It's shrove tuesday/mardi gras/whatever. Hmmmmm.... being the queer vegan evolutionary biologist atheist, I'm not so big on Lent. But I've decided that if I'm going to keep one thing from my Catholic upbringing, it's going to be the fine tradition of eating pancakes for dinner on a wintery tuesday. Pakora pancakes (chickpea flour, baking powder, ground up flaxseeds, salt, asafoetida and the following roasted spices: cumin, coriander, fenugreek and ground cumin) under happy salty sauce (cumin, asafoetida, salt, green chili, onion-garlic-ginger puree, tomatoes, mushrooms, zuchinni tamarind). Is the singular of zucchini zucchino? That would be aubergine pickle on the side. Because aubergine pickle goes with everything.
the sound of pancakes: sometimes silence is nice.
