Ragda Patties

Ragda Patties

IndianFoodForever provides a good basic chaat recipe for ragda patties. I'd add more tomato and make them very finely diced.

For the Patties (can be done ahead):
3 large Potatoes
1/2 tsp ginger, grated
1/2 tbsp Garam Masala
1/4 tbsp Turmeric
2 Tbsp Bread crumbs
Oil

Peel, quarter, and boil the potatoes until soft, then mash them or pass them through a ricer.
Add spices, mix and knead well into a dough.
Add the bread crumbs and knead well.

Shahi Paneer

Shahi Paneer alone

A really yummy recipe - great on the first try. The original recipe was for chicken tikki masala, but we used paneer instead of chicken and the result was pretty similar to some of the best Shahi Paneer we had in India.

Modified from Food and Wine.

Bernice's Brisket

Bernice's Brisket

This is Audrey's family's brisket recipe. Sort of like a potroast, but made on the stovetop. It has a sweet and savory sauce. It's really easy to freeze leftovers and reheat - almost better that way!

Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie

Originally from Dear Abby / Houston Post, via Mom

1c white Karo syrup
1c dark brown sugar
1/4t salt
1/4c melted butter
1t vanilla

Mix above together. I found that using an immersion blender got the consistency to a pleasantly creamy texture, but I was also using block-style brown sugar, instead of granulated. Regardless, it should be well mixed together and not lumpy.

Add:
3 eggs (slightly beaten)
1 heaping cup pecan halves
squeeze of lemon juice

Stir together.

Turkey and Dressing

Turkey and Dressing 2013

This is a modified version of the turkey and dressing recipe that Jon got from his Mom, who learned from hers. We buy a fresh (non-frozen), free-range turkey and dry brine it. In years past, we have also wet-brined it for three days, but this is much messier (though it can save fridge space if you use a cooler). If frozen, it will need to thaw, in the refrigerator, for several days. Follow the directions that come with the turkey.
