I'm not quite sure how this tradition started, but ever since I can remember, Academy Awards night has been coupled with an Indian Food Feast! And this year was no exception.
And, in case you're wondering, here's a shortlist of films I enjoyed the most this year:
Rise of the Planet of the Apes (totally NOT my kind of movie, but I ended up getting swept away in the story....it was surprisingly good!?)
Like Crazy ( a beautiful and heartbreaking love story of a couple in a long distance relationship)
And by the way, the food always ends up being better than the actual show:
Special thanks to the blog Live, Laugh, Rowe for her online HTML tutorial although I still need some help as I'm not quite sure how to center themand further, I didn't really want the lines separating the photos, I just wanted the photos. HTML is like speaking a foreign language.
Back to the food:
My husband made this amazing rhubard chutney marinated lambchops:
My mom made tandoori chicken. Yum!!!
And I tried my hand at making homemade naan for the first time:
I burned the first batch pretty badly, but crop number two came out soft and delicious!
