Vegetarian Bean Curry
This is a basic recipe that you can play with for seasonings and ingredients. My first batch was good, but since then I've experimented with more or less spice, other veggies like mushrooms, and meat. It's different every time I make it now. Serve over basmati rice with naan bread.
This is a very popular recipe in India, liked by almost everyone. You may have to go to a nearby Asian Indian store to get the 'Pav Bhaji Masala' that is the special spice to bring the flavor (Masala means spice). Pav is actually the buns. Bhaji is the vegetables cooked with spice.
Pakistani Lentil Curry
This cheap and very easy Pakistani meal is usually eaten with Basmati rice, tossed salad, and hot pickles. It is relatively quick to make, and tastes even better the second day.
Chaat - Dahi Batata Puri
Chaat is a broad term that encompasses many different dishes. This recipe is made of yogurt and potatoes and other chaat sauces. You may need to make a trip to an Indian grocery store to stock up on spherical 'puris' (also called as pani-puri puris), 'sev', green chutney, and a sweet and sour chutney. I have tried here to give as many substitutions as possible, if you are unable to go to an Indian grocery store. However, you will definitely lose the authentic taste if you make substitutions. If you can find them, use black salt in place of the rock salt, spherical puris in place of the wheat crackers, and plain sev in place of the crushed potato chips.
This hummus is a family recipe passed down from many generations. Eat with warm pita bread.
Quick and Easy Refried Beans
