My favorite way to use okra, and besides...it is good. I usually make this in the summer when okra is plentiful, but I have also used frozen okra successfully.
NOTE: I should have put this notice here before, but just didn't think! Okra should be chopped by hand. The food processor makes it way to slimey to work with.
These cakes will make a salmon volunteer for the honor to be in this dish. I love these crispy little suckers and so does Dugan. The delicious sauce I blatantly stole from my friend Chef #119466 who blatantly stole it from Cooking Light. There is no honor among thieves.
These patties have a lovely blend of Indian spices, with a soft, almost-creamy interior and a crispy coating. You can sandwich them between burgers for a nutritious vegetarian burger, or dip them into a green chutney. I have not included it in the recipe but I really REALLY suggest adding about 1/4cup cooked soft chana dal to the patties - the firm texture of the chana against the soft texture of the patties is wonderful.
I devoured these delicious fish patties on a recent trip to India. I like them spicey hot, but you can add less of the chile powder and fresh chiles if you prefer. They team well with my Delhi Potatoes (recipe #77931), a fresh green salad, and an Indian chutney of your choice. Adapted from a recipe by Madhumita Das.
These succulent crab cakes and the accompanying cilantro dressing are adapted from Matthew Kenney's Mediterranean Cooking (Chronicle Books). The Cilantro-Orange Dressing makes about One Cup. The dressing can be refrigerated for up to 4 hours. Let return to room temperature before serving.
