Savory Rice with Lentil Curry - Khichuri

Savory Rice with Lentil Curry - Khichuri by John Spottiswood

We made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious! This has everything I love about Indian food. The flavors are bold and vibrant but blend so well together, the warmth and texture are like comfort food, and the dish is quite healthy. If you like split pea or lentil soup, you should definitely give this a try some night instead.…

Indian Stuffed Okra (Bhindi Masala)

Indian Stuffed Okra (Bhindi Masala) by Mihir Shah

The reason most folks don't have Okra in their first string of recipes is they don't know the right spices to use. Indian spiced okra dishes are gems. Your kids won't like it, but you and your friends will. This dish can be served as a side to Indian meats, can also be used as a side to bbq (cajun bbq), or can be served as a main…

Channa Masala

Channa Masala by John Spottiswood

This is one of my favorite Indian vegetarian dishes. I always load up on a few helpings when I'm at the buffet! Chick-peas are great for you, and filling too. This fabulous recipe is adapted from a classic by Madhur Jaffrey. I made it a bit more healthy. Use more butter and less oil if you want a richer flavor and don't care…

Green Beans With Someting Extra! Plus A Giveaway!

Green Beans With Someting Extra! Plus A Giveaway! by kathy gori

I never was a big green bean fan growing up. Mainly because the beans I was usually served weren't green at all but rather grey and flabby, the 90 pound weaklings of beans. They didn't look like they were full of vitamins and raring to go to work on my system but rather as though they'd spent their short bean life couch-surfing and…

Meatless Monday, Take The Corn Off The Cob!

Meatless Monday, Take The Corn Off The Cob! by kathy gori

What should greet us this morning as we returned from our early morning coffee run to the Basque Boulangerie but a large turkey vulture sitting on the branch of a tree looking down at our house. "Whoa!" I thought. What a kickoff to Meatless Monday. Whatever that big bird was looking for, he was not going to find it in my kitchen…

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken) by JULIE MCMAHON

This recipe is delicious! It tends to be on the spicy side so if you would like to make it more mild hold off a bit on the chili powder and cayenne pepper. It is great with rice and a side of a veggie.

How Dry I Am

How Dry I Am by kathy gori

Yesterday I posted a recipe that is considered a "wet" Vegetarian dish. So if the cauliflower is considered wet than what might you ask is "dry"? Dry is anything that has less of a liquid sauce, more of a thick sauce that clings to the vegetables, or many times spices and seasonings that roast onto them. I still had eggplants in the…

Beet It!

Beet It! by kathy gori

Yesterday I was over the moon that I'd found a new South Asian Market here in Sonoma county. As I think I'd mentioned before we have only ONE Indian market in the entire county and they're not always the best stocked. It's the thing I do miss about Los Angeles. Ready access to good ethnic grocers. I needed to go over to Santa Rosa…
