    Indian³

    This started as a craving for vindaloo. I decided to add a chicken and a beef dish also. We spent nearly two days toasting and grinding spices, marinating the meats, prepping veggies and making the flatbread.

    Was all this work worth it?

    After all, this was my birthday meal!

    Chicken Tikka

    Chicken Tikka

    The word Tikka means bits, piecces or chunks. Chicken Tikka is an easy-to-cook dish in which chicken chunks are marinated in special spices and then grilled on skewers.
    http://indianfood.about.com/od/chick...ickentikka.htm

    1 cup fresh yoghurt (should not be sour)
    1 cup finely chopped fresh coriander leaves
    2 tbsps ginger paste
    3 tbsps garlic paste
    3-4 tbsps garam masala
    6 peppercorns/ 2 dry red chillies
    3 tbsps lime/ lemon juice
    1/2 tsp orange food coloring
    1 kg chicken (breast or thigh) skinless and cut into 2" chunks
    1 large onion cut into very thin rings
    Lime/ Lemon wedges to garnish
    1 tsp Chaat Masala (available at most Indian groceries)



    I ground some of our dried serranos for the dry red chillies.

    I went to our spice cupboard to get the garam masala that we make. The bottle was empty! No worries, we have all of the ingredients!

    4 tbsps coriander seeds
    1 tbsp cumin seeds
    1 tbsp black peppercorns
    1 ½ tsps black cumin seeds (shahjeera)
    1 ½ tsps dry ginger
    ¾ tsp black cardamom (3-4 large pods approx)
    ¾ tsp cloves
    ¾ tsp cinnamon (2 X 1” pieces)
    ¾ tsp crushed bay leaves



    I had some cinnamon ground already.



    Toast and grind the spices.







    I run this through a sieve to make sure it is totally ground. Any bits left are put in a mortar and pestle to finish off.

    Me, I'd just go to one of the really good Curry Houses nearby. Eat really good food, with no effort on my part, and not have to clean up afterwards. And I'd have Poppadoms too.

    I'm just glad I was wrong. When I read the title "Indian cubed" my first thought was it had to do with an unfortunate worker falling into the machinery. This is a much tastier story.

    You can make one with heat and one without.











    EDIT: There are a few exotic ingredients in these recipes. Shop for these at ethnic grocers to save $$$.

    Sides: Saag Paneer and Daal

    Saag Paneer

    I love Manjulas videos.

    Paneer (a simple farmers cheese)



    I use a 1200 watt microwave, not the stove top. Notice she scorched the milk.

    1/2 gallon of whole milk
    1 cup fresh lemon juice



    Place milk in large microwave safe bowl.

    Microwave on high for 10 minutes.
    Stir in fresh lemon juice. You will see the curd separate from the whey.
    Microwave 5 more minutes.



    Run through a fine sieve.
    Kneed the cheese and place it in cheese cloth or a tea towel.



    Place in another sieve above a bowl with the whey on top. Let this sit for about 2 hours.

    Saag Paneer

    http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/t...ipe/index.html

    I like using our homegrown collard greens for this. The curry recipe here is garam masala. We didn't fry the cheese this time. Sometimes the homemade cheese does not hold up as well.



    Cook these down for about an hour. Then run in a food processor until smooth.



    Return to stove and add the rest. We add tomatoes also.



    Finish by adding the paneer.

    This is a tasty lentil side dish. We puree the daal at the end. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
