While you're at it, you could even try a little vegetarian. Here is one vegetarian recipe that is sure to tickle your fancy, if you like exotic food. Most ingredients can be found at your local supermarket, but you may have to do some exploring to find an Indian food store for certain things such as the ghee and garam masala. Although you may have to go out of your way to find said ingredients, variety is the spice of life and it will certainly be worth the cost.
