You put rub on THAT?

Okay, here's a dumb question:[p]What's the most unusual FOOD item that you've spiced up with rub - and actually liked?[p]I picked up an assortment of Dizzy Pig rubs last Saturday at the Peoria Eggfest after hearing their praises on the forum. Since I was stuffed from the eggfest, we just had a light supper on Saturday night.[p]Sunday morning I was eating a ham and cheese omelet while reading the labels on the rub. Before I knew it, I was testing out the "Shakin' the Tree" on the omelet. It was good![p]Anybody else have one of these enlightening moments?

    The Raging River is my favortie on corn. What about you?[p]Mike

  • thirdeyethirdeye Posts: 7,428
    Car Wash Mike,[p]For a base to accent the sweetness of the corn, yes. I like a dash of Swamp Venom or Tony C for a back flavor.[p]~thirdeye~

  • Lab Rat,[p]I put a little Dizzy Dust in when I'm preparing eggs to scramble. [p]Also on hash browns. [p]Also, use Dizzy Pig products when preparing fish for a fish fry (got a sample of Jamaican Firewalk, and imagine that'll go good on fried fish - gonna try that next time).

    I had the same question and actually had to look it up! :-)
    This is what I found:[p]The papadum (for alternative names see box) is a thin South Asian wafer, sometimes described as a cracker or flatbread, typically made from lentil, chickpea, black gram or rice flour.In Dakshina Kannada district, jackfruit and sabudana are also used as ingredients in making of Happala.
    Salt and peanut oil are added to make a dough, which can be flavored with seasonings such as, for example, chili, cumin, garlic or black pepper.
    The dough is shaped into a tortilla-like round and can be cooked by deep-frying, roasting over an open flame, toasting, or microwaving, depending on the desired texture.
    Papadums are typically served as an accompaniment to a meal, an appetizer or a snack and eaten topped with chutney or other dips.
    Papadums are made in different sizes. The smaller ones can be eaten like a snack chip and the larger ones can be used to make wraps. [p]Simply put ... they're some kind of tortilla/pancake thingie. :-)[p]Yikes!

    <p />darnoc,[p]If you do make them, they absolutely have to be rolled out super-wafer thin.
    It's not one to dissuade anyone from trying a new recipe, but I think you'd be better off trying to find them locally or online and give them a try before going through all of the work of making them. They're salty, spicy and taste unlike anything else.
    We love them and always have a few packs around. The cumin and cracked pepper are our favorites. We cook a lot of Indian food and we actually served a bunch of them with this weekend's homemade tandoori chicken. Like Naked sez, nuke for about 30 seconds until golden, puffy and crispy. [p]john
