Most of the recipes I put up here in Panlasa are going to, for the most part, be without measurements. That’s because many of them are of dishes that I’ve been preparing for myself, family and friends for years and I just make them. Based on the amount I’m making – and I suspect this is the same with other cooks, home and pro – I just season according to taste. On some level, making these dishes time and time again, things become instinctive. So, for those of you who absolutely need teaspoon, tablespoon, cup and ounce measurements, I do apologise. On occasion, I may post a recipe that does have exact amounts of each ingredient. That’ll probably be because it’s a new one to me as well and/or I don’t make it that often so it hasn’t gotten into my muscle and gastronomic memory yet.
Anyway, if you do try any of the recipes I put up, do let me know how they turn out. If you add a twist of your own, let me know that too. I’d sure like to try it for myself.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy.
Lamb and Beef Curry. My interpretation of the curry my mother taught me how to make, which she learnt, I think, from either my Auntie Sakhina or my Auntie Nima . Click here for the recipe.
Apple Prumble. Or, what my wife wants me to call Apple Crumble Pie. It’s a blend of the two classic apple desserts and it’s neither overwhelming sweet nor oppressively tart. Click here for the recipe.
