This Month's Film: A Passage to India
Cuisine: Indian (Bihar)

In years past, many of the Indian main dishes I prepared involved curry powder and coconut milk. But this one was quite different, and pleasantly so. The spices included garam masala, cayenne pepper, garlic, and ginger, in a sauce of tomatoes and onions. Very unlike any Indian food I've ever prepared or eaten, but delicious nonetheless.

The recipe will be posted at the end of the month, along with my 'Passage to India' film review.
