DSC_0021 copy

Hello Everyone 

Happy 150th Canada !!!

My home for past 6 years is 150 years young now.  I have a lot of fond memories about this place . I found out my passion for cooking , photography and brought back my passion for sining in my life . I am always thankful about all these little things in my life, to honour those am bringing a recipe for you all 

I thought of writing a very simple recipe which you can use it for todays BBQ . Yes we love our BBQ and during this day in particular. I am bringing you all grilled corn in 2 ways , one with a spicy tomatillo salsa and a simple lemon butter . A very simple recipe , easy to make , crowd pleaser as well as a very kid friendly dish. I don’t have many things to say about the recipe because its such an easy recipe. But you must be wondering what is a Tomatillo, it is a Mexican Green tomato which is really tart and used in making various salsa, sauces and dishes. I have attached a picture of some home grown fresh Tomatillo.

Let’s get into the recipe then . 

First I will write the tomatillo salsa recipe , then the grilling techniques and will leave in the notes how to make the lemon butter .

Ingredients
  1. Whole Corn - 4
  2. Tomatillo Salsa - 3 to 4 tablespoons (Recipe is written Separate )
  3. Lemon Butter - as required for flavouring (Recipe in notes)
Instructions
  1. 1. Heat your grill according to the instructions , I most certainly prefer a charcoal grill for the best flavour but you can also use the regular propane one for this .
  2. 2. Place the husked corn on the hot grill , brush some oil on top and grill it for 15 minutes by turning sides or till it is slightly charred like in the picture .
  3. 3. Spoon the salsa or the lemony butter on top off the corn and enjoy it hot
Lemony Butter
  1. 1. Bring the butter to room temperature first , it should be soft enough to whip it.
  2. 2. My ratio was 1/4 cup butter , half lemon juice and little salt you can change it according to your preference .
  3. 3. Using a hand held beater whip butter , lemon juice and salt thats it .

Thai Flavoured Sweet potato & Coconut Soup

Sweet potato 1

 

Hello Everyone 

Since it is still cold  & grey all around at this part of the world  I would like to bring you all a soup recipe to warm your heart & body . A soul soothing and heart warming soup made from sweet potatoes with thai inspired flavours and then thinned out with some delicious coconut milk . So when I said thai flavours you must be thinking is this going to be vegetarian or does it have some hidden ingredients which are not vegetarian . But the good news is this soup is not only vegetarian but also vegan so it’s suitable if you have any kind of lactose intolerance or allergies . 
This soup is made from real & simple ingredients without any additives or colours added extra . The flavour is from all  natural ingredients and cooked with a lot of love . Most of the thai dishes does use palm sugar to finish the dishes , so the sweetness of the sweet potatoes really complements with the other bold flavours in the soup .  Also it is super filling you actually don’t need to serve it with any kind of bread , just a slightly tossed spinach salad would really go with the soup , but if you wanna thick crusty bread oh yeah go for it. 

Oh another thing I want to tell you is this soup was made in a very very easy method made in my favourite gadget called Instapot . Dont worry people if you dont have an instapot , you can always use a pressure cooker or even just a stove top sauce pan would also work . Only difference on a sauce pan it would take longer but in a pressure cooker it would faster , but in the instapot it will be done in a jiffy , isn’t that cool ? LOL 

I think I should explain to you how to make the soup now , instead of boring you with all these stuff LOL

For the Thai paste
  1. Thai Chilles - 2 or 3 (more if you want it hurt your a@$ LOL)
  2. Lemon Grass- chopped 1 tablespoon
  3. Onion - 3 to 4 shallots / 2 tablespoon chopped yellow onions
  4. Galangal- 1 inch piece
  5. Cilantro Stalks- 1/2 tablespoon (You can use the leaves for the soup)
For the soup
  1. Onions - half of a medium sized onion chopped finely
  2. Garlic- 3 cloves chopped finely
  3. Sweet Potatoes - 2 medium sized cubed
  4. Kaffir Lime leaves - 7 no
  5. Cilantro leaves - finely chopped 1/2 tablespoon
  6. Paprika - 1/4 teaspoon
  7. Salt - as needed
  8. Lime Juice - 2 to 3 tablespoons
  9. Coconut Oil - 1/2 tablespoon
  10. Water- 3 to 4 cups
  11. Coconut milk - 1/2 cup
Instructions
  1. 1. In a blender place all the ingredients for the thai paste with little water and blend it till smooth like really smooth . You can also use some thin coconut milk to blend the paste .
  2. 2. I will be explaining the method of making the soup in the Instapot here and will give the press cooker & stove top options in the notes
  3. 3. In the Instapot turn on the saute mode when the pot is hot add oil then add onions , garlic to it saute for 30 seconds .
  4. 4. Now add sweet potatoes , 2 tablespoons of the thai paste feel free to add more if you want it spicy .Add all the ingredients for the soup except the lime juice and coconut milk to the pot .
  5. 5. Cancel the Saute mode turn on manual , close the lid and 5 minutes on manual .
  6. 6. When the five minutes is up wait till the pressure releases naturally , open the lid then cool it little bit and puree it smoothly in a blender .
  7. 7. Now put back this puree into the instapot back , turn on saute mode add lime juice and coconut milk mix it add salt if required .
  8. 8. Turn off and garnish with cilantro leaves and serve hot .
Notes
  1. 1.So if you dont have an Instapot do not worry amigo , you can use a pressure cooker . If you are using a pressure cooker its the same method but it will take a bit longer to cook and naturally release the pressure.
  2. 2. What if you dont have a pressure cooker either , no worries mate a good old sauce pan would do the charm but the cooking time will be like 20 minutes .. And you may need to watch it closely to avoid any kind of mishaps
