These kale kofta balls came out great and really satisfied our craving for a hearty Indian vegetarian feast.

The last time I visited new york, I was lucky enough to literally stumble into a blogger event at an Indian restaurant near Madison Square Park called Junoon. Because I know the secret blogger handshake, I was able to sit at the bar tasting many of their creative cocktails and small bite appetizers.

When I was attending a party last weekend and needed an alternative app that was also vegetarian, this was the first thing that came to mind.
