Bečka šnicla *Wiener Schitzel



Scroll down for Recipe in English

Jela sam bečku šniclu i u Austriji i u Nemačkoj i velika razlika je u pripremi. U nemačkoj se meso tanji, izlupa, u Austriji se koristi meso koje je već tanko isečeno. Lično mi se više dopada austrijski način. Bečku smo služili sa kriškom limuna, mešanom kupus salatom  i irskim krompir pireom sa povrćem, za koji recept možete videti  OVDE.

Sastojci

4 juneće šnicle
1 jaje
4 Kašike brašna
4 Kašike prezli
so i biber
Ulje za prženje


Priprema


Šnicle posolimo, provučemo kroz brašno, ulupano jaje i prezle.

 Dobro zagrejemo ulje i pečemo oko 3 minuta., pa okrenemo i pečemo još 3 minuta
Čitavo vreme , kašikom zalivamo šnicle

Wiener  Schnitzel




I ate Wiener schnitzel in Austria and Germany. The big difference is that German beat their meat to get it thin, Austrian just cut them thin enough.  I prefer Austrian way. We served this dish with  slaw and Irish mash with Kale for which you can see recipe HERE


Ingredients


Ingredients
4 veal cutlets
1 egg
4 Tablespoons flour
4 Tablespoons breadcrumbs
Salt
Oil for frying


Create

Salt them. Turn the slices in flour, then in beaten eggs and then in breadcrumbs. Don’t press the covering, it should be loose around the meat when cooked.


 Heat oil in a frying pan, enough oil to let the slices swim in hot oil. Fry 1 slice until it is golden brown on one side, then turn it. Fry 3-4 minutes more then remove from pan. Serve each slice with a large lemon slice to squeeze over the schnitzel.

    Thai Red curry with lychees


    I admit I was skeptical when came across this recipe. I have made Thai red curry many times but never with lychees. However pleasantly surprised at the end with the new level of taste this fruit added to the dish. I used bought red curry paste but am adding ingredients to make it at home.





    Ingredients


    • 1tbsp vegetable oil
    • 1 small brown onion, finely chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 1tsp grated fresh ginger

    • 1kg (1lb) chicken thigh fillets, cut into 3cm (1 1/4in) pieces
    • 300ml (9fl oz) coconut milk
    • 250g (8oz) green beans, chopped into 5cm (2in) lengths
    • 1-2tbsp fresh coriander leaves
    • 100 g fresh green beans
    • 1 can ( 370 g) can lychees)
    • 1 long egg plant

    4. 1/2 teaspoon salt.
    5. 10 (20g) large dried chilies, soaked in warm water for 25 minutes, then finely chopped.

    Curry paste

    Place cumin, coriander and peppercorns in a small frying pan and dry roast over medium heat for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.


    Using a pestle and mortar, grind roasted spices until fine powder forms. Add remaining ingredients and pound until a very smooth paste forms. (It is important that the paste is smooth.) Alternatively, add 1/4 cup water and, using a hand-held blender, blend until smooth. The paste will keep, covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or frozen for 1 month.

    Curry
    1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the onions, garlic, and ginger. Cook over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Add the curry paste and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally for 2 minutes.Add the sliced egg plant
    2. Add the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes. The sauce should have reduced and thickened by this stage.
    3. Add the beans, stir well, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until tender. There should be enough sauce to easily coat the meat. If the mixture is very liquid, increase the heat and simmer until reduced. Use a spoon to remove any oil that rises to the top.  in the last 5 minutes add lychees. Season to taste and serve in bowls topped with a handful of coriander leaves, accompanied with steamed rice.

    Mislim da je ovo jedno od najpopularnijih jela ne samo u Tajlandu odakle vodi poreklo, nego i širom sveta. Vrlo jednostavno se pravi ali izbalansirani začini i sosovi daju mu izvanredan ukus

    Sstojci


    400 g pilećeg mesa
    2 paprike babure isečene na tanke kriške
    1 čen belog luka
    sveže isečen djumbir ( veličine palca)
    2 crvena tanko isečena luka
    2 Kašike ribljeg ulja
    2 kašike belog vinskog sireta
    mali rukohvat korijandera
    malo mladog iseckanog luka
    100g izmrvljenog pečenog kikirikija

    Priprema

    Mariniramo piletinu u ribljem sosu i sirćetu oko15 minuta

    Zatim ispečemo u rerni oko15 minuta dok lepo porumeni. Piletina se takodje može seći na manje komade i dodati kroz pastu ali ja više volim ovako

    Izdinstamo  crveni i beli luk, dodamo papriku. Ispečemo u istom tiganju jaja .Uspemo kuvane rezance dodamo,, riblje ulje i malo sirćeta, kao i djumbir
    Sve promešamo

    Rezance smo pripremili tako što smo sipali na njih vruću vodu i ostavili ih da stoje oko10 minuta.

    Serviramo tako što pospemo sa korijanderom i mladim lukom. I nekoliko kriški limuna
