Floral Express

So as many of you have ascertained its been a while since my last post. And while I am not showcasing my daily outfit today, I decided to provide you with some snapshots of a few outfits I wore over the weekend. In particular, I decided I was going to embrace winter like it never existed and think of spring as a stones throw away. Hence this weekend’s outing were filled with springtime tops - i.e. showcasing flowers! As Eckhart Tolle said: “Humans feel such fascination for and affinity with flowers’ ethereal qualities. They have provided inspiration to countless artists, poets, and mystics.”

I must say I feel the same way. A bouquet of lilies, a single tulip, a rose in bloom can provide such jubilation and can be such a powerful awakening to the senses.

As wonderful as flowers may be, so are friends who provide similar comforts. I had the absolute pleasure of having good friends come over last night to make me the most amazing Chicken Curry possible. The recipe below has been modified slightly to include a few things that I also put in my chicken curry.

1 lb. boneless chicken, cut in to 1” cubes.
Mustard seed - one pinch
Fenugreek seed - one pinch
Cumin seed - one pinch
3-4 Curry leaves
1-2 whole, fresh green Chilli
½ tsp garam masala
½ tsp turmeric
½ tsp. red chilli powder
½ tsp. ginger paste
½ tsp. garlic paste
1 medium sized Onions diced
½ Cup Crushed tomatoes
1 tsp Tomato Paste
1 tbsp. chopped Cilantro ( I usually put more as I love the taste of fresh cilantro)
1 tbsp Coconut Oil
½ Cup water

(your welcome to add potatoes as well)
Heat 1 Tsp. of oil in a pan. Add diced onions; stir until they are golden in color. Add ginger and garlic, fry for ½ minute. Add tomatoes, water, garam masala, turmeric and chilli powder and cook for a minute or two.
1 Tsp. oil in a fry pan. Add mustard seed, fenugreek seed, cumin seed, then fry until the mustard seeds start popping. Add whole chills and stir until it is a darker color. Add curry leaves. When the leaves become soft, take them out. Add chicken and let simmer Mix all of the ingredients together with a ladle. Serve hot, garnished with cilantro
