Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Almond jelly

    • fairyduff on August 06, 2017

      A big favourite in our family. I make just the jelly, to add to any fruit, particularly if we're restricted to tinned fruit. I use gelatine instead of agar-agar, and also use a complete small tin of evaporated milk - no waste/leftover - and adjust the liquids accordingly. I am tempted someday to substitute other essences for the almond - just to experiment. I have rosewater essence particularly in mind.

  • Coconut bananas

    • fairyduff on April 28, 2019

      Very popular with the kids, who have now learnt to make it for themselves. To coat with coconut with less mess, I place the ingredients in a lunchbox with a lid, and gently shake.

  • Indian fried fish

    • fairyduff on April 15, 2020

      Recipe is on page 251 - indexed under Seafood, but not under Fish or Fried or Indian

  • Chicken and galangal soup (Tom kha gai)

    • Dannausc on October 13, 2018

      Really easy. I doubled the recipe and served it as a main course. It’s good and flavorful, but the lime was a bit overpowering. I think it would be best eaten as a component of a larger meal.
