Winter Warmers: Indian Food

If only we celebrated the new year on July 1.  If we did, I think people would feel much more successful in their diet resolutions.  It’s easy to exist mostly on salads in the summer; it’s much harder in the middle of the winter when the weather person is giving you the wind chill and you make both your commutes in the dark.

I find Indian foods to be a great solution to this problem.  The spice is perfect for clearing the sinuses (my husband always wants Indian food when he feels sick) and warm curries feel like the ultimate comfort food, while still being full of vegetables.

Two of my favorite cookbooks focus on Indian food.  Vegan Indian Cooking and The Indian Slow Cooker by Anupy Singla are user-friendly introductions to this cuisine.  Many of Singla’s recipes can also be found online at her blog Indian as Apple Pie.

This palak “paneer” from Vegan Indian Cooking is a great example of what I love about her recipes.  The dish tastes like what I used to get in Indian food restaurants, while being dairy-free (the “paneer” is baked tofu) and not daunting to make.
