Mini Idly & Kheema Curry

Mini Idly & Kheema Curry

Apl 2017 - Cam8

Like many of my foodie  friends (now known, and yet to meet one’s)…I am too, a self professed cook. My American friends think that…there are only three ingredients in Indian cooking…spices, chilies and tomatoes! Maybe…yes. But, I really don’t think that is enough…one needs passion. Cooking isn’t just about mixing ingredients…its magic, pure addiction…to the alchemy of the flavors. And, in fact each dish prepared is a story in itself and the cook the author. :)

So, that is how, this dish was prepared today. I was on the mission to make idlies and kheema korma. Sounds like a perfect plan, right! Then, tweaked it a little with peppercorns and turned it on to the mini idlies. They were just out of this world. Yum, to the core. :)
