Spice Bazaar

Spices are woven into the fabric of Indian food and culture, so what better avenue is there to explore as we start this journey with our new chef, Madhur Jaffrey?  Be it a spice new and exotic to you or one that is familiar and comfortable, let's dive head first into the overflowing bags and bowls of spices proudly displayed at any Spice Bazaar.

And don't let the term spice fool you - spice need not be fiery hot (though it can be, should you choose), there is a vast range of flavors just waiting to explode on your palate.  So grab Madhur Jaffrey by the hand and bring something inspired by a Spice Bazaar to the table this week.  We can't wait to see what you make!
Make and post your From the Earth post by Sunday, October 14th. Don't forget to link your post of the week's with Mr. Linky below, so we can all enjoy your fabulous creation! Remember to leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

If you missed the Welcome Madhur Jaffrey theme last week, be sure to head on over and see all of the delicious dishes everyone brought!  Don't forget, we're cooking through the recipes of Madhur Jaffrey right if you've linked up, be sure that you've used/adapted one of her recipes for your post!

I urge everyone to try MJ's delicious chicken bits. They are incredible, and easy, and full of flavor! I can definitely see myself making them a lot.

Loving MJ. All of my recipes so far have been incredible.

I apparently had some problems this week, but continue on honestly and undaunted! Well...maybe a teensy bit daunted. Regardless of the outcome of my dish, I learned about garam masala this week. That's a new spice blend for me! I'm looking forward to learning about lentils in the coming week!!

Just got my dish posted, spicy Gobi Aloo, cauliflower and potatoes. Very yummy.
