Cooking Time
60 minutes

Ingredients (serves 6)
1 medium red onion, chopped
2cm piece fresh ginger, peeled, chopped
1 stick lemongrass (white part only), chopped
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
400ml can coconut milk
1.6kg whole chicken
2 teaspoons peanut oil
Peanut oil, for shallow frying
Lemon wedges and fresh coriander sprigs, to serve
Coconut rice
400ml can coconut milk
1 stick lemongrass, white part only, halved lengthways
2cm piece fresh ginger, peeled, halved
2 cups jasmine rice

Place onion, ginger, lemongrass, coriander, salt, turmeric and 1/4 cup coconut milk in a food processor. Process until finely chopped.

Rinse chicken (including cavity) under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towel. Trim excess fat. Cut chicken into 12 pieces (see tip).

Heat peanut oil in large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion mixture. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add chicken, skin-side down, and remaining coconut milk. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Turn chicken. Cook for a further 15 minutes, or until liquid is nearly absorbed. Transfer to a plate. Refrigerate, uncovered, for 3 hours or overnight, if time permits (see note).

Make coconut rice Place coconut milk, lemongrass, ginger, rice and 2 cups cold water in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes or until coconut mixture has been absorbed. Remove from heat. Stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Remove and discard lemongrass and ginger.

Meanwhile, pour enough oil into a large, deep frying pan to cover base. Heat over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 2 to 3 minutes each side or until golden. Place on a large plate lined with paper towel to drain. Serve chicken with coconut rice, lemon wedges and coriander sprigs.

Tip: You could use 1.6kg mixed chicken pieces (drumsticks, wings, thighs, breasts) instead of a whole chicken.

Chicken needs to be uncovered in the refrigerator so it dries out.

Lebanese Grilled Eggplant Dip Recipe

Photo: Lebanese Grilled Eggplant Dip Recipe

Serves 4
Yields 2 cups

by Judith Fertig from Fine Cooking
Issue 124

Serve this rich, smoky dip with pita chips, crackers, or crudités. If you don’t have any za’atar (a Middle Eastern spice blend), you can substitute 1/4 tsp. dried thyme.
1 large eggplant, trimmed and sliced lengthwise into 6 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil; more for brushing
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
3 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. za’atar
Aleppo pepper or paprika

Prepare a medium-high (425°F to 450°F) gas or charcoal grill fire. Brush the eggplant slices with oil and season with salt and pepper.

Grill the eggplant until grill marks form on one side, about 3 minutes. Flip the slices and continue to grill until the eggplant is tender, about 2 minutes more.

Put the eggplant in a  food processor with the tahini, yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, za’atar, remaining 1 Tbs. oil, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Pulse until well combined; there should be very small pieces of eggplant visible.

Season to taste with more salt and let sit for at least 15 minutes before serving to let the flavors meld. Garnish with a sprinkle of Aleppo pepper or paprika.
Make Ahead Tips

The spread can be made and refrigerated up to 1 day ahead.Return to cool room temperature to serve.

150g sultanas
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon

200g caster sugar
4 eggs
100g dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a 20cm bundt cake pan well with melted butter. Chill, then lightly dust with flour, shaking off any excess.

Place sultanas in a bowl with lemon juice and soak for 10 minutes.

Place butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until fluffy and pale. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition until combined. Stir through lemon zest, chocolate chips and sultanas and lemon juice. In 2 batches, alternately add flour and cream, beating well after each addition until completely incorporated. Pour into the prepared cake pan and cook on the lower shelf of the oven for 1 hour until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly in pan, then turn out onto a cooling rack.

For the glaze, combine icing sugar and milk in a bowl, stirring until a smooth glaze. Transfer the cake to a serving plate, then drizzle with the white glaze and the melted chocolate. Scatter the top with chopped walnuts and allow the glaze to set before serving.
