Nasi Goreng – a real WOW!

Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng plus a cheeky cheat ingredient that makes life easier

 

I do love a ‘cheat’ ingredient that makes life a little easier.

My favourite is frozen chopped garlic, which is a fab time saver (and I no longer find garlic bulbs sprouting green shoots at the back of my condiment drawer).

Now I’ve just discovered a new favourite. One recipe from Quick After-Work uses ready-made crispy fried onions. Who knew?

Sold in tubs, ready-made crispy fried onions give a handy savoury crunch to all sorts of dishes.

Yes, fried onions are not difficult to cook but this handy little tub means you don’t have to dirty an extra pan and suffer watering eyes chopping onions.

 

Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng is also new to me but WOW. It’s so delicious (yet so simple). It’s an Indonesian fried-rice dish, usually topped with a fried egg.

Rick Stein describes it as “one of the world’s great comfort foods” and he’s right, it really is.

Give it a try and see if you agree.

A perfect Burns Night pudding

Whisky Mac Coffee Jelly Shots

Whisky Mac Coffee Jelly Shots


Burns Night celebrates the life and poetry of the Scottish poet Robert Burns. Rabbie Burns, as he is affectionately known, penned more than 550 poems and songs before his death in 1796.

At a Burns Supper, Haggis is usually served (piped in with bagpipes should you own them!) with ‘neeps and tatties’ or swede and potatoes, mashed together with plenty of butter.

This Dairy Diary dessert, using Scottish whisky, is a perfect Burns Supper pud.

 

RECIPE

 

Following the meal; recitals of Rabbie’s poems and then a rousing rendition of Auld Lang Syne finishes off the evening.

Enjoy your Burns’ Night folks and Lang may yer lum reek.
