Blend in a Food Processor:
Prepare bread, by carefully trimming off the top crust with a serrated knife. Just skim off the crust to make a flat surface; leaving as much bread as possible. Flip loaf over and repeat. Now cut the loaf horizontally into two 1/2" slices; preheat grill to low. Blend all ingredients for the pistou in a food processor to a paste consistency. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and chill until ready for use. Stir together mayonnaise and pistou for the Pesto Mayonnaise. Chill until you assemble panini. Combine the onion, olive oil, vinegar, and oregano for the Onion Relish, in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. To prepare panini, first begin by placing a single layer of provolone on one half of the sliced bread. Next, spread all the Pesto Mayonnaise over the provolone. Proceed with a layer each of coppacola, salami, Onion Relish, arugula, and provolone. Top with the other slice of bread and brush with oil. To grill, spray grill grates with nonstick spray. Place panini on the grill, put a pie plate on top, then weigh it down with a few baking potatoes. The weight presses the sandwich making deep grill marks. Close the lid and grill panini for 3 mins. Use a spatula to flip the sandwich over and grill an additional 3 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Don’t burn it!

Toast seeds in dry saute pan for Dry Masala over medium-high heat, stirring frequently to prevent burning. When they begin to smell fragrant and turn brown, they're done. Grind toasted spices in a clean coffee grinder to a powder. Remove from grinder and mix in the turmeric. All the ingredients for the curry can be prepared a few hours ahead of time, then refrigerated until you're ready to cook. Simmer ingredients for the Coconut Rice in a large saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Cover pan, reduce heat to low and simmer 18–20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and steam 5 more minutes. Fluff with a fork. Blend garlic, ginger, and fresh chilies until finely minced for wet masala. Fry spices in 1/2 cup hot oil over medium-high heat in large non-stick skillet. Tilt pan to pool the oil at the edge; add cinnamon and cloves. Fry until cloves pop and cinnamon opens, about 5 minutes. Add yellow onions to oil and saute over medium heat until lightly browned, 10 minutes. Add bay leaves and dried chiles; continue cooking. Fry onions 10 more minutes until golden, but not burnt. Add both masalas and fry until fragrant, 1–2 minutes. Stir to prevent sticking and burning. Stir in chicken, tomatoes, and salt; stir to coat. Reduce heat and cover; simmer 30–40 minutes. Off heat, stir spinach and dry masala into curry. Serve with Coconut Rice and warmed pita bread.
