This is a main dish food idea that will show off your cooking skills. The easy to make chicken breast recipe is a recipe that you will go back to again and again. For this chicken breast recipe, you'll need oil, grated ginger, garlic, curry powder, ground coriander, ground cumin, boneless chicken breasts, coconut milk, light brown sugar, fish sauce, salt, black pepper, cornstarch, chopped cilantro and hot cooked rice or quinoa for serving. The fresh ginger is great in this curry food idea. You'll want to try this ginger tip, buy a knob of ginger, then cut it into one-inch pieces, no need to peel and freeze it. When you need the ginger in a recipe, take a chunk of ginger out of the freezer and grate it on a rasp grater or the small holes of a box grater.

It is a common misconception that Indian food ideas take forever to cook. While Indian food ideas do mostly utilize fresh ingredients and recipes that are made from scratch, which is good if you are avoiding over processed, preservative-loaded ingredients, just how long it takes to make usually depends on the Indian food idea you are making. Just like any other types of cuisines, there are plenty of Indian food ideas that are easy to cook and others that are more elaborate and need some extra time. There are some ingredients that are common in most Indian food ideas and preparing them ahead of time can help to cut down on cooking time. Onions for Indian food ideas should be chopped fine, sliced thin or ground into a paste. Onions form the base of gravy recipes, which is a complement to veggies or an important ingredient in salad recipes. You want to chop, slice and grind the onions and freeze in freezer bags that are labeled. That way when a recipe calls for some onions you have them all ready to go.

Ginger and garlic pastes are another popular addition to Indian food ideas. Ginger and garlic are also important ingredients in Indian cooking recipes. A recipe might require ginger and garlic chopped fine or ground into a paste. If you like Indian food ideas, it's a good idea to have premade containers with each of ginger and garlic pastes in the refrigerator. You can just as easily buy these pastes from the grocery store. Of course, it's always a good idea to make your own that way you can be sure they are free from preservatives. A good food tip is to always store peeled garlic in a date labeled box or a Ziploc bag for when a recipe requires the garlic to be chopped fine. Tomato puree. Again this is another popular ingredient you can quite easily buy in the grocery store, but tomato puree always seems to taste better when you make this at home. Make tomato puree ahead of time and pour into an ice-cube tray and freeze.
