  • coriander & mint chutney
    You never know when you'll run into a recipe. In this case, we were in a cab hauling home our very first Le Creuset from the Bloomingdale's sale. The conversation with the cab driver quickly moved to food, and he told us that he was a really good Indian cook. We told him that we had been dying to know how to make that lovely cilantro chutney served at Dosa (with papad) and at Naan and Curry (with chicken tikka masala), and he easily rattled off the ingredients and process off the top of his head. We make this regularly - either when we want to have it with papad or when we have leftover cilantro, green onion, or mint that we don't want to waste. The proportions below are estimates... We usually prepare a batch and adjust ingredients to taste. coriandermintgreen onionlemonyogurtsaltpepper
  • fast pork and tomatillo stew
    This is a really tasty, hearty, yet healthy way to enjoy pork tenderloin. In the first step, the pork browns beautifully. Once combined with the vegetables and beans, this one-pot meal quickly comes together. It is easy enough to pull off on a weeknight, but good enough for a comforting Sunday supper. I found this as a newspaper clipping amongst my mother-in-law's recipes. porkolive oilwatertomatillosjalapenooniongarliclime juicecilantrosaltblack beanscilantro sprigstortillascooked rice
