I'm not sure what it is, but lately I've been having a taste for Indian food. If I could have a wish fulfilled right now (concerning Indian food, that is), I'd love to eat at the Curryblossom Cafe. My cousin hosted a baby shower there, and let me tell you, um um good! Plus, I love Vimala's philosophy that no one should go without food because they cannot pay. Food is a human right.
Now, nothing I cook will light a candle to what Vimala prepares, but since I can't go there, I will make do with trying dishes at home that satisfy my taste for Indian cuisine.
This time I tried a new dish in my crockpot. It's a butter chicken recipe that can be found HERE. I love all of the flavors and despite the name "butter chicken," the flavors are totally different from what I imagined. When I thought "butter chicken", my mind went to savory flavors, like what you would taste from roasted chicken. Totally different! Just imagine the flavors of coconut milk, and curry, and garam masala, and so much more.
Here's a video of me preparing the dish. (The first part of the video is a joint birthday party for 3 little ones.)
