Do you know what a Rissole is? Have you tasted one?

Found 13th Jan 2009
Best is rissole, chips and gravy, but when I left Wales I walked into a chip shop and asked for it, and guess what, spent 5 mins explaining what it is. Can't buy it anywhere and hardly anyone knows about them. Every chip shop in South Wales has them. London......no chance.

"Rissoles can be found in chip shops in south Wales and north-east England. Rissole and chips is a common choice of meal. These rissole are meat (typically corned beef) mashed up with potato, herbs and sometimes onion. They are about the same size and shape as a scotch egg. They are coated in breadcrumbs or less frequently battered and deep fried."

I have never ever ever in my life seen a chinese takeaway or restaraunt that does poppadoms, prawn crackers yeah, poppadoms no.

should this not be the case then thanks for educating me, however wiki says indian: en.wikipedia.org/wik…dum
Poppadoms? with a chinese????

I'm used to prawn crackers with mine.

Btw on the subject of kebab's, we got a tiny van just down the Dedworth Road from me that sells lovely kebabs.

A small-mix kebab(chicken/lamb) is quite simply: superb. I have chilli n mayo and lashings of fresh salad with mine - extra raw onion.

I must be their biggest customer(serious)
One entire city has this, Swansea, poppadoms in every Chinese takeaway, and prawn crackers too.
