Monthly Mystery Munchies #27 with Gen
Have you been told to keep calm and curry on? Because for the wellness of all human kind, good curry (needs) no hurry? Could anyone ever get all curried away?
As you can already tell, the theme for this month cannot be that hard to guess. It’s not just curry mind you, but when the word curry is being used in tandem with food, you bet it will usually be synonymous with Indian cuisine.
Because. That’s just the way it is. With Indian as our chosen theme, it’s all about the spices. It’s that aroma, that fragrance, that satisfaction…mmmmm.
Here’s what Gen made using no less than 10 different types of spices for her Lamb Rogan Josh:
In her words:
Give me any excuse to throw it down in the kitchen and I will take it. I know a lot of people don’t like to fuss, but I was in my element in the kitchen, trying various dishes for hours at a time, and after a stressful couple of months, I was blissing out on cinnamon, cardamom, masala, cloves, you name it. What a joy this past month has been! Oh, and my house smelled amazing! I’m sure my neighbours thought I was setting up a spice factory. I would absolutely be Ginger Spice, because I had that in abundance. Aah yes, I do like abundance of a culinary nature.
If you have a smanzy-fancy plate like the one Gen has in her picture, use it! There’s something about well-plated food – it draws you IN to the dish in which it will strangely expand your palate. (I love, love her plate by the way!)
Before you start grimacing thinking this is an impossible task, don’t be! Gen’s Lamb Rogan Josh does NOT require you to slave for hours in the kitchen. By her own admission, you can do this within 45 minutes.
Don’t believe me? You now have my permission to click away from my blog and pop over to Gen’s Lamb Rogan Josh Recipe like pronto because I am certain that her recipe (and don’t forget mine!) is (are) all you”ll need to satisfy your craving for Indian food.
Bon Appetite! Or as said in Hindi āp kā khānā svādiṣṭa ho!Google says so.
