Ill start :

EMPANADAS DE PINO
http://z.about.com/d/southamericanfood/1/I/i/2/-/-/DSC_0484.jpg

In Chile, the most traditional empanada filling is called "pino". Pino is a seasoned mixture of ground beef, onions, raisins, black olives, and hard boiled eggs. The empananda dough is quick and easy to make, and can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator. The pino tastes best if made the day before and allowed to rest overnight before filling the empanandas.

Prep Time: 35 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes
Ingredients:

* Empanada dough (see recipe link below)
* 3 large onions, chopped
* 1 pound ground beef
* 2 teaspoons cumin
* 1 teaspoon chile powder
* 1 tablespoon paprika
* 1 beef bouillon cube, dissolved in 1/4 cup hot water
* 2 tablespoons flour
* 1/2 cup raisins
* 1/2 cup chopped olives
* 2 hard boiled eggs, sliced
* 1 egg yolk
* 2 tablespoons milk

Preparation:

1. Prepare empanada dough and chill.

2. Cook the onions and garlic in the vegetable oil and butter until softened. Add the ground beef, cumin, chile powder, paprika, beef bouillon, and salt and pepper to taste.

3. Cook the beef, stirring and crumbling the meat, until browned. Add the flour and continue to cook for 5 or 10 minutes more.

4. Remove the meat mixture and let cool. The beef mixture will keep up to 2 days in the refrigerator.

5. Shape the empanadas: Separate the dough into golf ball size pieces, and roll into smooth balls. Let rest for 5 minutes. On a floured surface, roll each ball of dough into a 6 inch diameter circle, about 1/4 inch thick. Add 1 tablespoon of the beef filling, a few raisins and some chopped olives, and a slice of hard boiled egg to the middle of the circle.

6. Brush the edges with water and fold the pastry in half over the filling, to make a semi-circle.

7. Seal the edges by pressing down with your fingers. Brush the sealed edge lightly with water, then turn the edge toward the middle and press with your fingers to seal.

8. Mix the egg yolk with 2 tablespoons milk, and brush the empanadas with the mixture.

9. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

What do you think ? ;)

Empanada Dough Recipe

This recipe produces a sweet dough that contrasts perfectly with savory fillings. Empanada dough is less flaky than pie crust (although you can substitute frozen pie crust dough in a pinch) - it has a tender texture that soaks up the filling. It's easier to make than a pie crust, because the fat (traditionally lard) is partially melted and kneaded into the flour with your hands.

This dough can be used for baked or fried empanandas. If you are going to fry the empanadas, roll the dough out slightly thinner (less than 1/4" thickness).

Ingredients:

* 4 cups flour
* 1-2 teaspoons salt
* 2-3 tablespoons sugar
* 2 tablespoons butter, melted
* 12 tablespoons lard or vegetable shortening, at room temperature
* 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon cup water

Preparation:

1. Sift the flour into a bowl. Stir in the salt and the sugar.

2. Melt the butter with the lard or shortening, and stir into the flour with a fork.

3. Add the vegetable shortening or lard, and knead until it fairly well blended with the flour.

4. Stir in the 1/2 cup of water, a little at a time until the dough comes together smoothly. Keep kneading the dough, adding water if necessary, until the dough is very smooth, about 5-10 minutes. You can knead the dough with a standing mixer and a dough hook attachment.

5. Cover the dough with saran wrap and let rest on the counter for about a half hour. (Dough can also be kept overnight in the refrigerator, then brought to room temperature before using.) Dough should be soft and smooth, and not elastic - if you poke a hole in it with your finger, the indentation should remain.

6. Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and roll into desired thickness.

7. Makes enough dough for 8 large empanadas.

Hainanese Chicken Rice

http://www.nibbledish.com/images/size/280x280/recipe_images/e8b7a7c33ef5cf5e723f2f6ea292e221ramgs_hainanese_ch icken_rice.jpg

INGREDIENTS :

1 whole chicken [2½-3 lbs]
5-6 stalks fresh scallions
6 inch fresh ginger, peeled, cut into thick slices
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
2 additional stalks fresh scallions, chopped, for garnish [optional]
1 seedless cucumber, peeled, halved and sliced diagonally
a few sprigs of fresh cilantro, for garnishing
½ tsp white peppercorns
salt
Ingredients for Chicken rice :

3 cups long grained rice, washed and drained
1 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tsp salt
2½ tbsp chicken fat or vegetable oil
6 cups, or more, chicken broth [from the cooking broth]
6 pandan leaves [screwpine leaves] [optional]
Ingredients for Special Chili Dipping Sauce :

1 tbsp kaffir lime juice [Substitute: lime or lemon juice]
1½-2 tbsp chicken broth [from the cooking broth]
2 tsp sugar
4 tbsp hot chili sauce
4 cloves garlic, finely ground or mashed
1 inch ginger, finely ground or grated
salt
To Prepare Special Chili Dipping Sauce :

Mix hot chili sauce with lime juice, sugar, garlic, ginger, chicken broth [spooning some of the chicken fat oil] and salt to taste
Pour chili sauce into small condiment dishes, for each individual serving

To Prepare Chicken Rice :

Wash rice till water runs clear, drain well
Heat wok on high, add the reserved chicken fat, render into an oil to about 2½ tbsp [add vegetable oil if chicken fat oil is insufficient ]
Add chopped garlic, stir-fry for a few seconds
Add the raw rice, stir-fry till the rice grains start to look translucent, about 8-10 mins
Transfer rice to a pot, add 6 cups chicken broth, salt and pandan leaves [*Note: depending on the type of rice, use more or less of the chicken broth]
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer uncovered, until the chicken broth is absorbed by the rice [small 'bubble' holes start to appear on the rice]
Reduce heat to very low, cover the rice with a tight-fitting lid, cook for a further 10-12 mins
Turn off heat, DO NOT open the cover, wait for 10 mins before opening [steam inside will gently finish steaming the rice]
Fluff up the rice with a fork [If rice is not fully cook, simply add a little chicken broth, cover and steam on very low heat for another 5 mins or so]
Alternatively, 'fry' the raw rice in a wok until translucent, then transfer into an electric rice cooker and add sufficient chicken broth to cook
Any leftover chicken broth after making the rice, can be served as a small side soup, garnished with some chopped cilantro
Line a serving platter with cucumber slices, arrange chicken pieces on top, sprinkle with soy sauce, sesame oil, and garnish with chopped scallions and cilantro sprigs
Serve Hainan chicken [usually served at room temperature] with chicken rice, side soup - and special chili dipping sauce!

This recipe is the Jordanian national dish. Its called "Mansaf".

Ingredients

* 2 large containers plain yogurt
* 1 to 3 strands saffron
* 2 lbs lamb , cut into chunks with bones attached (shanks are good, but any lamb meat with bones is good)
* ***You can use chicken, pork, goat or beef if you don't like lamb***
* Water to boil meat and make stock
* 1/4 small white onion, chopped
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 2 Tbsp butter
* 3 oz slivered almonds
* 3 oz pine nuts
* 4 cups cooked white rice
* 1 box crisp Middle Eastern cracker bread
* Very large platter for serving


Directions

1. *Follow directions precisely!*
2. In a large stock pot boil the meat and onion with enough water to cover by 4 inches. Boil until meat is tender and can be pulled off the bone by gently using a fork (1 to 2 hours).
3. In another stock pot or large pot pour in all of the yogurt before turning on heat.
4. On HIGH heat bring the yogurt to a boil.
5. CONSTANTLY STIR THE YOOGURT WITH A WOODEN SPOON.
6. **STIR IN ONE DIRECTION ONLY! iF YOU STIR LEFT, CONTINUE TO STIR LEFT. DO NOT REVERSE DIRECTION AT ANY TIME** If you reverse directions the yogurt will curdle.
7. As the yogurt is coming to a boil add the saffron.
8. Once yogurt comes to a boil immediately turn off heat.
9. Remove lamb from the other pot and strain the stock.
10. Add 2 to3 cups of stock to the yogurt pot (you may make the yogurt thinner by using 3 cups of stock, thicker by only using 2 cups).,STIR IN THE SAME DIRECTION AS BEFORE.
11. Add 1 Tbsp Bharat spice mixture (see post for this recipe). You may add another Tbsp if the taste is not spicy enough. STIR IN SAME DIRECTION AS BEFORE, JUST ENOUGH TO COMBINE INGREDIENTS.
12. Add salt. If sauce is not tart enough you can add lemon juice (up to 1/2 of a small lemon). STIR IN SAME DIRECTION AS BEFORE, JUST ENOUGH TO COMBINE INGREDIENTS.
13. Add lamb to the yogurt/broth mixture and bring to a boil once more. DO NOT STIR. Turn off heat once the mixture has come to a boil.
14. Brown the pine nuts and almonds with the butter in a small non-stick frying pan.
15. To serve:
16. Place the cracker bread on the platter.
17. Top the bread with all of the rice.
18. Place meat pieces on top of the rice.
19. Ladle on enough yogurt sauce to make the bread at the bottom very moist.
20. Pour the rest of the sauce into a large bowl for serving (you may use individual bowls if you wish).
21. Top the meat/ rice/bread/mixture with by liberally sprinklling the almonds and pine nuts over the top.
22. Set the platter in the middle of the table and let guests take their own portions by using a large serving spoon. Top the individual servings with yogurt sauce.



I'm not a huge fan of it, unless mum is the one who cooks it, so try it at your own risk. :p

Wild Boar Goulash (Goulash do Bakas)

From my hometown, Sabah (Malaysian part of North Borneo)

This is a quick goulash, and the wild boar meat can be substituted for other meats but if you want to offer your friends that 'savage tribal goulash' from Sabah wild boar seems just right...

Ingredients (yields goulash for 15)



* 1.5 kg of wild boar, diced
* 4 large onions, sliced
* ½ cup of finely chopped garlic
* 2 spoons ground red hot chillies
* 150 grms tomato purée
* 1 litre rice wine
* 50 grms hot chillies paste
* 150 grms cili boh (or 150 grms dried red chillies, soaked in water and thoroughly blended)
* 4 large carrots, coarsely cut en julienne
* 4 medium sized potatoes, diced
* 1.5 litres beef or chicken broth
* 150 champignons de Paris, sliced
* 2 large eggplants, diced
* cooking oil, brown sugar, salt and pepper to taste

Preparation



1. heat cooking oil in a deep cooking pot and stir fry diced meat until brown; remove from pan and put aside
2. in the same cooking pot and remaining oil – add if necessary – sauté onions until translucent
3. add half of the garlic, and the ground chillies, stir over hot fire
4. stir in tomato purée and fry mixture over hot fire
5. add rice wine, stir and let alcohol evaporate
6. stir in chillies paste, cili boh and add pre-fired meat
7. add vegetables and broth, mix and let simmer for 15 minutes
8. add mushrooms and eggplants, simmer for another 30 minutes or until potatoes are done
9. add brown sugar, salt and pepper to taste, eventually crème fraîche, yoghurt or cream

The brown sugar is mainly to take off the acidic edge of the tomato puree; if you fry the purée thoroughly (but don’t burn it!) you will have removed the acidity. If the goulash is too hot for your taste add crème fraîche, cream or yoghurt.

@ OP: In Malaysia we have a similar food, it's named Karipap :p

Herring is always first frozen to kill off the potential parasite (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anisakis). I don't know about other hazards but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be served here if there was a risk.

Coddle

The classic Irish coddle recipe is basically a ham, sausage, potato, and onion stove-top casserole. It makes an easy and hearty meal.
Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hours,

Ingredients:

1-1/2 pounds pork sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
1-1/2 pounds smoked ham, cut into 1-inch dice
1 quart boiling water
2 large yellow onions, peeled and thinly diced
2 pounds potatoes, peeled and thickly sliced
4 tablespoons chopped parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preparation:

Place the sausage and ham in the boiling water and boil for 5 minutes. Drain, but reserve the liquid.

Put the meat into a large saucepan (or an oven-proof dish) with the onions, potatoes, and parsley. Add enough of the stock to not quite cover the contents. Cover the pot and simmer gently for about 1 hour, or until the liquid is reduced by half and all the ingredients are cooked but not mushy. You may need to remove the lid during the last half of the cooking process. Season with salt and pepper.

Coddle is lovely - though it's more associated with Dublin in particular than the whole country I guess.

This is the recipe of a plum cake I made yesterday - with plums from a tree in my garden, that I brought home from somewhere else when it was just a little offshoot. This year, at the ripe age of 12, it bore fruit for the first time (we found out we had been pruning it the wrong way :o).

Scotch Broth, really nice soup that is great in the winter time. My mum is great at making this.

1kg neck of mutton or lamb
75g pearl barley
1 large onion
75g split peas or fresh peas
1 large leek
3 wee neeps (turnip)
1 swede
water depending on thickness required - try 2.5 litres
3 carrots
2 tablespoons of freshly chopped parsley
salt and pepper
small cabbage (optional)

If you don't fancy that you could try a deep fried Mars Bar. Yuck!!

1 Mars bar
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup cornflour
1 pinch baking soda
milk or beer
oil (for deep frying)

Chill the chocolate bar by keeping it in the fridge, but don't freeze it.
Mix the flours and bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) together.
Add milk (traditional) or beer (which gives a lighter result) until you get a batter with the consistency of thin cream.
Heat the oil until a small piece of bread will brown in a few seconds, but don't allow to smoke.
Remove wrapper from chilled chocolate bar. :p
Coat completely in batter.
Carefully lower into hot oil and fry until golden brown.
Serve, with ice cream or french fries, if you're so inclined.

Lora !!! :eek: *drools* I'm taking the first flight to Greece now ! :p

Can these dishes be found in Cypriot restaurants as well ? I'm sure about Moussakas cause we had that in Larnaka, but what about Souvlaki ?

I'm not sure, but I think you can find souvlaki in Cyprus:p

The Cypriot cuisine has many similar dishes with the Greek one. But as fas as I know, even in a Greek restaurant abroad, you can't find souvlaki as delicious as you will here. You can try it there, but in case you don't like it, remember that the Greek food is best served in Greece!:D

When I was in Athens there were sweet stores every block and a half when I was walking down the street... You guys sure know how to life ;) I love touloumpas too, but I haven't tried the Mpougasta. However, you guys use cinnamon and honey a lot.. absolutely yummy combination, I tried these cookies with cinnamon honey and orange peels. Delish.

In other European countries they had sweets and bread only in supermarkets or in expensive pastries' stores. In Greece you can find a sweet shop or a bakery (as most of bakeries have sweets as well) in every block as you put it. As years go by, they become more and more expensive though...

Reindeer for three persons:

500 -700grams of reindeer meat cut in thin slices
6-7 to 8-9 potatoes depending if you want to smash them or not*
Cranberries/cranberry jelly
Various spices

You cut the meat when it is still frozen. It's the easiest way to get very thin slices of the meat.

Fry the meat with margarine, butter or reindeers own fat. Some people prefer it in it's own fat as it makes it tastier to them. Personally I prefer butter for the salty taste. When the meat has a good brown/dark brown colour to it, add a liter of water and let it boil on low heat for at least 40 minutes. This eliminates the chewing gum effect which we all hate. Whilst boiling the meat add spices according to your own taste. Personally I put these spices:

Black pepper powder (I add so much of it that I can't even count how much I put it)
Citrus pepper (adds a nice edge to it)
Two spoons of salt
A small bit of garlic powder

Whilst boiling the meat start cutting/cleaning the potatoes and let them boil till they are soft. You can either leave them like that or smash them (add milk, butter and salt) as it really depends on the persons taste.

Once the meat has been boiling for 40 to 60 minutes it is good to eat.

Serve with cranberry jelly (sour or sweet) and enjoy. You can do this with moose and other deer as well.

*Potatoes are healthiest when they are boiled with their skin as barely any of the minerals get loose. You just peel the skin off when they are done. You serve the potatoes with some sauce from the boiled reindeer meat or with butter/cream sauce.

Edit: I'm from Finland, this is not a dutch delicacy.

Edit2: Lora.. you just love Greece food and Greece don't you? :p

If something is tasty it doesn't have to be originated from your country. Plus, once you make it yourself, it's your own personal creation!




Edit : msalpha2omega I'm going to eat one as well tonight.

^I don't want to start a fight about the names or anything, cause I don't care what it's called, as soon as I eat it.....
Ok in North Greece we call "souvlaki"(Lara Croft!'s picture) "gyros", and we call "kalamaki"(see below) "souvlaki"

How can a thing with so much fat in it be so yummy at times. Honestly when I go past a fast food restaurant that's the first thing that comes up in my mind.
