Fresh Veggie Strips with Khmer Dipping Sauces-Ginger Fish Sauce & Tamarind Sauce

Here are some pics of veggies that I prepared for the party to go with the dipping sauces. You can use almost any veggie that can be cut into pieces (radish, carrots courgettes etc.etc.) or leaves (like salad, mustard or cabbage even). They use all sorts here to go with many, many dishes.  It’s a good way to eat those greens. I love green. It should definitely be added onto the nutrition list of what our body needs. Somehow the chlorophyl in green veggies and leaves is a must for my body! After a year of studying herbal medicine at the Samuel Hahnemann Schule in Berlin (amongst many other subjects-but I didn’t finish the course because I did a runner to Asia;-)) I realized why. It’s the blood of plants and somehow we need it in our bodies _ can’t really explain but I just know my body craves it.

The sauces I made here for the first time and they weren’t perfect. Since then I’ve made them again and then had the same thing made by my girlfriend. Her’s tasted far, far better. I will get her recipe and post it. She said the sauces have as much variety in them as one wishes. I made the sauces below from my favourite Khmer food website-Khmerkorm,  on the net. See bottom of page for links.  At the time of this party 2-3 months back we were not together so I couldn’t ask her.

How even the common old cucumber can look so scrumptious!! Even the dark green one-I thought it’s a courgette when I bought it-but no, it’s a cucumber too!! 🙂

Easy Tomato & Onion Side Salad and Coriander & Kaffir Lime Rind sauce

So here is the third part and final part of the dinner I made last week when a friend came to visit from Kuala Lumpur. Here is the side salad and sauce recipe that accompanied the “Fried Cambodian Fish Bengali Style”  and “slow fried 3 Aubergine & Pepper dish.

God, all these terms and names of dishes. This is new to me! Normally all I care about is that my food tastes good and is made with fresh and natural ingredients. Since I’ve started writing these recipes for this blog, I’ve noticed that I don’t know the names of many of the fruits, vegetables or other food that I cook with and eat. I know it in Bengali but not in English and sometimes only the German name pops into my head. And to make it more complicated now I’m learning Khmer 🙂

Sweet Thai Basil Mango & Tomato Salad

I was up at 4.30 this morning. By 6 I had cleaned my flat and done the washing. I wash by hand as I don’t have or need a washing machine. Then I was out running. I LOVE running early in the morning. The world is so beautiful and peaceful and so am I. No matter how busy the city, this early in the morning there’s a magic in the air.

Finally, this is the rhythm I want. After weeks of insomnia and topsy turvy sleeping patterns-waking up late afternoon because I can’t sleep all night or in the morning finally dosing off towards midday. Awful. I didn’t sleep more than my usual 4-5 hours last night. But sleeping at night makes a big difference.

I did my 5k this morning which is my norm. Still not very fast but that doesn’t matter. There is a steady improvement! I don’t have a pedometer at the moment so I can’t say exactly how far I ran. But my norm is 5k in 20-25 min. And I ran longer than 25 minutes.

After I came home I made myself this delicious salad!

Pan Fried Tomato Salad

Today is my first attempt to write down a recipe in a format that you can follow. I’m not used to measuring. I usually cook from feeling. I start cooking with an idea and end up throwing in all sorts of different herbs, spices (and other things like the neighbour’s dog) in the process. I’m in a happy world of my own when I cook. Totally oblivious to everything other than the food and my kitchen. It’s total Zen : -)
