Padma has a secret stash of 'Easy Exotic rices'. This one's the Balinese stir fried rice.
She writes, 'All you have to do is chop up some vegetables and throw them into a sauté pan, adding the rice at the end. It's so simple!!!'


Padma Lakshmi

A baharat spiced eggplant.
Padma says, 'My favorite thing about baharat is the deep flavor and the rich colour that it adds to a dish... BTW, if eggplant grosses you out like SOME people in my family, you can do the same thing with sweet potato. You just may need to cook it a bit longer.'


Padma Lakshmi

Seafood spaghettini with chipotle and green olive paste.
Padma writes, 'This is great for when you don't feel like cooking and would rather be at the beach!'

Padma's adapted pound cake recipe for an American Independence Day treat.
'Something sweet that's easy for the kiddies to help make,' she wrote.

Rose petal and pistachio ice cream.
Padma says, 'It not only has an intense, unbelievably layered texture, but it's so fragrant it reminds me of the rose garlands we used to adorn the goddess Durga's idol in my neighborhood temple in South India.'
