Lila, a friend from the office, was kind enough to give Stephanie and I a cooking lesson. Overall, the evening was a great success. We made aloo ghobi (cauliflower and potatoes), yellow dahl (lentils), and rotis. We did have one problem with the stove--about halfway through the food preparation flames started shooting out of one of the temperature knobs. Thankfully, we were able to turn the gas off before anything caught on fire.
I'm hoping to replicate the meal on my own in the near feature. Unfortunately, we didn't measure any of the spices so my version will either be too bland or too spicy.
Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment.
