Arroz con leche or Rice Pudding or Riz au Lait, is a dessert that actually exists in a lot of countries. One of my Colombian friend gave me her recipe. The way you decide to use condensed milk and all the ingredients de pends of your taste, it you like sweeter, more liquid rice…

Ingredients:
– round rice
– 1 tablespoon of sugar

Put the rice into water anfter washing it and add the sugar, stir a bit and wait for the night for it to rise.

THE Mango Sticky rice…

26 Feb

Mango Sticky rice. I think i could die because my stomac would explose after eating too much of it. In the end, i nearly had one everyday, and i had to buy one in the Airport just before leaving Thaïland because i would miss it too much otherwise.

It’s one of the simpliest receipe ever: mango, sticky rice and coconut milk. Sometimes the most basics things are the better.In  Thaïland, you find it in plastic bags most of the time, on the markets. In Laos, it was in restaurants. But my favorite were the one from Laos, while it’s supposed to be from Thaïland…

But not all Mango Sticky rice are good. Some don’t have enough coconut milk or aren’t sweet enough, so it ends up being not really not. I think i’ll try it with vanilla sugar back home to give even more flavor.

The receipe? Here it is, but if i were you, i would add more coconut milk. I also add here vanilla sugar but i haven’t tried the receipe so far. I think this one needs some improvements, but i’ll try to modify it when i will have a proper kitchen.

Ingredients:
– 1 ripe mango
– 2 cups of sticky rice soaked overnight
– half a cup of coconut milk
– 4 table spoons of sugar
(- 1 table spoon of vanilla sugar)
– half a tea spoon of salt
– 1 tea spoon of rice flour
– 1 table spoon of fried mung bean

Steam the sticky rice around 10mn and remove it to the mixing bowl. Heat up the coconut milk and then add sugar and salt. Still until it dissolves.
Add 3/4 of the coconut milk in the mixing bowl with the sticky rice land stir well with a lid, then cover with a lid. Let the rice absorb the coconut milk for 15 mn.

Cook the remaining milk with rice flour and stir again until it dissolves.
Tranfer your rice in the plates, cut your peeled mango and top the whole with the coconut milk that you previously cooked. You can use the fried mung beans to give a little crispy.

I prefer to eat it when it’s still warm, but you can also wait if you prefer.

Brown Sugar Cake

16 Dec

A Taiwanese dessert recipe

Ingredients for 4:
– 60g of cake flower (flour if you don’t have)
– 12g of Potato starch
– 60g of molasses
– sugar
– 30g of oil
– 2 eggs
– 3g of soda powder
– sesame

Put soda powder in 10g of water. Mix the cake flower and the potato starch, add molasses, sugar (as you want but we put around 2 spoons and i think it was enough as there’re the molasses), oil and the 2 eggs while mixing.  Pull the soda powder, mix again, and put everything into your mold. Put two glass of water into your cooker pan and your mold. I guess bain marie is ok if you cover both ustensils, because it’s supposed to cook with the steam water. It takes around 30mn. Use the knife to see if it’s cooked. Add sesame.

Dessert Taiwanais: Gâteau au sucre roux

Ingrédients pour 4 personnes:
– 60 g de farine
– 12g de Maïzena
– 60g de mélasses (ou sirop d’érable si vous ne trouvez pas, mais le résultat sera nettement moins bon)
– 30g d’huile
– 2 oeufs
– sucre (selon ses désirs, mais 2 cuillères à soupe sont suffisantes pour moi, vu qu’il y a déjà la mélasse)
– 10g d’eau
– 3g de poudre de bicarbonate
– sésame

Verser la poudre de bicarbonate dans 10g d’eau. Mélanger la farine et la maïzena, rajouter la mélasse, le sucre, l’huile et les œufs tout en mélangeant, rajouter la poudre e bicarbonate. Verser dans votre moule, et mettre le moule dans le cooker avec 2 verres d’eau. Peut-être que la technique du bain-marie pourrait marcher si on couvre aussi le récipient contenant l’eau bouillante (à tester). Laisser couvert environ 30mn. On peut utiliser le couteau pour vérifier la cuisson. Sortir du cooker, rajouter des graines de sésame.

Microwaves: Apple-Banana Compote

1 Nov

When you don’t have an oven, that you only have a knife and a micro-wave as tools to cook, you start to think really simply. I can’t even up the egg whites, so what dessert can i possibly do?

And then you start to think. And then, what kind of easy desserts does my family do? Answer: Compote!

No sugar, only fruits to change from here, and can’t be more simple. So i here is the easy recipe:

Ingredients:
– 4 bananas
– 6 apples (small ones or 4 normal ones)
– spices (i found something with called Imperial spices with cinnamon, anise, cumin, clove, spicy seasoning) i think you can use if for gingerbread too, maybe i’ll try during winter.

Pealed and cut your apples in small pieces, do the same with your bananas, add the spicies as you like and put 10 minutes in the micro-waves. Then mix a little, and put around 8 minutes again in the micro waves. Ready to eat!

You can have it hot or cold, as you prefer.

Flan Parisien sans pâte

27 Aug

Michalak again, and what to do with your eggyolks. Notice that the size of the mold is quite important, otherwise it will be too thin.

Ingredients for 4 people:
– 500g of milk
– 120g of sugar
– 50g of cornflour
– 12,5 cl of fat whipping cream

Boil the cream and the milk. Aside, mixe the sugar, the egg yolks and the cornflour. Add the boiled milk and put on the fire again for 30s while whipping. Poor in a big plate and cover the cream to the contact with plasic wrap (it has to touch the cream). Wait until it totally cools down. Then whip again and put in your 18cmx4cm mold. Prehead to 180°C and cook for about 35mn until you see dark marks on it.

Encore et toujours Michalak et que faire avec ses restes de jaune d’oeuf. A noter que la taille du moule est importante, sinon il est trop fin (comme dans mon cas).

Ingrédients pour 4 personnes:
– 500g de lait
– 120g de sucre semoule
– 5 jaunes d’oeufs
– 50g de Maizena
– 12,5 cl de crème liquide (entière dans mon cas)

Bouillir le lait et la crème. A côté, mélanger les oeufs, le sucre et la maïzena. Verser le lait bouillant dessus en remuant et remettre sur le feu 30 secondes, toujours en remuant. Verser dans un grand plat et couvrir au contact avec film film plastique jusqu’au refroidissement complet. Fouetter à nouveau la crème et verser dans un moule beurré et fariné de 18cm de diamètre et 4 cm de haut. Préchauffer le four à 180°C et cuire 35/40mn le temps de voir des taches noires sur le dessus. Refroidir sur une grille (attention le flan tombe très facilement du moule ^^”).
