Here's another recipe for Kadhi (i keep spelling it wrong)...I like to look at sever different recipes to get a feeling for it, as I am not Indian and don't know as much as a well expereinced Indian cook...I've only been doing it for 10 years or so, and not every day....my family was getting really sick of Indian food because I cooked it all the time, so I had to lay low for a while....I usually just cook it for myself occasionally now.

Kunga; thanks! I appreciate your giving the spinach alternative. Making pakoras, well never have done and probably won't as it's pretty labor intensive & I don't deep fry at home.
Though come and eat at our house;-) We make Indian food about twice a week, we all love Southern food, kootus, sambar, homey stuff. When we got sick of it, I then moved up to Gujarat cuisine. Don't care for Punjabi food. We make Southern Indian, Persian and Italian & Adventist (American) that's our rota.


Do you have any homey Jain curries? I'd love to make some to go with that fab dal (I have a ton for weekend leftovers)
this is such a fun thread:)
gassho & thanks

The Tai-ching states "the women in the realms of Mara, Sakra and Brahma all neither abandoned ( their old) bodies nor received (new) bodies. They all received buddhahood with their current bodies (genshin)" Thus these verses state that the dharma nature is like a great ocean. No right or wrong is preached (within it) Ordinary people and sages are equal, without superiority or inferiority

The only curries i have made (and learned from a Jain lady, that isn't very Jain :smile: ) are:

Aloo gobi (Potato's & califlower)
Kadda Ki Subji (squash)
Sukhi Arbi (dry) (taro root)
Bhindi (okra)

One of my favorites is a Punjabi curry called Aloo Methi :smile:


Here's my recipe for Aloo Gobi :
You will need:

Potates
Califlower
cumin seed
tumeric
grahm masala
salt & pepper
fresh cilantro

onion & garlic are not Jain but also an option :smile:

Method:

Saute cumin seeds in oil/ghee (i prefer ghee)
cut into chunks potato & califlower
add tumeric, salt pepper, grahm masala

cook until tender/soft (until potatoes are done)
fliping occasionally to prevent sticking & burning

add fresh chopped cilantro
season as nessessary


I'll post the other recipes later

Thanks for the invite :smile: :cheers:

Food is my favorite Dharma subject :shrug:

Rory,
I went shopping yesterday to get the ingredients for your recipe (Tofu Croquettes ), but I didn't get the Nutritional Yeast, I thought regular yeast ws the same thing, (i've never used it before !) So when I get the NY I'll be ready to make it :)

(I have not read the whole thread sorry i am lazy) if someone hasn't already mentioned it. If you live in the states. Amy's brand food who make vegetarian and vegan canned an frozen meals actually makes some pretty good Indian type food. I get them for work a lot of the time. I am spoiled I have 2-3 awesome restaurants and one with a buffet that has a lot of veggie stuff i can eat. also about an hour from me is an Indian grocery store that is big. has a lot of fresh quick prepared foods as well. including dessert .
