Two Green Subzis On A Snowy Day (And A Side Of Lamb Shanks!)

Well, the snow is pretty blinding if you continue to stare out the window, and since I’m not in the mood to make any snow-angels outside, I thought of doing the next best thing:  being an angel in the kitchen.  Yeah, yeah, I know that’s lame, but still, if it conjures up images of me flying around between stove and sink and refrigerator, well, you’ve come up with a half-decent picture, I’d say.  And what would all that angelic activity produce?  The most angelic dishes, of course.  Fit for a heavenly feast.  Here’s what:

  • A Palak Saag made with spinach and tomatoes, and seasoned with red onions, garlic and dry red chillies.
  • A Broccoli Subzi seasoned with cumin, red  onions, garlic and coconut-chutney.
  • A hearty batch of Lamb Shanks pressure-cooked for starters, and then seasoned in the skillet with fried onions and a secret masala.

I guess I’ll serve this up with fresh hot white Basmati rice and whole-wheat Rotis later tonight.  Picture a bunch of devils feasting on all this glorious fare!
