pic looks yummy...nice big mushrooms in there with a lot of meat Smile

They're actually red skin potatoes. I had trouble getting a good pic with the smoke and steam. Lens kept fogging up. Also I had to lower the resolution as I'm over my high speed data.

It was tasty. Even more so today after the gravy soaked all into it. The only think is I had never used this brand of Nihari masala. I believe its Indian style adaptation of Pakistani style.

The green cardamom and cinnamon stick that was in the mix really set it off. But if I do this again next time I'll buy more potatoes. I liked the meat but it was bursting with curry flavor. So a potato really balanced that. Now the taters are all gone and I dont have any rice. Haha. First world problems eh? Tongue

I am a mushroom lover, I hate taters, but love mushroom thoughts went there HAHA COOL and happy you enjoyed it.

yea I agree a lot of things taste better the next day and sit and soak to make a lot of flavor

Spring rolls with tuna fish and veggies inside.

Going food shopping today so who knows what I'll wind up finding on markdown. But the plan for tomorrow is something I've never done.

I had a little bug in my brain thinking wouldnt a cast iron skillet work well as a deep dish pizza pan? Looked on YouTube. Turns out rule 34 also applies to food porn.

So I'm planning on making pizza dough from scratch reducing down some off the shelf spaghetti sauce with some onions and garlic thrown in for flavor and making a Chicago style deep dish pizza.

Never had one before. And it intrigues me as it is upside down. Cheese then toppings then sauce. So strange to my mind but I wanna try it.

Done well it really works! Just more bread than you're used to ... a slice is more of a meal. Still a delicious experience. Bring your fork and knife.

Well preliminary results were inconclusive. Further research is needed. Further tasty science is required. 

It was nothing to shout about but I did learn I can make my own pizza dough. Next time I'll add in the 11 herbs and spices to the flour before I let it rise. Also I'll substitute the olive oil with melted butter methinks.

If anyone wants the recipe I used for the dough I'll gladly share it. I made a few modifications and it turned out more loose after rising than I expected but that made for a fluffy crust which I liked.

Tomorrow is taco salad day so maybe I'll slap together another deep dish in a few days. But I did learn why youd put the cheese in first. If the crust is doughy youd never know it. Cuz the cheese is gooey and they're the same texture. From now on my sauce stays on the bottom cheese on top.

I think it's because it being so thick means you have to cook it so long that the cheese would burn. Also, you can par-bake the crust to get some of the gooeyness out.

Tonight I made a sauce out of some ricotta and evaporated milk, plus a good dose of thyme, and poured it over a reheated burger. Took a long time at low heat but it was really good! Salad on the side.

Tonight was boring canned soup. (Kroger had a closeout on Campbell's style chunky sirloin burger style soup for $0.91)

Yesterday was 7 deli buffalo wings on markdown for $2.39

I simply made a buffalo sauce in the cast iron skillet with butter, chipotle Tabasco sauce, and a pinch of sugar. Reheated them in the sauce and had a helluva meal. +1 ranch dressing as a dipping sauce.

I grilled some pork chops the other night and used the leftovers to make pinto beans onions and pork in my pressure cooker. It really cuts the time down to cook dry beans.
