Indian Spiced Cookies (Nankhatai)
These are Indian shortbread cookies called nankhatai. A nankhatai is a simple eggless cookie with butter, flour, and sugar as the main ingredients. Some spice is added to give the cookies an extra zing. I used a mixture of besan (chickpea flour), all-purpose flour, and semolina as the base. Black pepper adds warmth to these sweet, buttery cookies and a little bit of fruity jam or almond on top gives these thumbprint cookies their last finishing touch. You can use any kind of nut or jam of choice.

Roasted Root Vegetables with Indian Masala
These tender and vibrant little sweet treats demand no adulteration. Less does the trick with them. So I just tossed them in olive oil, threw them in the oven for a few minutes, sprinkled a dash of chaat masala, and served with our evening chai. They went faster than you can imagine!

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 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.
