Hi :

I'm curious about preparing Indian food. How about a thread where everyone posts their favorite recipes Unfortunately, I don't have any to share Unfair, I know...sorry (I could provide Mexican recipes, although this might not be the adequate forum for such endeavour).

Finally, I'm curious as to what foods are not safe once in India. Being Mexican, and having spent most of my life living there, I know there are quite a few no-no's in Mexico (Salads in restaurants, fruit shakes...especially strawberry, etc.).

Thanks,

Jenny

Well,
Good thought..i can contribute some recepies too..
But the indian style cooking is very elaborate so ppl try to do shortcuts. Then the taste never come the same.

cheers
Life is a beautiful journey so keep travelling with a SMILE

mexicans love 'hot' foods - 'hot' means with lots and lots of chili. hence, you would probably relish all indian dishes because we indians also love hot dishes. we even put chopped green chili in our salads - add chopped green chilis in your salad and squeeze a few drops of lemon on the top. then, mix them thoroughly and your salad will get an out-of-the-world taste!!

how's this recipe for a starter?

The same cautions apply to the food in India as in Mexico. Plus, even though you may be accustomed to the water in Mexico it would probably be wise to avoid it in India.

Sadhuji:

ĄThanks, for the recipe, sounds great!

But I have a little problem, I'm living in Buenos Aires Argentina right now, so the people in here really don't like spicy food.

I already explored the chinese market, but didn't find chilis, or anything spicy, so I'll have to wait.=(

My boyfriend and I are palning a trip to India, porbably in April, so I'm really excited about everything, of course about the food as well.

april 2005 is a long way off.

in the meantime u could try out a simple recipe. it involves eggs and onions both of which should be available in abundance. the end product goes by the name of 'egg dopiajja'. u have to boil the eggs just so much that the yolk hardens - but remains soft as well! difficult to achieve at the first attempt - but no harm trying.

shell the eggs, fry them and keep them aside.

cut the onions into fine slices and fry them also till they turn brownish. add salt and chili powder to taste. we also add a pinch of turmeric powder. then, add the fried eggs.

the 'egg dopiajja' is ready to be eaten - alongwith bread or chapatis or plain 'roti's or even rice.

DH makes something similar to this. Maybe it is not the same dish, but ingredients are the same. His has water, tomatoes, and onions to make more of a curry. And he cuts ~3 short slits lengthwise on each egg after it is boiled. This allows the eggs to absorb some of the sauce. I think the idea bout boiling the eggs a little less would also be an improvement... if I can convice DH it is safe -- he likes his food well cooked to say the least.
