If you haven’t caught on by now, Indian food is one of my favorite cuisines on the planet. Its flavorful, warm, and just all around delicious! I love some good smashed potatoes or mashed potatoes, but I wanted to add some wonderful Indian flavors this week to meld well with my Murgh Mahkani (Indian Butter Chicken). This turned out fabulous and is the perfect side dish! I hope you enjoy this wonderful abundance of flavors!
