Pastel de Choclo

Pastel de Choclo is typical Chilean dish that is quite similar in concept to a Shepherd’s pie. Instead of using mashed potato, a savoury corn mash is used. I really enjoyed eating this dish in South America, it was a really hearty, wholesome dish that celebrated their local produce. Inside the pastel de choclo, besides… Continue reading Pastel de Choclo

Margarita Chicken

Ben and I really enjoy making this recipe during the week. It is so easy to chop up all the ingredients and then marinade overnight.

I have really only made satays with chicken thigh fillets, however, I know you can make them with beef and… Continue reading Chicken Satay

Malaysian Chicken Curry Puffs a.k.a Karipap Pusing

My crimping could use some work, but it still tasted good! So let me just take a step back and explain what curry… Continue reading Malaysian Chicken Curry Puffs a.k.a Karipap Pusing
