CHRISTMAS PUDDING ON STIR UP SUNDAY
Christmas Puddings were traditionally always made on Stir-up Sunday which is the last Sunday before Advent begins. In the olden days it was the day when traditionally families gather together to prepare the Christmas pudding or mix the fruit for the Christmas Cakes.
The day does not actually get its name from ‘stirring the pudding’: It gets its name from the Book of Common Prayer. The Collect of the Day for the last Sunday before Advent starts, “Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people”. However since Victorian times it has become associated with the rather lovely family custom of preparing for Christmas together by making the Christmas pudding, an essential part of most Christmas dinners.
The Christmas Pudding is traditionally made with 13 ingredients representing Jesus Christ and his 12 Disciples. The Christmas pudding is stirred from East to West in honor of the 3 wise men who came from the east to visit the Savior child
Every member of the family gives the pudding a stir and makes a wish. A coin, a ring or a thimble are sometime added to the pudding mixture. The coin and thimble supposedly brings luck and wealth to the person who gets it in his / her piece of the pudding on Christmas day, and the finger ring would foretell a wedding to the person who gets it.
Likewise, there is a Cake mixing or stirring Day as well. It is nothing but the day on which families gather together around the dining table, to chop and mix the fruit and nuts with lots of wine and liquor for the traditional Christmas cake. This practice actually started in the 17th Century in Europe, marking the arrival of the harvest season, during which lots of fresh fruits and nuts were harvested and used in the making of traditional Christmas cake.
However, the age-old tradition of using fresh fruits has now been replaced with lots of dry fruits, such as raisins, black currants, etc., nuts, and spices are combined together to form a mixture, which is then soaked in alcoholic blends for a few weeks. This is to let the mixture soak in all the alcohol and liquor. The soaked fruit is then added to the cake batter and baked into delicious Cakes.
This tradition of Fruit Mixing or Stirring, used to be an intimate family affair in the olden days. Now a days, Cake Mixing or Mixing of the Fruit has become a gala social event with the who’s who being invited to Big Hotels to take part in the ceremony as a happy get together to welcome the festive season and bring in the festive spirit that is so synonymous with Christmas.
So get your ingredients ready and everyone join in to stir up the Christmas Pudding .

ANGLO-INDIAN CHICKEN PISH-PASH RICE OR SMASHED RICE
Pish-Pash is a watery over-cooked Rice and Meat Dish that was very popular in Anglo-Indian homes in the olden days. The word ‘PASH’ is of Old English origin, meaning to ‘smash’ or ‘mash’ in relation to mashed meat. The term ‘Pish Pash’ dates back to 18th Century Anglo-India and was used as "baby talk" with children at meal times.
Pish-Pash is a colloquial Anglo-Indian Name for rice that has been over-cooked or cooked really soft. We say the rice is pish-pashy. Pish-Pash is a simple rice dish cooked together with chicken or meat cut up into pieces in extra water or stock till the rice is overcooked and soft. Sometimes a little Dal or lentils are added for a variation in taste. A chicken or beef Soup cube could also be added while cooking to give the dish a better flavour. This is a delightfully mild savoury dish that could be easily digested and is often given to invalids or children. While it is the simplest of all Anglo-Indian dishes to prepare, it’s the greatest of all ‘COMFORT FOODS’

A Hot Cross Bun is a spiced sweet bun made with currants or raisins, marked with a cross on the top, and traditionally eaten on Good Friday around the world. . The buns mark the end of Lent and different parts of the hot cross bun have a certain meaning, including the cross representing the crucifixion of Jesus, and the spices inside signifying the spices used to embalm him at his burial.
The traditional method for making the cross on top of the bun is to use shortcrust pastry ;however, more recently recipes have recommended a paste consisting of flour and water.

Easy Recipe for Hot cross buns
3/4 cup warm water
3 tbsps butter, softened
1 tbsp powdered milk
1/4 cup castor sugar
Pinch of salt
1 egg
1 egg white
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp active dry yeast
3/4 cup dried currants
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder

For glaze:-
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons water

For cross :-
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons milk

Put warm water, butter, milk powder, sugar, salt, egg, egg white, flour, currants, cinnamon, nutmeg and yeast in food processor and form into a dough or knead by hand. Leave aside till double in bulk.
Punch down on floured surface, cover, and let rest 10 minutes.
Shape into 12 large or 14-15 smaller balls and place in a greased 9 x 12 inch pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place till double, about 35-40 minutes.
Mix egg yolk and 2 tablespoons water. Brush on buns.
Bake at 190°C for 20 minutes. Remove from pan immediately and cool on wire rack.

To make crosses: mix together confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and milk. Brush a cross on each cooled bun.

For shortcrust crosses :-
combine 170g plain flour with 125g softened butter and 1 tbsp of icing sugar. Bind to a paste with a small amount of cold water, and chill before rolling.Cut strips from the rolled out sweet pastry, and stick crosses to the surface of the bun with a little milk. Do this after the buns have risen, before you glaze them with the egg wash

DING-DING – ANGLO-INDIAN PRESERVED MEAT -
Food drying is the oldest method of preserving food for use at a later date. Everyone will agree that Summer is the right time to do this, when Pickles and preserves are made to last the whole year. Anglo-Indian folks in the olden days made use of the heat of the summer sun to make Ding-Ding - our very own Anglo-Indian Sun dried preserved meat. The Meat, either beef or mutton was cut into very thin slices, washed and then marinated in a mixture of chillie powder, turmeric powder, salt, pepper and vinegar for a few hours. The marinated meat was then strung on a string and hung on the verandah or back porch to dry in the summer heat. Sometimes the meat was placed on flat plates and left to dry in the sun. Of course, someone had to be on guard to shoo away the crows that were brave enough to try to steal a piece of the drying meat. It would take a couple of days to dry completely to a crisp. The dried meat was then carefully stored away in airtight tins to be used at a later date. When required, the dried meat would be shallow fried in hot oil till brown and crisp. It made a wonderful side dish with Rice and Pepper Water or Rice and Dol (Dhal) Curry.
Anglo-Indian men in the olden days were fond of hunting, especially those living in the Tea Gardens, Mining Colonies, Railway Colonies etc . A group of them would venture into the woods and farms in search of game. They would invariably return with wild Boar, pheasants, wild ducks etc. The spoils would be shared with neighbors and friends and the remaining meat was always preserved in this way by drying it after marinating it with vinegar.
How this dried meat dish actually got its name Ding-Ding is unknown. Presumably, As the wind blew, the dangling dried meat dashed against each other with a ding sound. Hence the name Ding Ding .
Now the same dried and preserved meat could be dried quicker in an oven or in a microwave without hanging the pieces out to dry in the sun. Alternatively, one could make Ding Ding Fry with fresh meat, chicken, duck etc, by just marinating and frying them to a crisp.
This recipe and lots of other old Anglo-Indian Recipes are featured in my Recipe Book ANGLO-INDIAN CUISINE – A LEGACY OF FLAVOURS FROM THE PAST.

Recipe for DING DING
Ingredients
1 kg beef from the shank end of the leg (cut into very thin slices)
3 or 4 teaspoons pepper powder
2 teaspoons chillie powder
3 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
½ cup vinegar
Wash the meat and marinate with the pepper powder, salt, chillie powder, vinegar and turmeric powder for 2 or 3 hours. String the pieces of meat on a string and hang to dry. (Alternately the marinated meat could be placed on a flat plate and dried in the oven or kept in the sunlight to dry). The pieces should be dried thoroughly.
Store in an airtight container and use whenever required at a later date.
To use at a later date, soak the dried meat pieces in cold water for a couple of hours. Beat each piece with a rolling pin and then shallow fry with a little oil. This goes well with rice and pepper water or Dol (Dal) and Rice.
