The Best 56 Panang Curry Recipes – Vote For Your Favorite!

Phanaeng curry, panang curry, or penang curry is a type of Thai curry that is generally milder than other Thai curries. It traditionally includes dried chili peppers, galangal, lemongrass, coriander root, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, garlic, shrimp paste and salt, and sometimes also shallots and peanuts. A popular phanaeng curry dish is beef phanaeng, which is a dish based on beef in a curry sauce. The traditional dish contains beef cut in thin strips, kaffir lime leaves, coconut milk, phanaeng curry paste, palm sugar and fish sauce. The dish typically contains thick coconut milk and will have very little other liquids added. For vegetarians, tofu can be used in place of beef.

Phanaeng curry is named after Penang island, an island which is located in Malaysia. In Penang, this dish is mostly served by the Malay and Peranakan people of Penang.

Best 20 hummus recipes without tahini

Hummus is a traditional Middle Eastern accompaniment made with chick peas and tahini. You might be wondering “What is tahini?”. This ingredient is a paste made from ground sesame seeds. You can find it at any Middle Eastern or Indian grocery store, and even some regular supermarkets carry it in the “Ethnic foods” aisle. You can also buy it online from Amazon. (Get the kind in the jar, not the can. Jarred is less bitter.)

If you still can’t find tahini or don’t have it on hand, don’t worry about it. The hummus will still taste good without it. Hummus without tahini isn’t exactly the way it’s supposed to be made, but if can’t use tahini and you’d like to try making your own hummus, you have to look at the alternatives.

Here are 20 delicious hummus recipes without tahini to get you inspired, in no particular order:

Use a fair amount of lemon juice and a few spices to bring up a good flavor. There’s a lot of flexibility here too – more garlic, maybe some artichoke hearts, more or less of one spice or another.

Top 10 British Culinary Delights

I knew that British food had a somewhat dubious reputation abroad but always thought it was a bit of a joke. Then I mentioned to someone that my favorite food is boiled bacon, meaning a gammon joint, and they refused to believe that we really do boil meat. Nothing beats a few slices of boiled bacon, served with English mustard, in a warm buttered roll. So in defense of Britain’s food, here is a list, in no particular order, of some British dishes which are definitely worth a try if you ever come across them.



10. Bakewell Tart

The Bakewell tart is a shortcrust pastry filled with jam and almond sponge (frangipane). The result is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea. The tart originates from the town of Bakewell. Local legend has it that the Bakewell tart (or pudding, as it is known in Bakewell) was created when a cook misunderstood her mistress’ instructions and layered frangipane on a simple jam tart. Whatever the truth the tart has been popular since at least the early 19th century.
