If you develop the habit of reading a lot of recipes at some point you cross over into a place where you start appreciating the creativeness of a recipe as an end to itself, as opposed to simply being a set of instructions that result in a hopefully delicious food. This is one aspect of cooking connoisseurship that I think sneaks up on most people. Maybe this is an unintended consequence of connoisseurship in general, the gradual appreciation of things that you had no idea were even there to be appreciated. I think this is mostly a good thing, life is as much process as it is destination and anything that helps you experience and appreciate that is good. On the other hand cooking is about creating food that is delicious or at least satisfying in some way and hopefully that doesn’t get lost.
When you read a lot a cooking blogs like I do, there is yet another layer of connoisseurship you end up developing and that is for the creativeness and attention to detail people pay to their food blog designs. Some people (unfortunately not me!) present their recipes in a way that, to be cliche, is a truly a feast for your eyes. The photography and general design almost compels you to drop everything and start cooking whatever is in the post.
Well that was a long introduction to this sublimely smart and simple recipe for strawberry sorbet with sweet mini-paratha rolls. The recipe uses frozen strawberries, frozen bananas, sugar and a little yogurt and the results are fantastic. The little parathas match the sorbet perfectly. There is no way whoever you make this for won’t be blown away. You couldn’t ask for simpler recipes and you don’t even need an ice cream maker for the sorbet. Last but not least I really love this website. Check out how beautifully this recipe post is laid out and how inviting the photography is. Hopefully you will be as inspired to try making some as I was.
Thank you Lakshmi!
