Re: EAST TIMORESE RECIPES

Oh, and I forgot!
My mom usually makes "Gado- gado", this is mixed veggies. And it's so easy to make...Just give it a try, what you need are:

Any kinds of veggies like cucumber, carrot (cook it until it's tender), lettuce, bean sprout, potato (also cook until tender), tofu (fried it first), and eggs (cooked it, then cut it into 6 pieces)

For the peanut sauce, you'll need:
100 gr peanut (fry them without using oil until it's kinda brownish)
2 garlic
1-2 chilli
1 tbs palm sugar
1 tsp fish paste (if there's an Indonesian market in your town, ask for "terasi")
salt
2 cm galiangale

How to make the peanut sauce:
1. Put the peanut sauce ingredients into food processor until it is smooth, and then add tamarind water and a little bit of water. The sauce has to be thick enough, so don't add to much water. Then add a little bit of soy sauce (or "kecap manis") to make the colour nicer.
2. Mix it with your veggies.
3. Voila, it's done!

Re: EAST TIMORESE RECIPES

I think a rice or noodle based dish would likely be in order here, nothing too extravagant as we are looking at a situation where food is scarce for many of the population.

Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng, Indonesian fried rice. This dish can be enjoyed by itself or as the basis of a larger meal, for example with a rijsttafel. It is very easy to make and won't take more than 20 minutes to prepare.
Ingredients:

350 gr. Long Grain Rice
2 Tbs. Vegetable Oil
3 Eggs
1 Onion
2 Green Chillis, Sambal Ulek or Sambal Badjak.
1 Garlic Clove
1 Leek
1 teaspoon Ground Coriander
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
250 gr. Chicken meat
250 gr. Shelled Prawns
3 Tbs. Kecap Manis
Preparation:

This dish is best made from cold leftover rice, but you can cook a fresh batch and leave it to cool for at least 4 hours.
Beat the eggs and make into a omelette, slice into strips and set aside.
Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the chopped onion, leek, garlic and chillis. Fry until the onion is soft. Add the Coriander and Cumin. Slice Chicken into strips and add with the prawns to the onion mixture and cook, stirring occasionally until they are well mixed. Add the rice, soya sauce and omelet strips and cook for a further 5 minutes.Decorate with some of the leftover leek and serve hot.

Bami Goreng

Fried egg noodles. Favourite Lunch or light Supper dish
Ingredients:

350 gr. Medium Egg noodles
100 gr. Diced Pork Fillet
50 gr. Small Prawns
1 medium Onion
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 Carrot
1 Small Leek
2 tsp. Sambal ulek
1 tsp. Trassi (shrimp paste)
3 tbs. Kecap Manis
3 tbs. Oil
Pepper & Salt
Preparation:

Boil the noodles, using the instructions on the packet. Rinse and set aside.
Heat your wok and add the oil. Stir-fry the diced Onion and Garlic for 1 min. Add the meat, prawns, trassi and sambal ulek and fry for a further 3 min.Add the finely sliced carrots and leek and fry for 4 more min. Add the Noodles and Kecap Manis.
Use pepper and salt as needed and stir-fry for a further 4 min.
Serve hot. Delicious with Hot Peanut sauce.
