    I love cooking, prepare almost all my own food from scratch and will cook up a several course meal for anyone who will let me. It's a lot of Middle Eastern, Indian and Thai food (love the spices), but also do a lot of Italian, English and Spanish food.

    I've been getting into baking although my bread baking attempts have been far from ideal.

    Curries are very easy when you have a basic knowledge tbh.

    The staple spices are turmeric, garam masala, chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder.

    The base is usually onion, garlic and ginger fried, you can add cardamoms (green and black), cloves, cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, chillies and cumin seeds. Tomatoes are added (fresh, tinned or pureed).

    Other things can be added for flavour or taste e.g. almond flakes, plain yoghurt, fresh coriander, peppers and other stuff I can't remember at the moment.

    I was going to give an explanation but you've already done it. Though I'd say that cloves and cinnamon sticks and bay leaves are optional.
    Garam masala is often quite chilli so would recommend paprika instead.

    I love cooking. I love baking. I just love food.

    But then again, I'm doing Professional Bakery at college as a side thing with my A-levels

    I like to cook indeed. I makes fun to prepare and to eat food after that. Be it alone or with friends.

    I can cook, but rarely bother. Mostly pasta, or magic pizza that just arrives at my door....

    That is better than nothing. The next step would be making french toast by frying toasts in a pan.

    I like to cook. I tend to cook things from scratch too, so (generally) no packet sauces and mixes. With the exception of curry because I just haven't gotten round to going to the asian supermarket yet to buy the curry staples. I will do soon though. It means I know exactly what is going into my food and it also tends to taste much nice.


    (Note, I obviously buy some sauces such as soy, worcester etc, by sauces I mean things like bolognese sauce from a jar or chilli con carne sauce)
