I make an Indian chicken,

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 small onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
5-6 tablespoons curry powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon paprika
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
1/2 teaspoon white sugar
salt and pepper
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite-size pieces
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 cup plain yogurt
3/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 tsp optional-Indian chili if you like heat (or cayenne pepper substitute)

Stir in garlic, curry powder, cinnamon, paprika, bay leaf, ginger, sugar, pepper and salt. Continue stirring for 2 minutes. Add chicken pieces, tomato paste, yogurt, and coconut milk.

Cover and marinate overnight.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onion until browned and caramelized. Add the chicken pieces along with all of the marinade.

Remove bay leaf, and stir in lemon juice and indian chili, if you want it spicy...or cayenne pepper. Simmer 5 more minutes.

Serve with saffron rice and peas, or plain white Indian basmati rice and peas!

  • A Brazillian specialty! Picanha is a cut of beef, the top part of the top sirloin sometimes called cullote or top sirloin fat cap. You can order this cut at your local butcher. Each piece weighs about 3 to 4 pounds. Ask your butcher to trim the bottom and leave the fat from the top of the cut.

    Texas de Brazil Picanha Steak
    3-4 lbs Picanha steak
    1 C garlic
    2 C vegetable oil
    kosher salt

    Slice sirloin into 1-inch thick steaks. Using a blender; mix 1 cup of fresh garlic and 2 cups of vegetable oil, pulse it few times. Prepare your grill with charcoal, heat on high heat until coals are glowing. Using kosher salt, cover the meat generously. Brush the mixture of garlic and oil on the meat and place it on the grill for 3 minutes on each side or until prepared to the temperature you prefer your steaks.

  • Coquito (Puerto Rico)

    There are different ways to make this, but this is my favorite way:
    2 cans evap. milk
    1 can sweetened condensed milk
    1 can coconut milk
    1 can cream of coconut
    1 350 ml bottle of white rum (or more if you like it strong.)
    sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg

    Blend until smooth and refrigerate until cold. You can serve it with or without ice. DRINK AND ENJOY.

    It is like egg nog but the coconut gives it a tropical flair. Christmas with my family wouldn't be Christmas without it!
