Mega easy und Lecker: Tandoori Blumenkohl und -Kartoffeln
Für 2: 1/2 Blumenkohl in eher grosse Röschen teilen (Strunk mit verwenden!), 2-4 Kartoffeln je nach alter schälen oder auch nicht, in grobe Würfel schneiden.
Ofen auf 220°C Heissluft vorheizen.
In einer Schüssel 1-3 EL indische Gewürzmischung* mit 3 EL Öl vermischen. (*Ich hab eine Sambar-Mischung aus dem Asialaden benutzt, die war ziemlich feurig! Ansonsten auch eine Garam Masala Mischung oder einfach ein Currypulver, plus Chilipulver nach Belieben)
Alles mit 2 Löffeln gut vermischen, auf einem Blech mit Backpapier verteilen und für ca. 30 Min. ab in den Ofen. Gegen Schluss evtl. noch die Ofentür einen Spalt offen lassen (Kelle einklemmen), damit der Dampf entweichen kann. Alles sollte schöne Farbe bekommen und etwas knusprig sein.
Dazu passt Joghurt mit Gurke und Minze oder ein Chutney zum Dippen. Hatte ich aber nicht, dafür gabs noch einen grossen Salat dazu.

With its perfect balance of tangy, sweet, and spicy flavors, this delectable dish combines succulent pieces of chicken with a flavorful sauce. In this blog post, we will dive into the origins, ingredients, and preparation of Chicken Manchurian, along with some tips for achieving restaurant-quality results at home.

2023.06.08 18:35 KrishNews The Amazing Culture and Lifestyle of the UAE A Student’s Perspective

The Amazing Culture and Lifestyle of the UAE A Student’s Perspective
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a country that offers a rich and diverse culture and lifestyle for its residents and visitors. As a student who has been living and studying in the UAE at the Britts Imperial University College for the past year, I have been amazed by the beauty, hospitality, and tolerance of this nation.
The UAE has a culture that reflects traditional Arab and Islamic values, as well as influences from Persian, Indian, and Western cultures. The UAE is home to people from over 200 nationalities, who live and work together in harmony and respect. The UAE also celebrates its heritage and history through various festivals, museums, and monuments.
Some of the cultural aspects that I have enjoyed learning about are:
Social life:
The Emiratis are very friendly and hospitable people, who value family, friendship, and community. They often invite guests to their homes for coffee or tea, and serve dates, nuts, and sweets. They also greet each other with a handshake or a kiss on the cheek, depending on the gender and relationship. They dress modestly and conservatively, especially in public places. Women wear a long dress called an abaya and a headscarf called a shayla, while men wear a long white robe called a kandura and a headscarf called a ghutra.
The UAE has a vibrant art scene, with many talented artists, galleries, and museums. The UAE also hosts international art events such as Art Dubai and Sharjah Biennial. Some of the traditional art forms that I have admired are pottery, weaving, metalworking, calligraphy, and henna. These art forms showcase the craftsmanship, creativity, and aesthetics of the Emirati culture.
The UAE cuisine is a fusion of Arabian, Persian, Indian, and Western cuisines. It is rich in spices, herbs, rice, meat, fish, and vegetables. Some of the dishes that I have tried and loved are hummus (chickpea dip), falafel (fried chickpea balls), shawarma (meat wrap), makbous (rice with meat or fish), biryani (rice with meat or vegetables), luqaimat (fried dough balls with date syrup), and kunafa (cheese pastry with sugar syrup). The UAE also has a coffee culture, where coffee is served hot, strong, and sweet in small cups.
The UAE has a lifestyle that is modern, cosmopolitan, and dynamic. The UAE offers a high standard of living, with excellent infrastructure, education, health care, entertainment, and security. The UAE also has a diverse natural environment, with deserts, mountains, beaches, islands, and oases.
Some of the lifestyle aspects that I have enjoyed experiencing are:
The UAE has some of the most stunning and innovative architecture in the world. The UAE boasts of iconic landmarks such as Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world), Burj Al Arab (the most luxurious hotel in the world), Palm Jumeirah (the largest artificial island in the world), Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque (the largest mosque in the country), Louvre Abu Dhabi (the first universal museum in the Arab world), and Dubai Frame (the largest picture frame in the world).
The UAE has a passion for sports, both traditional and modern. The UAE hosts international sporting events such as Formula One Grand Prix, Dubai World Cup (horse racing), Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, Dubai Tennis Championship, Dubai Rugby Sevens, and Abu Dhabi Triathlon. Some of the traditional sports that I have watched and participated in are camel racing, falconry, dhow sailing (wooden boat sailing), horse riding, archery, and desert safari.
The UAE has a lot of options for recreation and entertainment for all ages and interests. The UAE has world-class malls, cinemas, theaters, parks, museums, beaches, and resorts.
The UAE also has some of the best theme parks in the world such as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi (the fastest roller coaster in the world), Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi (the largest indoor theme park in the world), Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi (the largest water park in the Middle East), IMG Worlds of Adventure Dubai (the largest indoor theme park in the world), and Dubai Parks and Resorts (the largest integrated theme park destination in the Middle East).

2023.06.08 18:05 sleepyinsomniac7 What wines pair well with spicy foods

I'm talking about pairing with spicy dishes from Mexican or Indian or Persian cuisines. Maybe east and south east Asian as well, but I wouldn't club that in with the other category.
A very good friend's family was from Eritrea and he made some shorro, which was great, i still remeber the flavor, it was very interesting. I'm gonna try to recreate the shorro he made, but I'm also going to make a curry I think for dinner.
What wine would you pair with shorro and/or an Indian curry?
Maybe wine might not even be a good option considering it's not from those parts of the world. I'm new to wine, and I thought I could ask the experts, thanks!
Edit: it's shorro
Edit: Thank you so much for your replies. This community has always been very helpful. I'm going to set aside some time to learn more about this, and follow up the information from the replies.

2023.06.08 17:58 Lehrasap It is a shame that schools and universities don't teach students about the incredibly inspiring 14 EDICTS of Ashoka who didn’t follow any religion but an agnostic/deist

Please don't miss reading these 14 Edicts. If you are a proponent of humanity, you will find great enjoyment in reading them.
The Edicts of Ashoka consist of 33 inscriptions commissioned by Ashoka the Great, an Indian ruler. These edicts were meticulously engraved on pillars, large stones, and cave walls, making them accessible for public reading. Despite being created over 22 centuries ago, the principles of humanity conveyed in these edicts demonstrate remarkable advancement for their time.

Edict I
King Ashoka, has caused this Dhamma edict to be written. Here (in my domain) no living beings are to be slaughtered or offered in sacrifice. Formerly, in the kitchen of King Ashoka, hundreds of thousands of animals were killed every day to make curry. But now with the writing of the Dhamma edict, only three creatures, two peacocks and a deer, are killed, And in time, not even these creatures will be killed.
Edict II
…everywhere has King Ashoka, made provision for two types of medical treatment: medical treatment for humans and medical treatment for animals. Wherever medical herbs suitable for humans or animals are not available, I have had them imported and grown. Wherever medical roots or fruits are not available I have had them imported and grown. Along roads I have had wells dug and trees planted for the benefit of humans and animals.
Edict III
Decree concerning inspection tours by Ashoka's officials to instruct the populace in Dhamma and policy of non-violence and benevolence toward all.
Edict IV
Decree concerning non-violence. Notes how heavenly signs were absent in the past when the king pursued violent means to achieve his ends but now, having adopted a policy of non-violence, heavenly signs are appearing again as celestial approval. Discusses the importance of Dhamma and right behavior toward all. Instructs his successors to adhere to Dhamma and uphold Ashoka's vision.
Edict V
King Ashoka, speaks thus: To do good is difficult. One who does good first does something hard to do. I have done many good deeds, and, if my sons, grandsons, and their descendants up to the end of the world act in like manner, they too will do much good. But whoever amongst them neglects this, they will do evil. Truly, it is easy to do evil. [The remainder of the edict addresses compassion for convicts and their families and the proper application of and instruction in Dhamma].
Edict VI
King Ashoka, speaks thus: In the past, state business was not transacted nor were reports delivered to the king at all hours. But now I have given this order, that at any time, whether I am eating, in the women's quarters, the bed chamber, the chariot, the Palanquin, in the park, or wheresoever, reporters are to be posted with instructions to report to me the affairs of the people so that I might attend to these affairs wherever I am. [The remainder of this edict emphasizes Ashoka's availability to all, how he intends to settle debates in council chambers quickly, and his commitment to the welfare of all his subjects].
Edict VII
King Ashoka, desires that all religions should reside everywhere, for all of them desire self-control and purity of heart. But people have various desires and various passions, and they may practice all of what they should or only a part of it. But one who receives great gifts yet is lacking in self-control, purity of heart, gratitude and firm devotion, such a person is mean.
Edict VIII
In the past, kings used to go out on pleasure tours during which there was hunting and other entertainment. But ten years after Beloved-of-the-Gods had been coronated, he visits and give gifts of gold to the aged, visits to people in the countryside, instructing them in Dhamma, and discussing Dhamma with them as is suitable. It is this that delights King Ashoka, and is, as it were, another type of revenue.
Edict IX
Decree concerning proper and improper ceremonies. Ashoka claims that many ceremonies – those engaged in without proper understanding of Dhamma – are “vulgar and worthless” but Dhamma ceremonies, by those fully informed, bear the greatest fruit. He describes such ceremonies as involving “proper behavior towards servants and employees, respect for teachers, restraint towards living beings, and generosity” as well as right behavior toward relatives, friends, and neighbors. He concludes by noting how, even if Dhamma may seem to have no effect on this world, it does in the next but that when Dhamma is clearly seen to achieve its purpose, it does good in both this life and the one to come.
Edict X
King Ashoka, does not consider glory and fame to be of great account unless they are achieved through having my subjects respect Dhamma and practice Dhamma, both now and in the future. For this alone does King Ashoka, desire glory and fame. And whatever efforts King Ashoka, is making, all of that is only for the welfare of the people in the next world, and that they will have little evil. And being without merit is evil. This is difficult for either a humble person or a great person to do except with great effort, and by giving up other interests. In fact, it may be even more difficult for a great person to do.
Edict XI
King Ashoka, speaks thus: There is no gift like the gift of the Dhamma, (no acquaintance like) acquaintance with Dhamma, (no distribution like) distribution of Dhamma, and (no kinship like) kinship through Dhamma. And it consists of this: proper behavior towards servants and employees, respect for mother and father, generosity to friends, companions, relations, Brahmans and ascetics, and not killing living beings. Therefore, a father, a son, a brother, a master, a friend, a companion or a neighbor should say: “This is good, this should be done.” One benefits in this world and gains great merit in the next by giving the gift of Dhamma.
Edict XII
Decree concerning religious tolerance and mutual respect among adherents of different faiths. Ashoka condemns the practice of elevating one's own religion at the expense of someone else's: “Growth in essentials can be done in different ways, but all of them have as their root restraint in speech, that is, not praising one's own religion, or condemning the religion of others without good cause. And if there is cause for criticism, it should be done in a mild way. But it is better to honor other religions for this reason. By so doing, one's own religion benefits and so do other religions, while doing otherwise harms one's own religion and the religions of others. Whoever praises his own religion, due to excessive devotion, and condemns others with the thought 'Let me glorify my own religion', only harms his own religion…One should listen to and respect the doctrines professed by others.” The edict concludes with the admonition that an individual's religion grows through Dhamma and so all faiths are improved by tolerance and understanding.
Edict XIII
Famous decree concerning the Kalinga War in which Ashoka describes the aftermath of the campaign, repents, and describes how he now “conquers” people through Dhamma and the universal love and understanding which binds people together and leads to harmonious existence. It reads, in part: “King Ashoka, conquered the Kalingas eight years after his coronation. One hundred and fifty thousand were deported, one hundred thousand were killed and many more died (from other causes). After the Kalingas had been conquered, Beloved-of-the-Gods came to feel a strong inclination towards the Dhamma, a love for the Dhamma and for instruction in Dhamma. Now Beloved-of-the-Gods feels deep remorse for having conquered the Kalingas…Now it is conquest by Dhamma that Beloved-of-the-gods considers to be the best conquest…I have had this Dhamma edict written so that my sons and great-grandsons may not consider making new conquests, or that if military conquests are made, that they be done with forbearance and light punishment, or better still, that they consider making conquest by Dhamma only, for that bears fruit in this world and the next. May all their intense devotion be given to this which has a result in this world and the next.
Edict XIV
King Ashoka, has had these Dhamma edicts written in brief, in medium length, and in extended form. Not all of them occur everywhere, for my domain is vast, but much has been written, and I will have still more written. And also, there are some subjects here that have been spoken of again and again because of their sweetness, and so that the people may act in accordance with them. If some things written are incomplete, this is because of the locality, or in consideration of the object, or due to the fault of the scribe.

2023.06.08 01:49 NameInAHat 29[M4F] #Midwest - Life is what you make it. So let's make it the best together.

Let's explore the world together. Let's cuddle up together on the sofa while it storms and hold each other when we've got no other plans. Just make the most of every moment. Ambition, a thirst for knowledge and adventure, and a little competitiveness will go a long way to help.
I come from a big family of engineers and I'm an artificial intelligence software engineer myself, so I'm more than a little nerdy. Some people find me intimidating but I'm easy to get along with. I make friends fast and I've got a pretty large group that have all been hanging out regularly since college.
Movies are a passion of mine. Good movies, bad movies, all have their place depending on my mood. My favorite movie is the new Dune, with Blade Runner 2049 being a close second. It's safe to say Denis Villeneuve is my favorite director. I like complex, immersive movies that feel like they transport me to a new universe. It would be nice to find someone who feels the same way and wants to share that experience. Let's dissect the brilliant works of art and have fun laughing about movies that are so bad they're good.
I'm also a really good cook but bonus points if you know how to cook too or would like to learn. I'd love to have someone I can cook with. Cooking and good food in general helps me relax after a long day. Food is important in my family, especially seafood. Everywhere we travel we bring back new recipes. I cook from all kinds of different cuisine but in a normal rotation and no particular order, you'll see me making lots of French, Italian, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Mexican, and more. Parties are often planned around the food with everyone hanging out in the kitchen while it's made. You'll always eat well with me around.
I have a lot of other hobbies I switch between pretty often. It helps me prevent burn out on any specific thing. I pick up skills very quickly, so that definitely has something to do with having so many. Drawing, painting (digital, oil, and miniatures), DIY projects, TTRPGs, PC gaming, airsoft, wood/metal working, and more. I've even published my own TTRPG and I'm working on two more books for it.
I should probably mention I'm mildly allergic to cats.
If you made it through that wall of text, drop me a line. I love meeting new people and so does my dog.

2023.06.07 22:54 Embarrassed_Mess4402 Did you eat Indian food everyday growing up?

(not during school, but for breakfast dinner and weekends). I didn't eat it much at all and never really liked it much. But my husband is from India and my in laws have been visiting for the past 5 months and I've been eating it non stop. I am sick of it but they don't like any other cuisines. Just curious if eating Indian was the norm in Indian American households? We ate a mix of Mexican, Italian, Indian, American and Thai food.

2023.06.07 21:09 cheolkeong Interactive Veg(etari)an Dining?

Hey all, idk if I googled hard enough, hoping I can get some tips anyway since this wasn’t in the FAQ.
I’m really into interactive dining experiences. Korean/Japanese/Mongolian barbecue. Mongolian/Japanese hotpot. Revolving sushi bars. Less interested in what I would call “spectacle” experiences like hibachi where, while still special, you still just sit there after placing an order and wait to be served a finished meal. Also not a subway/chipotle/snappy salads type of thing where the interaction is simply going down the line to make your selections.
Is there anything like that that is vegan or vegetarian friendly?
Specifically in the United States, but ideally in North Texas? Most of these examples have some viable options but are heavily centered on non vegan items. I haven’t done fondue but I think that also is not vegan friendly at all. Maybe I need to venture into a new culture for something like this? Mediterranean and Indian food are also abundant near me.
More context below:
My dad very recently learned about factory farming and processed foods and hormones and meat-based carcinogens so he’s been cutting meat and dairy out. A year ago he would gag at the idea of my plant based tacos with plant based cheese, so it is a very sudden and sharp change.
My dad prefers “experiences” over gifts for things like Father’s Day and I’m brainstorming a 20 idea table that he can pick from or roll a shiny new d20 for. Figured at least one of the 20 ideas could be a uniquely fun vegan friendly dining experience.
I’m not vegan but I try to incorporate plant based foods for environmental reasons and for my husband’s lactose intolerance. I have the cilantro/coriander soap gene so I tend to avoid Mediterranean or Indian cuisine, but if that’s my best option I’ll throw it in the table.

2023.06.07 19:37 Apprehensive_Room530 Never had Indian cuisine before, but want to try..

Hi. I'm a 38 yr old woman who had never wanted to try any new foods for most of my life. I grew up loving Italian, Mexican, Chinese, and Cajun foods. Now, I noticed that there's an Indian restaurant that's so close to where I've lived for most of my life and I would like to try it sometime soon. Does anyone have any suggestions for me to try for my first time? If a meat is in the dish, I'd prefer chicken. Thanks in advance! :)

2023.06.07 19:13 EvanBlue22 Americans travel and interact with different cultures more than Europeans.

From what I've seen online, many Europeans seem to have this idea that Americans are purely self-interested, because we rarely (if ever) leave the states. This is often equated to intentional isolationism, vanity, and cultural ignorance. That argument is built upon rigged metrics that hide the reality of the situation. The cultural and biological diversity of the US is on a scale that may be hard to quantify if you haven't lived there for a long time. My theory is that some Europeans compare American travel habits to their own without first considering that interstate travel in the US is comparable to international travel elsewhere (both in distance and social norms). Cultural Diversity As I'm sure you're well aware, the US is a blend of numerous cultural identities from around the world. It’s one of the least homogeneous countries on earth. All of our major cities have massive portions that resemble foreign nations, both in architecture and residents. If you go deep enough into some of these areas, you will find large numbers of people that do not speak or read English at all. All the signage and literature in those areas will be written in the native language of the residents there. There are also large populations that half-integrate (for lack of a better term) into American society. This creates an entirely unique culture with blended norms and practices. This also impacts cuisine. Many authentic East Asian, African, Indian, Middle Eastern, Caribbean, Latin, or European restaurants have massive menus, because they keep all of the traditional recipes from home and then add many new recipes that adapt their ingredients to American food norms/tastes. America also has its own regional cultures that are extraordinarily different from one another. Traveling from Miami, FL to Atlanta, GA is such a massive cultural shift that it feels like a different country. Even though Florida and Georgia border each other, that trip is over 1,000km (three times the distance between London and Paris). The distances from state to state make the accents, norms, foods, and practices within them vastly different. Biological Diversity When I say biological diversity, I don't mean differing plant/animal life within the same biome. I mean entirely different biomes. The US is large enough that you can visit nearly every biome imaginable and never leave the country. That's mostly because it borders both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and has two states (plus a few territories) very far away from the mainland. The US is home to Tundras, Taigas, (Temperate/Tropical/Subtropical/Flooded/Xeric) Shrublands, Deserts, Boreal Forests, (Temperate/Tropical/Subtropical) Mixed Forests, (Temperate/Tropical/Subtropical) Broadleaf Forests, (Temperate/Tropical/Subtropical) Coniferous Forests, Mediterranean Forests, (Tropical/Subtropical) Rainforests, (Temperate/Tropical/Subtropical/Flooded) Savannas, (Temperate/Tropical/Subtropical/Flooded) Grasslands, & Mangroves. Our shores range from the warm waters of the Tropical Atlantic & Caribbean to the lethally cold arctic waters of Alaska. The only other countries that rival the US in biome variety are China, Pakistan, and maybe Australia. Pakistan is fairly small, leaving less room for temperature variance. The majority of Australia's biomes are similar in temperature and vegetation. China is really the only contender, which makes sense because they cover a similar amount of area and have about the same latitudinal range (excluding the Arctic coverage America gets with Alaska). However, China falls short in one key area: they're super homogenous ethnically.

At the end of the day, America is the only country with both factors, and that's why our country is the most varied in destinations. Everywhere in the states is unique. This country is just endless RNG with ethnic makeup and geography wildly changing every few hundred miles or so. For those reasons, I'd argue that traveling within the US offers a much wider variety of scenery and people than any European is willing to admit.
