Tonight I made a couple Indian dishes which Kim and I shared with Chris and John. It was fun because I made as many of the ingredients from scratch as possible. First I made ghee (clarified butter) and then I ground my own garam masala (a blend of spices used in many Indian dishes). Finally I made paneer, a type of soft cheese. Then, using these ingredients I made Mutter Paneer (peas and cheese) and Tandoori Chicken. From the Tandoori Chicken I made Butter Chicken. This all turned out pretty well and was a lot of fun. However it was a ton of work so I don't think I'll be doing it too often.
