                I got this from a gong fu brother of mine after we got back from trinidad, actually it comes from a cigar buddy of mine but the gong fu brother stamps his approval.

                he says:
                Curry powder is as variable as curry. In other words, to your own spec. But generally I'd make a spice mixture and convert it into a paste by mortaring it with a combination of mustard oil and vegetable oil.

                The base should be a good garam masala mixture.
                Then chilis - I'd use the fierce little red and green ones rather than the stronger Habanero which I don't think you find on the subcontinent. Dried chilis are fine, better than powder.
                Mustard seeds, black onion seeds. Asafoetida. Ginger. Garlic.
                Black pepper.
                And for nuances - clove, cinnamon, cardamom, to taste.
                Turmeric can add some colour.

                Tamarind's excellent if you make a curry paste.

                  I eat Indian at least once a week and this is what I get:

                  Vegetarian variety
                  Though the menu is decidedly uncarnivorous, there’s enough variety and subtle seasonings here to ensure that no one will miss the meat. For many of Pushap’s devout patrons, ordering is as easy as one, two, thali! For $5, thali specials are an affordable and nutritious choice, providing a full meal on a metal plate with divided sections designed to contain different offerings. Pushap’s thalis usually feature two vegetable curries of the day—eggplant or cauliflower, for example—plus a protein-rich dahl. Unpretentious dishes are rounded out with a choice nan, paratha and other flatbreads.

                  This is from the restaurant's web site

                          Indian Food - Yummy

                          This is one of my favorites - not too exotic - just different spicesThis is a classic side dish but can be eaten on its own with naan bread or chapatis/rotis and goes well with Indian pickles and chutneys. This is a low fat version which does not use oil or ghee. This dish can be prepared in advance and reheated just before serving.

                          Preparation time: Approx 15 minutes, Cooking time: Approx 30 minutes

                          (serves 4)

                          Main Ingredients:

                          1/2lb Potatoes
                          14oz fresh or frozen spinach
                          scant 1/3 cup chopped tomatoes

                          Ground Spices:

                          1/2 teaspoon Natco Chilli Powder
                          1/4 teaspoon Natco Turmeric

                          Additional Spices:

                          1/2 teaspoon Natco Cumin Seeds
                          1/4 teaspoon Natco Fenugreek (Methi) Seeds


                          1. Weigh spinach after you have removed the stems and chopped it. Wash thoroughly and drain in colander. If using frozen spinach, defrost and squeeze out excess water before weighing.

                          2. Scrub the potataoes (don't peel them). Cut into small chunks.

                          3. Using a good, heavy non-stick frying pan add the seeds and dry fry (without oil) to release their flavour. Watch this carefully, they will only need a few seconds. Don't let them scorch. If they burn, throw them away and start again.

                          4. When they are hot, add the tomato, turmeric and chilli powder (salt is optional). Mix and cook for 30 seconds.

                          5. Add the spinach and potatoes and mix well to coat with the spices.

                          6. Cover pan and simmer for 15-20 minutes. The dish should consist of a thick sauce coating the potatoes. If there is still too much moisture, remove the lid and let it dry out a little by cooking rapidly over a medium heat for a few minutes.

                            This is the recipe for a delicious eggplant dish - Baigan Bharta


                            Eggplant (medium size) 1
                            Cooked green peas 1/2 cup
                            Finely chopped onions 1
                            Finely chopped tomatoes 1
                            Finely chopped green chilli 1
                            Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp.
                            Garam Masala Powder 1/2 tsp.
                            Turmeric Powder 1/4 tsp.
                            Vegetable oil 3 tbsp.
                            Salt to taste
                            Chopped green coriander leaves for garnishing


                            1. Brush eggplant with oil and roast it on a gas burner over medium heat.
                            2. Frequently turn the eggplant upside down, until fully roasted.
                            3. Once done, hold it under cold running water or in a bowl full of water. Cool it and peel off the blackened skin.
                            4. Mash the flesh.
                            5. Heat oil in a pan / kadhai . Add green chilli and onion and fry over medium heat until light golden brown.
                            6. Add red chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala and salt and stir. Add tomatoes and cook until tender.
                            7. Add green peas and mashed eggplant. Stir well. Fry for 5-7 minutes over medium heat.

                            Garnish with green coriander leaves and serve hot.

                              and for those chicken lovers - had this for lunch yesterday

                              CHICKEN TANDOORI I

                              1 c. yogurt
                              2 c. tikka tandoori paste (you can get one from Indian grocery store)
                              Fresh tomatoes
                              Onions &amp; coriander leaves
                              2 lbs. chicken pieces

                              Mix the tandoori paste and yogurt well. Marinate the chicken pieces well for about 4 to 6 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the chicken pieces along with the marinate into a baking pan and bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until chicken is done. Keep turning the chicken pieces a few times while baking. Garnish with slices of tomatoes, onion rings and coriander leaves. Serve with rice pilaf.
