Default looking for simple indian recipes (vegetarian)

Hi,

I'm looking for some simple indian food recipes. I'm having trouble
getting other than ad sites when I search for this with Google.

I'm looking for simple (or simpler...)- it's okay if it's not
completely authentic or is westernized. If there aren't good resources
on the web, can someone recommend a book?

I just googled it with "chana dal" and got this:

http://www.mendosa.com/chanadal.html


Since I don't like complication, I chose "simple chama dal" and it is:

(Note: You can buy Garam Masala; BTW, I would have a meat dish also,
curry or kabob)

Ingredients:


2 cups (uncooked) chana dal

6 cups water

1 large onion

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garam masala1

salt to taste

Preparation:

Simmer dal until tender. Purée part of it. Carmelize onion in a bit of
olive oil. Add garam masala and simmer a bit more. Add onions to dal.

Serving suggestions:

Serve over a bed of one-half rice and one-half barley. Top with
fat-free sour cream or plain non-fat yogurt.

Notes:

1Garam masala is a mixture of fragrant, pulverized spices. In Bengal it
consists of cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves. In other parts of India it
may also include black peppercorns, nutmeg, coriander, and other
spices. All Indian stores sell ground garam masala.

blacksalt. You can also find it at
http://vsack.homepage.t-online.de/afa_faq.html. I have just culled
some dead links from the Indian section.

Hi,

for great veg recipes:
1. the pleasure of indian vegetrain cooking - tarla dalal (authentic)
2. the art of indian vegetarain cooking - yamuna devi (satvik style; no
onions, no garlic)

for greatest satisfaction, pls recite a bhojan-mantra at the beginning and
then play pundit jasraj's songs at low volume during dinner.

om shanti.

I;ve been told to always cook the spices seperately in a dry skillet
before adding them. Does it work to just dump in the cumin, coriander,
etc with the rest of the ingredients??


It works the way any other recipe substitution works: if you like
the taste, then it's okay (though maybe not authentic).

I would, however, recommend toasting the spices the first time you
make a recipe. Toasting really does change the flavor of a spice, as
does crushing it before use (or toasting _and_ crushing it). I was
given an object lesson in that from a native Indian cook.
