Beyond being entertaining, the movie made me very hungry (AND I loved their metal compartmentalized lunchboxes!) I had made the mistake of only eating two pieces of fruit all morning before the movie. I was right there with Sajaan, who could barely wait until lunch time to open his box to smell the meal. Ever since then my mind can't focus without slipping back into the NEED to eat Indian food.
Zucchini Masala with black-eyed peas. It's exactly the same recipe as Bhindi Masala from Isa Does It (a very traditional Indian cookbook, if you haven't heard of it...) but subbing zucchini for okra because I couldn't find okra.
Served over brown rice with cilantro.
and a side of Barbati Sabji, spicy green beans from Vegan Richa. Topped with coconut flakes. I also bought a bunch of other fun spices for the recipe, including stinky hing:
What the hell else do I do with the rest of the bag?
The meal was enjoyed while listening to old Bollywood movie soundtracks. If you ignore the leers in the video, this song is great. And would that I could dance like that.
