Herbs Butter Roasted Chicken Recipe with Crispy Skin and Moist Meat served with Homemade Peanut Butter Satay Sauce. It’s a kinda late to said happy EASTER to everyones, but i guess it’s better then never thou. Unfortunately, i couldn’t spent this year easter with my family due to my hectic and thight clinical schedules. Somehow, i felt i need to bring the senses homey to my house; which is represent in a comfort food like roasted chicken. Well, actually my mom used to roast a malay or kampong chicken that already braised until tender in rendang or thick curry sauces for hours instead of regular hen chicken, but i guess my version of roasted hen chicken with melted herbs butter underneath the skin is considered as a comfort for my licking.

The highlight of this roasted chicken recipe is the crispness and the crunchyness of the chicken skin within a refreshing burst of herbs butter on it. To make a crispy skin  roasted chicken, the chicken skin must be totally dry. Make sure you patted dry the chicken skin with paper towels first, then exposed the chicken skin with flowing air from  a fan for an hour before cooking will really do the trick. I’ve try this dry skin method and it works with my Chinese Style Roasted Squab Pigeon.  You also can hang the chicken with a hook so the juices can dripped out and the carcass can rotate freely in front of the fan.  Another methot that usualy applied before the fan tricks is a good rub of salt. A sprinkling of salt will tend to bring moisture to the surface, where  the flown air from the fan and also the heat of the oven will evaporate it later.

The best method of making a crispy and crackling roasted chicken skin is separating the connective tissue between the skin and the meat. This tricks allow the fat underneath the skin renderred and enhanced the crispiness of the roasted chicken skin. You also can put infused butter underneath the inflated chicken skin like herbs butter that i use within this recipe. If you use herbs, such as mint, cilantro, parsley, and dill, make sure you squeezed it out until dry with somekind of cheese cloth after you chopping it. Any remaining  moisture in the herbs infused butter that slipped underneath the chicken skin will messed up the roasted chicken skin into pale and soggy instead of crispy and crunchy. You can use a bicycle pump or baloon pump to inflating the chicken skin and forced the skin away from the meat, it’s gonna be better if you had air compressor pump to do the blown the chicken skin job.

The best temperature setting to roasting the chicken between 350-450 F (180-235 °C), it  can give you nicely crispy skin while the meat is tender, juicy and cooked through. Never exposed the chicken with the dripping liquid and oil (gravy) while you roasting the chicken or the chicken skin won’t crisp. Put the chicken above a shallow metal rack that holds the chicken above the edge of pan. Start roast the chicken breast side-up, and flip it over about a third of the way through the cooking process. Roasting a chicken isn’t  maxillofacial surgery. Follow a few simple rules, be willing to engage in trial and error, and you should have it down fairly soon. Good luck within your roasted chicken!

zuchini fritter recipe courgette pancake savoury zucchini bread

The term of zucchini pancake and zucchini fritter sometimes a little bit confusing, but i guess the major different of pancake and fritter is the method of frying it. Even basically the zuchinni batter is the same, the end result is different in taste and also texture. Zucchini pancake made of thick batter that pan fried with a little ammount of cooking oil that made the inner side of the pancake is moist and pluffy, while the outside is slighly charred. Zucchini fritter made of thinner batter that deep fried with cooking oil that made the inner side of the pancake is still moist and firmer than zucchini pancake while the outside very crispy and crunchy. Honestly, i love the crispy and crunchy deep fried zucchini fritter more than the zucchini pancake, but  i guess i won’t add any unnecesssary ammount of calories for my snack.

This savoury zucchini pancake or courgette fritter in this recipe is not only less calories that i’ve already mention before, but also gluten free. One of my older causin along with my lovely niece who came to my house several days ago got some health issues with gluten.This savoury gluten free zucchini pancake recipe is gonna be my first project with my Rob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour that made of garbanzo flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, sorghum flour, and fava flour medley. Instead, you can use rice flour or even red rice flour as a substitution for the gluten free baking flour. Making the zucchini pancake batter is so easy, simply mix all the ingredients in a big glass bowl. The batter  gonna be looks dry in the beginning of mixing but when you let it sit for five to ten minutes, the batter consistency got thinner due the osmosis dripping liquid from the grated zucchini. Once you sit the batter too long, it’s gonna be too liquid and not easy to handle, you need to adjust the consistency by adding more flour into it.

Homemade savoury and gluten free zucchini pancake sometimes got a bitter aftertaste, but for my asian licking i considered it’s pleasantly bitter. Zucchini, along with many of its closely related relatives including cucumber, produces an intensely bitter group of compounds known as cucurbitacins. If you didn’t like the bitter aftertaste, you can peel off the zucchini before grated it to reduce the bitterness. Choose the medium size zuchinni with light green color because it’s less bitter than the  small and darker color zucchini. This savoury zucchini pancake got some kicking cheesy flavour from grated Parmaggiano-Reggiano parmesan cheese and soft and creamy mascarpone cheese. I also add finely chopped bacon and mashed anchovies to the zucchini pancake batter to  give kicking savoury flavour. The saltiness of the anchovies take over the zucchini bitterness.

Lamb and Goat Meat Mandi RIce

Lamb and Goat Mandi Rice Recipe. Mandi rice  or Mandhi rice, also known as Haneeth, is the traditional spicy rice dish that very popular in the rest of the Arabian Peninsula and in many other Arab countries, such as Egypt and Syria. The word mandi comes from the Arabic word nada, meaning dew and reflects the moist ‘dewy’ texture of the meat. You may notice why i’m using lmab and also goat in the mandi rice, here’s the reason; i like gamey food and my sisters and my mother didn’t, eversince the junvenile lamb shoulder meat thet i’m using for this mandy rice recipe is too mild for my taste, i add some junvenile goat ribs too to balanced the gamey flavour. I guess this lamb and goat meat mandi rice is some sort of win- win situation.

If you wanted too, you can dig some hole in the ground for making the authentic version of mandi rice, considered it as a work out; but i guess i had a busy clinical days lately and i’m just too lazy for that.
