I have begun to love Indian food, the flavors are amazing! I like how the dishes are satisfying and filling, and no meat is required. Best of all, the vegetables can be changed, what’s in your fridge- or what you prefer. This one was with carrots, cauliflower and potatoes. We usually enjoy our Indian dishes with some naan bread (especially the garlic flavor)! One day, I’d like to make my own naan…but that’s for another week!
