Butter Chicken Lasagna

Butter Chicken Lasagna

The idea of an Indian lasagna jumped into my head, so I googled butter chicken lasagna and stumbled across this recipe from the Canadian Food Network. In the end it took me a lot longer to make than I originally anticipated, but it was a labor of love to create a more elaborate meal for…

Pumpkin Chicken Curry with Homemade Naan

Pumpkin Chicken Curry with Homemade Naan

I bet you can guess what Dustin’s initial reaction to this dish was. “Pumpkin?” again. But just to be fair this pumpkin dish didn’t have any cinnamon or ginger, but rather was spiced up with lots and lots of curry powder. We didn’t have super high expectations from this dish, but we were absolutely blown…

Indian Spiced Salmon

Indian Spiced Salmon

After his mom made him something similar back in Texas, Dustin told me we should make salmon with our favorite Indian spices. When we saw the first of the Copper River salmon hit the grocery store, we bought it, squeezed on a little lemon juice and spiced it with garam masala, and extra cumin and…

Slow Cooker Cinnamon & Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

Slow Cooker Cinnamon & Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

There’s a restaurant called Vij’s in Vancouver that is super famous for creative, high-class Indian food; it has been called the best Indian food in North America. We wanted to go on our trip, but they don’t take reservations. It’s apparently so good that people will drive all the way from Seattle just to eat…

Indian Lamb Burgers

Indian Lamb Burgers

Delicious way to use up leftover Indian take out? Indian burgers using the delicious sauces from your favorite Indian restaurant. For us, that’s India Gate’s tikka masala and raita. We doused our garam masala-coated lamb burgers in both of these sauces, and piled it on top of grilled Macrina buns with some sliced white onion.…

Indian Spiced Halibut + Mango Chutney

Indian Spiced Halibut + Mango Chutney

This dish was supposed to be over a bed of wild rice, but I got so focused on making the chutney and Dustin was so focused on the fish that we both totally forgot to get the rice on the stove at an appropriate time. By the time we did remember, it would have completely…

Today’s dish is a wonderful Indian staple with beautiful spices, delectable chicken, and a wonderful sauce to spoon up your rice or naan with. I…

Saag Paneer

Saag Paneer

We have absolutely fallen in love with Indian food after living in Seattle. Dustin even took me to an Indian cooking class for a birthday present in December. Now we’ve decided to experiment with Indian cooking at home. We stocked up on all of the spices, and boy, do they make the apartment smell wonderful.…

Tikka Masala Pizza

Tikka Masala Pizza

We’ve found a really tasty Indian restaurant near our place that has quickly become one of our go-to places for takeout. We stuff ourselves with a ridiculous amount of food, and we have a few tried and true favorites we always have to get— chicken tikka masala, vegetable samoas drenched in this ridiculously good, creamy…

Coconut Chicken Vindaloo Tacos

Coconut Chicken Vindaloo Tacos

Before Dustin and I really started experimenting with our food, we made the same six or seven dishes over and over again. Pretty much every week we made some sort of chicken taco dish, one of our favorites. One version was a sour cream chicken taco where we’d finish cooking the chunks of chicken in…
