If you are new to Indian cooking, this is the best dish as your baby step.

Almost the simplest Indian dish i’ve cooked by far. Best of all, children will love it and it isn’t spicy too. When we had this, i didn’t cook any rice to go with it. Instead, i took it a notch further and made it fun for the boys with some kick ass naan. I don’t know about your children but my kids, they love love love naan. They never fail to hang around the kitchen to steal a bite or two whenever i’m not looking. Hmph! — but i quite like it like that *grin*. So naan is a must to start the boys on Indian food (for my family that is). That together with hard boiled eggs? It was hard for them to resist. ;)
