Left work "early" (i.e. around 6) and hurried hom by way of Sainsbury's to embark on an ambitious plan of Indian cooking. I made tikka paneer, sag aloo, and dal. Plus some basmati rice to go with it. The dal was easily the most successful of the three dishes, it's amazing how much depth of flavour can be found in the humble lentil, when coaxed out with a few spices and a lot of cooking. The sag aloo was ok, but the tikka paneer was a bit disappointing - I essentially just dusted the paneer with some tikka curry powder I had bought in Sainsbury's, and then baked it in the oven a bit. It wasn't really anything like the tikka paneer you get in restaurants - I suspect there's something missing in my recipe which was pretty much complete guesswork.
