Royal curses, reincarnated goddesses, flirty detectives and vengeful robots - this month I contributed to PAPER/PLATES again, and this was a fun one!
PAPER/PLATES focuses on book-inspired recipes, and I created a spicy South Indian sambar inspired byThe Blaft Anthologies of Tamil Pulp Fiction. The volumes focus on the serialized stories that were widely popular in Tamil Nadu in the 1960s and 70s, and are perfect if you’re in the mood for pure entertainment. They’re a mixed bag of sexy, humorous and suspenseful - and they’re a fast read. What better way to mirror these traits than with a typical South Indian sambar? Sambar is a mixture of spicy, salty and sour - and so tasty it gets gobbled up fast.
