Banana Raita Ice Cream
I have a love-hate relationship with this piece of graffiti. I like how the author has placed it, and appreciate his use of a serif font. Is this wrong? Hate the blight.
Today I'm taking another crack at frozen desserts, turning Saturday's separated banana raita and making it into ice cream. Genius? I think so. I've wanted to do this for years. It's currently the consistency of sticky gelato and tasty as all get out. But it has some heat on it.
The inspiration is the banana raita recipe from Vegetarian Epicure II. Goes something like this: heat a small amount of butter in a pan. Add equal amounts of cumin, coriander, cayenne and cardamom powders. Remove from heat. Add mashed banana. Add spiced bananas to an equal amount of yogurt. Stir. Chill. Serve with hot food.
Tonight that'll be Everett & Jones.
