Sensory delights

Just in case you missed it, I posted one of my favourite winter soup recipes over at the sparkly new Harlequin Romance Authors site – Cardamon scented caramelised sweet potato and parsnip soup. Go HERE for the recipe.

One of the reasons I love this soup is the cardamon, which has to be one of my favourite spices. I always use green or black cardamon to make savoury rice and curry dishes. Fresh ginger and fresh garlic – both crushed into a paste or finely chopped – and cardamon pods, sizzling in the pan – oh, that aroma. Delicious.

And that is before I add the onions and other spices such as cinnamon, cumin and coriander. Wonderful.

Sensory anticipation of the meal ahead. Smell, touch, taste, sight, sound.

And if you love Indian food, the mega talented Nicola Marsh is sharing some of her Indian recipes over on her blog and guest sites as appetisers or ‘Bolly-Bites’ for her first single title book ‘Busted in Bollywood’ – which is still available. Neither are to be missed.

And you wonder why I write romance… snigger.
