No pictures, but we made her pizza crust yesterday. Cooked in a very hot oven (500F / 260C) for 10 mins and it's as dark & crispy like my favourite restaurant.

No-knead bread and the bolognese sauce.

Yay! Loved this thread in the old EB.

Nothing lately here, but I am well overdue for her chicken on rice or sausage and veg bake. I have to do a shop today, better check her website for a dinner idea.

I cooked so many of her recipes based on the reviews and feedback from EB. I really missed the thread, so I just had to start it here. I wanna get back into Nagi this week for my meal planning.

Nagi's dishes are regularly on the menu. Recent dishes have been Lo Mein Noodles and Beef Ribs in BBQ Sauce. I was planning to make Mexican Lasagne Enchilada Stack on the weekend but we ended up going out to the pub for dinner instead. My absolute favourites are Slow Cooker Beef Brisket with BBQ Sauce & Thai Coconut Chicken.

It's funny, I'd always seen the thread on EB but had no idea what it was about till I popped in one day. Turns out I was already cooking a few of her recipes, found via google searches, without realising.
She's now our go-to when looking for ideas for dinner.

Nagi is the best! We had her pizza sauce on Saturday and last night was bbq steak with her mushroom sauce and ultra crispy smashed potatoes. DD had 4 potatoes!

I think I’m going to try her beef short ribs this week. Just not tonight as it’s going to be 35 degrees in Sydney.

I'm a recent convert to the Nagi Cult. I really love a lot of her recipes. Last week was very heavy on the Nagi recipes. We did the doner kebab on Monday and the fish fibers tuesday, plus the chocolate cake. all so good. Her website is now my place to go when looking for dinner inspiration (after the meal planning thread on here of course)

Her recipes are pretty good. My only fail has been her home made bbq sauce with pulled pork. Just did not like the sauce, the meat was ok. Other than that most recipes have been 👍

I wasn't a fan of her carnitas, it just lacked flavour compared with my usual pulled pork recipe.

I also completely stuffed up the pumpkin pie; somehow I forgot to add sugar :lol:

Last night I cooked her Greek chicken and lemon rice. In my rush to get it in the oven I misread and added 1tb instead of 1tsp chilli flakes. We love hot food, so we ate it, but wow!! DS14 commented it was like a punch in the mouth followed by a kick to the head. Our dog inhaled the rice, no spice is a deterrent to her!

Reminds me of the time DD was a baby, and my mum was helping prep dinner, without her glasses. I was doing ottolenghi roast pumpkin with cinnamon (amazing flavours) and she misread my spice jar label and put a large amount of cayenne pepper on instead. I didn’t pick up her mistake, and dinner was inedible.

We had the sausage and veg tray bake last night. Wasn’t a hit with the family but they ate it.

Perfect for me because I’ve been in a meal planning and cooking slump. I’ve been busy, tired and lacking enthusiasm. The tray bake was easy, tasty and I found it really nourishing comfort food. I forgot about it and haven’t made it in years but it’s now back on our rotation.

Thai chicken salad here tonight. I have chucked frozen breasts into the pressure cooker. Will chuck in the fridge, dressing made, salad chopped.
The dressing is pretty easy and doesn’t use anything overly fancy. Just need fresh coriander on hand.

While I was considering whether I shake my coconut milk, I remembered making Nagi's Beef Rendang the other day. I made it with oyster blade and if you like a spicy curry it was excellent!.

The ingredient list is long and the notes go on forever, but, like most of her recipes, it was very easy. I used a 10g packet of gourmet garden lightly dried chillies, lemongrass paste rather than fresh and extra ginger (3 tbsp total) instead of galangal in the spice paste. Instead of leaving it on the stovetop I put it in the oven, but slow cooker would be ideal.

I've also made her Chicken Tikka Masala and that was a success.

I make a version of Nagi's chicken and rice in my electric pressure cooker. I use powdered chicken masala and basmati rice. I use the rice:liquid ratio on the rice packet rather than Nagi's measurement. Takes about 30 mins start to finish (cooking for 1 person) and tastes great too.

DH loves Nagi's Chop Suey (Chicken Stir Fry).

I've substituted the chicken with some skirt steak I saw at a good price and he prefers that to the chicken but loves both. DD of course prefers the chicken so I try to alternate each time I cook it.

I made her Cheese & Bacon Strata Cake this week. Except I did it in a lasagna dish instead of a cake tin. That way I could just put it straight in the oven from the fridge. One less thing to wash up.

Kids & DH really liked it. I thought it was nice but not amazing. Served it for dinner (instead of breakfast) with a green salad on the side.

I keep the Charlie Brown sauce in the fridge for wing it stir fries too.

My meal plan for the week is all Nagi! I was feeling so uninspired and the pantry was almost empty so I scrolled through her site, picked a few favourites and wrote my shopping list.

We had quick chicken tacos last night. Great for a night when the family eats in shifts due to sports training. The rest of the week will be chicken biryani, chilli mac and cheese and stuffed chicken breasts with sweet potato mash and steamed veg.

This was quite good. I didn’t measure the pepper exactly. Just ground a lot. It wasn’t spicy.

I served with rice and choppy salad for them. Very small florets of broccoli and sliced green beans steamed for me. Will make again.

I have made that before and everybody loved it.

Nagi's Butter Chicken was on the menu last night. I will have to remember next time to dial down the salt. It tastes fine when I taste a spoonful of the sauce by itself straight from the pan but find it a bit salty while eating it as a meal. When I was eating it last night I remembered thinking the same thing last time I made it but I had forgotten.

I think I cook a Nagi recipe weekly. My favourite was when I had unexpected guests from interstate.

I cooked this in the pressure cooker https://www.recipetineats.com/middle-ea ... ilaf-rice/
I did the lamb first in the stainless steel pot, whipped that out when done and did the rice pilaf in the non stick pot.
Served up with a side of salad with tons of tomato and coriander in it.

My guests were raving about it for weeks and seriously little effort went into it.

Anyway I ignored the cardamom and added about half a teaspoon of cinnamon and the same of allspice.

I made them both with normal flour and GF flour last year for Christmas gifts and they were a huge hit.

Oh I didn't realise she did.

I used to live across from one, and now live a short drive from one of their more 'concept' store, so retailers inside, i.e. Hudson Meats, as well as their own brand.

I do rate them!

Harrisfarm are very good. Sign up for their email specials. They often have quite good specials, even in meat if the store carries those. The imperfect picks range are often really good value.

I can’t go anymore because my closest one is in a super annoying shopping centre and is like 25 minutes drive.. it’s not actually that far, but it is a pita.

Did the stuffing and trifle for Christmas lunch 1 today and they were great.

Doing the Juicy Roast Turkey, slow cooker roast lamb leg, gravy and duck fat potatoes for Christmas lunch 2 tomorrow, none of which I've made before - eep.

I thought the cardamom was a huge amount and also out of place? Do you think she meant cinnamon?
Anyway I ignored the cardamom and added about half a teaspoon of cinnamon and the same of allspice.
I've only made this spice mix as a marinade for chicken and it's great. But I love the taste of cardamom!

I made the maple ham glaze as well. Gosh it was good. Cooking the ham for longer at a low temp kept it very tender.

Lol I have maple glazed ham in the oven and potato dauphinois just cooked needing the final sprinkle of cheese and a reheat whilst the ham is resting/basting.

I’m not sure about my pav tree but I’m sure it’s probably my cooking skills that made it not quite right (I’m going to blame the weather though)

I did the roasted pumpkin with chilli maple and feta yesterday. Delish. I added some dried cranberries and omitted the fresh chilli (to keep it a bit milder for the kids who refused to touch it anyway 🤷🏻‍♀️).

Was very yummy! And I have leftover for tonight - going to warm it with some gnocchi and wilted spinach.

I adore RecipeTinEats, but her oven is way, way, way stronger than mine. I always have to crank it up an extra 20 or so degrees, or cook longer to get the same results.

I made her Mongolian lamb last night. I used lamb blackstrap and her velveting method. It really works! Every other time I tried a stir fry the meat was always really tough but this one was exactly like a really good chinese take away. I do think it could have done with a bit more chilli but I think that is just me.

LOL,

My sister was stressing about boxing day pav on Christmas Eve.

So she made it. Left it to 'cool' in the oven.

Next morning she asked her husband where the pav was.

Panic ensued until she looked in the oven, she had placed oven trays in the oven during clean up. And squashed it...

Velveting makes such a huge huge difference! I do it all the time for stir fries now.

This is in the repeat file.https://www.recipetineats.com/crispy-ba ... ith-gravy/ It is simple, but you almost forget the whole high heat for chicken method. No garlic, not lemon just simple, I didn't have marjoram, no real difference IMO. I'd use mixed herbs in a pinch if you didn't have the individual ones. Dark soy in the gravy is very clever,

This warm salad is awesome!
To avoid making kids and adult versions, I add a pinch of dry chilli flakes while corn is still hot and mix,mix,mix... Adding even a couple of flakes to a hot dish will make it somewhat spicy (well, you can taste chilli).. Mixing in cheese will tone it down a bit and kids will eat it too.
I guess adding jalapeños is a bit different:)

From memory it is not, but I did note the marinade is extremely generous. I may have added less brown sugar, but I didn't make a note of it. I would start with half the amount and taste it before adding to chicken.

This is such a great recipe. I am usually nervous about cooking salmon but it turns out perfectly. The first time I made it my (at the time) 1 year old DD was grabbing chunks of salmon out of the serving dish, she ate a whole fillet herself!

We love this one too. When I made it for the first time and told DH what we were having for dinner he gave me that look that says "doesn't sound great" but he absolutely loved it once he tasted it. We are having friends over for dinner this weekend so I might cook this then.

Really good. I made it with rump steak, and added a some green beans to it. Plus veg on the side.

If you make it as is, it makes an enormous amount of sauce. I had 500g meat, still made the recipe amount of sauce and it was still too much. Next time I would halve sauce.

I made the Easy Coconut Curry yesterday but can't say I loved it. I found the amount of spices to be huge (1tbsp garam masala and 2tbsp curry powder as well as the other spices). I think I would have liked it a lot more if I scaled it way back. It had quite an earthy taste, so I had to tamper with it a bit to make it more palatable. Unfortunately I made it for 3 days worth of work lunches and I don't really want it :( The kids liked it though so maybe it's just me (but in reality they only eat a couple of teaspoons so doesn't solve my problem of mass leftovers).

I wonder if your Garam masala was fresher than hers. It does seem a lot, especially considering she has the curry powder as well and some individual spices as well.

It sort of sounds like a real mish mash of curries to me.

I made chilli prawns last week and they were amazing. So much is that I splurged on a kg of beautiful prawns I saw at the fish shop yesterday so I can keep eating them.

My kids didn’t like the dressing but they loved the meatballs and salad, plus noodles.

Glad you liked it! It’s a pretty regular staple here :)
Ooooh that is exactly what DS has been bothering me for, Vietnamese meatballs. Yum!
These meatballs were ridiculously good!!!!!!

Twice now I've tried to make Nagi's paneer cheese, and both times it's ended up a crumbly mess. I've followed her recipe to the letter so don't know where I'm going wrong.
I also found that my few good pieces stuck to the pan when I was trying to fry them, so disappointing after such a drawn out process.
