Some things I am good at. Others? Not so much.

My mom brought some dhokla mix to share, and so instead of cooking it in a pressure cooker (like I think you’re supposed to), I cooked it in a big steamer pot and the result was a little mushy and not quite what I think it was supposed to be like. That is, it was crumbly and not very tasty. So I made some chutney (coriander) to go with it, and the husband was blending it and added more sugar because it was too spicy and now it tastes weird.

He calls it Green Evil. I don’t think this is too terribly off-base.

Well, anyway, he likes it and I like it sort of and next time I will cut back on both the chilis and sugar and maybe I will find it more edible. On the upside, though, we got to consume most of a fresh coconut, which was awesome.

So, in the end, chutney 1, Happygoth 0. Oh, chutney – I demand a rematch.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
