This is coming quite a few days late, but I’ll get into the rhythm of things. Anyway: India Week! Super excited for this week because this is a food culture that is still coming into its own in America, much as Mexican food was a decade or so ago.
I think that when I was a kid, Indian food was a strange idea that no one executed well, and now that its finally becoming more commonplace I’m really trying to learn as much of it as I can. Why?
Even if you don’t like Indian food, there is a lot to be learn about how to use spices from their cuisine. Remember, spices have no calories; so for those trying to lose weight this is a great way to pack in more flavor. However, this site isn’t on weight loss, so let’s start cooking!
Here’s what’s on the agenda for the week:
These only take about 30 minutes to make and are an extremely healthy snack that even kids like.
A great activity for kids.
Tomato Mango Chicken
I know this sounds a little odd, but it’s delicious!
Saffron rice and curry soup
Simple and light sides or a refreshing meal.
Kheer and Spiced Crispy Treats (Rice desserts)
Some of my favorites and they’re both easy!
So stick around, find us on Facebook or Twitter, and enjoy!
