Indian Cooking Lesson, Giveaway: YOU Could WIN Some Of The Ingredients…

I’ve come to the end of my Step-by-Step recipe series from my Indian cooking class lessons…

I realise fully that not everyone who reads this blog has easy access to an Indian Specialist shop in order to obtain some of the  recipe ingredients.

Since I hope that some of these step-by-step tutorial posts might hopefully entice you to try the recipes yourself, I am offering you the chance to win some of these hard(er) to find ingredients.

All you have to do is to make a comment on any one of the “Step-by-Step Indian Cooking Lesson” posts.

Having sent Himself out to the  Indian Specialist shop,  I have a selection of ingredients here ready to post to the winner. Alternatively, should the winner decide that there is a specific recipe they would like to make, (or set of recipes) then I could also send you more of a specific item in place of ones you might not think you will ever need for instance.

Of course, if you can get any of these items easily in your supermarket or local area (maybe the Ground Ginger?) then you could save me the postage in sending that item to you and again, I’d be happy to pop something in extra that you need instead.

Himself goes to the Haagse Markt regularly and the Indian Specialist is just metres away so packing a parcel “made to measure” is no problem.

I’ll include some photographs here to remind you of all the ingredients we have been using …

I’ll get an unbiased and independent adjudicator (a.k.a. Himself, who has no idea who you all are LOL) to pick what he thinks is the winning comment without any influence from me (he’s guaranteed to be impartial because he doesn’t even know he’s been signed up for this task yet !!!) and then one lucky person will be receiving an Indian Ingredient goodie box in the post.

You have until (until midnight) of July 5th 2013 to comment on as many of the posts as you wish,  …to write something that tells Himself why you’d like to win, something about the recipe, possibly a link  with photos if you have made the recipe, why one or more is your favourite, something you loved learning during the series… or…?  Stand out from the crowd… get creative and be in with a chance!

  2. Wait — does cleverness count? Because my previous comment on a recipe post was not especially clever! (Although I believe my spelling & grammar were spot on. 🙂 )

    • More than one comments is allowed Luddy!
      Never mind about the grammatical correctness, let’s hear about what you think about the recipes, which one you will make / have made, or something interesting you’ve learned about the recipe or ingredients… go for it 🙂

  3. I can get pretty much all of that already (and have already in some cases!) – the only one I need to look for is the mace… So I do not need to participate but I want to say that I’ve really enjoyed the whole Indian cooking series!

    • Carrie,
      You photos of the massive International market had me speechless… what a dream place to shop! (forget shoes or handbags I want to go here instead LOL). If you can’t find mace let me know 🙂
      I’m delighted you enjoyed the cooking series, (but I had help of course from our Indian cooking teacher who’s the REAL expert) 🙂
