As westerners, we are fascinated with the exotic spices and ingredients that are common in India and its surrounding countries. Join us Wednesday, February 11 at the Holy Nativity Community Hall in Westchester as we explore some new dishes that will allow you to explore some new flavors and techniques without having to stock a whole new pantry. You will enjoy the combination of these recipes that will become favorites in your kitchen.
- Fish Curry (Meen Kulambu) made with cod or a flaky white fish.
- Chicken Passanda made with yogurt, almond meal and spices is from the northeastern region of India bordering Nepal.
- Perfect Basmati Rice
- Lemon Rice from South India will be a perfect complement to our Fish Curry.

- Chickpea Curry (Chana Masala) can be made with dried or canned garbanzos, making this an easy weeknight meal.
