I've been rather occupied of late with various projects, distractions and interests, including a rekindled passion for my classical guitar. Battered fingertips and cramping left hand are my punishment for shamefully neglecting this beautiful instrument for the past two years. As there are only so many hours in a day at one's disposal, and sleep is one of the activities I enjoy as well, this means I have less time to devote to other passions, like cooking, cookbooks and food blog browsing.
Of course, the art of cooking and good nourishment is never far from my mind, and when the hand and finger battering and cramping had subsided enough to hold a knife, back to the kitchen I went to whip up a batch of these tender shallow fried Turkish-style sweet potato and dried apricot rolls. Slightly sweet, but also a little tart, with a generous hint of fresh herbs, I served these alongside a mixed green salad splashed with a lemon mint dressing for a delightfully satisfying light meal.
