It was pretty fun, although hectic. We had sag paneer (fried spinach with chunks of Indian cheese), which I don't usually like, but I liked this time. We made dhal, which is a thick lentil stew. We made a dish of spiced carrots and peas with cumin, garam masala, coriander, and pomegranate seeds, which was fabulous. We made basmati rice, and I resolved to try sprinkling cumin seeds in my rice in the future. We also made naan, although we had oven trouble and it came out a bit doughy.
Overall, the dinner was absolutely delicious. We even had mango lassis for dessert, although we used mango pieces and they came out a bit fiberous (I like using pulp better). Great food, great company...a great evening. I can't wait to try it for myself. I need an Indian cookbook.
Interestingly, Tyler helped in the kitchen (I love my man), but Sierra's Indian boyfriend did not. Hmmmmmmmmm.
