Cindy Lou Vindaloo...
One of my greatest loves in all of this world is Indian food. I will love it to my dying day, and I will go on record as calling it some of the most insane comfort foods out there. My big problem with Indian food? Let's see, there's ghee, there's cream, there's oil...there are my pants over in the corner that don't fit anymore.
So my inner Brini Maxwell says, "Make your own Indian food" (and also adds the "Why didn't you think of that" aside with the twinkle sound)...
Problem. Any Indian or Indian-esque dish I make tastes exactly the same. No, really. Chana Masala tastes like Cauliflower Curry tastes like Daal and all of the above mentioned could have masqueraded as my dinner last night, Vindaloo Vegetables from fatfreevegan.com.
It can't be the recipes, I really don't think there's some sort of conspiracy to keep wonderful Indian food out of my kitchen. I totally need help!
Of course there's no picture of the food. I wish there were. Actually, not so much. I don't want to show my lack of success.
