Ali Khan Eats Indian Buttermilk Chicken Curry, which isn't exactly a thing but it should be. I'd go out and buy buttermilk before Id reach for yogurt. Spices make the real difference though, so shop wisely. I like Spicewalla from James Beard winning chef Meherwan Irani.

Indian
August 19, 2021
Lamb Vindaloo: a go to recipe Like a lot of you, my first experience with Lamb Vindaloo was at an Indian restaurant. My parents immigrated from Bangladesh and our lamb curries were just called . . . lamb curries. Indian restaurants in the US are notoriously monotonous with their carbon copy menus, lunch buffets and decor. Which is more a reflection of the American appetite for Indian/South Asian food for that “ethnic option”. Well times are changing. Diners are becoming ...

An Easy Dal Recipe This easy dal recipe post has been a long time coming. Dal is the comfort food of my people. Growing up in a Bengali household in the Midwest in the 1980s, “Indian food” was seldom something we would go out for. It was the food we ate at home on weeknights and on weekends at friend’s homes. It was a cuisine I took for granted until I went off to college and found myself 2000 miles ...
