We are still catching up with recipes, and finally got round to making these date balls from Sierra Leone, thanks to Natalie :)
Here's the second recipe we made last week-end: Tseke's recipe for Mongolian Buuz. We all got pretty good a folding/sealing the dumplings!
Okay - so after we made these, we realised that we probably should have made them bigger, big enough to wrap the food up. But even as they were, they made for a lovely lunch! A big thank you to Lorenzo for sending us the recipe!
What's better that receiving a letter from a "missing country"? A letter from a missing country with a recipe! With big thanks to Nozima, here is our attempt at "plov". We used Nozima's recipe as a starting point, then googled to find what kind of meat would be most suitable. Although most online versions we found were lamb, we also saw chicken and beef plov, and decided to make ours a beef version. We added cumin, paprika, and a bit of garlic, and used our slow cooker.
