  3. perfect – I was looking through my cupboard this weekend to decide how to get rid of ingredients – the problem that comes with a love of cooking is cupboards full of ingredients for Indian foods, italian foods, ethiopian, caribbean, iranian, middle eastern and eastern foods – this means that I have szechuan pepper, next to turmeric, and nitter kibeh next to besan flour, there are capers and dried tomatoes, next to tonka beans and vanilla beans, mirin and cocoa powder, dark soy sauce and rice noodles – the variety is amazing however, I also run out of space, so today I decided to start going through the cupboards and using up the bounty and so Iyou have just given me a great idea for besan flour :)!! thank you
