Germans have some great food, much better than the English. Their Hams and Sausages are amongst the best. Not to forget the "Roast Boar" and Sour Kraut.

Agree with Selfdrive. You can choose not to like a cuisine, but please donít dismiss something as worst because you did not like it

Fish is simply the easiest thing to cook.

Yesterday on my way back picked up a fish. Does not matter which one as you can use any 750 gms to 1 kilo fish for this.
Asked the guy to remove the head. Clean the guts.

At home washed the fish. Put some slits.
I had some generic coriander and green chilly chutney. Added chopped garlic. Rubbed it into the fish.
30 mins later put it in a grill.

Enjoyed the simple dish.

Ah, my favorite! With sea fish like seer or pomfret, I steam in banana leaves or alu foil (if banana leaves are not available).

I tried you mother's pepper and fennel recipe with Pink Perch last Sunday. Amazing. Please do thank her on my behalf!

I am looking for a good Misal Recipe. I best like the roadside ones - where autoguys etc eat - where they have a big vessel cooking misal/usal through the day. Less stuff (other than the cut raw onions poured after cooking), mostly gravy but very tasty.

Carrot Halwa.


I had some unsweetened khova at home. There were some carrots as well.
So I made this dish based on my own idea of how to cook it. My wife did interfere, but that is something I enjoy.

Melted cooking butter. Tossed in some cashews and raisins. Removed them before they browned up.

Added grated carrots to the butter. Cooked till they were done in a closed dish.
Added khova. Mixed it in. Added sugar. Mixed it in.

Added some full cream milk.

Cooked some more.
Mixed the cahews and raisins.

Ready to eat.

A real noob question:

I have been advised against using Conventional Indian Gas Tandoor on cooktops made of glass.

How true is that?

Is there any work around?

Any help will be great help.

you are not going to like this post. It does not offer any help but asks you another noob question.
where did you get that tandoor from? rather, where can I get one from?

The tandoor is a family heirloom and has been there for ages. You can also find them at any kitchen appliances store. There are some branded ones but I have really little knowledge of the same.

The best option is to visit your local market which has local kitchen appliances or a kitchen appliance service shop and inquire. These are not that difficult to find, atleast in North Indian States.

Yes, the bottom rim is likely to scratch the glass. Simple solution - stick plastic 'feet', the kind that one finds below wooden table legs, to the bottom rim with superglue.

More than the scratches, it is the reflected heat that can crack the glass. Use a metallic overlay over the glass - either thick aluminum foil or if you use it on a regular basis an aluminum sheet 3mm thick.

As Aroy, rightly said, since the gas tandoor traps most of the heat inside it, it will heat up the glass quite a bit. Workaround could be a flat metal ring with 4-5 legs at the bottom, on top of which the gas tandoor is mounted. Think of a big steel plate, kept upside down, with a big hole cut out in the centre.

I have exactly the same gas tandoor that Akhilesh has shown in the picture above. I bought it from Indore. Had you requested it before Diwali, I could have got one for you since I just returned from Indore. If you cannot find one in Pune, you can easily get it from the North. A similar thing is available at http://www.wonderchef.in/appliances/...n-tandoor.html. The same one is also available at other online stores.
