I made some really delicious meals during the last couple of weeks using my new cookbook Die persische Küche. I started with Abdugh Xiar, a dessert with yoghurt, cucumber, raisins and walnuts and for the main meal I made Adas Polou, which consists of Basmati rice with dates and black lentils.
Last friday I made Kabab Tabei, which basically is minced meat made in a pan. Also very delicious.
But the highlight was clearly my cooking session on saturday, which resulted in Borani Badenjan, eggplant yoghurt (with a bit too much garlic), Shirin Polou, a feastful meal with stewed chicken and sweet orange rice and for dessert Sholeh Zard, golden rice pudding.
How stupid can you be! Buying a pizza and then noticing that you don't have an oven to bake it. Stupid! I am! But not stupid enough, because I found a way to prepare the pizza. Uhm, the pizza now looks very ugly, but tastes quite well. I cut it in pieces, then put those pieces into a pan and put as well some water into it. Cook it on the boilerplate until it's ready. Cleaning up the pan of course is not so nice, but next time I won't buy a pizza again ;-)
Two days ago, I unintentionally constructed a bomb which detonated last night in our basement. Brewing is dangerous! Especially when brewing russian beer, or so called “Kwass” (bread bear). Damn! Why exactly the big bottle? To make sure that the other bottle, which is only 1/10 filled with Kwass, will not detonate next night, I opened it. It stood under extreme pressure. Well, next time better read the cooking instructions carefully!
Hab heut mittag Kaiserschmarren gemacht. Mein Leibgericht. Mir ist allerdings ein fataler Fehler unterlaufen, da ich Eidotter mit Eiweiß verwechselt hab. Und Kaiserschmarren lebt nun mal vom luftigen Eischaum. Nya, hab dann halt noch ein Ei reingetan, so dass es letztendlich doch noch ein wenig luftig geworden ist. Ach ja, Ziegenmilch und Dinkelmehr war auch drin :)
Trotz diesem Missgeschick hats immer noch sehr lecker geschmeckt! Besonders zusammen mit dem Pflaumenmuß.
