I just moved to London, and since my vegan staples of certain favorite Japanese & Mexican dishes aren't really available here, I need other ideas.
I'm new to Indian (Asian) spices and modes of preparation, so I would need a very basic intro-- maybe with pictures so I could identify spices-- yeah, I really need a newbie guide! Even websites would help.
Also, has anyone used the "Vegetarian Ghee" that comes in a tub and is sold as "shelf stable"-- is it vegan? Does it need refrigeration after opening, or is it like shortening? Is it already "clarified"?
Thanks for any help in this matter!
