Tired of blah, bland, boring dinners? Hang on to your hats, this Roasted Indian Fish and Creamy Curried Cauliflower is going to have your head spinning. (In a good way.)
Diversity is beautiful.
What if all the luminous autumn leaves were one color, or every food tasted the same?
What if we all had to drive the same exact car or live in the same cookie-cutter house filled with an identical allotment of furnishing?
What if we all had the same color skin, hair, smile, personality, passion? Wouldn’t life be boring?
It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut of mindless perceptions and attitudes.
If you listen carefully throughout your day, you’ll notice you are unconsciously bombarded with an onslaught of thoughtless statements:
“Those people are ________.”
“That’s impossible. No one can ________.”
“Why would anyone want to _______?”
“________ is disgusting, I can’t believe anyone would eat that.”
“He’s too ________. I could never be friends with that kind of person.”
“Life would be so much simpler if everyone would just…” (Do what I do. Think what I think. Play by my rules.)
And he goes through life, his mouth open, and his mind closed. ~ Oscar Wilde
My prayer is to be a person who will throw out judgement and stay open-hearted.
Not in a way that disables me from ever taking a stand if the moment arises, yet in a way that allows me to love and experience life to my greatest capacity, free from mindsets that would hold me back.
I try to walk into every situation as a student of life, always learning, never the master. For me, humility unlocks the beauty of diversity.
Baby steps… We can start with what we put in our mouths.
If you are in a rut of: spaghetti, baked chicken, meatloaf, tacos and pizza over and over, why not throw a little Indian flair into the mix?
Indian cuisine is one of those areas where people are often closed-minded. Sadly, they ate at a second-rate Indian lunch buffet years ago, and have crossed it off the list forever.
If you fall into this category, I ask you to reconsider. 1.2 billion people can’t all be wrong. *wink*
This Roasted Indian Fish and Creamy Curried Cauliflower is a diverse array of flavor, texture, and color.
The Indian spiced fish is dusted with coarsely ground Garam Masala and roasted under high heat for just a few minutes. I used Swai fillets because they are inexpensive, eco-freindly and very mild in flavor.
The creamy curried cauliflower is simmered with Madras curry powder, apricot preserve. and cream. It’s a silky, sweet and spicy bed for the roasted Indian fish, that also doubles as a sauce.
This vibrant combination of Indian flavors will surely open your mind to new possibilities!
