Sapthagiri: The Spicy Tastes of Indian Cuisine

November 19, 2014 5:03 pm

Jersey City diners looking for vegetarian food that doesn’t skimp on flavor have been singing the praises of Sapthagiri since it opened. This exceptional southern Indian restaurant serves up great food at reasonable prices, and all of it is completely meatless!

The menu is extensive, so here’s a quick rundown of some favorites. Dosas, those famous Indian crepes stuffed with a variety of ingredients, are cooked to perfection and amazingly filling. Among the entrees, the Manchurian cauliflower is a treat, showing an Indian rendition of Chinese cuisine. If you can’t decide what to order, go for a thali – this is a set menu of a variety of tastings, guaranteed to tantalize your palate. Be warned, however, that when the menu says spicy it means tongue-blastingly spicy. Order mild if it’s your first visit!

Making a Pie? Here Are the Best Apples for Baking

November 12, 2014 6:39 pm

Not all apple pies are created equal, and a large part of your pie’s taste depends on the type of apples that you use. While some apples lose their flavor, others are simply too tart for a sweet pie. Don’t fret, because this list of the best apples for baking will steer you in the right direction the next time you decide to put your oven to use.

  • McIntosh. McIntosh apples are some of the most popular apples for baking because they have a tender flesh that quickly turns soft and juicy when heated in the oven. They also offer the perfect combination of sweet and tangy tastes, which is essential for a great apple pie.
  • Granny Smith. Granny Smith apples offer a bit more of a bite than most, and their firm texture stays in tact even in heartier recipes. No matter how many other seasonings you use in your dessert, this type of apple can hold its own.
  • Honeycrisp. This lesser-known apple is very large and crisp, which makes it ideal for caramelizing or baking for long periods of time. These apples are often used in tarts or other dishes in which the apples are directly exposed to the heat of the oven.
