At first glance you might think this is a traditional Mexican dish, but none of that is true. It's a combination of Mexican and Indian food. The garam masala gives the meatballs a unique and delicious taste. It just gives it a little bit of extra than the more 'standard' meatballs. As you can see I didn't exactly follow the recipe of Jmaie Oliver, because I've used rice instead of bulgur wheat.

Wow doesn't this looks delicious! And I can tell you, that it tastes great! I saw Jamie Oliver making this dish in his program "15 minutes meals". So inspired by his show I decided to make this dish. Although Jamie can make it in 15 minutes, I needed more time to cook this meal, because I don't own a foodprocessor. After seeing his show a couple of times, I really think I should get one. As you can see in the picture I have replaced the tenderstem with an other veggie :-).
The coconot buns are very easy to make, but to be honest it didn't taste that great. It's just bread with some coconut flavour. Just serve the chicken and greens with rice.

Never knew it was possible to cook with cola. You would think the ribs would get a cola flavour. but the cola will just makes the meat tender and a bit more sweeter than normal. The ribs will be extra sticky and sweet. Of course the meat will fall off the bones.

Ever since I watched the episode of 'No Reservations' with David Chang of Momofuku, I've been obsessing about pulled pork. After some research I've found that this is a pretty common dish for bbq in the States. In Holland I have never been to a BBQ where they have prepared this dish. I think it would just take too long for the regular BBQ. Usually I just end up eating burned meat. So the secret of pulled pork is slow cooking and a lot of patience. It isn't difficult at all but you just need to patient. You can easily eat pulled pork with noodles, rice or just one a sandwich. Remember everything tastes better with some pork ;-).

The only decent cooking show we can watch in Holland is Saturday Kitchen on the BBC. You probably know the cook, James Martin, as the 'butter guy'. It's amazing how much butter this guy uses for a dish. He starts with butter and ends with butter. Besides his butter fetish, James Martin is a very charming cook and a good host of the program. The best part of Saturday Kitchen is they show parts of other great cooking shows, like 'The Little Paris Kitchen'. Rachel Khoo is just so inspiring and shows you don't need a fancy kitchen to do some great cooking! It's funny to see how inventive she is. How would have thought that you reinvent the croque madame? It's such a classic dish, but she manages to give it a little twist! Like Rachel said: "No crunch, no croque". So use your butter well.
