some of green vegetable (green beans, cucumber) - cut into julienned
1 tomato - sliced
1 leek - thinly julienned
5 servings ramen noodles
1.making the dressing
In a small cooking pot, add oil (vegetable and sesame) and heat until its hot but not boiled. Let it to cool to room temperature. In a bowl, add sesame and oil, then blend with a hand blender (or with food processor) until smooth paste. Add the rest of ingredient (chicken bouillong powder, soy sauce, sugar, vinegar and water) and mix. Chill until serve.
2. For eggs, add oil to a non-stick frypan and heat over medium high heat. Wipe excess oil with kitchen paper. Pour the egg mixture, then spread the egg outward thinly like you are making crepe. Turn it over. Cook for another 10 seconds.
Repeat with the rest of egg mixture.
3. Cool the egg crepes and slice into very thin strips. Set aside.
4. For the noodles, bring a pot of water to a boil and add the noodles, cook according to package directions. Drain and rinse with a cold water to remove remove starch of ramen. Drain completely and divide the noodles on serving plate.
5. Garnish with egg, ham, cucumber/green beans, tomato and leek. Pour the dressing just before you eat.
Prepare the silicone mould (here I use a 4cm diameter * 15-hole mould). Place ice cream in each hole. Flatten the surface, using a spoon. Place in the freezer until it is frozen. I usually make this one day before I want to make mochi.
Once the ice cream is firm, start preparing the mochi mixture : In a microwave safe glass bowl, combine flour and sugar. Stir to combine. Add the water and glucose, mix with an egg beater until smooth. Cover the bowl lightly with cling wrap.
3. Microwave the mixture for 1 minute. Then stir the dough with a spatula. Put it back in the microwave again for another minute and stir lightly. Put it back in the microwave for another 30 seconds (not 1 min) and stir. And once more microwave for 30 seconds and stir. The mixture should be now very thick and translucent.
4. Transfer the mochi dough on your working surface floured with katakuriko/potato starch. As it is very hot you should use a spatula or a dough cuter. Cut the mochi into 15 equal pieces. Don't forget to coat your hand with katakuriko/potato starch.
5. With your hands, take one of these pieces and flatten it into a thick disc. Then put a frozen ice cream ball from the freezer in the middle of the mochi disc. Pull out the cream balls one at a time from the freezer as they will melt quickly. Pull the edges of the dough disc together to cover the cream ball. Press together the edges to seal well. Smoothen the mochi by rolling it on the dusted board.
6. Quickly cover with the plastic wrap and twist to close. Place each mochi ice cream into a cupcake pan or any kind of plate to keep the shape. (Top side down)
7. Put mochi ice cream back into the freezer for a few hours.
8. Keep them outside for a few minutes before you enjoy to make the mochi gets soften a little bit.
1. Add water, bread flour (and gluten, optionally), black cocoa powder, sugar, salt, glucose syrup and milk powder in the pan of your bread machine. Select dough cycle and press start as per manufacturer's instructions.
2. After 5 min add butter in the pan and add yeast in the yeast compartment.
3. When the dough cycle is complete, remove it from the machine and place on a floured surface.
4. Punch the dough down and divide it in 3 pieces. Cover them with a dry cloth. Let rest for about 15min.
5. Working with one piece at at time, use a rolling pin, roll the dough back and forth, shaping it into a flat oval. Fold it length-wise, bringing both sides onto the centerline. Then roll it up. Place the shaped dough, seam side down, in a greased loaf pan. Repeat with the other dough balls, placing another in the center, and the last one at the other end of the pan.
Cover and let rise for 40~60min or until the dough rises to 85~90% of the square pan height.
6. Preheat the oven to 190℃. Cover the pan with a lid and bake for 30 minutes.
7. Unmold and transfer the bread to a cooling rack. Wait till it completely cools down before slicing.
1. In a wok or skillet, heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil and fry garlic until fragrant. Add onion, red onion, carrot and cook, finally add ground beef, continue stir-frying until the meat is no longer pink.
2. Add "seasoning" ingredients (cooking sake, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, honey, ketchup, tomato paste, kosher salt, curry powder, paprika powder). Stir for another 3~5min over low heat. Then add green bell pepper. Cook for another few minutes.
3. Add mustard and sugar. Stir well.
4. Serve with hot steamed rice, top with an egg over the rice.
1. In a heat-safe bowl, add rice flour, sugar, grated parmesan and salt. Mix well.
2. Slowly pour the boiled water, using a cooking scale to help you add the right quantity. Mix with a silicone spatula until it comes together.
3. Add the steamed rice (microwave it for 30 sec at 600W if it was frozen) and sesame. Knead with your hand (or a spatula) until well combined. Pre-heat the oven to 200℃.
4. Spoon some rice mixture (about 1 to 2 tbsp) and make it into a ball, then flatten it with your hand. Make it even thinner, using your fingers. Place on a baking sheet on an oven tray. Repeat until you have used up all the rice mixture.
NOTE : a thinner senbei will be crispier.
5. In a small bowl, add the dipping ingredients (soy sauce, mirin and sugar) and mix. Set aside.
6. Bake senbei 10 min, pull it out from the oven once and flip them all once. Brush the dipping sauce from #5 onto each senbei and sprinkle some nori over the sauce.
7. Then put it back to the oven and bake for another 10 min.
