What is a good site to learn how to cook Indian food properly?
Tried some homemade dosas and other thing and got completely fixated.
I know very little about Indian cuisine, but I wanted to be able to make some basic dishes. I stumbled upon this guy's blog, and I must say I find it very charming and helpful. He's a home cook, he gives easy recipes, provides good photos, and has a way with words. Plus I'm a sucker for anyone whose recipes call for "a generous knob" of butter. (I'm a fool for inexact measurements.)
But as I said I'm far from expert, so I'm sure other will have different ideas.
Couple of suggestions:
If you live near an Indian community visit their market and speak to the store Manager. They will be eager to walk you through the spices, condiments, flours, dairy and produce aisle to assemble your ingredients list. When I started making Indian sweets visiting an Indian market and bakery was tremendously helpful.
If you don't have that kind of access, then the YouTube suggestion is an excellent one. The visual for technique and prep is there and the number of recipes endless. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrECJ5...
this site is a treasure trove of information both by region and cuisine.
this blog is a delight!
