Bhindi Masala (Spicy Okra Curry)

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
I thought this was just great - a good choice for a busy night, if you plan ahead enough to have okra on hand, that is.

Curried Beef a la Tim

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2006
I have to say that the order of adding ingredients should be followed in this one. (If you are going to change anything, maybe saute the aromatics in the spices for a bit before adding the liquid.) Frying spices in a little bit of fat before adding other ingredients is a common Indian cooking technique important to releasing the full flavor of the spices (and disgusting your neighbors with that pungent Indian restaurant smell - it only smells good if you get to eat the food later!) While this is not the most authentic Indian recipe (after all, it IS curried BEEF), it doesn't deserve to get bad reviews from folks who didn't follow the recipe.

Mango Mojito Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
This was fantastic! I made a crust out of sugar-free shortbread cookies because I could find neither a sugar-free graham cracker crust nor sugar-free graham crackers. I also substituted plain homemade yogurt for the sour cream. It turned out delicious; no one who ate this could tell it was sugar-free! Next time I might try increasing the amount of lime juice and zest, as my (rather large) mangoes overpowered the lime flavor somewhat. Also, I liked the flavor of the mint sprig garnish with the pie, so I might mix in some chopped mint leaves with the filling and increase the rum extract for more Mojito-like flavor.

Wonton Wrappers

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2006
I used for potstickers... YUM!!! If you are one of the unlucky rolling these out by hand, I found that rolling out each of your 4 pieces into a square smaller than recommended, cutting into 9 equal smaller squares, and then rolling each square individually to size worked best for me, and there was no problem getting them thin enough using this method. Do yourself a favor and fill each one (or have a helper do it) as you roll it out - I had a horrible time with them sticking together having put the finished wrappers in a big stack and ended up wasting most of a batch. But the few potstickers I managed to make were so good that I saved my filling for the next day and tried again. A lot of work but well worth it!
