October 17, 2012 by Leanne Vogel March 29, 2017India has been on my brain for the past few weeks. It feels like ages since I got on that plane and headed to Mumbai earlier this year. The waterfalls, the beach, the ashram… I returned home with a strong sense of self, a free soul and a happy heart. Maybe this yearning has been sparked by all the yoga I’ve been doing, the Indian food I’ve started to eat again, or the calm I’ve been injecting into my life. Either way, my heart longs to go back. With each day that passes, I get more rooted in Montreal and more interested in going back to India a second time. In fact, I spent most of yesterday evening planning out a second, more extensive, trip for the new year. A girl can dream, right? Heck… with all of the crazy things that have happened in our lives this year I’ve learned to believe that anything is possible if you will it to be so. Until I figure out how to get myself there, I’ll just continue to eat my weight in Indian food, practice yoga, and stay true to myself. Oh yes, and go on grand adventures in this new city of ours! We checked out Montreal’s underground city a couple of days ago and boy, was it something. The underground city is a collection of malls all connected underground. Crazy right? I hadn’t even known this place existed until a friend told me about it. Kevin and I spent 4 hours trying to visit each and every mall, barely stopping for anything, and we still couldn’t see it all. That’s insane. What’s even more insane is how much I love this curry recipe. It was one of the dishes served at the potluck we attended for Thanksgiving and the culprit to my over-stuffed Thanksgiving belly. I just couldn’t get enough of it! When I asked for the recipe, Dominique, my cousin’s, wife’s, best friend (try saying that five times), told me that there were sweet potato cubes, fennel, fresh coriander leaves, fresh mint or Italian parsley leaves but didn’t have the recipe. So, I tested out a couple of variations, adding chickpeas, onion, cranberries, and voila, a new and improved version was born. Oh I do so much enjoy recreating dishes… and then gobbling them up!
