Lmao, dude if you’re American you need to get off the couch and walk down the street. We’ve got the best food in world if you take the time to look farther than the gas station McDonalds. My buddies and I regularly debate whether we want Indian, Pakistani, Japanese, or Chinese food for dinner and we can get to places that serve authentic fare of each culture inside of 20 minutes. The landscape is food and it’s delicious. If you want to sit on a couch spraying cheese wiz into your mouth and call it American cuisine, that’s on you. Me, I’m gonna go get some goat biryani.

Palau: Pichi Pichi

Pin 1 1 Shares
Pichi pichi (pronounce “pitsi pitsi”) is a mildly sweet snack originating in the Quezon province of the Philippines , that is commonly (afternoon snack) or simply as a dessert. It is a traditional Filipino dessert made with freshly grated cassava, which is steamed and then topped with freshly grated coconut. It is also popular in Palau .
Filipino food is truly a cuisine of multiple influences. The cuisine in the archipelago is mainly a mixture of Spanish , Chinese , and Malay and to a small extent has Indian traces as well. Filipino food is also very popular in the neighboring insular state of Palau.
A distinctive feature is that from savory to desserts, sugar in some form is added to the recipes. Filipino (Pinoy) dishes tend to have a sweet and savory taste profile. It is said that Pinoys are sweet toothed and they like to end a meal on a sweet note. The country also boasts about having a huge repertoire of sweet recipes.
Pinoys have a practice of eating in between meals. These small-portioned meals are called merienda , which is adopted from the Spanish culture during colonization. These can either be sweet or savory usually varying from region to region.
Pichi pichi is also considered a variety of kakanin . A sweet delicacy is called a kakanin if it is made with rice (or sometimes root vegetables), uses coconut products and most importantly the final product is sticky and chewy.
Kakanin ( kain means to eat and kanin means rice in Tagalog) is an umbrella term for Filipino gelatinous sweets and deserts. The glutinous rice cakes like suman , palitaw , sapin sapin , puto (all made with glutinous rice flour) are the common kakanin snacks served in between meals. Being a tropical country, it is a given that the sweet delights are mostly made of rice and coconut.
Pichi pichi has 3 main ingredients – cassava, the base or starch in the recipe, pandan extract/essence, acting as a flavoring agent and lye water, an alkaline solution to get the right texture. Cassava
Cassava, next to rice, being a tropical thrive is a staple and a main agricultural crop in the Philippines. Cassava roots are common throughout Asia. They are boiled, baked or fried. Recipes like puto lanson , cassava suman and nilupak are all made using grated cassava as the main ingredient. Cassava flour is also quite common in Filipino recipes and it is used to make dishes like cassava cake, pisti-pisti, landang , etc. Pandan
Pandan extract is the main flavoring agent in this recipe. Pandan, also known as screw pine leaves, are widely used in many South East Asian kitchens like Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Philippines. It is commonly known as Vanilla of the east. Due to its unique flavor and aroma it is used as a flavoring agent in many sweets and desserts. Filipino cuisine extensively uses pandan in many recipes ranging from savory dishes to desserts. It is especially paired with coconut-based sweets like buko pandan , elevating the flavor multi-fold.
The essence or extract can be bought from the store or can also be made from scratch using fresh pandan leaves. Boil the leaves in water, drain and blend the leaves to a smooth consistency and strain it. When called for, use this sparingly in the recipe. Lye water
The next main ingredient in this recipe is lye water solution, commonly known as sodium hydroxide. It is used in pichi pichi to get the right glazy texture.
Lye solution is mainly used in brewing and baking to raise the ph of the dough. This gives the finished baked product a beautiful yellow hue and the extra crispiness. It also breaks down the protein content, which speeds up the baking process. The secret ingredient to get the best tasting German pretzels and bagels is lye. It is also used as a curing and tenderizing agent and in desserts to get that commercial gelatinous texture.
Since it is a risky ingredient, at most care should be taken when handling lye. It should always be used in minimum recommended quantities and try not to touch with bare hands. But in minimal quantities it is perfectly okay to use food safe lye in cooking.
When you don’t have lye or skeptical about using it, substitute with baking soda solution. The closest substitute to lye water is baking soda solution. You can boil baking soda in water for 5 minutes. You can also bake the baking soda for one hour in about 250-300F. This makes the baking soda more alkaline and the reduced baking soda will have the same properties of lye.
In general, Filipino desserts are quite elaborate in preparation. With few ingredients and a straightforward recipe, pichi pichi is one of the easiest kakanin to prepare.
How to make a perfect pichi pichi – If fresh cassava is not available, you can either use frozen cassava or cassava flour instead.
– You can also add freshly grated cheese instead of coconut toppings. Roll the pichi pichi in coconut shreds just before consuming. Since it contains coconut, it doesn’t have a long shelf life. Store the plain pichi pichi in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer if you are not using it immediately. Just before consuming, roll it with your favorite toppings.
– Some also use food coloring or natural coloring agents like ube (purple coloured tuberous root) to make the dessert more colorful and exciting, especially for kids.
– If you don’t have access to pandan extract, you can also substitute vanilla extract.
– Some also use coconut milk or milk instead of water to make pichi pichi.

Cricket World Cup 2019: Where and what to shop in London

Image courtesy: ©alice-photo/Shutterstock
Though rather overrun with tourists, Covent Garden’s old market hall and surrounding piazza is still worth a visit for the buzz and the pretty architecture. But for actual shopping it is best to branch out into the side streets around the square where you’ll find a whole lot of cool fashion. Try Long Acre and Neal St for high-street chains, then literally sniff out Neal’s Yard Dairy for more than 70 varieties of cheese from the UK and Ireland, or head to Poste Mistress for fabulous footwear before taking a break at the Seven Dials column, watching other shoppers hurry past.
Shoreditch & Spitalfields
These East End neighbourhoods are the coolest areas to shop in London. Spitalfields Market (open daily) is where young, cutting-edge designers display their creations, or check out nearby Brick Lane, Dray Walk, Redchurch and Cheshire Streets for quirky shops, vintage dens and cool homeware. At Boxpark a series of shipping containers have been turned into a hip mini mall. Come here to search out small boutiques for something unique, or check out the numerous eateries for a quick bite. For something really different, try the once-monthly Hackney Flea Market.
Oxford Street Image courtesy: ©Maria Elena Pueyo Ruiz /500px
With its ocean of consumers, sprinkling of tacky souvenir shops and crawling traffic, Oxford Street, Europe’s busiest shopping area, can feel simultaneously overwhelming (thanks to its crowds) and underwhelming (regarding its offerings). But if you’re looking for a no nonsense shopping street and the headquarters of the chain stores, this is the place to visit. Alongside massive branches of H&M, Zara, Urban Outfitters and Top Shop are large department stores such as John Lewis, Debenhams and Selfridges. The section west of Oxford Circus, Oxford Street’s main intersection, is more appealing than the eastern stretch.
Regent Street, which curves away to the south from Oxford Circus, is a similarly busy but more upmarket affair (the likes of Burberry have big stores here, and Hamleys is always popular with families), and also a great spot to enjoy Christmas lights. Delve into the side streets to the east from here and you’ll find pedestrianised, uber-hip Carnaby Street, one of London’s most famous shopping streets which, along with the narrow, centuries-old tangle of lanes around it, has been revitalised over the last decade or so.
High Street Kensington
The less crowded, more salubrious alternative to Oxford St, this area, in the heart of one of London’s wealthiest neighbourhoods, has all the high-street chains, plus trendy stores such as Miss Sixty and Urban Outfitters. Snap up antiques along Church St.
Camden Market Image courtesy: ©Christian Mueller/Getty Images
Buzzy Camden Market is packed with stalls and is enormously popular – visit during the week if you want a quieter vibe. The goods themselves can vary in quality, but there’s plenty of classic alternative gear here. However, there’s no escaping the fact that it’s become more tacky than cool over the last few years. Still, the food options and canal views are worth the trip.
King’s Road
A far cry from its 1960s swinging heyday, well-heeled King’s Rd is now strong on household goods, with the Designer’s Guild, luxury interior design outlet William Yeoward and Indian-themed Opium. Children are well catered for at Trotters.
Knightsbridge Image courtesy: ©andersphoto/Shutterstock
Harrods is internationally famous and certainly the most eye-catching of the capital’s big department stores, so go and witness the exuberant food halls, dramatic ‘Egyptian Escalator’ and crush of tourists at least once. Harvey Nichols is nearby and, along with the designer stores lining Sloane Street to the south, is the go-to destination for cashed-up fashionistas wanting brand name clothing.
Marylebone High Street
Not quite exuding the villagey atmosphere it sometimes claims, this quaint and elegant street just north of Oxford Street deserves a visit for homeware stores such as Cath Kidston and food speciality outlets such as Ginger Pig, one of London’s best butchers, and cheese-ophile heaven, La Fromagerie, both on Moxon St.
The markets Image courtesy: ©Elena Dijour/Shutterstock
London’s markets are among its most appealing features. Foodie Borough Market is an established attraction, but younger alternatives like Broadway Market and Maltby Street Market are also worth a look. Columbia Road blooms with flowers on Sundays – come early (it starts at 8am) if you want the best selection with fewer crowds. In west London, Portobello Road Market is iconic and great for a stroll, while in the southeast, Greenwich Market is aimed at tourist looking for quality souvenirs and anyone with an appetite looking for a globe-spanning selection of cuisines.

How Did Chickpea Flour, A Staple Of Indian Cuisine, Become A Health Food Sensation? : The Salt : NPR

Opinion Food History & Culture How Did Chickpea Flour, A Staple Of Indian Cuisine, Become A Health Food Sensation? Facebook Twitter Flipboard Email May 12, 2019 7:00 AM ET Priya Krishna
Enlarge this image Chickpea flour is gaining attention thanks to its gluten-free binding properties. But the ingredient has been a staple of cooking for Indians, Pakistanis and many others for centuries. Pinkybird/Getty Images hide caption
toggle caption Pinkybird/Getty Images Chickpea flour is gaining attention thanks to its gluten-free binding properties. But the ingredient has been a staple of cooking for Indians, Pakistanis and many others for centuries.
Pinkybird/Getty Images There’s a specific section of my family’s fridge that is reserved for the large, seemingly bottomless tub of chickpea flour — or as we and lots of other Indians who also rely on it call it, besan — that my parents keep on hand. We’re not gluten-free, nor do we do a lot of baking. Yet chickpea flour shows up everywhere in our food. It’s the nutty coating for my mom’s green beans spiced with earthy ajwain , the key ingredient in her creamy, tangy, yogurt-based soup, kadhi , and the base for our favorite variety of laddoos , sweet, fudge-like balls flavored with ghee, sugar and nuts.
Across the many regional cuisines in India, chickpea flour is a common denominator: Gujaratis turn it into pudla , thin, savory crepes laced with turmeric and chilies. In Karnataka and Maharashtra, it can be found in jhunka , a spicy porridge. And in Andhra Pradesh, it is the thickener in Senagapindi Kura , an onion-heavy stew. For the country’s large vegetarian population, where eggs are often considered non-vegetarian, chickpea flour mixed with water serves as a convincing omelet replacement.
Indians — along with the Nepalese, Pakistanis, Italians, the French, and many others — have been cooking with chickpea flour for centuries. Americans, on the other hand, only seem to have woken up to the ingredient in the last decade or so. And they’ve woken up in a big way.
It’s hard to trace the exact origin of chickpea flour’s sudden popularity in the U.S. Anna Stockwell, the senior food editor of the publications Epicurious and Bon Appétit , said she first started seeing chickpea flour around 2009 on gluten-free blogs. Stockwell is gluten-free herself, and was excited to find a recipe for savory chickpea pancakes.
She didn’t know much about chickpea flour’s culinary heritage, but she was immediately excited. “Its binding power was magic,” she recalls. “All you have to do is combine chickpea flour and water, and suddenly you can make flatbread, or fritters or vegetable pancakes.” Still, Stockwell saw it as a niche ingredient — something only gluten-free consumers cared about. She wasn’t even allowed to call for it in Epicurious recipes.
Slowly but surely, that started to change. In 2010, one of the more popular recipes from Plenty , Yotam Ottolenghi’s bestselling cookbook, was a chickpea flour pancake, or socca , as it’s known in France, layered with tomatoes and onions. In 2015, food and fitness writer Camilla Saulsbury wrote the popular book The Chickpea Flour Cookbook . That was followed a year later by Chickpea Flour Does It All , by blogger Lindsey Love.
Lani Halliday, the founder of Brutus Bakeshop, a gluten-free Brooklyn bakery, says she noticed a huge uptick in the number of chickpea flour-based, gluten-free sweets available about a decade ago. For baked goods, chickpea flour worked uniquely well, “as it can hold air bubbles and hold moisture,” she says. Plus, “it was cheap, it was accessible, and it was versatile.”
Halliday launched her bakery in 2015. One of her bestselling items among both gluten-free and non-gluten-free customers was a chocolate cupcake made with chickpea flour.
Stockwell believes the mainstreaming of chickpea flour is directly linked to one company in particular — Banza. The company started producing its chickpea flour-based pasta in 2014, and by 2017, it was in 8,000-plus grocery stores and had raised $8 million in funding. The key to the company’s success? It didn’t exclusively market itself as a gluten-free product. Instead, it was branded as health food. And it was one of the first alternative pastas that had a smooth, al dente texture, just like the real thing.
“I had friends who had never heard of chickpea flour, but now they eat Banza,” Stockwell says. “It’s not because they are trying to eat gluten-free but because it’s a delicious and higher-protein pasta. It’s a substitute for empty carbs.”
This year, Epicurious was finally allowed to publish recipes with chickpea flour. Dennis Vaughn, the CEO of Bob’s Red Mill, says that in the past five years, chickpea flour has become a clear bestseller among the company’s sundry flour options.
“My grocery store doesn’t even carry red meat,” Stockwell says, “but they carry Bob’s Red Mill” chickpea flour.
The Salt How Bob’s Red Mill Company Became A Gluten-Free Giant Ahead Of Its Time In many ways, it has been weird to watch this ingredient that has always felt so quotidian to me become so ubiquitous so quickly in the U.S. This is certainly not the first Indian ingredient or dish this has happened to. Consider turmeric, chai, or khichdi , which have all been claimed by the wellness community and food bloggers as their own, often times without giving due credit to Indian cuisine. It baffles me that the vast majority of people I talk to are shocked to hear that chickpea flour has long been a common ingredient in my family’s cooking.
The Salt ‘Khichuri’: An Ancient Indian Comfort Dish With A Global Influence On the other hand, it was important to me when I was writing my new cookbook, Indian-ish , that people could find the ingredients for the dishes in their average grocery store. Because chickpea flour is now so common, I could include recipes like those addictive chickpea flour green beans, and the silky, soupy kadhi .
I’m not against chickpea flour entering the mainstream. But I wish that more of the stories I read about it, or the recipes I saw that featured it, didn’t frame it as a brand-new discovery, and completely ignore its heritage.
No one culture can “own” an ingredient — I’m literally writing this with a box of Banza chickpea pasta in my kitchen cabinet — but let’s not treat food like it exists in a vacuum. There’s context for that chickpea flour flatbread you’re making for dinner. Don’t take it for granted.

Everyone loves a takeaway.
Whether that’s a pizza, fish and chips or chicken tikka masala – there’s plenty of options to choose from in Swansea .
But before ordering, it’s important to know what the food hygiene rating is for your favourite takeaway.
We’ve put together a list of all of the city’s takeaways and ranked them by their food hygiene rating.
The scores are published on the Food Standards Agency website, and may be subject to change. What’s taken into account when judging a hygiene rating? How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored The condition of the building – cleanliness, layout, ventilation and other facilities How the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe
If a business is given a zero food hygiene rating, it means urgent improvement is necessary. If it’s given a five rating, the highest, it means hygiene standards are “very good”.
