South Indian-Style Mac and Cheese

My late friend and colleague John Pierce codified his mother-in-law’s macaroni and cheese recipe and it’s online at I made it for supper tonight, and it’s as good as John described it. Just the thing for a cold, wet winter’s night.

The big revelation for me: macaroni and cheese is really macaroni and milk and cheese. Leave out the milk and you’re just making cheesy pasta.
