    Lip Smacking Chicken (houw could I not) with Spiced Potato Cakes – because I read a book that talked about cumin adn potatoes so much I craved them, but my wing-it attempt was not so magical. Edible, but not magical.

    Indian food was readily available where I used to live. Now I live in a place that has many positive attributes but culinary diversity is not one of them. I never tried paneer but since I love dairy, the recipe for "Home-made paneer" intrigues me most.
