Chocolate Mousse Recipe: By Badhige

Preparation time: 20 minutes, plus 2 hours’ chilling

165 g (51/2 oz) dark chocolate finely chopped
25g (1 oz) unsweetened cocoa powder
10 organic or free range egg whites
25 g (1 oz) caster sugar

With an electric beater, whisk the egg whites and sugar for 2–3 minutes, until they form soft peaks.

Adding the eggs to the chocolate.
Stir the egg yolk into the chocolate and cocoa mixture and immediately whisk in a quarter of the egg whites to lighten the mixture.

Melting the chocolate.
Place the chocolate and cocoa powder in a large bowl set over a pan of hot water and leave to melt over a low heat; do not boil the water or the chocolate will become grainy. Stir until smooth, then remove from the heat. Keep warm over the pan of water while you whisk the egg whites.
Fold in the remaining egg whites with a large spatula, ensuring that you do not over mix or the mousse will be heavy. Pour into a glass bowl or individual glasses and leave to set in the fridge for 2 hours or until required.

Prep Time: 8 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 18 minutes

6 cups good-quality chicken stock (Serves 2 as the main entree, or 4-6 as an appetizer)
1-2 chicken breasts, sliced, OR 1-2 cups roasted chicken or turkey
1 lemongrass stalk, OR 3 Tbsp. frozen prepared lemongrass
4 kaffir limes leaves (fresh or frozen)
1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 thumb-size piece galangal or ginger, grated
1-3 fresh red chilies, minced (to taste), OR substitute 1/2 to 3/4 tsp. dried crushed chili
1/2 to 1 can good-quality coconut milk
2 Tbsp. lime juice
2+ Tbsp. fish sauce
1 tsp. brown sugar (optional, according to taste)
handful fresh coriander leaves
handful fresh basil leaves
3 spring (green) onions, sliced
optional: other vegetables, like sliced bell pepper or cherry tomatoes
optional: *wheat or rice noodles, if serving as the main course (see tip below)


1. Slice and mince the lower portion of the lemongrass stalk. Retain the upper stalk for the soup pot.
2. Place chicken broth in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. If you have leftover chicken or turkey bones, add those too. Bring to a boil.
3. Add fresh chicken (or leftover chicken or turkey) and mushrooms. Also add the prepared lemongrass (including upper stalk pieces), plus kaffir lime leaves and fresh chili. Boil 5-8 minutes, or until chicken is cooked.

5. Turn heat down to minimum. Add lime juice and stir.
6. Do a taste test. Look for a balance between spicy, sour, salty, and sweet flavors. Start with salty, adding more fish sauce if not salty or flavorful enough (1 Tbsp. at a time). If too sour, add the sugar plus a little more if you need it. If too spicy, or if you'd like it creamier, add more coconut milk. If not spicy enough, add more chili.
7. Ladle soup into serving bowls. Sprinkle a little fresh coriander, basil, and spring onion over each bowl. For an extra kick of flavor, add a dollop of either store-bought or own homemade Nam Prik Pao Chili Sauce.

McDonald’s® Famous French Fries

Special Tools
Deep fryer
French Fry Cutter
(or patience for cutting potatoes)
2 large Idaho russett potatoes
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons corn syrup
1½-2 cups hot water
6 cups Crisco® shortening
1/4 cup beef lard (or save the fat from previously cooked burgers)
Preparing your french fries
Peel the potatoes. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, corn syrup, and hot water. Make sure the sugar is dissolved. Using a french fry slicer, cut the peeled
potatoes into shoestrings. The potatoes should be 1/4″ x 1/4″ in thickness, and about 4″ to 6″ long. (You can do this with a knife, but it is alot of work)
Place the shoestringed potatoes into the bowl of sugar-water, and refrigerate. Let them soak about 30 minutes.
While they’re soaking, pack the shortening into the deep fryer. Crank up the temperature to “full”. The shortening has to pre-heat for a very long time. It will
eventually liquify. After it has liquified and is at least 375°, drain the potatoes and dump them into the fryer. (be careful, it will be ferocious)
After 1 to 1½ minutes, remove the potatoes and place them on a paper towel lined plate. Let them cool 8 to 10 minutes in the refrigerator.
While they’re cooling, add the lard or beef drippings to the hot Crisco®. Again, crank the temperature to full. Stir in the lard as it melts into the oil. It will blend in.
After the deep fryer is reheated to 375°-400°, add the potatoes and deep fry again. This time for 5-7 minutes until golden brown. Remove and place in a large bowl.
Sprinkle generously with salt, then “toss” the fries to mix the salt evenly. ( I suggest about 1 teaspoon of salt, maybe slightly more)
Serve hot, serve immediately, and enjoy! Depending upon the size of the potatoes, this recipe make about 2 medium sized fries.
Special Notes
Note¹***** If you want more fries, double the recipe—but DON’T double the cooking oil. Just cook them in shifts, adding about 1/4 cup more Crisco® and 1
tablespoon lard for the second batch.
Note²***** If cooking for a minute or so, removing, and returning the fries to the oil seems like a pain in the ass, that’s because it is. But it is an important
“blanching” step required for that great taste.
Note³***** For an easier clone of McDonald’s french fries, you can use the frozen, pre-cut Ore-Ida® shoestring potatoes. Just cook them in the same combo of
Crisco® and lard, skipping the “blanching” process. Cook them while still frozen for 6-10 minutes (depending upon the amount) until golden brown. They’re good,
but not nearly as accurate in taste and texture as the fresh recipe.

Marble Cheese Cake Recipe: By Badhige


For the crust:

  • 4 ounces chocolate cookie crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • 2 1/2 pounds cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Spiced Prawn Pilaf : BY BADHIGE


9 oz (250g) rice - dry weight - cooked
Boiling water
1 tablespoon curry paste
2 tablespoons oil
2 tomatoes - skinned, cored and cut into 8s
1 onion - peeled and finely sliced
8 oz (225g) frozen peas
8 oz (225g) cooked peeled prawns (shrimp0
Chopped coriander or parsley to serve


Cook the rice according to the instructions on the packet - rinse and drain.

Heat the oil in a large pan.

Add the onion and fry for around 3 minutes until soft and golden.

Add the tomatoes and cook a further 5 minutes - the tomatoes need to break down into the onion.

At this point, you may need to add a few tablespoons of boiling water - just tip a bit in out of your kettle and stir round - if the mixture looks like it's drying out, add some more - if it looks OK, then keep going to the next stage.

Add the curry paste and cook for 5 minutes.

Once again, add boiling water from your kettle if you think you need to.

Add the rice and peas, stir thoroughly until they are heated through - at this point, you may need to add some more water if the mixture looks dry.

Add the prawns (shrimp) and stir again - keep stirring for 2 or 3 minutes - the water by now should have been absorbed into the sauce.

It should all be very hot prior to serving.

Tip out onto plates and scatter chopped coriander or parsley over.

It's a very simple meal to cook and very tasty.

Add some poppadoms, mango chutney, yoghurt sauce and some naan bread.

Butter Chicken Recipe: By Badhige


  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 onion
  • ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of crushed garlic
  • 2 teaspoons of crushed ginger
  • ½ teaspoon of ground turmeric
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons of chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon of coriander
  • 400 grams / 14 oz of skinless, boneless chicken thighs or breasts
  • ¼ to ½ cup ground almonds
  • 225 gram / 8 oz can of whole peeled tomatoes with juice
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
  • ½ cup of unsweetened yoghurt

With chicken there is always a risk of food poisoning, so it is important to clean your hands, board and knives before and after working with the raw meat. Trim and cut the chicken into small cubes, cover and put aside. With a clean knife and board slice the onions into thin wedges (lyonnaise). Heat a large saucepan or frying pan and melt 2 to 3 tablespoons of butter until it is frothy. Add the onions and the cinnamon to the pan and fry lightly. When the onions are soft stir in the crushed garlic and ginger. Then add the turmeric, chilli and coriander, and sauté over a medium heat. The spices are fried first to release their maximum flavour and this really enhances the dish. Add the cubed chicken and sauté stirring constantly until the chicken has turned white. Pour in the ground almonds, tomatoes and tomato paste. Mix thoroughly. Cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Add the yoghurt and heat through. Serve on rice with a salad and Indian bread if desired.
