Egg in a cloud

Sumita Boudi had shared a link to this recipe on facebook  .. Am unable to locate the link unfortunately, to give due credit ... 

Separate egg white and yolk. Beat the egg white till they form peaks. 

Place a spoonful on baking paper.

Bake in a preheated oven at 200 deg C for three minutes. 
Gently place the yolk in the middle and bake for another three minutes for a runny yolk and five minutes for a firm yolk.

While I sprinkled salt and pepper towards the end , the original recipes calls for finely cut chives and cheese to be gently added to the beaten egg white . Very easy in terms of preparation , uses no oil, looks good and tastes good ! Bon Appetit!

Goanese Cafreal Chicken

Weekend calling ... Goanese Cafreal Chicken.. 

Grind to a paste coriander leaves, spring onion ( leaf and all) , ginger, garlic, coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, 2 tspns sugar, salt to taste, garam masala ( cloves , cinnamon , don't cringe but I added cardamom too) , green chillies in 4 teaspoons red wine vinegar. Marinate chicken in it . Heat oil in pan and fry onions in it and keep it aside. Add a little more oil and add the chicken pieces with the marinade. I cooked both sides of the chicken on high flame for around five minutes. Then lowered the heat , covered the pan and cooked it for another twelve minutes . Added the fried onions , couldn't get myself to add a dollop of butter. Mixed the onions and the cooked chicken . This is supposed to be a dry preparation . It is a lovely combination of the heat of the chillies, the sweetness of sugar , and the tartness of vinegar .. Bon appetit! It went very well with pita bread stuffed with salad ... 😊😊
