Gingery Carrot Magic Sauce (Dressing)

I HAVE A CONFESSION TO MAKE: I’M AFRAID OF THE VEGETABLE GRATER. I have Gratophobia.

I know, it’s silly. It’s true. I avoid grating anything. I leave it as the last task in the kitchen. I have been known to bribe others, namely my niece and nephew to grate things on my behalf. Or I use the grating attachment on my food processor.

Avocado & Daikon Salad with Raai Strawberry Dressing

Avocado & Daikon Salad with Raai Strawberry Dressing

Let’s take a little trip down memory lane, shall we? Today’s memory is gardening. It was prompted by the view from my bedroom window. This year’s garden is on its last legs. It happens every year – the sunlight grows a little less warm, leaves and vines become wilted and turn brownish.

This change in the seasons reminds me of how the whole process started. It jogs memories from the past and how early spring meant getting up extremely early (too early for a little kid to be up) and planting. Dad was the gardener in the family. My mom assisted here and there, but Dad was the one diligent about remembering to water and weed.

Fiery Bengali Mustard

Fiery Bengali Mustard

Just wrap your head around the title of this recipe for a moment. Homemade mustard with fiery Bengali spices. Oh-em-gee.

For me it’s important to make new variations of condiments, dips, and spreads. Over the years, I have noticed specialty mustards, packaged beautifully and available for purchase at foodie stores. The price is usually staggering and the ingredients have words I can’t pronounce.

Dabbling in homemade mustard making has the benefits of controlling sodium levels, avoiding additives, getting a healthy dose of spice (I like my heat), and the surprising ease of doing it yourself.
