Indian food with friends


Our nextdoor neighbors left today for Texas ... we wanted to see them off, and I made the risky decision to cook them an Indian dinner yesterday. Happily it was edible!

Tandoori Chicken

Skin about 3 lbs of drumsticks and marinate them overnight in a mixture of tandoori spices (I cheated and used a pre-made spice mix) and yogurt. Then grill or roast them.

Aloo Gobi

My favorite indian veggie dish (above right, hiding under some cilantro) was made with a recipe from a book Ravi lent me. It's basically just potatoes and cauliflower in some spices and an onion garlic puree. Onion milkshake anyone?

That little pile of chickpeas, tomatoes, cilantro, potato and crisp puffed rice and chickpea crackers is served with mint chutney. It's called Bhel Puri. Ravi says it's Indian fast food.
