  • Beef rendang (Rendang daging)

    • wester on April 20, 2017

      This was delicious but I have issues with the recipe. To start with, you have to make a spice paste, but the recipe does not tell you when and how to add it. I added it to all the other ingredients in the beginning, without frying it, as the head notes said you get to a point where the meat is no longer boiling but frying. But I never got to that point. I already started out with less coconut milk than the recipe asked for as it seemed a bit much. After boiling for about an hour more than the recipe says, and at a higher flame, the sauce was thick and good to eat, but to get to the point where the meat is frying would take another half hour, and the point where most of the sauce is absorbed still another half hour. There is also this ingredient called kerisik, that the book describes but does not tell you how to make it. I left it out. And the recipe feeds 6 rather than 8-10. I used only one chile for half a recipe as I was cooking for children, and I used canned coconut milk.

  • Okra and eggplant spicy masala (Vendakka vazhuthananga masala)

      An excellent side. This is going in the regular rotation.

  • Spinach and lamb curry (Palak gosht)

    • southerncooker on June 29, 2019

      This was very good. We had it over brown rice with store bought Naan bread and pickled onions.

  • Special chicken curry (Desi murgh curry)

    • JoD on May 04, 2014

      Delicious curry - quite easy to make though I wasn't so sure I did the browned onion paste correctly.
