How many of you work on a recipe until you perfect it (for your taste)? This is something my husband has asked me to do for years as sometimes a dish would be really good and the next time not as good and I would not remember what I had done previously. We were looking through some photographs the other day and there were photos of some of the Pakistani dishes I used to cook, but I can't remember what they were so am working from the pictures to identify the ingredients so I can try again. I used to spend ages thinking about a recipe, cooking it, then getting bored and trying out something new. This was mainly when I worked full time and spent hours commuting each day. Now I have more time (less money) and will buy ingredients and play around with the same dish until I have it right to our taste. Writing up recipes here on cookingbites really helps me focus. So in the past few weeks I have been working on humus, falafel and now dukkah and today (hopefully) gluten free pita. I'm picking a theme Pakistani dishes will be next, I think.
