There’s ONE DAY LEFT. One of my new year’s resolutions is to travel more. Really it’s one of the largest resolutions in my life. I have a few plans up in the air for 2012, including Egypt, and possibly Patagonia too, but this is something I can’t pass up. I need your help!
Help me get to India! Head over to Jetsetter and Vote for my resolution to travel more and we could see Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan, Jaipur and Bundi FREE. A trip of a lifetime, no? Please? Jetsetter accepts 1 vote per person per day until January 31st, so if you’ve already voted please come back again tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, and maybe I’ll be a winner.
The interface is a bit funky. Just click on the big orange button that says “Vote for this Resolution” and make your own!
When I cook just for myself I find it’s easiest and most satisfying to reach for the Indian spices. I love the tangy smokiness of garam masala and warm savory muchi curry the most. Garam masala means hot mixture in Hindi and is any combination of dried chilis, anise, cumin and coriander. The mystery inherent in Indian spice mixtures has always fascinated me. I usually buy curry pastes and dried curries pre-mixed and only recently have I ventured into other common Indian spices like whole coriander and anise and clove. I would love to someday walk through the spice markets in north and south India; I’m sure each region has very different offerings. I’d love to sample unknown mixtures and explore Indian cuisine, from simply eating new dishes to learning how to make them from scratch.
