Smashed Indian Spiced Baby Potato Medley

This smashed Indian spiced potato dish is a super easy, packed with flavor, southern Indian dish. It does not take many ingredients. Truth to be told, while I recently obsess over curry leaves and they do add to the dish that distinct Indian flavor, I usually do not have fresh curry leaves just idly laying around in the house. Shops also don't carry curry leaves consistently, so more often than not, I leave them out of the dish. There are many slight variations to this dish. Some add 1-2 dried red chile and let them sizzle in oil, together with the seeds. I don't. Every slight variation changes the flavor profile of this dish which makes this dish all the more interesting. I guess that is why cooking isn't a science but an art.

Masala Chai Ice Cream

I never developed a taste for Indian masala chai while growing up. On those rare occasions, when my mom had a moment, relishing a long drawn sip of freshly brewed masala chai, I would watch her, puzzled.
