Pure bliss for connoisseurs of spicy Indian food, I came up with this recipe one evening when I didn't feel like spending time on the net or reading. The result was a fantastic and fiery dish that I have every reason to be proud of — modest girl that I am. If only the local Indian restaurants cooked up a variety of dishes instead of staying with the same menu for years on end without even offering daily specials. Though there are some good Indian restaurants in London, their offerings are restricted to North Indian dishes which is a shame as I really enjoy dishes from various regions of India.
Thankfully, I have a decent knowledge of the art of vegetarian Indian cuisine and can make whatever I choose in my own kitchen. My kitchen is overflowing with spices, including homemade spice blends and pastes. Meals made at home are much better and more economical besides. A varied menu is the motto in my kitchen because your taste buds will thank you, and a well-balanced vegetarian diet should always include a variety of different legumes, grains, dairy and vegetables.
For those new to Indian cooking, a masala is essentially a blend of spices, most often dry roasted, or a paste made up of spices and other ingredients. The tomato sauce with the coconut paste would also go well over rice or with dumplings or vegetables without the eggs.
Serve with rice and homemade rotis.
