So, I tried my hand at Indian food last night. ‘Twas my first time attempting a cuisine that I find both delicious and daunting, and I have to say, it didn’t come out half bad. Of course, I was coached through the process by some detailed instructions from eatliverun, whose vegan Channa Masala recipe somehow made cooking Indian food seem like a doable feat.
Fighting my constant yet catastrophic urge to make like Emeril in the kitchen and start throwing things around and making my own creation, I carefully followed instructions on this one.
And a few magical moments and two cans of chickpeas later, I had this….
Now, this experiment came out much better than the massive Kale Chip fail of last week, in which I turned this beautiful leafy mound…
Into an only semi-edible sorry mess of crunchy over-salted leaves on a baking sheet. Let it be known, however, that Diana and I ate every.single.lousy.chip. Because you can eat anything (even messed up hunks of kale) coated in olive oil and salt.
And so, my latest adventures into new, uncharted culinary territory. I probably won’t be opening up an Indian fusion restaurant anytime soon, but I’ll definitely be trying more dishes. Oh, and I’m never buying kale again.
