My friend Michell is a bundle of all sorts of great things. She was actually the person who got me online and blogging. She goes with me to protest marches, beach hops, dries my tears when I am sad and giggles with me when I am being a bit of a nong.
She is also Misty’s Mum.
THANK YOU MICHELLE !!!!
I used it last night to make my own version of Nasi Goreng.
I cooked the rice for twenty minutes then let it sit for ten. After this I rinsed and drained it well. In the meantime I sautéed the prawn cutlets until nicely brown, then added diced veges, For this one I used peas, carrots, corn and some sliced chilli. You could use anything that you want really. Next time I might add some sliced beans and broccoli to it. Once they were cooked [but still crunchy…I hate soggy veges] I added the rice. The rice should be cold and as dry as you can get it when you add it. Then I cheated and used a packet Nasi Goreng paste mix I love that contains none of the foods that are off my list for now. I mixed that in well and fried on a reasonably moderate heat for about twenty minutes.
During that time I blended about 1 cup of coconut milk with about 150 grams of cashews and a clove of garlic, blending it really well after my last experience. This I then put in a pan and added a teaspoon of gluten free flour and thickened it slowly.
Once the rice was cooked and had a bit of crunch to it, I served it up, added sliced tomatoes, the cashew sauce and dug in. Next time I hope not to forget to slice and throw on some spring onion with the tomato. Which will be tonight as there are leftovers.
