Rosie Will Be Making Aartie's Meal From The Next Food Network Star.

God help me. I watch The Next Food Network Star. There. I admitted it. On a recent episode, Aarti made a dish the judges loved. In spite of that, I decided to make it myself because it sounded intriguing and basically good to me. The recipe is for Ground Lamb Kofto Kebabs with Pomegranate Glaze, Bengali Spiced Potatoes, and Persian Cucumber Raita. Here's Aartie's recipe.
And here's Aartie's dish from a pic I snagged off the Food Network site:
Please stick around, since I'll be offering you each element in this dish. Here's a sneak peak of what's to come: (Photos and phood by Rosie.)
Here are my lamb kabobs, languishing in a sensuous pool of pomegranate molasses, hash browns exuding the warmth of Rosie's 10-Spice Powder, and the cool, palate-cleansing, minty cucumber raita.
Grilled lamb kabobs in a pomegranate reduction.
The spicy warmth of the hash browns and the refreshing coolness of the raita were a nice pairing.
This is the kind of meal I've been having a hankering for - something with spices and flavors I don't ordinarily use and someone to tell me how to use them. And for that, I thank Aarti. For that matter, here's my 2 cents: I hope she wins it. I want different food and she offers different. I hope you enjoy.
