An intermittent rambling about food - Number 1.

I went out for lunch on Sunday with my friend Gillian who treated me at a local Indian restaurant, Yuva. It got me thinking again about how/whether to change my diet a but before I go, whether to indulge now in all the things I won’t be able to eat once there, or to go completely vegetarian, or what. I know from Hilary’s experiences we are likely to get an Indian cookery lesson as part of the cultural orientation month we spend in Delhi. So I thought I might start an infrequent blog entry about one of my favourite subjects, namely food.

So to begin with here is one of my favourite recipes Oriental Pork Casserole which I just happen to be having today. It is a Delia Smith recipe from her How to Cook Book 2 – don’t be put of by the patronising title I’ve always found her recipes very easy to follow AND importantly they turn out like they look in the pictures.

This one doesn’t take long to prepare, it cooks in a pot on top of the stove and tastes gorgeous. It is a good dish to serve to guests as it cooks away merrily on the stove leaving you time to chat before sitting down to dinner. Or it can be prepared in advanced and reheated. Serve with plain boiled rice and whatever green vegetables you have to hand. Simple.


  1. Not only do I love eating Indian food...I love cooking Indian food!

    I am very excited to follow along on your travels and adventures. What an amazing trip you have going on. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Candy, I'll be dipping into a few of my favorites and experimenting with some new ones as I prepare over the next few weeks. I hope you'll try some along with me.

  3. Hey I'm ready...getting hungry any time! Photos too if you have time :)

  4. I'll try and get some photos in on the next one - after all I need to experiment more with this new camera. The trouble is the food gets eaten immediately I cook it - I do like to eat:)
