Hello friends! Welcome to Djalali Cooks. I have a fun post today, you probably remember my call last month, for readers to submit photos of any Djalali Cooks recipes they have created. Well, you guys did not disappoint! I received a number of contributions, a few of which I am so excited to share with you today. So let’s get to some reader favorites!
The French Omelette
This one goes way back! My very first post on Kelly’s Kitchen at Style at a Certain Age was a French Omelette. A wonderful reader named Sylvia has been following my recipes since that first post; she has been working on her French Omelette technique ever since. Sylvia shares her omelette with us today. I have since made a Western Omelet for my How to Make Series. The technique is the same, except the Western Omelet is folded, instead of rolled.
How to Make: Eggs
Eggs make an easy, quick meal, but some egg-cooking techniques foil even the best of us. In this post of How to Make, I share my techniques for getting the perfect poached egg, egg sandwich scrambled egg, and omelet. If you’ve always struggled with eggs, I hope this post provides you with an easy guide to getting it right, every time.
Honey Butter Chicken
Lovely reader, Jill sent along her Honey Butter Chicken. Instead of serving with plain rice, she went for leftover egg fried rice, which looks amazing! Jill noted that this recipe was nice and quick for a weeknight meal. Honey Butter Chicken is a Korean-inspired recipe with flavors that are super versatile. Do what Jill did and make it your own!
This contribution comes from my Mom, Terry. She makes a lot of Djalali Cooks recipes, and this is one of her favorites. These Middle Eastern chicken meatballs are so fragrant and flavorful! They’re great for having on hand to cook up and have with a salad, or in a wrap. I think they’d be great over saffron rice, too.
Read the original post and get the recipe for Chicken Kofta with Yogurt Sauce. For another Middle Eastern meatball recipe, try Lamb Meatballs and Snap Peas with Feta and Mint. Middle Eastern meatballs are healthy, delicious and super-versatile to mix into rice dishes and salads.
Buttermilk-Vanilla Panna Cotta with Berries and Honey
Our last reader favorite today comes from Debbie, who said this Buttermilk Vanilla Panna Cotta with Berries and Honey was “simply delicious”. Not only delicious, this desert is simple to make and it’s definitely impressive! With tangy buttermilk to offset the sweetness, this panna cotta is refreshing and light. Serve it with berries and you have one special dessert!

Well friends, I want to thank you all so much for your support and readership. It’s been so much fun to see the dishes you all like to make! I want to specially thank Sylvia, Jill, Debbie and Terry for their contributions. And thank you to everyone else who contributed photos of your Djalali Cooks dishes for our Reader Favorites!
