Indian Spiced Potato Patties, Thrifty Finds: Fabric

I got the recipe for the Spiced Potato Patties with Chickpeas from Sara’s blog: I Like to Cook. The meal was scrumptious and I also served the patties and chickpeas with some basmati rice. I was out of fresh cilantro so I decided to try the frozen cubes of cilantro I bought at Trader Joes. It worked out perfectly. I also used the amchoor powder that I bought at The Spice House. I had never heard of amchoor powder until I read about it on Sara’s blog. In case your wondering, amchoor powder is made from dried green mangoes. I’ve seen several recipes since then that use amchoor and I can’t wait to try them out too.

I remembered at the last second not to cover the patties entirely so you could see them in the picture (basmati rice, two potato patties, and then lots of chickpeas on top).

Yum!

It’s time for garage sale season. Yay! I picked up three fabric remnants for 40ยข total. It’s always fun to go to a sale where there is fabric and other crafty supplies.

Hope you’re having a great weekend. The weather is gorgeous here. There’s not even a cloud in sight. I hope this weather stays put ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mm, chickpeas. How I love thee.

    Your fabric looks nice, and what a great deal! I have a few drawers packed with great fabric that I never get around to making into anything. That’s why I’m not allowed to buy any more. But it’s fun to look at other people’s!

    Yes, you are right! We are on identical food wavelengths lately. Indian food always hits the spot… although, now that we’ve had our first weekend of good weather, I’m ready to move on to salads and light things and… BBQ!

    Looks wonderful Emmy, glad you liked it. Please let me know what else you use the amchoor for, I haven’t seen any more recipes that I like.

  • vegandiva April 24, 2007, 4:12 pm

    Thanks for the sweet comments everyone.

    Brian…can’t wait to see the next chard recipe you make ๐Ÿ™‚

    Pinknest…I’m thinking about using the butterfly fabric to make little coin purses. That fabric is sturdier than it looks. I’m not sure yet about the orange fabric in the middle and I’m thinking of using the funky fabric on the right to cover a journal ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sara, sure thing, I’ll be sure to post about any amchoor recipes I try ๐Ÿ™‚
