This eggplant salad is a tribute to my imagination. I’d better call it Lola’s signature eggplant salad :D All-time favorite, irresistible, very eggplanty and delicious :) Although I did not cover all of the steps involved in making this salad, I will try to give a detailed explanation of each step. Once I make the salad again, I will make sure to complete all of the steps with some additional pictures.
I first tasted this dessert at our favorite Indian restaurant after my husband insisted that it was very good. I immediately liked it since the taste reminds me of Turkish desserts like baklava, revani and Kemalpasa. Since then, I have tried to make Gulab Jamun multiple times at home. It is a very simple dessert, but I admit that it took me at least 6 tries to make it the way it is supposed to be! This is a step-by-step recipe, so please follow all of the steps carefully and look at the pictures as a reference.
Spinach Saag is a curried spinach which is very delicious and pleasantly creamy. It is an excellent side dish for almost anything. I mainly make it as a side to my Curry Chicken. It is very easy to make and if you decide to prepare Saag, it will be worth your time (that is if you like curry and spinach!).
This chicken curry recipe is a killer (of hunger of course)! Indian curry chicken is a very delicious dish, served in curry spice along with Basmati rice. This step-by-step chicken curry recipe with pictures will help you prepare a very delicious meal for you and your family. Highly recommended by moi! Very tasty, very fast and full of flavor. We love going to a local authentic Indian restaurant in our neighborhood. My deal is, of course, to try to learn how to bring the new flavors back to my kitchen. I decided to try to cook one of our favorite Curry Chicken also known as Indian Chicken Curry recipes.
My mother-in-law gave me two dessert recipes for us to enjoy (actually, I begged for them myself :D). They are both her signature desserts. I loved the way the recipes felt when I read them. Yeaaah, I can imagine the dish or the dessert just by reading the recipe! :) The first one was “Black Cake” – I will post the recipe of it sometime next week. The second recipe was this one.
Today I decided to cook and take pictures of one of the favorite meals of my husband. The process is very easy but you have to have a pressure cooker for this particular recipe. You will also need to like chickpeas, meat and tomato combination. This meal is widely known in Uzbekistan but I’ve only heard of its existence after moving to U.S. :) From what I understood, different regions make it differently and ingredients vary, too.
For those who like to utilize their pressure cookers, I present a very easy way of making Uzbek Palov (a.k.a. Uzbek Plov, Pilav, Pulav, Pplof, Osh). It has a unique taste and comes out perfect every time I make it. The main thing I like about making Palov by using my pressure cooker is the tender taste the meat gets after being cooked under pressure with multiple spices. Plus, the amount of time I save while using this method is amazing.
Somsa, Samosa, Sambusa
This recipe is for preparing “Somsa“, which is also known as “Samosa” or “Sambusa” in some parts of the world.
When I lived in Pittsburgh, I used to go to a Lebanese eatery called “Aladdin’s”. I loved the place very much! The atmosphere, the food and the CAKES were amazing. Every time I went there, I would order Chicken Mishwi. But I never bothered asking them how they actually cooked this chicken to be so tender and absolutely delicious. Knowing the name of the dish, I searched for it for a long time. There wasn’t much about it except for one little recipe in Yahoo Q/A. I really had to strain my taste buds to exactly pin point what it is I ate at “Aladdin’s”. Now we eat this chicken every other week.
