My plate before and after the feast. Gastric joy! If I was at my house, I would have licked the plate clean, but in other people's homes, manners. Continuing on from our healthy Indian Afghan feast from yesterday, here are the remaining three dishes going clockwise starting from the 30 minute position.
If I had to pick a favorite of the six dishes it would be this one, grilled Turkey Kababs made with organic Turkey and spices, and is gluten-free. Turkey is a leaner meat compared to beef or lamb, and I dig the idea of blending a popular American meat with Indian spices.
Next up is Indian Aloo Paratha which is potato stuffed dough filled with spices accompanied with organic yogurt dip with more spices.
And to finish up, we have Afghani Pulao, a rice dish called Golden Sela cooked Afghan style with spices. This dish is what mom is most famous for because she has cut much of the fat out from the traditional version yet retains the flavor experience. This rice dish is also gluten-free. This was my first time to try Pulao, so I can't compare. All I can say is that for a first time experience I had three helpings.
Demand for mom's cooking from family and friends has become so popular she started a catering business in the Bay Area. She has even served some of her incredible food at local schools which I think is awesome because it is introducing children to different global cuisine and a blending of cultures. I have no doubt the turkey kababs are a hit with the kids. I could eat a whole plate of those kababs.
Next time mom and Amrita are cooking, I'm coming over. Good times!
