I love Indian food. In fact, it might be my favorite ethnic cuisine. I think it is strange that it isn’t more mainstream like chinese. I would love an Indian restaurant handing out those samples at the mall food court. I love that there are so many Indian dishes that are vegetarian. I also love lentils which the are very common in Indian cooking. I find it hard to cook Indian food though. There is always some spice element that is missing when I try and do it myself.
That certainly doesn’t stop me from trying though and I am definitely improving. Hubby said this was the best I had made so far. The kids weren’t so impressed. They would prefer macaroni and cheese or “peaner” and honey. Except for G Man. He had it like a champ and even ate some of the leftovers for lunch the next day. Hubby was actually upset that there weren’t any leftovers. This from a man who usually avoids leftovers at all costs.
