I am always on the lookout for Indian curries I can do with veggies that will taste great and fill me up. Something about the combination of all those spices and caramelized onions really tellS your stomach all is well. I don’t often get up to Bentonville, the Northwest Arkansas mecca of Indian food, so I have to be creative about filling my Indian food needs. By the way, if anyone knows someone with social media and Indian food skills, I would love to have their contact info!

This has been one of the coldest winters I can remember. It was 3 degrees when I drove to work yesterday and only 4 degrees when I drove up to Bentonville for a bloggers networking meeting. It was worth the drive. I got some great tips from experienced food bloggers. Thanks Stephanie and Cristina!

Back to the potatoes. Potatoes are a great vegetable to do curry with because they are neutral in flavor and will take on whatever you give them. Lots of potato curry recipes with onions as the base will tell you to cook the onions for a few minutes, but take heed…if you have the patience to caramelize them down for at least 20 minutes, you will love the result.
