Get your Microwave Mojo On! | K.O Rasoi I have an ambivalent relationship with burfi. This milk-based Indian sweet pushes my ‘crave’ button at the strangest times… for which I resent it completely. Then when I take a bite of this dense ‘any-flavour-tastes-good’ fudge, I am a chubby six year old again. A bit like the Indian, female version of Augustus Gloop. I love to visit Indian sweet shops, with their vast arrays of burfi in every colour and flavour you can imagine. Well, almost. In my twenty-one years I’ve munched my way through a fair load of burfi and not once have I come across pandan burfi. I feel a revolution coming on. So what if I go on to tell you it can all be done in a microwave? I bet Willy Wonka never had himself any edible gold dust. You can make this in 10 minutes flat (plus chilling time). Pandan, Coconut and Chocolate Burfi (yields 25 pieces) Ingredients for the pandan layer If you’re not sure what pandan is then you can read up on it here. 3 cups whole milk powder 1 cup condensed milk 1 ½ tsp pandan extract

canal_house_s_crispy_chicken_thighs_recipe_a_variation_on_paul_bertolli Photo by James Ransom This post originally appeared on Food52. “Short of turning chicken on a spit over live wood embers, I know of no better process for cooking chicken, nor one that delivers more satisfying or true flavors,” Paul Bertolli wrote of this technique, which he calls “bottom-up cooking,” in Cooking by Hand. You don’t sear, and you don’t roast, and you don’t grill—you don’t do any of the things we’re taught to do to chicken. Bertolli’s is a worthy technique to play with, but Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer of Canal House have streamlined it for us. The simplest version of the sauce has only minced-up preserved lemon stirred into the pan juices at the end, but you can play with this technique as you like. 1 tablespoon olive oil 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs Salt Freshly ground black pepper Rind from half of a preserved lemon, finely chopped Lemon wedges, for serving Got a genius recipe to share—from a classic cookbook, an online source, or anywhere, really?

Today: A better, easier, smarter homemade challah (L'shana tovah!). By now we know that no-knead doughs—as dubious as they might sound—aren't an oxymoron or a lie. You can stir together a dough, largely ignore it, and the next day have bread—some of the more richly flavored, handsomely bubbled and crusted bread out there. Kneading is really going to have to make a stronger case for itself. Like the fanny pack has. This is all because there's more than one way to build the strands of gluten that bread needs to trap air bubbles and form beautiful honeycombed networks of delicious carbohydrates and air: The first way is by agitating and working the dough (traditionally: kneading); the second is simply with time. Fechtor learned about the folding technique from her friend Andrew Janjigian, who happens to also be a senior editor at Cook's Illustrated and a bread genius. Makes two loaves
