Cholay (Curried Chickpeas)

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
The best Cholay/Chana Masala recipie... as long as a couple of adjustments are made. 1. One can of chickpeas per batch 2. Use a strong robust black tea (Find a local Indian store and ask the clerk what their best tea is. For me it was Red Label orange pekoe) 3. Use a good amount of tea (about 1/8 cup per batch) 4. Don't split the beans in half, just dump the whole can in your tea-water 5. Boil down the tea water to about half, and throw everything else into this pot. (it helps to start the tea-water/chickpea process in a medium-large saucepan) One interesting variation is to add about 1/2c plain yogurt towards the end, this will add a little tangy, and give you more gravy to mix with your rice.

Indian Naan II

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This is the best make-at-home Naan recipie I've found (and I've been looking a long time). The two key ingredients that most other recipies are missing is the yogurt and the kalonji (onion seeds, check your local Indian grocery store). I can't stress the Kalonji enough. Without them it tastes much more generic, but the Kalonji give it that authentic indian taste. Also, I just add the kalonji to the dry ingredients before mixing. Adding them to the end is more trouble than it's worth To prepare, roll the dough balls between 2 silicone cooking mats, then drop into a medium hot (7.5 out of 10 on an electric range) cast-iron frying pan/griddle is the best way we've found to make them.

Raspberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I've found that the milk can be replaced with heavy cream in both the pastry and the icing. It adds a little bit of loft and richness to both.
