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.

Indian Shopping Tip

Indian food is loaded with many herbs and spices. Make sure you have a stocked spice cabinet and a big appetite.

Indian Cooking Tip

As delicious as Indian food is, the smells are strong and they linger. Make sure to have your stove vents running and a window open if you don't want your furniture to smell like spices for a week.

Indian Wine Pairing

Riesling, gewürztraminer, muscat, or torrontés with curries and other sauced dishes; cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, malbec. zinfandel, or primitivo with tandoori or other roasted meats and poultry.
