Improvised Indian Dinner

Today we decided to make an Indian dinner from leftovers.  The curry in the back of the picture is some pulled pork that we cooked, shredded and froze last week.  That was thawed and mixed with the rest of a jar of Tikka Masala sauce and tomato paste.  This was served on a bed of spinach.

As a side dish we made chana with chick peas, green peppers, tomato and edamame.  For flavor we added olive oil and spices including garam masala, ground coriander, turmeric and cumin.

Roasted cauliflower tossed with curry powder and olive oil is also one of our favourite side dishes.

Finally, as an experiment, we made samosas with wonton wrappers.  For the filling we used some of the chick peas and edamame from the chana.  They were then baked in the oven for a few minutes.  They were a success.  The samosas were crunchy but not too tough, perfect.
