If you are passionate about Indian food, it is always a good time to be seduced by its flavors and spices. But if there is a time par excellence to enjoy and live the Indian cuisine is this. Every year between October and November, India celebrates Diwali, the festival of lights, which marks the beginning of the new year. It is also traditional to prepare tasty recipes, enjoy and exchange sweets and give gifts.

So do not miss the opportunity, take ideas and get ready to enjoy a true banquet and immerse yourself a little more in the culture:

Chicken Tikka Masala with green curry rice is an ideal dish for Diwali that demonstrates without doubt the abundance of spices of traditional Indian cuisine like cilantro, cardamom, coriander, ginger, basil. But do not be intimidated by the long list of ingredients, as the preparation is very simple. And the result is worth it! In addition, once you have taken the trick to spices you can prepare many other recipes with chicken as a protagonist in Indian cuisine. Dare to try them all!

Diwali can be a good excuse to try something different than what we are used to. While the traditional cuisine of our country bets for tasting the lamb almost in its purest form, the biryani widens its possibilities and reveals the flavors that can be extracted from its meat leaving it to slowly marinate in spices. Next to him, the aroma of basmati rice puts the soft and subtle touch to an intense dish full of flavor.

If you're fed up with so much meat and prefer a different flavor with a touch of the sea, Basmati rice with red curry and prawns with honey is the ideal dish. A recipe full of contrasts, made for daring palates and where spicy, sweet and salty combine perfectly. Do you dare to try it?

Naan is a flat bread, typical not only of India but also of countries like Iran or Bangladesh. It is traditionally prepared in the tandoor oven, cylindrical and with charcoal, but you can also make it in the electric oven at home or even in a frying pan. The recipe varies from one to another, but basically you will need 300 grams of white flour, 10 grams of baker's yeast, 100 milliliters of milk, a yogurt and a little salt.

What to do with that? Mix and knead everything well, let it stand and grow in a bowl greased with oil until it doubles its size and then cut it into flat and oval portions of about 60 grams. As a finishing touch, you can paint the bread with ghee or melted butter. Preheat the oven to about 230 degrees, and let it cook for 10 minutes. As you can see it is very simple and besides being a great accompaniment to any dish, it goes very well with different fillings, like nuts and raisins or potatoes.

So you know, choose the option that suits you best or try them all. Light up your house, enjoy the sunset, think about all the good things that are coming this fall, and bring a little bit of India to your home.

Do you want an aromatic dessert, delicious and different from the usual? We recommend the preparation of the banana cheesecake. The classic combination is with chocolate, as a filling of a cake or a crepe, but also goes well with fresh cheeses such as ricotta, to create soft dough. If you love experimenting, bananas are also perfect for making original versions of famous sweets, like tiramisu. Try it and it will win you over your mother-in-law!
