So to honor my love if Indian food, I made "What a dal" from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker book.
Put everything in the slow cooker and cook on low for 6 - 8 hours. Blend up part of it to give a creamy consistency.
Honestly, this smelled wonderful while it was cooking, but was so boring when we went to eat it. It had lost all of its flavor. I doused it in sriracha to make it palatable. Maybe I let it cook too long.
Samosas, or Empanadas depending
This is the recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance. I hadn't tried it before, but I am glad that I did.
You can find the recipe on Google Books if you search for it.
The dough was a bit bland and boring and maybe it was the baking that didn't make it puff and flake all nicely like a samosa should.
The filling, on the other hand, was amazing! We had mustard seeds and coriander seeds popping, potatoes boiling, garlic browning, edamame defrosting - mix it all together and you have deliciousness. We ate the remaining portion of the filling straight out of the pan while the samosas baked. So good.
Overall this meal was okay, not the most amazing, but it was good to eat while we watched an episode of Deep Space Nine
