As many of you know. I’m not a very good cook. When I do attempt to cook, most of the time it works out. But I’m just not knowledgable enough in cooking to whip something together (and for one person and for cheap). So recently I’ve been sticking to frozen meals and hotdogs.
But I’ve finally had enough.
I want to be a fancy cook.
I reached out to my closest confidants (Facebook) to get some recipe ideas that would be easy, healthy, and cheap. A tall order indeed. I got some great responses though!
So tonight, I finally finished up my frozen meals and I bought some fresh ingredients. My first attempt was one of the many great suggestions from my brother, a Chana Masala. This one scared me a bit because it contains a lot of ingredients I hadn’t used before. But Ryan gave me detailed instructions to help me out so I was confident.
For the first time ever I worked with Curry Powder.
I also peeled and grated ginger! I had to look up what exactly was grating but it worked well! I love the smell of ginger! Who knew?
And then I put it all together and made a beautiful meal! Although it doesn’t look pretty, it is delicious!
One issue- the basmati rice. Who knew all rice wasn’t instant? Oh well- so as I write this I’m watching my rice cook.
A successful culinary adventure though! I’ll keep you posted as I attempt to increase my skill. Thanks for this one Ryan!
If you have a recipe that could help me out, let me know! All are appreciated!!
