My advice will be to replace your picture by a nice recipe picture. A person picture in place of food picture on front page looks out of place.

How do they keep the mustard seeds from burning?  Every time I try to do it, they end up scorched.  I've tried both yellow and black mustard seeds, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.  It must be Indian magic.

Hi Syndetic well heat oil/ghee until you see flames.Put in mustard seeds just once it starts spluttering you can turn of the flame. n move the container a little to & fro..this is probably the best explanation i could give though you could watch an Indian fren do it so that you get an idea..

Just 2 things to keep in mind: Dont let the oil get too too hot. Once the mustards sputter, its done.Turn the flame low or off.
