Although there have been no blogs in the last couple of days, cooking has not stopped. I made a very South Indian meal last night. One of my brother's favorites - parrupu (lentils) with varthakozhambu (really can't translate that one! - a yummily sour stew-ish dish) with Keerai masiyal (mashed spinach). I don't think I can do justice to writing the details of such a dish. One of my friends (at another blog) is going to write a piece on varthakozhambu and I will link to it this weekend. And also find a recipe for the spinach dish and link that too!! But, it was yummy.
Today, I threw together the left-over Seitan with sphagetti, peppers, mushrooms and Trader Joe's vegan meatballs in a Trader Joe's marinara sauce (bow to Trader Joe's!). I doctor the sauce based on my taste - I added chilli powder, garlic and herbs today. Another trip to Trader Joe's coming up this weekend!!
I sauteed the Seitan some more today (without meaning to - I left it on the stove too long) and the pieces browned and were crispy at the edges. I liked this version of Seitan a lot more!
Hopefully, I'll try something new this weekend... Happy Friday!
