This is the second part of our cricket recipes post. The first one was African Babotie. Chicken Jalfrezi – An Indian Curry This recipe requires some preparation work. Ideally, you should make and marinade the chicken for 24 hours, but if you don’t want to wait that long, then at least 2 to 3 hours. Part 1 – Marinade Ingredients: 500g chicken breast 5 cloves of garlic 2inch piece of root ginger 1 teaspoon of Tumeric 2 teaspoons of Garam Masala ½ teaspoon of salt. Method
Do you like Cricket? I’m not so keen but Blokey likes it rather a bit. So he’s been in the kitchen and has been cooking food inspired by countries involved in the Cricket world cup = India and Africa. India spicy curry, and Africa gives us a lovely comfort food dish. The curry might knock you for six though, so be careful! Babotie – A South African Curried Mince Dish Ingredients: 1kg Mince Beef 2 medium onions (or 3 small in this case) 3 eating apples 500ml milk 2 slices white bread 4 large eggs 2 tablespoons of Mango Chutney 1 tablespoon of curry powder (or more to your taste) 2 tablespoons of Tomato Puree 4 tablespoons of sultanas 2 bay leaves Method Put 300ml of milk into a jug. Add in the 4 eggs and lightly beat. Put the remaining 200ml of milk in a […]
This is so bad for you, but awesome anyway. I am not responsible for any weight gain caused by this post. 😉 My Blokey is a foodie. He likes to experiment, not exactly Heston Blumenthal crazy, but its good! Today he’s made something that looks like scotch eggs, but its far from boring savoury snackage. This is food porn.
Last weekend I was lucky enough to get sent some Morrisons shopping vouchers and asked for my opinions on Morrisons prices, quality and the experience as a whole. Morrisons were extremely generous and sent hundreds of blogging parents shopping vouchers, so we could all give them a go, and look out for the “I’m Cheaper” logos. To be honest we normally shop elsewhere, but with a new store open in Gloucester this was the perfect excuse to go to M instead.
I am not keen on overly commercial, over priced cards, or flowers. Instead I am making Blokey a gift. Its no secret that I can’t cook, in fact I go to basic cookery lessons. So I am making chocolates. I have some super strong Co-op fairtrade 85% cocoa dark chocolate, and some Cadbury DM fruit and nut. They are like the opposites, the Co-op being a coniseurs type, where you feel sick if you eat too much as its so rich. The DM is like comfort, its not too posh, not to cheap and its easy to eat all of it. I figure a mixture of these makes perfection. Like sweetness and bitterness, too posh versus normal.
Kids bored? Want to bake something easy, but still messy and fun? Well here is the cake my son made this weekend. Step one make normal cake mixture, we went with chocy as it looks like mud. You want the cake raised and cracked on top, like double chocy muffins in shops. While the cake is cooling mix up some icing sugar and water. Split in to two little cups or bowls and add yellow colouring to one, red colouring and vanilla flavouring into the to other.
After my poor Blokey had made me cookies, whilst I merrily slept, he continues baking and cooking. Isn’t he good? This time, Cake! Yummy chocolatey birthday cake yumminess! Fudge Cake Click here to continue reading the recipe at Cadbury.co.uk Let’s be honest, look at the screen grab from Cadburys website. How awesome does this cake look. Hubby had the same reaction as me “Oooh I want to try that one!” Here are the ingredients, icing sugar, baking butter, flour, cocoa powder, and of course, the Cadbury Fudge bars which oddly are not in the picture. At this point stick the oven on at 180 degrees to warm up. (I would really recommend you read the recipe on Cadbury.co.uk which is linked underneath that lovely first image.) Ready to go. Weighing out the ingredients, on the scales is flour, baking powder and the cocoa. In the mixing bowl are a pair […]
I have recently joined Collective Bias, or #CBias as it gets called on twitter. It is a shoppers programme where a few bloggers are chosen for each project, and then you have to plan and go shopping for a particular product, and photo it like crazy. I felt like a spy in Sainsburys. My Google+ photo album – my (not so) Top Secret mission! This mission was made for me, go and buy Diary Milk chocolate by Cadburys. Well it would be rude not to accept wouldn’t it? The mission was cookery, so I’ve had to bribe my partner in to cooking as I can burn salad me. Truly I am a bad cook, and he is great, so it’s the logical thing in this house that the Daddy cooks. First up Dairy Milk Cookies. Two more Yummy Cadbury baking blog posts follow this post shortly… stay tuned! Fudge Cake […]
