Hi, Folks, especially Vancouverites,

Our new dinner group is having an Indian night and I'd like to put together a collection of Vij's recipes for them, as well as make one for our dinner. 'Course folks on the forum might like a collection, too. I can get the ones currently posted on the restaurant website. However, I'd really appreciate it if some of you could post others that you may have here or email me directly. Thanks in advance.

Cheers,


Dave Fritz

Cheers, Dave Fritz

Hi, Everyone,
Thanks, Jean, for posting the Coconut Curried Veggies. I'm still searching the net and will continue for a while yet. I found one more, Paneer and Kumai Rice Cakes with Cilantro and Garam Masala, which I'm taking the uploader's word is from Vij's.

I'm still working out how to turn the recipes into a booklet. When I get that sorted I'll upload a copy of the file. The dinner isn't until the first weekend in June, so I've still got a bit of time.

Cheers,


Dave Fritz

Hi, Everyone,
I think I've exhausted Web resources, so here are the files. The .doc file is formatted as a booklet, although I have not tried to print it yet. The .rtf file is just the recipes one after the other, for those who don't have MSWord. WordPad will open it.

Cheers,


Dave Fritz

Cheers, Dave Fritz

Thank you so much for taking the time to compile this, and let us have it- :)

Wow - thanks for the effort - and post, of course. ;-)

Dave - I've tried to print both files, but cannot do either (of course, I do not have MS Word, as part of my ongoing hatred for Bill Gates).  What am I doing wrong?


Edited to apologize...I opened it in a new window and was able to print it.  Thanks!

I always choose "save" when I click on the file, save it on my machine and then just open it after I'm out of the forum. I do that with Index Guy's index, and no we're not related.


Hope everyone enjoys the recipes and now I'm safe from dire consequences threatened earlier (LOL).

Try the rtf one and right click on it. Then click on open in a new window. It will take a while to load, but you should be able to print it from there or save it to your hard drive (either or both).

I can offer a self-absorbed, late-sleeping 14yo who'd live in front of his computer if I'd only let him. He's very easy to feed (could live on cereals - in front of the computer, again, IF only I'd let him) and LOVES cats.

Hi Dave, it's nice to see you again.  So enjoyed meeting you & your DW when you were in Vancouver.  I don't have as much time to spend in CT as I used to so I could have missed you earlier.  Thanks so much for doing this.

I'm adding some of these to my Indian files.  The Pakistani Kebabs have some strange wording:


Place each and rolled kebob into a medium sized pot, one on top of the other. 


4. Once you have placed all the kebobs in the pan, cover it with a tight fitting lid and turn the heat on to medium. Let the kebobs cook for about 20 minutes.


5. Check half way through to make sure that the steam has released enough water and fat at the bottom of the pan to cook the kebobs.If they are burning, then your pan is too large or the heat is on too high.


 


What is "one on top of the other" referring to?  Are the kebabs steamed in a steamer, or is the steam just the steam generated from the lidded pan?

Good question!! One more problem for the book editors at Douglas & McIntyre. Anybody heard anything more about a Release date?

Actually, to name drop since I have the opportunity :) , I was at Vij's last weekend and asked him when the book was coming out. He said September and that he'd be coming to Bonnie Stern's cooking school in Toronto to promote it.

  I made the chicken with lemon, garlic, and ghee last night.  I was apprehensive, to say the least, by the amount of garlic.  AI like garlic but sometimes it is just overkill for the sake of garlic it seems.   Oh my, this was great.

Have you tried the lamb popsicles yet?

 

soccermom's picture

(post #65620, reply #59 of 65)

No, I haven't tried any of the recipes yet. Came home to a load of work, sick DD for two days, so I've been catching up. I have heard here that the lamb popsicles are fantastic. It's on the list :)


 


edited to say, did you email it to me? I received a garbled error email that I think was from you but couldn't read any of it? If it was the recipe, will you resend? TIA

I was just going through my recipe files and see that you don't have this newspaper article. I'm sure it was posted here--maybe last year some time.

What are you making?

(post #65620, reply #65 of 65)

Hi, Everyone,
Heather: Lamb and Tomato Curry. I'm using ground lamb instead of chunks of lamb shoulder and very little cayenne, otherwise just as listed. Dinner is Saturday night. The others are bringing a veggie dish and something else(???) as well as naan.

Here are the files again, updated with Heather's contribution.

Cheers,


Dave Fritz
