I want ALL of that! Please post recipes when you have a chance.

It all looks so interesting and delicious! What's the little clump on the left?

The garlic achaar. The other 3 dishes are all Madhur Jaffrey recipes, though I used Kashmiri chile powder instead of the paprika and cayenne called for in her book. It was fun making the poori. They blew up like little.balloons just like she said they would.

Rogan josh.

Saag aloo.

Poori. Easy to make. For 6, 3/8 cups each of AP and whole wheat flours, 1/2 tsp salt, about 1 Tbsp vege oil, and 1/4 to 3/8 cup water.

Mix flours and salt together. Drizzle in oil and work in with fingers until you have a breadcrumb looking mixture. Start with 1/4 cup water and mix until you have a fairly stiff dough. Knead on a lightly floured board 5-6 minutes, form a ball, place in s plastic bag and let rest for at least 30 minutes. Divide dough ball into 6 equal pieces, form small balls, flatten and roll out each ball into a 5 to 5-1/2 inch disk. Fill a pan with about 1-1/2 inches vege oil and heat until "very hot" (a direct quote, no temp given). One at a time, lay the disks into the oil and make short quick striking movements with a utensil (I used a metal spoon with holes). It should start blowing up like a balloon pretty much immediately. Turn over to cook the top side and continue to turn until light golden brown all over. Drain and eat while still hot.

I copied these posts into a new thread so we could find them again. Too many great recipes get buried in the dinner threads.

Beautiful job, Karen!
