Sheth adds that, if you're going for chicken, you're better off choosing a tandoori-style dish than chicken tikka masala, since its yogurt and spice marinade is lighter than the heavy or thickened cream you'd find in a tikka masala dish. Additionally, she recommends going light on the naan as well as samosas and pakoras, given all the refined flour these foods contain.

Unless you're constipated or your doctor recommends explosive diarrhea, there is no healthy Indian food.

If you're in the market for actually healthy Indian(ish) food that's tasty as all get out, try this:

https://www.skinnytaste.com/cauliflow​e​r-rice-chicken-biryani/

It's really easy to make, and I can't believe there's a recipe that makes me crave cauliflower rice.

Having lived in India, I experience a state of gastro-intestinal distress for nine months.  India has a rather high prevalence for diabetes because their diet is high in carbs and low in protein and a tendency to use ghee.  So lololol, my experience with Indian food it is absolutely not healthy.

I like chana masala and palak paneer, but I do not feel like they're healthy after I stuff my gaping maw with them and end up feeling bloated on the couch.

That's on me tho'.

it's healthier if you call it chicken makhani.

You lived there for that long and didn't realize that a nation of over 1,300,000,000 people don't all follow the same diet? Remarkable.

I've never experienced good Indian food. It seems strange because I like curry in Thai food. For whatever reason, every time I go for Indian food it seems kind of bland and strange tasting and the nan always has char on it and I feel like I'm eating sandpaper.

Not going to play the contest, but saag dahl is my favorite... basically a slurried spinach sauce with spices. Farking awesome.

And yes, I look somewhat like Popeye, and I could use some olive oil as well.

Chicken Tikka Masala is a great starter dish for people who are new to Indian food. I prefer a chicken methi for a not too spicy dish. I also can eat way too much dal makhani. I would not call it healthy food but it is so damn tasty.

Does anyone know the name of the dry-ish okra and potato dish? I say dry-ish because it can get a bit greasy sometimes. Usually too salty but oh so tasty.
 
2021-07-18 6:09:19 PM  
Timely. Its tandoori-style chicken, simple veg curry, naan and brown basmati for dinner tonight.

One of my favorite go tos at the local Indian vegetarian resto. The chana samosa. Chana masala with a crushed samosa on top, yogurt and fresh coriander...I call it indian poutine.

not sure if ~okra, but "dry" tindi ka batata nu shaak (these are all weird ass-Guj'rati words, ymmv) is among my favoritest of the things: potato tindora curry. I can cook that stuff straight from memory, one of the things for which I can thank my ex-wife's Auntie lol.

(obvs. not my photo)

tindola is a small bitter gourd and it is farking delicioso. ditto "drumstick" - both of those are a kinda-sorta okra-alike? (except so much easier to cook in a non-slimy fashion, ah tellyu whut)

$mai_waifu is finally/eventually getting tired of her usual malai-kofta, and I keep harping on "dude, c'mon, tikka masala is the farking official dish of the UK jeez just try it on already" - maybe we'll get there someday soon.

Bring it all. Medium hot. Haven't found any Indian food I did not like. Had it yesterday for lunch.

As my friend used to say, when asked if he wanted to eat something he'd never had before, "Will it make a turd?"

So you have inspired me to not be so lazy and actually look up the dish on the website of the restaurant that I used to frequent a lot in the before times.

The okra and potato dish I am thinking about is Aloo Bhindi Masala. Some versions have a lot of tomato gravy, and I think it is probably good, but the Mogul Indian Restaurant near JSC serves it dryer like this pic:

oh hells to the yeah! bhindi is good stuff. well, when my ex-Auntie makes it, not me, ha. and I say this as someone who loves/hates okra, and who is entirely incapable of cooking okra lol (also why myself is fine with cooking tindora or drumstick instead, it's close enough and unpossible to slime-ify)

If done right its one hell of a comfort food. I am sort of sorry you can' t have one now but any indian joint should be able to whip that out for you. Its very stick to the ribs however so I dont recommend for a really hot day.

I made butter chicken last night (technically a chicken tikka masala with added butter and cream because I am a fat bastard). Marinated and roasted the deboned chicken, tossed it through the spiced sauce on the stove, served with basmati rice cooked with saffron, chicken stock and whole garam masala. Delicious.

There was also that time where I drank a glass of vindaloo sauce for breakfast as a dare because we saw Dave Lister do it on Red Dwarf. I have no regrets.

Chana masala is the absolute bomb.

But I could really go for some goat or lamb curry right now.  Just a saucy meat pile.

Thank you for the thoughts and info, and I am definitely going to chase this one down.
Unfortunately, I haven't been out for food in a year or two and the Indian place I did go to closed.
There will be opportunities though, even if it is in my own kitchen. *has recipe already*

I currently work at a kitchen for Indian-Bengali cuisine, none of that westernized bullsh*t with these guys, I had to try a bitter melon dish yesterday and gotta wonder how regionalized tastes get started zomg.

interesting to learn so much about the food though, hands on.
just wish we had an actual clay oven for our own naan.

that would be pretty pimpin
