Apple Bread Pudding

When you first hear the name, Bread Pudding, may not sound too interesting. However, its a really tasty, rich dessert that's hard to turn down once you’ve tried it. Traditional bread puddings contain egg yolks and so a lot of fat; but this recipe relies on the whites and adds apple for extra flavor.

MOJITO CUBANO

This is one of the most consumed drinks by tourism in Cuba, and obvious by the Cubans, a rich cocktail prepared with rum, and a lot of Cuban flavor I hope you enjoy it

Home-Style Chicken Biryani

Ingredients

The first thing we are going to do is look for a good good Ron, strong if it is the Habana Club brand, much better, preferably a 3 year old. But it can also be worth another white rum of good quality.
It is necessary to look for mint leaves luckily now we find them in any supermarket in the refrigerated section. There is no mojito without mint. The lime is also very important, and can not be substituted for lemon since it would completely change the flavor. Water with gas or soda and sugar are the last ingredients that we will need.
And here with the recipe
Ingredients for the Cuban mojito: After looking for the good Ron, then we are looking for the mint twigs, luckily in Cuba they are in the portals, either in avandonados places, because it is a wild plant, but I think that in your country you can find it in any market. Are needed
1. 2 sprigs of mint or peppermint,
the second is the zucar, in Cuba the brown sugar is used a lot, really, it is advisable to do this with white sugar, it is softer
2. teaspoons of sugar (to consumer taste, but only two are recommended)
3. The juice of 1 lime
4. 45 ml (more or less) of white Ron
5. A bit of crushed or crushed ice
6. Soda or sparkling water to fill 2/3 of the glass

Directions

Preparation of this classic cocktail.
Cut the limes in half. We are going to use the juice of one lime per drink. We squeeze the limes in a glass.
We add 2 teaspoons of sugar and mix well.
Add the 2 sprigs of mint in the glass, whole, it has to be with stem and everything and gently squeeze the branches with a spoon, enough to release the essential oils of the mint. Be careful not to break the leaves.
insert the crushed ice into the glass halfway up or down.
We add the soda to fill about 2/3 of the glass.
It's time to pour the rum. We start with the amount marked and we try and increase depending on how strong we like the mojito.
Mix everything well and decorate with mint leaves. It can be taken with a straw if you like.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we Cubans do, delicious cocktail for the delights of your palate

SATSIVI

Satsivi (Georgian: ??????) is a thick paste made from walnuts and served cold (‘Tsivi’ means ‘cold’ in Georgian). It is used in a variety of meat (usually chicken and turkey), fish and vegetable dishes. Traditional Satsivi, eaten at Christmas and New Year, is made with turkey. At other times of the year it is usually made with chicken. In this recipe we show how to make Satsivi with chicken.

Home-Style Chicken Biryani

Ingredients

1.5 kilo whole chicken (or turkey), 700 grams of walnuts, 5 medium sized onions, 4 cloves of garlic, 2 tbs of white wine vinegar, 1 tsp of dried coriander, 1 tsp of blue fenugreek, 1 heaped tsp of dried marigold, 1 heaped tsp of dried red pepper, half tsp of cinnamon, 5 crushed cloves and, salt (amount dependent upon personal preference).

Directions

Remove the chicken from the pot and add to a roasting tray. Do not discard the water that the chicken was boiled in as this will be needed later. Use some of the surface oil in the pot to baste the chicken. There should be no need for additional oil. Roast the chicken on 180 C heat until cooked. Cut the roasted chicken into medium sized piecesFinely chop the onions and add to a pan with a little of the surface oil from the pot use to parboil the chicken. Fry for 6-7 minutes. Add the fried onions to a mixing bowl and use a blender to make them smooth. Add the onions to the pot used to par boil the chicken. Grind the walnuts. We used a meat grinder. If the walnuts are not old, the grinding process will produce some walnut oil. Save this. Re-grind the walnutsAdd 1 tsp of dried coriander, 1 tsp of blue fenugreek, 1 heaped tsp of dried marigold, half tsp of cinnamon, 5 crushed cloves. Mix by hand and use your hands to crush the mixture to extract any remaining oil from the walnuts. Save the oil. Add 1 heaped tsp of dried red pepper, 4 cloves of garlic and salt (amount dependent upon personal preference) to a mortar and use a pestle to crush the ingredients. Add the crushed red pepper/garlic/salt mixture, together with 2 tbs of white wine vinegar, to the ground walnuts and mix thoroughly. Gradually add water to the nut mixture from the pot used to parboil the chicken, mixing as the water is added. Keep adding and mixing until the mixture has a smooth consistency, like in the picture below. Once mixed, hold a sieve over the pot used to parboil the chicken and pour the mixture into the pot. Discard any remaining large pieces left in the sieve. Add the chicken pieces to the pot, bring to the boil and remove from the heat. Allow to completely cool before serving. Serving: Serve cold. Any excess walnut oil that was extracted during preparation can be poured onto the dish.
