What is hiding in there? Weel, some leftover meatballs from the other day.
This is the first time I think I really nailed an Indian dish. Normally there is that little something missing, but this time I think the depth of flavour was there.
In my head, I am comparing it to a dish I had last week, when I went with a colleague to a restaurant near the office. The version there was excellent in flavour and the inspiration for tonight’s experiment. In contrast to my version, however, it was radioactive red; nevertheless, I think my humble interpretation is not lagging behind in flavour.
Ah, a real Italian dish… NOT! But still a very tasty and comforting dish to warm a chilly and rainy day in June. This is a Jamie Oliver’s recipe that you can find in his book Jamie’s Ministry of Food, subtitled Anyone Can Learn to Cook in 24 Hours. I own a German translation of this book: I bought it in the vain hope it will improve my German. It did not. I wonder if it taught anyone to cook in 24 hours…
It seems that Australia claims this recipe as its own; there, these small coconut dredged cakes are known as lamingtons. In Croatia, we have a similar cake—and when I say similar, I mean the same—and we call it čupavci. The Croatian version I know does not have a chocolatey centre, but the lamington version that I found does, so I decided to give it a go.
This is a proper romantic dinner, and not too cumbersome to make.
How about that for an unpretentious title?
