Welcome to the BM Mega Marathon that will be on for the whole month of September, featuring a Buffet On Table. True to the name, we have different themes lined up for each week.
Week 1 will feature Combo Dishes. I know at the first shot, Combo Dishes might sound confusing, however, it's actually quite simple. When it comes to Indian Dishes, the choices are many as we seem to be eating that way. When we research further into global cuisine, we see that it's the same everywhere too.
For example, can one eat just the fries without the sauce! Chinese Wontons will taste out of the world when paired with Garlic Sauce. The list can be endless. Not just savory dishes, there are pairing done in Desserts too, like Vanilla Ice Cream with Brownie.
So when we decided to have Combo Dishes, it meant we take up International dishes. Most felt it was a tough nut to crack. Though I know my friends would have cracked it out quite easily.
Somehow I have always been very fond of this theme. Even though I may have already made such combo dishes already, I was eager to search for more such dishes. Given the situation at hand, I wanted simple ones. Trust me, I have landed with very simple ones.
The rules of this theme are, we should pick up a pair that's normally served together in any country and blog on it for the first week.
One of the dishes can be already shared, however, all the dishes should be featured in the same picture.
Starting my first one of the combo dishes, I selected one from Australia, which came across as a rage from all those who traveled there. It's the famous Potato Wedges with Sour Cream and Sweet Chilli Sauce.
I never expected such a humble combination to be so highly regarded by the tourists and locals as such.
This combination is supposed to be Australian's culinary secrets that the world is unaware of! And needless to say, as predicted, it was love at first bite to us at home too.
I was surprised that for all the recipes that I have done so far, I am yet to share a simple Potato Wedge recipe. Well, there are French Fries and the Fry Sauce that seem to be the American way of serving a sauce with french fries, but not a Potato Wedges.
