India Week!

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:

Roasted Chickpeas

These only take about 30 minutes to make and are an extremely healthy snack that even kids like.

Treasure Rice

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!
