Amazing Afghan Chicken

Amazing Afghan Chicken by John Spottiswood

This recipe, known as Murgh in India, is amazingly flavorful and a real crowd pleaser. I served two BBQ chicken recipes for July 4th, my father-in-law's Chinese Barbecued Chicken (linked below) and this new dish. The kids mostly ate the sweeter Chinese version, but the adults split about 50-50 in terms of their favorites. I saw…

Coriander Sauce

Coriander Sauce by John Spottiswood

This is a common feature on Afghan tables and also similar to the coriander sauce you frequently find in north Indian restaurants. It's also common in Georgian cuisine. Serve it on top of the Chile-Coriander Chicken, or as a side to any grilled meat or vegetable. It is awesome!

Armenian Red Lentil Balls - Vospov Kheyma

Armenian Red Lentil Balls - Vospov Kheyma by John Spottiswood

Traditionally, Kheyma is a made with meat (raw beef patty). However, during Lent many Armenians prefer Vospov Kheyma as a vegetarian alternative. Our friends the Bedrosians brought these over as an appetizer last night. He said it was a bit spicier than his mother usually made, but we all thought they were perfect. If you want less…

An Armenian delicacy, these cheese and phyllo turnovers are certain to be a big hit at your next cocktail party. My sister and I grew up with our mother making these for special occasions... and while they are somewhat labor intensive, the reward is in the finished product. Simply delicious!

AUSHAK - AFGHAN RAVIOLI

AUSHAK - AFGHAN RAVIOLI by Linda Tay Esposito

I first tasted Aushak at the Salang Pass restaurant in Fremont, a city where a lot of Afghan immigrants have settled. Aushak is proof that Marco Polo made his way through that part of the world (I mean through the Hindu Kush, not Fremont!) enroute back from China. Aushak is traditionally made with beef - it's the Afghan version of…

Chicken and Eggplant Stew

Chicken and Eggplant Stew by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe was given to me by my good friend Brian Bedrosian. He raved about it, so we made it last night. It was very tasty. Our kids all ate second helpings and we ended up with nothing left! I altered his ingredients just slightly, and show that in parenthesis below. We served this over a simple bulgur pilaf made with half…
