My 2nd Indian meal to prepare in my lifetime. Can you believe this? I have only made a coconut curry once and that was before I was married.
Can you believe that I actually was craving this dish and I had never had it???? What does it mean? Can I tell you I was hungry 3 hours later after eating this dish and hungrier even still in the morning?
Friday is a day for questions. Can you tell?
I searched many recipes and I finally got to the one that really stuck out to me. For one thing, Indian cuisine has always intimidated me even though I like trying new foods and cuisines. I keep a lot of spices but I realized yesterday I do not even have Garam Masala or mustard seeds in my spice cabinet. I have cardamon, star anise, curry, tumeric, cumin, and coriander.
When I started making this meal last night, I was real afraid that once the spices started wafting through the house that I would lose my appetite. It has happened before and even since I gotten pregnant. You read all these articles that say that pregnant women should eat bland foods, but I am SO not a bland food person even if I am pregnant.
I guess my body needed some the of the spices because this dish was SO DELICIOUS! My mother loved it and Ryan ate the whole portion I gave him, even though Indian food is not his favorite. Well, let me rephrase that, cauliflower is not his favorite.
The only thing I have to say is that I really needed protein last night because around midnight I was STARVING and I had to go get a tablespoon of almond butter before going to bed. Well, it took me 15 minutes to go to sleep but the meal was wonderful and quick to prepare and fun to make.
Your home will smell heavenly after you finish making this meal. Trust me..make this meal this weekend!
Add the pre-sauteed potatoes to the pan and toss well along with all the cooked ingredient mix to combine well. Cover and cook at low to medium till the potatoes are about half cooked.
I served mine with brown rice and loved it!
