I was introduced to this recipe by my ex-Indian neighbour. We used to share food with each other and I learned how to make a number of Indian dishes from her. I have to say that though I used the same recipe she passed to me, the results were slightly different. I wasn’t able to recreate the same taste and gravy consistency. I even used the same ingredients! Alas, this curry is delicious with rice but more so with noodles (in my opinion). Boil up some somen noodles, ladle on some curry and chicken and enjoy!
Pasta alla vodka is one of our family staples. I also make it pretty often (once a month at least?) because it’s super easy to whip up (think less than 30 minutes) and requires ingredients I usually have in my pantry and garden. The hubs and E both love it and you always feel very satisfied after eating a huge plate of it.
So I am having problems naming this dish/recipe. It’s a recipe for a quick, simple tomato sauce which can be used for a baked (or unbaked) pasta. It’s super flexible – you can choose to add meat or not, and you can add whatever veggies you choose or have available. This is a good dish for people just learning how to cook and/or are on a budget and/or are short of time. (Okay, that was a lot of “and/or”, but you get the drift.)
So the blog now has an Amazon store (SHOP link on top bar). I’ve listed all, if not most of the stuff I talk about on the blog. I’ve also listed other products I’ve used or would have used instead. Hopefully it will make your Amazon shopping experience a lot faster. Stuff I list, but not in the store is not available on Amazon.com but the links are in the respective posts. Let me know if I’ve missed out anything. Happy shopping!
I recently borrowed “The Kitchn” cookbook from the library. Their website has been a regular source of recipes for me and I was excited to comb through their cookbook. There were a number of recipes that stand out and the Wild Mushroom Ragu was one of them.
I thought I’d post a little update on what’s been happening in my life and what I’m planning for this blog.
It’s becoming a tradition that we have lamb for our wedding anniversary each year. Last year we had lamb ribs, this year lamb shanks. However, after realizing that lamb is somewhat affordable (depending on the cut it’s cheaper than beef), we decided we should have lamb more often…once in 2 months maybe?
I love apple pie (and so does the rest of my family). I have been on the hunt for a pie crust and filling that I am happy with and I think this is it.
The hubs was really skeptical and unenthusiastic when I told him I was making turkey meatloaf for dinner. For one thing, I have never bought ground turkey in my life so this was going to be an experiment. But Laura (from Laura in the Kitchen) convinced me that this was worth trying. On a side note, I do not know Laura Vitale personally, I am just one of her 2 million plus subscribers on YouTube. :p
