    Made Boneless chicken Dhansak, p. 146. Very good. Nicely balanced flavors: a stew made with dal and other vegetables. Used Kabocha squash.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chinese one-pot chicken and rice

    • chawkins on September 24, 2015

      A very good version of this dish. I like the addition of shallots as an aromatics for the rice. I cut the rice down to a cup and a quarter and adjusted the amount of broth added but kept everything the same since I have to watch my carbo intake. This may become my new go-to for Chinese chicken and rice.

  • Chicken satay with marjoram and garlic marinade

    • chawkins on July 27, 2017

      Very good, even though the cook (my husband) overcooked the skewer a little bit and it was a bit dry. Instead of fresh marjoram, I used fresh oregano which is suggested as an alternative.

  • Spicy peanut sauce

    • chawkins on July 27, 2017

      Very good, served with the chicken satay. I halved the recipe and still have a lot of sauce. But this is listed under Malaysian satay party with sesame-cucumber salad together with three different satay, a beef, a lamb and a chicken and I only made the chicken one. Making a third of the recipe might have provided a more appropriate amount.

  • Sesame-cucumber salad

    • chawkins on July 27, 2017

      Sesame-cucumber salad, not our favorite, just cucumber with coarsely ground toasted sesame seeds and black pepper, no liquid component, so it was somewhat dry.
