Indian cuisine consists of a variety of regional and traditional cuisines native to the Indian subcontinent. Given the diversity in soil, climate, culture, ethnic groups, and occupations, these cuisines vary substantially and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables, and fruits. Indian food is also heavily influenced by religion, in particular Hinduism and Islam, cultural choices and traditions. Indian cuisine has influenced other cuisines across the world, especially those from Europe (especially Britain), the Middle East, Southern African, East Africa, Southeast Asia, North America, Mauritius, Fiji, Oceania, and the Caribbean.

Keema is an Indian curry traditionally made with minced meat (often mutton or goat). This vegan version uses soya granules in place of meat. Sometimes peas are added and indeed you could add some frozen peas to this recipe if you like. Add them a few minutes before the end of cooking. The whole...
This dish is made rather differently from the curries I’m used to cooking. Normally I start by frying onions, garlic and ginger before adding pan toasted spices. Here, everything is marinated together and then cooked ‘all in one’. In fact, you can even marinate it in the pot in which you are...
Toasted coconut adds a nutty flavour to this curry. I used mild Kashmiri chilli for the lovely red colour it imparts but you could add a hotter ground chilli as well, for a spicier curry. The yoghurt adds tang and body to the aromatic curry sauce. Serve with rice or flatbreads.

Kalonji seeds really work their magic here. Their smoky earthy flavour contrasts beautifully with the sulphurous cabbage. Serve along with other curry dishes and rice or naan bread or as an individual dish topped with a fried egg. Add more chilli for a spicier result. I also used some chopped...
I love this recipe with a passion! It´s simple, satisfying, and uses my favourite dal - toor dal. The recipe comes from "Classic Indian Vegetarian and Grain Cookery" by Julie Sahni , although I´m writing up the recipe from memory because the original is back in Caracas!

A chutney is basically a spicy marmalade. chatni in Hindi means "to lick", so basically this is something...
This recipe is inspired by Mughlai cuisine and the desire of the Mughals for recipes rich in nuts, mild spices, exotic combinations and dried fruit. However, the ingenuity of the Hindu chefs created a "korma" (traditionally made with meat) which pleased the Emperor Akbar.

1 kg of unsalted butter and
A medium to large saucepan
Put all the butter in the pan and heat - medium - until the butter has completely melted.
Keep heating until the butter begins to "erupt", then lower the heat to between low and medium. A white foam will appear on the...
