Have I ever told you how much I love Indian food? It’s my all time favorite type of food to eat, in case you didn’t already know that. I’m obsessed with it. I can’t get enough. Sometimes I even dream about eating Indian food, and not just a little dish here and there, no I dream about devouring an entire feast. Yeah, in my dreams I eat it every single day of my life and I never get tired of it. In my dream, samosas are falling from the sky like it’s raining and I’m out in the street eating them as they fall onto my plate. I’m trying very hard to make that dream come true but I don’t think the people in my life really appreciate it. I’m always the first to suggest an Indian restaurant when my family and friends ask where we should go eat. I always get a no. One of these days though they’ll say yes and when they do, I’ll be ready for it.
I won’t tell you about the time I pretended to be super sick (lying on my deathbed) just so I can get a plate of Indian food out of pity. That was my only cure. It was a low point for me. Don’t judge. I will however, tell you about a time where I visited a close friend in North Carolina and we ate two Indian dinners in one night. IN ONE NIGHT. I guess we wanted to tour all of the city’s Indian Cuisine offerings. We started at one place and were forced (not really, we ate it willingly) to eat a bunch of delicious food. Then we ventured to another Indian restaurant (don’t ask us why) and within a few hours proceeded to eating an entire second dinner, filled with multiple dishes. Oh there were drinks in between that were involved and we made a night of it. Just me, my friend and a whole lot of curry and chutney and samosas. I was in heaven.
So here I am today with a yearning for vegetable samosas and the need to share it with all of you, friends. It might seem a little daunting at first but fight that feeling. It’s not daunting at all. What we have here is nothing but delicious pockets of curry flavored potatoes and peas. I’m all for anything wrapped in buttery pie dough, especially if potatoes are involved. So let’s shout a big WOO HOO at the top of our lungs (not optional) and get to making and eating samosas. Let’s be adventurous and try new dishes because that’s how we find new favorites, right? These here are your new favorite. I just know it.
