I had leftover decadent lentils & beans, but nothing else. And since we are leaving for vacation soon, I decided to basically cook to clean out my fridge. I made chicken to make it a full meal.
Clockwise : 1. Those Leftover Decadent Lentils & Beans I added in a little cream as they had become spicier overnight. .
2. That Freshly Steamed Rice .
3. That Foofoo Chicken Masala I cooked in seasoned mustard oil & tempered it with lots of garlic & onions. I then added in cubed boneless chicken, fresh coriander, tomatoes, salt & a hand pounded, preservative-free spice mix meant for chicken (from Surekha of course) & a splash of tomato puree (only because I needed to finish an open tetrapack) & simmered altogether till done. So so yummy!! .
4. Those Whole Wheat Parathas .
5. That Salad 😆 : Cucumber slices and lime (come on!!! They ARE salad ingredients! 😂 .
There's a place in Morton Grove that had the best lentil soup I've ever had. I used to go there multiple times a week for lunch, that's how much I liked it. These lentils, are no where near as good. Lol At least I tried to make them?
