Kismet Kulture Klub
club met at Chris Jenk’s house, following our new
tradition of serving foods that match the ethnicity of the book read “The Space
Between Us” about Indian women
prepared a meal, which took hours, of authentic Indian cuisine. She wore an
Indian garment and the table was set with Indian fabric. It was delicious. She
also showed us slides she took of the actual Indian slums where some of the
action took place.
read, well fed!
Here are 3 of the 4 recipes from
Saturday, as promised. I also recommend "5 Spices, 50 Dishes"
by Ruta Kahate, who was our
tour guide and who teaches Indian Cooking in San Francisco
This is a
typical dal, which, in India would be made using
split and skinned chick peas but canned works just as well.
2 TBS oil
(canola or olive)
yellow onion finely chopped
coriander seeds finely ground
finely grated fresh garlic
finely grated fresh ginger
tomato finely chopped or 1 small can of diced tomatoes
1 15.5 oz
can chickpeas (garbanzo beans) drained
in medium saucepan and sauté the onion over medium heat until softened, about 5
minutes. Add cayenne, coriander,
garlic, ginger and turmeric; stir 3 – 4 minutes. Mix in tomato and cook until soft,
about 5 minutes. Add chickpeas,
water and salt and simmer until soft and tender, 5 – 8 minutes. Serve
warm. Serves 4.
Tandoori Chicken with Yogurt Sauce
1 C plain
salt and ground pepper
skinless chicken breasts (or, as I did, 10 chicken tenders)
chopped fresh cilantro
oven to 475°. In large bowl, mix ½ C
yogurt, garlic, turmeric, ginger, 2 tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper. Add chicken and coat (I marinated
overnight to enhance flavor)
to rimmed backing dish and roast 25 – 3 minutes.
grate apples into bowl and add cilantro and remaining ½ C yogurt; season
w/salt and pepper. Serve sauce
alongside chicken and w/rice, if desired.
Crunchy Cucumber Salad with
or other unwaxed cucumbers chopped or diced
green Serrano chili, minced
C peanuts, preferably raw, but toasted and unsalted will do
to ¾ tsp sugar
or more cayenne
(canola or olive)
tsp mustard seeds
Put diced cukes and chiles in bowl.
Pulse peanuts until reduced to a coarse powder (not too fine but not big
chunks). Add peanuts, lemon juice,
salt and sugar; mix well. Taste
and adjust salt, sugar and lemon as needed. Should be slightly tart.
cayenne in little pile on top of salad. Do not stir in yet. Heat
the oil in a small skillet over high; when it begins to smoke, add the mustard
seeds (cover with splatter screen or you will have a mess!). As soon as seeds stop sputtering, pour
the oil over the cayenne and stir the dressing into the salad mixture. Serve at room temperature or cold.
