    Chicken breast on the grill with indirect heat at around 250, with some mesquite wood. Had it on there for about an hour until it hit 160, then pulled it off, covered in bbq sauce, wrapped it in foil, and put them in the oven at 250. Somehow half the chicken ended up cooling off after being in the oven for about 15 minutes- the thickest breast was 160 when I took them off, but after being in the oven the thinnest one was 155. So I got annoyed and turned the oven up to 350. Served with some rice and spinach.

    When I was in India on business I ate a ton of Dal (lentils) with some protein powder mixed in. I made it to have a 50/50 carb to protein ratio plus tons of fiber and minerals. If I wanted a treat I'd add a bit of ghee (clarified butter). Sometimes I was able to add meat to the mix.

    wtf is a vindaloo. Never heard of it here in India. But seems popular elsewhere as an Indian dish. Whereas It seems like a Indianized version of a Portuguese dish from some remote place in India where tourists hang out a lot. It don’t think it will appeal to most Indians taste and wont even appeal to people of other nationalities due to its spicy flavour.

    Another universal recipe:

    Bread and omlette with some butter.

    Now that's what 80% of the people in the world can eat and like. except the vegetarian grass eaters. or the lactose intolerant bunch. Or the "on a diet cant eat fats bunch". Fuck it .. Nothings universal . Mods close this thread.

    Well, if you are still open to ideas, here are some simple meals.

    Meal 1:
    4 eggs scrambled in butter with spinach, mushrooms, and a clove of garlic. Topped with diced tomato.
    2 or 3 slices of toast
    Greek yogurt. If you do not have or like yogurt, have a tall glass of milk.

    Meal 2:
    Grilled chicken over spinach.
    Baked potatoes with a little butter and salt. Or you can have a cup of rice with some ghee and salt (I like the taste).
    Some fruit.

    I've only been to 3 cities in India but I do work with 50+ people who were born and grew up in India (north and south) and they all know what vindaloo is.
