comment How long do you have to cook wild morel mushrooms for them to be safe?
Ah, I see. Those are "toppmurklor" over here ("top morels" in translation). :) The link is not working by the way, but I found plenty on google. Anyway, just disregard my answer. It is obviously not the same mushroom.

Yes, they must be. Here is a google image search on the mushroom in question. Does this variety not exist in the US? bit.ly/Ixwffs

comment Can I carve up a suckling pig like you would an adult pig?
"end up with meat you don't want to eat"? Sounds like you are knocking gelatin. Don't do that. It is precisely the gelatin that makes suckling pig so juicy and delicious.

Yes, it would be hard to bake anything using even the most die-hard fan of conventions. :)

comment Ice cream problems
It definitely does not need 20 minutes at that temperature. When your custard reaches the prescribed temperature it is done. However, you should be aware that if you cook it in a bain-marie it will take longer than if you heat it in a saucepan directly on the stove top. But 20 minutes still seems excessive, even for a bain-marie.

comment What is an easy-to-make dessert that goes well with Indian food?
If easy-to-make is your priority I would go for mango lassi. It is simply mango blended with youghurt. You can also add milk to adjust consistency, or add sugar to adjust sweetness.

comment Why add yogurt to curries spoon by spoon instead of all at once?
Everything in your answer makes sense, but will it really make that much of a difference here, where the recipe calls for the curry to "simmer for an hour or more"? Will not the simmering cause the yoghurt to curdle anyway?

comment Can I use green cardamomm pods and ground cardamom interchangeably?
Just a side note: What is commonly referred to as "black cardamom" is actually a different variety of cardamom than the green, with black hairy pods. The black pods are bigger than the green variety and they are usually dried over an open fire. Black cardamom has an earthy, smoky flavour as opposed to the more aromatic green variety and is mostly used whole in curries and such. @user7538: You refer to the pre-ground cardamom as "black cardamom", but it is actually green cardamom, just like Avinash explained in her answer.
