My Yarn Smells of Mothballs

Well, well, well. Here is a supper for you. It is a sort of curry thing I winged. It was pretty okay, the spicing didn't go with the potato I didn't think, and the spicing itself was sort of ?bitter? somehow? Yah wow, I'm really selling you on this one, huh? But it was filling, hot and pretty good.

Spinach, Potato and Pea Curry

1 pkg frozen spinach
9 small potatoes
1 C frozen peas
1 T oil
1/2 onion, diced small
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T (heaping) garam masala
1 T brown sugar
1 T 'chicken' broth powder
1 t salt
2 T chickpea flour + 1/4 C water
2 C water

Nuke your spinach in a microwave safe dish for 5m, leave it in there to thaw.
Boil your potatoes until they are done, drain and let cool.
Fry up your onion and garlic, add garam masala, sugar, broth powder, salt and mix well.
Add water, mix well, add spinach, mix well.
Stir chickpea flour together with water and pour this in, mixing well.
Crank up heat and bring to boil.
Cut up your cooled potatoes and add them.
Add your peas, lower heat and simmer until thick.
Serve over rice.

Still reading Eragon, Erawhatever. Here's the beef; the bad guys are Shades? His taciturn, reticent, mysterious, convenient, older, wiser person that helps him has !really! no similarities to Strider. I actually heaved a sigh of relief when the author came up with an original thought?
Maybe I am just LOTR obsessed and can't see the forest for the trees. I will try and read this with fresh eyes. It has a dragon. That's cool. It's totally different. Even though it had a map in the front of the book.

No knitting. My yarn smells of mothballs.
