Dinner…

In keeping with the name of this thing, here’s what we enjoyed for dinner last night.

Clockwise from the top: rice, raita, melon, naan, pork vindaloo, potato curry

In honor of our new paychecks (another one of which is coming this week – crazy!), I decided it was time to buy a few new cookbooks. The first of which arrived last week and was put to use immediately. I’d checked 660 Curries by Raghavan Iyer from the library enough times to know that it was worth purchasing. It has a huge section on legume and vegetable curries, which is good when you’re trying to each less meat. The vindaloo was the first I’ve ever made and it turned out great – very spicy and vinegary. Perfect with rice, and raita with naan.

We used the Big Green Egg to cook the naan. The Egg came through for us and did a great job – the naan was nearly as good as the restaurant stuff.

This went quick!

    Hi guys. Glad to see your bounty. We too are trying to eat less meat; it’s cheaper and it’s tasty (well, if done right!). We’ve tried a lot of spicy dal with mashed potatoes. Do you do that? Lentils are surprisingly versatile. Later, dudes.
