Easy Garam Masala
This is a quick Garam Masala (Indian spice) mix. Garam Masala is better when made with whole spices that have been roasted and ground, but this is a quick and easy substitute that's pretty good.
Keema Aloo (Ground Beef and Potatoes)
If you want to try something a little different, I guarantee you will love this meal. It is by far my favorite Indian recipe. Inspired by my mom, who still makes this for me to this day.
Roti Canai/Paratha (Indian Pancake)
Breakfast, lunch, tea time, and dinner - this popular Indian pancake is available for a meal or snack. As kids we ate it sprinkled with sugar. It's typically served with curry and sambal if you choose to spice it up.
Black Chana with Potato
Classic Indian Kala Chana recipe. A bit tart, but very wholesome. Great source of protein for a vegans. Can be served with either chapati/roti or basmati rice.
Tomato Cucumber Kachumbar
Kachumbar is an Indian-style salad that is served on top of curry. Fresh herbs and lemon add a tangy crunch that lightens even the most intense gravies.
Red Split Lentils (Masoor Dal)
Indian-inspired lentils the whole family will love and babies, too. Once the dal and rice are at the desired consistency, it's ready to eat or freeze. Make sure mixture is completely cool before freezing. I use freezer ice trays and small individual glass bowls with lids.
Indian coconut chutney to be served with dosa and idli (steamed rice and lentil cakes).
This recipe has been with me for over 30 years; it was given to me by a Kashmiri guy I shared a house with when I was 17. This is his mum's family recipe. Kashmir's cuisine combines the area's fruits and nuts with the ingredients and the cooking style of the Moghuls. This rich stew makes a marvelous main dish. Serve it with hot steamed rice or crusty breads. This is lovely!
Indian Chicken Curry (Murgh Kari)
Chicken breasts simmer in a curry sauce with yogurt, tomatoes, onion, garlic, and ginger in this spicy Indian dish.
Delicious Chana Masala
A delicious dish of chickpeas, onions, and tomatoes! You will love this stuff! I suggest eating this with fresh fried naan.
