Pad Thai once again


Remember the last time I made pad thai? No? Then, check it out! I used almost the same recipe now, the only difference I made is that I substituted the carrot to a red bell pepper and I added a whole bunch of cilantro on top!
Because cilantro is actually one of the best things that could happen to your food! :)
It doesn't only have a wonderful taste, it also gives a lot of health benefits to those who consume the herb. It is said that it may reduce blood sugar, it is antioxidant and very rich in magnesium and iron. 
Lately, I eat a lot of nasi goreng (Indonesian fried rice) and I add pretty much a more than normal amount of chopped cilantro on top and it gives the best taste to it. I just can't get over how amazing a kick it gives to any food...
So go ahead and buy some and transform an ordinary dish to extraordinary ;)

And I'll give you the recipe now :)

Pad Thai
serves 4

160 grams rice noodles, soak in cold water for 20 minutes (for an extra flavor, add some sugar in the water)
1 cup soy bean sprouts
100 grams chicken, cut into small pieces
2 eggs
1 red bell pepper, sliced into very thin 
5 tablespoons coarsely chopped roasted peanuts
2/3 cup juice of tamarind or 4 teasp white vinegar mixed with 6 teasp water
3 tsp palm sugar
2 tsp fish sauce
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp chopped spring onion
pinch of chili powder
pinch of salt
5 cloves of crushed garlic
1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Drain your noodles from the cold water and pour boiling water on it. Let it sit for 3 minutes and drain. The noodles should be al dente, definitely not too soft.
Heat oil in a wok and add the chicken. Fry it for only a few minutes until the meat whitens. Season it with salt and pepper. Set it aside.
In the same wok add 2 Tbsp oil and add garlic, the bell pepper pieces, chili powder, the white parts of the spring onion and stir until fragrant. Add tamarind juice or white vinegar and noodles. Turn the heat to medium and stir fry for a few minutes. Turn the heat down to low and move the noodles to one side of the wok so you have place to fry the eggs. Add the eggs and scramble. Add fish sauce,soy sauce, sugar, salt, peanuts, the sprouts and turn the heat up to high. Stir fry until thoroughly mixed. 
Sprinkle with the green parts of the spring onion and the chopped cilantro.
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…

Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Today I woke up and had the urge to bake something. At first, I was very VERY intrigued by a wonderful brownie recipe but then I came to my senses...that no, today is Wednesday! And brownies don't happen on Wednesdays around here. So I scolded myself for even thinking about it and swore that I will work out something vigorous instead :) But the scorching desire to bake something was still there! Ahhh! What to do now? I had a bag of unsalted roasted peanuts in the pantry so first let's make some peanut butter! That's healthy. And easy. Way too easy, I needed something more. So when I have peanut butter, let's make cookies with it!! Right??? Such a lovely idea!  I was looking through a couple PB cookie recipes and I originally wanted a no-flour kind but when I saw the amount of sugar each had... I was like no way am I gonna add 1 cup sugar to 1 cup PB. Let alone, I didn't even have 1 whole cup of PB. 
You really learn to appreciate things when you don't have a lot. …
