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.
