Mangoes & Curry Leaves Cookbook

MMRuth | Nov 20, 2006 02:12 PM

I bought this last week and cooked up a storm yesterday. I went through and picked out recipes that sounded good (without too much thought about how they would go together) and then got out my pots and pans.

Menu:

Baked Goan Fish (Red Snapper) with Fresh Green Chile Chutney
Cauliflower Dum (with onions and tomatoes)
Tomato Chutney - with fresh curry leaves
Cucumber Raita
Udaipur Urad Dal
Cucumber Salad with Hot Spiced Mustard Dressing
Basmati Rice

It was all delicious - very spicy - not sure if I got the right peppers (cayenne) that are called for in all the recipes.

The book is absolutely beautiful ... I didn't realize that it is done by the same people who wrote Seductions of Rice, which is a favorite - as this will be as well, I'm sure. There are lots of shrimp recipes that I want to try.

Edit - and a belated thank you to all for suggestions for weekend cooking a couple of weeks ago - ended up doing *nothing* other than Marcella's tomato/onion/butter sauce! Shelved my ambitions for another day!
