How was your week, readers? Mine was filled with lots of tea and pumpkin flavoured Indian snacks. I have been doing a little more experimenting with seasonal produce this week, and I think it might just be converting me from my stubborn anti-autumn ways. I felt a strong desire to go on a walk and collect leaves in a multitude of golden autumn hues…But most of them were kind of mushy, so alas. Oh well, it’s the thought that counts, right?
Anyway, I’m back with 5 recipes from other bloggers that have caught my eye this week as well as some lovey homeware finds on Etsy. Check it!
5 Blogger Recipes
- Chicken Laksa from A Fork and a Pencil – A warming chicken South East Asian noodle soup, cooked in coconut milk and flavoured with lime juice and fish sauce, yum.
- Beef Pasandey from The House of Spice – Thin slices of beef marinated overnight in yoghurt. The beef looks so tender in the pictures.
- Valval from Cook with Kushi – Hearty vegetables cooked in coconut milk and flavoured with spices but there is no garlic or onion used in the recipe.
- Cheesy Masala Scones from Kitchen Karma – I love fusion recipes and these scones would be great with a cup of tea.
- Pumpkin and Red Onion Pakoras from Spice Chronicles – Ok, so I managed to get another pumpkin recipe in. Who doesn’t love a pakora, eh, and I think pumpkin in a crispy pakora sounds delicious.
5 Etsy Finds
- Fluted Dinner Plate – I love the slightly Indian style to the floral pattern adorning this plate. Super affordable and would look beautiful in your home (or your food styling, bloggers!)
- Round Wooden Hot Pad – So I don’t know if it’s just a Bengali thing, but we use wooden pads underneath pots after all the cooking is done and you have to place the pot on the counter or table. These are way prettier though, very ornate with a little pedestal.
- Indian Dal Preprepared Fry Mix – You know you can get those cookie mixes in a jar to give as a gift? Well, this is the Desi version of it. Just add water and tomatoes.
- Tiny Metal Coffee Cups – A pair of Middle Eastern style distressed metal coffee cups. You get a sense of history just looking at them.
- Habibi Straw – A neon straw that reads Habibi (means beloved in Arabic) in a cursive script. Very cute gift for your spouse. Or you know, just for yourself.
