Accidental Recipe.

I made a mistake with my cooking and I thought that was an embarrassing and terrible moment, but wait! As you know, It could be a moment you could create a new recipe if you use your sense of creativity!

Alright fellas, this is the story. That night I was so so damn tired reached flat at 9pm after a looong day but at the same time my tummy wanted a fill up. I had the urge to make something a bit special and so I chose to make meat ball soup. I searched through my kitchen to find ingredients that I needed to make my desired recipe.

I found beef meat and eggs in my fridge, flour and spices on my spice shelf. I used my blender to mince the beef, put the minced meat in a bowl with 3 eggs and kneaded the mixture. Then I added my spices – salt, white ground pepper, minced garlic, pinch of sugar for taste, and coriander as well. Then, I poured water into it. It seemed to be going fine, but then, I had this scary feeling that I might have added more water than I should have. Damn! my meat dough was too watery, soft. In my panic I decided that I had to put more maize or starch in my ‘too-soft’ dough and wished that it would make it all better.

But I was unlucky. My dough was still soft even after I added so much starch. I decided to go ahead and start molding my dough using 2 spoons and put them into pan full of boiling water. I wished that the meat balls would be floating after 5 until 10 minutes – a good sign that they are well done. Needless to say, I was disappointed when I saw that meat balls didn’t float. Then I decided not to give up and I chose to put my meat ball dough in the fridge overnight. But I still had 1 loud question in my head, how about my tummy? There was nothing I could do at this point, so I went to bedroom hungry. I was so upset really.

So, the next day, when I opened fridge, I saw my meat ball dough, and was still thinking of cooking again. While my dough became harder after being chilled, I took my pan, poured vegetable oil and Yes! I did! I fried the meat balls!!! And you know what? I tasted them, and seriously, they were really good. What a delightful surprise!

Then I remembered that I had tofu, chicken fillet, and paprikas. Without thinking twice I took garlic, onion, chillies, the basic spices I always for cook with. Then:

Step to step!

Step to step!

The last thing I did, paprikas! Lovely colors!

The last thing I did, paprikas! Lovely colors!

;

* I poured some vegetable oil about two tablespoons and let it heat up enough so I could stir-fry my basic spices. Onion and garlic first, then, I added chillies. I stir fried for just 5 minutes – my basic spices smelled good. Then I stirred in the chillies and let them fry for 2 minutes.

* I added cubes of tofu and stir-fried for 3-5 minutes, poured in 2 tablespoon of tomato sauce, 1 tablespoon of chilli sauce, and small water.

* Next step? I added black pepper, salt, pinch of sugar for sure *wink* my little secret*, and nutmeg.

* I fried chicken fillet before and I added them along with the fried meat balls. I let them mix for about 5 minutes and then I added soya sauce – put as much as you like. And for more flavour and colour, I cut some paprikas. I made sure I reduced the heat on my pan of meat balls while I was cutting the paprika. I didnt want my sauce to get dry. The last thing I did was spinkle some paprika to give more spicylicious taste and because I love red and orange colour of paprika.

Tarra! Feast your eyes on this accidental but perfect recipe on my sushi plate. I thought it would be prettier if I had sesame seeds and fresh leeks sprinkled on top of my freshly cooked meal.

Nyum nyum nyum, spicylicious!

Nyum nyum nyum, spicylicious!
