Easy Indian Food RecipesI'd like to prepare Indian foods, but I haven't any easy recipes. The ones I've found online have too many ingredients to be frugal or practical for us. I did get a packet of seasonings, Chip Shop Curry at Publix. I put it in the Crock pot with chicken pieces and mushrooms. I cooked it for four hours and served it over rice and it was very good.

I have found that by using a magnetic curtain rod and hanging an insulated drapery panel on the inside of the door in the winter, cuts down on a lot of cold coming off the door.
