verbicide: (shiny!!)
This year, I want to cook more Pakistani food. It's bizarrely intimidating, but I've been trying more and more dishes lately. There are probably a handful of things I grew up with that are my favorites, and I've been making my way through a mental list of things I'd like to try or improve.

For some reason, my murgh cholay (chicken with chickpeas) has always sucked. The curry would taste fine, but the meat was sort of bland. So I talked to some aunts, thought about my mistakes, and I finally made a satisfactory version for lunch today. So very exciting! I didn't have any cilantro to finish the dish off, but that was okay! What's funny is that my brothers and I would whine to my mom for boneless chicken because we didn't like dealing with bones, but as a cook now, I wouldn't consider giving up the extra flavor that the bones adds!
