Hard Shell Tacos

Last Saturday, I was determined to dedicate myself to the idiot box and I did. Since I was up at 6 am as P was leaving for work, I turned the TV on and one after the other I saw 8 flicks (Most of them side by side). Oh and did I mention, this was only till 1 pm.

Panch Phoran Naan

Panch Phoran Naan

My most favorite spice mix is Panch phoran. It is Bengali spice mix and makes for the most flavorful tadka. It contains 5 spices, namely:  fenugreek seed, nigella seed, cumin seed, black mustard seed and fennel seed in equal parts. I use it in a lot of dishes so why not naan too. 🙂

Mango-Cucumber Salsa

I am a salsa fan and the pati has adapted to it too. He dips almost everything he can it in. 🙂 I woek up one morning thinking about a mango salsa and tadaaa…I made it finally.

For September, Patriv gave us a beautiful Empanada to try in the kitchen. Since my husband is from a vegetarian family, I decided to make this with bulgar and spices. I am sorry for posting late.
