I've probably tried dozens of different "restaurant" style indian dishes, but they never come out even remotely like the good dishes I've had at some nicer Indian restaurants around here. That said, I do enjoy the more authentic recipes a lot as well, but it would be nice to make some good western style Indian food occasionally. I can only assume that I'm doing something wrong and that other factors like the quantity and cooking times used at restaurants differ a lot from what I do at home.
>>7257005 milk baths hav existed for years, turmeric is proven to be good for your skin, flour too. Not sure about curry powder but I'm sure if their culture has been doing it for generations, they know probably something you don't
Boil some rice Take tumeric, curry, cilantro and corriander Add to rice Let rest fry up some chicken with onions, peppers, carrot, broccoli, whatever. Then add the spiced rice to the chicken and veggies. Fry that shit up for a good bit.
it's as simple as curry powder and water with ingredients, fry up the vegetables, meaning ABSOLUTELY onions and garlic and whatever else fits, throw in the curry powder by itself with the veges to cook and get flavor in there, then fry the meat until relatively cooked and add some water then let it simmer for a long time.

Have you literally been living under a rock all of your life? Shit like that happens daily in african/islamic countries. There's even been several group rape cases in India that made worldnews the last couple years.
>>7257285 that person said to just accept it because it's been done for generations... things like this shouldn't be said and it can have a bigger effect than you realize. he's right for getting angry about this.
>>7257310 I didn't even say accept it. I just told him not to completely write it off without doing his own research. You're acting as if researching >HARMLESS< folk remedies condones female genitalia mutilation. Get out of here with those crocodile tears.
>>7257320 >You're acting as if researching >HARMLESS< folk remedies condones female genitalia mutilation. yeah no, i'm saying that telling people "they've done it for a long time so they know something you don't" is a bad thing to say
>>7257201 >>7257224 >>7257236 sorry for living in college and not wanting to have to stock an entire array of spices, I'll stick to my cheap spice mix I got at an indian place that works perfectly fine, at least I cook meals unlike half the threads on this board asking what people's favorite junk food and precooked ramen is. >>7257269 while curry isn't a dish, a lot of dishes in india that would be considered curry use similar spices to eachother with a few variations or different additions, it's pure autistic semantics to say you can't refer to a cooked meat stew with spices as a curry. "lol did ya know that salsa means sauce in spanish" yes we fucking do, but I'm going to continue to refer to salsa as a tomato based sauce with onions and cilantro and such, that's what people understand and what most people want when they ask for it.
>>7260586 >mods are literally the biggest cock sucking faggots in the galaxy holy shit Can you enlighten me as to why? And why are you posting it in this thread that hasn't been bumped in like 12 hours?
If you're interested in making it yourself: It depends on where you live, but if there's any Indian food shops around you can usually pick up a variety of cheap, interesting spices that'll be a good base.
If you want to make takeaway style curry, look up some recipes for a base sauce. It's basically loads of onions and other vegetables slowly simmered with some spices then blended. It's a quick way to add a lot of flavour to a dish.
Be aware that some of their dishes you'd get in a restaurant will use some food colouring so in some cases your recipes won't look so interesting - will taste as good though.
Look up local Indian food restaurants. Try out some of their stuffs. Indian food is vegetarian heaven, literally. Tons of tasty, healthy, and filling food without needing meat. Of course, there are meat-based Indian dishes, but the abundance of vegetarian diets makes it a very vegetarian friendly place. Even people that eat heavy meat food should find Indian foods to be tasty/filling. Just remember to check how spicy they are. There are spiciness level that should be considered.
Also, don't eat Indian food too much as its too fattening. I usually order Indian food 2x a month.
I do love Indian food, but almost all 'Indian' food in the UK is the same oily, heavy, tomato based curries that aren't at all authentic, and 90% of the chefs actually hail from Bangladesh. Would like a chance to try more authentic regional dishes desu.
