When's Dinner?

Hmmm. Pic not available for some reason.

Tonight for dinner I'm having Korean Chicken Patties and Kohlrabi Salad from Vietnam. Both come from Madhur Jaffrey's Step-by-Step Cooking which is one of my favorite cookbooks.

For the chicken I use Smart Chicken which is air chilled and all organic. You should try it - it's the best chicken ever. I had Central Market grind it for me. To that you add sliced green onions, sesame oil, soy sauce, roasted sesame seeds and a little chili powder. You mix the ingredients together and fry in a little vegetable oil. It's served with Korean Dipping Sauce. I can't wait to eat this.

The salad is really easy - you chop kohlrabi and a carrot into little matchsticks, put them in a bowl with some salt and let them sweat for a while. After you squeeze all the moisture out, you add vinegar, sugar, chili powder, chopped mint and chopped cilantro. It's topped with chopped roasted peanuts! It has a crunchy nutty flavor that I love.

I'll update this with the recipes if I can get permission.

Enjoy!
