Are you looking for a Bangladeshi recipe? They are heavily spice and have much in common with Indian dishes, try a recipe for dhal, biryanis, curry or kheer.
I actually learned this in the kitchen of a seasoned Indian homecook! Traditional fragrant dish with toor dhal, ginger, chilli, tomatoes, cumin and garlic.
True naan is made in a tandoor but this is a great alternative that can be made on any home barbecue and creates results as good as any Indian restaurant.
For those who like their Indian food warmly spiced rather than fiery hot, try this delicious lamb and spinach dish.
Red lentils are surprisingly convenient. They require no presoaking and cook up quickly in just 20 minutes. In this recipe, lentils are flavoured with onions, garlic and spices, garnished with yoghurt and spring onions.
This recipe uses besan or chickpea flour which is very common in Indian cooking. Your supermarket probably carries it.
Biryani are Indian rice dishes, usually flavoured with a complex mix of spices. This quick version uses cumin, cloves, garam masala and chilli powder.
A biryani consists of curried meat, poultry, fish or vegetables combined with basmati rice to make a complete meal. Here chicken curry is layered with the rice and baked, then served with a fresh cucumber raita.
This makes a wonderful accompaniment to a spicy main dish. It is also good as a vegetarian main course for two, especially when served with dal and warm naan bread.
This dhal is made with yellow split peas and fresh spinach. We've also added three magic flavours—turmeric, fenugreek and garlic—into this spicy stew.
This recipe has an exotic flavour thanks to a simple seasoning of fenugreek seeds and turmeric, two magic spices. Fenugreek seeds have a distinctive aroma reminiscent of curry. For variety, you could substitute orange sweet potato, carrot or parsnip for the pumpkin.
