Pomelo Salad Recipe

Pomelo (see left)
Palm Sugar
Fish Sauce
Lime Juice
Dried Shrimps
Birds Eye Chilli
Fresh Mint

First pound the garlic in a pestle and mortar, add palm sugar, lime juice, fish sauce and chilli slices, pund up together to make the dressing. Add some dried shrimps and pound a little. Peel the pomelo and shred segments into a bowl. Pour the dressing over the pomelo. Get some plain shelled peanuts and either grill them or heat in a pan with no oil until brown. Crush the peanuts in the pestle and mortar and then mix into sald. Chop or shred the fresh mint leaves and add them to the salad. Mix up. Fresh, sweet, sour, spicy and delicious! Serve with honey roast chicken thighs and rice mmmmmmmmmmm.

Chai Tea Recipe

Sorry about the delay on this one folks! Here is Jamie's Mum's Chai Tea Recipe:

cardamom, 1 stick cinnamon, 2 or 3 cloves, 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger, tea, 2 sprigs mint, milk, water
1) boil the cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger then add the mint

2) heat two cups of milk separately (or one cup of milk and one of water) then add the tea leaves just before boiling

3) bring the tea to the boil and add the spiced juices plus sugar to taste.

Let the spices stand for as long as possible before adding the tea. I like to add black peppercorns for a little extra kick.

Here are a couple of links: and
