Assam is a place where you cannot avoid fish. It is as frequently eaten as perhaps idlis in Chennai, kebabs in Lucknow or vada pavs in Maharastra. We pride ourselves on having fertile waters for the fishes and a keen eye while picking out the best produce. I put my Assamese mind to good use this time I was home. We were with a nice big aari maas (giant river catfish). This fish had no major bone except for the spine, so you fillet it nice and proper.
Continuing on the healthy foods promise from last week, here’s another recipe that is low in fat and indulges all your sweet cravings just in time for a quick after-lunch treat. Cut the frozen bananas into small pieces, preferably an inch long. Transfer to the blender along with the milk. Blitz till smooth and creamy. If required, add a little more milk to loosen the mix. Once smooth, add the peanut butter and the cinnamon powder to the blender and blitz once more to combine everything.
Like so many great dishes I make, this one was born out of sheer curiosity. I just had to make a cake with orange after I had a piece of a similar one in Bengaluru a while back. Unfortunately, I had never cooked with an orange batter before and decided to seek inspiration online. Most of the recipes either had orange pulp or the juice. Fittingly enough, it was a Scottish-Italian cook in Los Angeles who had the daring recipe of using an entire orange instead.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
