Tahdig

Inspired by recipes and tips from Jew-ish by Jake Cohen, Persiana by Sabrina Gayour, Samin Nosrat, and an online cooking class I took with Shayma Saadat.There are a variety of ways to make Persian Chelo ba Tahdig (rice with a crispy layer) which is a recipe that's more about the technique than ingredients. It took me three times until I got it right, but once you do, you're set for life. I gave some notes in the post about the type of skillet to use. I used a good-quality non-stick skillet…

Spiced Kefta

Adapted from Persiana: Recipes from the Middle East & Beyond by Sabrina GhayourKefta is prepared differently around the world; it's sometimes grilled, and sometimes simmered in spiced tomato sauce, for example. I cooked mine on a grill but a griddle pan on the stovetop, or in a skillet with some oil, works well.I upped the spaces a bit from the original recipes. If you'd like, the spices and seasonings can be adjusted as you wish. Common ingredients include, but aren't limited to, allspice…

Adapted from The Arabesque Table: Contemporary Recipes from the Arab World by Reem KassisYou can customize this halvah with various toppings, swapping out the pistachios with roasted peanuts or cashews, rose petals, sesame seeds, chocolate chips or roasted cocoa nibs, coffee beans, sesame or pumpkin seeds, or whatever and wherever your imagination takes you. Reem offers a few other suggestions in the book, such as adding cocoa powder, cardamom and other flavors to the mix. I've suggested a…

Buttermilk Fattoush

Adapted from Falastin: A Cookbook by Sami Tamimi and Tara Wigley If decent tomatoes aren't available, substitute 2 cups (380g) of halved or quartered cherry tomatoes. I don't advise overdraining the cucumbers with salt in step #2 as they can get soggy. It's a step they don't do in the book, but I like to do it to get rid of some of the excess water. I supposed if you're serving the salad right away, it's not necessary, although it's a habit of mine to do it. Fattoush often uses stale or…

A lively sauce made with fresh mint and chile peppers for some zip and zing! Great with eggs, roasted vegetables, chicken, fish and falafels. Oven Roasted Cauliflower, Sauces, Drink Recipe Book, David Lebovitz, Food Porn, How To Make Salsa, Fresh Mint Leaves, Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers, Foodblogger

Mint zhoug

Note that I haven't tried this with other herbs but if you want to do so, you'll likely use less olive oil. Fresh mint isn't as "juicy" or humid as softer herbs. Cumin and cardamom seem to be constant spices used in zhoug but I've seen recipes that call for black pepper, coriander seed, and even caraway. So feel free to vary them to what you have or your tastes. Even if using fresh mint, I start with a smaller amount, as indicated by the recipe in Step #s, then add more as needed, until you…

Persian Herb Frittata (Kuku Sabzi) | Ricardo

You’ll go cuckoo for this striking one-pan dish inspired by a traditional Persian frittata called kuku sabzi. It comes out of the oven glowing a deep shade of green, ready to take a central spot on the table or to shine as a side with fish and rice. We went light on the eggs—just enough to hold it all together—and heavy on the plants: a motherlode of parsley, cilantro, dill, spinach and lettuce, along with walnuts and dried cranberries (or barberries, for a more authentic accent).

Mansoura

One of the appeals of Brooklyn is the rich ethnic mix of cultures, cuisines, and traditions, that is somewhat of a microcosm of America. Many of our grandparents, including mine, arrived on Ellis Island and assimilated to life in America in New York City. And it still remains a lively, if sometimes uncomfortable, mix of upscale, downscale, rich, poor, happy, angry, frustrated, and content. But everybody's gotta
