Rotis-Bread

Ingredients
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup water
1 egg
1 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter, melted

Method
In a bowl, combine water, egg, condensed milk, sugar, and salt. Mix well. Set aside.

Sift the flour into a large bowl, and form a crater in the sifted flour. Pour the water/egg mixture into the flour, and mix well. Add melted butter. Knead this until the bowl is clean and you have a nice ball of dough. Lightly coat the dough ball with vegetable oil (we like canola oil). Let it sit for 30 minutes.

Next, knead your dough a bit more, and form it into several balls (about double the size of a golf ball). Coat them with vegetable oil.

Roll a ball of dough flat with a rolling pin, then cut from center out to edge. Roll it up as shown in pictures below. Push it in with your finger. Repeat this a few times.

Now roll the dough ball into a very flat square sheet, coat it with a bit more oil, pick it up and place it on a hot (highest setting) pancake griddle that has melted margarine on it. You can use a skillet also, but we found that our electric pancake griddle works great. Add a bit more margarine and watch your roti become a delicious little masterpiece. It only takes a minute or two. Flip it over. Watch the video below for guidance on how to add fruit, egg, raisins, condensed milk, whatever. We really like to add condensed milk. Enjoy this recipe! It's a lot of fun, and very tasty.

Thai Prawn Soup with Lemon Grass - Tom Yum Goong

20 prawns (shrimp), medium size
4-5 cups chicken broth/soup stock
2 stalks fresh lemongrass, lightly pounded, cut into 1 inch long segments
4 table spoons fish sauce
1/3 cup sliced fresh galangal
1/2 cup straw mushroom, halved or whole
6-8 kaffir lime leaves, shredded
4 tablespoons lime juice
6 crushed fresh Thai chile peppers (or more to suit your taste)
2 tablespoons "prik pao" roasted chile in oil
Fresh cilantro for garnish

Method

Wash the prawns and shell them without removing the tails. Bring chicken broth to a boil. Add lemongrass, galangal and lime leaves. Bring back to a boil then add mushrooms, fish sauce, prik pao and lime juice. Add prawns and fresh chile peppers. As soon as prawns turn pink (cooked through) serve garnished with cilantro.

Note that a rather simple and effective way to make this dish is with a ready-made tom yum paste. ImportFood.com has two options for you. We recommend you order our Instant Tom Yum Paste, imported from Thailand and a very good quality product. Add two tablespoons Tom Yum Paste to three cups boiling water, add 1.5 teaspoons salt, add mushrooms and prawns, add 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, add 5-7 Thai chile peppers and onions, and serve garnished with cilantro.

An alternative to Tom Yum Paste is our Tom Yum Spice Mix which you can use to make the above soup. Both alternatives also add fragrant, delicious Tom Yum flavor to just about any kind of noodles, and both are quite popular in creating "fusion" type Pan-Asian foods blending Thai and western foods.

To make dip: In a food processor with knife blade attached, mince garlic. Add mangoes, lime zest, lime juice, vinegar, Tabasco sauce, salt, and pepper. Process until very smooth. Add mint and pulse once or twice, just to combine. Pour into a bowl and cover; refrigerate until serving.

To make shrimp: Line 2 cookie sheets with waxed paper or plastic wrap. In a large bowl, whisk rice flour, all-purpose flour, and salt to combine. Add club soda and whisk until smooth. Mixture should have consistency of pancake batter; add more club soda if necessary. Spread coconut on a plate. Pat shrimp dry with paper towels; add to batter and toss to coat. Remove shrimp from batter one at a time, letting excess drip off. Dredge in coconut. Place on prepared cookie sheets. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate while oil heats, or up to 4 hours.

Pour oil into an 8-quart heavy-bottom pot. Heat over medium-low heat until temperature reaches 350 degrees on a deep-fat thermometer. Carefully drop shrimp into oil, about 8 at a time and fry until golden brown and just cooked through, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels, skimming coconut from oil between batches. Serve hot with dip.

Thai Chicken Soup with Coconut Milk-Tom Kha Gai

This is a mild but spicy chicken soup (it can also be made with shrimp, pork, beef or mushrooms),
flavored with the very unique flavor of galangal ("kha" in Thai) which creates a heavenly taste
when combined with hot chile peppers, coconut milk, lime leaves and lemongrass. See our new
Tom Kha Salmon recipe made by the Prime Minister of Thailand.

Ingredients

16 fluid ounces soup broth (chicken stock)
4-5 kaffir lime leaves, shredded
4 or 5 2 inch pieces fresh lemongrass, bruised to release flavor
1 inch cube (or a bit more) galangal sliced thinly.
4 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice
4 oz chicken breast cut into smallish bite sized pieces
5 fluid ounces coconut milk
small red Thai chile peppers, slightly crushed (to taste)
coriander (cilantro) leaves to garnish.

Note the number of red peppers is a personal choice. It can be as few as half a chilli per diner, to
as many as 8-10 per diner, but the dish should retain a balance of flavors and not be overwhelmend
by the chili peppers. We suggest about 8-12 chili peppers for this recipe.

Method

Heat the stock, add the lime leaves, lemongrass, galangal, fish sauce, and lime juice. Stir thoroughly,
bring to a boil, and add the chicken and coconut milk, then the chile peppers. Bring back to the boil,
lower the heat to keep it simmering and cook for about 2 minutes (until the chicken is cooked through).
Enjoy!

Not really intended to be eaten as a separate course, we like it served ladled over a bowl of steamed
Thai jasmine rice. This quantity serves 4 with other food, but is probably only enough for two if eaten
separately.
