Yesterday my friend bought a beautiful cauliflower for me and I wanted to make 'Pav Bhaji', a spicy mashed vegetable curry that is eaten with buttered rolls. I was very excited to make it and I got some rolls and a nice large potato, green beans and peas for it. This morning I got to work. Everything was working out as I stirred away at my curry, marveling at the wonderful smells and delighting in how perfect it was looking. It was only until after I finished cooking and putting away the pav bhaji masala spice mixture when I noticed the bugs. Yes, there were BUGS crawling around in my spices! And no doubt dead ones floating around in the curry. I didn't even look, I just couldn't even think about eating it so I regretfully tipped the whole pot into the trash bin. I hate wasting food so I was a little upset. To make myself feel better I drove to Trader Joe's and picked up a ready made curry.
I got the Choley which was one of the only vegan ones they had. They had Pav Bhaji but it had butter in it. :(
But no matter, I enjoyed the Choley very very much. It was really spicy and perfect with my rolls that I grilled with Earth Balance margarine.
