    Will Kanchhi share her recipe for watercress momos? That would make a great cookbook entry with these pictures.

    A few days ago Red Flower and I made the Chinese version of momos, (jiaozi) using young wild fennel and ground beef.

    How do the tarwars compare in feel to the giant Chitlnagi Bowie?

    I don't own one but I held one at Aunties. They are pretty nimble, felt much lighter than the Bowie and probably are.

    The Tarwar is a true two-handed sword, about 29" OAL, ranging (in my experience) from 38-59 oz. The two-handed grip allows for reasonable handling, but it's more a beserker-type blade rather than something to duel with. The 59 oz version is too heavy, but I think most of them weigh in the mid 40's.

    The GCB is a really big knife, 24-25" OAL, ranging (in my experience) from 42-55 oz. The handle is designed for a one-handed grip, or maybe one-and-a-half hands. Not enough handle for that much weight, unless you are unusually strong.

    In my opinion the Tarwar is a fearsome fighting blade, whereas the GCB is an impressive work of art.

    I am with you. I've said it before and I'll probably say it again, my Tarwar is probably the most alive blade that I have. It guides itself. It has a mind of its own. When I practice with it I feel like I learn new things. It is the only HI blade I have that I have named. That being said, I love all my others too.
