A great sauce for your hot or cold noodles, as a dip sauce or with some spring rolls. And it’s great to have some in the fridge, because it’s really yummy. My daughter want to drink the sauce.. It is also great to marinate the meat in the sauce, and then fry it in some oil.Continue reading “NUOC CHAM, VIETNAMESE CHILI SAUCE”
I serve this with some rice, but you can as well have it as a soup. This is a favourite in my family. Continue reading “Tom Kha Gai”
This is a dish that is supposed to be done with pork, but most of the time I use chicken instead. The first time I did it with chicken was because they didn’t have any pork in my little shop in Shanghai when I lived there. Since then I must have cooked the dish at least a 100 times with chicken, so I suppose we are just used to it… This is one of my kids favourite dishes.
Ingredients for 4-5 persons if you eat it as a full meal.
500 gram chicken filet
100 gram salted peanuts with no shell
3 egg whites
80 gram of cornstarch (or 16 tsp.)
2 decilitre chicken stock
4 teaspoons rice wine
4 teaspoons Chinese soy sauce
1 scallion the white part
1-1,5 teaspoon of ginger powder
1-2 thinly sliced garlic
3 teaspoons of white sugar

The perfect soup for a cold day, it keeps you warm and full. And you can skip the meat and the you get a vegetarian Goulash soup. I made this soup with my colleague Gunilla when I helped her out at the restaurant at KSLA. And I just fell in love with it!!! So here you are, I hoe you like it!!
In this recipe you can choose to serve it straight from the stove, or prepare it and serve a bit later. Both works great, sometimes I cook a lot and then I can have the same dish the next day. Serve with rice and vegetables.
A great dish as it is, or serve with some noodles or rice. Or make lot’s of different dishes and have a real feast!
