PURIS AND PICNICS

image These crisp little flat breads are delicious and so easy to make. They have cumin seeds in them and consequently have a lovely aroma. I wish I had taken photos of making them but I didn't think of it. The whole meal only takes a few minutes to cook, once you have the dough ready, so you really need 2 people - 1 to grill the puris and 1 to cook the rest, otherwise you will end up burning the puris as they puff up and brown very quickly.
I will put the recipes on Gardeners' Gastronomy. Of course you can serve them with anything but for some reason I always forget about them unless I am cooking this seafood recipe I adapted from Rick Stein's Seafood Odyssey.
image Here are Hugh and Amelia having that picnic I mentioned before. You can see the lovely salad they made from the things from my garden and the trout Hugh smoked and bread etc we bought together at the market. They took the photos especially for the blog - Amelia loves reading it! That is amazing, I think.

This hill where they are picnicking is just a short walk from our home. The view of the whole of Adelaide and the coast from north to south, from this ridge is almost 360 degrees.

Wasn't there supposed to be some expensive French wine? Can't seem to see it!
Nice spread. I love picnics.

I think the expensive wine had to be abandoned when I wouldn't pay for it! I did notice a couple of empty expensive-ish beers in the basket when they got back to the house though! Then, of course, they opened a bottle of OUR wine and had it with OUR expensive French cheese!

Kate, What's with the squares and most of the words missing or is only on my computer!

Okay where are the recipes?
I can add my fenugreek (methi) to this bread.
