Crispy Tofu with Chillies and Pork


Gout is always the back end traitor of Tofu. Do you believe this?

For our folks, they split this curd, but for vegetarians this is a favorite. I like Tofu. I actually like it a lot. It is bland but the flexiblility of it is endless. I can use it with any "on the spur" of the moment recipe. Most of the time, I like it crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. This way I can enjoy both worlds in my taste buds.

This recipe I cooked with Tofu is a favorite. But since, I had pork glimered with chilli oil, it doesn't look so healthy. Sometimes it's good to cheat the healthy foods to have balance in your life. So if you love Tofu and Chillies, start taking down notes.

Fried Spring Rolls with Stuffed Veggies


I'm back to cooking now guys. It feels like ages have been gone since I posted a recipe in here. My schedule has been really flat out. I was working non stop the whole month of September. Did I tell you I was in Sydney? It was a beautiful city. Australia is such a nice country. The exeperience we had there is truly one of the most unforgettable ones and something I will forever look back to keep me smiling.

...and if you want to know about the food experience I had there, well not much. Aside from the fish and chips, and kangaroo steak, my food trip was at minimum. And I must say, a huge part of me was screaming for Asian food. That's right. I can't believe that my Asian taste buds penetrateed me more than I expected. It was surprising how excited I'll be whenever we stop by at any Asian restaurant considering we are in OZ. I really thought I would be estatic to try Aussie food, but there are just really a lot of Asian restaurants out there that you wouldn't be able to help yourself and buy in.

So because I really missed this food, (and this is also one of my favorite snacks), in the Philippines we call it "Lumpiang Gulay" which is Fried Spring Rolls with Stuffed Veggies.  This is an all time favorite recipe I hoped I was able to prepare and serve when we were in Sydney.

Potato Balls stuffed with Chicken and Cheese


I have been dying to try the stuffed recipe, so I thought I bring a little fun in my food blog. I am so excited about this concept of stuffing chicken and cheese inside a potato ball. What do you think? Have you tried it?

This is the first time I've used potato. Well, I'm addicted to fries, but mashing it from scratch and using it as the base dough is a new experiment.
So I can only hope for luck.

Potota Balls stuffed with Chicken and Cheese


Ingredients

3 Pieces of Potatoes
Thinly sliced chicken breast
Salt & Pepper
Cheddar Cheese
Bread crumbs
Egg


Method
1. Boil the 3 unpeeled potatoes
2. Boil the chicken breast
3. When the potatoes are soft and cooked, mash them (add salt and pepper)
4. Slice the chicken breast thinly (like shreds)
5. Grate the cheddar cheese
6. Mold the mashed potatoes in your palms to make small balls and stuff it with 
thinly sliced chicken and grated cheese
7. Crack the egg, and separate the white from the yolk
8. Coat the potato ball with egg white to have sticky layering, 
then roll it in the bread crumbs
9. Fry these babies until golden brown

So I got lucky, when I found the Gravy!
Thank God for the Gravy! These babies tasted excellent!
