One of our family’s favorites cuisines is Indian food. I first enjoyed an authentic Indian meal when a coworker of my father’s invited us to his home for dinner. I remember the excitement I felt anticipating the meal. Nat and Anu were very kind and the food was, well nothing short of incredible! Never before had i tasted such flavors. That first introduction was where my love of Indian food and first began.
The second half of my cookbook, You Never Cook Alone, is dedicated to the recipes our family had studied throughout our twenty plus years of homeschooling our children. We enjoy really enjoyed loved learning about other cultures and cuisines. Through regional, ethnic and international cuisine, I share with you how to take your family around the world, just as I helped my own children explore the world through food. Adding spice to the recipes, you’ll find glimpses into my life scattered among the menus. But, be prepared! Some stories may bring a smile and chuckle, while others may produce a full belly-laugh as if you were around the table with our family.
Because of our family’s love of Indian cuisine, I naturally included a chapter with Indian recipes like naan bread, chicken tikka masala, infused basmati and raita, a cucumber yogurt sauce.
Another family favorite (which was not included in my book) is this curried fish recipe. We recently served our fish over my grandmother’s recipe for stewed potatoes, but feel free to enjoy it with one of your family’s favorites starches. Couscous or steamed basmati rice would be equally yummy.
