Easy Indian Food Recipe

In the last few years the rich and flavorful foods of India have come into Western culture with a bang. These delicious and exotic dishes always go better with the proper condiment, so here are a couple of authentic (and easy) recipes for you to try out at home.

Saffron and Nut Sauce for Kabobs

Kabobs are nothing new to Westerners, but putting a little kick into the same old tired meat and veggies on a stick takes just a little effort with this recipe. The aroma alone is enough to get the stomach in a hurry to have at it! This recipe serves 12.

Ingredients:

1/4 tsp saffron strands

4 tbsp boiling water

8 tbsp almonds (blanched)

4 tbsp pistachios (blanched)

2 tbsp ghee (or butter can be used)

1 1/2 cups cream

1 cup milk

1 tsp ground cardamom

1 tsp salt (or to taste)

1/2 tsp white pepper

Directions:

Dissolve the saffron in boiling water. Grind the pistachios and almonds (a blender works best!) until they become a fine powder or paste. Melt the butter in a pan and fry the ground nuts. Be sure to stir occasionally. Add in the saffron, cardamom, cream, milk, salt, and pepper. Simmer this until the sauce has become thick. You will want to be sure to stir it constantly as it simmers to keep it from burning. Serve with kebobs.

Basic Curry Sauce

Perhaps the trademark of Indian cooking is the curry sauce. There are many variations of this popular delicacy. This is the basic version that once perfected, will allow for a lot of experimentation by the home chef.

Ingredients:

4 oz ghee (or butter can be used)

4 lbs onions (finely chopped)

2 tsp cumin seeds

2 tsp salt

1/2 cup water
