from Brent Thompson
DescriptionThe recipe originally came from a Kashmiri cookbook that Brent came across while living in India.
Combine 1/2 of the water and a handful of the spinach in a jar of a blender. Blend at high speed for 30 seconds. Keep adding spinach until about half is blended. Add a little more water, if necessary, to puree.
In a large skillet, heat the butter over moderate heat. Add the ginger and saute for one minute. Add the onions and salt and continue sauteing for 5 more minutes.
Stirring after each addition, add the cumin, turmeric, coriander, and garam masala. Then stir in the leafy and pureed spinach. Reduce the heat and cook the mixture uncovered, for 20 to 30 minutes. Most of the liquid should evaporate. At the last minute, gently add the paneer. Serve hot.
Microwave lentils and stock in covered bowl for 5 minutes, stirring after 3 minutes (or cook classically). Add the vegetables and sultanas. Stir throught he tomato puree and curry powder. Cook on 100% power for 8 minutes, or on stove top for 30 minutes. Allow to stand for 3 minutes before serving with herbed rice.
1.clean chicken and remove the skin 2.make a smooth paste of yogurt, garlic, ginger, lime juice, cinnamon, cloves, cardamoms, peppercorns and the oil. Marinate the chicken in this for 6 hours. 3.Bake the chicken in a preheated oven for 10 minutes at 250 F (130 C). Put it aside. It kind of makes sense to finish steps 1-3 before starting step 4. 4.We need to get a tomato sauce. Cut tomatoes, put ’em in a pan (no water) and boil. When the quantity has dropped by half, strain through a fine sieve. What comes out of the sieve is the tomato sauce. (This is hard work with a clumsy sieve). 5.Take a pan, start heating the sauce, add the butter. When the butter is melted, add the white pepper powder, salt, fenugreek leaves and cream. 6.Mix the chicken pieces into this sauce. You may like chopped coriander (cilantro) as topping. Serve hot. This works best with good rice (i.e. basmati).
Comments: If you don’t like struggling with chicken bones, this recipe works perfectly with boneless chicken. You need to estimate how much boneless chicken to use: I guess 2 pounds of chicken is around 1.25 pounds of boneless chicken.
1.Use large fish for korma. Do not cut the fish into too small pieces. 2.Except for the green chillis and kewra, add all the rest of stuff into the cooking dish. Mix well. Heat covered in low heat. Turn over the fish once (be careful). When the water has almost dried up, add the green chilli and the kewra heat for another half hour in very low heat. 3.When the oil begins to float on top, you are done.
These are great at barbecues, and as a snack, starter or main course, and are familiar friends at the Indian restaurant. You should get about eight kebabs from this mix. Serve with salad, lemon wedges and tandoori chutney.
1.Soak the dhal overnight, then boil in twice its volume of water. Strain off any excess water. 2.Put the meat, onion, ginger, garlic and spices through a mincer. Mix well and add salt to taste. 3.Add the dhal to the mixture, and fry in a little ghee for 20 minutes. Add a *little* water if it dries up too much. Leave aside for about 3 hours or overnight to thicken and dry. 4.The next day, or when ready, add the egg yolk, and, if it doesn’t hold together, add gram flour to thicken or water to thin. Add fresh coriander or parsley. 5.For Seekh Kebabs roll mixture in breadcrumbs to sausage shapes. Skewer them and cook over charcoal (best), under the grill, or fry in a frying pan. 6.For Shami Kebabs, roll into balls, coat in breadcrumbs and deep-fry. Yields: About 8.

Grind the ginger, garlic, and almonds with water. Heat oil in a non-stick pan, and fry the chicken until it turns golden brown. Keep it aside and drain the oil. Heat some oil and add the cardamom, bay leaves and cloves and fry until the bay leaves turn brown. Add the onions and fry for a few minutes.
Pour the paste from the blender and fry for a couple of minutes until the oil separates. Add 1 tablespoon of yogurt and fry for 30 seconds. Keep adding tablespoons of yogurt and fry until you get a consistent mixture. Add the chicken, whipped cream and salt and cook gently (low heat) for 20 minutes. Add garam masala and coriander leaves and cook for another 10 minutes.
Heat oil. Add red chili, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon stick, and bay leaf, and cook until the bay leaf turns golden brown. Add the onion and fry for two minutes. Add the ginger garlic paste and fry for 4 – 6 minute. Add the chicken and fry for 5 minutes. Sprinkle in chili, dhania powder, cumin powder and turmeric.
Cover chicken + salt (add water if needed) and cook for around 15 minutes until 3/4 cooked. Add can of tomato paste and cook on low heat. Just before removing, add the whipping cream and cook for a few minutes. Add garam masala and coriander leaves Remove after a couple of minutes.
Remove fat from the chicken and then salt and pepper it. Sprinkle with chili powder. Add yogurt and mix well until the chicken is covered liberally with yogurt. Use your hands. Set aside for 1 hour before cooking. If kept in the refrigerator, set aside for at least 4 hours.
Heat oil in a large heavy pan. When oil is hot, add mustard seeds, if you are using them. Add cloves, cardamom, and coriander seeds and fry for 30 seconds. Add the onion and fry for two minutes until the onion beings to turn brown. Lower heat to medium. Add the ginger and garlic paste and fry for 4-6 minutes. Add mustard powder, if using it, add garam masala, and add cumin powder.
Brush excess yogurt off the chicken and put it in a large pot. Add ingredients from the frying pan. Cook uncovered over high heat for 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 25 minutes or until the chicken is tender, stirring every 5 minutes.
Important note: ————— When chicken is cooked with a cover on the pot, it releases water that becomes a part of the sauce. If after 10 minutes, there isn’t enough sauce in the pot, add 1/4 cup water. Conversely, if there is too much liquid in the pot, cook uncovered until the liquid evaporates. Variations: ———– There are several variations to the above recipe:
1.) Leave out the yogurt. Add 1/4 cup of water just before turning the heat to low and covering the pot.
2.) Boil two potatoes for 10 minutes before slicing them thinly. Add sliced potatoes to the pot when you start cooking the chicken.
3.) This variation is usually called “Malai Chicken” or literally “creamy” chicken. Leave out the yogurt. When the chicken is 3/4 done, add one small can of tomato paste. Just before removing add a small carton of whipping cream, and cook for a few minutes.
Cut chicken, separate legs and thighs, back and split breast. Heat oil over high heat. Add onions and fry until golden brown. Take care not to burn them. Add garlic, ginger and tomatoes. Fry until a smooth paste is obtained. Add chicken, add water, bring to a boil, and add salt. Cover pot and lower heat. Add chili to make it hot if desired. Stir constantly to avoid burning and coat the chicken pieces evenly.
After the chicken is done, add vinegar and cook for another 5 minutes on very low heat. Sprinkle on garam masala and serve.
If you are using the ready made tandoori paste then life is a lot easier. Replace all occurences of masala and soy sauce (or yogurt) with the tandoori paste.
Take the chicken and make *deep* cuts in it (so that the Masalas seeps in quickly). If you are using soy sauce as the base, put some on the chicken pieces and let it seep in the cuts.
Rub in the Masalas as a mixture or one at a time. The idea is to let the Masalas seep in the cuts with the soy sauce. You can leave it for little while to seep in.
If you are using yogurt, you’ll get a more authentic taste since the original TC is after all marinated in it. In this case, mix the Masalas in the yogurt first and then rub the stuff into the chicken cuts as before. The yogurt tends to leave a considerable amount of water behind. DON’T THROW THIS AWAY. Let it evaporate in the oven with the chicken. This will keep the pieces from getting dry if over-cooked. I have not faced the same problem with the soy sauce version (of dry chicken).
Cook the chicken until it starts turning brown. and the cuts you made start “expanding.”
Cut the Bombay ducks into 5 cm lengths. Heat oil in a small pan and deep fry the pieces. Take them out and drain them. Pour off oil, leaving about half the original amount. In it, fry the onions and garlic until onion is soft and golden. Add chilies and fry for 2 or 3 minutes longer. Return the Bombay duck pieces and stir fry for a minute. Add lemon juice and salt to taste. Serve hot or at room temperature. Note : Bombay duck is not a bird, despite its name. This is a variety of fish that is salted and dried. It is sold in packets. Deep fried or grilled, it is served as an accompaniment to a meal or rice and curry, and should be nibbled in little pieces.
