My BREAD DUMPLING/ FILLING/ BREAD STUFFING/ SEMMELFÜLLE/ KNÖDEL

Classic dumplings is a delicious side dish and if something remains they can be processed well, just like as filling or stuffing turkey or chicken meat, in a soup, ragout or fricassee. A versatile recipe. In german they called it “Semmelknödel”. Making of dumplings, bigger dumplings, has to do on the right composition and the corresponding proportions of constituents on the fineness and dryness of the flour, to see the freshness of eggs and enough processing of the dough.

This is the same filling which I used yesterday for our “ROASTED TURKEY BREAST IN TURBO BROILER WITH RED CABBAGE”!

It is to advise especially beginners, to insert a test dumpling in the boiling salted water or the broth every time to check how the same device, and then to see whether the dough mixture is correct; the dumpling cooking falls apart, so you need more flour or grated bread and egg yolk; is the dumpling too tight so it deals something more of the milk or water, or even a whole egg, to make it loose.

YOU NEED…….

GOOD FOR 4 PERSONS

* 1 tsp. Butter
* 2 Eggs
* 3 tsps. Flour (for forming dumplings)
* 1/2 Liter Milk
* 1 bunch Parsley, finely chopped
* some Salt
* 500g White bread cut into cubes (2 or 3 days old)
* 1/2 (half) Onion, finely chopped and lightly saute in butter

HOW TO…….

Heat the milk and pour over the bread cubes. Soak for 45 minutes.

Then add salt, finely chopped parsley, onion and eggs, knead well.

Shape dumplings with flour: well press the dough together and form balls.
20-30 Minutes (depending on size) dumplings in slightly salted water soak or cook.

APPETIZER OR PAMPAGANA

Appetizer o pampagana?… tinadtad na sibuyas, kamatis at luya ito ang mga sangkap na di ko alam kung matatawag ngang pampagana o parang ensalada. Masarap sa pinirito o inihaw na isda, karne ng baboy at iba pang pagkaing nakukuha sa dagat. Para sa aking mister timplahan ng anchovy sauce ay solve na, pang ulam na niya!
Heto naman ay ginawang pang side dish ng anak kong lalake sa lumpiang shanghai…yes nabasa ninyo ng tama sa “LUMPANG SHANGHA!”! 😛
Narito ang larawan masdan at husgahan…lol…

YOU NEED…….

* kamatis
* sibuyas
* luya
* salt to taste

HOW TO…….

* Simple lamang paghalu-haluin lahat ng mga sangkap at p’wede nang kumain.
P’weding lagyan ng siling labuyo, lalong maanghang gawa ng luya. P’wede ring lagyang ng suka o bagoong!
Timplahan nang naaayon sa inyong panlasa.

SILI AT KAMATIS (CHILI AND TOMATOES)

Sili at kamatis, napapanahon ngayong taglamig, siguro mga huling anihan na, mura ang kilo kaya minsan ay aking niluluto na katapat ng fried fish or meat. Ito ay hindi lamang kapares kundi nakakapagbigay gana sa pagkaing walang sabaw. Simple at madaling lutuin, kailangan lang ng anchovy sauce o bagoong balayan, kaunting mantika, luya at sibuyas. Igigisa lahat at titimplahan ng anchovy sauce o bagoong balayan at lalagyan ng kaunting tubig na tama lang makaluto sa sili at kamatis. Masarap na kasamang pang ulam ng fried fish o di kaya ay fried cutlet 😀

Yong siling haba ay hindi maanghang lalo na yong pula na mataba. Kung gusto ng maanghang ay may roon din. Pero mas gusto namin ang hindi maanghang. Maari ring gawing ensalada. Para sa grill meat o inihaw na isda. Sa panahon ng tag-init ng araw sa araw-araw na panahon ay panahon din ng pag-grill o ihaw-ihaw. Masarap ding kapares ng inihaw na isda o karne ang ensaladang sili at kamatis.

Ito namang maliit na sili na mapula na tawag sa Pilipinas ay “siling labuyo”, aking inilalagay sa suka na may halong nabalatan na bawang at luya. Magandang sawsawan ng inihaw o di kaya ay napritong isda o karne. Kapag napapanahon ay murang-mura ang kilo ng mga ito.
