a random bite of panelle

panelle and mango chutney

my mother, whose food i love, made a recipe of lidia bastianich's, whose food i love. which resulted in love on a plate. panelle, i learned from my mother, who learned from lidia's pbs show, is a very simple chick pea fritter. mango chutney, my father learned while tasting the recipie my mother learned from lidia, goes very well with panelle. pass it on.

oh, and i learned that lidia's recipe for panelle was featured in bon appetit, which my mother adapted to include some fresh herbs. good idea, mom.
