This didn’t start out to be Indian food, it just kind of got there gradually.
Turned out to be Indian Food
I had cubed some potatoes and cooked them most of the way, then did something with half of them — roasted them, I think, but had the other half left. So I finished cooking them. Then I drained them and added some peas and tomato sauce.
Meanwhile, I cooked some Jasmine rice. Also put a big fat clove of garlic into the toaster oven at 450F for about 10-15 minutes. Since I had a puddle of olive oil to one side, I sprinkled some garam masala into the puddle to toast.
When the garlic was soft, I mooshed it up and stirred it into the vegetables. Added some salt.
Charlie doesn’t like spice, so I didn’t give him any; I scraped that toasted garam masala off the tray and plopped it right down on the middle of my serving and stirred it in.
MY, it was good!
