First up, Cauliflower with Ginger, Cashew Onion Sauce
Onions in the pan and beginning to caramelize
All the sauce ingredients except for vinegar, tomato paste, and water in pan.
Finished dish with steamed cauliflower. I just realized that I did forget the cashews and coconut.
Finished Tamarind-Spiced glazed roast of Brussels sprouts, onion, and chickpeas
Before going onto the hot pan.
The answer is that I didn't really care for either. I didn't like the cauliflower with cashew onion sauce at all. I will be throwing the leftovers out in fact. I thought the roast was okay, but I probably won't make it again. I admit that this might be due to the fact that I didn't have coriander leaves and had to substitute dried coriander. Honestly, when you live in a small town the only fresh herbs you can get in abundance are parsley and cilantro. I will try Indian dishes again, but my fear remains.
Please note: I am aware that India is a huge country and represent many different style of cooking. I am not accustomed to any of them.
