One time in Scotland visiting a friend, we were going to get something for dinner and she said, “Fancy an Indian?” I thought that was a strange way to ask someone if they want to go to an Indian restaurant. They may have invented English on that European island known as Great Britain, but that doesn’t mean they don’t screw it up sometimes! Anyways, we did fancy an Indian, and it was delish.
I love Indian food, and I love how they have so many vegetarian options. So that’s what I made last night. I was pretty lazy about this dish, but here it is. In a pan I threw in a bag of organic mixed veggies and sliced baby bella shrooms. Then a can of coconut milk. A little stock. And a bunch of spices – curry, tumeric, garam masala, etc. Brought it to a boil and then lowered the temp and simmered until I felt like it was done. Steamed up some brown rice and spooned the curry over top. Simple, easy, quick, and lazy.
I took a picture, but won’t share it here as Indian food doesn’t always look beautiful, but it sure does taste good! And so healthy – they say it has cancer fighting capabilities. And the brown rice will give me the carbs needed to get through today’s gym sesh and evening social run. And I need the help because it’s still 100 degrees outside!
Speaking of hot, no, the curry was not spicy. People think that all curry is spicy, they ain’t. I left it mild out of respect for the others in our house that I knew would be eating it. In my bowl however, I added a good amount of dried spicy spices. Yup, papa likes it HOT! Food that is, not running temps.
All for now, buh bye.
