These chicken meals, vegetarian dishes, and popular curries are full of pleasing ingredients such as cardamom, coconut, lentils, and nuts. We'll show you how to make Indian food that's approachable and delicious.

5 - cups reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
3 - cups dry brown lentils, rinsed and drained
1 - 14 1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 - cup finely chopped carrots
1/2 - cup chopped onion
2 - fresh serrano chile peppers, halved, seeded, and finely chopped*
1 - teaspoon salt
1 - teaspoon ground cumin
1 - teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 - teaspoon ground turmeric
1 - 14 ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
1 - 5 ounce pkg. fresh baby spinach
Salt and black pepper
Hot cooked basmati rice or brown rice
Orange wedges

In a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker combine the first ten ingredients (through turmeric).
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours. Stir in coconut milk and spinach. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve immediately over hot cooked rice with orange wedges.


Chile peppers contain oils that can irritate your skin and eyes. Wear plastic or rubber gloves when working with them.

In a 6-qt. electric or stove-top pressure cooker combine the first 10 ingredients (through turmeric). Lock lid in place. Set an electric cooker on high pressure to cook 15 minutes. For a stove top cooker, bring up to pressure over medium-high; reduce heat enough to maintain steady (but not excessive) pressure. Cook 15 minutes. Remove from heat. For both models, let stand 15 minutes to release pressure naturally. Release remaining pressure. Open lid carefully. Stir in coconut milk and spinach. Season to taste with black pepper and additional salt. Serve over rice with orange wedges.
