A superfast and healthy recipe, one of the greatest hits from the Sept 2004 issue of Cooking Light. The flavors are very mild and the dish is a good way to add some tofu to your diet. I've also made this with lean boneless pork or chicken. I think instant rice is an abomination so I take a little extra time to make the real thing.
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.
I can't believe I like this dish as much as I do. I was surprised. This is a variation of a rather bland scrambled egg mix that I found on the net but turning it onto an egg foo yung is really special. Add your own favorite things but this is a good start. If you add water chestnuts, ham, shrimp, pork, whatever- then you will have to adjust the cooking time. This is a basic recipe- make it your own. But an easy recipe to amend- as soon as the egg is set- then it is done! I really love this and it is so good for a family on a budget or a bachelor short on time. If you want a terrific egg foo yung sauce then try this one Recipe#45270 .
I developed this recipe for my wife: a Labor and Delivery Nurse. She is on her feet for 12 hours a day and must eat on the "fly". This recipe sustains her energy level with healthy soy bean curd and veggies! (I make this at 5 A.M with extreme LOVE!)
My own invention of several years ago (or perhaps a combination of other Asian-type recipes I had seen before), scrupulously tested and vetted. I think the sauce is fantastic; it suits my tastes as it is not as sweet as some chinese restaurant sauces and is probably much more healthful, yet it's still spicy and intensely flavorful. If you have a committed carnivore for a spouse, or if you are one, you can substitute real meat for the wheat gluten. I've made it with tofu and soy-based meat substitutes as well.
Soy sauce, sesame oil and rice vinegar make the most wonderful salad dressing with a distinctly Asian flair. Use on any crunchy oriental salad (lettuce, red cabbage, shredded carrots, bean sprouts, radishes, etc.), or any salad period. Particularly tasty on cooked asparagus and spinach too. It's important to use a mild vinegar (such as rice). From an article cut out of the food section of the NY Times.
This is a noodle dish I came up with based on a noodle dish I ordered at a japanese market a few weeks ago. It was very different LOL but it was still delicious! If you like a richer broth, you may add 1 veg or chicken stock cube to the boiling broth. ENJOY!
From BHG's New Dieter's Cookbook. Per serving: 293 calories, 6 g fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 49 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 14 g protein. Touted as a meatless main dish but without the rice, it would make a nice side dish.
I love these cakes. I serve them with wonton soup or use them as an appetizer or a snack with tea. These can be frozen after frying and reheated in a moderate oven for 10 minutes before serving. Another great recipe from my tattered copy of "Madame Wong's Long-Life Chinese Cookbook".
If you like Chinese dumplings, these vegetarian pot stickers will blow your mind!! They are very easy to make (contrary to what people may think) and dumpling skins are available even in Western supermarket now. This recipe should use up one package of round dumpling skin and enough to serve a big crowd as appetizers. You can make these dumplings way ahead of time and defrost and pan-fry them just before serving. A recipe by Ming Tsai.
