I tried to make some tandoori chicken (for the first time) that didn’t come out of a jar. So I found this video and followed her recipe. We’re pretty pleased with how it came out. The pickled shallots are there to give it the “authentic feel” – and I love how they taste.
I also made Daal Makhni and Jeera Rice to go with the chicken. The veggies are Spring Onions with Trader Joe’s teeny-tiny potatoes and pepper mushroom.
I couldn’t help take a picture of the spice mise-en-place.
One of my favorite blogs IHeartOrganizing‘s monthly organizing challenge area for February is the Kitchen. So, in that spirit, I’m sharing what my spice cabinet looks like. I have a lot of spices and I love my lazy-susans. Most of them are Indian spices (that I buy in bulk from the Indian stores), but I have other stuff too: Mexican spice packets, Asian spices, Jerk and other spice rubs.
Bottom Shelf: I have two double tier lazy susans. I have small labels on my little Ikea Rajtan jars. I know what the spices are, so I don’t rely on the labels too much. But I am excited to update them. I love the Ikea jars, I’ve made spice boxes with these jars for at least three friends of mine.
The red boxes are just random boxes that I modge-podged some red paper on. Nothing really special here. The boxes make it easy to bring things down.
My spice box is in a drawer right below my cabinet.
My sweet mother in law got me this spice box for Christmas. I use it for my powdered spices. I got the teeny-tiny spoons from India.
