Kashmiri dal recipe? Can't seem to find it....
Visited Bangalore last year for a few months and I loved going to a restaurant at served an amzing dal dish. I was told it was Kashmiri cuisine. They were black, and almost smoky and very creamy. Absolutely my favorite dish while I was there. Does anyone know where you can find a recipe for this? I have a couple of Indian cookbooks (including a couple I picked up while I was there), but this particular dish escapes me.
Thanks in advance.
I found a recipe for Kashmiri chicken in my 'Simply Indian' book. I'll transcribe it; maybe you can do some subbing if it sounds right (or, heck, make it with the chicken; it sounds good)
2 lbs whole chicken
2 tbsp fried onions
2-3 green chilies
1 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp ginger paste
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1.5 tsp curry powder
1 tsp red chili powder
2 tbsp garam masala
2 tbsp coconut (desiccated and unsweetened)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp haldi (tumeric)
1/4 cup yogurt
1/4 cup chopped parsley (for sprinkling)
1. Heat oven to 375F (190C)
2. Wash and cut chicken into 8 pieces and put into a baking pan.
3. Blend the fried onions, green chilies, tomatoes, garilc paste, ginger paste, fresh lemon juice, curry powder, red chili powder, garam masala, coconut, salt and turmeric in a food processor, then add the vegetable oil and turmeric.
4. Pour the mixture over the chicken pieces.
5. Bake for approximately 40 minutes.
Serve with fried potatoes on a bed of yellow rice sprinkled with parsley.
