As most of you know, I love braised beef–any way you want to serve it to me. But my husband is pickier and so I am always looking for more interesting ways of changing it up. This Wasabi Brisket featured at The Skinny Gourmet fits the bill perfectly. The ingredients are going on my grocery list as soon as I finish typing this.
I love Aloo Mattar (Indian potatoes and peas). It was the first Indian dish I fell in love with–my childhood best friend’s husband is Indian, and he suggested it as “starter Indian food.” He was totally right. It was not until moving to a town with a good Indian restaurant that served a nonetheless terrible Aloo Mattar that I was forced to branch out, at least as far as American restaurant Indian dishes. Of course since then, I have branched out across the entire sub continent, which is why I was so excited to see a South Indian Style Aloo Mattar on the always reliable Tigers & Strawberries. This is actually being made this week, but I am including it here anyway!
