It's been a while since I last tried a new recipe. Or I guess it's more accurate to say that it has been a while since I last blogged about me trying a new recipe. In fact, May 16th was my last "new recipe" post. :::gasp:::
I really have to get a move on this if I want to complete my goal of trying 10 new recipes in 2013. I have a couple more months yet but I can't take a 3 month hiatus if I want to get this done.
Anyways, back to today's recipe. Last week, I was trying to make meals using ingredients I had around the house instead of buying a whole whack of groceries. So when I came across this recipe for Lentil and Spinach Curry, I knew I had to give it a shot.
Except for my camera isn't as nice as hers. And my lighting isn't as nice as hers. And my recipe didn't look as nice as hers. Oh well.
I tried to take step by step photos of the process but they just look kind of gross, so I'm not going to post them.
And the taste wasn't as amazing as I had expected. But once again, I blame that on my old curry powder. I've heard that curry powder doesn't have a long shelf life and I'm pretty sure mine has been on the shelf for a little too long.
I want to give it another shot and use fresh curry powder and not overcook it by 30 minutes. Then I will properly judge it. Because I think all recipes (unless they are completely inedible) should be tried at least twice. That way, the second time around, you can make any small changes you think would make it better.
