Indian food is among my favorite. Its vibrant colors, rich aromas and complex flavors remind me somehow of Moroccan food, my favorite ever! This dish is very simple and quick to make and taste delicious. You can have it spicy or simply spiced ;-), as an entrée or as a side dish. Perfect on a cold winter night…
