Indian Stew Blues

So after much deliberation, here I am...rocking the blogspot like a hurricane. At the moment, I'm enjoying fun-employment, which means I've got a lot of time on my hands. I decided to tackle the ever growing, ridiculously large amount of recipes in my trial binder. Yes, I'm a little Monk-like and have a carefully organized binder full of big time hit recipes (Ruth Reichl's Channing Way Shrimp Curry, Cook's Illustrated Lemon Bundt Cake, Martha's Pork Tenderloin, just to name a few). Then, there's the other fat guy that is busting at the seams full of all the recipes that I've been meaning to try. Some are as old as my Cooking Light subscription. I kicked that guy out a long time ago and continually shock myself that there are some recipes still lingering. No offense to all you avid CL fans, it's just not for me. I'm more of the Paula Deen the butter, love the fat. I just remember everything in moderation as my Dad always tells me!

So what recipe to start with? Well, I'll begin with the most recent. I'm on a big kick to ramp up my Indian cuisine. I'm lucky enough to have some great go to spots here in DC. Rasika being at the top of that list. I can't get enough of the curries, naan, and chutneys...yum! So when I saw this recipe in Everyday Food, I had to give it a try. I made it for lunch the other day and found myself ravenous after a few hours. The prep and cooking process were fairly easy, but the end result wasn't anything to share. So this recipe gets low marks in my book for flavor and sustainability! I'm sure that I could tweak the recipe a little bit to make it more to my liking, but why try, I've got a long list to work through and only winners will make it to the final round...the organized binder!
