Absolutely Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
Great recipe! Simple, easy, FAST, and the perfect mix between cake-y and fudge-y. Not too rich, not too sweet (even for my Indian fiance, who is very sensitive to these American overly-sweet desserts). I used the 1/2c flour, 1/4tsp baking powder, 1/4tsp salt mixutre instead of the self-rising flour (as another reviewer suggested). Fantastic- this is the recipe I will be using from now on.

Quick and Easy Indian-Style Okra

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
This dish was extremely bland to my taste. I am American, but I cook only Indian food for myself and my Indian fiance. We are used to spices- not terribly hot chili spice (he's actually very sensitive to chilis), but just lots of cumin, coriander, turmeric, ginger, etc. But when I made this recipe, even though I added twice the stated amounts of each spice (as Manisha said the spices could be increased, and I knew the amounts were very small for our tastes), AND I added chopped fresh coriander, it was still disappointingly bland. I also used about 1/2 of the recommended oil. I gave the recipe 2 stars because it still has some of the basic ingredients for a good okra dish, and it may be good in a pinch (when you're not in the mood to chop/measure out a bunch of ingredients).
