Indian cooking 101

For those of you that don't have a well stocked spice rack I have put together a table of the most popular recipes on this blog and placed them in an order that means you need to only buy one (occasionally two) dry spices at a time.  As your spice rack grows you can make more of the recipes.  I have however assumed that you won't mind buying fresh ingredients such as chillies, garlic, coriander and ginger as these are relatively cheap and can be used in many other recipes.

As I have mentioned before please don't buy your spices from your supermarket - go to your local Indian grocery store where you will receive four times the amount of spice for the same price.  The only downside is that you may need a spice cupboard rather than a spice rack!

I hope the table below encourages you to cook more Indian food.  I think you will find that it isn't difficult and the results are delicious.
