January – India

January – India

One of my most favorite cuisines, but also one of the most mysterious to me. I really enjoyed jumping in with both feet. I learned so much about the spices, the blending of flavors and of course, all of the taste testing! I shocked myself at the end of the month when I reflected back and realized I cooked 22 new recipes! I couldn’t have done it without the help from our local Indian grocer, Vishnu. The joyful collaboration with my #1 favorite, foodie friend and her mom. And just coincidentally some well timed podcasts that referenced Indian cooking, namely “Home Cooking” http://homecooking.show with Samin Nosrat and Hrishikesh Hirway.

And without further ado and in no particular order, what I cooked in January!

The one helpful hint I could give anyone beginning to cook Indian food is to have all the ingredients out and ready to go! This can be a fast paced cooking adventure and things happen very quickly!
