We are supposed to be making Instant Pot Shrimp Biryani tonight but we cannot find curry leaves. Plus buying U-20 shrimp costs about $25.00 for a frozen pack. So while we are out at the store we have to change gears and find something else to prepare.
What we decide on after a good bit of dithering are chicken thighs on the grill with BBQ sauce, smashed new potatoes with olive oil and lemon thyme, and an extension of our leftover cole slaw. After looking at the quantity and prices of cabbage I decide to buy eight Brussels sprouts and shred them on my mandoline. Sprouts and cabbage are in the same family and the result is that the cole slaw is improved by the addition of the hardier Brussels sprouts.
