Glossary of Indian Ingredients



On the comments Jennifer had a good idea of a glossary for the ingredients as she had to look them up so here goes, any time you see ingredients in the recipes and your not sure what it is leave a message I would love to help. Before I meet my hubby I would have been clueless!
  • mustard seeds- little black seeds very common in South Indian cooking, can get in Indian store 
  • urad dal, also used to make dosa/idly
  • curry leaves can be found in Indian stores and grown in Florida they give a lovely flavor and aroma to cooking.
  • aestofida or hing comes from a gum of a tree and is used as a digestive aid, my Mum in Law adds to almost everything to prevent gas!
  • turmeric
