That’s what you need for the filling

Juice of 2 lemons

Approx.. 100g sugar (depending on how sour your apples are)

1,75kg peeled and thinly sliced apples

100g raisin

100g chopped walnuts

Cinnamon to taste

200g butter roasted breadcrumbs

unsalted butter for brushing on the dough

Icing sugar for garnishing

Mix apples, sugar, raisins, walnuts, and cinnamon make sure you do not break the apple slices.

How to make the Strudel

fill-and-roll

Use flour on your working surface. Roll half the dough to a about 10cm broad and 20cm long. Then pull and stretch the dough by hand. The dough needs to be so thin that you can read a newspaper through it.

Cut off the slightly thicker edges of the dough. Brush the dough with butter, then sprinkle half of the roasted breadcrumbs and half of the apple filling across the length of the dough (about 1/3 of the width). Wrap on the sides and roll the dough to a Strudel.

Repeat with the other half of the ingredients.

brush-and-bake

Put the strudel on a baking tin, brush some more butter on top and bake at 180C for 60 minutes.

Austria Is Trending

my friend Bubbly Chatterji, a fabulous (fashion) blogger went to Delhi’s WIFW to understand who sets the trends …

Pero by Aneeth Arora WIFW AW 2014

‘You’re in next season’ I told my friend. ‘Whaaattt?’ Was my confused friend’s reply as she’s never in or on trend or bothered.

My friend is an Austrian chef living in Delhi.  We were out looking for check fabric a couple of weeks ago for her company branding so I was pleasantly surprised to see checks were in two shows at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week AW14.  And that too in both the prints we selected, blue checks and red checks.

Ernas @ Foodcloud Pop up

The Foodcloud.in Pop-up Shop was superlicious. On display here in the pic are Erna’s Hummus, HerbButter and Rucola Tasty Spreads.

The motto seemed: shop till you drop for fashion from JJ Valaya, Shantanu & Nikhil, Tarun Tahiliani, etc. then pamper yourself and your loved ones with goodies from the foodcloud.in store.

Sounds like a perfect Saturday!

P.S.: The Foodcloud.in Pop-up Shop was part of the Stock Market at the Lalit Hotel, Barakhamba Road on March 8, 2014.

Hasenjagd – The Quality o Mercy

Yesterday, I watched The Quality of Mercy (OT: Hasenjagd), by Andreas Gruber, 1994. We saw the film for the first time in 1994 at school, shortly after its release. 

The Quality of Mercy is one of those films that remained in my mind. It narrates the string of events during World War 2 that happened in the neighborhood I grew up in. I don’t want to bore you with the details of the film (in case you are interested, here is a link to the film’s Wikipedia article in English )

We had of course also seen Schindler’s List the film that came out in 1993. It is commendable what Mr. Schindler did. Yes, Mr. Schindler is a hero, because he saved so many lives and yes, he was a big man.

The Quality of Mercy does not have a hero who saves the lives of hundreds, or for that matter even five. The film draws attention to those who are not in positions of power, but still spark with resistance at the risk of their own lives.

In one scene a woman keeps boiled potatoes outside her front door, just in case someone passes by who is hungry. Others offer the fugitives their own clothes in the abject icy-cold winter. During that time, each one of those seemingly small gestures used to be high-stake-risk-taking behavior.

When we think of our own lives, how many times have we seen injustice and told ourselves: but that is none of my business? Or said in resignation: What can I do?

Yes, moral courage is something we all should have, but after all, how many of us bother?
