|Marlon Brando and Bell Peppers

Marlon Brando was hot back in the day. You’d never guess that if you’d seen The Godfather, but wow. He had that electricity that makes every little move he makes fascinating. Wish I had that. Anyway I watched an old movie of his while I cooked this up last night, an Indian spiced pilaf with bell peppers. Once I saw the recipe, I hopped on it, because I actually had bell peppers left over from Vin’s fajitas that he never made. It’s also got garam masala. And if you know Vin, you know he’s a sucker for "grandma masala".
Here’s where I screwed up. When I substituted one white onion for the red onion that it called for. Bad. Bad. Never again. So when I made it again, cause Vin was bitching, I had to use meat. It looks pretty, anyway. Unfortunately, I’m almost out of my garam masala and I don’t remember where I got that version from. Anyone recommend a favorite garam masala blend? Not too cinnamony, please.

RECIPE HERE If you don’t have red onion, like I didn’t, use HALF of the white onion.
