I posted a Sri Lankan Curry a few weeks ago and mentioned that what I love most is the cultural diversity in my office. We have colleagues from different areas of the world; Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, Sierra Leon, Liberia, Pakistan, US, France, Japan etcetc, it’s a great selection, I just wish I could convince each one of them to teach me just one dish. That would make a good series for this blog.
Last year my colleague Tomoko, from Japan (she is the one who taught us how to make teriyaki and Karage chicken remember?) suggested that we should make Chinnesedumplisngs, we never got round to it and she again reminded me a few weeks ago, by then Sampathi, from Sri Lanka, had also said she could teach me how to make another dish. I thought it was best to have this two done togather and thus Asian Night was born, we invied most of the ladies in our office and ended up with a mini cooking class. It was very interesting but as usual like in any other class there were students like Liz who were not paying attention who kept coming to ask me what was going on and a few others who came to ask me for my notes at the end of the lesson, it was like Uni all over again.
Apart from the cooking we also did a lot of catching up, photo taking and of course drinking. We had a good time and I hope we’ll do this again soon. The pictures of the night and the recipe follow. HAPPY COOKING!!
Now the recipe ( step by step picture instructions then the recipe), HAPPY COOKING!!
