Dear reader,

If you enjoy Indian food, you have to try some of these dishes. Most of them are easy to make. If you haven't tried Indian food yet and you enjoy spicy food, then you also have to try some of these recipes. They are often rich in butter or cream, but you can easily make them healthier and dairy-free by using coconut milk (a gluten-free brand, of course).

I hope you enjoy them. They're all favorites in my house.

Happy and healthy gluten-free cooking!

Image: Gluten Free Chicken Korma

I have been wanting to develop a gluten free chicken korma recipe for quite some time, now. It is my favorite Indian dish next to butter chicken. Chicken korma is a spicy Indian dish using turmeric or curry plus other spices. Along with cream, it creates a rich, flavorful dish. You can adjust the heat in this gluten free chicken korma by reducing the cayenne pepper, ginger, and coriander, if necessary. It is of medium heat for an Indian dish, though if not accustomed to Indian food, you may think it is hot. Indian food contains many anti-inflammatory spices, making it a smart choice for an entree.

Image: Indian Chicken with Coconut Almond Sauce

Hippocrene Books sent me a review copy of Indian Inspired Gluten-Free Cooking by Alamelu Vairavan and Margaret Pfeiffer along with two gluten free recipes to share with you. Since I am allergic to coconut and tomatoes, I wasn't able to make this dish myself, but thought you would appreciate a coconut and tomato recipe once in awhile. Just looking at the photo had me desiring it immediately. It reminds me of butter chicken, without the butter, which is my favorite Indian dish.

Oven-Baked Gluten Free Naan

Naan is the Indian version of flatbread. There are two versions, crisp/firm and the one I prefer, soft. The soft is to-die-for and is the only version I make! Everyone who has tried my skillet version raves about it. If you have a pizza stone, that version is even better! That's all I make during the fall and winter. To avoid my kitchen from over-heating, I use the stovetop version during the summer months.

Gluten Free Spicy Indian Fries

I have been on a spicy food kick lately. Can't explain it, but these gluten free french fries hit the spot! I have been really enjoying experimenting with cultural food. I never thought I would ever eat spicy fries, but I loved these! This gluten free recipe was inspired by a recipe in Food and Wine magazine, and is naturally gluten-free. You can adjust the oil or use an oil of your liking. You can also adjust the heat of the spices.

Image: Fried Black Bean Patties

I adore Indian food. Luckily for me, Hippocrene Books publishing sent me a review copy of Indian Inspired Gluten-Free Cooking by Alamelu Vairavan and Margaret Pfeiffer. They also sent along two recipes to share with you. This black bean patties recipe is perfect for lunch or those nights you want to go meat-free. It's so flavorful, yet moderate in heat/spice. If desired, you can tone down the heat down further by deceasing the cayenne pepper. You can always add more later. If you use a dairy-free sour cream substitute, it can be a vegetarian and dairy-free delight, as well. Stay tuned for the second recipe from Indian Inspired Gluten-Free Cooking tomorrow, and the review of the cookbook along with a giveaway the following day. Meanwhile, enjoy this delicious recipe!

Spicy Indian Green Beans

I have served my Chicken Korma Recipe a number of times, but usually accompanied it with plain vegetables. Recently, I decided to spice those up a little. You control the spice level. Using 1/8 teaspoon provides an ever so light amount heat. While 1/4 teaspoon is perfect for us. You may prefer 1/2 teaspoon. Enjoy this flavorful Indian green beans recipe with your favorite Indian food.

Gluten Free Butter Chicken Indian
While in India, butter chicken is served with bone-in chicken, you may use boneless, and cut it into cubes. You marinate this butter chicken Indian recipe overnight in a spicy yogurt marinade, which makes it particularly delicious. Enjoy!
