The next Saturday arrives with another guest post. This time, it is the very talented Priya Elias who blogs at “The Humpty Dumpty Kitchen“. I came upon her blog at the early stages of starting my blog and I really loved what I saw. First of all, I love the way she writes. There is a hint of humor in each line that she jots out that you can’t but help laughing. She calls herself a lazy bone but the pictures on her blog states otherwise. At least she takes the effort to take such beautiful pictures and arrange her food in a lovely way. That is definitely not the sign of a lazyhead but an extremely talented food blogger. This is the fifth in the series of guest posts on my blog. To see those that have been featured till now, you can refer here.
First. let’s get to know a bit about her, before we move on to the recipe. Don’t these pies in the pot look amazing? I’m sure I would never be able to stop at one. While she was working on this post, she emailed me asking if it would be appropriate to include gelatine into the recipe. I was quite impressed about her presence of mind. Yes, gelatine, being a meat based product, has to be Halal for Muslims to use. Being in the UAE, we are lucky to get Halal gelatine produced under Gelita brand and we also receive quite a bit of sweet and jelly products based on gelatine. I’ve in fact used gelatine in a few of my previous experiments. I responded back to her that it is OK, and she could go ahead with her initial plans.
