This vegetarian entrée is a great introduction to Indian food--subtly spiced with garam masala, curry, and turmeric, the latter two of which can be found in the spice section of your supermarket. Garam masala, a mixture of ground spices such as cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, and black peppercorns, is often found in gourmet grocery stores or in the Middle Eastern sections of supermarkets. (Recipe by the author of four cookbooks, including The Healthy Cuisine of India.)
