A potent base of garam masala infused ghee is generously slathered on the corn as it grills and a finish of grated paneer rounds it all out to make this summer side dish sing.

A classic Indian-Chinese spread.

One of the most surprising things about eating around India is how easy it would be to dine on nothing but Chinese food. Pop into any sort of restaurant — from a beach shack in Goa to a halal joint in Karnataka to a French-influenced restaurant in Pondicherry — and you'll frequently find an entire section of the menu dedicated to Chinese specialties. And that doesn't even factor in the countless actual Indian-Chinese restaurants readily found around the country.

Indian Chili: Keema With Peas Recipe

The only Indian ground beef recipe you need to know

keema with peas recipe

Actually, keema is the only Indian beef recipe I've ever heard of, period (though about half the time I go with lamb intead). As opposed to whole pieces of meat, ground meat really allows garam masala to penetrate in, resulting in an extremely flavorful dish. When I make it for friends, I call it "keema-it's-like-Indian-chili-but-better." When I'm home, I ask my mom to make it because her version, even blindfolded with one hand tied behind her back, is still way better than mine.
