Homemade Buddha Jump Over The Wall Soup recipe

Making Buddha Jump Over The Wall Soup is actually easy, but i guess it’s require time and energy (LPG or Electric Power) effort  for waiting it done. If you using the dried ingredients, you should rehydrate the dried ingredients first before using it, started with Soaking and preparing dried sea cucumber and then followed by Soaking and preparing the dried abalone. Don’t forget to Deep frying, soaking and preparing the fish maw. Some ingredients need to be soaked hours or minutes before cooking, just counting your  estimated dinner time. One of the most important things is DO NOT DISCARD THE SOAKING LIQUID !!!, except the tasteless liquid for soaking sea cucumber  and shark’s fins. The soaking liquid of dried abalone, dried scallops, dried oyster and dried squid is tasty, make sure you save it for the soup. I guess it’s better be budgeting the ready to use products, either frozen or canned shark fin, sea cucumber and abalone if you don’t want to wasting your time to prepare it from scracth.

Vietnamese Grilled Chicken Wrapped In Betel Leaves

Grilled spicy chicken wrapped in betel leaves is a Vietnamese inspired recipe, the inspirational authentic version called Bo La Lot using ground or minced spiced beef  and wrapped with wild betel (Piper Sarmentosum) before grilled. The minced beef seasoned with a plenty of spice and herbs like lemongrass, scallion, ginger, chili and drizzled with fish sauce like commonly vietnamese cuisine. Instead using wild betel leaves or daun cabe jawa or daun kadok, i’m using betel leaves (Piper Betle) or daun sirih in Bahasa Indonesia with a strong pungent tea and peppery hint when the leaves grilled over the charcoal or frying pan.

Vietnamese Grilled Chicken with lemongrass recipe using betel leaf. Betel plants originated from Southeast Asia and has been cultivated for thousands of years. Betel leaves extracted for its antioxidants and active enzimes and used for medicinal healing, stimulants, cosmetic industries, gargle solutions and even breath fresheners. In dentistry, beside the medicinal purpose of betel leaves extract, the execessive routine use like chewing betel with areca nuts clinically proven  provoked a benign oral tumor and lead to malignant oral cancer. Fortunately, this practice was rarely seen but on the elder persons like our grandparents era. All parts of the betel plant are edible, but the young leaves is preferred for direct consumptions for it’s tender texture  and milder flavour.

Escargot or Snail for Spanish Valencian Paella

Valencian paella without escargot or land snail or bekicot in Bahasa is not quite “alla valenciana” for me. Paella with  mostly snails rather than meat is consider as poorer version, however, sometimes used nothing more than snails for meat. Finding escargot isn’t that easy in Indonesia, unless you’ve generous enought to visiting inported gourmet supermarket. I purchased a couple of small tin of escargot snail or daging bekicot kalengan once i luckily spot it on Carrefour Supermarket Palembang. This canned escargot or snail in chilli sauce is a product of WONG COCO®, a trusted Indonesian food company. If you lucky enought to access the live snail, you should keep it on a clean box without any food for cleaning it’s intestine prior to cooking. You could use the African land snail that available in most asian country too, i’ve using it for my French Style ESCARGOT Recipe and i guess like it for it’s chewy and yet crunchy texture.

Recipe Valencian Paella with Red Rice, Chicken, Rabbit, Snail and Vegetables

Valencian paella seasoning basically contains saffron threads, fresh rosemary, sweet or smoked paprika powder, garlic, shallots, salt, freshly grounded peppercorn, olive oil and water or stock. Saffron is the key ingredients of authentic paella, nothing could replace the pungent safranal aromas, but you can replace it with turmeric powder only for it’s yellow color. I guess you should invest on good grade Spanish or Italian saffron called “zafferano dell’Aquila” for your kitchen spice rack, trust me, it’s worth for the money.

Recipe Paella Valenciana with Chicken, Rabbit, Snail and Veggies

Making paella alla valenciana is quite tricky, simply because it’s contains several meat and vegetables that needed different time to cooking. Basically, the tougher meat and veggies is sauteed and cooked in liquid  with the rice, while the easily cooked ingredients is  placed over the  nearly cooked rice. I’m using short grain red rice for making this paella recipe, that’s why i need prolonged the soaking process for about 1 hour instead of 30 minutes. The asian red rice contains more fibre then it isn’t as easy to tenderised the regular short grain rice. You could see the  step by step pictorial making paella on my Seafood Paella alla Marisco Recipe.

Soccarat, The Best Part of Paella: Toasted, Charred and Slighly Blackened Rice in The Bottom of The Pan

The best part of paella is the layer of charred and toasted (blackened) rice at the bottom of the pan called socarrat in Spain. The The toasted rice develops on its own if the paella is cooked over a burner or open fire. If cooked in an oven, however, it will not, but you can made the socarrat by exposing the the pan over a high flame while listening to the rice toast at the bottom of the pan. Once the aroma of toasted rice wafts upwards, remove it from the heat, then the paella must then sit with lid covered for about ten minutes  before serving. Some recipes call for paella to be covered and left to settle for five or ten minutes after cooking.

  • Remove the pan from the heat and let it rest for about 10 minutes prior to serving.

Just like my JEONBOKJUK or Korean Abalone Porridge, this scallop porridge or conpoy congee is considered as a immune system booster for elderly people, newly giving birth mother and also post sickness patients. In chinese descent culinary, dried scallop is one of luxury items. Luxurious ingredients deserved to be paired with my Homemade Superior Stock/Broth that made of  beef bone marrow, malay/kampung chicken, and mushrooms and conpoy soaking liquid. Actually, i used to made a superior stock with crumbled dried scallop/conpoy, but fot this recipe i let the scallop whole.

Conpoy is actually dried scallop that made of the adductor muscle of scallops or shell clams that preboiled and then dried with under the sun ray or electric oven. Once the liquid content reduced, the flavour is contentrated, that’s what made the smell of dried scallop or conpoy is pungent, oceanic and reminiscent of certain salt-cured meats. Dried scallop got a concentrated rich and umami  taste due to its high content of  amino acids, such as glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid that easily blown your taste buds.

I’m using an kerang kampak (axe clams) dried scallop for this poriddge  recipe. This scallop also called kerang kapak in Indonesia or callo de hacha Scallops in Mexico. The shape and the size of the kerang kampak scallops is a sort of kidney. This scallop is much more bigger than common scallop, as you seen the comparison beetween the axe clams scallop with  the medium size common scallop on photograph above.The shell of kerang kampak could reach more than 30 cm and the size of the scallop (abductor muscle) could reach 10 cm. Since finding dried scallop is not that easy in Indonesia, i dried it for myself, beside i can make sure there’s no additive and also preservatives on my dried scallop.  The medium size of regular scallop on the second photograph cost me about 22 USD for only a 100 grams, pretty damn pricey!.
Soaking and Preparing Dry Scallops before Cooking

Soaking and Preparing Dry Scallops before Cooking

How to soaking and preparing dried scallop before cooking is another following step that actually a key for making a delicious porridge. I like to soaked the scallop in the fridge overnight, you can add some ginger and also rice wine on this step to reduce the fishy smells. Once the dried scallop is soften you can shredded it or cooked it whole. NEVER WASTE THE DRIED SCALLOP SOAKING LIQUID! make sure you retain the soaking water as it will be highly flavored and can be added to whatever you are cooking. For preparing the rice for making the porriddge, mix the rinsed rice with a bit of oil and salt before boiling it. The rice will be broken down very quickly and produce a very nice starchy texture.

I purchased  a couple pack of  Borde Cepes-Extra Porcini Mushrooms or dried porcini/cepes mushrooms in Grand Lucky Supermarket, Jakarta,  for about 5 USD for tiny 28 gr package. Pretty pricey, but i guess it’s worht for the price, besides, it’s not easy to find a gourmet mushrooms in Indonesia, even in Jakarta. I guess this is away cheaper than porcini mushrooms that i’m use fo making Smoked Lamb Chop with PORCINI Mushrooms Crusted, Saffron Polenta and Chicken Ballotine Recipe with Spinach, Minced Chicken and Porcini Mushrooms Powder Stuffing that i’m brought from Ebay.

Brown Rice Risotto Recipe with Porcini Mushrooms and Smoked Chicken Breast

Brown Rice, Beras Coklat

I’m using short grain brown rise because i’m concern about my weight lately. Brown rice is got it’s outer hull removed, but the underlying bran and germ layers are left on the grain. This made brown rice is more nutritious than white rice because the bran contains vitamins, minerals and oils. It also has more fiber than white rice.  The glycemic index of brown rice slightly lowerthen white rice, but since the brown rice got additional fiber and nutrients contains, you may eat less and your stomach is fullfilled longer within and thus have a lower glycemic load from brown rice. Brown rice more expensive than common white rice, partly due to its relatively low supply and difficulty of storage and transport. Brown rice should be placed in dark, airthight and cold place because it can easily oxidized and ruined in a room temperature, that’s why you should refrigerate it in a tupperware or another airthight box if you lived in tropical country like Indonesia.
