Luto-Lutuan

Dahil sa isa akong yummy na Tangeng Ina (chos!), nitong mga nakaraang araw, pinagsilbihan at ipinagluto ko ang dalawang amo ko ng mga sumusunod…

1. TILAPIA CURRY WITH STRING BEANS

  • 1/2 kilo Tilapia, sliced
  • 1 small bundle string beans, cut into 2” length
  • 1/2 head garlic chopped
  • 1 thumb size ginger, cut into thin strips
  • 1 small size onion, chopped
  • 1 pieces red/green chili pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp. curry powder

Using the same pan add more oil and stir cook the remaining ginger, garlic and onion until fragrant. Add in half quantity of the coconut milk, fish sauce and curry powder bring to a boil and simmer. Add in the remaining coconut milk, string beans and chili pepper. Add in the fish, season with salt and pepper to taste.

2. PORK GINATAAN

Ano ini? Ginataan tapos orangey ang kulay? Hehe! Sorry naman, dahil po yan sa bagoong alamang gisado na ginamit ko na medyo mapula ang pagka-gisa. Tsaka powdered coconut kasi ang ginamit ko. Siguro kung fresh coconut cream ang ginamit ko eh mas magata o creamy white ang kulay.

In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons oil then saute 3 cloves crushed garlic and 1 chopped onion. Add 1/2 kilo diced pork. Cook until browned. Add 1/4 cup bagoong alamang gisado . Pour 1 cup coconut cream. Simmer until pork is tender. Add 1/2 cup sliced siling pansigang. Cook until the sauce has thickened. Adjust seasoning, if needed.

3. HONEY ROLLS

honey rolls

  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup barely warm water
  • 1/4 cup honey + 1 tablespoon
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra if necessary
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water and let sit for 5 minutes.

Add the honey, salt and egg. Stir until blended. Add 3 cups of flour and mix until the dough comes together. It will be sticky! On a lightly floured surface knead the dough until soft and elastic (about 8 minutes), adding more flour to keep the dough from sticking if necessary. Do not add too much flour! The dough will become more workable the longer you knead. Or, if you have a standing mixer, knead the dough with the dough attachment for 5-7 minutes, or until elastic.

Transfer the kneaded dough to a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and a clean kitchen towel. Let the dough rise in a warm area until it doubles in size, about 2 hours.

Punch dough down, divide into 12 equal portions, and shape each portion into a round ball. Place in a pan (or on baking sheets) coated lightly with cooking spray. Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rise for another 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and 1 tablespoon honey. Brush over the rolls. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
