    there’s a curry I make that’s got a texture close to ground beef chili with 100% less beef. I can post the recipe if anyone is interested but there are like a zillion ingredients so I’d rather there be actual interest before I do.

        Here’s the recipe. You can make a half recipe the first time to figure out if you like it.

        • 2 cup green or brown lentil
        • 1 cup urad dal
        • 1 cup split peas

        Rinse all beans and peas until the water runs clear and set aside.

        • 1 tbsp soybean oil
        • 1 tbsp fennel seeds
        • 2 bay leaf
        • 2 green cardamoms
        • 1 clove
        • 1 inch whole cinnamon stick
        • 1 star anise

        Heat up oil in a big pot or a pressure cooker and add whole spices. Stir fry on medium low heat while you chop onion.

        • 2 medium sized onions, coarsely diced

        Add onions and keep stir frying. Adjust heat if needed to keep a low sizzle going throughout this.

        • 10 fresh jalapenos, veins and seeds removed, coarsely sliced into ~4 pieces each
        • 1 medium carrot, ~150 grams, peeled and sliced to taste
        • 1 celery stick, coarsely chopped, optional

        Add these ingredients as you chop them and keep stir frying enough to prevent burning.

        • as much cabbage as you want
        • 2-8 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
        • 1 tbsp ginger, finely chopped
        • 1 28 oz can tomatoes, any kind you like
        • 2 tsp turmeric powder or curry powder
        • .5 tsp black pepper
        • 1 tsp masala
        • 1 tsp paprika
        • 1 tsp fish sauce
        • Iodized salt to taste

        Add the mixed beans, enough water to cover them by 1 cm, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cover and stir occasionally and add water if needed. If cooking in an instant pot, give it 15 minutes on high pressure and wait for the pressure to come down for an hour. Otherwise cook until the beans are soft.

    My go to recipe is a screw driver. One packet of orange tang, one pint vodka, one cup of water. Shake well. Chill before serving.

    Getting good at making a simple pasta or rice can be super useful. I like making a Mexican bowl with beans, capsicum, beef mince, garlic and whatever else and then either having it with rice or corn chips etc

    When I was in university I made my own creation: Poor Man’s Tuna Casserole. I’m a terrible and lazy chef.

    Step 1: Make a batch of Mac-n-Cheese (KD or offbrand KD if you’re Canadian).

    Step 2: Add a can of tuna (or a portion of a can if you are poor 😉)

    Bon appetit!

        I’m taking about instant noodles. There are Korean ones I found recently that are extremely spicy. They are called nongshim or something like that. Soya chunks I just buy from the store and chuck them in the water as it is boiling.

  • The one recipe I make, more than any other, is bread. It’s fast, simple, and aside from being a nearly every-morning staple, it forms the basis for many if our lunches. I make this once a week, throughout the year, and I doubt we make any other single, non-trivial recipe more frequently.

    Unless “martini” is a recipe.
