    I've made & enjoyed Ummi's Emirati Style Yellow Chicken Stock. I used the broth, cut up & returned the chicken meat, added some rice & had soup for supper. Absolutely delicious! Beautiful color & a very nice flavor. The loomi gives it such an exotic edge. icon_smile.gif

    EVERY recipe in the UAE cb has been reviewed!

    Happy cooking! Tomorrow I will post Yemen. I'm home sick so I have the time, lol.

    Hi Bethie!

    It's what we call "griessklösschen", basically you boil milk or broth, sift wheat semolina into it like for pudding, and cook until you get a tough batter. Then whisk in an egg, salt, pepper, fresh parsley if you wish, and with a soup spoon make little dumplings which you throw into the soup you want to eat them with, boil until they float on top - ready.
    I make it with millet and rice semolina or corn polenta.

    You can make those dumpliings sweet, too, for dessert, and serve with fruit or vanilla sauce.
    Hm, that's not middle-eastern icon_rolleyes.gif
    But my dad, who was Romanian, made them a lot (Austrian influence LOL).

    yum. how do you do it with millet? i love this stuff, and dessert...vanilla sauce...ohhh drooool! 'not middle eastern' lol.

    i'm drinking Feel Better Ginger & Lemon Tea now with Karkanji-Hibiscus Tea - Africa is brewing. Hooray for my thyme plant which stays usable in the winter!!

    I'm so pissed....this poor child sent to school sick. blowing & wiping boogers all over everything (especially me) all day for 2 days. 3rd day I requested a different child (mine was absent the whole time) which worked out - his cold wasn't as bad. Swimming in boogers & hand sanitizer the whole time but i still got sick. the parents were called to pick up their kids (twins - i switched to the other on weds) they showed up at dismissal! so now I am sick & missing work. can i swear here? inconsiderate twits. these poor children! and yeah, poor me. i don't work for the fun of it. grrr...

    anyway, thanks for the lead on a good anti cold bevvy!

    Happy cooking! Ummi said Yemen is spicy which will help clear out the sinuses. icon_wink.gif

    No, spaetzle are more pasta, noodles. These little dumplings really are dumplings. Imagine stiff polenta shaped into tablespoon sized dumplings.

    We can get gluten free millet semolina here, which can be used like wheat semolina. Yeah, the dumplings with vanilla sauce are great. And some hot cherries, maybe icon_cool.gif

    That African tea sounds great!

    Poor you, that really was inconsiderate! icon_eek.gif Hope you'll get better soon.
    Maybe another idea for sore throat: I got Manuka honey throat spray which worked like a spell for my laryngitis. Hopefully this is not considered spam or advertising, but this one really is great (I don't sell it LOL):

    you're not a stranger or brand new member posting irrelevant nonsense. I'll not call it spam! thank you!

    so, the millet is ground, not whole? ok. i'll probably use polenta because i'm always out of wheat semolina. icon_rolleyes.gif (every time i buy some i use it up)

    i'm going to post Yemen now... icon_biggrin.gif

    Yes, for Manuka honey it's cheap, and - speaking for myself - I can say it's worth it. I didn't get rid of this nasty laryngitis no matter what I tried, but with this it got better within one day and away in two days.

    There are two things in this spray, first the Manuka honey which is special because it contains an antibacterial substance called methylglyoxal, and second, propolis, which also has strong antibacterial properties.

    I have used propolis before, but it didn't help as much as this combination with the Manuka honey. Actually I wouldn't buy a jar of Manuka honey for a fortune, but well, I'm glad I tried this spray!
