Indian Monday

The Menu:

  • Salad
  • Hummus
  • Pita Bread
  • Chicken with Indian Rub

The Recipes:

First up, I used this mix as a guide and created a simple Indian Spice Rub from the menagerie of spices pictured below.

Rubbed that on some chicken breasts and mixed up some hummus, following this easy recipe from the Savory Sweet Life blog. It was so quick that the only picture I got was the final product.

That turned out delicious, although maybe a tad too garlicky.

To scoop up the hummus, I decided to try making some homemade pita bread, following the instructions in Artisan Breads in Five Minutes a Day.

after about one minute -- the initial puffiness

five minutes later - whoa!

The pita bread turned out GREAT! It was the easiest bread I’ve made so far. I mean, yes, there’s some rolling pin action involved, but there’s no steam in this recipe and the baking time is 5-7 minutes. I actually went ahead and made a second load of pita bread so we’ll have some extras to enjoy with the leftover hummus over the next couple of days.

The final product was a well-balanced, but relatively easy and quick dinner.
