Recipes

One of the loveliest ways we are experiencing the countries and cultures we are visiting is through their food. 🙂 Every once in a while I’ve taken a cooking class or have been lucky enough to have a particularly exciting dish explained to me by some kind and generous person we’ve met. This is my small (but hopefully ever-expanding!) collection of recipes (or sometimes links to recipes) I’m gathering along the way. (You may have to scroll in some instances to get to the goods!)

India
Dal Makhani – a creamy lentil dal
Roasted eggplant
Simple Pakoras – battered, fried, spicy goodness
Yogurt a la Reeshma 

Myanmar
Burmese ginger salad – addictive, packs a garlic/peanut punch

Thailand
Chicken with cashew nuts (link to cooking school’s recipe)
Pad Thai – the Thai standard, yummy noodles with egg, tofu, bean sprouts and peanut (link to cooking school’s recipe)
Banana in coconut milk – easy and delicious dessert! (link to cooking school’s recipe)
Lemongrass salad – made with young lemongrass, a tasty, refreshing dish (link only)
