Hello,
I'm learning to cook Indian food. I am not accustomed to eating spicy food. Any suggestions for mild and tasty Indian recipes?

I think it might be a good idea to get this moved to the cooking sub-forum rather than San Diego.

Agreed. But since it's still here, I can recommend Patak's sauces (though it's not as instructive as making sauce from scratch). They come in a variety of 'heats'.

Go to Youtube and do a search for Manjula's Kitchen.

Shan is a brand of spice combos for some common Indian dishes. The butter chicken is the best. It is mild by Indian standards but sort of anglo spicy. You can add less spice at first. The shan brand can be found at north park produce. Make sure you have the items needed on back of package...tomatos,lemon, butter, cream, milk. I add baby okra, also at north park and cauliflower.

My girlfriend has made a few things she saw on Manjula's Kitchen and even though I don't normally like vegetarian food I have to say they were pretty good.

Indian food is actually pretty easy once you know a few dishes since most dishes use a varient of two or three different base spices (depending on if you want a saucy or dry) curry.

Take a look at the following site on top of Manjula's Kitchen ... the recipe's are very easy to follow:
