Though this may not be a baked good, it is one of the best side dishes you will need when making curry and is in my opinion a necessity in Indian cuisine.
During the weekend I went to an Indian restaurant and had an amazing raita which I knew I have to recreate but adding my own touch to it. We typically make a yoghurt sauce to accompany dishes like chicken tikka masala, biryani, “kalia” which is a Mauritian chicken curry dish famous for its incredible flavour and just regular curry.
If you didn’t already know this I can’t cook and I’ve finally decided to learn how to because I only know how to boil some pasta or cook a fried egg. I also know how to make “Mine Apollo” which is the best instant noodles there is in Mauritius if that counts?
So making a raita is the beginning of my cooking journey. I remember a couple of years ago I decided to try a unique twist on fried rice and in the end there was no flavour just a plate full of rice. I figured that cooking was too difficult for me and decided to stick with baking since then. Though I knew at one point I would have to learn how to cook and I guess the time has come.
Don’t worry there will still be loads of bakes on the cake architect and perhaps the odd savoury dish here and there.
