Faloodha at Scoop

The first term mid term break came during the last week of March. We didnt  go anywhere out of Male' City as it was just a week's break and hubby  had work.  So I decided to take my boys and my niece to check out the National Museum ( post to follow soon).  The Museum opens at 10 and we reached there a bit early so headed off to Scoop to grab something nice and cold to drink as it was a hot day.

Chicken Parcels With Mushrooms and Spinach

In Jamie Oliver's Happy days, there are some recipes which features chicken breasts cooked in foil with either cannelini beans or mushrooms. I love fresh mushrooms , but as for the rest of the family , they are not very keen on it, especially the boys. Hubby would eat it  if there is any form of meat with it.  So when I made the chicken and potato  parcels,  I made mine with mushrooms.

Rice with Sausages and Peas

        I am a big fan of Gordon Ramsay :) , my hubby calls him the  wrinkly old man but still I think  his programmes are the best. Whether he is screaming at  chefs in Hell's Kitchen or giving people a piece of his mind in Nightmare Kitchens or being extra sweet and nice on Ultimate cookery course, to me,  he  turns out a to be  a great teacher and chef. His ultimate  cookery course is a great book with great recipes and tips although I did wish it had more  illustrations of some of the  methods.This recipe is one I picked up from this book .  I used precooked sausages, not fresh since we don't get fresh over here.

Storing Curry Leaves

I use curry leaves a lot. Its  one of the main ingredients found in Maldivian cooking. In the market its usually sold in big bunches so  once I buy it  I have to find ways to store it so it stays for longer periods of time.

Chicken Breast Roasted with Potatoes and Spices

I  came across this recipe on, and at first it didnt look very appealing, yes I know I can here a few gasps . For some reason it ended up a little bland.  But the idea behind it was great especially since it involved cooking in tin foil which means less washing up.
