To start off our most recent collaBREWation meal (you remember, that obscenely delicious and fiery lamb curry), we started out with a heaping platter of these crispy cauliflower fritters, aka pakora.
We served up these wonderfully spiced, fried pakora with tangy raita – an easy as cake Indian condiment. I was surprised at how much I LOVED this yogurty goodness. The cooling cucumber, subtle spices and onion, plus tangy yogurt work wonders together.
Goodbye winter. Goodbye cold, grey sadness, welcome Aprihop. Aka SPRING. Dogfish Head nails this delicious spring seasonal every year. Mmmm Aprihop. My absolute favorite springtime beer. AND it pairs crazy well with the couscous I’m about to tell you about. As you might have guessed, Aprihop has apricots, and lots of hop action: It is both continuously hopped as its brewed, then dry hopped as it ferments. It’s like a Magic Hat #9 mixed with a delicious, fruit forward, but very hoppy IPA. (You might not know that Magic Hat #9 has apricot extract in it, but then again you probably do, ’cause you’re awesome like that). Aprihop is available March-May, so go out and find some!
