Vegetarian Indian Curry Tofu Pot Pie Recipe

Vegetarian Indian Curry Tofu Pot Pie

04.15.09 by Jackie

A pot pie is a medley of vegetables and meat in a thick sauce, wrapped in a pie crust. I love chicken pot pie. Unfortunately, I can never share this meal with my hubby Lulu since he's a vegetarian. I always try to adapt what i eat to Lulu's dietary restrictions. Today, I tested a fusion pot pie based on the sauce from my Ma-Po tofu recipe and a curry sauce. I added fried tofu for the protein, and included shitake mushrooms with the vegetables that traditionally go into this English dish.

Of course, if you love meat like me, you could substitute cooked chicken for the tofu.

Lima Beans Paneer and Saffron Basmati Rice (Vegetarian Biryani) Recipe

Lima Beans Paneer and Saffron Basmati Rice (Vegetarian Biryani)

03.24.09 by Jackie

Vegetarian biryani is a vegetable curry with saffron basmati rice. This dish is truly authentic Indian cuisine. I always make Biryani when we have a big crowd at home. Indian food is meant to be eaten by a big group.

Paneer is an Indian cheese that you commonly fry and add to rice or vegetables. It is pretty firm and does not melt when heated. The kids love vegetarian biryani and the saffron color brings a nice ...The same dish, when prepared with meat (usually mutton, goat or chicken), is traditional wedding fare.  One of Lulu's uncles told me that if he goes to a large Indian function and doesn't get biryani he feels cheated.

Indian-Style Pearl Onion Confit Upside-Down Tart (Tarte Tatin de Petits Oignons Perles a l'Indienne) Recipe

Indian-Style Pearl Onion Confit Upside-Down Tart (Tarte Tatin de Petits Oignons Perles a l'Indienne)

03.04.09 by Jackie

The tarte tatin (upside-down tart) was originally made with caramelized apples. It was created by the Tatin sisters at the beginning of the century. The two demoiselles Tatin, Fanny and Caroline, ran a little eatary in a hotel in Sologne, in the countryside of France near Orleans. They were famous for their apple tarts. One day, one of the sisters clumsily forgot to place the puff pastry dough and put the caramelized apple layer first and that's how a fortunate mistake created the trendy dish.

A French way to make an onion confit would be with caramelized onions that were previously boiled in milk but I had some leftover curried pearl onions called do-pyaaza. It's cooked in a generous amount of ghee, yogurt and flavored with ginger-garlic paste and several Indian spices. My fusion result is called a tarte tatin de petits oignons perlés à  l'Indienne.

You may not think so, but tandoori chicken is an easy and fast meal to prepare. Just marinate the meat overnight or at least for 4 hours and place in the oven. You can also use chicken breast but I think the leg pieces are more tender, moist and flavorful. Your choice of course.
