  TIPS
  
  In the Punjab, tomatoes are grated to make a puree - don't be tempted
  to use ready-prepared tomato puree instead of fresh.
  
  The spice combinations in garam masala vary in different parts of
  India. In the Punjab this one which you can try making yourself is
  common: 5 tbsps coriander seeds, 3 tbsps cumin seeds, 2 1/2 tbsps
  black peppercorns, 2 1/2 black cardamom seeds, 2 in cinnamon stick,
  4-5 cloves, 1/6 nutmeg. Put the coriander and the cumin into a
  cast-iron frying-pan over a medium heat. Stir until lightly roasted.
  Allow to cool. Grind with the remaining ingredients in a clean coffee
  grinder and store in a tightly lidded jar.
  
  Madhur Jaffrey's Flavours of India - Punjab
  
  This rich flavoursome dish originates in the fertile Punjab, a state
  now divided between India and Pakistan. There is nothing more
  important to a Punjabi man's diet than bread, and meals are
  accompanied by flat round cornbread rotis or rich, flaky pan-fried
  paratha layered with ghee (clarified butter).
  
  Rice is reserved for special occasions or for rice pudding, for the
  only food that makes a Punjabi feel he has eaten a proper meal is his
  bread! You of course, can serve this dish with plain boiled rice.
