MY GRANDMOTHER’S MUD STOVE: Born into a Roman Catholic family as the eldest son, at a very early age I was exposed to the fumes and flames of the open fire mud cooking stoves (called ‘addupu’) that used dried coconut leaf, dried coconut shell and coconut husk as fire wood at my grandmother’s house. Sometimes dried mango wood and neem wood were used to make fire. Where if the fire fails to light up, blow several times into the fire or a quick dash of kerosene from the lamp was a solution. A hand held fan made of palm leaves was used to fan the flames to light the charcoal. Sometimes a long hollow cylindrical metal rod was also used to blow air onto the charcoal to help ignite it. Normally clay pots and wooden spoons (I am especially fond of the long cooking spoon with the dried coconut shell in the end) were used to cook food on ‘aduppu’. Most times you cough several times continuously, tears and nose drooling, sneeze then need to blow out the wet and blocked nose...........
MY EXCITING STORY: My dad who was an aeronautical engineer at the Indian Air Force took up a job with Gulf Air in Abu-Dhabi, UAE and my mum and sister joined him leaving myself and my brother in the care of the relatives, maids and for a while in boarding schools. But mum always made sure she wrote down all the home recipes she learnt from her mum; so I could cook while she was away. She also made plenty of homemade meat and fish pickles in big jars for us to enjoy while she was away. These meat and fish pickles were a blessing and the next best thing to mum’s cooking for us at that time. My love for pickles and chutneys started here. Later she taught me to make these delicious pickles myself. The meat and fish pickles I learnt from my mum has inspired me to create the jars I have developed today. The magical meat and fish jars branded ‘India in a Jar’ with a ‘Dash of Devon’.
I came to shop from my local market (Exeter Farmers Market at South Street every Thursday) which I try and visit every week ..... with the Fresh Root Turmeric with Black Pepper in Coconut Oil by India in a Jar... ..I made a lovely parsnip dish and my family loved it.....I add some coconut milk too and it was amazing....My sister is a nutritionist and she has already been telling me ...
I have been using the GINGER AND TAMARIND, FRESH GARLIC AND WITH MILD AND WRINKLED KASHMIR CHILIES and FRESH TURMERIC ROOT WITH BLACK PEPPER IN COCONUT OIL by INDIA IN A JAR India In a Jar is an excellent addition to my curries .I am a great curry maker and I love cooking curries........I find India in a Jar very good to add fantastic flavor to my curries that I cook.....and I sometime use them with cheese as a relish as they are both ready to eat and can be used in cooking.........
"I used the mass-market version of this product for years, but the flavors that are available here made it an easy choice to buy here instead. I love the variety!"
