Veena's Market Vindaloo with Zucchini Raitha

My experiment with Veena's Market Vindaloo was a huge success! Pork shoulder was very tender and tasty. If you want to have authentic Indian food at home, Veena's Indian recipe Kits is the answer! Clear instructions with packets labeled a child could follow.

Few mishaps cause not used to following recipes: 1) I didn't realize you have to marinade the pork overnight! 2) I threw the whole packet of chili powder in, oops. Thank goodness I made some zucchini raitha to cool our scorching tongues, not complaining, we loved it and helped clear our sinus. Demonstrating the use of a cast iron wok to fry/sear meats prior to stewing in my clay pot. Stir fried lots of veggies to go with Vindaloo. Enjoyed this meal tremendously. I rushed back from my beach walk, so excited to try.

Repurposed Rainbow Appetizer to Yummy Curry Dinner!

Photo_5

Rainbow Appetizer ingredients leftover from my cooking class yesterday were shouting to be repurposed into a curry dinner for tonight! Even had leftover diced garlic, ginger and some scallions. I didn't even have to pull out my chopping board. Notice, I didn't even have any rice or carbs! So light and refreshing.

Using same technique I teach in class: fry veggies first cause they don't stick to your wok like meat does. I used Earthy Delight's Tea Seed Oil. Oh, I added some red kidney beans to bulk it up. Do you see my lovely, unique batik wok mitt on the handles? It has a magnet so it stays on the handle when you take your hand off.  We designed this and has a patent pending. Everyone loves this cute concept and enjoy choosing their fav design. I pick up material whenever I go on my Asia travels.

Notice my cast iron wok and portable butane gas stove setup on top of my electric stove! I leave this permanently OUT so it's convenient. If you don't see it, you won't use it. I use my wok to cook most anything or just for reheating leftovers instead of using the microwave.
