Tonight for dinner I have an Indian Sampler plate.

Indian food is so fragrant, spicy, rich, flavorful, and euphoric!

Starting from top left going in a clockwise motion, there is Mutter Paneer which is peas in a gravy of mild spices with Indian Cheese, Baigan Bharta which is smoked and mashed eggplant with onions, garlic, and spices, Palak Paneer which is spinach and Indian cheese, Kadhi Pakoda which is gram flour dumplings cooked Punjabi style in yogurt and Indian spices, Dal Makhani which is black lentils and kidney beans cooked in a buttery gravy of tomatoes, onions, ginger, and garlic, Mutter Methi Malai which is fenugreek and sweet peas cooked in a cashew sauce with mild Indian spices, Basmanti Rice, and Masala Naan bread.

If you have never eaten Indian food you are denying yourself a life’s pleasure.

    I absolutely LOVE Indian food! So many great vegetarian options and can actually be quite healthy (as long as you’re careful!). My favorite is eggplant curry or anything with lentils 🙂

      Wow! Very nice. Glad to hear you love it too. I agree it can be very healthy. Many dishes are low in fat and high in fiber. Lentils and anything eggplant rocks! Have you ever eaten roasted Mediterranean eggplant or Iman Bayildi?
