So easy to make, only 4 ingredients... it's the super-ultimate party dish! Just a few minutes in the microwave with will make everything gooey and hot...so easy to make. This is so simple to put together and so good, and takes less than 10 minutes to throw together and heat in the microwave! You will be making this every weekend! Prep time includes microwaving time. Feel free to throw on other ingredients like onions and chopped tomatoes after cooking. Got lots of people to serve?... then make up two plates or three or four!
These dumplings are perfect and the dipping sauce is exquisite. The flavors just explode in your mouth. You can increase the red pepper flakes to 1/2 to 3/4 tsp. It also works well if you substitute ground chicken for the pork, and/or madeira for the sherry. I also prefer to steam them in a 'bamboo steamer' for about 7 minutes. Be sure to lube the steamer with cooking spray, otherwise they stick. It can be time-consuming to fold all of the wontons, so it could be a good idea to keep the folded, yet-to-be-cooked wontons covered with a damp towel until you're ready to cook 'em all. Note: I like them much better fried LOL!
This has to be just about my favourite Indian dish to make, and I make it a lot! It's also one of the few recipes that I make exactly as written! I sometimes vary the ingredients by substituting the potatoes with carrots and sweet potatoes (but then of course it's not Rasadar aloo anymore!), or by adding extra tomatoes. You may wish to use less oil, but the spice mix is perfect (and I never change it). If you've never used asafoetida before, don't be put off by the slightly strange smell; the results are worth it. This recipe comes from "The Complete Indian Cookbook", edited by Meera Budhwar and I'm posting the ingredients specified. You can easily scale the quantities up but I think this serves 2 as a main dish or 4 as a side dish.
This is the rice my mom would make with leftovers. You can have any type of meat and vegetables you want inside but the special touch is the egg that is draped over the rice and specially seasoned. The measurements are all approximate.
Back in the day we would use reserved bacon fat instead of or along with the sesame seed oil because it would add a lot of flavor but this option of course is not very healthy.
There are already numerous sesame noodles posted here on this site, but this one seems to differ slightly from them all. We found the more we ate from this dish, the more we liked it. To be served at room temperature, or chilled. Time to cook (and bring to room temperature) the noodles is not included.
I found this on a website and tweaked it, after having this in several restaraunts while living overseas. I cannot find it anyplace stateside so this is the best interpretation of Chili shrimp I could find.
This a really terrific filling for those Asian steamed dumplings. The recipe was given to me by a good friend who is a chef at Benihana. You can use ground pork, ground shrimp, or ground turkey with great success. I have posted the recipe using ground pork because that is the typical mixture most people are accustomed to... but shrimp is a great indulgence and ground turkey is what I usually use and I love it.
Yummy South Indian lentils and vegetables, a favourite Indian breakfast dish with idli (rice dumplings) or dosai (Indian pancakes). This recipe is not at all difficult - just assemble all the prepared ingredients before commencing to cook, and take one step at a time. I prefer to use freshly grated coconut, but unsweetened dried coconut is perfectly acceptable. Sambhar masala can be obtained from an Indian grocer, or make your own from recipe #110487 (much more fun!). I make this Sambhar with Toor dahl, and eat it with rice for the main meal of the day.
Wait til you taste these mushrooms - we love them. The sesame flavor compliments the mushrooms. BBQ or Grill. Serve them with any meal. Great with Asian food a steak BBQ or any where that you would serve mushrooms - This recipe was originally from the column "The Chopping Block" Prep & cooking time does not include the marinating time
This recipe makes perfect rice every time, simply because the temptation to stir isn't there. This foolproof rice goes well with roasted chicken or broiled fish. I sometimes like to add a 1/2 cup of shredded carrots in addition to the onion to give it a flash of color.
I fell in love with this dish at my local Chinese Buffet several years ago, but no sooner than I discovered it, it disappeared from the selection--and it was never on the takeout menu. When I inquired about it, they didn't understand what I was talking about. I spent years searching high and low for a recipe. The sauce at first tastes sweet, but then it turns hot...so, so good. I had to have that magic formula..I finally found it! Sweet and spicy fans--this is to die for!
UPDATE: I made this again and I wanted a little more fire to it. I added About a tbs or so of "chili garlic sauce" it comes in a little red jar with a green top and has a picture of a rooster on the front, its made by "huyfong foods" and it's in the asian section. This really made the dish especially good! It added not just heat but some really good flavor. I'll be making it this way from now on!
This recipe is an adaptation from a basic soy sauce chicken recipe from the internet and consultation with my grandma. I can eat this everyday! You can use skinless, boneless chicken parts, but the taste won't be the same.
I bought a package of frozen crabmeat and was looking for ways to use it up, since I was too lazy to make crabcakes. This is a very simple dish - I served it as a side for dinner, but I imagine it would be wonderful for breakfast/brunch too!
