I have always been a fan of Indian Food – mainly curries… My mum introduced it in our diet when she found a ready made curry powder that you only needed to add milk and dinner was done. Typical of my mother, anything to make cooking easy and fast. But guess what? It was quite good 🙂 But of course, nothing compares to a proper curry where you mix your own spices.
For a long time, my Indian experience was only that, curries, and only after leaving the country I was introduced to other dishes from this exotic part of the World. We have Indian restaurants back home but it’s not a popular cuisine. At least is wasn’t when I was there! I’m sure things have changed because I can see a lot more ethnic restaurants when I visit my home town.
In the UK, I learned about spices that I never used before and the different ways of combining them. i tried new dishes and flavours which made me more and more curious about this type of cuisine. So I’m always on the look out for new recipes as I really like the flavours.
I found this recipe for Chicken Legs roasted Indian style with Lemon Couscous on the Food Network website and it seemed so simple and delicious that I had to try it 🙂
