I am still in utter awe of how the Superbowl Game turned out and so happy for the team! Go Seahawks! Am I exhausted or am I exhausted with all that jumping and yelling! And also totally happy that I put up so many snacking options for the gameday So many of you made the Mozzarella sticks and Poppers and Jalapeno popper and havarti Dip! Thank you for trying them and loving them!! If you make something from the blog, please do let me know about it in the comments or on any social media, post pictures on the Facebook page, tag me on Instagram or twitter :)
Back to regular programming after all the awesome snacking. Make This fantastic Keema curry. Keema means minced meat and any Indian keema curry has some or the other meat in minced form. But you know what, the taste that everyone likes in the the meaty curries is usually not the meat, it is all the spices, herbs, the curry and way of preparation. Put anything else in the curry and it pretty much tastes as delicious!
Cauliflower comes to the rescue again today. Grated up and added to the delicious cilantro based curry. If you are not a big fan of cilantro, you can substitute a good portion of it with any greens of choice like spinach. Crumbled up Tempeh would work beautifully in this curry too, especially to give the dish a more toothy and textured result.
