I feel strangely compelled to make every vegetarian recipe Belle posts. That squash casserole sounded weird but it was really good. I saw this and immediately started hunting through the spice drawer for cumin seeds and coriander leaves, as if by reflex.

making Ghee sounds scary. Google's top hits have me lighting buttery paper on fire.

If you have a recipe for Palaak Paneer, this would officially be the best website evah.

Alas, Dave cannot make your bolognese recipe, but it was first-rate. The chicken livers really do seem to be essential...


I've tried to make the "paneer" part of palaak paneer, and I can't get it to turn out right. It always comes out too cottage-cheesy in texture.

    We're testing a strong CC license as a form of troll repellant. Does that sound strange? Read this thread. (I know, it's long. Keep scrolling. Further. Further. Ah, there.) So basically, we figure trolls will recognize that selling coffee cups and t-shirts is the best revenge, and will keep away. If we're wrong about that, at least someone can still sell the cups and shirts. (Sigh.)
