A Beef With India | Nargisi Kebab | Soft-boiled eggs wrapped in flavourful minced beef, panko-crusted and deep fried. Here's a classic Mughal-era preparation, influenced by Persian food. It actually tastes better with mutton mince, but beef is often used. People say that Scotch Eggs are influenced from this (but Fortnum & Mason take credit for its origin). India is changing. Rapidly. History taught in schools (in some states, like Maharashtra) downplay the significant contributions of Islam and Muslim culture in the country. Several Indians develop opinions steeped in hundreds of years old conflicts. Banning beef is just one of those things. There are thousands of Indian beef recipes from several communities. I can recount snacking on beef udder kebabs served on a stick, in a Muslim ghetto in Kalyan, Mumbai. But beef isn't only important to Muslim people. The Anglo-Indians do salted beef tongue, the East Indians do oxtail curries, people in Nagaland do fascinating smoked beef preparations, while shredded beef pickles are found all over the country. Here's hoping some, if not most, of those recipes get saved somewhere. #ABeefWithIndia #BeefBan #Twitter #FoodTalkIndia #IndianFood #NargisiKebab #Kebab #Nargisi #ScotchEggs #Beef #MincedBeef #Mince #yeg #yefood

A Beef With India | Hyderabadi Beef Daalcha | 48-day dry-aged grass-fed rare striploin, tuvar daal cooked in beef and Parmesan rind broth, charred baby tomatoes, fried ginger and shallots, aromatics, ghee tadka, pansies. Parmesan to pair with the savoury flavour of the dry-aged steak. And yes, it was intentionally chopped to shape the southern third of India. #ABeefWithIndia #BeefBan #Twitter #FoodTalkIndia #IndianBeef #Daalcha #Dalcha #Dalgosht

A Beef With India | Pakthu | Cowrie in broth, 48-day dry-aged top sirloin, tomatoes, ginger and coriander. The Buddhist Bhutia people of Sikkim are known for their intriguing dough manipulations and the dimpled shell-shaped Cowrie is India's answer to spätzle while the humble broth takes me back to the chilly mornings of Kewzing, in Sikkim, staring at the cloud-kissed Kanchenjunga range. Nice savouriness from the dry-aged beef making this quite a special interpretation. #Pakthu #Cowrie #Sikkim #ABeefWithIndia #Twitter #BeefBan #TopSirloin #DryAged #dryagedbeef #Beef #Umami #Kewzing #Buddhist #Buddhism #India #ThisTooIsIndianFood #IndianCuisine #FoodTalkIndia #India #yeg #yegfood

Next four days is going to be a lot of music, mosquitoes, wine and cheese (and Saturday night steak tartare). Repost from @jal2.0 - #TBT to this time last year with my dear friend @bigaddie. True friends stand the test of time, and in this case distance too as seas separate us more often than not. I met this guy 6 years ago and it has been amazing to see all the twists and turns of both our lives in that relatively short time frame. Thankful mutual love of #YEG keeps bringing us back together. When you find a good one, you hold on to them. See you on the hill with this guy and @israel_alvarezm (Thursday and Sunday)! Message/text us. We love visits and have treats :). #friendship #throwback #yegfolkfest #music #bestdays #favouritepeople #goodtimes #vacation #summer #yegmusic #yegevents #yegpeople #thesedays #momentsofmine #lifeisbeautiful #momentslikethese #grateful

A Beef With India | Pasanda Shahi | Korean-cut beef ribs marinated in yogurt and aromatic spices and entirely slow-poached in ghee; Black mission figs, raisins and 80% moisture evaporated milk made into a jam, garden raspberry jam, birista shallots. This take on a classic beef preparation from Muslims in the Indian subcontinent is a great example of the dairy-beef play often used in India cooking. Poaching yogurt-marinated beef in milk fat, with all those tiny bits of caramelised milk solids forming a crust, is quite a special way of thinking how useful the cow can be. #ABeefWithIndia #HolyCow #Twitter #Pasanda #Beef #KoreanRibs #Ribs #yeg #yegfood #MuslimCuisine #IndianMuslimFood #IndianFood #FoodTalkIndia #FoodTalkMumbai

Pretty charming scene. #Sundays #Edmonton #yeg

A Beef With India | The Heart Of A Cow Murmurs. Just a bit of a word play here. Raw beef heart tartare with puffed rice (murmura), mustard oil, roasted cumin powder, toasted fennel seeds, fenugreek leaves and chives. Finished with pansies for joy and nasturtium for flavour. #HeritageDays #ABeefWithIndia #BeefHeartTartare #BeefHeart

A Beef With India | Filet Mignon Ularthiyathu. Pan-seared in coconut oil and finished medium with green peppercorn, spices, curry leaves and coconut. It's Heritage Day weekend here and we are encouraged to talk about our ethnic heritages. In India, beef is increasingly being banned state-by-state. Over the last six months, at least a dozen Muslims have been lynched by Hindu vigilante groups in the name of protecting the holy cow. Yet, India is the number one exporter of beef (including buffalo meat) in the world. I was born a Hindu vegetarian (but am clearly an atheist), so this isn't my heritage. I don't even eat a lot of beef, but I'd like for people in India to have the right. So, here's an interesting take on a classic beef recipe of India.

Indigenous varieties of cheese in India | Pictured here, kalari – a stretched curd cheese made by the Gujjars, a semi-nomadic dairy herding tribe in Kashmir. I'll be giving a talk at Cheese, 'Shapes Of Milk,' @slowfood_international'a biannual cheese conference in Bra, Italy, where I talk about some of India's native cheeses that have existed for centuries, if not millennia, in the larger subcontinent food culture. Today, though, you can read @avantikabhuyan's excellent piece in The Economic Times, talking about several indigenous varieties of cheeses in India.

Fun foraging day with @il_bacio and @light_bendr. Too bad we couldn't find dew berries or strawberries! Got some old favourites AND one I've seen for the first time!
1.) Wild hazelnuts! First time seeing these. About six weeks from harvest.
2.) Wild peas and pea flowers, always a joy :)
3.) Saskatoon berries provided us with much required sustenance through the forage ;). So many, and giant!
4.) Sour cherries (not sure of varietal. Anybody?)
5.) wild raspberries, of course.
6.) Rose hips, the fruit of the prickly wild rose flower.
