Other recent culinary experiments included punjabi chola and spinach paratha. Both were delicious, and I'd recommend them if you feel like branching out with Indian cooking. If Indian cooking is new to you, I'd recommend starting with chana masala and chapati, because the recipes are more streamlined and closer to popular restaurant cuisine.

St. Patrick's Day Meal
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, J and I had shepherd's pie and Irish soda bread tonight (both Veganomicon recipes). They are both excellent. I don't know that shepherd's pie is traditionally Irish, but it involved mashed potatoes, so that was close enough for me. The Irish soda bread recipe from V-con is my favorite ever, even if it s not very authentic. The millet gives it a wonderful chew, and it has just the right sweet/salty balance.
