This marinade is awesome! The chicken comes out perfectly every time. I learned it from my mother when I was in high school, then I grew up and went away to college. And like it happens with everyone, her cooking evolved and she just stopped making it! (0_O) icon-arrow-left my face when she told me! This was 10 years later and she had stopped making it — why? She said she moved on to better things. What?! Better things? I had such found memories of this chicken from when I was younger that it just made me a little sad.
But you know, that’s just life, we all move on to better things at some point, don’t we? 2014 is almost over and I’m already looking forward to better things in 2015. It’s a reflective time of the year.
On that note, when I recalled this recipe last month I realised I hadn’t made a post on it yet. I had to make it happen before the year was out. I too have made some adjustments to it since that day. So here it is… Continue reading
If you’re looking for something easy and fun to make to treat your family or friends with this summer, look no further. Ice cream is a well loved dessert. Every time we have a family gathering, the food is eaten with enthusiasm (it’s always that good) but you always see the brightest faces when dessert is served. Most especially when it’s ice cream. I remember even as a child, when ice cream was served for dessert we all rushed to make sure we didn’t miss any.
a slice of summer goodness!
As the summer is kicking in and Christmas is just around the corner, this is a delightful treat. And the best part is it can be in any shape you want, any size you want (well, as big as you can make space for in your freezer), any number of flavours you want and it’s EASY! Continue reading
Here’s another one with coconut. A very simple sauce but yummy!
My husband likes fish, pan fried, deep fried, grilled. I don’t make a lot of it because I’m always at a loss on the sauce side of things. He doesn’t necessarily want a sauce but I always feel like I need to make one. Otherwise fries and ketchup end up being the default accompaniments every time.
look at all that mouth watering colour!
This sauce was an aha! moment. I was thinking about what else I could do with coconut at the time. Continue reading
In her own words:
This is one of my favourite ways to make chicken. It’s so simple and can be so diverse depending on how much coconut and curry powder you add to it. So if you feel like having it spicy — just add more curry, if you want some heat — throw in some chilli, if you want more of the coconut flavour — add more coconut. It’s really up to you. For today I’m making it light.
Starting with the chicken, let it cook in a good size pot so that all the pieces have their own space and are not stacked, alone with just a bit of salt, covered on medium heat. Once all the water evaporates, add a bit of cooking oil and fry.
while the chicken is cooking you can prepare the other ingredients: slice 2 tomatoes, slice half a green pepper, chop up about a cup of dhania an slice a mid-sized onion
Remember to continue to stir and turn the chicken, it’s easy to get lost in the chopping. Continue reading
