What are you cooking today?

Do you need to put anything on the underside of the dough or on the griddle to stop the dough sticking? Or does it come away naturally once the dough is sufficiently cooked?

I season my cast iron pan  

First lightly oil the pan with canola oil. any oil would work but canola is best. 

place in oven for 30 minutes at 450-500 f  

take out let cool a little, oil again and repeat. 

Nothing will stick to it. 

PS: place the pan in the oven upside down, you don't want any oil pooling in an area and create an uneven coating.

No, although is does have a nice coating of Olive oil, from fermenting in frig, but no different than making flat bread.  After a minute of so, I can even slide it around.   Just need to peek under, make sure it's crisping up evenly.

I rub a little corn meal on the bottom.

@sirineou If going the corn meal route, may have a problem finding locally, (location dependent) but they may have polenta here (same thing), and I used to use that, instead of corn meal, when making Scrapple here.

Is that to stop your underpants from sticking on a humid day? 

 

I just use talcum powder if required...   but corn meal may be more economical!

That would be corn starch, not meal.

I just shower and change my underwear regularly, why not try that?

Now that we cleared out the oatmeal controversy 

\and finally my wife stopped laughing at my for putting cornmeal on my bottom. 

Though I wondering how corn starch would be any better.

Wife showed me a much better way to use corn starch.

 

chicken covered in a flour and cornstarch butter and fried crispy

stir-fried with onions chili peppers , garlic, and basil. with her secret mix of tangy , spicy. sweet sauce.

the only thing that could had made it better would had been cashews , But beggars can't be choosers. 

Aroy mak mak.

Chicken soup in a lemon and egg sauce. 

 

Decided to give making chicken soup another try.  This time I used the pressure-cooked to see how it would work.

Sauteed chopped onion and garlick , Tossed in  a few chicken thighs  and legs parts to brown a bit. 

Water, salt , pepper,  and for good luck a couple of cubes of chicken stock. 

Pressure cooked for 25 minutes. Placed pressure cooker under running water to release the pressure, 

and opened.

Removed the bones of the chicken parts , returned the meet in the pot,and added half a cup of rice,   chopped celery, and diced carrots, slow boiled until rice was done. (nott too much rice depending on how much you are making , otherwise you will end up with a very thick stew. 

Here comes the important part. It is critical that the instructions are followed closely.

   Three eggs beatten well , I used my milk frothing mixer, 

two lemons squeezed and added to the eggs. then beatten together more  .

Ok so this is the criticall part. In the bowl where you have the egg and lemon mixture , slowly add with a large serving spoon, add liquid from the simmering soup while whipping . This is done to bring the egg and lemon mixture , slowly up to the soup temperature  without cooking the eggs and having agg-drop soup. If you bring the temperature of the egg mix up too quick, it will curdle. 

It sounds more difficult than it is, Just slowly ad soup fluid until the mix is hot to the touch, but keep mixing to keep the temperature even in the whole mix. 

Then pure the mix in the simmering soup without mixing  much. let simmer for 5-10 minutes and it is done. 

Trust me , if you like lemony taste, you would love this dish.

Did you use fresh or frozen toads? :whistling:

A quick chimchi noodle soup w/eggs.  Packaged chimchi from 7-11, the wife didn't finish while O&A, along with last 2 eggs in frig, and rice noodle.  Quick & easy ...

image.png.b31f8fc4a7e0127f02c3fd30a4bcc7ef.png

 

Wife makes good chimchi, but after a couple weeks of being ready, (she makes way too much), it's too sour for me, and she's stuck eating the rest, and usually in a soup, as a bit much for her also, I think.

I love Kim Chi Jjigae stew, but it does not love me,. Still I make it every once in a while, 

Funny story.

  I was at Macro and decided to get some Kim Chi to make my stew.

They sell chopped up double bags of it by where the milk and things are. 

Anyway when I got home it looked a bit strange , I read the bag and it said Kim Chi papaya . So what the hell!! I made it and it was not bad, but not as good a cabbage kim Chi. And now I had a leftover bah of Kin Chi Papaya  

So next time I was at Makro I decided to to get some real kim chi and got a double bag of it. 

A few days later I  was in the mood for Kim Chi stew , went to the refrigerator took out a bag.

It was Kim Chi Papaya,  so I thought ok put it back and get the double unopened bag  of the real Kim Chi I got a few days ago, didn't even think to look at it I open one bag and it still looks strange. I read the bag and it is Kim Chi papaya. 

Now I am really confused. Look back in the refrigerator , yep papaya, look at the new bags, Yeap Papaya also !!

Not sure how , but I somehow bought two more bags of Kim Chi papaya , so now I am the proud owner of three bags of Kim Chi papayas. 

Any one interested I am willing to part with them at a very reasonable price :cheesy:

That , looks really good. 

I just got some flour tortillas from Macro this morning . and got some frozen salmon steaks . I think that sounds like a great idea for one day next week. 

Is that Paprika I see on the Salmon?

Curry

Overhead photo of Chicken Curry in a black skillet, fresh off the stove

What kind of curry is it?  Looks great by the way, I love a good Curry.

I often make it, but There is a guy in Khon Kaen  who makes currys  freezes them and ships all over Thailand. I am fortunate that I live near him so every month or so I meet up with him and buy 10-15 of them 

If you like hot, His madras and vindaloo chicken curry  are  brilliant!!

PS: I have no affiliation with the man .
