Black Vinegar

Until recently, I didn't know black vinegar existed, and I can't even remember where I heard about it. In addition to the vinegar itself, there's some extra flavors. It tastes a little like Worcestershire sauce, and a little like balsamic vinegar. In it's own words "western seasoning theories ... meet with Chinese flavors."

Bourbon Chicken

This is a bourbon chicken along the lines of what you get in mall and airport food courts. It actually a pretty simple dish, as it comes down to basically chicken and sauce.

Chicken Saag with Corn Roti

 I've been getting so much food through my CSA that I've been giving some of it away every week. Some mustard greens ended up making it to my friend Ricky who used it to make chicken saag, an Indian dish made with pureed spinach or mustard greens. The next week I got more mustard greens, and decided to make some myself. Saag can be plain or made with meat, chickpeas or paneer (cheese).
