What Are Some Traditional Indian Recipes?

Some traditional Indian recipes include reshmi kebab, a grilled ground chicken dish on skewers, and roomali roti, a type of flatbread. To make reshmi kebab, combine 1 1/4 pound of ground chicken, 2 tablespoons of garlic, 2 tablespoons of ginger and 1 tablespoon of hot paprika, and let it sit for 30 minutes.

In a separate bowl, pour boiling water over 1/4 cup of blanched almonds, let it soak for 10 minutes, and then drain and transfer them to a food processor. To the food processor, add 1 1/2 tablespoons of heavy cream, 1 tablespoon of garam masala, 3/4 teaspoon of ground cardamom, 3/4 teaspoon of ground allspice and 1 lightly beaten egg white. Puree the ingredients, and then add them to the chicken.

Heat 2 tablespoons of canola oil, and add 1 minced yellow onion. Cook the onion until it caramelizes, approximately eight minutes. Add the chicken, and season the mix with salt and pepper. Form the meat around 6 skewers, and cook them over a grill until charred on both sides, about four to five minutes.

To make roomali roti, sift together 2 cups of bread flour and 1 teaspoon of salt. Work in 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil until the mixture has a crumbly texture, and then pour in 2/3 cup of water. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until elastic, and then cover and allow it to set for 45 minutes.

Knead the dough again until it has a smooth consistency, and then portion it into six pieces. Roll each piece until flat, and then sprinkle flour on each side. Cook the dough on a cast-iron pan until small black spots form on each side, about 40 to 50 seconds.
