So this post has been pending since the beginning of time 😎 and it is an important one since it talks about a few ingredients that are so crucial in several dishes, including my sourdough and other bakes.
Of course I have been postponing and procrastinating in my own delightful way 😏 but today I have decided to take the bull by its horns (or should I say cow, considering it is all about milk and its products) and deliver the goods.
It is a simple process that gives rise to basic items like sour cream, butter and buttermilk but yet there are many many people who are not aware or who have not tried out this method to obtain these at home.
Once you see how easy the technique is, you will never again buy any of these items from the store … at least not for your domestic use.
So let us whip up some excitement and see how the contents of an innocuous looking milk packet can bring forth some fascinating results.
We are now at the end of the ‘quadrology’ that began with the brands Hakka Chow Bangalore Pizza Company and Mad Mex which brought to us Asian, pizzas and Tex Mex cuisines respectively. These home delivery brands as I had mentioned, are the brainchild of Chef Vikas of Lounge Hospitality by Embassy Leisure. So the promised 4th cuisine from this portfolio, is here at last and this time it is our very own Indian … and North Indian to be more specific.
Chef Vikas is a good friend of mine and is a highly talented chef who has over two decades of work experience. He is well travelled and has journeyed across some of the best culinary capitals of the world. He is the man behind the iconic Sriracha and Sanchez restaurants, which are proof enough that whatever he touches will turn to gold.
Chef Vikas is a Punjabi himself and his Amritsari upbringing is sufficient cause to get us all excited about his home cuisine. Garam Masala brings to us North Indian delicacies with flavors as vibrant as that of the spice mix that the label symbolizes.
So let us now proceed to unbox the treats and though Chef has these 4 brands currently, we do hope they will expand their repertoire and delight us with more cuisines in future.
