Not feeling particularly wordy today. This is what happened for lunch:

Mustard oil, cumin seeds, crushed cardamom seeds, crushed coriander seeds, stick cinnamon, cloves, raw cashews, raw peanuts.

    1. Thank you. This is a combination of flavors I remember from my childhood. I love it when each bite of food is a slightly different flavor experience, which is why I sometimes like to use whole spices, some of which might be picked out as one runs across them (cinnamon sticks, curry leaves, cardamom pods). I used crushed cardamom seeds in this instance, but often include the entire pod. I don’t mind biting into a cardamom pod by accident but Faye finds it too much of a surprise. She always asks how many are in the dish so she knows when there is no more need for concern.
