    If you are cooking indian food, you need garum masala. If you don't have that, you'll have a hard time cooking anything but straight "curry" dish.

    Ask "Deejay" Om... he swears by Indian food. We went to an Indian restaurant in Paris and the minute we got there we noticed there was a dead mouse in one of the glass tiles in the ceiling. On the way out I said "have a mice day"... and instead of saying bye I said "MOUSE" the food was horrendous.. why did we eat there?????

    I enjoy some masala

    OMmie is the homie. but dude's idea of cooking is filling a glass of water from the bathroom sink.

    but he did tell me tales of the scandinavian honeys and the 12oz vodka cans.

    Those are all names of types of preparations.Chana chat is in this green sauce and the chicken is served cold. It smells like sulfur/asscheeks, but is absolutely dee-fucking-licious. I'll get back to you about recipes, gotta look some up.

    essentials.

    also good to have around but not key: bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, fennel, whole cloves, saffron, fresh and ground green or red chillie peppers, tamarind...

    if you want to wild out you can get amchoor (ground up green mango).

    and when you use turmeric watch your cloths. worse than grape juice.

    well fellers, i just realized there are 2 indian mkts in the neighborhood. problem is, i only know how to eat the food. anyone have any recipes and/or brands or products i should gather for vittles? thnak you.

    Hi, Shig,

    What you need to do is board a plane & get yourself to Montreal. I'll take you to my favorite Indian spot & you can sample some channa bhoona, masala dosas, aloo gobi, & this wacky dish which kinda tastes like rice pudding laced with lemon pledge - It tastes better than it sounds.

    Danno knows what I'm talking about.

    Peace

    Shig - This is a pretty good site for recipes. There is some corny humour so ignore that part.

    also mustard seeds and curry leaves. and maybe some of those orange lentils for dhal. and of course GREEN CHILLIES[/b]thats all south indian food basics.

    heres a nice beginers veg indian recipe that seems to kill heads that i make it for

    the bits

    a few mustard seeds (about the size of a quarter in your palm)
    a hand full of coriander (cilantro is the same thing)
    half a green chilly (or a quarter, depending on how spice you want it)
    some vegtable oil (olive oil works too)
    shreaded carrots (about a medium sized bowl full)

    the heat (before all this have your ingred. prepd)

    coat the bottom of a pan with the oil and heat up the pan at medium-high heat.

    this is the tricky part, and perfecting htis only comes with practice--throw the mustard seeds in when the oil is hot enough to crack the seeds with. If you do this right, youll hear a crackle a few seconds after you throw the seeds in. Its okay if you hear a sizzle, you just half to wait till the seeds crack to get all the flavor outta them. you also dont wanna burn your oil and you seeds or your food will taste like charcol. basically the mustard seeds should crackle for maybe 15-30 secs. o and you might get a few excited seeds that decide to pop outta your pan. that means your shit is too hot. (did i say this was a good beginners recipe) no seriously, im making it seem a lot harder than it is.

    after the whole seed fiasco, reduce the heat to about medium or alittle less (just to calm down the seeds) and throw in your chillies. let those roast for a few mins (but dont burn).

    throw your carrots in and mix with the goodies and maybe some salt and pepper. you could increase the heat if your in a hurry, but you gotta stand over them and mix it. the coriander should be the last thing you put in. and salt it to taste. thats it. should only take you about 15 min.

    next week, vegtable bryriani

    Shig -

    If I could throw my $ 0.02 into the mix - most or all foodstuffs deemed 'Indian' in North America or outside of the Subcontinent is primarily going to have either Punjabi or Gujarati origins... Tikka and tandoori rely on the tandoori oven, which was imported from Turkey and/or Persia/Iran during the course of India's history... When I travelled the coastline from Mumbai/Bombay (although I flew into Delhi) down south then back up to Calcutta, there definitely are regional specialties (as you would encounter goin' through any country)... A lot of the dishes that I had in Kerala and Tamil Nadu went heavy on coconut milk, similar to what you'd find in Malaysia/Singapore (which isn't surprising given the immigration patterns from India to that part of SE Asia: primarily Tamils from Tamil Nadu, not Sri Lanka)... And the West Bengalis sure love freshwater fish as a staple of their diet (and as a holdover from bein' the capital of British colonial India, Calcutta offers dishes such as shrimp cutlet)...
