I made this recipe yesterday evening and this morning it was all finished. I didn’t even get the chance to take a picture, it is that popular here at home.
This sambal, or sauce, is delicious as a side dish with nasi goreng (Indonesian fried rice) or on a warm baguette.
You can make it as spicy as you like of course but I like mine hot!
200-250 gr chicken livers
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2-3 table spoons of sweet kecap manis. I buy mine in Chinatown.
1 chopped Scotch bonnet pepper, or you favourite chilli sauce
First cook the chicken livers in water, until they are done. Drain the water and let them cool off. Meanwhile peel, cook and mash the potatoes. Cut the livers in small pieces. Heat oil in a pan and fry the onions. Add the garlic cloves, stir and fry for a minute or two. Then add the livers, mashed potatoes, the kecap manis and the chopped Scotch bonnet or chili sauce and stir well for about 1-2 minutes.
To add a spicy touch I added the Ribman’s Holy Fuck sauce yesterday.
I spend my Sunday morning selling bread and dishes from my home country Suriname, in London.
I’m a huge fan of London’s food markets and I’ve always wanted to take part in one, and sell my own home made food.
So that’s just what I did yesterday and although it wasn’t a big market with loads of visitors, it was nice getting out there and worth hearing people telling me how they loved my exotic cooking.
It was a very small market with a group of enthusiasts who enjoy baking, cooking and gardening and wanted to share and sell their home made and home grown goods with others.
I’d love to be on more markets and this was a good place to start!
Yesterday I kept it low key and made some ginger beer and baguettes with sweet kecap manis chicken, spicy cod and pom.
Pomtayer is a root grown in Suriname, similar to cassava. And as far as I know it’s only eaten in Suriname and the Netherlands. A party isn’t a party until there is pom in my home country. I regularly make this delicious oven dish with pomtayer, tomatoes, chicken and spices and the result is pom! Delicious with vegetables and rice, or on a baguette.
The Londoners who tasted pom yesterday found it absolutely lovely, so that’s a good thing cause I’d love for everyone in the UK to eat pom!
Next stop for me market wise is Mrs.Marmitelover’s underground farmers market on the 4th and 5th of November! Do come too, it’s going to be loads of fun. As it is bonfire weekend there will be bonfires, fireworks, food, booze and music. And I’ll be cooking delicious Surinamese dishes, including pom!
And this Wednesday I have an important meeting with a market organiser. Fingers crossed that he likes my food!
