Haggis Pakora

Does the recipe require free-range haggis? Or is farm bred haggis alright?
When it comes time to hurl the haggis, those look like they'd hurt.
By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion
By the Beans of Life do my thoughts acquire speed
My hands acquire a shaking
The shaking becomes a warning
By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion

When it comes to farming, I don't buy from sources that perpetrate animal abuse. Haggis are being considered for recognition as sentient creatures. There's no distinction between Highland Haggis and Punjabi Haggis.

OK, this is an interesting one and with a fun name.

Kaiserschmarrn or Kaiserschmarren, translates to "Kaiser's Mess.


Quote
...Kaiserschmarren is a light, caramelized pancake made from a sweet batter using flour, eggs, sugar, salt, and milk, baked in butter. Kaiserschmarren can be prepared in different ways. When making Kaiserschmarren the egg whites are usually separated from the yolk and beaten until stiff; then the flour and the yolks are mixed with sugar, and the other ingredients are added, including: nuts, cherries, plums, apple jam, or small pieces of apple, or caramelized raisins and slivered almonds.

...The pancake is split with two forks into pieces while frying and usually sprinkled with powdered sugar, then served hot with apple or plum sauce or various fruit compotes, including plum, lingonberry, strawberry, or apple. Kaiserschmarren is eaten like a dessert, or it can also be eaten for lunch at tourist places like mountainside restaurants and taverns in the Austrian Alps, as a filling meal.

I have a recipe for that in some old cookbook - it was just called 'German Pancake'. You begin cooking it in a frying pan, then put the frying pan in the oven to finish it. It puffs up then collapses. It is quite nice, but uses a lot of eggs and needs two heated appliances, so heavy on power-usage. It is also quite heavy on the stomach - probably necessary in a German winter!

I remember seeing something similar, but not from India, but rather from the Far East.

What to cook on a campfire? I'm sorry for interrupting your conversation, but I have to leave in a week and I just don't understand anything about camping.

You can basically cook anything that needs to be grilled, fried or boiled.

Foods that go well with the taste of smoke, so meats, beans, cheeses and marshmallows.

Pasta is good as it cooks quickly and needs little attention. Baking potatoes [wrap in foil and put by the edge of the campfire till they're soft].

Lightweight, high energy foods if you're hiking.

And last but not least, Cobber's Caramel. Take one tin of sweetened condensed milk, put it in the dying embers of the fire or by the side of a burning fire at the end of the evening. In the morning open the tin and find it full of the most potent, addictive sugar hit known to humanity. [Just be careful to not put it in the fire because if it gets very hot it will explode]
I speak in syllabubbles. They rise to the surface by the force of levity and pop out of my mouth unneeded and unheeded.

This is a steampunk forum.

There is only one correct answer.

More often than not, fans of hunting, fishing, and marathon hiking on rough terrain need trivial warming. Therefore, the most common camping dish, of course, is soup. Forest or river soup at https://www.amazon.com/pie-iron-for-campfire-cooking/dp/B088H42W2L- is everything you can easily get on the road, take from home, as well as everything you can shoot or catch. There are a great many recipes for such soups. There are absolutely no secrets to how to prepare first courses in nature.

You just described the "modern" way to make the Latin American/ Mexican Dulce de Leche!

We've talked about it elsewhere in the forum, but I don't remember placing it here. It's indeed sauteed. It's called Mexican Truffle for a reason. It's a horrible sight indeed. But it's priced for it's taste.

I mostly know it for being used for stuffing in savory French style crepes (Crepas de Huitlacoche), a dish invented in Mexico by a chef around the 1950s if I'm not mistaken. The Huitlacoche is sauteed together with tomato, Serrano hot peppers, onion and zucchini (courgette).

It's hard to get here, though. So I haven't had a chance to do anything with it. Things like Huitlacoche and Zucchini (courgette) flowers only come in a can if you can find it, and I was sorely disappointed with the courgette flowers I found - because you need to sautee them fresh with a third ingredient which is also hard to get, Epazote (Mexican Tea)

Well, here's something I think I haven't posted:

In Latin cooking there's a fair amount of recipes that involve sauteing finely chopped vegetables and spices, usually including onions and garlic, which are s type of multi use seasoning called "sofrito," and it's the base for many dishes in Latin America. Sofrito, as the name implies is fried by default, so maybe I should start describing dishes based on this tradition as well.

Epazote is used in several types of dishes as part of the sofrito, and it's known to be used to make "Mexican Fried Rice" Also known as "Mexican White Rice." It's also used in a dish called "Requesón con Epazote" (Ricotta Cheese with Mexican Tea), which is something I should try, as It looks very easy to do.

(No translation needed for the first video)
