i usually just use a sponge for washing but i guess a wash mitt would probably be better, i'm glad i'm doing it all in the right order though eg. start with the wheels with wheel cleaner and a brush and then rinse off the whole car and then start washing with car shampoo from the top down, i don't understand the 2 bucket method though. also i thought washing up liquid was a big no no

Sponges trap the dirt and also have a slightly gritty texture itself. It's basically an extremely fine sandpaper...not good for the paint in the long run.

The 2 bucket system is basically 1 for soaping up the wash mitt and 1 for rinsing off the dirt from the mitt. wash panel -> rinse -> resoap -> repeat. It reduces the amount of dirt caught in the mitt and keeps the mitt is clean throughout the wash.

ah k that makes sense

can you also have shampoo in the second bucket or does that defeat the purpose? i guess warm water would be better for rinsing as well

thatd be a waste of soap but also you might get confused as to which is which. Warm water is fine but not hot.

Haha no probs. I guess something simple that I could source the ingredients for here (smallish town, U.K.).

Maybe like a spice mix or rub that I could add to meat or veg? Or a stew type thing perhaps? Rice stuff maybe?

How about you?

- Recipes outside of the American/Mexican realm.

I know a fair amount about chinese/taiwanese cooking.

Most things are going to require the same basic ingredients which you should be able to find at just about any asian-pacific market:

Noodles/Rice (duh)
Soy sauce
Sesame oil
Black sesame oil
Fish sauce
Oyster sauce
Kecup Manis (soy molasses basically)
shaoxing rice wine (equivalent of cooking sherry)
Chili oil
Chili paste


All the other ingredients will generally be the same as a lot of western dishes--pork, chicken, green onion, (thai) basil, cilantro, ginger etc.


Try looking up recipes for San Bei Ji or Mapo Doufu to get started. You can buy pre-made mapo sauce in a lot of grocery stores, but it's best if you make it from scratch so you can really get the lip numbing effect that it's known for.

How about chana masala or some other veg type dish?

Quote by ErikLensherr

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
#36
zgr0826 ooh one of my favourites actually! There's two main types, I like the second more.

Chana just means chickpea, so really there's no one difinitive "chana masala" as it's a bit like saying "spicy rice" or whatever. Anyway, the main ones are:

350g Chickpeas
1-2 White onion
As many Tomatoes as you like. More = more sauce, less = thicker
Garlic
Fresh Ginger
3/4 tsp Turmeric
Chilli to taste
Coriander/cilantro leaves
1tbsp Ground cumin
1 tbsp Ground coriander
1 tsp Ground ginger
1/2 tbsp ground fennel seeds
1 tsp fragrant garam masala (keep a few different garam masalas handy, like an earthy one, fragrant one, fresh one etc)
White vinegar
Sugar

Heat a pan, toast your spices and grind them if you're doing that (don't worry if you're not), add coconut oil and heat it till it's dang hot, then cool again.

If using veg oil, just medium-low heat. Add thinly sliced onions and let them soften fully. Expect this to take an annoying amount of time. You want them like how you'd have on hot dogs!

Add a grated inch of ginger and two-three cloves of grated garlic. Paste these instead of grating if you prefer.

Cook the garlic and ginger and onion mix for a further two mins or so, stirring so it doesn't catch. Add all spices except turmeric.

Add chickpeas

Stir for a minute or so, letting it get a little clumpy and ugly and even smoke a little. Add your chopped tomatoes and a little water if you want it. Not too much though.

Let this simmer for as long as you like. A shorter simmer will make a fresher tasting light curry, a longer simmer (which will require more tomatoes and some water) will make the flavours deeper and the whole thing will be more like a stew. This longer way is more traditional.
At the very end, season with salt, sugar and vinegar to taste. I'd usually do about a tsp vinegar and half a tsp sugar.

Serve with fresh chopped coriander leaves, splodge of yoghurt is nice too. If you're feeling fancy, fresh chopped chillies, burnt cooled onions and toasted brown mustard seeds would be traditional

(I secretly don't like this dish much)

Second is simple, more like a salad:
Chickpeas
Half a red onion
coriander leaves
Chopped fresh tomatoes
Chaat masala

Just mix this together. Have with yoghurt, potatoes, breads, kinda anything cold. Serve cold btw.

You can find good chaat masalas in shops or recipes online, I can post mine if wanted

(Soz abt lng pst idk hw 2 dm)

For photography, the best thing you can do is buy an old film camera with an in-built light meter, or buy a separate light meter. You'll learn a lot from having to adjust your own settings and the hesitation/planning that comes into lining up a film shot helps you learn about framing.
