I love to try new foods, but I have a (allergic) sensitivity to Turmeric. I can eat it, but really need to watch my intake carefully. Often a normal serving of a decently turmeric-spiced dish is a little too much for me. Obviously, this has stood in the way of my interest in Indian cuisine.
My reaction is just uncomfortable—it won't send me to the hospital, so a little turmeric is ok, but dishes that don't use it heavily would be best. What are some other flavorful Indian dishes, that don't rely on turmeric-heavy sauces or curries, that I can still enjoy?
