    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #166 STIR FRY Stir fries are one of the easiest meals to make. Stir fry literally means cooking tender vegetables or meat,  blanched vegetables, or boiled vegetables and meat in a small quantity of oil over high heat. This results in the vegetables becoming a bit crunchy and most of the nutrients is preserved. While some vegetables are easy to stir fry some need to be blanched for a while. What is blanching? Blanching is a cooking method where vegetables or fruits are added to boiling water, allowed to cook for a short time, removed from the hot water and immediately dipped in ice cold water.

    Thank you Nami    2 weeks ago my daughter Nami sent me a recipe for pineapple salsa. As soon as I got some sweet fresh pineapple, I had to try out the recipe. It turned out very well, though I had to make a slight change from the original recipe sent to me from the savouryandsweet blog by her. I couldn’t  find any jalapenos so I replaced it with chilli flakes. Try the recipe out and use it as a starter with taco chips or normal potato crisps(chips) or crispy pita bread. Use tinned pineapples if you don’t get fresh ones. The sweetness from the pineapples, chilliness from the chilli flakes and sourness from the lemon will definitely  play music on your tongue. updated 24/02/2016…
