What is Galangal?

You might confuse it with ginger, but these two root veggies are distinctly different.

Iranian / Persian Salad Shirazi

Rating: 4.5 stars 17
An excellent light side salad to accompany a heavy Persian meal or any meal really. Sumac is the red bitter spice usually served for sprinkling on kebab. It's available at most Middle Eastern stores, but if you can't find it just leave it out. I like to dice the veggies very small about 1/4-inch. Serve with fresh lemon wedges.

Lamb Korma

Rating: 4 stars 15
Originated in Persia, brought to India during Akbar period, and modified in Kashmir. The recipe varies from region to region and restaurant to restaurant. North Indian Korma is pale yellow in color from saffron and cooked without any tomatoes or turmeric. This recipe version will be the closest to the traditional Kashmiri Korma. Kashmir Pandits substitute onion and garlic with asafoetida. Serve with jasmine rice and mango chutney.

Nuoc Cham (Vietnamese Spicy Dipping Sauce)

Rating: 5 stars 5
This sauce can be used for dipping veggies, meats, or egg rolls. It's also great spooned over a bowl of steaming hot pho or other rice noodle soup. For me this sauce IS the flavor of Vietnamese cooking. Enjoy! This can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks.
