Favorite Punjabi Meal

My neighbor's co-worker is from a Punjabi family in northern India. She traveled the world as a diplomat's daughter and now teaches social work at University of Southern Maine. She invited me to watch and learn as she cooked her son's birthday meal: kidney bean curry, cumin-scented rice, yogurt sauce, minted potatoes and homemade flatbread. See below to see the recipes, the story of our cooking session, and how-to photos. I've already cooked this meal twice for friends and everybody was raving.
