The House Smells So Good

October 13th, 2012 at 03:33 pm

I will say that this recipe wasn't the best ever (maybe we could use some practice), but I would make it again just for the smell. I came home last night and it smelled like an Indian household. YUM!

**ETA: Scratch that. Apparently dh forgot the salt the first time. He made it again and it was just divine. Who knew a little salt could make such a difference?**

I am also wondering if this one will taste better reheated.

Don't get me wrong - it was good! It's just I am used to the real thing, so our version was a little lacking.

Reminds me, we also got a new Indian grocery store just down the street. OMG. We haven't checked it out yet - what are we waiting for? (They also have food "to go" there - will have to try it out some time this month).

& also, this is another crockpot recipe we have been using a lot:

The thing about Indian food is that it tends to be so complex and time-consuming to make. So I LOVE these crockpot recipes.

    That sounds delicious, except, I don't know what cardamon pods are.

    BF makes a green curry chicken dish that melts in your mouth. Yum.

    I really need to get my crockpot cleaned and fixed up ... Especially with how cold it is getting!

  4. Monkey Mama Says:

    You can just use ground cardamon - is mentioned in the comments of the recipe.

    There is a good Indian Slow cooker cookbook. I borrowed it from the library a while back so don't have the exact name off hand, but the results were pretty authentic.

    @Thriftorama - Perfect!! I added to my Christmas wish list.
