Poaching Made Easy

20120430-042140 PM.jpg

This is the easiest poaching method I ever tried. All you need to do is get the egg poachies from home selection at arraya complex and follow the instructions:

1. Place a poachie in a cup or a mug, and break the egg inside

2. Place the poachie immediately in the simmering water and wait for 6 minutes

3. Take it off the heat and let it dry out a bit then gently shake the pouch till the egg comes out. Place it on a bun and enjoy eating it :)

Mine was toasted bread, a lil bit of Dijon mustard, turkey slices, the poached egg of course and then topped with sriracha sauce which is my current obsession :)

bon appetit!

Preserved Lemons – أچار الليمون

This is the easiest lemon preserve ever. All you need is a sterile jar, coarse salt, a knife and lemons.

Start with cleaning the lemons by brushing them then cutting the lemons the same way I did and sprinkling some salt inside the cuts

أول شي تغسلون الليمون عدل و تفرشونه بفرشة بعدين تقصون الليمونة مثل الصورة و ترشون ملح داخل الليمون

Then try to fit as much lemons as you can in the jar, the cut side facing down or tilted downwards. Press the lemons to fit more lemons in the jar. They will reduce in size with time.

و بعدين صفوا الليمون داخل القرشة و يكون الطرف المقصوص مواجه تحت عشان ينزل العصير. حاولوا تضغطون الليمون و تحطون ليمون بالقرشة كثر ما تقدرون لان حجمهم راح يصغر مع الوقت

Sprinkle some salt on top of the jar when you’re done and close it. Leave it be for 3-5 days and then see if the juices from the lemons have covered the lemons. If not, add lemon juice till it covers the lemons.

و لمى تصفون كل الليمون و تخلصون رشوا ملح فوق اخر شي و سكروا القرشة و خلوها لمدة ٣-٥ ايام. بعدين شوفوا اذا العصير اللي نزل من الليمون مغطي الليمون خلوه. و اذا مو مغطي الليمون، زيدوه عصير.

There’s another way of doing this. You can mix garlic and chili flakes with the salt and use it like I mentioned above.

تقدرون بعد تضيفون ثوم و فلفل على الملح و تستخدمونه نفس الطريقة اللي كتبتها.

Leave the jars for 3-4 weeks then consume them the way you like. You can add them to sandwiches, use as condiment with rice, cook with them. Their uses are endless :)

خلوه لمدة ٣-٤ اسابيع يستوي بروحه و بعدين تقدرون تستخدمونه بالطريقة اللي تبونها. بالساندويتشات، مع العيش، بالطبخ. كل شي :)

تاكدوا ان القرشة نظيفة عدل قبل لا تبدون. و بالعافية

I’ll be updating you with pictures when they’re ready.

Bon appetit!
