We also celebrate by eating a lot. I really think this is the focal point of most holidays, anyway.
Okay, so I cooked yesterday, and I definitely would have posted. However, the dish I prepared was for a Diwali party, and I didn't want to ruin the surprise for the guests!!
I made a cabbage curry of sorts. More like a cabbage gravy? Well either way, it goes well with rice (which I didn't eat). Sigh. Life of a fitness gourmet.
First I heated vegetable oil, lots of cumin, garlic, and mixed in a can of stewed tomatoes (which pretty beneficial, since it contained onions which I hate to cut!), 1 teaspoon of garam masala, and a small amount of chili powder.
In another pan, I sauteed the cabbage in some more vegetable oil. (Yes, I went a little liberal on the oil this time, but only because it was for a party). I also added some turmeric.
To the tomato mixture, I added 2 teaspoons of curry powder, and then combined the cabbage and tomato portions together.
After adding salt to taste, it was done!
I ended up adding the 1/4 cup of left over tomato juice for a more liquid consistency (not pictured).
This dish seemed to be a hit...I'd call it a success!
