Thai basil fried rice. Delicious if you've never tried it, I looked up the recipe today and it's surprisingly simple.

Soy sauce
Oyster sauce
Fish sauce

Jasmin rice
onion
green pepper
red pepper
basil leaves

another crushed or chopped pepper gives it the heat but I can't remember the pepper.

Anybody have the Rabbit and Dumplings at Cochon? They bake the biscuits on top of the casserole. It's awesome. Not authentic, but awesome nonetheless.

Same here. Its a mess and such a hassle, especially if its for only 2-3 people. I hate fast food crispy fried chicken though.

Its good, I did not find it that outstanding however.. It was over shadowed by the rabbit liver appetizer.


As for the Chicken and Dumplings. Treedawgs Moms recipe is the only option here.

My grandma made chicken and dumplings... She boiled a whole chicken with salt, pepper. Garlic powders, onion powders.... She then deboned the chicken... Used the stock for the dumplings... Put boneless chicken back in pot... Then she would buy the 4 pack of cheap biscuits... She stretched them broke into pieces and added to chicken and stock.... All a dumpling is, is an uncooked biscuit.... She took the easy way and just bought the dough ready made... I loved them..she has since passed away but I think of her every time I make this dish


this is exactly how i like them, just make sure you get plain biscuits and not buttered flavored! i made that mistake once.

Indian and Thai dishes

In my experience Thai is much easier to cook than Indian, especially with all of the quick pastes and such that you can use.

Making Indian from scratch takes a bit of effort and repetition. And finding a reliable recipe is a bitch. There are obviously endless permutations for how to make any dish but just take a staple Indian dish like butter chicken and start googling for recipes. The differences in preparation are night and day from recipe to recipe. About the only constant is that you need tandoori chicken and tomatoes.
