Indian Cooking Night

Last night, I decided to try my hand at semi-homemade Indian. I’ve been craving Indian for a while, and had a korma kit I had picked up at World Market a little while back that I needed to use, so it seemed like a natural choice. I had originally planned to make this dish with paneer (cheese), but decided to keep that for another dish, probably a makhani of some sort.

Tandoori Chicken, Chicken Korma

I served it with tandoori chicken (chicken thighs marinated in a tandoori mixture (1 cup plain full fat yogurt, 2 tbsp. tandoori masala, generous squirt of lemon juice), and then grilled on the contact grill), basmati rice, and naan from Trader Joe’s. Unfortunately for me, the korma was a bit too spicy for my tastes (my loss is hubby’s gain!), so I filled up on tandoori chicken and naan. 


For dessert, I made the wonderful kheer (Indian Rice Pudding) recipe that was recently posted on A Fridge Full of Food. Glenna is right, the flavor IS all packed in the coconut milk and cardamom, and it tasted exactly like the stuff I get in the Indian restaurants. And like most of Alton Brown’s recipes, this one is a keeper.

  1. Only a army family may understand what it really
    is like to have family holed up in dangerous wars, out of in distant lands,
    or maybe even handling and also training in probably the most advanced items, combat,
    along with firearms on earth.
