Default Indian Food

With all this talk of prime rib I have gotten very hungry and my wife and I are about to go to our favorite Indian place with another couple. Who's with me?? Any Indian food lovers out there and if so whats your favorite dish.

Mine: Curried Goat I could eat 5 lbs. of this savory goodness!

Love Indian. Corma , masala, pekora (basically a fritter), mulligatwanii (sp) soup, kadahi, biryani. Usually with lamb and I get goat time to time.

I canít really name a favorite. Kadahi probably for the main entree but we family style some and mix up apps and main meals.

Lamb vindaloo. I ask to make it extra hot. They always look at me funny, and I nod, yes, "Indian hot, hot." They are always worried i'll send it back, never have. Have to reassure the people about heat at Thai places, too. Good garlic naan and whatever pickle they have on the menu as well.

Tandoori is good if I want something more mild.

There is a local hole in the wall indian place that has the best lamb curry, and they make all their breads fresh when you order it. Paneer and garlic stuffed naan is the bomb.

I always say "white guy hot" when they ask me how hot.

This is my go to as well. We have a wonderful Indian restaurant about a mile from us that has a lunch time buffet that we hit up a couple times a month. I could almost be a vegetarian eating Indian food it's so damn good.

Lamb vindaloo with some spicy lentil dal over rice, with fresh nan of course.

Been to India several times and oddly enough the best Chinese food I've ever had was in Mumbai.

I had wanted to say red curry. Then I looked it up. It's Thai, not Indian. Whoooops.

I used to say the same thing at a little Jamaican restaurant that I used to go to. I'd say Jamaican hot and I'd get the same look you got. They would also say something like "it's really hot". One time I came in with a couple of friends and the counter guy recognized me and set me up. The cook put 4 extra minced scotch bonnets (without me knowing) in the dish of jerked chicken I ordered. I took one bite and about halfway down, I realized I was in trouble. I started coughing and hiccuping like crazy. They all started laughing. The cook came out with a regular jerk and told me what they did. We all had a pretty good laugh...after I recovered. Got 3 lunches for free so I guess it was worth it in the end.

One of my business partners is Indian. I canít eat some of those curries as hot as he can, but I love Indian food. Now in India itís a different story depending on where you eat and how clean the food stall might be!

Closest place to where I live is 35 miles but fortunately my work has me all over the state. When an option, I'll eat it a couple times a week for lunch.
At home, I make my own but getting any good at it took a few years of learning. I've always been able to deconstruct dishes I've had and within a few attempts, dial it in. Not so with Indian food. It's been quite humbling. From techniques to balancing spice ratios in masala, it takes a lot of time to learn. So much easier to just order out. Wish that was an easy option when at home.

I work with an Indian guy who had stomach surgery a few years ago and can't eat hot food anymore.

I love growing peppers in the summer, but I can't eat them all. I always take a bunch into work and all the indian folk grab them up. Same with any tomatoes or cucumbers I have extra. I grow extra just because I enjoy taking them in and sharing them with everyone.

Its taken me a long time to get it right.

Cube up chicken and put it in a ziplock with yogurt and masala and let it sit 24 hours in the fridge.

In a wok, use some oil or ghee and cook an onion and a couple heads of garlic until they are nice and brown, then add about 2 tablespoons of masala. Then add your chicken and cook until its cooked through. Add a can of crushed tomatoes and bring to a nice simmer. Then add about a cup of yogurt. This is the best recreation I can do of restaurant chicken tikka.
