Not sure what to cook?
Food is often served on a plate with bowls, called a thali, with the sweet simply enjoyed following the savoury. Yes a quality Lamb Biryani does take a good four hours plus to make. But there are plenty of quick and easy dishes to whizz up in no time at all, for those inclined that way.
If you have a genuine love of cooking, there is an Indian dish for every occasion. That yoghurt thing served on the side of your Indian meal? The casein in yoghurt absorbs capsaicin, the compound that gives chillies their punch. Scientific, see? And papad, referred to commonly by its South Indian name Pappadum, does not need a reason for its existence. No sir. And so it should, like every pleasurable experience. The food is worth it. The addition of chillies in fresh, ground or paste form depends from dish to dish based on the recipe. And the power of spices? They are widely lauded for their health benefits.
Turmeric, chillies, cinnamon, fennel and fenugreek have all been scientifically proved to be good for you. Indian desserts range from the sublime to the superlative. From little sweets or mithai, which complete a meal, to lavish feasts that are meals in themselves.
