recipe that will convert you to an Indian food lover! This is my personal favorite so I stand behind it 100%. I hoard the leftovers for myself and really enjoy that my kids are still a little wary of this dish---more for me, I say!If you've never tried Indian food--THIS is the
This recipe for Indian Chicken and Vegetables actually contains no curry powder and is pretty mild--unless you go nuts with the chili sauce and cayenne pepper. We can't do really spicy food at home because it makes the kids cry--and who needs that drama! So, if you make it as listed you don't have too worry about it being too hot.
The coconut milk is what makes this dish magical! You can find Coconut milk and light coconut milk in most supermarkets. I skip the light stuff unless I am really trying to watch my calories. The full fat version is much better and the fat in coconut milk isn't the kind that will make you fat. In fact, there is even some recent research that suggests using coconut oil in cooking because of its weight LOSS benefits . So, here is a healthy splurge. Go for the real stuff!
One caution---the turmeric stains clothing and will stain your counter tops for a little while if they are Formica-- so be a neat cook when you make this.
I have also included a recipe for Naan, or Indian flatbread. With only four ingredients, it is easy to make and probably healthier than traditional naan made with Ghee (clarified butter). However, I find that this bread is really GREAT fresh, but not so hot as leftovers. How's that for selling you on my recipe?--just being honest I guess.
