Easter Pasha

Post by caysa on Sun Apr 12, 2009 6:46 am

255 gr quark (rahka)
200 gr butter
2 dl sugar
2 egg yolks
2 dl whipping cream
1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
grated peel from ½ lemon
3 tablespoons of ground almonds
3 tablespoons of sultana raisins ( or normal raisins)


Beat together the sugar and soft butter until light. Whip the cream until it stiffens. Add the quark, egg yolks, vanilla sugar, lemon peel, almonds, raisins and whipped cream to the sugar-butter mixture.

Pour the mixture into a strainer, which is lined with damp gauze. Allow it to strain for an hour or two. Press the mass (still inside the gauze!) tightly into a pasha mould. If you don't have one (pasha mould), you can use a sieve or a coffee filter. Let the pasha set in the fridge overnight. Cover it with a plate and use something as a wheight on top. Place a plate under too, liquid will drip out when it sets.

Before serving, turn out the pasha, and decorate it with almonds, raisins or fruits.

This an old recipe, and it did not change.
I recommend it to starting cooks. I learned this from my father.
He learned it from his daddy. He learned it from a man in Africa, who saw the tooth of a hippopotamus.
They eat it on all of the world's landscapes.

Ingredients:
8/4 chicken thigh/breast, salt, pepper,
2 onion
80 dkg tomato
tinned sardine in veg oil
2 clove garlic.
3-4 Slice bread/French roll.
2 bay leaf, cooking oil
tinopener
2 dl white wine
4 slice skinned bacon
25 dkg Butter
50 g tomato puree
5 cl cognac/vodka
parsley

Switch on the oven onto a medium temperature. Drink the cognac/vodka. Open the sardine tinned with the tin opener. Eat the sardine with the bread.
Put the rest of the ingredient into the fridge, you may use it
yet another time.
(OOOoops! Switch the oven off, because you will receive a long bill.)

Basque chicken

Post by Ophiophagus on Fri Apr 17, 2009 8:42 pm

Leanne mentioned Basque Country. Let my 2. recipe be a Basque food then. I do not recommend it to beginners!

Basque chicken
Ingredients:
8/4 chicken thigh/breast, salt, pepper,
2 onion
80 dkg tomato
10 dkg Sliced bacon.
2 clove garlic.
2 bay leaf, cooking oil
2 dl white wine
4 slice skinned bacon
50 g tomato puree
5 cl cognac/vodka
parsley

The chicken thighs salt it.
Cut the onion and the tomato onto a circle. Switch the oven
on (180°C). Place it on the bottom of a dish the sliced bacon,
the half of the onion, chicken thigh, the other half of the onion,
and the tomato.Place pepper upon him, garlic and bay leaf.
Pour the oil on him, and the white wine. Place the cover upon
him, and steam it in the oven onto soft one (min one hour).
The skinned bacon roast in a pan. Take out the dish
from the oven. Withdraw it from the juice the chicken thighs,
the bacon, the bay leaf. Break it mash with a stick mixer..Put tomato puree.
Boil this sauce, pour it afterwards onto the meat. (Danger!) Pour the
cognac into a ladle, boil it, ignite it, pour it on top of the sauce.
If the firemen went away Razz , mix it up. Put the parsley
and the skinned bacon slices on top.

If you did it well, will be like this. The trimming may be a roast potato, or rice.
Good appetite!

filled aubergine and zucchini

Post by naamah on Fri May 01, 2009 4:09 pm

this one is not slovakian, just my own. I invented it in summer, this one is my favourite summer food Smile

so we need:
aubergine and zucchini,
spice: salt, black, oregano and spice "Provance" mix (dried basil, garden thyme, tarragon, rosmarinus, etc)
chilli (dried is best), sometimes i used to do it without black spice, just with chilli

tomatos
onion
garlic
chees
an apple


we have to slice tomatos, and zucchini and aubergine, put some salt on it. then we have to slice garlic and onion and mix it together.



and finally, chees and apple (apple makes a good taste, it´s some kind of lightness afterall)


you have to mix it together, better with hands, it´s better for taste. then you have to put some spice
(written before and as i said, i like chilli to put down, but just i bit) i like to use tomato paste also or basil paste.


then you have to fill vegetable with this mass, put it on metal plate, put some chees
on it. i use parmesan chees, but also edam cheese. don´t forget to put olive oil and water into the metal plate, but not too much.
vegetable will produce it´s own sause, too. we have to bake it, not boil it Smile


Then you have to bake it a while. you ´ll see when it´s done i think.
It´ s easy, you don´t need too much time to prepare it and you can eat it even if it´s cold Smile
bon apetit!

Kőrözött (CAYSA'S SOFT CHEESE SPREAD on a Hungarian manner)

- curd cheese
- sour cream
- salt
- grind red pepper
- crushed cumin seed
- garlic

You mix so much sour cream into the curd cheese, that let there be a cream-filled pastry, greasy one. From grind red pepper you put so much into it, that let it be a little bit red (pink). Salt, garlic (2-3 cloves), crushed cumin seed according to a taste. Store it in a refrigerator a little bit. Spread on bread, toast excellent. You may sprinkle a chive, green paprika, a tomato on him,.....
You will be a little bit lonely because of the garlic! clown
