After experiencing the most phenomenal Indian food while in Rishikesh, I’ve been trying to recreate some of it here in Delhi. Indian food seems to have a common base of spices and has been quick to throw together. I also don’t end up with a bunch of pots and pans to clean; most recipes are one pan only, cooking veggies in a sauce mixture for a few minutes…then, done! Healthy and tasty. Here’s some of what I’ve been trying:
Bhindi – fantastic Indian dish made with ochre. Here’s the recipe I used: http://www.manjulaskitchen.com/2008/01/07/bhindi-masala-spicy-okra/
The beginning stage of aloo gobi. So good! Here’s the recipe: http://www.manjulaskitchen.com/2007/04/07/aloo-gobi/
Vegetable korma. I failed on this one as I didn’t read the entire recipe before starting. Who puts “diced, cooked, cooled potato – 2” in the ingredients list?? That’s not an ingredient, that’s a cooking step!
