Asian Foods

A spammer started a thread about What are your favorite Asian dishes to make. The spammer was sent packing, but the thread about favorite Asian dishes looked like a good topic.

I'd love to make egg rolls, or spring rolls.

What are your favorite Asian dishes to make at home?

I make loads of stir fry dishes but they are all make-em-up as you go, no real recipe. I have a couple recipes that I either found or made up that I make pretty consistently, but they are not really classic Asian dishes. The only standard Asian dish I've made successfully from scratch is fried rice with numerous variations.

That said, living here in the Philippines I do get access to some pretty good ingredients from China, Japan, Thailand, etc. I found a really good brand of curry paste and recently made a couple batches of red curry that turned out fantastic. I'd love to know how to make that from scratch.

My recipes are Asian Based, not Asian...In other words, I use the same types of seasonings and foods, my way. Yum!

Yeah that's me, too. I can't help but change every recipe that comes my way, that's how I was taught to cook. Actually I think it's in my DNA. My grandmother (who I'm named for) was notorious for making up dishes as she went. Problem is whenever she made something everybody liked she couldn't always remember how she did it.

Sounds very familiar! Luckily, there are some flavor combinations that I have managed to recreate, over and over.

Any given week, my menu tips Asian. Like this evening, I made okonomi-yaki, the so-called Japanese pizza that literally means "cook your taste preference." It's more like a savory pancake, with whatever you like in the batter, cooked on a gridle.
