Did you know that I have a facebook page for the blog? There you'll find links to other blogs I follow, recipes that I'm trying, as well as updates on local foods and trends. Check if out if you haven't already!
Veena's Market is run by a friend of mine. Veena is as lovely in personality as she is in her photo on the website. Last year when she was starting her business she tested a few recipes on me and they were so yummy. I've been meaning to try her dosa but haven't gotten around to it yet.
For Christmas I bought several packets of Veena's Sassy Saag, pictured below, and put them into my family members' stockings. Hubbie got one, which I made for him last night with chicken and yogurt.
I never make Indian food because I'm just not familiar with the spices and techniques used. This saag was simple to make, healthy, and provided enough for leftovers at work the next day. Just be careful not to burn the cumin seeds in the first step. G-man and I both loved it and I want to share it with you.
Having made this just last night I can attest to the brilliant green in the above pic from her website. It really is that bright emerald color! I added yogurt to ours to stretch the sauce a bit and mine served 4, not the 2 listed on the package. I served it on a bed of rice and it was a good and fast Tuesday night meal.
Leave a comment on this post by 7:00 p.m. PST on Saturday, January 8. I'll randomly select a comment and send out the package of spices and instructions to a lucky winner. One entry per person.
If you don't win, be sure to get yourself a packet (or 5) of these super spices. Shipping is free and at $2.99 you really can't go wrong.
DISCLAIMER: Veena is a friend of mine but does not know that I'm running this contest, that I am writing anything about her, or that I ate the saag last night. All she knows is that I bought a handful of the packets last month and that my check cleared.
The randomizer at random.org selected "2" as the winner, so RSM, that's you! Congratulations. Everyone else, go get some of this Sassy Saag. It's worthy.
