Yesterday after days without any non-veg my body was screaming for nonveg. It does not mean I love the food I eat at home, the dishes are pure veg greens, daal and etc.
But, the non-veg is a must to have while being in India. So, I took a walk for 40 minutes to reach the restaurant for non-veg and ordered half tandoori chicken. During my last visit in India my friend took me to the same place therefore I knew it is a good place for chicken and crowd.
However, it was a bit wired to go out to a restaurant alone for dinner, but what to do when the whole family is veg. It is to accept it and never bring non-veg home.
For the first time in my life I made hummus at my friend’s place and help with other dishes. Everything was veg and tasted really nicely. We god salad, lasagna, hummus, quinoa salad and other dishes. We were maybe 8 people from school to university friends.
My friend god Organic green tea from India which I got from FebIndia. I really like the tea and gong to buy more during this trip.
The best thing I know is to find tasty food out which does not burn the wallet. For some days ago we went to Babel Deli, the place is perfect lunch or dinner. At lunch time there is major crowed and it is not a good idea go there at 12, either little earlier or later than normal lunch hour. A plate of Meze cost under 100 SEK, which means a student can eat there and feel good, without worries for the economy.
This is a meze plate with mutton, chicken, and much other tasty things. The food is really tasty and fast to get. However, the open hours are a bit limited, closing at 8 pm. They have to two places one on Kungstensgatan 33 (close on Sundays) and Långholmsgatan 27 (open on Sundays too). A place must to go for good food and price.
Last friday the whole family was together for a lovely dinner at my parents house. We had three courses with matching wine. In my case, got a drop of ice wine and I can say this, I do not miss wine that much to accapte the alcohol falvour .
The startes was toasted bread with rom on christmas plat.
The main dish was entrecote with salad, rosted vegetables.
So hard to get good photos in dark areas… But butter than no photos at all!
The desserts was cheese plate with coffee and chocoaltes!
Last night dinner with m friend.
We used a recipe from mittkök Moroccan chickpeas burger. We did a little bit of our own way. The foundation was the same, chickpeas, garlic and we the spices. Instead of one egg we used two and normal onoin instead of spring onion.
In the recipe it was written 2 hours in the refrigerator, but we put it in the freezer for 15 minutes.
What is needed:
400g chickpeas (1 tin)
60 g of bread crumbs
1 tbsp tahinipasta or smooth peanut butter
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
3 spring onions
2 tablespoons canola oil
150g natural yoghurt
1 tsp Garam Masala
sea salt and black pep
Mix the chickpeas well and add choped onion, garlic, spices and eggs and mix it with a mixer very well. When the mixture is smooth form the mixture too flat balls and pop it in the frezzer. After 15 minutes it is time to fry them in a normal pan.
To this we mixe the toghurt and garam masala to get less dry dish and yoghurt with garam tast not too bad. To de veg biffs any form of salad is good. However, I missed the heat in the dish. Therefore I would have added garam masala wih the chickpeas and some chilli.
Today lunch was with chicken breast and what ever I could find at home. The main spice was curry and not garam masala.
This dish is very simple to make and does not take too much time to cook.
2 onions, 3 garlics, 1 big carrot, 2 chicken breast, cabbage in small stripes and final spinach.
The spices were curry powder, tummeric, white salt and pepper.
While cooking I add some water.
Before I added the onions the curry powder went in to the pan, becasue in one tv-show the chef said the flavour also the powder would not get stucky. But, I do not know if I tasted or saw any differences.
Best part is, I got a lunch box for tomorrow or a dinner box for tonights work shift.
I have to eat more fish, but I do not.
During the week the three meals should contain fish. But, man, why is it hard to eat fish? I do not know, but in my case it is so hard. At least, I eat more beans and lentils which are more environment and healthier than meat. I must say, it feels good to eat more veg, but at the same time it is harder to get all the vitamins and protiens
Anyways, the today dinner is with salmon with black pepper, lemon juice and on top of that thyme. The fish tasted really good and crispy.
