Now this brings me to the title of this post. I remember trying to get a piece of the "cooking" action in the kitchen when I was a little girl but the only action I would get from Mum was a wave of the "Drvena kašika" wooden spoon! :-))) ha ha (sorry Mum). Let's just say kids in the kitchen wasn't a favourite activity with my Serbian Mum. Nevertheless the cooking was always something I remember and here is my version of a classic Serbian meal we used to have growing up as kids. Mum typically served this with either white rice or mash potato and of course with a BIG dollop of sour cream :-)))) YUMMO but I have placed my healthier twist on this type of meal and hope you enjoy it. My revamp version: Dust 600g sliced or diced chicken with GF or sometimes I use rice flour Season with salt and pepper Shake in a zip lock bag and dust off any excess flour Heat some olive oil in a fry pan and cook the chicken Once browned, add a diced onion, 1tbs paprika and water to allow these juices to absorb and cook for approximately 20 minutes, stirring regularly and add water if the mixture becomes too dry. I typically stir natural yogurt through the chicken mix and serve with a sweet potato and carrot puree.
Growing up what was your favourite food?
Much love and friendship, xxDani
