The great Indian curry is a pretty fascinating concept for most. I am often asked for a good Indian curry recipe. While i should have an immediate answer, i am left rather confused. This is probably because we have an infinite number of Indian curries. However, how to make Dum Aloo Punjabi always tops the list for what seems like an uncanny reason. Or is it due to the fact that Dum Aloo is also my personal favourite. Furthermore, the list also includes our other most noteworthy gravies like the paneer butter masala, malai koftas, shahi paneer, pindi chole, palak paneer etc….
The paneer they say is the vegetarian man’s chicken and quite rightly so. It won’t be an overstatement to call paneer recipes the king of indian vegetarian recipes. It is laden with protein and is an excellent ingredient that adapts itself to flavours, savoury and sweet alike. The Malai kofta too is nothing but paneer kofta. They have a soft, succulent, melt in mouth in texture, hence the name perhaps. To learn how to make malai kofta read the detailed recipe given below….

This recipe is my version of comfort food for a winter Sunday lunch. Served with steaming hot rice, or Indian Naan (read the recipe here), or just a loaf of garlic bread, this dish is an absolute bliss. I was first introduced to this dish by my father on a Christmas lunch, where he told me how this recipe had undergone several variations in every chef’s hand….
Chili Coriander Fish Curry Recipe:
A spicy Bengali fish curry recipe, the delicious Lonka Dhone Baata Maach.
Popularly known as ‘Lonka-Dhone baata maach’ in Bengali household, this lightly spiced fragrant aromatic fish curry used to be my childhood favorite in winters. Come winters and my mother would keep a jar full of green chilies and green coriander paste in fridge, to whip up the spicy green curry with steamed rice on a perfect cold winter afternoon.
To create the dish in my typical nostalgic way, here is what you will need for the recipe.

Recipe repost: Our star recipe for Chicken Korma, chicken in a thick Indian style gravy.
The much awaited re-post with new pics is here, it’s my first recipe, a recipe with which I began this journey. It’s somehow also one of the most visited recipes on my blog till date and yet it took me so long to click and post some decent pics (you know what I mean if have seen the original post). Guess it was this comment by a reader “what’s with the blurred pics” and I thought its about time that I update this awesome recipe with some pics that can do justice to the recipe.
