Indian Mango Salsa
There are hundreds of varieties of mangoes, but this sweet and spicy salsa uses the Kesar variety from India (where it is known as the queen of mangoes). Kesar mangoes are intensely sweet and only available for a few weeks each year. If you can get your hands on some, use them — they’re so delicious — but any ripe mango will work.

Indian Coconut Chicken

Indian Summer Cocktail
The Farm to Shaker event theme directly inspired The Indian Summer cocktail. I'm very culinary and garden-driven in my approach to cocktails. My favorite ingredients to use are those that can both stand alone and have the versatility to cross over from food to drink, such as fresh herbs.This recipe is courtesy of Angela Laino.

Kheema
Nearly everyone I've made this dish for describes it as “Indian chili,” and true to its comfort food comparison, it’s the very first home-cooked dinner my brother and I would request every time we came home from boarding school.The spices in the garam masala blend range from the basics (cumin, coriander, peppercorns) to the exotic and unusual (saffron, fennel pollen, asafetida). For the sake of home-cookery, however, I’ve included my own simple garam masala you can make in a coffee grinder. Just be sure to wash it thoroughly before and after. Click here for Recipe SWAT Team: Chili.

Indian Shortbread Cookies
These orange-flavored khasta biscuits are inspired by the recipe of my mother. I have eaten her shortbread cookies a million times in my life but every time they tasted exactly the same, lightly sweetened, with just a tad bit of salt and cumin — just enough to command their presence. These are typically served with hot milk, coffee, or chai. See all dessert recipes.

Simple Spiced Pilaf
This cumin-scented green pea pulao is the perfect accompaniment to Chicken Tikka Masala. Here's a little tip for cooking basmati rice: The rule of thumb is to add water a little more than twice the quantity of rice; but here, I added a half-cup extra for softer rice.

Indian Pudding
Indian pudding is similar to hasty pudding, a tradition the Pilgrims brought with them from England, but since wheat flour wasn’t readily available, the settlers subbed in cornmeal creating this distinctly American dish that is still enjoyed today at New England Thanksgiving celebrations.

Indian Chicken Salad Pockets
I’m a big fan of mixing low-fat mayonnaise with stronger flavors to give it the richness of a full-fat mayonnaise. Here, I’ve coupled low-fat mayonnaise with curry paste, which is found in the international foods aisle in most major grocery stores. Just be sure you don’t go crazy with these pastes in other dishes — most are insanely full of fat and sodium. But they also have very strong flavor, so in a dish like this — where 1/2 teaspoon does it — I absolutely love them and I suspect you will, too.See all wrap recipes.Click here to see 13 Easy Recipes for Back-to-School Meal Planning.
