Indian cuisine refers to all the different regional dishes found throughout India. There is a wide variety of foods prepared in the country and these differ according to influence and preference. Indian dishes include meals made with vegetables, meat, fruits and a lot of herbs and spices. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian recipes are prominent in the country.
Sous vide can be used in the preparation of all these. Non-vegetarian dishes use a variety of meats including lamb, mutton, chicken, fish and more. In the same way as with other cuisines, sous vide provides low temperature slow cooking that will keep various meats cooked just right without losing any of its flavor or moisture, while staying tender. When using sous vide for Indian food, chicken meat is cooked at 147°F, fish at 132°F to 135°F, pork at 130°F to 139°F, beef at 140°F to 149°F and lamb at 131°F.
Likewise, sous vide can also be used for Indian vegetarian cuisine. The process helps produce keep from becoming overcooked while retaining a larger amount of nutrients. Additionally, vegetables and fruits cooked sous vide style tend to have better texture than those cooked using traditional methods. Most fruits and vegetables are prepared with a temperature of 183°F.
Meat and vegetables prepped through sous vide can easily be used with curry sauces, added into stews, soups and many more. These may also be seasoned with herbs and spices before being cooked sous vide to make it more flavorful.
This is a classic curry featuring sous vide boneless leg of lamb. It can also be used with chicken or pork. Serve it with rice and bread to soak up sauce and maybe a crisp salad to offset the richness of the curry.
A traditional lamb tajine is slowly simmered lamb in a spice-filled sauce. Our sous vide recipe cooks the lamb first and serves them as whole chops with the sauce over it. It's a nice way to reinterpret the dish.
