten until the men return from the mosque for festival prayers at around 8:30 am. Today was a fairly typical breakfast for Eid ul-Fitr or...

Mama Farook’s Sri Lankan Chilli Potatoes

Mama Farook’s Sri Lankan Chilli Potatoes

Because it’s Ramadan, and it’s difficult for Fahim to eat a full meal when breakfast has to be done by 4:30am, enough to carry him through the next 14 hours until he can eat again, he gets to make requests. At the beginning of Ramadan, Fahim had asked for his mother’s chilli potatoes. While...

Tandoori Paste

23 January 2009
By

My version of tandoori paste is inspired by the tandoori paste recipe on this page, but of course, modified for my use. I omitted the cloves (cloves and I do not get along, after all ;)) and food colourings (I really don’t get the point of adding miscellaneous chemicals just for a colour effect)...

About LMAshton

Howdy and welcome to my site! I'm Laurie and I'll be your, er, hostess today. :)

I'm a Canadian expat currently living in Singapore. I'm married to a Sri Lankan and lived in Sri Lanka for nearly a decade. We also lived in New Zealand for half a year.

I cook Sri Lankan curries, sambols, and mallungs. I bake bread using wild yeast (sourdough that isn't sour). I bake on the stove. I experiment with Indian / Malaysian / Indonesian / Thai / whatever cuisines interest me. And I experiment wildly.

Life is an adventure. Join me! :)
