Reviewed Spicy Paneer Fingers with Dates and Almonds

Oct 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious! This is a very tasty dish, again, with quite a lot of complexity of flavor. I did make my own cheese which was fun and pretty easy. Btw - i made as recipe called for and it was enough for a dish sized like a large appetizer for 2. I think there may be a mistake in ingredient amounts because it called for 2 cups liquid which i assume wa...

Reviewed Rhubarb Rosewater Parfait

Sep 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was a lovely dish and I didn't even have rosewater which I'm sure would be that great extra little something! The only thing I might do differently next time, aside from use the rosewater which the dish calls for, is I might cut the sweetener ( i prefer honey to sugar ) by about 25% because I tend to like things less on the sweet side than...

Reviewed Indian Cucumber and Yogurt Salad: Cucumber Raita

Sep 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

As a "cooling" side dish with a spicy main dish, this is really gently refreshing . I think it may be a bit tame for use just as a dip - but for those who prefer less bite, it could work. Thank you Aarti! ""

Really great dish that has so many levels of flavor! This is a hearty dish although we made it in summer - & I guess it's perfect for lunch or dinner any time of year! I substituted w yellow split peas only because I could not find "pigeon peas" anywhere! ( I would love to try w actual pigeon peas - i did a google search on pigeon peas & found t...

Sep 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Wow - this is a flavorful dish! Be careful to make eggplant slices thin so that you can roll them after you've sauteed them! Also, I would allow myself another 10 minutes from time noted in the recipe. This one got raves from the family! Thank you again, Aarti!""

A delightful textury smoothie & that touch of basil is a yummy contrast to the taste of strawberries & yogurt. Thank you again, Aarti!""

Reviewed Cauliflower and Potatoes: "Aloo Gobi"

Sep 6, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Really tasty and filling dish with lovely flavoring - I made it w 1/4 cup ginger as that was all I had - everything else was the same. I thought the serrano being only sliced through but not separated gave a subtle kick which was great for those who don't like too much heat! Thank you again Aarti : )""

Had to try this because of the name : ) Really simple and tasty w a bit of kick. I used whole wheat pasta for a bit more flavor and think this simple dish with a green salad would make a great lunch. Thanks Mario!""

Reviewed Green Beans with Lemon and Toasted Almonds

Sep 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

A really easy dish and a great alternative for green beans. I put my almonds in a mincer first
( because I only had a bag of whole almonds, not sliced ) which worked just fine. Lemon was a perfect complement to the beans - I even sauteed a few small rind slivers and added those to my sauce. A review below remarked that it was too lemony -...

These are super easy to make and a great alternative to regular home fries. Because I couldn't make up my mind between sweet & salty - I used both - yum! Thanks Paula!""

Reviewed Cucumber-Lychee Gazpacho with Feta Crostini

Sep 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Absolutely heavenly : ) Wow! This soup has a lot of texture and is not watery at all. I think it is probably a good idea to try to find lychees - they are in Asian sections of most supermarkets and are not quite as sweet or as soft as a pear. The crostini w feta is a great addition to the soup because it gives a really nice contrast of flavors. A...

A lovely, tangy salad which would make a great alternative to "been there done that" coleslaws.
Thank you again Aarti ! : )""

Bursting with exotic flavor! Squash will never seem like a 'tame' side dish again! I substituted almonds for hazelnuts ( threw them in mincer first ) and it was absolutely delicious. You really can't go wrong with this dish - thank you Aarti : )""
