I lOVE Indian food. Anyone have any good recipes? Northern Indian is my favorite, with some of my favorite dishes being Punjabi Chohle (no idea how to spell), Kofta Curry, and Veggie Pakora.
But anything would be great :)

do you have a dehydrator?

One thing I invented is Curry Vegetables, make coconut milk (as you would almond milk, but with mature coconut meat rather than almonds, then blend and strain). Add curry powder and jalapeno if you want it spicy, and pour this sauce over your choice of vegetables like broccoli, peppers, bok choy, carrots, peas, etc.
I also have a spinach cream curry which is great and tandori nut balls (need dehydrator). It's late here so I'll post these tomorrow.

I took this sag paneer recipe and "made it raw" by massaging/slightly dehydrating the spinach and marinated the onions/spices/oil.... took out any non-raw ingredients. I also substituted cream/yogurt/etc... for cashew cream. It was really good, not exactly like the real deal, but VERY good.
Also, I then blended half the misture, and mixed it all together to get the creamy consistency.

Here are 2 from the recipe book I'm writing.
Indian Spinach Curry
A quick & delicious Indian spinach curry.
3 cups spinach or baby spinach
1 ½ cups water or coconut water
¼ cups olive oil
1 ½ t ginger
1 ¼ t cumin
¼ t cardamom
1 t coriander
¼ t turmeric
½ t garam masala
½ t jalapeno
1 t Celtic salt
Put spinach in food processor and pulse to chop to bit size pieces, repeat with the broccoli. Set chopped spinach and broccoli in a bowl. Blend all remaining ingredients until smooth, and pour over chopped vegetables.
Indian Nut Balls
Crispy, rich and satisfying Indian nut balls
1.5 cup walnuts, soaked (6-8 hours)
1.5 cup almonds, soaked (6-8 hours)
¾ cup sun dried tomatoes, soaked (1 hour)
¾ cup onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 T curry powder
1 t jalapeno
1 t Celtic salt
Process all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Shape into 1 inch balls on dehydrator mesh and dehydrate for 12-14 hours at 105°f/40°c, until crispy on the outside.

do a board search for Kofta curry, that is good.
make sure you use very ripe & sweet,very RED toms, or it comes out a bit sour.
i also made a cooked curry recipe in my dehydrator.
i justput all the ingredients in the blender for the sauce, mixed in the cauli & dehydrated for a couple hours.

oh,i also made the kofta ball curry with a mushroom base ball, with some walnuts.
a bit lighter & not so nut heavy...really good!
