Best Mojito made from Basil leafs not mints!!?

Vacation work usually gives you a lot of experiences … I support that.

Back in December 2012, I was working at a resort as ‘Everything woman’. I did everything. But it was a nice opportunity for me to learn new skills.

 

A few starving guests ordered food in late afternoon one day. Unfortunately our cook was not there at the moment and I volunteered to cook and fill their tummy. I cooked for them under condition that they have to eat whatever I can cook. ( I can cook only one dish at the moment )

Fried Egg Salad - First time on Koh Phangan

First time for Fried Egg Salad – When I cook for my friend (host)

Since I’ve been living at my friend’s house I think I should do something in return. I requited his kindness, I decided to cook a few dishes for our dinner.

I went to shopping earlier without idea which dish I’m going to cook. And I came back in about 20 minutes later with a lot of things. I think it’s going to be enough for a few days. I got half kilogram of chicken breast, Ginger, Eggs, Onion, Beans, and a few more stuff.

When I was working at Hansa Resort, I remembered a guest ordered something look delicious and I’ve never cooked it. So it’s going to be good chance to try. That dish call “Fried Egg Salad” When it comes to “salad” for Thai food it’s usually spicy—you should know that 🙂

I’ve been taken any cooking class and I am a real beginner. Let’s see how I cook this dish…

It was my first time cooking this dish and it was well. I proud of myself 🙂

By the way I also cook another simple one as well. It called “Stir Fry Chicken with Ginger”

Cutting Ginger is tough!

Stir Fry Chicken with Ginger

–       Chicken breast sliced

–       Onion

–       Mushroom

–       Ginger

–       Beans

–       Fish sauce

–       Oyster sauce

–       Sugar

–       Oil

–       Garlic

Preparation

I am not good at cutting and slicing work. So you know what to do, right? This is simple dish. What I found difficult is ginger cutting part! How do I cook? After you’re done with cutting work. Heat a little bit of oil, add chopped garlic, put chicken and follow by oyster sauce, then ginger. Fry them for a while because ginger need some time to cook. While waiting for ginger to be right, add fish sauce, sugar, or more oyster sauce as you wish. Then add onion, mushroom, beans or other vegetable. You expected flavor to be more salty and less sweet from mushroom and oyster sauce. But I added sugar because I love sweetness.

Well, that what I cooked when I was on Koh Phangan. My friend likes Fried Egg Salad.. but it was spicy. Of course, he complaint on the next day!

Oh yeah, while I’m cooking and busy in the kitchen. Judy tried to get my attention and begging for food. He knew that I was cooking!
