The culinary minds of America have turned to warm family kitchens and full dining rooms, and Ujwala’s Delicacies is no exception. That’s right, it’s Thanksgiving Week!
Thanksgiving borrows from traditional harvest festivals celebrated throughout the world, and naturally that means that food is a big part of it. Unfortunately, as can often be the case when merging new-coming and traditional cultures, Americans of Indian descent often feel themselves torn between abandoning their traditional cuisine and adopting Western recipes outright in order to celebrate or making their usual foods and missing out on the delicious fun of the season.
With me, you never have to make that choice. My Indian Thanksgiving recipes match the best of my homeland with the flavors of fall for a Thanksgiving experience that fit right into the American celebration without losing the feel or flavor of India. For example, I’ll show you how to bake a whole Tandoori chicken for an Indian twist on the traditional Thanksgiving poultry, Tofurkey and Paneerky rendition for a vegetarian option.
As usual, my authentic Indian recipes never call for any ingredients from a can, box, or freezer. Every element of my healthy Indian food recipes is homemade from natural ingredients, adding that healthy, aromatic, and unique quality only found in home cooking. Whether you’re a native of India looking to celebrate your heritage in your new home or a Westerner wanting to broaden your horizons, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for on my Indian recipe blog.
I’m thankful you found your way to my Indian food blog, and I hope I can make your observation of our most delicious holiday better than ever.
