Naan is so darned good, but it wouldn't be the same without lamb korma or saag paneer. My favorite Indian dish is: called Bhartha and is principally made of ground eggplant. What is your favorite indian dish? -Charlie

favourite indian food, being indian the list could be very long. But Bhartha for me is at the top of the list, my mother can make a whole big bowl of it and I can finish the whole thing. As for other favourites: Rajma (Red Kidney Beans) and Bhindi (Okra)

Heck yeah! Isn't Bhartha just SO darned tasty?! I love it! Spicy is definitely the way to go...but not too spicy - like a 3 out of 5 - that's about right for me. Thanks for the response.

I love chicken biryani and palak (sp?) paneer. I love the naan, too. For those who do not like spinach, you may turn into a spinach lover if you try the palak paneer, as it is delicious. It is best eaten with naan, but if you run out of it, you can always eat it with basmati rice. Have you ever noticed the difference between an Indian restaurant and your typical American restaurant? American restaurants have a tendency to get noisy. I have never been in an Indian restaurant that was noisy. Never. It is very peaceful. The waiters/waitresses never seem rushed.

Kadhi Another thing to go with Babita's rice! Mix curd and besan to form an even, smooth paste. Add water--- less if you like thick kadhi and more if you like it watery---till you get a mixture that is slightly more liquid than the kadhi you want. (It'll thicken as it cooks) Throw in half a teaspoon of methi seeds (Mom says besan's bad for the tummy, but methi makes it okay ;)) and boil the mixture. Once it boils, turn the flame low and continue to cook for about 8 minutes. And it's done! Now for the seasoning.... Heat a teaspoon of oil in a ladle and sputter mustard seeds, add curry leaves and whole red chillies. Fry till done and pour over the kadhi. You can add pakoras to make it kadhi pakoda, or boondi to make it boondi kadhi, or just have it as it is! this is my favourite. i know to make it.
