Finally, the seeds are sown! 31 varieties of tomatoes are sitting nicely in their little pots. The capsicums and eggplants are snuggling up to them, too. Now there are 'only' the chillies, etc. to be sown. This year I put them straight on to the window sill. The previous years they sat closer to the fire first up, but I reckon as it is coming up to warmer weather, they should be just fine on the window sill.There is a bit of pressure for a good crop this season, as we are slowly running out of preserved tomatoes. By summer we will need to replenish the rapidly dwindling stock. Wish me luck!
(The two jars contain lemon pickles that are sun-cooking. 2 different recipes, hence the difference in colour.)
On Saturday we visited Maggie & Bob's garden where the fenugreek was trying to take over their garden bed. Maggie very generously cut us a heap of fenugreek and while she was doing that I was already looking forward to Methi (fenugreek) Chicken. Over at Cosmic's place, I had bookmarked this recipe and was itching to try it. Perfect opportunity.
It is a ripper of a recipe! We loved it. Thanks, Cosmic, for this recipe. We will make this again very soon.
The fenugreek turned translucent after being quickly fried. Fascinating stuff.
Served with naan and raita. Absolutely delicious!
