I have a passion for Indian food. In fact, I cook it so well that my Indian friends are impressed by how authentic my Indian cooking is and insist that I was Indian in my past life. My love for Indian food started about 6 years ago. I had a friend who was half Indian and half Armenian. Her mom would cook the most amazing food. In fact, after we went our separate ways, her mom's cooking is all I miss. Now, I make it best! This is my father's twist on the traditional Indian dish. I learned from the best. I actually think, my love and passion for cooking, I got from my dad. He's an amazing cook. This dish is simple to make but has such complex flavors. The mix of the textures and the contrasting temperatures of the dish make it an amazing eating experience. I believe this is the first of my Indian recipes on here so enjoy and I'll put up some more soon!
