Potato, Peas and Cheese, a great spicy meal on a cold snowy evening!
I stopped at The Oven on the way home and picked up some samosas and bread to go with tonite's dinner. Indian food is delicious!
Clockwise: cilantro, garlic, habanero chili, peas, potato, onion and tomato. Ginger in the middle.
Cut some paneer into cubes and lightly fry it till golden.
Blend garlic, onion and ginger till it's smooth. Do the same with some cilantro and the tomato. Cook the onion mix in some hot oil till it starts to brown, then add the tomato mix, coriander, cumin, turmeric and paprika. I took Steve's advice and got a bunch of fresh spices from Open Harvest a while back.
Cook this mixture a couple minutes and then add fresh peas, a large diced potato and the cheese. For extra zip, I added the whole habanero that I cut in half. No seeds! I grew a bunch of these little fireballs in 2008 and they are hotter than hell. Cover with 3 cups of water and simmer for a half hour.
Just enough zing from the habanero to clear my sinuses!
