Cilantro Chutney

One of the very first Indian dishes I ever tried were samosas and their corresponding chutneys- one sweet sauce made with tamarind and the other with cilantro. Often times when you visit an Indian restaurant, it’s one of the appetizers; it’s also a common trio to be served within the Indo-Pakistani community at Iftar time, … Read more

Puerto Rican, Rice, Arroz

Arroz con Gandules | Puerto Rican Rice with Pigeon Peas

I grew up eating arroz con gandules, that quintessential rice dish that every Puerto Rican family has their own version of making. Most of the time it was made con pollo, or with chicken, but it was also made vegetarian, too. My mom is an American-born Puerto Rican whose family was very traditional in their foodways so this dish was always at the table of family gatherings.

Arroz con Gandules | Puerto Rican Rice with Pigeon Peas

I remember my great aunt, Virgen (whose name was pronounced in the dialect as “Beehin”) used to make it every single time we went to her house to visit.  As soon as she heard we were on our way, she would whip it up quickly and serve it to us with a coke (and I had already usually just eaten a full meal of Sicilian meatballs and pasta at my Sicilian grandparents’ house just before visiting).

Baked Salmon en Papillote (Parchment Paper)

Salmon is one of the easiest types of fish to make on a regular basis.
