This is a great dairy free side dish or main course!
The preparation of the lentils is the longest step: they need to sit for 1 hour after boiling. This is an EASY recipe! It freezes wonderfully and the taste improves over time.
Everytime I make these, they are everyone's favourite new treat! No one will be disappointed! I have requests for these all the time.
Both shells and filling can be made ahead and assembled when needed. The shells can be frozen for up to a month, then thawed at room temperature an hour before filling. The filling can be made up to two days before and refrigerated. Heat the filling gently, and serve immediately in the shells.

Indian Flat Bread
This is a delicious Indian recipe, that I got from the director of the movie "Bend it Like Beckam". At the end of the DVD, the director prepares this dish along with her mother, and aunt.
All spices should be adjusted to taste. We like our curry hot.
Whether or not this is a "real" chicken curry, it's tasty and smells fantastic when you walk in to the house at the end of the day. I serve it with brown rice.

Exotic, ethnic taste, low fat, high fiber. Can be made in crockpot!
A delicious and spicy addition to my repertoire of how to cook chicken or turkey breasts. Nutritional facts based on turkey, but works equally well with chicken.
Kidney Beans & Rice is a must
A delicious easy-to-make curry when you're short on time!
I love tandoori chicken, so the last time I had a whole chicken, I decided to just roast the WHOLE thing in a tandoori marinade. Note that the cayennne, hot peppers and black pepper are optional - use one or more as desired.
The recipe here uses a skinless chicken - the fat and calories will be MUCH higher if you leave the skin on.
The foil is essential if you don't want a dried-out chicken - remember that this is skinless chicken!
Each serving here is the traditional quarter chicken (breast and wing, or leg and thigh) - probably enough for 2 individual 3-oz servings, so keep that in mind when you look at the nutrition information. :)
You can use the same marinade and just coat 4 chicken breasts or 4 leg-and-thigh pieces instead, if you prefer a quicker, less messy preparation.
Broccoli with Indian spices.
Chick Peas in Indian sauce - goes very nicely with Puri or Kulcha
This soup is so hearty and satsifying, with unique flavors inspired by Keema (an Indian casserole). It makes 8 very hearty servings and is really delicious with naan bread.
If you prefer a vegetarian soup, simply omit the ground turkey.
This is how I make chai when I need something warm that makes me feel enveloped in comfort without the added calories of my former addiction: hot chocolate. It's spicier (in a warming way that is very soothing) and lighter in taste than any chai from a coffee shop. The method is also quite authentic. If you can, make sure to use fresh, whole cardamom pods, whole cloves, and freshly ground black pepper. You can also add a couple of drops of vanilla extract or use a very small amount of fresh ginger. The recipe is calculated with four teaspoons of sugar, but it is completely up to you.
This easy to make bread is great as a dessert topped with cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, or honey or as a part of a main dish like tacos.
This is my variation on a recipe in Kevin Mills' cookbook "Faster! I'm Starving!" It only takes about 20 minutes total to prepare and it's super yummy. The cauliflower is tender, but still firm -- not mushy like it gets when you boil or steam it. If you want to change the spice mix, just be sure you use other warm spices.
My favorite Indian dish, recipe has been tested , it tastes fantastic!!
