Simple suppers

Clean and parboil sheep's brains.
Chop them up.
Chop up teaspoonful parsley.
Make a little good white sauce and add in cream (top of milk).
Reheat brains in sauce and parsley and add one half teaspoonful of beef extract.
Fill ramequin dishes, covered with buttered crumbs 
and bake in oven until crumbs are brown.

  1. Free ranging cattle and goats are the norm for life in India.
    I find the simplest way to shoo a goat from my compound is to whisper "Ramadan" in its ear.
