ZUCCHINI CUTLETS

Photobucket

Zucchini is a healthy vegetable which is low in calorie but contains useful amount of folate, potassium, vitamin A and manganese. It is quite bland to consume on its own so you need to turn them into  snack or dessert to enjoy them. In this case I have prepared zucchini cutlets, one of  popular Indian fried snacks. These are great as an appetizer, afternoon snack with tea or a side dish with dinner.

ZUCCHINI  CUTLETS

250g  shredded zucchini squeeze the juice out
1/2 C rice flour
4 green chili chopped
1 onion  chopped
1 tsp cumin seed
1 tsp ginger minced
1/4 C  chopped coriander leaves
salt to taste
plain flour for coating
zucchini juice/water
oil for frying

METHOD

Squeeze out the water from the shredded zucchini, keep aside.

In a mixing bowl. combine zucchini, rice flour, green chili, cumin seed, ginger, coriander leaves and salt.

Sprinkle with zucchini juice if it is too dry. Shape into patties then coat with flour.

Heat a small amount of oil in a pan using medium heat,  slide in the cutlets and fry until golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper.

Serve with tomato/chili sauce.

FRUITY BREAD TRIFLE



Trifle is a cold dessert made of  thick custard, fruit, sponge cake, fruit juice or gelatin and whipped cream. They are usually arranged in layer with fruit and sponge cake on the bottom, custard and cream on top.  Now they have used  brownies, muffin, crushed cookies, chocolate chip, toasted nut chocolate shaving and many more for layering this stunning desert..

I  had used bread slices, banana, peaches and  yogurt for this dessert. Use your imagination to create this yummy dessert. You can add more layer if using a taller glass.




FRUITY BREAD TRIFLE
Serves  :    2

4 slices bread white/wholemeal spread with  butter and jam, cubed
2 medium banana mashed
1/2 - 3/4 C  canned peaches chopped
150 ml yogurt
fruit syrup from the canned fruit

METHOD

Line bottom of a tall clear glass with bread cubes,  drizzle with fruit syrup  then layer with banana and peaches.

Top with yogurt, decorate with sliced peaches.

Chill in a refrigerator at least an hour before serving.

CHAR KWAY TEOW

Noodle Recipe  @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com

This is a famous hawker food found in Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia and Singapore. It is made from flat rice noodle, stir fried with light and dark soy sauce.

During olden days, char kway teow is labelled as "unhealthy" due to its high saturated fat content mainly to serve the labourer as their cheap source of energy and nutrients. As this dish has become increasingly popular, the latest version of this noodle is much healthier, free from lard but using cooking oil and more vegetables. You can add almost anything from seafood, meat or chicken to them.

SELKIRK BANNOCK

Selkirk Bannoch Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

There are many versions of bannock but this  selkirk bannock was first introduced in Selkirk market place on 1859. It is a famous Scottish fruit loaf loaded with sultana and mixed peel.

The dough is heavy and won't rise much. The baked texture is more like a yeast cake than a bread and it is best served with your coffee/tea. Since it is easily browned, do watch out after 20 minutes of baking .
