Indian food

On Sunday, I cooked up my usual combo of Indian food that I know how to cook: chicken curry, paripa, and spinach thoran. As an added treat, the new HEB had banana leaves, which is the traditional way to serve this food, usually done at weddings.

When we went looking for the banana leaves at HEB on the Saturday before, there weren't any out where I had seen them before. I asked a guy in the produce department where they were, and he said that he would check. It turns out they had run out, and had only one box left. He gave me a bag from the box (which contained something like 4 full-size leaves) for free since they were starting to turn brown. I managed to salvage some good pieces out of them for dinner!
