The best Indian Recipes!
I have never done any Indian cooking, but a bunch of friends and I are about to change this. Can you recommend your favorite tried and true Indian cookbooks, or online recipe resources?
p.s. One recipe I am specifically looking for is saag chicken (not sure of exact Indian name). Chicken with creamy spinach sauce, like saag paneer, but chicken instead of cheese.
Some online resources for the cusines of Indian. I have no knowledge of cooking. Please follow the links
from each blog for additional resources.
Hope these are of help to you.

Madhur Jaffrey is wonderful. She has loads of good cookbooks. I'd recommend the quick and easy ones for a new cook, or the original Introduction (Invitation?) to Indian Cooking. The latter doesn't have pictures, but the recipes are really good.
Also, Julie Sahni's books are really good, but I'm not sure they're the easiest for a beginner. If you're already an accomplished cook, though, they should be no trouble.
One thing, though: I'd only caution that home-cooked Indian food is almost nothing like restaurant Indian food. I just mention it because I've seen lots of people become disenchanted with Indian cooking because it's not like the food in their local curry house!
