Seductions of Rice (Alford/Duguid)
On some other threads, posters asked what I've cooked from this book, so here's the list. I recall liking everything I've made, but made some comments as well.
Spicy Greens Salad
Spicy Cucumber Surprise (I recall this being particularly good.)
Steamed Fish Heaped with Scallions and Ginger (excellent)
Grilled Eggplant Salad (really liked this too)
Red Chicken Curry
Classic Thai Fried Rice
Spicy Yogurt Sauce with Ginger
Stir-fried Shrimp, Kerala Style
Special Everyday Persian Rice (chelo)
Baked Persian Rice with Chicken (a favorite – made it for an Iraqi friend who was, well, just so happy with it)
How were the persian rice dishes? My brother married a persian woman and so we've been able to try some of the persian rice dishes which I love. My sister in law's mother makes a persian rice with barberries -- kind of a red tart small dried berry. And these dishes have a wonderful crusty layer. Anything like that in the book?
