Coriander, my best friend??? Spicy chicken curry

Standard

Hi,

I promised to share this recipe a long time ago and finally I do it;) When thinking of a dish for my friends, I got inspired by one of the Albert Heijn magazines; I decided to cook Thai.

I must say, I never liked coriander. One of my Indian friends serves it quite a lot in their regional dishes. These were the only coriander dishes I liked. I was always wondering why Nigella Lawson is so enthusiastic about it. Well, I decided to take a risk, follow the recipe and use coriander.

I tell you! I felt in love with it! 🙂

What about you? Are you a fun of coriander?

 

 

Just to warn you… You need to spend some time in the kitchen; it’s not a quick recipe but I tell you… it’s definitely worth of your time! Let’s get to the point.

Ingredients (for four people):

–          300g rice

–          4cm fresh ginger

–          1 red pepper

–          2tbsp. oil

–          2 garlic cloves

–          2tsp. sesame oil

–          300g chicken breast

–          1 can coconut milk

–          1 pack basil

–          1 pack coriander

–          2tbsp. fish sauce (I used 8 king prawns instead)

–          2tsp. sugar

–          2tbsp. corn starch

–          1 lime

–          Salt and pepper to taste

Know-how:

  1. Cook rice.
  2. Grate ginger.
  3. Remove pits from red pepper and slice into thin pieces.
  4. Fry ginger and red pepper in oil and sesame oil for about 3min.
  5. Add chopped chicken and fry for about 4min.
  6. Blend coconut milk with basil and 2/3 coriander. Add it together with fish sauce (I used 8 sliced king prawns instead) and sugar. Cook.
  7. Stir corn starch with 4tbsp. water and add to sauce. Cook unit sauce gets a bit thicker.
  8. Grate off the very outside skin of the lime peel and squeeze it. Add to sauce together with salt and pepper. Cook for short time.
  9. Serve with cooked rice, and sprinkle coriander over the top.
  10. Voila 🙂

Key Lime Pie

Standard

Hi,

The food I present is Joe’s Crab Shack specialty! A tart pie in a graham cracker crust, topped with whipped cream. Really great and reminds me of hot summer.

Ingredients:

–          5 egg yolks

–          1 can of sweetened condensed milk

–          ½ cup of “key” lime juice

–          1 ½ cups of graham crackers

–          ¼ cup of sugar

–          1/3 cup of melted butter

–          Whipped cream

Know-how:

  1. Mix in a bowl crackers and sugar. Pour in the butter and mix all ingredients. If you don’t have graham crackers, use any other crackers.
  2. Press into the pie plate and bake in ca. 180 oC for about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Cool down, preferably in the fridge, before using it.
  4. Combine the egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk and lime juice. Mix well all ingredients. Pour into the graham cracker crust. Bake in ca. 180 oC for 30 minutes.
  5. Allow to cool down.
  6. Top with whipped cream.

It’s really easy and very tasty.

Enjoy! *OnMyDish.wordpress.com*
