I cook for myself only, so I don't spend a lot of time or energy on it.
It is important to me to get a lot of vegetables in my diet, and I love Indian curries and stew-like dishes.
Lately my technique has been to steam some vegetables, then simmer in some pre-made Thai-style sauce from the grocery store, and then pour over cooked quinoa.
I have never seen pre-made Indian type sauces, but a new little Indian grocery store has opened closeby and there are rows dried spices and spice blends.
I was hoping that I could figure out a way to make easy sauces with these spice blends that would allow me to make vegetable dishes like the above -- but I am having a hard time finding recipes that use spice blends.
Do you know what spice blends I could use or if there are any general techniques for making Indian style sauces that I could use to simmer vegetables?
Meat sauces are fine, too!
