I realize that there are a few ‘curry’ dishes on this site, but I am looking for a raw version of baingan bharta. It’s a mashed eggplant dish usually with peas and some other good stuff. What about naan? Any recipes that would come close to naan? And lastly, something that could come close to a samosa.. or any indian food recipes you may have in the raw.
The reason I am asking is because On december 17th I fly to seattle to hang with my boyfriend for about a month. He has already been asking me if i’m going to “cheat” and eat cooked food with him. I really REALLY don’t want to. . but there’s a fantastic vegan indian restaurant and there’s a great jamaican vegan restaurant there as well, and I am already getting nervous about being weak and subjecting myself to the cooked food. I tell him it’s not ‘cheating’ on some random diet, but rather it’s me poisoning myself.. but he will not give in. He will do whatever it takes to see me eat cooked food!!!!! SO, i’d like to start experimenting now and hopefully bring a recipe for Bhangan Bharta [his favorite dish] and some naan [which i’d have to make ahead of time and just bring with me]. His family is from india, so I’ve got to do something!!!!!!!!! There’s no way he’ll go an entire month without indian food!
Alright, thanks in advance! Hopefully i can get some ideas here. I have TONS of indian spices from his grandparents.
