Today’s recipe is a delicious little cookie, that is delicate, crumbly, tangy, sweet and melts in your mouth (hence the name lime meltaways). When I saw this recipe on Martha Stewart’s show, I knew I had to make it because of how easy it looked.
Ghraybeh (Arabic Butter cookies) and Lime meltaways for Easter, recipes coming soon.
To my excitement I found fermented black bean paste, which I was craving for some time now, I am not quite sure if it is the same as the Korean Jajangmyeon (in Korean Jajang= Balck bean sauce, myeon= noodles) is slightly bitter where you should cook off that bitterness, so I tasted the paste and it didn’t taste bitter at all to me it tasted heavenly, I actually wanted to slather it on almost everything.
Before you get all squeamish hear me out here, I, like most of you have never liked chicken liver mainly due to the eww factor and the fact that I didn’t like the texture of the liver, but once my mom made this recipe where it combined the crunch, the tangy, sweet and salty flavors I changed my mind and devoured the whole dish.
Today’s drink is simply called (Gerfeh bel joz) which literary translates into Cinnamon with walnuts, it is a slowly brewed cinnamon tea that is usually consumed in winter to warm you up and lift your spirit. Jordanians usually prepare it after women give birth topping it with chopped up walnuts, why is that? I have no idea its just a tradition!
After going back home I had horrible cravings for Korean dumplings (만두),
Seafood scallion pancake (해물파전) or simple scallion pancake, Dakgalbi ( 닭갈비) which is a spicy, super fiery chicken cooked with rice cake and cabbage (to die for), Korean Barbecue which is heaven in a bite and for today’s recipe am making Jjim Dalk, which is a slowly braised chicken dish cooked in a dark caramelized soy sauce with lots of sweet and soft veggies, served with no other than white rice that is, the broth should be sweet, salty, and spicy.
