  • * Exported from MasterCook * !!!Read Me!Recipe By : Bill WightServing Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00Categories : Information *Indian Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method-------- ------------ -------------------------------- ***Information***The recipes in this collection were collected, corrected, edited and categorized by Bill Wight.You may redistribute this collection in any form as long as this message is included.For comments or suggestions, email me at: Bill_Wight_CA@yahoo.comSome answers to frequently asked questions about my recipe collection:I notice that you have edited and corrected many of the recipe archives you have on yourpage. What did you edit out and correct?Many of the recipes in this collection were typed, formatted and posted in the late 1980s andearly 1990s to various bulletin boards before the Internet came into being. These recipeswere often formatted for a recipe management program called MealMaster. During the years,the recipes have been posted and reposted to various mailing lists and newsgroups on theInternet. They often pick up errors during reformatting and reposting. I have also convertedmany of these recipes from Web page format and MealMaster format to MasterCook format.This conversion process often introduces errors into the recipe. I have attempted to correctthe conversion errors. I have also removed the names of the people who typed, formatted andposted these recipes. I have kept the recipe author or creator where known. I have alsoremoved duplicate recipes and I have attempted to make some sense out of the recipescategories.I notice that you have removed all the nutrition data from the recipes in your collection. Whydid you do this?Since many of the recipes in this archive were typed and formatted several years ago and theyoften contain conflicting nutrition information, I have decided to strip out the nutritional datafrom all the recipes I edit. If you have a current version of MasterCook (6.0) it will calculatenutritional data more accurately than the older versions. So after you import the recipes intoyour copy of MasterCook, you will have up-to-date nutritional data available. If nutritionaldata is important to you, make sure that the serving size looks reasonable. Many recipes havea serving size set to the MasterCook default setting of 1. So nutritional data would assumethe entire recipe is one serving and report the data incorrectly. I have tired, as I edited therecipes, to correct the serving size if it was set to "1" to a reasonable serving size based on therecipes ingredient amounts. ------------------

  • Ismael Merchant writes: "Food helps us establish or cement relationships with other people,and this is the aspect of cooking I find most enjoyable. You can do without many things inlife, but not food and the enjoyment of eating - unless, of course, you become an ascetic or afakir and become radically self-sufficient. I could never become a hermit because of missingthe deep feeling of accomplishment and communion I have when preparing a meal forfriends."The recipes in this section [Chapter 11, Pulses] are made with pulses (dried lentils, beans,and peas) which nearly every culture uses in it cooking and which appear at nearly everyIndian meal. There are many different varieties, and it is fun discovering the different sortsavailable from Indian shops. They all have their own particular qualities, which you willlearn about as you experiment with them. However, there are some general guidelines."All pulses should be picked over carefully to remove any small stones, papery husks, andstems, then washed and drained. Except for the familiar whole green European lentils, mostof the whole pulses need overnight soaking covered by about three times their volume of coldwater. Because whole Indian pulses are generally smaller than the ones used in the West,most of them need only two hours soaking before they are ready to cook. If they have beenhulled and/or split as with masoor dal, you can dispense with presoaking altogether. Theexception, and naturally there is one, is with kabli and kala chana. Like their Westerncounterparts, these chick-peas need up to twelve hours presoaking." "This being said, toavoid indigestion be sure to cook the prepared pulses in fresh water until they are tender.Undercooked pulses are bad news."Some of the most common kinds of pulses used in Indian cooking are as follows: Chana dal (or gram dal) are hulled and split chick-peas. Deep yellow in color, these pulsesdo not need soaking before cooking." "Kabli chana are yellow chick-peas. Unhulled andbeige in color, they need overnight soaking before cooking."Kala chana are small brown or black chick-peas. Like kabli chana, they require longpresoaking and cooking to become tender."Continental masoor are whole greenish-brown lentils. Flat and oval-shaped, they originatedin the West and were adopted by India, so they should already be fairly familiar to you. Theydo not need presoaking." "Masoor are brown Indian lentils. Whole but smaller thancontinental masoor, they do not require presoaking."Masoor dal are split masoor which are tiny and salmon- pink because they have also beenhulled. They do not need presoaking and turn yellow when they cook."Moong beans (or hari dal) are dark green, small, and slightly cylindrical in shape. They need2-4 hours soaking before cooking, but if oversoaked they will sprout and become moongbean sprouts so familiar in the West." "Moong dal chilka are split moong beans, green on oneside and pale on the other. They do not need presoaking."Moong dal are split, light yellow, and rectangular in shape because they are hulled. They donot need to be soaked before cooking.
  • "Toor dal (or arhar dal) are a hulled, split pulse, a little larger than chana dal. Dull andyellow-colored, they do need presoaking." "Urid (or black matpe) are small, dull, and black,similar in size and shape to moong beans. They must be presoaked."Urid dal are split urid that do not need to be soaked before cooking."Washed urid dal are off-white because they have been hulled and washed as well as split.They do not require presoaking." "This list may seem long and overwhelming, but I suggestthat you begin your experience in dal cooking with only one or two types of pulses first.Stick to the same type until you are familiar and quite confident with it. Then add another toyour repertoire and so on. I would suggest you start with continental masoor, which is themost common kind, or possibly chana dal or masoor dal."From "Ismail Merchants Indian Cuisine" by Ismail Merchant.

Soak in a lot of water forabout 2 hours.Grind the soaked mixture with chile powder and salt coarsely, without adding much water.Ferment for about 3 - 4 hours, then refrigerate or freeze. In cold weather, the fermentingprocess might take longer, and it might be a good idea to ferment in an oven (the pilot lightwill keep the mixture warm).Add either onions (finely cut), carrot (grated) or coconut before preparing.
  • Freezing Notes: If freezing, only ferment for about an hour. The mixture will have to be leftout for a while before being ready to use.Rajeev Krishnamoorthy ------------------ * Exported from MasterCook * Adai (savory Indian Pancakes)Recipe By : Nalini GanapatiServing Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00Categories : East Indian Appetizers *Indian Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method-------- ------------ -------------------------------- 1 cup mixture of dhals* 2 cups long grained rice salt -- to taste* (use any combination of tur dhal, chana dal or even split yellow peas)Wash and rinse the dhals and rice thoroughly. When the rinse water runs clear, soak the dhalsand rice together in a bowl with fresh water for a couple of hours. Drain the dhal-rice mixtureand grind into a somewhat coarse mixture in a blender using water when necessary. Emptythe batter into a bowl, add some salt and let it rest for at least an hour. You could also let itferment overnight if you like a sourdough tang in your pancakes.To make the pancakes, heat a non-stick/well-seasoned cast iron skillet on a moderate stove. Ifa few drops of water bounce off the pan, the pan is hot enough and you can proceed to makethe pancakes. Drop a ladleful of the prepared batter in the center of the pan and with the backof the ladle, swirl the batter from inside to outside to form a thin round pancake. Wait till thetop looks dry, wait another minute if you like them crisp and flip to cook the other side.Remove onto a plate and eat immediately with a nice coriander chutney. (Continue preparingpancakes in the same way, till you run out of batter and/or chutney.The batter will also keep in the fridge for almost a week and you can prepare the pancakeswhen the mood strikes you.
  • Variation: Can add finely chopped onions/jalapenos/spinach/ginger/a few cumin seeds,anything you fancy, to the batter before making the pancakes. You will however not be ableto make neat circular pancakes. Instead, you will end up with (tasty) irregular shaped ones.. ------------------ * Exported from MasterCook * AdrakRecipe By :Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00Categories : Dressings East Indian Appetizers *Indian Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method-------- ------------ -------------------------------- 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger 4 cups stock or water 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon cumin seeds -- toasted 1/2 teaspoon black pepper one lemon -- juice of fresh coriander leavesPut grated ginger and stock into a pot and bring to a boil.

You need to rememberto cook the potatoes well in advance and let them get cold. From then on the dish is prettyeasy. As usual, you can have the chile heat as high as you like by adding the seeds or morechiles or more chile powder. I like this curry very hot and I just add lots of chile flesh whichalso gives the curry a lovely colour.1. Remove the skins from the potatoes and cut into approximately 1" dice (i.e. quite large).2. Cut the onion in half down through the growing tip to the root end. Cut each half into 1/8"thick slices.3. Heat the oil in a large pan over a high heat.4. Add the onion slices, cumin and mustard seeds and stir for a few minutes.5. Add the crushed garlic and chiles, stir and fry for a minute then turn the heat down to low.
  • 6. Add the ginger,turmeric, chile powder and coriander and cook for 10 minutes.7. Add the diced potatoes and salt. Mix gently until the potato pieces are covered in oil andspices. Cook on a low heat for another 15 minutes stirring very gently (so as not to break upthe potatoes) from time to time.8.

  • 1 or more hot green chiles -- finely minced (*) 4 tablespoons sesame oil 2 teaspoons vegetable oil 1 pinch ground asafetida 8 whole fenugreek seeds, up to 10 3 tablespoons cilantro -- minced(*) Use as many chiles, like jalapenos, as you can stand. If you cant tolerate hot, spicy food,2 or 3 Tbs. green bell pepper can be substituted.Boil the potatoes in a big pot. Meanwhile, combine the chiles (or green pepper), salt, lemonjuice and ground roasted sesame seeds in a non-metallic bowl. (By the way, roasted sesameseeds can be found as "iri goma" in Oriental markets. I dont know if you can get themalready ground up.) Add the sesame oil just a little at a time and mix in with a wire whisk.Using a metal ladle or a small butter warmer, heat the vegetable oil by holding it over heat.When quite hot, add the asafetida powder and fenugreek seeds. The fenugreek seeds will startto darken in the hot oil in just a few seconds... when this happens dump it all into the bowl.Mix well, then add the cilantro (Chinese parsley) and mix some more. Check yourseasonings.When the potatoes are done, drain and peel while hot (holding with a fork if you need to.) Thepeel should slide right off. Cut into 3/4" dice and add to the bowl of dressing. Gently mix tocoat all the cubes and finally adjust your seasonings if needed. Let cool, cover andrefrigerate.You can eat this after a couple of hours, either cold or room temperature. However, itssupposed to be much better the next day. It keeps for up to 4 days refrigerated.Inspired by Madhur Jaffreys "World of the East Vegetarian Cooking."By Sharon Raghavachary ------------------ * Exported from MasterCook * Aloo ChaatRecipe By :Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00Categories : Curry Potatoes Vegetarian *Indian Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method-------- ------------ -------------------------------- 3 potatoes -- peeled

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon coriander 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 green chile -- chopped 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin -- roasted 1 teaspoon salt freshly ground black pepperThe following recipe, Cauliflower with potatoes (Phool gobi aur aloo ki bhaji), is fromMadhur Jaffreys Indian Cookery, ISBN 0 563 16491 3, published in 1982 in conjunction withthe BBC series Indian Cookery.This is the kind of comforting homey dish that most North Indians enjoy. It has no sauce andis generally eaten with bread. I like to serve Shahi korma or Tandoori chicken with it. Boil the potatoes in their jackets and allow them to cool completely. (Day-old cookedpotatoes that have been refrigerated work very well for this dish.) Peel the potatoes and cutthem into 3/4 inch (2cm) dice. Break up the cauliflower into chunky flowerets, about 1-1/2 inches (4cm) across at the headand about 1-1/2 inches (4cm) long. Soak the flowerets in a bowl of water for 30 minutes.Drain. Heat the oil in a large, preferably non-stick frying pan over a medium flame. When hot, putin the whole cumin seeds. Let the seeds sizzle for 3-4 seconds. Now put in the cauliflowerand stir it about for 2 minutes. Let the cauliflower brown in spots. Cover, turn the heat to lowand simmer for about 4-6 minutes or until the cauliflower is almost done but still has a hint ofcrispness left. Put in the diced potatoes, ground cumin, coriander, turmeric, cayenne, greenchile, ground roasted cumin, salt, and some black pepper. Stir gently to mix. Continue tocook uncovered on low heat for another 3 minutes or until potatoes are heated through. Stirgently as you do so. ------------------ * Exported from MasterCook * Aloo Gobi (potatoes With Cauliflower)Recipe By : Eating in Eden, Hermine FreedServing Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:30Categories : Vegetables East Indian

The name derives from the Persian asa, gum, and the Latinfoetida, stinking. In medieval times, asafetida was reputed to warn off witches. The ancientRomans found it to be the only acceptable substitute for silaphium, an herb that disappeareddue to over-cropping during the time of Emperor Nero. It is a powerful seasoning, a merepinch will impart a trufflelike flavor to any unsuspecting dish. Today the ingredient is usedmostly in India, where it is called hing. Jains and Hindu Brahminus use it in place of onions,which are prohibited in their cooking because of their strong smell. It is sold in lumps andcan be stored for years and broken as needed, and in powder form, this is not as potentbecause it is often mixed with rice flour. Both are worth looking for in Indian markets.This recipe comes from the magazine Saveur: Savor a World of Authentic Cuisine, IssueNumber 26, Dated April 1998, Inventing California Cuisine. ------------------ * Exported from MasterCook * Aloo Ka Raita (Yogurt With Potatoes)Recipe By :Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00Categories : Curry Potatoes Vegetarian *Indian Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method-------- ------------ -------------------------------- 2 cups yogurt -- whisked
