    I love Japanese curry. But I want to eat the real thing. What Indian Dish gave rise to Japanese curry which is a curry sauce with meat and vegetables poured over white rice. Can I order this at most Indian Restaurants?

    I LOVE going out for Indian food, but the few times I have attempted making it, it has been very disappointing. Any tips, techniques, or recipes? Also, where is the best place to get Indian spices?

    We’re having a big family dinner this weekend, and my sister is serving chicken curry with jasmine rice. What are some ideas for a good side dish, appetizer, or dessert that I can make to go along with it?

    I went to England with my grandmother several years ago,and we ate at an indian resturant.I had chicken and almond curry over rice. I have never tasted anything else quite like it since. It was wonderful.Thanks for any ideas.

    I ate this at an Indian party and I loved it. But I don’t know them well enough to call and ask how they made it.
    Can anyone give me all directions starting from scratch?

    I’m talking about this curry powder that you find in Indian grocery stores. I’m looking for some recipes to cook chicken with it. Unfortunately, I don’t have an oven so don’t tell me any baking recipes!
