Last night I dreamt I went back to … well, no actually I did not -what I did do was to make pumpkin soup for the first time ever. It was finished off with melted stilton and apricots, giving nice tastes and textures in the eating. I could sense such a soup base working with mild/medium Indian spices. As it was, this one had coriander seeds and was meant to have ground cumin in it, though I couldn’t find any in my store cupboard to grind up, so I put something else in instead, but I can’t tell you what, as it was written in ?Turkish. My daughter probably used up all my cumin seeds during one of her cumin and coriander flavouring phases;In the circumstances I’m surprised I had any coriander seeds left to use, but hey, I did.
