General Discussion / Uj'alayi recipe
« on: July 24, 2019, 06:06:24 AM »
Greetings, hungry Mandalorians. I've been busy slaying some mythosaurs recently, but now I'm here with the promised Uj'alayi a.k.a. Uj cake.

What we need?
For the syrup:
2/3 cup of honey
2/3 cup of syrup (I use combination of vanilla and maple syrup)
1 tbspn of crystalline or powder sugar
2 teaspoons of butter

For the basic mixture:
2 and 1/2 cup of roughly chopped nuts/seeds (I use whatever I have - hazelnuts, walnuts, pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds, peanuts)
2,5-3 cups of dried or candied fruit (raisins, cranberries, pineapple, mango, peaches, citrus peel), chopped to small pieces
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1 pinch of fresh ground pepper, 1 pinch of curry
2 teaspoons of ground ginger
3/4 cup of flour

Prepare a cake pan - put a baking paper on the bottom and cream it with butter as well as the sides of the cake pan.
Take all the nuts, dried & candied fruits, spices and flour and mix it well in a bowl. Make sure there are no pieces of fruit sticked to each other.
Start pre-heating your oven to 150-170°C (don't know how much it is in °F).
Put the honey, syrup, sugar and butter in a pot and put it on a medium heat. Wait until it starts to boil. Once it reaches the soft-ball stage, pour it immediately into the mixture of nuts, fruit, flour and spices and stir it carefully and quickly, so all the flour and spices are absorbed and everything is covered in the syrup.
Then put it all into the prepared cake pan and press it down firmly with moistened fingers.
Put it in oven and bake it for about 45 minutes.
After the 45 minutes take it out from the oven and let it sit for another 40-50 minutes. After that your cake is ready for serving.

Be careful: It is VERY sweet and EXTREMELLY filling. It usually takes me few days to eat it.
Enjoy your meal!

In the following days I'll tell you how to prepare the Bilerat stew.

General Discussion / Cassius tea recipe
« on: June 23, 2019, 05:58:35 AM »
After a short (longer than expected) delay, I come with another recipe.

Today, we're gonna make a very simple and very healthy drink known as the Cassius tea.

Trying to figure out, which tree on our planet could be the famous Cassius tree, took me some time, but after discussing it with few friends, we agreed on using florets of Tilia cordata, known as the small-leaved lime.

So what will we need? Just some amount of the florets of small-leaved lime - the amount depends on how much of tea you want to make, and some water.
For this time, I just gathered about two fistfuls of florets to make about 1,25-1,5 liters of tea.

When you have your florets (including a long bright-green leaf connected to it), wash them in a cold water and after that put them in some bowl, pot, jar, anything. Set the water to boil and pour it into the bowl, pot, jar.... containing the florets. Let it lye for at least 5 minutes (I usually let it lye for 20 minutes) and then you are free to distribute the tea into your favorite glasses, mugs, cups or whatever you prefer. I use my hand-made, battle-worn, metal cup.

"In time for tea. Come join me. Made with the florets of a Cassius tree. It's good for your health."
―Pre Vizsla

In the following recipe, we will prepare the famous Uj cake!

General Discussion / Ne'tra gal and Kri'gee recipe
« on: May 28, 2019, 04:34:42 AM »
Greetings everyone.
After some experiments I come up with two recipes for Mandalorian beer.
First of all, I'm Czech, so my English might not be perfect; secondly, these recipes are not very difficult, since it is only half-homemade. We will make 1 liter of each beer plus some extra kvas for drinking, since it is good for your digestive system.

What will we need?
For both Ne'tra gal and Kri'gee we will prepare a slightly modified kvas, we will need:
3 loaves of dark bread (I prefer rye and sunflower seed bread)
1 grapefruit
100 grams (really don't know how much it is imperial units) of powdered or crystal sugar
100-150 grams of honey
2 fistfuls of dried cranberries
1 tablespoon of dry yeast
about 3 liters of water

Additionally, for Ne'tra gal we need:
0,4 liters of Baltic Porter beer (I use our Czech Primátor Double 24°, which has 10,5 % of alcohol and fits perfectly to the Ne'tra gal definition of sticky-sweet)
0,4 liters of any dark beer, the stronger and darker, the better. (I used Black Lager, but I guess Imperial Stout would be better)

For Kri'gee we need:
0,8 liters of IPA (I used 2 Czech regular IPA's, but Imperial IPA a.k.a. American Double IPA would be the best, since they are bitter and strong)

Let's start making the Kvas:
Put all the water in a pot and put it on a cook-range. Meanwhile, put the bread loves into a toaster and turn them black, literally. They should be as burnt as Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen or Anakin Skywalker. Wait until the water in the pot starts to boil and then remove the pot from the cook-range. While the water is still hot, put in the Anakinized bread, a slice of grapefruit (0,5mm to 1cm thick) and a fistful of dried cranberries. Cover the pot and let it rest for at least 3 hours.
After some time, we're about to filter what we have in the pot. You can remove the grapefruit and bigger pieces of bread with a spoon or your beskad. And filter the rest by pouring the content of the pot into another one. Use a strainer with a clean cotton napkin in it, so it filters out all the remaining mess from bread.
After you succesfully filtered the liquid from one pot to another, add the honey and sugar, mix it well (the liquid should be still warm, so it will go fine), then add a fistful of dried cranberries and a tablespoon of yeast. Cover the pot tightly with a food wrap/foil/clingfilm (however you call it) and let it rest in a room-temperature for at least 4 hours.
After some time you should see bubbles comings towards the surface - this means the yeast is happily multiplying and the drink is alive! Now it really depends on you how much you want the Kvas to ferment. I prefer 5-8 hours.
After the fermentation process has been running for some time, it's time to bottle your Kvas. Prepare empty, water-washed bottles, a funnel and a cotton napkin. Pour all the fermented Kvas into bottles through the funnel with a cotton napkin inside.

The rest is VERY easy.

For Ne'tra gal mix 0,2 liters of the Kvas with 0,4 liters of Baltic Porter and 0,4 liters of Dark beer. You'll get 1 liter of strong, black, sticky-sweet beer.

For Kri'gee mix 0,2 liters of the Kvas with 0,8 liters of some IPA. You'll get 1 liter of bitter ale.

(Of course you can experiment with the ratio of all the ingredients to adjust it to your taste)

And enjoy the rest of the Kvas, it will have a fruity bitter taste and, if done well, lots of bubbles and will help your organism a lot. :)

Hope I helped and you would like your very own Mandalorian beer.

Greetings everyone. I am Adam, a.k.a. Rejad Urruz. I'm a big Mandalorian fan from the Czech Republic and in present days I'm mostly interested in experimenting with Mandalorian cuisine and writing Star Wars fan-fiction with my friend. I am currently finishing my attempt to make a real-life Ne'tra gal, so you can expect me to share my experience this weekend. :)
