It’s getting to be that time of year again!  I love when the weather changes gets a cooler at night and a touch frosty in the morning, but still warm during the day.  If we are lucky, we get that through October.  Perfect season to start making soups and stews again.  Here is my take […]

Naan: Indian Flat Bread

September 3, 2011

0

Soft, chewy, flavorful. Perfect for sopping up curries and other flavorful sauces. Not something to whip up if you need to eat in 30 minutes. But so worth it if you have the time. This is an unusual bread for many reasons.  First, is rises very slowly over a long period of time.  Second, you […]

Chicken Tikka is a great way to enjoy Indian Food on the grill, so it is a perfect summer dish.  This recipe is also a great way to introduce Indian food to your family, since I have not yet encountered anyone who didn’t like it.  How can you go wrong with chicken marinated in yogurt […]

We have to admit that we occasionally crave pizza on Friday nights.  Even though our kids are usually going a hundred different directions, we are sometimes all home on Friday nights.  And when we are, we like to party a bit by eating pizza and watching a movie together.   Since we started making pizza at […]

This is a great summer recipe.  It call all be cooked on the stove, and it uses fresh garden produce.  You can pair it with a meat curry or tandoori meats.   I love the textures in this dish: the creamy potatoes, tender beans, and crunch of all the seeds is a treat for the […]

I absolutely adore Indian food. Unfortunately, the closest Indian Restaurant to us is a good 90 minute drive.  Our favorite restaurant is nearly four hours away. So, we had to figure you how to make Indian at home. Obtaining the spices and ingredients for a lot of my recipes can be tricky.  When PapaChef is […]

Tomatoes are on!  Finally!  I got this idea from my friend Blondie, and have found that the idea is quite adaptable.  It makes a delicious sauce.  This is what you do: Spray large baking dishes or roasting pans with Pam.  Blondie uses disposable roasting pans–less mess! Drizzle in a bit of extra-virgin olive oil.  Start […]
