Indian feast

My first Indian food was egg curry, I was so shamed by it, I had to throw it away and never told anyone since. To create the right texture and taste of Indian curry is not just a technique but an art. I live in India for 7 years and I am really proud of my skill. I am so happy when my Indian friends tell me my Indian foods are yummy!

I want to share this easy combo, that doesn’t require much work, but the results are very promising. It’s good to try new exotic recipes sometimes. I promise you, you will fine cooking these recipes quite enjoyable.

We are making:


Whole wheat roti

Chicken curry

Vegetable gravy

And spiced fried fish

I assume you know how to cook rice, so I am just going to tell you how to make easy healthy roti.

Ingredients: For 4 roti

1 cup of whole wheat flour

1 tsp of melted butter

A pinch of salt

1/4 cup of warm water (or enough to form the dough)

All you need to do is mix everything together and knead by hands until the dough is smooth and pliable. Divide the dough into 4 parts and roll each part into the thin circle sheet. Place the pan over the medium heat and roast the roti about 1/2 minute each side or until the roti is cook and lightly brown. Keep the cooked roti in aluminum foil or clean kitchen cloth until used.

For chicken curry: For 4 servings

500 gm of boneless chicken

1 onion- sliced

2 tomato- puree in the food processer until smooth paste

4 cloves garlic- minced

2 inches stick of ginger-minced

2 tsp chili powder (use less if you don’t want to much heat)

1 tsp turmeric powder

1 tbsp Garam masala or chicken masala (available at Asian or Indian grocery stores)

2 tbsp Oil

1 tsp salt (or to taste)

In the large pot, heat oil over the medium flame and sauté onion until brown. Add garlic and ginger and stir until fragranced.

Add tomato puree, chili powder, and turmeric powder and garam masala and cook until the tomato is done.

Add chicken and salt and seal the chicken in the curry sauce, stir for one minute then add 1 1/2 cups of water and bring to boil. Simmer for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken is cook and tender. Check for seasoning again and it’s done!

Vegetable gravy:

1 cup green pea

½ cup carrot- diced

½ cup potato- diced

1 onion sliced

1 tomato- diced

4 cloves Garlic- minced

2 tbsp ginger paste- 2 inches ginger crush into paste.

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp Salt or to taste

2 tbsp oil

Heat oil in the pot and sauté onion until the onion turns brown.

Add ginger and garlic and stir for 1 minute.

Add tomato and chili powder, turmeric powder and garam masala and fry until the tomato is cooked.

Dump green pea, carrot and potato in and stir. Add 2 cup of water and cook until the potato is tender and almost melt into the gravy. Add salt to taste and it’s done.

Spiced fried Fish

4 pieces of fish steaks or fish fillets

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp salt

3 tbsp oil for frying

Mix salt, chili powder and turmeric powder with 1 tbsp of water to create a marinade paste. Apply this paste to the fish and let it stand for 5 minutes.

Heat oil in the skillet over the medium flame and shallow fry fish for 2 minutes each side or until fish is done. Be careful of the intense heat and smoke at this point but believe me the outcomes are worth.

You can assemble the plate the way I did in the photo. Accompany this delicious meal with Indian mango pickle, onion slices and lemon wedges. I hope you enjoy the feast!
