Padma Lakshmi's known these days for her role as the host of Bravo's popular Top Chef series. But she's a skilled chef, too, and in this episode of Savvy, she talks about when to use which Indian spice — no matter what kind of food you're making — and how to tell them apart. Lakshmi, who's currently taking the Veg of Allegiance pledge with Morningstar Farms, also uses the spices to cook a vegetable-focused dish, curried Chinese long beans with black-eyed peas.
