We're quite fond of Nando's here in Malaysia. The oddest thing is that our 2yo LOVES the Nando's rice, instead of the Nando's chicken. So I decided to look up a copycat and found what looks like a really easy way of cooking it using a rice cooker. Haven't tried it yet to see if it tastes exactly like Nando's.
I was assigned to cook a dish of vegetables for my family's reunion dinner this Chinese New Year, but due to a migraine, my plan to cook claypot tofu went down the drain. This recipe at http://www.ehow.com/how_4556015_chinese-stirfry-microwave.html came to my rescue, but with some changes! Well received and complimentary to my sister-in-law's chilli crab.
This is a copycat recipe of an outstanding coffee drink served in a famous bakery in Langkawi, Malaysia. Frozen coffee cubes melt in warm milk, chilling it up slowly, leaving you highly caffeinated and yet mellow. It's an excellent way to drink coffee in humid, tropical weather typical of South-East Asia. Preparation time is for freezing the coffee. I have found that coffee takes longer to freeze than water.
I got this sandwich filling recipe from my elder sister. I haven't cooked it myself, but when I ate it at her house, it was incredible! She's a slap-dash kinda cook, so I'm just guessing on the servings and cooking time. If I ever get around to cooking this, I'll correct it. Or you guys can cook it and correct the amount for me. I'll thank you!
This method is useful for cooking for a single serving or two of pasta. Ideally, use a 1 1/2-quart ceramic pot. According to "Microwave Cooking for One" by Marie T. Smith, the shape and arrangement of the food in the microwave makes a difference in its cooking. This recipe is from the previously mentioned book.
