In addition to being the only white girl in the store, I was also on my weirdest behavior. In a store where I only recognized about 50% of the words on the labels, I relied heavily on stalking other people’s purchases. I was surprised to see how many customer were spending time in front of the wall of ready to eat packets of vegetarian meals and throwing stacks and stacks into their cart. Obviously, I had to join the party, so I picked up some of the Indian dishes I recognized and figured I would keep them on hand for a quick dinner. I left with a random array of spices, cheap sesame seeds, fresh herbs, and 4 boxes of Indian food for less than 20 bucks.
Those packets? I’m kinda obsessed. In fact, right after we finished them, I went online and ordered another lot (what’s in the huge box? Oh, you know, just Indian food)
|In the freezer aisle, super cheap|
It’s like take-out, but cheaper and faster…
Lastly…another quick and easy meal? Nizza or Nazza….a naan pizza. This is probably wrong on so many levels, but it combines my husband’s love of Indian food and pizza and he thinks it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.
Favorite Indian dish? I love anything with Paneer and Dal Makhani.
Staples you keep on hand for a quick and easy dinner you can put together with your eyes closed? Indian food packets are the new pasta and sauce.
