Indian Food

Indian take-out is ideal for a family or crowd - but it can take a toll on your wallet. If the tight economy has you eating cost-consciously, try these authentic Indian food recipes that taste just as delish as take-out.

2 tablespoons peanut oil
4 eggs, hard-boiled, sliced in half lengthwise

2-inch cinnamon stick or 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
