Knowing your Indian foods

My local Indian store recently expanded, now being much easier to browse. I still feel rather intimidated on what to try, but found pouches of ready to eat foods on sale unbelievably tasty!

Anyway, I did a search and was very happy to find this incredibly helpful list of Indian foods!

Thanks! That's really a great list! I love Indian food. Love Bollywood. Love India (been there twice...once as a kid and once in 2009)

I have two vegan Indian cookbooks and there's an Indian store about 20 miles aways and I've been there a few times.

I got black salt--that eggy tasting powder. I've never missed egg taste, but I made scrambled tofu this morning with it and my son absolutely loved it! It's super strong and salty, so I mixed a pinch with some water and cooked till absorbed.

I have several Indian and Pakistani grocery stores nearby. I recently decided to check them out, and they have vegetables I've never seen before. So I pick one thing to get, take a picture of the name of it, and then look up directions online on how to cook it. So far so good. It's definitely expanded my menu. I still use the popular Indian recipes, too. When people ask me what I eat, I can honestly say "a lot more variety than I ever did before".

I've been wanting to try that for ages, I'm so curious about it. I was also never a huge fan of eggs but I think I'd like the vegan version better since I wouldn't be so grossed out thinking about where eggs come from.

Helpful links!

Pindi chana (chickpea curry) is a favorite of mine. I usually throw a spoonful of vegan Tofutti sour cream on top.
Tasty Bite is what I buy when I can find it.
