So, I came across another Indian cookbook author and have been trying out a few recipes. (I put her cookbook on my Amazon wish list - will get it for Christmas if nothing else).
But she has a bunch of recipes on her website.
I tend to fry up potatoes on the weekends and so I decided to try an Indian version today:
Different spices that ended up tasting pretty similar to our "paprikia/salt/pepper" blend. Dh said the spice was pretty subtle. I told him I had doubled the spices. I think "tripling" them will be the sweet spot for this dish. We like our spice.
What I am intrigued by is this dish: Indian Style Chili.
I still have to find a samosa recipe, for the young'un who is on a samosa kick. Just been busy with other things.
What we don't have and what I want is a good and simple Thai curry recipe. I tried one while dh and the kids were sick one week in winter. I thought it was okay and dh and the kids didn't like it. They had some flu and their tastes buds were way off. I just mentioned and dh said he liked it. I said, "That is not what I recall". Though it's possible they would like it better in good health. I think I rather scour the internet for a similar recipe with high reviews. I was healthy and the flavor was a little off to me.
So those are my two current cooking goals. To find a good and easy samosa and thai curry recipes.
P.S. Check out my last post - a good balsamic chicken recipe.
