Tag Archives: Indian Food
I’m sharing a blast from the past today. It’s a post I’ve published before – but totally still useful in keeping busy over the cold and long winter months for my friends who don’t live somewhere hot.
Have you been hibernating? When it’s dark at 5 o’clock and your toes are freezing, the last thing you want to do is hang outside all day. So here are my suggestions for fun activities to do inside:
1) Go for Indian Food – The hot, hot heat of spicy Indian flavours will keep the fires warm, not to mention your sinuses clear. Round up your besties and make it a girls night out. The spices in curry are full of antioxidants and good for you. Finish your meal off with a refreshing and healthy mango lassi – a yogurt based smoothie. Try my recipe at home for a delicious Cauliflower + Chickpea Curry.
This recipe was inspired by a rouge can of chickpeas I had sitting in my pantry for almost 6 months. Since I love curry, I decided to make an Indian Chickpea & Cauliflower Curry to serve over steamed basmati rice or naan bread. Rice works better because the curry is a bit thin and can absorb better in rice.
Serve with a fresh green salad or some sliced cucumbers and you have an easy, hearty and flavourful weeknight dinner. Double the recipe and make an extra batch – because it freezes very well! (more…)
