Eat– for Good Health

Last weekend our church (St John Neumann in Irvine, CA)  hosted an ethnic food fair, and the preparation of many loved dishes take a long time to prepare.  Indian food takes on the average two days!  Flavors need time to marinate and blend.  Admittedly, I cheat by using a frozen entry.  There are several available in frozen food sections of supermarkets.  I braise extra tofu and add more of whatever vegetables are within the package.  My meals turn out really good, and I encourage cheating if you like Indian food as much as I do. Amy’s food tastes so good because it’s made from the kind of real food ingredients that people use in their own kitchens…no additives, no preservatives, no GMOs.  One package has enough favor for two to three servings which is stretched with added fresh ingredients.

    Kathleen, that’s right, I like to know where people came from and that usually leads to interesting conversations. One of our sons, Max, has a close Indian friend (met at church but goes to the same middle school). Alex Patel says his family also practices some Hindu. Blends are common with any religion.

    Absolutely, Mary Alice. Beliefs are fluid. Hinduism alone has many paths to the Limitless One, Brahman. There are many dieties, but they all focus on Brahman.

    Hinduism of the subcontinent has an amazingly rich history. Gurus come from all castes, and it seems there are contractions except for one notion– a thing is or is not and can’t be both.

    It is, Melinda– of Indian origin and is an unaged, acid-set, non-melting farmer cheese or curd cheese made by curdling heated milk with lemon juice or other food acid.

    Unlike most cheeses in the world, the making of paneer does not involve rennet as the coagulation agent. This makes it lacto-vegetarian. Rennet is an animal product.

    Hindus do not eat cow, but cows can be milked. Paneer is made from the cow in Northern India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
