This dish is simple to make, but it's all about having the right ingredients. I learned to make this during a cooking class in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and have recreated it stateside several times since — with varrying results. This time, I got it right, by searching out the most authentic Thai ingredients. It's possible to substitute in brown sugar and a different kind of rice, but it just won't yield the same results. To get the most out of this delicious dessert, visit a Thai grocery store in your area to make sure you are getting the right products.
On a hot summer day, when a big pot of boiling pasta is unappealing, a rice salad is just the ticket. You can boil the rice hours before you need it and just toss it together with other ingredients 30 minutes before you sit down to eat.

My mom is Korean, so we often mixed it up at Thanksgiving by having some Asian dishes and some Western dishes. If we were lucky, it was a turkey with sticky rice stuffing. This isn’t exactly how she made it, but I was always a willful kid.
Hainanese chicken rice has become a famous dish thanks to its key components. There’s the rice, which is cooked with chicken fat and chicken, and three amazing dipping sauces: a chile sauce, a ginger sauce, and a sweet, dark black soy sauce. This recipe takes some concentration and a little elbow grease, but the results are well worth the effort!
Just to clarify, this isn't a curry recipe, it's a recipe for curried rice. Much simpler than putting together a complex — and quite delicious, might I add — curry sauce, this rice recipe comes together in 20 minutes and is a great side for grilled chicken, fish, or steak.

Any time you have a large family gathering, the leftovers can seem to never end. One key to getting through all the extra food is to morph them into something totally different.
