Chicken in Coconut Almond Sauce

I love going out for Indian food. It is usually gluten-free (minus naan bread of course) and absolutely delicious. Over the years, my husband and I have played around with making our own homemade Indian chicken and veggie dinners which our kids always gobble up in no time. Indian inspired gluten-free cooking can be very healthy and make satisfying meals.

A few months ago, I was asked to review a new book by Alamelu Vairavan and Margaret Pfeifffer-Indian Inspired Gluten-Free Cooking. Without hesitation I said yes. Folks, this book is a winner all around. From gorgeous pictures, to delicious meals to nutrition information for each serving-this book is now a staple on my cookbook kitchen shelf. Other amazing recipes in the book include Lentil Crepes, Fish in Ginger-Garlic Sauce, Mango Lassi, Poached Pears with Ginger and Cardamom and many more! I can’t wait to make many more of the yummy recipes in the months to come.

My husband made the Chicken in Coconut Almond Sauce from the book with some of his own modifications. This dish was so scrumptious we made it twice in a week.
Here is My Hubby’s Homemade Version of Chicken in Coconut Almond Sauce. What is your favorite Indian inspired dish?
