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.


Makhua Phao Song Kruang


1 stephen ceideburg
4 large aubergines (eggplants)
5 oz pork, minced or ground
7 oz prawns (shrimp), shelled
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 shallots, chopped
1 tablespoon oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon fish sauce (nam pla)
2 tablespoon fermented soya beans
1 teaspoon sugar
1 red bell pepper or:
3 red chines

Cook the aubergines whole in a hot oven (230 degrees C/450 degrees F/Gas Mark 8) or barbecue them directly over strong heat until the skins are burnt. Toss the aubergines into cold water then peel and cut them into large pieces. Place the pieces in a serving dish. Mix the pork and prawns together. Add pepper to taste and put aside. Saute the shallots in the oil, Remove the shallots and drain them, using the oil remaining in the pan to saute the garlic. When the garlic is golden brown, add the pork and prawn mixture and saute for a few minutes over medium heat. Add the vinegar, fish sauce, soya beans and sugar and mix in well; cover and cook for a few minutes. Top the aubergine pieces with the pork and prawn mixture, and sprinkle with the sugar.
