I made another new recipe the other night–I’m on a roll, lately! This one is called Pakistani Kima–I got it from a friend and have no idea where she found it, so I really can’t give the original cook credit.
I didn’t get home from work until after 6:00, and this is a really simple recipe, so that was part of the appeal. It starts with chopped onion and garlic and a pound of ground beef (I, of course, used Bob’s grass-fed beef). Then you add a can of diced tomatoes, two potatoes (cubed), two cups of peas (the recipe calls for frozen and I had my good, fresh-frozen ones from our CSA), curry powder, salt, and cinnamon.
Well, you might know where I’m going here (no, mom, I didn’t add wine).
But we both really dislike cinnamon in savory foods, so I skipped the cinnamon. I did add a bit of extra curry, though.
I had used both white fingerling and purple potatoes, and it was so colorful–it looked like a party in a pot.
Of course, through the cooking process the colors were muted quite a bit.
It was good. Pretty good. Not great. I decided that, with all the wonderful, delicious recipes I’ve already tried in the past couple of years, I don’t need to hang onto this recipe since it was just ok.
But that’s what makes it so much fun, I guess, when I do find a recipe that we think is fantastic. If they were all great, it would be boring, right?
I think I’m going to try Vegetarian Korma tonight. . . I’ll let you know how it goes.
