Spices and Seasons – Caraway Seeds and Delicata Pancakes
Posted By Rinku Bhattacharya On December 10, 2012 @ 10:39 am In Features,Spices and Seasons | No Comments
 I have so many ideas combined into this post, that chances are you will find me less than coherent. I get this way, when I am excited, tired and especially when I am excited about a new seasonal creation.
My kids and I love Hanukkah, let me explain, it is not so much about the holiday as it is about the latkes. Of course there are the classic potato variety, then I have my famous harvest latkes that I make with rutabaga and now fresh off the frying pan on this first day of the holiday, I have my newly created Delicata squash pancakes. The squash, I will let you know is from our garden, there are still a few small things here and there that are sustaining us, the squash that stays indoors through a nice chunk of the season and then we have carrots and some beets.
So back to carraway seeds, these seeds are also called Black cumin, because of its darker color, the spice is a cross between fennel seeds and cumin in its taste. It is used a lot in middle-eastern cooking and is believed to be a native of the region. It’s versatile taste makes it used in breads, desserts and of course savory dishes.
the spices I will tell you that these are a great way to get your children to eat their veggies, while my kids are pretty good in that department, it is with veggie pancakes that I get a smile on their face and of course, I have managed to get several other children to eat their veggies.
More that the joy of creating a recipe, it really is about creating a recipe that is not too bad for the kids and they love it, I am all you parent cooks will share my enthusiasm.
I am also getting ready for vacation, I shall be travelling to India and Finland (this is an odd one, so I shall see if I can find some food finds there) for a couple of weeks. I promise to come back energized with food ideas, spices and just a general sense of well being.
So on to the recipe.
