the chef that I was staging under right now has been employed in wisconsin area. I don't have the name of the restaurant, but do visit there, it should be something what you are looking for.
Based on his recipes and my mom's combined, I did post a pictorial guide on one of the other forums that I lurk on. chole
There are atleast 2 others (one for tandoori chicken and other for vindaloo pork) also if you check out their EGCI section, there are atleast 2 threads on Indian breads. and atleast one on indian dishes.
These recipes are pretty much what we cook at home. Also, there's another huge site with *tons*
of Indian home cooking recipes. I can't seem to get the link to come up right now.
However - for someone beginning, its a little hard to follow subjective instructions (I mean domain specific- please do not take offense as you might have a lot of experience in cooking and this is not a hit on you or any others) I actually took a page out of a guy who does chinese dishes in a pictorial guide.
hope you enjoy it and do give feedback, either here or there.
exams and all have made life miserable (not to mention job situation) I am planning to post my second one soon.
