Chicken Tikka Sandwich Baguette

 

This is my version of an easy Chicken Tikka Sandwich Baguette. Who can resist delicious Chicken Tikka? Well this is a simplified but delicious version made into a  hearty sandwich. Crusty Italian Bread or Baguettes will be the preferred bread for this Sandwich. You need that hard crusty exterior to compliment the meaty textured filling. Soft breads will not do justice.

And do try my version of Smooth Coriander Chutney Dressing.  Give it a go. Pretty straightforward, this one!  My kids like to have the extra tikkas with the chutney.

How to make Bolognese Sauce

Perfectly delicious Bolognese Sauce for Lasagna (Lasagne) Recipe, Spaghetti or other types of Pasta. Thanks to Cat for the real Italian ‘Sugo Alla Bolognese‘ Recipe. Layer home made or store bought lasagna sheets with this lovely meat sauce as well as béchamel sauce. The Bolognese Sauce is finely scented with aromatic herbs ( rosemary, basil, sage, oregano). So much better than a jar from your supermarket and  quite easy actually. You can make it a little looser or thicker in consistency, depending on how your intend on using it. I absolutely love the rosemary in the Bolognese Sauce – I would never omit it. Cosi Buono!!! Delizioso!!!

Grape Squash / Grape Cordial

Grape Squash / Grape Cordial 

  When you really need to beat the heat, Cordials or Fruit Squashes are really the way to do just that! Just add water or spritz (soda water) to the concentrated juice syrup and you’re good to go!

I love this ‘ Grape Squash / Grape Cordial ‘ especially. You can make it  ‘ au naturel’ and keep it in the fridge for over a week, longer if frozen OR you can use preservatives if you are making a large batch for storage in those hot – hot months. Great if you got a big box of grapes and don’t know how to use them.

Vietnamese Coffee Recipe – Iced Coffee (Cà phê sữa đá ) or Hot (Cà phê sữa nóng)




vietnamese coffee recipe Vietnamese Coffee Recipe 1 vietnam coffee recipe with video

Vietnamese Coffee Recipe

 

Coffee was introduced to Vietnam in 1857 by the French and  the country slowly grew as a producer of coffee in Asia.

One of the best filtered coffee is made in Vietnam.  Trung Nguyen being one of the most widely sold brands. It is addictive aromatic dark roasted coffee to die for!

In the US , a brand called Cafe Du Monde French Roast Chicory coffee is used as a good substitute but it’s not quite as splendid as the original. In Vietnam, a coffee filter is used to get a good quality coffee decoction and this is served black or with sweetened condensed milk. It can be served hot or cold. Often the small stainless steel coffee filter will be placed at your table and you can watch the coffee slowly drip into your cup as you enjoy the company of your friends/ loved ones. This waiting and anticipation of that lovely cup of coffee is a wonderful part of the Vietnamese Culture.

How to make Perfect Yoghurt

How to make Perfect Yoghurt

I use a LOT of yoghurt in my cooking, in salads, dips and I love to eat it plain as well.Buying that much yoghurt is a lot of dollars and not much (sense)… when  making absolutely perfect yoghurt is so easy and saves you so much money!   You need a very small quantity of yoghurt to start with and it should be very fresh.  I make yoghurt regularly… It took me a long time to make perfect Yoghurt. Sometimes my yoghurt would be slimy, and I never understood why.   I later realized that straining the milk mixture to remove the cream is an important part to making the yoghurt perfect.  You also need a good quality full cream milk – I tried so many varieties before finding the perfect one.
The temperature is also a vital part.   And you do NOT need a thermometer.  Your index finger will tell you!   Follow my recipe  for perfect Home made yoghurt and trust me!

Khubz – Arabian Pita Bread




how to make khubz at home

Khubz – Arabian Pita Bread

This Bread is sooo comforting! Making Wraps/ Shawarmas  or dipped in Hummus. Even with your favorite curries.

Khubz is the Arabian bread that is stocked up in Arab homes at all times.  If you live in Meditteranean or Gulf Countries it is available  and quite cheap…. but If you live somewhere where its not available- You can make your own quite easily.

It’ quite easy to make at home as well: I have played around with these recipes for a long time. And both methods – with and without yeast make a great home made Khubz made on a griddle pan.

Ghee Rice / NeyChoru made in a Rice Cooker



ghee rice

Ghee Rice / NeyChoru

Ghee Rice  or ‘Ney Choru’ is very easy to make and is one of those dishes that you can make for Sunday Lunches or Weeknight dinners very simply! In our house we like our ghee rice with a good Country Style Chicken Curry or a  Yummy Beef Curry It’s also great with Dal – TryDal & Ridgegourd Curry

This rice is wonderfully aromatic and the grains are light and fluffy!

You can make the ghee rice in an ordinary pot with a tight lid and simmer on low heat, covered till the rice is fluffy – You have to watch it.  If you have a thermal cooker, you can prepare the rice and bring the water to boil in the inner pot and then close the thermal cooker for an hour -You will get a nice fluffy Ghee rice. And my favorite way: using a Rice Cooker. Fry the Onions and spices  right in your rice cooker, add water and cook closed! When you Rice cooker lights off, your ghee rice is perfect. Switch it off, and fluff up with a fork. (Do not leave on ‘WARM’ setting as this will cause a layer of crisped rice on the bottom.)

Ney Choru Ghee Rice

Ghee Rice!
