HOW TO MAKE SPICY BAKED MACARONI




I have received a lot of request to show this delicious dish..Spicy Baked Macaroni. It is a complete meal by itself and it is also great for high teas and parties...by itself or with hot Thai chilly sauce. This is a dish that allows for creativity. We can use sea food or meat instead of chicken and we can also add some cheese as toppings.

I'd like to apologise for the abrupt ending of the video clip..that is due to a technical oversight and human mood hehehe. My photographer has moods so..:)

I have however provided the photographs of the end result. So here's the video clip.Enjoy.



Ingredients:

100gm macaroni (boiled and drained)
100gm minced chicken

(cubed):
1 capsicum
1 big onions
1 tomato
1 carrot

1 tbs pepper
1 stalk of spring onion
1 stalk of coriander leaves
2 cloves garlic (pounded or crushed)
1 inch ginger (pounded or blend)
1 tin button mushroom (if fresh mushroom about 1 cup)
25gm butter
1 tbs vegetable oil
salt to taste
1/2 inch cinnamon,1 star anise,5 cloves,2 cardamom

For custard:
8 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tbs corn flour
salt to taste



Method:

For Custard:
1) Beat eggs, flour, milk and salt and set aside

Macaroni:
1) Heat butter and oil in pan/wok
2) Fry garlic and ginger for half a minute and add in the four spices (cinnamon,cloves,cardamom and star anise).
3) Add onion. Just sweat the onion and quickly add the chicken.
4) Add in the pepper, mushroom, tomato, capsicum, carrot and macaroni.
5) Add in salt and spring onions and coriander leaves.
6) Mix well all the ingredients and remove from the fire.

Note: The purpose is to mix all the ingredients and spices to the macaroni before baking therefore the frying must not be long.

7) Put the macaroni mixture into a baking dish which has been lined with butter.
8) Pour the custard over the macaroni in the dish.
9) Add some butter on top of the dish and sprinkle fried onions.
10) Bake until the custard is cooked. Use bottom and upper grill for faster cooking time.
11) Remove from oven and serve.




So till we meet again,take care of yourself. To all my Hindu friends, Happy Divali.

SPICY FRIED MACARONI

I'd like to share with you something Italian minus the cheese but spicy. The dish is called Spicy Fried Macaroni. As usual you can reduce the amount of spices involved if you prefer the dish to be less spicy. If you want the macaroni to be chilli hot you can add in 3 tbs of blended dry chillies instead of curry powder. The vegetables involved are my favourite but you can substitute them with yours. You can be creative with dishes like this =). So here's the recipe.Have fun.

SPICY FRIED MACARONI




Ingredients:

400gm macaroni boiled until soft and drained
400gm minced meat wash and drained
1 tin button mushroom (drained the liquid and wash the mushroom.Cut into thin slices)
1 carrot (remove skin and wash.Cut into thin strips)
1 tomato (wash and cut into wedges)
1 big onion (remove skin and wash. Cut into cubes)
1 inch ginger (remove skin and wash. Cut into thin strips)
2 cloves garlic (crushed or dice into small pieces)
3 tbs meat curry powder (mixed with some water to form a paste)
1 tbs pepper (mixed into curry powder paste)
salt to taste
3/4 cup vegetable oil for frying

Method:

1) Heat the oil and fry ginger and garlic then add in big onion. Fry until aromatic.
2) Add in the curry powder and pepper and salt. Stir for few minutes.
3) Add in the minced meat and stir well until all the spices are well mixed with the minced meat.
4) Add in the mushroom and carrot and stir well. Fry until the meat is cooked.
5) Put in the tomato wedges and the macaroni.
6) Stir well until all the ingredients are well mixed. Fry for five minutes. Do not fry for too long because the macaroni is already boiled earlier and soft.
7) Scoop onto a plate. Garnish with sliced spring onion,fried onions,sliced red chillies and sliced omelet. Serve with sliced thai chillies and soya sauce if you like.

Till we meet again take care of yourself.
