i’m still kind of disturbed by how closely this movie worked with the air force. disney’s monopolistic scummery had always been something that made me uneasy about them, but now they’re taking money from the armed forces to make them seem good? that is straight up propaganda and we should all know better at this point

I went to Japan 12 years ago and still dream about the Ebi Fillet-o from McDonalds there. So good!

Everything else I’d ever had from that bakery was transcendent, so I was pretty comfortable concluding that hot cross buns are just a really, really bad idea.

One of my absolute favorite things when I lived in Japan was the ebi fillet-o. It’s a shame it hasn’t made its way to America.

I wish they would just bring stuff like this to NA. I would legit eat these.

Goddamnit, McDonald’s, you bring this heavenly burger to Australia this instant. You’ll have this vegetarian buying it from you more times a week than is healthy for anyone.

One of the most magical things Indian cuisine has given us is the onion bahji. They come in a few different varieties - sometimes they’re little patties, sometimes crispy strips - but they’re always fantastic.

I guess my question is, “What marketing genius has decided that deep-fried cheese won’t sell in America, and how do we get them fired and replaced with someone more reasonable?”

Who would want a fried cheese sandwich? Oh wait, I just answered that question. Me.

It really is and it’s also really easy to make. Plus, members of the tiny terror brigade love ‘em (just remember to tone down the heat if they’re not used to or familiar with spicy stuff). I’m sure I have a mango chutney recipe and/or video rattling around somewhere. That stuff is the literal food of the Gods.

A lot of recipe sites say that but actual ricotta is made with whey left over from making other cheeses.  They’re really not that similar but paneer is really good in ricotta’s place in lasagna.

Turkish Delight is a bit of a let-down unless it’s coated in chocolate and served to a dame you’ve just dug out of the Arabian sands...

Paneer is also incredibly easy - and fun! - to make. I will say though, India has one special little trick up her sleeve when it comes to take-away food...well, three, actually. The first is the legendary samosa (legendary as far as I’m concerned in that they’re so nibblesome, no matter what time of day it is), the

We have made paneer many a Meatless Monday.  I would love to have a chance to try a fast food version of it on a burger any day of the week.
