indian food.. always makes me happy :)

im always happy with indian food. i have no idea how to cook it authentically, but it usually comes out super yummy.

tonight, i tried to make biryani rice w/ a spice mix (national mutton biryani mix) a co-worker gave me. i cooked brown rice in the rice cooker. i fried up some onion, added the cooked rice, some frozen green peas and some of the spice mix. the whole mixture became a bit mushy... not really what i was going for, but still quite tasty.

i made a curry/stew dish also. i fried some onions and garlic w/ chickpeas, tomatoes and winter squash. (canned chickpeas, canned tomatoes and frozen squash). for spices, i used a little cinnamon, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper, at the end i stirred in some light coconut milk.... came out delicious!!!!

i also baked up some frozen samosas that i found in the grocery store, and served them with some mango chutney.

i need to figure out how to make biryani better.... but all in all, yum yum yum :)
