Yesterday my third grader came back from school asking:
"Mom, do you have whipping cream and a glass jar?"
I had them, so she told me to get it ready for her. She came after washing her hands and said "Mom, we made butter in the science class today, and we ate it with crackers. I want to make it again. So you can learn it from me".
She poured in the whipping cream in the glass jar and I helped her to close the lid tight. She started shaking the jar.
After two minutes, "Mom, my hands are hurting. At school, we were taking turns and shaking the jar. Would you like taking turns?".
Okay! We both took turns and shook it and shook it. The whipping cream solidified a lot, and after about 5 minutes it turned to butter!! We ate it with crackers. I wish I had a picture to share.
We learned to make butter!
Lately I have been learning a lot too, from all your blogs. I got lazy with the camera and pictures(winter laziness?), so I am forced to share my feedback without pictures. :(
- Shaheen's MadakkiPathiri. These are delicious, but you need to give oil bath twice to these beauties. Once when you roll them and again when you fry them.
- Annita's Fish Pickle, I made only a small batch of these with a little adjustment in the spices. It's all finished within a few days. I have to make it again.
- Inji's Green Peas Gravy(The link to this recipe is unavailable at this moment. I will add it here as and when it becomes available.)
- Meena's Hummus. So delicious in sandwiches and as a dip too.
- Manisha's Roasted Garlic. I used it in sandwiches, and to flavor my homemade white pasta sauce.
- Shaheen's Chemmeen Ada. I have also tried fish ada using the same procedure. I feel like to delete my old meen pathiri post now. I realize how funny looking that pathiri was!! Thank you shaheen, I have finally learned how to make thinner pathiris. :) Do you make Meat ada too? How do you make the meat stuffing?
- Shammi's Caramel Custard: Yay! I have a picture for this!
I used my usual ratio of 3 eggs to one cup of milk. Also I didn't put the weight on the pressure cooker while steaming it. I totally altered Shammi's instructions. But the whole idea of cooking it in the pressure cooker was from her blog. So I thought I would post it here rather than making it a separate post. I steamed it in the prssure cooker for 8-10 minutes without the whistle.
- And I just made Saffron's Rava Laddoos! Her new sweet posts have made me grow an extra sweet tooth and I had to make it!
Thank you all for sharing all these wonderful recipes. Looking forward to cooking more from the blogs in the coming days.
