I hope you had a great summer. The highlight of my summer was celebrating our mother’s 80th birthday. It was a great celebration and a family reunion. Mom was overwhelmed with joy and pride as the whole family, as well as her nieces and nephews, came to wish her a very Happy Birthday. She was one happy woman – well deserved.
My biggest goal this summer was to revisit my newsletter and website. I have to confess, I procrastinated more than I want to admit. Every time I sat down to review, I found myself organizing, cleaning, and even paying bills. After much deliberation, I finally made one big decision; I will start a blog.
Introducing the Cuisine Of India Demystified blog
I wrote my first blog – You Do Need Spices. In the blog, I hope to take you on an Indian culinary journey. Check out the blog.
The best part of the blog will be readers’ interactions. Please feel free to leave your comments for each blog. You may subscribe to the blog and get regular updates.
Recipes will now be part of the blog. The first recipe I’m highlighting is the most versatile Curried Potatoes, using the basic six spices. This is one of the most often cooked recipes in my family. It is great hot and cold. I always make a little extra so I can have some with my toast for breakfast the next day. Serve it as a side dish with your favorite meal.
Potatoes are used extensively in Indian cooking. They are inexpensive, keep at room temperature, and you can make a variety of dishes in a hurry. My mother always kept potatoes on hand, and so do I. In India, people often dropped by unannounced, and often you would serve them a quick meal or snack. I can quickly make Curried Potatoes and serve it with paratha (pan-fried flatbread) and plain yogurt – it is one of those comfort foods, leaving guests happy and satisfied.
Happy and Healthy Cooking!
