Alu Baigan

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
Not good at all. I was leary about using the soy sauce as I have never seen it in an Indian or Pakistani dish before, but made it as written. Perhaps without the soy sauce it would be good, but the soy sauce really didn't go with it.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
I have tried a lot of recipes and I believe this one is he best. If you make it with sliced bananas either slice it thin or half mash and half thinly slice them and you will get small nicely moist areas in your bread. You can lessen fat content by substituting buttermilk or sour milk(1tsp vinegar + remaining 1/2 cup warmed milk) for sour cream and by using 1/4 cup applesauce + 1/4 cup butter instead of the full 1/2 cup butter. This recipe has a great flavor and texture and with the given substitutions it doesn't taste like you are missing out on anything.

Grandma's Moist Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
I was very disappointed in this cake. It seemed to have a texture that reminded me of cornbread. I believe the problem is the excess baking powder used in self-rising flour. Using cake flour with the same amount of baking powder yields similiar results. I'll stick with my own recipe which uses only 1 tsp baking soda and has a higher moisture to flour ratio. I am giving it two stars because some of my co-workers seemed to like it despite the texture.

Authentic Bangladeshi Beef Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
This is a very good dish. I didn't alter it that much and it is definitely a keeper. I like lots of flavor, so I tend to interpret teaspoons as largely heaping teaspoons for spices. I used a little over a pound of beef, heaping teaspoons of cumin, corriander, and turmeric, as well as minced fresh garlic (no powder required)I used the cardamom and cloves as listed, about 1 tbsp of minced ginger, and a 2 inch piece of cinnamon. I used two extra large jalapenos, which were plenty. Cayenne/red chili powder is only needed to taste depending on how spicy the peppers are and how much you can handle. Beef dishes tend to need to be cooked for 3-4 hours to be cooked properly until tender. Potatoes can also be added to this dish towards the end of cooking. I served with basmati rice and homemade naan.
