Chicken Biryani

About a year ago i went somewhere and they where cooking a food called Chicken Biryani, the way they where cooking it seemed so complecated and even though i loved it and found a few recipes on the net for it i never made it.

The other day i was looking at some recipes and i found one called Cheat's Chicken Biryani, i made it last night and it was so yummy.

I have some to give to a friend of mine, and i am going to give some to a neighbour for her to try, if she likes it she will make it for her family

Anyhow this is the recipe

1½ cups basmati rice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, finely sliced
4 chicken breasts (about 600g), cut into 2cm cubes
540g jar of mild korma simmer sauce (I used Pataks)
¼ cup currants or sultanas
¼ cup slivered almonds, toasted
¼ cup roughly chopped coriander leaves (optional)
Pappadums (gluten-free), to serve

Boil or steam the rice until cooked, drain and set aside.

Heat the oil in a large frypan over medium heat; add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes or until softened.

Add the chicken and cook for about 3 minutes until golden brown on all sides.

Pour in the korma sauce and currants, mix well, then reduce heat to very low and simmer for 15 minutes.

Stir in the rice and heat through.

Transfer to a large serving dish and sprinkle with almonds and coriander leaves (if using).

Place in the middle of the table with the pappadums and let everyone help themselves.

I didnt use the pappadums using lebanese bread instead

I got the recipe from this great site for childrens food Kidspot.com.au
Go check it out you might find something on there that you will like

Couldnt move my car

Yesterday i woke and as it was Sunday i played around on the computer for a little bit, had a shower and went outside to go and buy the one newspaper i buy one newspaper per week...

What should happen, there is a car in the driveway..........i cant get me car out grrrrr

I knocked on the door of the person who lives below me and got no response, his mother lives next door, so i went to her place and she wasent home as well.

So i went to another neighbours and asked if she had any phone numbers so could get the car moved, my friend rang the guys mother who said she would be back soon.

The mother returned and she rang her son who didnt answer the phone, but her daughter did who was with the son, after listening in a bit, i heard well its her fault...........im thinking WTF how is it my fault. I ask the mother what was said and she told me the daughter said "why does she need to go out".

It seems they where at Bankstown and said they would return in an hour, which i didnt agree with and it seems the mother didnt either

The mother then asked me what i needed to do and offered me her car to drive, so of i went and got my newspaper and something to eat.

A few minutes after i got home the people got home and moved the car, i said to the daughter how her mum let me use the car so i was able to get what i wanted.

I then turned around to the person who's car it was and said to her to not park in the driveway, she mouthed something back at me, i then turned around and said "Hello its a driveway, a driveway you do know what one of them is dont you".........

One of her friends that was with her said hey dont pick on her she had to go see someone in hospital, i turned around and said hey there is a front yard she can park there, there is the street she can park there,...............the guy carried on for a bit till i told him that it was not the first time she had parked her car there that she parks her car there at night, and it is damn lucky i dont need to go out............

I then walked away and went over to my friends house for awhile.

From now on, i will be parking my car out on the front lawn, the guy downstairs will probably say something asking me to not park there, but i dont care anymore.......i am so sick of his friends parking wherever they want too.

Its my yard as well, and i think i have been nice long enough, time to do what i want to do.

Poem i wrote a few weeks ago

Im gonna be busy the next week or so putting together the usual newsletter i do, plus other things people want done, so ive put in this poem as i havent written anything in this blog lately
The stars that twinkle in the sky
show the voices of passing by
a rapture shown juicy and bright
showing upwards
with speed of light
journeys end
or seldom do
and show a future
all bright and blue

Annoyed with a person

Where i work during the day there are alot of Volunteer workers, there are more Volunteers than workers and if it wasent for the Volunteers the place wouldnt run as it does. There has been 4 managers since ive been there and the Volunteers have been able to help the new Manager know how the place works.

The new manager has decided to give food tickets for the volunters so they can get something nice and healthy to eat at a place called New Horizons Cafe which helps people who are mentally a little slow, they learn how to work in a kitchen are given a certificate after 6 months training in hopes they can get a job somewhere else or stay working there.

This one person today i felt so angry with him as his first comment was, why are the volunters getting food vouchers, its a waste of money and the money should go towards helping people. I told him how the Cafe is run , he then carried on a bit more with it saying how the Australian Government wastes money, how is the Cafe a waste of money as it is helping people.

His next comment about the volunter's not getting the vouvhers was that the volunters could buy their own food, the people who do volunter work there are on pensions and to buy something healthy to eat is very expensive, and that by giving the person the voucher to buy healthy food it is helping the government in hopes people will enjoy to eat healthy food and in the long run that will help the health system and save money, he didnt like this comment either.

He then told me he is on a pension as he has a bad back, and i said how maybe a few days a week he could work, his comment was why should i work and as he is 48 he should be allowed to enjoy the rest of his life and how he could die tomorrow. I turned around and said yes and i could die tomorrow as well, but i dont sit around doing nothing, he continued on about his bad back which by this time i wanted to slap him so badly, and if his back is so bad how come he has been around all day doing nothing, he could be sitting somewhere doing some work he just glared at me and someone else was trying to get him not annoyed at this stage by joking with him.

But gawd i really hate people like that, here he is saying we should do something for the youth.

To me if you want to do something for the youth show that it is good to work and what you can get when you work, not live like this jerk was..

Ok ive had my rant now but i still wanna slap him so hard

Spinach Lasanga

I made Spinach Lasanga, cause i love eating spinach.

I found a recipe on the net and thought it sounded pretty easy to make and as i wouldnt have much time when i got home today i made the white sauce and the spinach filling yesterday.
So today i just had to put it all together and bake it.

It worked out great and it tasted ok, but i found it a little bland, which as i was making it im thinking hmm bland.

Usually when i make food i make loads of it and then i put it in the freezer to eat another day, but not today, i have put aside enough so that i could have some for tomorrow night and not have to cook, but i dont really want the rest of it.

My friends are are gonna love me as i have put some in containers and im going to give them the Lasanga tomorrow.

No pictures as i didnt think about it writing about it till now heheh

Kuta Beach Boys

I was reading on the net the other day about how some Kuta beach boys where rounded up and taken to by the Bali Police..

I dont see what the big problem is with the men talking to the women on the beach. Sure i know there is more to it than that, but if it was women would there be such a problem.

What about the documentary that was done a few years ago called My Boyfriend the Sex Tourist.
Men went there for a holiday and have a girlfriend experience for however long they where there, in other words they got to choose a prostitute from a line up of girls that showed up when the tourist got there.

What are the men doing any different, the men are offering their companionship if it turns into sex well it does, but the women arent going there and making all the men line up and choosing one of them, it is up to the man if he chooses to and the women if she chooses too.

What im talking about is The documentary, "Cowboys in Paradise" by Singapore-based writer and director Amit Virmani.

Officials are saying that the candid interviews with the local men who flirt with and seduce foreign tourists has severely tarnished the resort island's image.
"All they did was speak honestly about their lives. No one should be harmed for that," he said.

The film maker said "I wanted to understand the men behind the cowboy myth. People never got past looking at them as gigolos. That's so one dimensional. I wanted to know why they are so appealing to women? What are their relationships like?... I wanted to humanise them.

An American woman tourist interviewed said the beach boys just "love to have fun".

"The women that come... what they're feeling is that these people feel safe to them and they love to have fun. They'll get out and sing and dance and joke and they'll include you in everything," she said.

So what are these men doing wrong, would they have been treated differently if they where women?
