Growing up I would watch my mother make paneer.    Paneer is the Indian name for a solid form of Ricotta cheese where the water has been removed from it.  I’m not going to say that she spent hours slaving to make fresh paneer.  No because making fresh whole milk ricotta or paneer as Indians refer to it is absurdly simple.  You can use paneer in your favorite paneer curry or enjoy it with some olive oil and fresh ground black pepper.

Chicken Curry

Posted by on Jan 1, 2014 in Gluten-free, Meat | 0 comments



Chicken curry is a dish that can vary widely based on the region of India you are from.  This version is a classic Bengali preparation passed down in my family.  What this curry is not is the overly rich restaurant style chicken curry.   THIS is the chicken curry you go to an Indian grandmother’s house for.  It is nothing short of a labor or of love.

Masterfully delicious curries can be made quickly with few ingredients.  However,  they can also be arduous with many ingredients.  This chicken curry is somewhere in between.  The key to this curry is the onions and their proper preparation.

After 10 days in Ireland,  I was desperate for something that didn’t include potatoes… Armed with a bag of read kidney beans and ground beef I decided on a non-vegetarian rajma. For those of you that are not familiar with rajma, it is a classical vegetarian Indian dish often eaten alone as a soup, or accompanied with rice. You can easily omit the meat from this dish and it will be just as delicious. Enjoy!

So I woke up this morning and IT just sounded good!   A savory delicious omelette.  But I didn’t want a frittata style omelette where all the ingredients were embedded into the omelette… no what I wanted was something reminiscent of a crepe… not too thick  not too thin.  So I came up with this recipe.  This omelette is light yet fulfilling.  The kielbasa, onion and tomato combine and evolve making this a rich treat.
