Date night: Indian dinner!

Having Indian food back home is nothing out of the ordinary. It’s something we’re used to all the time and basically not a big deal. Going out for Indian food in Georgia is a delicacy for me and the husband. Not only cause it seems to be the only Indian restaurant in this small town, but a bit on the pricy side as well. Definitely worth every penny though :)

When we go, our order is usually pretty standard: Butter chicken, garlic naans, chicken biryani, pistachio kulfi and rice pudding

Hope you all have a great weekend 😀


Home cooked meal…Indian style!

 So I come from a traditional Indian family and the one thing we love to do is eat. No matter what occasion it is or even if it’s your everyday dinner, quantity is a must! (We just love to feed you!) And because I do miss home a lot, I went to an Indian grocery store here (I was SHOCKED I found one too, then again we do have the 2nd largest population in the world, so we must be everywhere) and made a curry called Laziz Tikka Masala. Translation: Chicken in a luscious, spicy, creamy tomato curry!  I got this recipe from “How to Cook Indian by Sanjeev Kapoor” a renowned Indian chef whose recipe books I follow ever so carefully.  You can have this with bread or even rice for that matter! It’s easy to make, a bit of a long process as you have to marinate the chicken twice, but definitely worth the time!

 The end result is delicious!

I made it with rice and cumin seeds!
