    I like this cauliflower/chickpea masala except I usually add more spices than the recipe calls for

    This one is also a favorite
    https://www.budgetbytes.com/creamy-coconut-curry-lentils-with-spinach/

    I need to spend some time on this site! Would Greek yogurt possibly replace the cream or coconut milk? Wouldn't use the first for anything else and don't care for coconut but really want to make Indian food!

    I think yogurt would possibly replace the cream in the lentils, but it would have a really different flavor. I think it would probably be good, just different. You could use light coconut milk. The recipe doesn't have a coconutty flavor if that's the issue, but if you just don't like coconut milk, try yogurt.

    I do love that recipe site. There's such a variety and most of the recipes are super easy to make and to customize. I have learned that I like more spice and more salt than most of the recipes call for so I adapt them that way. I make the cajun chicken pasta at least once a week, but I always add half again as much spice, for example.

    This is Thai rather than Indian but still curry and amazing! I think I got it from the Toronto Star many years ago.
    You can change up the curry to add or reduce heat. I sometimes used cilantro instead of basil. I add the peppers just in the last 5-10 minutes so they stay tender-crisp.

    Thai Coconut Beef and Peppers

    Beef

    Ingredients:
    2 lb stewing beef
    2 tsp sesame oil
    2 tbsp brown sugar
    1 tbsp red curry paste
    14 oz coconut milk
    1 each green and red pepper
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 cup fresh basil
    1 tbsp lime juice

    Directions:
    Heat sesame oil and brown beef
    Place in crockpot
    Mix together coconut, sugar, curry and pour over
    Cook in slow cooker for 6-8 hours
    In last half hour or so add julienned peppers. Stir in basil and lime
    Serve over rice.
    Good with mango side salad.

    Here is mine... I make this a lot. Involves mostly pantry ingredients so it's easy to throw together when you don't have anything else planned, but you can obviously add vegetables, greens, meat, beans etc if you want. I make this on a weekly basis for my son who is still doing virtual school.

    I just quickly did the Dal recipe my Indian mother in law taught me and it comes to only 58 cal a serve if serving 4, but honestly for us it lasts about 6-8.

    The best restaurant in Tucson (you would think Mexican, right? But you would be wrong!) is actually an Indian place. It's amazing. My favorite dish there (and I've tried nearly all of them) is Chicken Bhuna. This looks very similar to it.

    This one is pretty spicy, but oh so good if made right.

    Malabar is my wife's favorite. Not as hot/spicy as Bhuna, more savory and mustardy.

    My son goes there every time he's in town and orders the Chicken Tikka Masala. He said it's the best he's ever had and it doesn't even hold a candle to these other two dishes. They are that good. I have a feeling Tikka Masala is what all Americans get when they go to an Indian restaurant. Kind of like the Pad Thai of Thai food. It's unfortunate, because when you really are more adventurous, you get so rewarded with unexpected dishes that you fall in love with.
