New Milestones & Aarti’s Green Minty Curry Chicken

1st day kids

My girls started school few weeks ago and I have been meaning to write a post to share their experience.

My feelings and emotions have been exciting and stressful…

Exciting… because it’s a new year that celebrates a new milestone.

Stressful… because Ariana (my 5 yr old) broke her arm few days before starting kindergarten.

Luckily they both got great teachers and seem to be loving school.  Ariana made a great impression with her pink and purple arm cast and Anabelle has been her shield and playing the perfect role of a “big sister.”

It’s been pretty hectic at our house… Once we all get home, we are on a schedule hour by hour . Eat, homework, shower, bedtime, pack lunch, prep dinner, get online, try blogging… then repeat.

I have been quite obsessed with Indian cuisine lately thanks to Aarti Sequeria from Aaarti Paarti. I just want to try every recipe that airs on her show…  I guess because I have not had any fails with any of her posted recipes on Food Network thus far. In addition, I love trying the new called out spices and ingredients.  I feel like I am learning while cooking.  I am truly enjoying the experience.

I decided to make the minty curry chicken dish for my girls for a great start in the school year.  When I started prepping and cooking up the minty masala for the chicken, my kitchen was smelling so so good… so good, that my neighbor wanted to know what I was making. She was able to smell it from outside.  I told her I will bring her some food once I was done.

I did not have to make any changes on her recipe.  I thought it tasted perfect just the way it was… and so did my hubby, girls, and not to forget our beautiful neighbor.  My only note would be to make sure to season with salt and pepper and adjust seasoning as  you’re following each step of the recipe.  Also, if  you’re like me and don’t like too much fat on your meat, I suggest to clean out the fat before starting any cooking activity.

    I think Aarti is really influencing everyone towards Indian cuisine. I’ve definitely dabbled in it more because of her and I think I’ve seen lots of great Indian recipes ever since her show started!

    And I’m so sorry to hear about your daughter breaking her arm. That must be horrible, especially with her about to start class.
