I think I've explained before, my parents have everything they could ever want so for holidays and such instead of buying them a 'gift', I make them a very special dinner.
This year, I'd love to make Indian Food for Mom. I already have a wonderful curried cauliflower dish I can make her and TJs sells frozen Naan. I can also buy some stuff for pani puris for appetizers. All I need is a main course. I was thinking some kind of lenil stew or 'saucy' dish to go with basmati rice. I'd perfer to make it from scratch (Not simmer sauce type stuff) and I have access to a wonderful Indian Market.
