An Indian-spiced lunch

An Indian-spiced lunch

Indian spices are hands down some of my favorite flavors. Spicy, fragrant and oh so delicious. My husband isn't the biggest fan of curry, but I'm slowly getting him to appreciate the complex flavor.

I also love serving this in a pita, because you can stuff this sandwich super full and not worry about it falling out.
