“I came up with this recipe because mom likes "soup food", and I get bored with it. Opened the cupboard and fridge and thought blue cheese and nutmeg sounded like they might work together. It sounds weird, but it tastes really good! The blue cheese adds just a little bit of tanginess to contrast with the sweetness from the nutmeg and garam masla (I used a store bought blend from McCormick - how authentic, who knows, but it tastes good!). I also used a cast iron skillet, which browns the meat very well.”
