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…

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.

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

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…

Got Carrot Salad? Got 20 Minutes? by kathy gori

I love stuff that's fast and easy. These are the recipes that are lifesavers especially when "stuff" happens, for lack of a better word. Dishes that are versatile, and inexpensive to prepare and can be prepared ahead of time are even better. I was looking for that sort of thing this week, after the whole Film Festival craziness and…

Creamy Cauliflower And Lakers Magic!

Creamy Cauliflower And Lakers Magic! by kathy gori

One thing I love about fixing a tandoori chicken lunch is the simplicity. Once the chicken has been marinated, nothing goes better with this dish than a bread some pickled cucumbers and one veg. The most likely vegetable to find on my tandoori table is cauliflower. Especially when I can get a beautiful organic one for 99 cents!…

World Cup Cabbage. Quick, Easy and Comforting When You Don't Make The Late Goal. by kathy gori

I have to be honest here. I've never watched a soccer game. Basketball has always been my sport. The only reason that I've never really watched soccer is because like most citizens of the US of A, the TV machine has never told me to. But all of a…

Almost everybody loves desserts, however not everybody loves what desserts do to them. I'm not talking here about the amazing expanding waistline, larger pants size problem.

Ever since Paula Wolfert gave me a Clay Coyote Flameware skillet the other day, I've been jonesing to use it. However, at the same time I got the skillet, I also got all inspired to fix some meatless Indian raw salads that I'd learned of from a cookbook she'd also given me. I kept staring at the beautiful Flameware skillet up on the…
