Thanks to everyone who recommended different dishes that incorporate phyllo dough and curry. I ended up creating a samosa-like dish with onion, ground turkey and a grated potato flavored with curry and ginger inside phyllo triangles. I paired it with some watermelon, sauteed zucchini and onion and a salad (basic greens with garbanzo beans, artichoke hearts, tomato, celery and green peppers). Oh, and milk. :)
My next recipe challenge is finding a tasty vegetarian meal that won’t break the bank or leave me hungry in two hours. Any suggestions? Find mine after the jump.
I tested this recipe for Yellow Velvet Lentil Soup with Cumin and Dried Plums by chef Padma Lakshmi a few months ago. It’s delicious, but I think I didn’t cook the lentils quite long enough because the texture was nothing like velvet and bit more like crunchy peanut butter. Despite that, it was really quite good. The prunes add a bit of unexpected sweetness. If you aren’t cooking for a brood, I’d recommend halving the recipe or freezing a bit for later.
