Here's how to eat 18th century-style food for Thanksgiving. For the first course serve soup, such as a vegetable, chicken, or beef broth. Then serve breast of veal cooked as a ragout. A ragout is a main-dish stew usually served with a sauce such as a pasta sauce.
Accompaniments such as raita or yogurt salad and green chutney are low fat and good to fill up on. Add salad with low fat dressing to add bulk for staying power. If you must have bread with your meal, try papadum instead of naan or eat as an appetizer. Cracker like in texture chicken tikka masala instant pot appearance, it can also be eaten as a snack with chutney or onions.
We start with cheeay, always with cheeyah. At Naryan's Nepal Restaurant in Glenwood Springs they brew the black tea and milk libation like coffee and serve it in a bottomless cup. It's the first thing my mom and I loved about the family run restaurant when we came on our initial visit five years ago. Located between Glenwood Springs and Carbondale on Highway 82 Naryan's has been voted best vegetarian and ethnic food by the Glenwood Springs Post Independent. Try the saag paneer or slow cooker chicken tikka masala coconut milk on a piece of garlic nan for a delicious Himalayan feast. If you're at all like my mom and me you'll lick your plate clean. Main courses range from $7.95 to 11.95.
After the salad you can attack the main entrees, of which there are usually at least five to ten different choices. Vegetarians will delight in the lentils and veggie curries. Personally I love the Chicken Tandoori and tikka masala. Chicken Masala is also creamy and delicious, spicy and buttery. There are creamed spinach dishes that will make your mouth water, as well as different colored curries that make the fast Indian food look like the best choice you have made in a long time. Pair everything with some fresh Naan bread straight from the tandoori oven and you are in Nirvana my friends.
For some kinds of cakes, you can use wine or sherry rather than butter and oil. It will make your cake lighter and will add some interesting flavor as well.
Further, you should check out the number of accessories available. Cooking for one individual is obviously a simpler task as compared to cooking for a family of four. Can you use the same slow cooker chicken tikka masala to cook for different persons under different conditions?
Indian English has its own delights especially to foreigners of English nativity. Don't show amusement at the different Indian accents and choice of words. This does not take away from the fact that many Indians speak and write better English than many native English speakers.
If you are still able to eat dessert after your filling meal, a good choice is Kulfi. This is Indian Ice Cream, which usually comes in several flavors, two common flavors being mango and pistachio.
