SUREEEEE, first of all, he's never eaten Indian food in his life, sticks his nose up at curry, and he's not even a fan of rice or beans. This would prove to be an interesting dinner out (which we hardly EVER do) and one that I am positive we are not ready to tackle yet.
So, with those things (and others) in my mind and not on my tongue I decide to word it slightly differently:
"How about we try a few things here at home first and if you like them we will venture out of your Canadian bubble"
Before I get into the actual post I will tell you that he didn't like the rice or veggies but he was a fan of the chicken. I personally enjoyed it all but I like things he does not, because, well, I am better than him.
WAIT, not better as in I am on a pedestal, better as in I am a little more well rounded in the cuisines of the world, I could have rephrased but, meh.
So dinner was a mixture of a few flavors. We had tandoori chicken but the rice and veggie dish was more of the earthy blends traditionally found in a garam masala. Garam masala is usually a mixture of 5 or more ground spices incorporating cinnamon, cardamom and cloves. I only used 4 spices so what do you call that? I dunno but it tasted good to me.
Next time around will be some curry dishes - but no goat, even I don't like that!
Try it out, let me know what you think. If nothing else, it is a new way to enjoy your rice :)
