.: Fallin’

Nor a romantic neither a new recipe, but a good one. Chickpeas polpette or egg-falafel

200 gr chickpeas – ceci
onion (shallot) – cipolla (scalogno)
parsley – prezzemolo
cumin – cumino
coriander – coriandolo
nutmeg – noce moscata
1 egg – 1 uovo
breadcrumb – pangrattato
salt – sale

Chop the onion and add the spices – tritate lo scalogno e aggiungete le spezie. Chop the (precooked) chickpeas, then mix all the ingredients (some breadcrumb too)* Tritate i ceci (precotti), poi mescolate tutto (un po’ di pane va anche dentro il misto)

Make some balls and roll them in the breadcrumb * fate delle polpettine e impanatele nel pane.

Fry carefully, for they burn very quickly * Friggete con cautela perché bruciano molto velocemente.

They’ll be falling away very quickly 🙂 espcially if you serve them with batbout bread and eat them with your fingers

I keep on fallin’
In and out of love
With you
Sometimes I love ya
Sometimes you make me blue
Sometimes I feel good
At times I feel used
Lovin’ you darlin’
Makes me so confused…

.: (Things gonna be) alright

Are things alright ? Can you really say so in any specific moment of your life ? Sometimes I feel things are never alright… or maybe things are always fine but we just can’t see it.

I still can’t cook falafel perfectly… but I think they are… just fine !

my recipe is this:

200 gr chickpeas – ceci
onion (shallot) – cipolla (scalogno)
parsley – prezzemolo
cumin – cumino
coriander – coriandolo
nutmeg – noce moscata
1 egg – 1 uovo
breadcrumb – pangrattato

I add an egg to make them easier. Chop the onion and add the spices –  tritate lo scalogno e aggiungete le spezie.

Chop the (precooked) chickpeas, then mix all the ingredients (some breadcrumb too), make some balls and roll them in the breadcrumb * Tritate i ceci (precotti), poi mescolate tutto (un po’ di pane va anche dentro il misto), fate delle polpettine e impanatele nel pane. Fry carefully, for they burn very quickly * Friggete con cautela perché bruciano molto velocemente.

Se volete potete aggiungere un po’ di parmigiano, oppure più spezie… a seconda dei gusti. Anyway they’re gonna be alright

.: My life is going on

Here is my polpette again. Things go on. Sometimes they look the same, sometimes they look like changing… who knows what’s really happening ?

you think you are mixing always the same ingredients, the same way… but things turn out different.

Look….these are from another cooking day

I was more careful with fire and they turned out paler

Food is a metaphor for life…. going on.

.: All good

Some days you start good, go on good and end good. First, a nice breakfast with my lovely biscuits…

Then tagliatelle al ragù…

Third: you start to cook some bread

and you will have it with some simple and nice polpette

this is my bread

and in the end… you add ice cream to some beautiful strawberries

isn’t it all good ?

.: Sultans of swing

I already made chickpeas balls, so this is not new, but it might be new for someone, and it’s a nice recipe. Falafel is originally a north Africa dish, and I tried them during a holiday to Egypt. They were the sultans of my trip. This is an easier rendition, with eggs.

Ingredients:

200 gr chickpeas – ceci
onion (shallot) – cipolla (scalogno)
parsley – prezzemolo
cumin – cumino
coriander – coriandolo
nutmeg – noce moscata
1 egg – 1 uovo
grated bread – pangrattato

Prepare the spices and chop the onion – preparate le spezie e tritate lo scalogno.

Chop the (precooked) chickpeas, then mix all the ingredients (some bread too), make some balls and roll them in the bread * Tritate i ceci (precotti), poi mescolate tutto (un po’ di pane va anche dentro il misto), fate delle polpettine e impanatele nel pane

Fry carefully, for they burn very quickly * Friggete con cautela perché si arrossano molto velocemente

This is one of the most beautiful songs ever written and Mark Knopfler is one of the greatest musician ever. A real Sultan of swing.
