Strawberries in purgatory, a strawberry chilly chilli sorbet

Not only do you get icecream but a wonderful little story woven everything about this blog/magazine..Amazing 🙂

The snobberies of “fein dining” anyone? Cool strawberry sorbet delicately embroidered with chilli?  Well hardly, she’s just a cheeky little strawberry sorbet, though pert and perky, with a pop of fireworks.  M’lady remains a portrait of serene beauty, sweet, of a firm curvaceous figure. Though ruddy complexion, from pale and insignificant she becomes very red-faced, a little seedy on the outside with a rather hairy chin, whist sporting a rather risqué green hat, she remains highly popular at sporting events at this time of year.

A quintessential part of a (currently soggy) luxurious golden English summer. Her melange of sweet and sharp tintilates the taste buds with nefarious flare. Courting said taste buds, she remains plumptous and occasionally a little tart! The sullen beauty sweetly prevalent now has the yearning  to be come a vamp, a red lipstick lady in red who can be hot stuff too? Wanten, brazen, she decides…

The commonsense Indonesian and Malaysian cookery book, 124pp.
by Ella Mei Wong
Angus and Robertson Publishers, Sydney, 1978
Cooking on page 32

Until I started to write this post, I hadn’t realised that this book is part of a series of commonsense cookery books. There’s a general edition, as well as Indian, Greek, International and Chinese versions, with the latter also written by Ella Mei Wong.

I’ve never seen any of the others on my expeditions through second-hand bookstores, but I’ll be on the lookout in future.

As far as I can tell, Wong has written about 10 cookbooks with most focusing on Chinese food. She has been a noted teacher of Chinese and Southeast Asia cooking, and is well-known in the Far East for her television programs on food and home economics.

I can’t remember when or where I bought this book, but $6.50 is written in pencil on the…

This is the Green Chicken!  A kilo of chicken, chopped into small pieces, green chilli, coriander, some mint, green onions and the usual salt to taste. Of course, to give it some more spice, I threw in half a teaspoon of black pepper powder as well.
Chop a bunch of onions, the green chilli (a few), the coriander and the mint leaves in a chopper and keep aside. Also add some garlic and ginger, finely chopped. Clean two bunch of fresh spinach leaves and boil for a couple of minutes and keep aside as well.
Fry the chicken in a little oil and throw in the onion mixture. Fry until the chicken is golden brown. Then add the spinach after causing with a fork so that the leaves are not pasty but broken.
Cook for 15 to 20 minutes on a low flame.
Serve with Indian flatbread, or steamed rice, or…

Teriyaki Marinated Steak

This looks amazing doesn’t it?..It had Jamie salivating so definately one to try..

Frugal Hausfrau

There was a time when Flank steak was cheap! And so it goes with sudden popularity – a rise in price. Never mind that, though, because back in the day my Mom made this recipe with the elusive “London Broil.” Well, “almost” this recipe because I’ve up the game and the flavor on this old workhorse recipe.
