Hey brandy go easy on the spices... most europeans find Indian food very spicy/hot. Where ever they've told to put red chilly powder use half the quantity. PH's recipe shud be ok but use a li'll less chilly powder.

I also eat hot food as well. But shan masala is never used by Indians using the reccommended quantity.

you know you can get bowel cancer from eating it that hot sister.. It happened to my father in law.

\If you do buy shan spices then do not use the reccommended amounts on the package. Your tongue will burn off.

I usually only use about 2 teaspoons and add non-heat spices for flavor. Including ginger and garlic which is a must in any curry.

One dish that is exciting is paneer and peas. Just skin a few tomatoes and add them to fried onion. Add ground cumin (zeera), tsp. of red chili powder, mashed garlic and ginger, and some coriander powder. Then add the paneer and peas until you can see the oil in the sauce. So delicious you'll never look back.

Alternatively you can try this dish with aubergines and cinnamon sticks, lentil and courgettes, and, if you dare, kerela.
