  • Persian-style Chicken 'Koobideh Kebabs' served with Labneh, a creamy yogurt dip!
    First Prize
    Cook time 30 mins

    Traditionally made with Beef mince, this is a healthier, low-fat version of this succulent Persian delicacy made with Chicken instead. This classic skewered dish gets its distinct flavor from Saffron and a fragrant, tangy Middle-Eastern spice-powder called as Sumac, which is easily available at the major grocery stores nowadays. I personally believe that pan-frying these Kebabs helps in retaining their moisture and flavors more than cooking them in hot ovens or grills, especially with a meat like chicken that can get over-cooked very fast. This delectable 'melt-in the mouth' appetizer dish is perfect to whip up for your next dinner party! Serve with your favorite bread and Labneh, a creamy and flavorful Yogurt dip!

  • Mint Rice-Flour Chakli
    Wild Card Winner
    Cook time 25 mins

    Chakli is a crunchy, spiral shaped, savory snack famous all across India. Typically this is made from a variety of flours which may be only rice flour or rice flour with gram flour or rice flour with black gram / urad dal flour etc. So it has several variations, depending on the types and proportion of flours used. In southern part of India, these chaklis are also named as Murukku which is made without the gram flour. Basically the flours and some spices are mixed, then boiling water is added to make a firm dough. Next the dough is kneaded and using a mold, shaped into spiral shape. The shaped dough is finally deep fried in hot oil over medium heat, until it cooks from both sides. Then it is removed from the oil, placed over a tissue paper to cool completely and stored in an air tight container. The chaklis are mostly like pretzel, but instead of having smooth surface these are spiked ones. Here, I have added some mint flavors to the chakli where also I have opted to only rice flour. The mint rice flour chakli, a simple green colored spiral savory snack is such a healthy and tasty snack loved by any age group from kids to adults. This is the easiest chakli I have come across. This needs very few ingredients like rice flour, smooth paste of mint leaves, butter and some spices. Also this chakli can be very easily and instantly made with a strong mint flavor. The mint rice flour chakli is best suited for between-meals hunger pangs, just take out from air tight container and munch simple as it is or with a cup of tea. Any combination of flour can be opted as mentioned above, though I have just used only rice flour enhanced with mint leaves, sesame seeds, some chili flakes. Red chili or green chili paste can also be used. This tempting twisted version of south Indian chakli is very easy to prepare and a good festive savory dish particularly festivals like diwali.

  • Mom's Chicken Adobo
    Cook time 20 mins

    As a military child, I had the opportunity to live in many different places and try multiple different foods. However, there was one dish I had in every city I lived in until I was 18: my mom's chicken adobo. I'm not sure if it was actually the most common food we ate, but it is definitely the most memorable. When people think of Filipino food, lumpia (similar to egg rolls) and pancit (fried noodles) are amongst the most popular dishes. When I think of Filipino food, chicken adobo is the first thing that comes to mind. Chicken adobo is traditionally made with vinegar and soy sauce, giving it a sour and salty taste. My mom didn't really like the sourness of the sauce, so she changed it up a bit. She learned the traditional recipe from her mother and based on my family's liking (spicy and sweet, not sour). After a few years, my mom found out my Aunt Lydia (currently living in London, actually) added peanut butter to her recipe. My mom didn't like how creamy it was with the peanut butter, but she figured she could add just a little bit since my dad and sister LOVE peanut butter.
