Prženi kupus , slaninica / Fried cabbage and crispy bacon



Scroll down for Recipe in English

Poznato je da sam ja veliki ljubitelj kupusa , kako god da je spremljen. Ovo sam skoro jela u jednom kineskom restoranu i naravno tako mi se dopalo da sam ga napravila i kd kuće. Pecivo sam kupila gotovo mada nameravam da se i na tome oprobam. Ono je vrlo meko i sasvim pogodno da se napuni nekim finim stvarima.


Sastojci

1/2 glavice većeg kupusa
4 komada nedimljene slanine
50  putera
1 Kašika suvog začina
2 Kašike maslinovog ulja
1 Kašika soja sosa
1/2 šolje vode


Priprema

Zagrejemo u tiganju puter i maslinovo ulje. Kupus isečemo na tanke režnjeve. Sipamo u tiganj,
prodinstamo nekoliko minuta. promešamo.

 Dodamo suvi začin, soja sos i vodu i dinstamo još desetak minuta na srednjoj temperaturi.



U medjuvremenu  slaninu poredjamo na pek papir i u rerni na 220 stepeni Celzija pečemo dok ne bude sasvim hrskava. ( oko 15 minuta)

Ja sam servirala uz kinesko pecivo i svinjske šnicle.

Scroll down for Recipe in English

Odavno se spremam , ne na daleke pute (mada i to nameravam uskoro), već da spremim ovu bosansku poslasticu. Kada sam videla ovaj recept kod  blogo koleginice Sabi, tj način spremanja  na češalj, odmah sam rešila da i ja tako napravim,  jer zaista prelepo izgleda. Ne brinite češalj sam kupila nov :)

  • 1 jaje
  • 1 prašak za pecivo
  • 1 čaša jogurta

Urmasice, oriental cookie

To be more precise this is for me memory of divine Bosnian cookie. I was planning to make it for a long time, but after I saw it on a blog of my friend Sabi I decided to give it a go. I particularly like the way those look after the dough is put on a comb ( dont worry, I bought a new comb for this purpose).
Do not know how to translate the name but you will see it is not difficult to make and sure worth trying.

Ingredients
250 g butter
450 g flour
1  egg
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup of unsweetend yoghurt
pinch of salt
100 g whole almonds
Sugar Syrup
500 ml water
600 g sugar
1 lemon

Create
To make sugar syrup, put sugar in water and add sliced lemon. Boil for 8 to 10 minutes than set aside to cool.
To make  the dough beat egg and butter till smooth. Than add flour with baking powder andpinch of salt and mix with cup of ypghurt to a soft dough.
Make balls of dough lightly bigger than a walnut. Press it against the comb* see pics, and make half moon. Put almond in the middle. Some people also make filling of walnuts, pistacio or similar.

Bake i preheated oven at 200 Degrees Celsius, till  those are golden brown. Pour on warm cookies cold sugar syrup.

Voćni Tiramisu- Fruit Tiramisu


Scrolll down for Recipe in English

Nadam se da se nik neće pobuniti što ovo nije klasičantiramisu. Svi sastojci su ustvari isti osim što nekoliko  nema, kao naprimer čokolada i  kakako. Umesto toga koristili smo mešavinu bobičastog voća. I ukus je bio fantastičan. Probajte!


Sastojci

3 paketa piškota
250 g mascarpone*
500 ml pavlake
300 g mešanog bobičastog voća
100 g muskavado šećera
1 kašičica vanile
300 ml kafe

Priprema

Skuvamo kafu. Ja sam koristila instant late sa  ukusom lešnika.

Umutimo pavlaku sa50 g muskavado šećera. Vi naravno možete koristiti i običan šećer. Muskavado šećer je nerafiniran šećer koji se dobija iz šećerne trske i ja ga rado koristim jer je mnogo zdraviji.

Umutimo maskarpone i dodamo 50 g šećera i kašičicu vanile

Svaku piškotu umačemo kratko u kafu pa redjamo u posudu koju smo izabrali za tiramisu. Na prvi sloj stavljamo maskarpone pa pospemo voćem. Zatim opet piškote pa umućenu pavlaku i tako redom dok ne stignemo do poslednjeg sloja koji treba da bud epavlak . Ukrasimo ostatkom voća


Ostavimo u frižider najmanje 3 sata ili još bolje preko noći.

Ja sam tiramisu pravila u dubokoj okrugloj posudi pa je blo teško iseči lep komad za slikanje.


*Maskarpone je ovde dosta skup , a vrlo je jednostavan da ga napravite sami što možete videti na mom blogu ovde : Mascarpone


**************************************************************************

Fruit   Tiramisu



Ok this is not a classic tiramisu although it has all the ingredients . We only substituted chocolate and cocoa with berry fruit. And it was very tasty!




Ingredients

3 packets of lady fingers
300 ml strong coffee
250 g of mascarpone*
500 ml of cream
100 g of muscavado sugar*
300 g of mixed berry fruits
1 tsp of vanilla essence

Create

First make strong coffee. I used instant Cafe latte with hazelnut flavor

Beat the cream and add 50 g of muscavado sugar. Your cream will be brown of colour because of muscavado sugar. You are welcome to use regular sugars. I love muscavado sugar because it is smoother , its made of sugar cane it's unrefined  and it is healthier.

Mix  Mascarpone  with rest of the sugar till smooth

Mascapone is expansive here but it is actually very simple to make at home. See my recipe :Mascarpone

Now start bydipping each lady finger in the coffee. Layer the bottom of the dish you have chosen for your tiramisu. I chose round high glass bowl, which made it difficult to cut nice piece for the picture.
Pit layer of mascarpone and sprinkle some berries on the top.

Now again lady fingers.Than whipped cfeam and fruit.

Repeat till you use all ingredients.

 Last layer  should be cream and decorate with the rest of the fruit. Leave in the fridge at least 3 hours or overnight.

Salmon with veges


Salmon has a taste of its own and does not need a lot of seasoning. I find it is the way with most fish. Salt and pepper and maybe couple of thyme sticks.With some nice side dishes and sauce to your liking , perfect. I used Sauce Holandaise.

400 g of salmon filleted
1 red pepper
1 carrot
1 lemon
150 g mushrooms
100 g of young potatoes ( I used Perla)
30 g of butter
few sprigs of thyme
salt and pepper
handful of fresh parsley



Create

Boil the potatoes in salty water on medium for about 20 minutes

In the meantime, slice pepper and carrot julienne and mushrooms in half. Melt the butter in the pa ad saute all the vegetables., for about 5 minutes.
Season salmon and add to the pan, Bake each side 3 minutes. Pour lemon juice over and add thyme sprigs
When serving add some fresh chopped parsley over the potatoes





Sauce Holandaise

Create

Vigorously whisk the egg yolks and lemon juice together in a stainless steel bowl and until the mixture is thickened and doubled in volume. Place the bowl over a saucepan containing barely simmering water (or use a double boiler,) the water should not touch the bottom of the bowl. Continue to whisk rapidly. Be careful not to let the eggs get too hot or they will scramble. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter and continue to whisk until the sauce is thickened and doubled in volume. Remove from heat, whisk in cayenne and salt.
