Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Shami Kebab

ethnic, beef, hamburger

1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup dhal or dried split peas
1 teaspoon cumin seed
1 1 in cinnamon stick
6 whole cloves
1 1 in ginger root, peeled
8 cloves garlic
2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 cup water
1 onion, chopped
1/3 cup ciliantro, chopped
3 green chillies, chopped
1/2 cup liquid egg substitute

Soak dhal (or dried peas) in water for 10 minutes, then drain. Put 3 cups water in a large skillet, and boil the ground beef, dhal or peas, and next 7 ingredients approximately 45 minutes, or until all liquid evaporates. When all of the liquid has evaporated, allow mixture to cool slightly. Add liquid egg substitute. Then grind the meat mixture to a fine paste. This can be done in a blender or food processor, the liquid egg substitute providing the moisture. After the mixture has been made into paste, add the chopped onion, coriander leaves and chillies. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, or spray with noncaloric spray to prevent sticking. Measure 1/4-cup portions onto the cookie sheet and shape them into patties. Bake in 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until set. Remove carefully from pan with spatula. Use a grill on a hot summer day!
