I'm just back from school, well I didn't go to class, I'm to old for that! :))
I was at a buffet held in honour of our Spanish guests.
In the school were Sofia (doughter N°4)
goes, they do a lot of different exchanges.
this time it is between our italian school and a school from Madrid. olè! :)))
Sofia was in Madrid in November, living at Luis home..and now he's here!
I love this things, you get to know young people from
different countries, from different cultures.
at Easter will have Germans visiting, and Sofia will go to Munich in june.
now, yesterday with Luis here, I tried some Indonesian dishes...:)))
I explained that I belong to the bloggeraid, that I travel with Joan...and that in this case..
HE will be a guinea pig like everybody else in the family!!! :)))
8 pieces of chicken
5 kemirie nuts (I used pine)
1 clover of fresh garlic
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp ketumbar (coriander seed)
1/2 tps cumin
1 tps laos (I used fresh ginger)
2 dann jeruk purut (or keffir lime) (I used two leaves from my lemon plant)
4 tbsp of olive oil(or other vegetable oil)
165gr of coco milk
let toast the kemirie nuts in a pan with some vegetable oil.
take them away and then crush them.
put the nut crusch, together with sugar, cumin, garlic, ketumbar, laos and dann jeruk purut.
add some other oil and tost, mixing all the time.
for about 2min.
take away and put the chicken pieces in the pan.
roast the pieces well all around, on high heat.
then add the toasted spices, and cook for 15-20min (dipends on how big you chicken pieces are)
then add the coco milk and finish cooking.
serv with pilaf rice added with some curcuma, that gives colour and taste.
I don't have the indonesian name for this dish...in my swedish cook book, it is written
"indonesiska frikadeller"..sounds like a danish dish!!
(frikadeller is the danish name for meatballs! :)))
250gr of potatoes
500gr of mince meat
oli to fry
cook the potatoes. peel and mash them.
mix the mince meat, the mased potatoes, the ground garlic and the two yalks, very well.
let rest for an hour in a cool place.
make small meatballs that you fry in vegetable oil.
serve warm or cold (they are delicious cold!)
of course there is a vegetable version! :))
a pice of leek
peel all the vegetables and chop in very tiny pieces.
cook for aprx 15min the mash it all together with a yalk.
if it is to liquid you can add some breadcrumbs
fry like the meatballs.
the chicken was very very tasty, not spicy but very tasty..I can immagine that with the proper spices it is even more tasty!
the meatballs, were good but not excellent.
when I added some curry, some curcuma, some ginger...we got along together better ;))
