Awesome... creamy and delicious without oil. I have a Vitamix but I pureed everything but the chickpeas first, then added them. I did end up adding just a little more stock and a touch more yoghurt to thin it out. Also I had added 3 or 4 sundried tomato halves (the dry kind, not the ones in oil) so that might have been the reason for the dryn...

Pretty good... Somehow I had too much liquid. I also had too much clove character, and I thought it needed to be sweeter. The meat, however, was delicious. With the gravy I would use less clove, as it got very clovey and too bitter. I would also need more sweetness and thickness to the sauce. But too much clove and too much cinnamon does a ...

AMAZING! And even better the second day. I had to roast my huge eggplants for about an hour but you can tell when they are roasted. I didn't use yoghurt because I knew I was going to reheat it. It's so easy and relatively hands off for an eggplant recipe. I know I'll make this over and over again. Thanks Aarti!""

Sep 24, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Easy to make and came out EXACTLY as promised - rice was done, lentils were tender. I thought if ANYTHING it could use some more acidity (maybe I didn't put enough lemon, & I didn't use the yoghurt) so I minced up some sundried tomatos (and even sprinkled some freshly grated Parmesan) & it was just as good. I could see adding cod or something to...

Reviewed Ketchup Chutney

Sep 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was great. I've made it 3 times now and use it instead of ketchup, duck sauce, and a myriad of other sauces. I did puree it just because it is more universally useful. It's good with asian flavors, indian flavors, beef, chicken and turkey so far, and anything with mushrooms. MMM. Aarti did it again.""

Aarti fills a void in The Food Network that really needs an expert. She is perfect. This recipe is a great example for those of us who are working our way to being vegetarians... healthy, tasty, and presented with such a style that everyone wins. ;It turned out EXACTLY like she showed on her show. She also adds that fun warm personality behin...

Reviewed Paneer: Homemade Indian Cheese

Aug 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

As a PhD chemist I believe this is basically a science experiment and EXTREMELY successful. Aarti is personable, approachable and her recipes work. I've used it a couple of times and if you follow the recipe you can't go wrong, and I agree with previous reviewer you can use the whey especially if you season it up as something else. But even if...

Reviewed Claypot Fish and Potatoes

Aug 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I don't have a clay pot and I don't know what the clay pot brings to the party, I decided on a shallow roasting pan. I used cod for the fish. 15 minutes cooking? The garlic and onions were raw. I put in back in the oven for 30 more minutes. The flavors were good, and significantly brightened by the roasted lemon. If I was going to do this ag...
