Recipe review challenge....
« on: August 18, 2011, 01:07:08 am »
I have so many TMX cookbooks, but I only like making recipes I have seen reviewed (and tweaked) on here.  So, I was thinking, it would be fun if a bunch of us agreed to make an unreviewed recipe this fortnight, and report back.  Anyone keen?

Great idea Caroline, we did this a long while back and it worked. It's not a hard task you have set for us with so many untried recipes around - I too will come up with something for you.

I am in for this, if I fail to review (my biggest downfall because I forget!!!) can someone please send me a PM to remind me. It's needs to be a pm so I will see it, if you put it in a post I will possibly miss it in my scanning of posts. I can't keep up these days  ;D

Are we doing books or recipes from here as well?

I thought recipe books so I can justify all the money I spent on them!  I cook recipes from the forum most of the time :)

Great idea Carolyn.  I will jump onboard too. Our last review challenge was of forum recipes so this will be great. I have been looking through my recipe books a lot lately and really want to use them more.  :)

Hally if you search for the recipe on the forum you will soon see if it has been reviewed or not  ;)

I looked and couldnt find it

Please can someone put this spice into tm language
Source Just Recipes

 
Colombo Powder

2 tb White rice
2 tb Cumin seeds
2 tb Coriander seeds
1 1/2 ts Mustard seeds, pref. black
1 1/2 ts Black peppercorns
1 1/2 ts Fenugreek seeds
1/2 ts Whole cloves
2 tb Turmeric
Roast rice in a small dry skillet over medium heat, shaking the pan frequently, until the grains are a light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. Add all spices to the skillet except turmeric and roast over medium heat, shaking the pan, until toasted and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Transfer the spices to the plate. Grind the rice and roasted spices in a spice mill or blender into a fine powder. Work in turmeric. Store the powder in an airtight container away from heat and light. It will keep for several months.

Thank you :)

I just posted a review that I have been meaning to do for months.  I reviewed the divine Milk Tart from the vegetarian book.  :)

Colombo Powder

Not sure Hally but looking at some recipes in the Indian book, I would have a go at toasting the spices at varoma temp/speed 1/ MC off for as long as it takes to start smelling a nice aroma.  One recipe says 5 minutes, another says 20 minutes so I guess at least 5 but longer if you think it needs it.  Remove from bowl, allow them to cool then place back into the bowl and grind 10-12 seconds/speed 10 (more if not ground to your liking - do you know what it should look like?) 
Looking at your recipe, the rice is toasted longer so maybe do that on its own first then do the spices.
If anyone else has more to add, please do so as I am only thinking aloud as to how I would do it if I had to without directions.
