So happy to be learning more and more about world cuisine; especially India food and the spices used in various dishes. Found this blog post and have to reblog. Wouldn't be right to keep this cooking wisdom to myself.  😊

The best thing is that I love all of these spices and they can be easily be purchased via my online spice shop or probably at your local grocery store, depending on where you live.

#holifestival : Sweets : Holi Festival Recipes

About year ago, I became a member of a blogging community called LiteracyBase

It's where I do some of my personal blogging when not publishing posts to what my home business blogs (such as this blog, MyBlog Stop!, My Pain, Your Gain, My Shopping Channel) which also contain some personal posts (opinions and perspectives, etc.). 

This particular online community has an active group of members who hail from India and today is last day of a celebration or festival called Holi. I read some of the members' posts and noted that one writer expressed great enthusiasm about the “sweets” they enjoyed during this holiday. So? So you guessed it! I went on a hunt for Holi recipes. No surprise that I was able to find plenty at popular food blogs that I already like and follow from time to time. If you don't have the ingredients in your pantry or kitchen cabinets to make these tasty treats, you'll know for the next time.  This post will definitely go in my Google Plus World Cuisine Collection.  :)

The India-Africa Cooking Connection

For me, a hearty stew has always been the ultimate family-style comfort food. Prepare a big pot, fill the bowls of family, friends and honored guests, break bread, and chow down!! Such a meal can unite family and friends, make strangers feel welcome, and connect countries.





Indians love curry. Africans like peanuts. This tidbit of info gleaned from researching world cuisine, global flavors, and food history . 


* Michael Tracey is another one of my discoveries.

He hails from Johannesburg, South Africa , publishes a newsletter called "THE TASTE OF AFRICA", and is the author of "AFRICAN RECIPES", an ethnic cookbook .

The link below is to a Tanzanian recipe that links the #cultures of India and #Africa in every delicious spoonful.

Indian cuisine South Africa style blends Indian and African foods


Indian cuisine South Africa style blends Indian and African foods

South African Indian diaspora cuisine is deliciously distinct from that found in India itself. South Africans of Indian origin are generally descended either from South Indian people who arrived in the 1860s to work on the KwaZulu-Natal sugar plantations or from subsequent businessmen who came to service the retail needs of the farm workers.

African cuisine is as diverse as the hundreds of different cultures and groups that inhabit the continent. This diversity is reflected in the many local culinary traditions in terms of choice of ingredients, style of preparation and cooking techniques.

Indian Food - Myth or Fact

Do you like Indian food? I do! Although must admit, had to acquire a taste for it. My first time trying a so-called authentic Indian dish was at one of those American mall-type food courts, where there are all kinds of restaurants for you to choose from. That probably wasn't the best place for me to get my first taste. Was taken aback by some sort of flavor or spice that my palette was clearly not expecting. It threw me off!


Later on, when cooking channels became so popular on television, started learning how to prepare Indian dishes. There was the one lady who referred to herself as a “spice goddess”.  Because really it comes to cooking, Indians do know their spices.  No argument.  Her recipes always seemed so simple, easy to prepare, and she explained the herbs and spices she used for flavoring and showed you how to incorporate them into the recipes.  Crush these seeds.  Warm this spice in the pan.  Sprinkle these herbs.  Decided to try Indian food again and was very pleased with the tasting tests.

Below is a link to a blog post that eliminates common myths about Indian food. Didn't know there were myths but good to know they can be ignored. What were some of the myths?

  • All Indian food is spicy.
  • All Indian food is vegetarian.
  • All Indian food is overloaded with curry.
