Kerala, India is a magical place that has been bringing flavor and color to the rest of the world for centuries. A state of the country of India since 1956, Kerala sits on the Western Coastline of India, near the tip of the Indian Peninsula, and facing the Arabian Sea. Often called the “Land of Spices,” Kerala was one of the major spice shipping hubs for the globe as early as 3000 B.C. and is still a major grower and exporter of spices and foods to this day. In addition to the flavorful and exotic spices that flow from Kerala, tea-growing is also a major industry, with some of the most unique tea flavors in the world being grown on the inland steppes. Though the agricultural tourism is a major draw, the majority of visitors are more-enthralled with the backwaters, Beaches, and stunningly-green tropical forests.

When I had my oven on yesterday, I threw in a couple of aubergines to roast then today I decided what to do with them. Thanks to Amazon, I now have a wonderful great big new pot of tahini in my cupboard – LOVE IT – so I started to play..

A spoon full of golden beauty 😍

Anyway, I digress, so I put the mashed up aubergines flesh into a little blender, added lemon juice and two huge spoonfuls of tahini, then I opened up my magic cupboard full of spices and pondered..I threw in some ground cumin, then some ground coriander, paprika and garlic powder and whizzed it all up..

And it worked very nicely!

I’m definitely getting bolder with my spices and by reading lots of recipes in books and on all of the wonderful blogs on here, I am starting to understand what combinations work well…

Asian Chicken Wraps


lambskinny:

Looks so good!

Every time I make the drive between Virginia and Michigan, I like to pack some wraps and snacks in a little cooler. That way, I only have to stop for gas and I eat well so I don’t feel cruddy from fast food when I get to where I’m going. I try to do something different each time, I ran a search and found a recipe for these on Good Life Eats.

I mentioned, made & ate these wraps almost three whole weeks ago! Sorry for the delay – I was in Europe the last two weeks and, thanks to a pre-trip passport fiasco, didn’t get the chance to get it posted before I left. Woops!

Anyhow, late or not, these wraps are yummy! They pack great for a road trip or would make a perfect packed lunch. It sounds like a lot of ingredients, but comes together really…
