Punjabi Sukha Urad Dal

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
We enjoyed this. I also tried it with the 2 tbsp curd (yogurt in my case) and 1 tbsp cream suggested by the other reviewer and they added a nice creaminess to the lentils.

ALOO KORMA

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I think there are a few steps missing. At what point do you add the garlic and ginger pastes and the masala? I added the garlic and ginger with the chili peppers and I added the masala at the end with the yogurt. The final curry was quite thick and rich tasting, a bit different than kormas I've had at restaurants. I added a teaspoon of sugar to enhance the coconut flavour a bit. It's good. We'll wait and see what the dinner guests think!

Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
A great cookie for those who like spicy cookies. I used half as much sugar as called for and they were still sweet enough for me. I rolled half of them in turbinado sugar. Very pretty.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
This is good. I've found that a pastry cutter does the trick for mashing.

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
Easy and tasty. My only problem was that the egg yolk didn't seem to get incorporated with the butter completely and everything cooled off REALLY quickly. There was egg yolk left in the bottom of the blender. I think the problem was that the hot butter cooled too quickly in my glass blender. Perhaps the blender container could be tempered with warm water before everything is put in? Not too much, or the egg yolk would cook?

This scratches the mushroom soup itch very satisfyingly.

Rajma (Kidney Bean Curry)

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Thanks for sharing this delicious, spicy vegetarian recipe with a nice hint of heat from the chilli peppers. I used all of the ingredients but I had to make a few changes in the preparation method because I don't have a pressure cooker and had only canned kidney beans. At the Step 4 part, I added my rinsed canned beans to the pot and added just enough water to cover the beans (not the full amount listed in the ingredients) and give a bit of sauce. I then brought the curry to a boil and let it simmer for about 10 minutes or so. The whole dish was prepared in about 40 minutes. I served it with jeera rice as suggested. It was really tasty and satisfying and I'll be making it again. I look forward to trying more of the other recipes that you've posted on AR.

Matar Pulao (Rice with Peas)

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
Easy to make and subtly flavoured, this is a nice side to any saucy curry. JI don't think you'd want it much spicier or it would compete with whatever you pair it with. Only two changes made - 1) I added the frozen peas to the rice when there was 5 minutes cooking time left so they kept their shape and colour and 2) I cut back the water - 2 cups of rice, 3 cups of water.

Tangy Sliced Pork Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Yum! Only two changes - cooked a sliced onion in the butter and sliced the pork very thinly (almost shaved). Next time I'll double the sauce. Great way to add some life to leftover pork.

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
This was alright. It was easy enough to throw together and the pork was tender, but the taste of the finished product just didn't impress me and I usually really like the combo of honey and mustard.

Baked Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
These were really tasty. I made them the day ahead and heated them up the day of and they were moist and creamy. I didn't read the review that pointed out the error (1 tbsp of grated onion, not a whole onion), but I didn't find the onion flavour overwhelming. Thanks for a great recipe.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
If you throw in half a cup of chocolate chips, these will satisfy any chocolate and peanut butter cravings. Yum! I only used 1/4 cup of white sugar and they were sweet enough for me.

Plum Clafouti

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
I was intrigued to see how this would turn out. It's like a big fruit popover. Very similar to a Dutch baby or a German pancake. Maybe a bit cakier. I wasn't a huge fan of the lemon flavour from the lemon zest, but that's just a personal preference. This is a nice use for fresh plums and very easy to make.

French Onion Soup with Celeriac

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
This is a nice soup and the celeriac adds a nice fresh flavour to it. The onions and celeriac need to be cooked for at least 30 minutes or longer to get them nice and golden.

Spiced Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Moist, dense and quick, but other than that I wasn't overwhelmed by this bread. I didn't use all of the sugar (and am glad I didn't) because 1 cup seemed like way too much . Fragrant while baking, but the flavour in the final product wasn't that spectacular. It needs more spice. As is, this just didn't appeal to my tastes.

Creme Anglaise II

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Good directions. I made it 2 ways. For both I cut down the sugar to 1/4 cup. For the first sauce, I used 1 tsp of vanilla extract instead of a vanilla bean. For the second sauce I used the zest of one lemon instead of the vanilla bean. After the sauce was cooked, I strained out the zest. Farm eggs gave both sauces a beautiful golden colour. They were delicious served over fresh berries.

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
This was great with salmon and a side salad with homemade lemon dill yogurt dressing. Yum! I might cut back the salt to 1 tsp next time. I followed one suggestion to rub oil on the fillets instead of the melted butter. I used 1/2 oil, 1/2 butter in the frying pan. I only did 2 fillets, so I had some seasoning mix left over. I added about 2 tsps of the seasoning mix to some cubed leftover boiled potatoes, tossed everything to coat the potatoes and fried them. Excellent spicy hashbrowns! This spice mix would probably be really good on oven fries as well. Just adjust the chili powder amount to suit your heat tolerance.

Kofta Kebabs

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
Pretty tasty. I made mine half and half with ground beef and ground pork and doubled the recipe. I was worried that the spices might be overwhelming, but they weren't. I didn't bother shaping the meat into 28 (or 56!) round balls, I just formed cylinders (about 4" by 1.5") around the skewers. The double recipe made 10 portions this way. The meat was nice and moist after grilling. They were great grilled and served with pita bread, tomatoes, cucumbers and tzatziki.

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
This was really good with just one addition. As many others before me have suggested, I added about 1/2 of a seeded and grated long English cucumber. Definitely let this sit in the fridge for a bit to let the flavours come together.
