Mmmm, try this for your next pot-luck. Easy to make. I especially love the crunchy sugared almonds and toasted ramen noodles. This could easily be made into a main-dish salad by adding grilled chicken breast strips.
Tired of using ground beef the same old way? Try this spicy dish! Feel free to double the sauce if you like it really saucy! Update: the hoisin sauce is quite sweet, so you might start off with just a little and work your way up!
Recipe from AussieChef at the Fine Cooking board... thanks Aussie! This is a great summer salad, makes an excellent side dish for a picnic, or top with grilled chicken for a simple and delicious main course.
Easier than it sounds! The spicy pale green chutney is made in a food processor and the halibut fillets are easily folded up within parchment paper or foil. Get your guests to cut open the little parcels at the table, it’s a good wow factor as the steam bursts forth with the exotic aromas. Recipe adapted from Indian Home Cooking.
Indian Sweet and Sour Butternut Squash (see my recipes) makes a great accompaniment to this fish!

I like to steam these before a party and then I reheat them in a skillet with a little water and a lid to serve. I like the bottoms a little brown. These freeze beautifully. The number of dumplings you get will depend on how big you make them. I try to have extra wrappers around just in case.
A work colleague recommended this recipe to me when my mother-in-law came for dinner. Its from the ready steady cook book and was cooked by Patrick Anthony on the show. This recipe is incredibly easy and tasty, and the pork is REALLY tender. I left the mushrooms out and added some chopped orange pepper instead.
This was my first attempt at glazed clay pot cooking, although this recipe could easily be adapted for crackpot or conventional cooking. I've adapted the recipe from one I found on Asian Recipes Online. We were delighted with the result! Of course, fresh is always best, but, if you're in a hurry you can use bottled ingredients or herbs 'in a tube'. I did and the result was still wonderful.
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.
