Cauliflower Rice Recipe February 6, 2019 No Comments

- grate the cauliflower using the largest holes of a grater - place in a container along with the oil and water and seal - cook in a microwave for 1 min 30 secs, stir, cook for a further minute. - at this point it's done for me as I like my rice with bite to it to add more texture but cook longer if you'd like it softer - add the juice of 1/2 a lime or more adjusting to your taste - add coriander - I omit the salt as i find the juice is more than enough especially if eating alongside fish or chicken but again, that's up to you - ENJOY!

Crescent Rolls

Pusi Munthali January 11, 2019 No Comments

Combine the warm milk and the yeast and let it sit for 5 minutes. Take a large bowl and add all the ingredients (one egg only), mix with a wooden spoon till it comes together as a dough. Split the dough into 8 equal balls. On a floured surface roll out the first ball into 24” circle, apply butter all over, keep on the side, do the same with the rest of the balls and stack them on top of the other, the last ball should not be buttered. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Flour the surface again, roll out the stacked layers on a kitchen counter to about 5 mm thick, they will all blend together into a big circle. Cut into 16 triangles. Start from the to all the way down into 2 halves, then 4 quarters, then into 1/8th Starting from the end roll into the centre, the tip of the angle should be at the bottom of the roll. Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper, space them out. Cover with a kitchen towel and leave in a warm place for 30 minutes. Beat the remaining egg and brush each roll. I also tried with softened butter, for me the egg wash was better! Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Depending on the size of the oven, otherwise you will have to bake them in two batches. Once you get the hand of it, it is very easy and fun to make, feel free to experiment with different fillings!

Depending on your cooker you may have to reduce to low sooner. Once the water is no longer visible above the rice you can turn the rice and reduce to a low heat. If you have an oven at this stage you can place the rice at 180 Degrees Celsius, for 15 minutes. 9. Turn the rice to check if it evenly cooked, if not you can add a little more water and continue to cook . If the rice is done, serve with a kachumbari or fruit (I used mangoes)
