A few days ago, as I was skimming through some old posts on this blog, portions of a screed I posted on Christmas Day last year caught my attention. I don’t know how I could have let the ideas I proffered pass by without plans to execute them, but somehow I did. Having come across them, though, I now must plan to transform the ideas into reality.
I wrote about Mexican-Indian fusion foods, suggesting, among others, the following possibilities:
- lamb vindaloo tamales;
- bhindi masala burritos;
- picadillo samosas;
- arroz con gobhi Manchurian; and
- baigan guisada.
I will add to my to-do list the creation of recipes for these dishes. I suspect I can come up with recipes that will successfully combine the two cuisines, melding cultures into dishes suitable for anyone with good taste and a sense of adventure. Then, after creating the recipes, I will start making them. By this time next year, I hope to be able to write a summary review of all these dishes.
Hmm, Interesting for sure. I say add, John! You’re on to something that could really be delicious! 😉
