Coconut Grits Dumplings


The past weeks have not been easy on me thus there was no posts from me. I feel terrible about it but probably due to stressing I was just simply out of inspiration. Even today, when I came home to my parents' I had no idea what to make that would cut it to make it on the blog. 
Cooking and baking just weren't a priority lately. I missed it but every time I finally started to make something, nothing turned out any good! Has it ever occurred to anyone that even if you paid attention, you just messed everything up? Well, that just took all my joy away so I just kinda stopped doing it. 



It's not like I didn't cook anything but nothing were just phenomenal to post about, you know? Until today! I've been eyeing this recipe since I first saw it but I just never got to it. Too bad! Because these dumplings are just ridiculously easy to make and ohhh my gosh sooo good!! I'm not exaggerating, they are really really delicious! The base is a very simple grits porridge that is made with coconut milk instead of regular. The coconut milk makes all the difference! At first, I only substituted because we don't tolerate regular milk very well but then after tasting it, it is SO much better! It gives such a full flavor that it gives a whole new dimension to the simple porridge. And after it's cooked, you just cut a tablespoon-ful and coat it in toasted bread crumbs. To make it even better, have some homemade apricot or strawberry jam with it. Amazing!

Coconut Grits Dumplings
makes for 3 people

1 can coconut milk - 400 grams
1/2 cup grits - 85 grams
1/4 cup brown cane sugar - 50 grams
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoon butter - 25 grams
1 cup bread crumbs - about 100 grams
a few tablespoons fruit jam

Bring the coconut milk, sugar, vanilla and salt to a boil over low heat. Add in the grits and continuously stirring, cook it for about 8 minutes until it's thick. Place it in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Melt the butter in a pan. Add the bread crumbs and toast it for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Stir it occasionally. 

To make the dumpling, cut a small bit from the grits using a tablespoon.


Shape the dumpling with the help of another tablespoon and place it in the bread crumbs. 


Dip it evenly in the crumbs.


And that's it! Keep doing the same thing with the remaining grits. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top and serve it with some jam. Enjoy :)

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Pad Thai

I feel so bad about not posting anything for weeks. I have my excuses. But who likes hearing about excuses? Not me! So probably no one else, either.  Although I'd like to share that I have finished writing my thesis! I wrote about the crises' of South Asia. It was such a drag...I had a serious writer's block going on and I procrastinated so much that in the end I had 2 weeks left to write the whole thing. I basically did nothing besides writing, eating and sleeping. Exciting life, huh? Now that it's over, I've got even more scholar stuffs to do than before! But I'll be graduating in 2 months, if all goes well...So that's worth all the hard work, right? :)
But enough about me and let's talk about these noodles! I do not think there's one person who wouldn't like pad thai! Even those who swear not to eat any weird looking asian food, like my Grandma, will like this meal after having one bite! It is an authentic thai recipe, due to my Mom went to a Th…
