Afghan Beef Raviolis (Mantwo)

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
My split peas also never formed into a "slurry" but more like a rather thick paste. Tasty meal nonetheless! I really think these ought to be steamed if you have the time as the taste is just so much lighter.

Chalau

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
I thought this was fantastic! Made it with full oil too. Great as is, but may try the tomatoes and even potatoes as suggested in other comments for a different taste. Also, might want to pump up the cayenne as it wasn't very spicy dish at all.

Afghans

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
Somewhat unappealing. Chewy yes, chocolaty sure, but not really what I'm looking for in a cookie. The chewy cornflakes threw me off a bit.

Afghan Tomato Soup (Aush Goshti)

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
No complaints. Delicious as written. The only difference with mine was that I used spinach fettuccine. Yummy.

Aush (Afghani Chili)

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
Doesn't look anything like North American style chili so don't be expecting that. Still delicious though!

Qabali - Afghani Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
Odd. My rice also ended up like mush, and after baking comes out like some sort of rice casserole. The instructions for cooking rice are unique so I think I'll stick to cooking it in the normal fashion next time. I also had a problem with the sugar in oil not dissolving properly. The flavour of the dish is interesting - halfway between savory and sweet. I have no idea if this is authentic or not, but personally didn't do it for me.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
Cheese and potatoes - how can one go wrong? Made this recipe exactly as written and turned out fantastic. Less liquid than regular scalloped potatoes, but delicious nonetheless.

Vegetarian Tourtiere

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I'm not vegetarian, but I do eat vegetarian meals once in a while. I have to admit though, this vegetarian tourtiere leaves something to be desired. I always wanted to find an excuse to try TVP, but never could find a use for it. Having tried it, however, I don't think I'll be eagerly awaiting another opportunity. Looks like ground meat, but tastes... uh, unique. To make matters worse, half the recipe instructions are missing. Thanks Jkalea for your step 3!

Durian Puree Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
The durian flavour comes out well! Although my Malaysian wife and her family were quite repelled at the idea of durian in a cheesecake, I thought it tasted not bad at all. Durian is definitely an acquired taste and this is a good way to try it. Mine also didn't turn out quite as yellow as the picture submitted with the recipe.

Noni Afghani

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
The caraway seeds really make this bread tasty. My bread rose a lot more than it should have - making it look more like western-style buns. I'm not sure how to keep the bread flat with all that yeast. Tasty nonetheless.

Vietnamese-Style Chicken Curry Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
Excellent, tasty, spicy! Found kaffir lime leaves at a local asian grocery. The hardest part of this recipe was deboning/skinning the whole chicken. I'll likely buy chicken pieces next time. I was also a bit confused as to why this appeared under World Cuisine, Canada, Toronto.

Canadian Butter Tarts

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
Sweet and delicious. The coconut and walnuts add a but of crunchiness to the filling. Best butter tart recipe yet.

Chicken and Sliders

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
This is so simple and delicious! There wasn't much broth left the second day after having soaked into the sliders, but still so tasty nonetheless. I agree with others that this really needs some veggies in order to make it a more complete meal. I placed lettuce at the bottom of my bowl as I filled it and it was cooked nicely simply from the soup itself. The chicken comes out so tender it's very easy to de-bone. Additional spices could be added if desired. I really believe one has to stick with the home-made pasta for this one! "Sliders" where did that term come from? I always thought it referred to mini-burgers of some sort.

Cretons

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
You're going to have to constantly stir this the whole time to keep it from burning the bottom of your saucepan. Maybe using full fat ground pork instead of lean would have helped prevent that. It is tasty, but doesn't quite spread like a paté, but more similar to ground meat.

Brown Sugar Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
Makes a thick sauce perfect with the Apple Coffee Cake recipe also on this site. Perhaps I'll half the brandy next time as it was a bit strong and aromatic. I wouldn't want to cut it out though as it really adds a distinctive flavour to the sauce.

Apple Coffee Cake With Brown Sugar Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
I cooked mine for the full 1.5hrs at 375 and it turned out quite dark (should have read the reviews beforehand - see picture). In the end though, the cake turned out very tasty. Not too dense, but not light either. Haven't tried the brown sugar sauce yet, but it sounds like a winner.

Honey-Garlic Moose Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Moose is impossible to get unless you know someone who hunts. If anyone knows of a game farm that raises moose meat for commercial sale, please let us know! Had to substitute ground elk instead. Unfortunately, my sauce turned out far too thick to pour evenly over the meatballs. Very tasty though!

Jambon au Sirop D'Erable

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This recipe is really great! I couldn't find smoked pork shoulder, so I settled for the un-smoked variety, although a local butcher offered to make some for me. After 2.5 hours of boiling the pork was so tender it was falling apart with my fork. The maple taste is subtle. I'm kind of unsure what to do with the broth since it tastes fantastic as well - maybe I can turn it into some kind of soup. ** UPDATE: My wife found the broth WAY too sweet for her liking.**

Sambal Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
Too sour! Half the tamarind at least. Also, substituted jalapenos for serrano chilies, but that was OK. Good luck finding belachan. Low rating from my Malaysian family due to the sour flavour.
