Samosas and Indian Rice
Often on Sundays we take the time to cook something a little more involved. On this past Sunday in particular, it was snowing and sleeting most of the day so it was a fine time to be inside cooking. I must've run out of energy though since I'm just getting around to posting about it now. Both the samosas and rice were almost straight from Vegan with a Vengeance and it was the first time we had tried either recipe. Once again this book comes through as both were fabulous. We didn't have the ingredients on hand to make Isa's chutney but Darlene whipped up a tasty chutney-esque kind of thing with apricot jam, five-spice powder, rice vinegar and a pinch of cayenne. We had a lot of leftovers from this meal and the samosas in particular have garnered some oohs and aahs from my co-workers at lunch time the last two days.
