I can show you what was happening in my kitchen Saturday, but I can’ttell you the details.
Seriously, I promised. So I can show you some pictures, but I strategically didn’t show the right amounts of ingredients, and just won’t even tell you the spices or the times involved. What I can tell you it was delicious. Also a couple of things about mincing garlic and chopping onions.
Have you used the two bowl trick to peel a lot of garlic at once? Take two bowls of about the same size, metal if you have them, Place cloves of unpeeled garlic in one bowl and place the other bowl over it, rim to rim making a dome. Shake that dome about 10-20 times. Separate the bowls and the garlic skins slip right off.
My friend Kelly and I went to a knife skills class and one thing we took away was another trick to chopping onions. Slice off a bit of the stem end, and place on that flat surface. Leaving the root end intact, cut the onion in half through the center of the root.
