Carrot Cake III
This recipe was very dissapointing. After all of the 5 star reviews, I expected the cake to be perfect. Like some of the others, mine rose too high in the pan and then collapsed, leaving a rubbery mess. I followed the recipe exactly, including the pan size, and my oven is completely accurate. I never opened the oven door, and my levening agents are fresh. I wonder if the reason it didn't work out is that unlike the others, I DIDN'T modify ~ I noticed that others who complained about their cake falling also said the followed the recipe exactly as written.

Chicken Biryani, Hyderabadi Style
This recipe is virtually indestructible. I made A LOT of substitutions and still the flavor came out rich, the texture was great, and the presentation beautiful. I didn't have cloves, so I substituted cinnamon. I didn't have whole chicken so I used chicken breast, and to compensate for flavor, used a bullion cube when adding water. I didn't have curry leaves so I used dried curry and I didn't have green peppers so I used one red pepper and cayenne powder. I didn't have any problem with curdling -- used a thick Dutch yogurt. I didn't have jasmine rice so I had to use risotto. I can see that the jasmine would have been better (lighter and fluffier) and that cloves would have been better than cinnamon. But all in all, it still tasted great!

Basic British Scones
I am sorry, but these scones were a real disappointment. I was making these for my boyfriend's birthday breakfast. I followed the recipe exactly, baking for ten minutes at 220 C, and they came out completely raw. I also agree with the other reviewers who said the recipe didn't call for enough sugar. I live in London and am used to scones that are not too sweet, but these were bland and salty.
