Make turmeric paste! We are still working through the giant batch we made, it stores well in jars in the freezer. The man will stir a spoonful into tea (any tea, black, chai, etc, he LOVES that stuff!), soup, curries, stir fries, etc. The taste is quite strong and earthy so I do not like it in the golden milk he favours but it is an excellent addition to cooked dishes.

The tandoori masala is not as delicious as I'd hoped so I am amending it to suit my tastes. I may add some of the turmeric paste and paprika for colour but not chilis, the kids can't handle any sort of spice.

I bookmarked your post on the paste...just have to pick up a few more items...I should go at lunch today...I am so bored with the same old things to eat..and yet, oddly humbled and happy that we have so many choices in our country where this complaint would be welcomed in so many other countries...( I need to shut up and just stop being lazy!)

I tried 2 tandoori masala blends, a mash up of recipes from all over the place. One is milder and we'll be having it tonight, the other is more intensely flavoured and will have to wait for another dinner. I'm excited to try them both, the fragrance is amazing. Here's the post with step-by step instructions and lots of photos. I sure wish you could smell it through the computer, it's intense!

Sambar is next on the list though I think I'll have to take care with that one, the mister doesn't do well with legumes and it includes some pulses.

I usually don't care much for most Indian food but your meal looks delicious and probably tasted even better. I may have to give the masala mixes a chance. I do love naan and some chicken curries but it's been years since I've made either. There aren't many Indian restaurants in Tulsa or probably in our entire state, so it's not like we can dine on Indian cuisine unless I make it myself.

Tator tots or hash brown patties, they're still yummy! Love, love, love potatoes!

Now I have to find recipes to use those spice blends. And make the spice blends, too.

Love, love, love potatoes!

So do I! My aunt asked what I would be making for Easter dinner and when I told her I was making oven-roasted potatoes, she said "Of course you're making potatoes" and I could practically hear the Roll Eyes

Having the left over biryani rice today I think it's a good idea to forgo the whole spices right in the pot or at least tie them into a little cheese cloth ball. I bit into a coriander pod, YECH! Soapy  Tongue.

I made butter chicken with the tandoori masala, turned out ok.

We made beef jerky! I confess I've had a food dehydrator, a 9 tray Excalibur for about 10 years, and never used it before now. The man wanted to preserve some food for camping trips this summer and we just took the meat out of the "oven" where it's been drying out for hours now. It's good! Weird but good. Protein cardboard, ha ha.

Yeah homemade jerky is usually a little drier/stiffer than the store bought stuff. There's a meat market (butcher shop) near me that sells jerky they make themselves. It's the best jerky ever, even if it is a bit dry.

Next on my list is homemade sriracha sauce. Doesn't that look like fun?
