The Joy of Cooking: American Style

From the Top Left: Habenero Shrimp, Mint Pea Soup, Spinach and Mushroom Pockets

After a few nights of Indian food, I decided to try some recipes from The Cook’s Bible. The Shrimps were purchased at Whole Food’s (or Whole Pay Check) for $1.99 each. The soup along with the pockets were made from scratch and I have to say they were pretty tasty. Even without a large Cusinart we were able to blend the soup pretty darn well.

Next time around when making the soup, I may add some spice to give it a bit of a kick.

The Joy of Cooking: The Green Meal

From Top Left: Spinach Chicken, Okra Fry, Chapathis, Veggie Spinach Chicken, Bell Peppers

My yearn to cooking classic Indian dishes took flight Saturday night as I made a A Very Green Meal. No, the meal was not Eco-Friendly; rather made up of all green veggies. Comprised of Spinach Chicken (both Veg and Non-Veg), Bell Peppers with Coconut and Cashews and Okra. In addition, the husband made some wonderful Chapthi to go along with this Green Meal.

For those Veggies, like myself who have carnivorous counterparts, use Quran Naked Chicken as a substitute in any chicken recipe, it works really well and is a high source of protein.

The Joy of Cooking: Monday Night Dinner

Hyderabadi Chicken and Ginger-Garlic Eggs.

Monday Night Dinner. A new tradition that I’ve started as a Joshi and I think is going to be a successful endeavor. Last nights dinner included Hyderabadi Chicken and Ginger-Garlic Eggs, recipe courtesy of SriVani R. Ganti.

While I did not try the chicken, the Ginger-Garlic Eggs came out really well. I’m thinking of making a Deviled Eggs Indian style sometime soon.

Tomorrow will be another Indian cooking adventure, stay tuned!
