I just got another of Mark Reinfeld’s cookbooks out from the library on my Kindle: The 30-Minute Vegan’s Taste of the East: 150 Asian-Inspired Recipes. The first section covers Indian foods, and I’ve been wanting to learn to cook some Indian dishes because I love the flavors.
The recipes look very approachable so far, as they were in The 30-Minute Vegan. Things to try: The Tofu Tikka Masala and maybe the Dosa Bread (good for a weekend).
I wonder where I can get ingredients like asafetida, curry leaves, tamarind, and a good deal on red lentils (which always seem more expensive)? For the spices, probably not in Bend, as we’re lacking an Indian or Asian market. Online, if I plan ahead.
