What a beautiful video! My friends just returned from a trip to Morocco. They travel all over the world, but said Morocco was one of their favorites. It's on my list of places to see as well.
This looks gorgeous. I've only experienced a Moroccan tea ceremony once in my life, and I'd love to actually see it performed in Morocco!

How to Make Katsu Curry (カツカレー), Japan's Cutlet & Curry Dish (Vegan Option)
Every so often, this is one of those plates I get a serious craving for. I always think that katsu cutlets tend to be a little too dry and that simple curry rice plates are a little bit boring, so when I'm able to order them together, I get really excited. They really balance each other out! Traditionally, katsu curry is made with chicken, beef, or pork, but you can customize this however you would want. For example, I have seen people sub the meat out for thick breaded cuts of eggplant or Portobello mushroom for an equally satisfying vegetarian dish. Katsu Curry (Makes 4 servings) INGREDIENTS: To Make the Katsu (Meat Version) - 4 pork loin chops, chicken breast, or thin steaks (about 1" thick, no bones) Salt & pepper, to taste 1/2 cup flour 1 - 2 eggs 1 cup panko or bread crumbs Oil for deep frying To Make the Katsu (Vegan/Vegetarian Version) - 4 1" thick slices of eggplant, 4 portobello caps, or 4 store-bought seitan-based cutlets (I would recommend trying Gardein's Chick'n Scallopini - thawed - for this dish.) Salt & pepper, to taste 1/2 cup flour 1 - 2 egg replacements (Ener-G Egg Replacer woould be good for this recipe.) 1 cup panko or bread crumbs Oil for frying To Make the Curry - 2 yellow onions 2 carrots 3 potatoes 1 tablespoons oil 3 1/2 cups water 1 box curry sauce mix (approximately 4 ounces) 4 cups of cooked white rice DIRECTIONS: 1) To make the katsu, make small cuts all over your cutlet of choice with tip of knife. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides. Coat it with flour, dip in eggs (or egg replacement), then cover with bread crumbs. 2) Heat deep frying oil to 350 F, and deep fry crumb-covered cutlet. (You can check the temperature by dropping a bread crumb. If it comes up to the oil surface right after it's dropped, it's good.) 3) Fry until color turns golden brown and cutlet floats in the oil, about 5-8 minutes, turning once or twice. Set the meat on a cooling rack for a minute. Cut into 5-6 pieces. 4) To make the curry, cut vegetables into bite size pieces. Heat oil and fry onions for 8 minutes. Add carrots and potatoes. Add water to the pot. After it boils, remove from heat and add curry sauce mix. Stir well so the pieces of the mix dissolve. Let it simmer for 10 - 15 minutes (cook longer if you'd like it thicker). If you'd like to add the optional curry powder, stir it in just before serving. 5) Put about a cup of rice on each plate, then place a katsu over the rice. Finally, generously pour curry over it. Serve while still warm.
Indian Dishes In Malta
1. Tandoori Chicken It's hard to find anyone who doesn't fall in love with tandoori chicken, that popular Indian chicken recipe. Although traditionally roasted in a clay oven, you can make the yoghurt-marinated chicken in a regular oven or on the grill. It needs prior planning, as the coated chicken should sit in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or overnight. If you prefer, you can sear the marinated chicken cubes first on the stovetop to achieve that signature tandoori char. 2. Palak Paneer (Spinach and Cottage Cheese) The most popular and healthy paneer recipe at Indian restaurants is, by far, palak paneer. It is a mild-flavoured dish that is super healthy, as it is nothing more than spinach and cottage cheese (the paneer), along with the typical Indian spices. The large pieces of spinach and fenugreek leave included in the recipe; this dish takes on a dark green colour. The cubed paneer are pan-fried first, contributing a nice texture to the plate. Palak paneer gets even more satisfying when served with your favourite flatbread. 3. Chicken Tikka Masala Chicken tikka masala is a tasty and exotic grilled chicken dish with a thick, creamy gravy that is unforgettable after the first bite. A tomato-yoghurt sauce is spiced with chilli, ginger, garlic, and garam masala, the universal Indian spice blend. The chicken is marinated overnight, grilled, and then gently cooked in a slightly smoky gravy. You will want to serve this dish over basmati rice with warm naan bread for soaking up the gravy. 4. Rogan Josh (Red Lamb) The literal translation for Rogan Josh, the name of this recipe from Kashmir is "red lamb." The colour comes from Kashmiri dry red chillies. While the name of the dish may sound hot, the warmth of the dish is toned down by the cream that is added at the end. The long list of spices called for in this recipe, but it is available in the local market of your city. Spices such as cardamom, turmeric, cumin, and garam masala are often sold in small bulk quantities, so they'll last for quite a long time. 5. Naan (Leavened Indian Flatbread) Naan, a puffy flatbread, is a staple in the Indian dishes in Malta and can go with everything you make, including many traditional dishes like tandoori chicken or all kinds of kebabs. Though naan is cooked in a tandoor or earthen oven, you can make it in your oven. The ingredient list includes yeast, sugar, flour, and water, as well as ghee and yoghurt.
Choosing the Right Tea to Match Your Mood
We as humans tend to experience multiple moods that come and go without any notice and quite frankly, it can get really frustrating. A kind gesture from a stranger can make your entire day. But, all of a sudden, an inconsiderate jerk pushes past you in order to get the last available seat on the subway and then an immediate transformation occurs. That one quick, yet affective gesture has officially dampened your high spirits and whiplashed you into another mood you really didn’t want to be in. Instead of being heavily medicated and secluding yourself in your room during a Netflix binge, grab a cup of tea and let its natural ingredients do the healing. Common cold: Elderflower Avoiding the common cold is inevitable sometimes. You feel yourself being cautious when you’re in public spaces, yet you still manage to pick it up after you used about half a gallon of hand sanitizer. Elderflower tea relieves the symptoms of a common cold. It has a gentle and pleasant tea, so it’s welcoming to people of all ages, especially young kids. It contains antiviral and immune boosting effects, so it can tackle flu symptoms and other common cold problems. Stressed: Lemon Balm Maybe you have to meet a strict deadline for work. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed because finals are approaching and you’re trying to cram in last minute study sessions. You have found that physically you’re exhausted, but the gears running in your mind won’t seem to shut off. Lemon balm aids relaxation and calmness. The oils in lemon balm contain chemicals that relax muscles, particularly in the stomach and bladder, and calms future anxieties you may be experiencing. Slow metabolism: Green Tea Whether you’re looking to shed a couple extra pounds, or simply speed up your metabolism, green tea has proven to be very beneficial in EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), an ingredient known to speed up metabolism. Try to make it a habit of consuming 4-6 cups a day in order to notice a significant change in energy level. Sleepless nights: Chamomile Chamomile tea is strictly herbal based, so it doesn’t contain any caffeine, which is the main ingredient for keeping someone up in the first place. The tea itself has a unique, sweet, and floral aroma and will have a drowsiness effect on you. Your local grocery store should have brands like Celestial Seasonings and Traditional Medicinals, which are two of my favorite brands; however, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even go as far as drying out the flowers and brewing them yourself. Bloated: Peppermint Peppermint has been known to help fatigue and stomach problems. It calms your internal systems and is extremely useful if you over-indulge in a late night meal or food loaded with sugars and fibers that the body finds hard to absorb. Next time you’re feeling uncomfortable because you maybe had one too many slices of cake, try and drink some peppermint tea to settle your stomach and reduce bloating. Nauseous: Ginger Tea Soon to be mothers have claimed that Ginger has helped them during pregnancy sickness. If you make this tea from grated root ginger, it will provide even more benefits. First, you want to steep two teaspoons in boiled water. Then, let it sit until it’s cool. Finally, sip on it casually, and you should find your nausea disappearing. Try not to consume more than three teaspoons a day.
How To Make Gyeran Bbang (계란빵), A Popular South Korean Egg Muffin
When I first got into Korean cooking, I had never actually eaten at a Korean restaurant. I didn't actually know what most of the dishes I was making were supposed to taste like, but as I live in a town with no real Korean restaurants, I was curious to find out more about the different foods the region had to offer. The nice thing about Korean food is, for the most part, the recipes are simple and easy to follow. The trickiest part about Korean cooking is being able to get all of the ingredients in place, which might require you to locate a nearby Asian grocery store or find a nice place to buy them online. (If that is your situation, I would recommend ordering from H-Mart's official website, one of the larger Korean grocery chains here in the US.) However, gyeran bbang - which translates to 'egg bread' - is a pretty simple Korean food to make without needing to dig that much for ingredients. In fact, you probably already have most if not all the ingredients in your refrigerator right now! Gyeran bbang is a popular street food that is often sold by vendors in South Korea. It was also made recently popular in the Korean television show "The Return of Superman" when actor Jang Hyunsung made them with his two sons. Gyeran bbang is perfect for any time of day, but is especially delicious when served warm for breakfast or on a cold winter day. An oval muffin pan is traditionally used to make the bread's shape, but a standard muffin pan works just as well. I've even seen gyeran bbang in adorable heart shapes! --------------------------------------------- Gyeran Bbang (Egg Bread) 3/4 cup flour 10 eggs 1/2 salted butter, melted 1/3 cup sugar 1/4 cup milk 3/4 teaspoon baking powder Salt, to taste 1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Whisk two eggs in a mixing bowl until they are slightly foamy. Add the sugar and continue whisking until all of it has dissolved. 2. Sift the flour and baking powder into the egg mixture. Add the melted butter and milk and mix well. Place the batter in a ziplock bag. 3. Brush the inside of the muffin pan with melted butter. Cut a 1/4" hole in one corner of the ziplock bag and squeeze 2 - 3 tablespoons worth of batter into each space. It should cover about the first 1/4". Smooth the batter with a spoon, if needed. 4. Carefully break an egg on top of each muffin. Sprinkle each egg with a generous pinch of salt, then cover each egg with the rest of the contents of the ziplock bag. (Make sure each muffin space is only 3/4 of the way full so that each muffin has room to rise.) 5. Bake the muffins for about 24 - 26 minutes or until golden brown. Turn off the oven, but leave the muffins inside for an additional five minutes to continue cooking the egg yolks. Serve warm.
How To Make Oyakodon (親子丼), Donburi with Chicken and Egg
A 'donburi' - or 'don' for short - in Japanese cuisine is any type of meal that is eaten over a steaming bowl of rice. Among the most internationally popular are katsudon, a rice bowl topped with a fried cutlet and covered in katsu sauce, or gyudon, which is topped with simmered cuts of beef and chopped onion. Perhaps my favorite of all the donburi meals out there, however, is oyakodon, which literally translates to 'parent-and-child' donburi because it uses both the egg and the chicken. (A little gross when you think about it, but whatever. It's delicious.) A warm bowl of oyakodon gives me the same kind of wholesome 'well-being' feeling I would get when I ate a bowl of chicken noodle soup growing up. I blame this either entirely on the chicken and onion itself or the aromatic flavors the donburi is cooked with. In any case, oyakodon is perhaps one of the simplest donburi bowls to make, and I highly suggest you try it out yourself! Pretty much all of the harder to find ingredients (particularly dashi and mirin) should be easy to find in the international section of your local supermarket. ------------------------------------------------------------- Oyakodon, Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl Chicken thigh, skin on (You can use any cut of chicken really, but I prefer using boneless skin-on chicken thigh because of all of its flavor.) 2 eggs 1/2 cup dashi broth (or chicken broth if you have trouble finding dashi near you) 2 teaspoons soy sauce 2 teaspoons honey 2 tablespoon sake (or mirin) a pinch of salt green onions, chopped 1. Place your chicken onto a cold saute pan with some oil, making sure as much meat is making contact with the pan so that cooking will be nice and even. Adjust to medium heat and continue pressing down the meat with a spatula as it cooks to make sure that every bit of the chicken is touching the pan as it goes from cold to hot. It'll make your chicken nice as crispy! 2. As your chicken cooks, mix dashi, soy sauce, honey, and a little bit of salt in a small bowl. In another bowl, throw in two eggs and lightly beat them just enough to break up the yolk. 3. Once the chicken skin is browned, remove from heat and cut the meat into small, bite-size pieces. Don't worry if your chicken isn't cooked thoroughly because it will be put back in the pan later. 4. Drain excess oil in the pan, and put it back on your stove to medium-high with the chicken. Add sake or mirin and cook until the liquid is evaporated. before adding the dashi/soy sauce/honey mixture. Cook until the liquid boils. Add the green onions and egg mixture, and cover until the eggs reach a preferred consistency. 5. Serve over rice, and as an option, garnish with flat-leaf parsley or furikake, a seaweed-based garnish you can find at most Japanese markets. Enjoy!
This Uber Driver changed my perception
I was sitting tight in line for a ride at the air terminal. At the point when a Uber taxi pulled up, the primary thing I saw was that the man was cleaned to a splendid sparkle. Sprucely wearing a white shirt, dark tie, and newly squeezed dark pants. The Uber taxi driver leapt out and adjusted the vehicle to open the back traveler entryway for me. He gave me a covered card and stated: 'I'm Joe, your driver. While I'm stacking your sacks in the boot, I'd like you to peruse my statement of purpose-after sales service.' Shocked, I read the card indeed. It stated: Joe Mission Statement: "To enable my clients: · Reach their destination in the fastest possible means · Reach their destination in a secure and pocket wise manner I was puzzled, mainly when I saw that within the taxi coordinated the outside. Flawlessly perfect! As he slid in the driver's seat, he stated, 'OK, like some espresso? I have a virtual canteen of customary espresso and one of Java espresso.' I said tongue in cheek, 'Much obliged; I'd prefer a soda.' He grinned and stated, 'No issue. I have a cooler with normal and Diet Coke, Milkshake, water, and squeezed orange.' Nearly faltering, I stated, 'I'll take Milkshake.' Giving me my beverage, Joe stated, 'If you'd like something to peruse, I have The New York Times, The Daily Mall, and Wifi. As we were pulling endlessly, Joe gave me another overlaid card, 'These are the stations I get and the music they play on the off chance that you'd prefer to tune in to the radio.' Also, as though that weren't sufficient, Joe revealed to me that he had the cooling ON and approached if the temperature was perfect for me. At that point, he instructed me concerning the best course to my destination for that typical day. He likewise let me realize that he'd be glad to visit and inform me regarding a portion of the sights or, if I liked, to disregard me with my contemplations. 'Let me know, Joe,' I was astounded and asked him, 'Do always generally served clients like this?' Joe grinned into the rearview reflect. "Actually no, not generally. It's just been over the most recent two years. During my initial five years of driving, I invested a large portion of my energy grumbling like the remainder of the taxi drivers does. At that point, I found out about the POWER OF CHOICE one day." The intensity of the decision is that you can be a duck or a hawk. 'If you get up in the first part of the day hoping to have an awful day, you'll once in a while frustrate yourself. Quit griping!' 'Try not to be a duck. Be a hawk. Ducks quack and grumble. Falcons take off over the group.' 'That hit me. hard' said Joe 'It is about me. I was continually quacking and grumbling, so I chose to change my mentality and become a falcon. I glanced around at different taxis and their drivers. The taxis were filthy, the drivers were disagreeable, and the clients were despondent. So I chose to roll out certain improvements gradually. A couple at once. when my clients are satisfied and happy from my service, I accomplished more.' 'That is a thumbs up by me,' I said. 'It sure has,' Joe answered. 'My first year as an Uber driver, I multiplied my pay from the earlier year. This year I'll likely fourfold it. My clients call me for arrangements on my mobile phone or leave a message on it.' Joe settled on an alternate decision. He chose to quit quacking like a duck and begin taking off like a hawk. Begin turning into a hawk today - one little advance each week one week from now - and next That is the Real Meaning of Life. Develop yourself and your abilities in an unexpected way. Be a hawk — .not a Duck. There are such a large number of ducks in the world at this moment, quacking and quacking and quacking. Decide to be the distinction. I so pick. Catch me here, for photography hacks and more. #kpop
