Cholay (Curried Chickpeas)
This is a very flavorful recipe from North India, usually eaten with fried bread like bhatura or puri. I like to serve it over rice for a very filling meal. You can also try it as a quick snack over toasted bread. This recipe is much quicker to make if you use precooked canned beans, but I like to think that the authentic flavor comes from doing it the hard way!
Kerala Chicken Curry
I learned to cook food from Kerala, South India, from my in-laws. This is a fantastic main dish for a South Indian meal, which should always be served with several dishes - see the footnote for suggestions.
Curry in a Hurry
This red lentil curry in a hurry is made in a multi-functional pressure cooker and is perfect for a quick and hearty vegetarian meal.
Instant Pot® Chicken Biryani
Traditional chicken biryani made in an Instant Pot® cuts down on time but not flavor. The rice comes out fluffy and the chicken comes out tender. You can't ask for more. Serve with yogurt raita to complement the spices.
Butternut Squash Coconut Curry
This is a quick and delicious mild-to-medium spicy south Indian stew that is best served over hot white rice.
Reshmi Kebab (Silken Kebabs)
This is a traditional Muglai dish prepared in India. It gets its name from the succulence of the meat after prolonged marinating and light braising. Traditionally, chicken, beef or lamb meat is used, but prawns or scallops are good substitutes too for this smooth as silk kebabs. Serve with chatnis (dips made from coconut, cilantro and mint, usually found in Indian grocery stores) or tomato sauce.
Easy Chicken Madras Recipe
Takeaways: the great British institution. We love them. In fact, all of us, on average, have 2 takeaways a week. I love them, too. They're delicious, but should be an occasional treat. I love Indian food and I discovered Madras whilst at an Indian restaurant. It comes from a region known as Madras in southern India, which is now modern-day Chennai. This is a perfect swap - with fewer calories! Serve with a big spoonful of basmati rice, yogurt, and a fluffy naan.
Spicy Lentil Quinoa Curry
Lots of flavor packed in this Indian-spiced curry! This recipe is very adaptable and can be made to fit your preferences. You can also change up the veggies you use, alter the amount of spice, etc.
Indian Chicken Curry I
My friend's father, who is from India, showed me how to make this! It's delicious! Serve with hot cooked rice and veggies if desired; make sure that you do NOT eat the cloves, the flavor is too strong!
Delicious Chana Masala
A delicious dish of chickpeas, onions, and tomatoes! You will love this stuff! I suggest eating this with fresh fried naan.
Easy Indian Butter Chicken
This is a recipe I have perfected over the years and passed onto many others. The sauce is perfect when creamy and not too thick or too thin. The level of salt and spices can be suited to your taste. Garam and tandoori masala can be found in the ethnic aisle of your grocery store.
