Flying over Oaxaca

Last month I put out a call for international and regional recipes that I can cook this year on EatingPlaces. I received some excellent suggestions! So with your help, I’ve put together the list of items I’ll be trying out this year.

1. Oxtail Soup – different versions from all over the world, including China, South Africa, Korea, and Jamaica (recommended by Renee, with another vote from Krystal)

2. Bobotie – a South African baked dish of minced meat with an egg topping (recommended by Renee)

3. Kugel – a Jewish noodle dish I grew up eating, made either savory or sweet (recommended by Michelle)

4. Champorado – chocolate-flavored rice porridge from the Philippines (recommended by Bianca)

5. Scallion Pancakes with Spicy Dipping Sauce – Chinese snack of fried flour pancakes

6. Pierogi – Polish dumplings with a variety of stuffings, including potatoes, onions, cheese, cabbage, or meat

7. Jambalaya – Louisiana Creole rice dish

8. Pupusas – Salvadorian corn tortilla filled with cheese, meat, or beans

9. Colcannon – Irish dish made from mashed potatoes and kale

10. Injera – Ethiopian flatbread

11. Scotch Eggs – hard-boiled eggs wrapped in sausage and breadcrumbs from Scotland

12. Masala Chai – Indian hot spice tea

13. Lemon Rice – South Indian fragrant rice

So that’s the list! If you missed the opportunity to share an idea, just leave a comment below, as I’m always looking for new dishes to try out.

EDIT: As you may have noticed, I did not even come close to achieving this ’13 Dishes in 2013′ goal! However, I would like to extend this to 2014. So, continue to look forward to these dishes, and please send over any recipes/tips/other suggestions.

    Sounds like a fun project. I am interested to hear how your Injera turns out. I attempted to make it last week and maybe I used the wrong type of skillet, but it just didn’t work for me. I also found that when the fermented mixture is ready, you need to use it all it or it will go bad.
