This makes an interesting and tasty alternative for Indian meals (or any other type of meal that strikes your fancy). You can easily control the heat factor by your choice/amount of chiles. From Madhur Jaffrey's Quick and Easy Indian Cooking, posted for ZWT IV

Jaffrey says, "this dish takes just 15 minutes to cook and is best eaten fresh out of the oven. I leave it in its marinade until exactly 15 minutes before we sit down to eat. (It can stay in the marinade, covered and refrigerated, for several hours, or even overnight)."
This is a mildly spicy dish from Madhur Jaffrey's Quick and Easy Indian Cooking. I imagine chicken would probably work in this recipe as well. I made this with beef and added some potatoes. Posted for ZWT IV.
Posted for ZWT IV, Germany. From The New German Cookbook. I have made this with a combination of fruits and found that you have to be careful about patting the fruits dry because the filling can get quite wet - though it's still delicious.
This is from Madhur Jaffrey's Quick and Easy Indian Cooking. This dessert has nice textures and flavors, but as written, is not particularly sweet. You could try adding some sugar to the whipped cream topping if you like it sweeter.
German salad found on allrecipes, originally from Taste of Home. When I made this, I left out the egg and sauteed the onion and used bacon bits from a jar. The dressing is tart, so add a pinch more sugar if you like.
These are moist and flavorful, just pleasantly sweet. The recipe makes quite a lot of muffins, but the batter will keep in the fridge for up to 6 weeks. From the back of a box of Sun-Maid Zante Currants. I'm sure raisins or other dried fruits would work as well, but the currants are delightful.
This is a nice basic casserole that can be revved up by the addition of chiles - either mild or hot - or you can leave the chiles out altogether and leave it just cheesy. Adapted from The More with Less Cookbook.
