As an addition to the stew, and general talk about food that sometimes turns up, let's have a thread for recipes!

I share the family recipe for gado gado, an Indonesian vegetable stew with you.

Ingredients:

stew:
- 1/3 califlower, but only the top pieces.
- 1 large carrot chopped in rectengular pieces
- 200 gr. runner beans chopped in bits of 2 cm.
- 16 small mushrooms
- 1/3 paksoi or Chinese cabbage chopped up in large pieces
- 1 large onion chopped in large chunks.
- 100 gr. bean sprouts
- four or five spoons of coconut cream
- four our five spoons of ketjap manis (sweet soya sauce)
- a cucumber, sliced in slices of one cm.
- 3 hard boiled eggs, sliced.


sauce:
- 1 jar of peanut butter (take a good, not too chemical brand)
- 2,5 dl coconut milk
- 0.5 dl ketjap manis (sweet soya sauce)
- two teaspoons sambal manis, one teaspoon sambal brandal (sambal is a hot indonesian paste of made of red hot chilli peppers. If you can't find sambal, just chop up one or two red hot chilli peppers).
- a handfull of crushed peanuts.
- two pieces of garlic, pressed.
- a little bit of oil.

How to make:
- Put a pan with boiling water on the stove. put a large, heat resistant glass bowl on top of the pan, so that the boiling water heats the bowl. Put the coconut cream and ketjap manis in the bowl.

- Boil a large quantity of water in another large pan. Add salt to the water.

- boil the califlour for four minutes and then take it out of the water and put it in the bowl.
- boil the carrots for four minutes in the same water and then add them to the bowl.
- boil the runner beans for four minutes in the same water and add them to the bowl.
- boil the onion for three minutes in the same water and add it to the bowl.
- boil the mushrooms for two minutes in the same water and add them to the bowl.
- boil the Chinese cabbage for two minutes in the same water and add them to the bowl.
- boil the bean sprouts for one minute and at them to the bowl.

Meanwhile, stir the bowl every once in a while and maybe add a bit more coconut cream and ketjap manis. When you've boiled all the vegetables, add the cucumber and boiled eggs.

In the meantime, you can also make the sauce.

Shortly fry the garlic. Then add the ketjap manis and half of the coconut milk. Add the peanut butter. Stirr while heating. Add the rest of the coconut milk. Add the sambal and crushed peanuts.

How to serve:
Put white rice on four plates, put the vegetable stew on top of the rice and the sauce on top of that. Then sprinkle with cashew nuts and fried onions (the kind you also put on hamburgers and the like).

I'm not sure whether runner beans is the right english term for what I mean:

We'd call runner beans simply green beans, but would qualify it as fresh. You can get them at most grocery stores, sold by the lb. Interesting receipe.

I'd call them runner beans. Green beans are way smaller. Cool recipe, but before I try it, does it really need a whole jar of peanut butter?! That's a lot of peanutty goodness.

For a third opinion, they might be called "pole beans."

Depends on what you'd call a jar. I'd say 200 cl? But I always vary the amount. Make sure that it is high quality, that's the most important thing.

I'd put up a recipe but the hardest thing I can cook is rice-a-roni.

I think you are wrong. I do realize how confusing America can be. Your generalization speaks to that. "America" is made up of several states and each can often be considered different than the others much like each country in the European Union is different. It'd be like me saying all Europeans are lazy (which is probably true relative to what hours Americans typically work). Very Happy

A means of measuring liquids (or fluids, if you will). Confused Razz

Lol. Thanks for pointing out the obvious, Ipsa. Now let's see if he gets it this time.

Student 1: "Hey. Heard you have a test today. Yah study?"

Student 2: "Meh. Four fuckin' hours!"

Student 1: "Damn!"

Now, here's the thing: "Four hours" has qualitative value, not just quantitative value for students. Note, the following conversation:

Student 1: "So, how'd you'd do?"

Student 2: "Psh! Not good."

Student 1: "Musta been a hard test..."

Without knowing how a person studies, there is no conception of what "quality" means, yet there is an understanding of how the test must have been based upon hours spent studying. It is no wonder Phaedrus went mad over the issue of "quality".

Oooo, that recipe sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing, Munan.

Now if only I weren't so damn lazy... *goes to make toast instead*

Here's a weird recipe for 'John Bread' (called 'Roti John' locally) , something like a toast-omelet hybrid.


Bread
Onions
Mayonnaise
Salt
Pepper
Eggs
Sausages (franks)
Garlic
Cooking Oil

* No quantities are listed, as most Malaysian recipes are fully cooked 'to individual taste/appetite'. Different cooks cook the exact same recipe with varying quantities and/or flavor Laughing Some experimentation is important to successfully cook these to your personal taste.


1- Chop up some small onions and several cloves of garlic (Note: amount depending on how many you want to serve)
2- Dice the sausages into small pieces (see above note).
3- Break several eggs into a bowl, and beat them (see note above )
4- Throw in all the chopped ingredients into the beaten eggs, and stir.
5- Add in mayonnaise, salt and pepper (again, to taste)
6- Stir until well-mixed.
7- Heat up some cooking oil in a frying pan. Use just enough oil grease the pan evenly.
8- Take a slice of bread, and scoop some of the egg mixture onto it. Make sure not too much is put on the slice Razz
9- Quickly, place the slice into the pan, face-down on the side with the mixture. Leave to cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
10- Repeat steps 8 and 9 as necessary, until you have the amount you need. You might need to add some oil in again later.


Might be rather confusing, but it works Laughing

I'll put up some pictures soon, if anybody wants to see how it looks like.
