I love vegetarian meals, hell, I love almost everything except mayonnaise which fortunately doesn't figure in Indian cooking. One of the greatest compliments I can get at home is when my husband says.."I'm a carnivore, but damn this is really really good. I could just eat this stuff." Of course "this stuff" is vegetables. This is the time of year when all our local markets in Sonoma are flooded with all sorts of local produce. I know I'm lucky to live here, even though I complain about not being able to find bottle gourd and bitter melon like I used to in LA. There are plenty of Indian dishes I can make with what grows around here. I was absolutely swept away by the tiny baby potatoes, heirloom tomatoes and cauliflower that I found at the Farmers Market the other day and I couldn't wait to use them. Indian cuisine is filled with cauliflower and potato dishes. Most of them are very hearty and an entire meal can be built around them which is great for the pocketbook in these tight times. Years ago I used to make a cauliflower dish from Lord Krishnas' Cuisine which is my desert island Indian cookbook. Here's my adaptation of that recipe which incorporates all the goodies I'd tucked in my bag the other day at the market.
