"Tandoori" grilled chicken

"Tandoori" grilled chicken by Chris Patil

While this dish isn't made in a traditional Indian clay oven, the yogurt marinade and spice blend can still yield a very authentic-tasting end result on a backyard grill.

Curry Lentil Soup

Curry Lentil Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a surprisingly light and tangy lentil soup. If you are used to thick and heavy lentil soups, this one will surprise you. It's very tasty and was a great complement to the pizza recipe I just put up. This is also adapted from a Greens restaurant recipe.

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style

Cauliflower & Potatoes ~ Indian style by Amos Miller

I have never been a really big fan of cauliflower, but I love potatoes and spices. This dish, known as 'Alu Ghobi', has long been a favorite vegetable side dish in my kitchen. It is simple, easy to make and very healthy for you. One seldom finds a cauliflower dish on the average restaurant menu. But you need not be a…

Butter Chicken - Chicken Makhani

Butter Chicken - Chicken Makhani by John Spottiswood

My kids love Chicken Makhani (Butter Chicken) and Chicken Tikka Masala whenever we go to an Indian buffet. So we tried replicating it at home. It's not a difficult dish to make once you have all the ingredients, and the results are delicious! It also gains flavor in your refrigerator over the next few days, so it's great for…

Yellow Split Peas with Vegetables (Dal Takari)

Yellow Split Peas with Vegetables (Dal Takari) by John Spottiswood

Wow, this is such a wonderful dish and so easy to cook! The keys to this dish are the yellow lentils, fried potatoes, and cumin seed. You can change out the other vegetables (spinach is a nice addition as it adds to the creaminess of the dish). Make sure you fry the cumin seed and potatoes over sufficiently high heat that the cumin…

Amazing Red Lentil and Tomato Soup

Amazing Red Lentil and Tomato Soup by John Spottiswood

I never thought I would have a red lentil soup that could match the Turkish red lentil soup that I have been served in Turkish restaurants and that I've learned to make. So I had low expectations for this Indian spiced version. It completely destroyed my expectations and was absolutely delicious. It was great last night, and I had…

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.…

Kheemah Kheemah Kheehah Chamelion by kathy gori

Ok, I'm sure I'm dating myself with that one. I remember when I was dancing around with one earring and big hair and leggings and I hadn't yet started cooking Indian food. But that's another tale for another time. Boy George aside... A got an email from a Facebook friend in the UK the other night. Evidently someone had gifted her and…

Bread In 20 Minutes, Or the Fast, The Delicious and The Gluten Free

Bread In 20 Minutes, Or the Fast, The Delicious and The Gluten Free by kathy gori

Every culture and cuisine has their own version of bread and I like all of them. Flat or tall, round, square oblong, leavened, or un, paper-thin or giant heavy slabs. I love the stuff. What I don't love is the mixing, kneading, waiting, rising,…

Fire Up The Grill, Toss the Slaw, I've Got The Fastest Salad Ever!!! Plus, Enter To Win Tropical Traditions Coconut. by kathy gori

There are days when no matter how much I love it, I just don't feel like cooking. When the lazy don't feel like cooking, the lazy go out to eat. That does happen sometimes but most of the time, since we try to watch what we eat and keep it on the…

Cool As A Cucumber Salad!

Cool As A Cucumber Salad! by kathy gori

Summer weather is definitely here which brings about all sorts of grilling type activities, cook outs, and pot luck get togethers. When the perfect light side dish is called for why not break away from the regular old cole slaw, potato salad nexus and make your side dish a Bollywood star. Here in Sonoma, the heart of California…

Grilled Tandoori Turkey Tenderloin

Grilled Tandoori Turkey Tenderloin by Bob Vincent

This is a fun rendition of Tandoori. It is adapted from a recipe in Cuisine At Home seven years ago. Since most people don't have a tandoor; a wood clay oven, similar results can be obtained by grilling the turkey on high heat. Don't be put off by the amount of spices used. Combined with the yogurt and sour cream for the marinade…
