Follow Me On…

Jan 312014

This is the first time ever since I moved here to Colorado, that our Denver Broncos will be fighting it out in the Superbowl. It took me a while to get warmed up to watching a game that is called football but where the foot part of the body is used only to kick or run. For the rest of the world football usually means soccer and I did arrive here from the rest of the world.

Having been a sports enthusiast most of my life, It only took a little while for me to get hooked to the game, but the food part of the football, I was always game for.

So you can imagine my excitement when the Broncos became the AFC Champions this year. It’s food and football on Sunday! We will be having a great time watching the game and munching on some goodies. Here are some spicy ideas for Superbowl recipes for you all to impress even the most ardent sports fans who will be there just for the game.

  1. Ansh,
    All of you appetizers sound so good. I especially like your dal and the salad with butternut squash, which I will make tonight for dinner if I can find some squash at Trader Joe’s today.

  2. Every thing looks so wonderful! If I had to choose just one, it’d be the chicken dish. But I want it all! Hope your team does well! And thanks for this.

  3. Goodness, I’d be hard pressed to make a selection from this lineup. I’m making short rib chili .. but I will be making that chicken dish.. since you said to. GO BRONCOS.

  4. I have heard so much about your chicken 65 dish that I will have to give it a try myself. I don’t think I’ve seen curry leaves for sale before– is that a specialty store purchase? Or can I use curry paste or something else?

    • Thank you, Holly. The girls are just kind 🙂

      You will find the curry leaves in Hmart or any Indian store (Thu in Indian stores is when you will find them fresh)

      You could make it without the curry leaves too. It will be slightly different in taste but good.

  5. You know me. Give me the first thing and I’m one happy girl. Well, if you give me a cocktail too. DO NOT MISS the cocktail I did yesterday; I just know you two would love it; I sure did…and so simple too. Or wait til you come here; I’ll make it for you!
