    It took four years of absence to enjoy it.

    A few more and I actually miss it. Luckily some friends know how to make it. I'll learn and some day make my own.

    A Sweet Temptation

    No topic on Indian food can be complete without mentioning Indian sweets.  Indian sweets are a part of the culture. When there is good news to be shared, we give sweets, to sweeten the mouth, before sharing the news. At weddings and celebrations, the meal begins with a sweet...

    Butter Chicken, Naan, And Veggie Korma And Chickpeas! Yum!

    my stepmom is from africa so I got into african indian food early in life. My stepmom made curry oxtail, curry chicken, lentils, etc etc, and she makes the best indian-african food. OMG if you never had curry you are missing out. Of course, it has to be made right.

    Spicy Indian Food Is The Best

    Last weekend I went to an Indian restaurant with some friends and got the Chicken Tikka Masala.  The spicy sauce and rice combined perfectly.  Add that to some Naan and you've got yourself one heck of a good meal.

    Take It For Granted
