nice to be able to cook again

In the aftermath of my foot injury, I really missed cooking. It's been satisfying to get back in the kitchen again.

Dinner tonight was leftover dal, tortillas (since I haven't yet tried making chapatis), and pattypan thiyal, a Keralan dish of zucchini cooked with onions, coconut, and tamarind. Very tasty, although as usual I had to boost the tamarind by about 4x from what the recipe called for.

The recipe's definitely a keeper, although only when the monkey isn't around — as far as he's concerned, tamarind is pure evil. (As opposed to pickles, which are cucumbers soaked in evil.)
