Fijian Dhal Soup

Rating: 4 stars 14
I developed this soup after going on a 2 month vacation in Fiji. For those of you who enjoy a somewhat spicy soup, this one is for you. If you want to make it really spicy add a little more cayenne pepper.

Four Seasons Chicken Curry

Rating: 4.5 stars 24
A hot, sweet, sour and fragrant explosion of taste on a plate. The longer you leave to infuse the tastier it gets! You wont serve a better curry. Serve with rice or naan bread. Don't worry about the other whole spices, as the cooking will soften them. Enjoy as your tongue hits all the different combination of flavors.

Armenian Pizzas (Lahmahjoon)

Rating: 4.5 stars 8
This is a dish my Uncle is famous for, but he has never written the recipe down. Through years of trial and error, I think I have pretty much got it as close as I can! Don't be too exact with your spices though, just flavor as you go to your own tastes--personally, I never measure mine out. These pizzas are great to put in the fridge overnight and grab as a quick lunch the next day with a dollop of plain yogurt on top!

Exotic Brinjal (Spicy Eggplant)

Rating: 4.5 stars 45
It's simply yummy - this is an exotic Indian recipe. I am sure you'll love it.

Authentic Saag Paneer

Rating: 4.5 stars 142
A classic Indian dish of cooked spinach with cubes of fried paneer cheese.

Tandoori Masala Spice Mix

Rating: 5 stars 22
I needed this mix for a butter chicken recipe. Rather than another trip to the store, I decided to make my own!

Ghormeh Sabzi (Persian Herb Stew)

Rating: 5 stars 15
Ghormeh sabzi is deliciously savory and loaded with the flavors of several different green herbs. It's traditionally served atop white rice (polow). You can also serve it with lavash bread.

Berbere Spice Blend

Rating: 5 stars 14
I love berbere spice, a classic Ethiopian spice blend, but it never occurred to me to make my own. Actually, authentic berbere spice would use whole spice seeds/pods, toasted, and ground. But I usually toast the spices during the cooking process. Berbere is one of the most delicious and versatile spice mixes ever.

Indian Spiced Onions
Rating: Unrated 7
Spicy onions just like the ones served in Indian restaurants as a side dish! Delicious served with crispy pappadums as a starter for any Indian meal!
Murgh Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)
Rating: Unrated 131
This is a simple home version of butter chicken, also known as 'murgh' or 'chicken makhani,' a popular dish in Indian restaurants. This is best served with naan, an Indian bread, or you can also serve this with basmati rice.
Green Bean Curry
Rating: 5 stars 29

I ate this with rice or coconut roti almost every evening in Sri Lanka-- I could not get enough of it! Using fresh ingredients is of the utmost importance. Some of the ingredients may be difficult to find, but they really are essential. This goes very well with rice as a vegetarian entree or alone as a side dish.
