Black and white cookies

The recipe is from very old date ; and it's born by chance, to consume leftover pastry scraps! Since then it has become a real catchphrase of my site, made and redone by many and also made in a two-tone tart version

It is a preparation very simple! Once the two black and white doughs have been prepared, it will take 10 minutes to make the base and carve the cookies! In this case I made some hearts, but you can choose to make black and white cookies from shape you prefer: stars, flowers, spring and Christmas subjects… to depending on the occasion where you have to prepare them!

Given their appearance, they are ideal together with Valentine's Day biscuits, to be prepared for February 14; but also for Birthdays, Children's parties, Baptisms, Christmas and from packaging and gifting (since they keep for a very long time)!

Aloo curry: cream of Indian potatoes – Gordon Ramsay’s version

aloo curry - cream of Indian potatoes


Potatoes, broth and spices: the ingredients list of this aloo curry is short, but I assure you that its aroma and flavor will be full of tasty nuances.

There are many versions of Aloo Curry, but the one I want to share with you is my favorite. “Aloo” which in Indian means “potato”, the undisputed protagonist of this fragrant and very simple recipe. A poor dish, but rich in taste.

ingredients for 2 people

WHAT

  • 300 g potatoes (peeled)
  • 1 tablespoon of seeds (black mustard, cumin, coriander and nigella)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of mixture of Madras curry*
  • 3 cm of fresh ginger
  • 1 large shallot
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth
  • parsley to serve
  • a few drops of coconut milk or Greek yogurt
  • Salt to taste

HOW TO PREPARE AN ALOO CURRY – INDIAN POTATO SOUP

First, I toasted the seeds in a large pan, then I combined the oil and the powdered spices. This step is essential to express all the aromas of the spices.

I combined the sautéed shallot, ginger and garlic, peeled and finely chopped and, after a few minutes, I added the potatoes. I let them brown for a couple of minutes, then I covered with the broth, lowered the heat and cooked (if necessary you can adjust with a little water).

At the end of cooking I blended almost all the potatoes with an immersion blender, leaving some whole for a chewable effect, I put it back on the fire for another 5 minutes and I served with fresh parsley (or coriander, if you like) and a few drops of milk coconut.
