Indian food

Butter Chicken With Gently Spiced Jasmine Rice

cooking fever

I have absolutely no idea why I am on this constant cooking fit. It is very unlike me and I am really digging it :)

This week I work the day shift and am home by 6. I immediately go to the fridge, check my interest and get cracking on recipes I have pinned for later. (Some of them also come from wordpress blogs I have been following.

Last night I settled for some Baba Ganoush, Pineapple Quesadillas and Stuffed Jalapeños. When making all of this it really helps me to use up the veggies we get at the market (it’s never just 1 or 2 onions. It’s more like here’s 10 for 2 dollars)

Adam also picked up this awesome new blender last night so I had to give it a try.


Wandering Around Anam Area

There are places in Seoul that you end up at that you have never been before. The thing is, though, nearly every place in Seoul pretty much looks the same. Except for several key places like, Samcheongdong and Insadong, otherwise you can pretty much expect the same old...same old.

What's For Dinner? Yellow Lentil Curry

Sometimes a good home cooked meal is what you need to wash away city life. I have been enjoying dal or lentil curry dishes at Indian restaurants and wondered if I could make the same thing at home. After finding a recipe online I figured why not give it a try.

What side dishes would foreigner's prefer with their Indian food?

Last night JH and I went to Old Delhi, a restaurant here in Nowon at the end of Culture Street, which serves up very delicious Indian fare. Around the time we were nearly finished, and ordered more garlic naan, the restaurant owner came over to our table and asked the following question.

"What side dishes would foreigner's prefer with their Indian food?"

Of course, this was through JH's translation and the point of his question was that when foreigners visit his restaurant they usually do not eat the side dishes, and so he was wondering what other options he could serve. The current side dishes were kimchi, pickled radish and pickles. I enjoy the pickles but never touch the rest. 

Nowon Eats: Old Delhi

Last week, on a rainy evening, I embarked on having dinner together with coworkers in the hip part of Nowon. This is known as the "Culture Street" which is nearby the large Lotte Department store. The plan was to go to an Indian restaurant to celebrate some birthdays at work. But, I didn't know where this place was and so waited nearby the "clown statue" for the group.
