When I plan an Indian menu, I try and do a mix of curry or dal, a side with a thickish sauce, and a dry side. That way, there's something you can eat with rice and chapatti both, without it becoming too wet a meal or too dry. Essentially aiming for a balance of textures on the plate! My uncle was visiting us for lunch today and I knew I wanted to make a khatti meethi dal and palak paneer, but wasn't feeling very inspired about the dry side dish. I had cauliflower stuck in my head, but didn't want to make a boring old gobhi aloo or gobhi mattar. I thought I'd begin by frying some florets and see where that would take me. Turned out to be a really good place :D Here's my spicy fried vegetables recipe. I hope you enjoy it!
