Indian (214)      Curry (159)      Question (20)     
My wife and I love Indian food and we’ve a number of recipes at home. Many of them have been good, but none taste as good as an authentic Indian restaurant. Are we trying the wrong recipes or are we missing something else? Any advice of recipes suggestions would be appreciated!

it is all about the gravy/sauce. spices must be fried off first and it is best to grind /pound them fresh. I make large amounts of the sauces and freeze for later. never use pre made shop bought sauces and spices.
Buy yourselves a curry leaf tree, this will be a great start for you.
where do u get curry leaf tree?
Always remember that less is more. Just use the minimal amount of herbs and keep tasting it regularly till you get the taste you desire with the food.

I'm sure you've already tried making this, but ever try making butter chicken? A classic Indian recipe - all you need is 500g chicken, cook it till it turns white, then add a packet of butter chicken into the chicken concoction and cook for about 20-30 minutes, then serve with steamed rice on the side. It tastes amazing, and is a great way to get that beautiful Indian flavour. :)

Authentic Indian cooking classes sounds great and there is no better than to have someone who is Indian. I watch several U Tube chefs/cooks and they are great. It would not be a problem to watch more of them.

Refer this website.
To get authentic taste you need to use pure spices( suggest get whole spices from indian and grind on instance) or use garam masal or kitchen king massala( available in indian grocery shop).
hope this helps.
An Indian bloke I know told me never to use curry powder in curries but to make the seasoning from first principles. He said he can always tell the difference.
If I'm making something that is meant to have an Indian flavour to it I will include some garam masala. Otherwise, if you add garam masala, cumin and turmeric it will turn most things into a sort of Indian dish.
