|A truly fantastic cookbook!|
Rice Pilaf with Cashews, Cranberries and Saffron was so, so tasty (and easy - the directions were complete and unambiguous).
Prawns in Pomegranate Curry was the main course and although I made enough for dinner tomorrow, it was consumed by my dear fiancee who described it as "Awesome - really, REALLY good!". I liked how the recipe included this:
If you have any leftover juice, add shots of vodka and ice to it and drink as an aperitif to set a festive mood for dinner.
Thank you Meeru & Vij! It's honestly the first time in my life that I've been able to cook restaurant-tasty Indian food at home (I butcher Aloo Gobi. I try, but I always end up with soggy, ill-cooked cauliflowers and inconsistently cooked potatoes in a bizarre melange of various spices). I highly recommend this cookbook to anyone who loves Indian food even half as much as I do - good way to spend a gift certificate.

Having a lovely dinner cooked for you at home with wine and candlelight is one of the best things going (and certainly a romantic Valentine's gesture).

Mix Vij in, and *WOW* - I had to blog about it!
|"Green Beans, Potatoes & Spinach" (pg. 86). There were seconds, but he ate them!|
|Steamed-to-perfection spiced Sablefish (pg. 139). Awesome!!!|
