Sfouf (Lebanese Turmeric Cake)

Rating: 4.5 stars 2
This Lebanese cake flavored with anise seeds was one of my favorite treats growing up. It's a beautiful bright yellow thanks to turmeric powder. My grandmother shared her recipe with me so I can finally make it for myself!

Instant Pot® Chicken Biryani

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
Traditional chicken biryani made in an Instant Pot® cuts down on time but not flavor. The rice comes out fluffy and the chicken comes out tender. You can't ask for more. Serve with yogurt raita to complement the spices.

Chef John's Peanut Curry Chicken

Rating: 5 stars 567
I decided to not follow any specific recipe from any particular country or culture, but instead I made a simple composite of every peanut curry I've ever come across. I didn't use coconut milk, as I feel that's a little too sweet and rich for the peanut butter. I loved how this came out, and I can't imagine it being any richer.

A classic Indian dish of cooked spinach with cubes of fried paneer cheese.

Lamb Tagine

Inspiration and Ideas

"Great texture and flavour." – Denise
Haldi Ka Doodh (Hot Turmeric Milk)
Rating: 5 stars 83

A great home remedy beverage for cough, congestion, colds and skin problems. This winter replace your usual hot cocoa with an invigorating cup of wellness. Bonus points for jammies and slippers. Turmeric can stain clothing and counter tops, so wear an apron; proceed with caution.
