Ramly Burger to the rescue!

"(A)bang! Burger Daging Special Satu!"

Yes that's me shouting at the Ramly burger stall owner....I want my burger 'special' which means it comes with the egg wrapped around the patty. Yum.

Somedays, I just make these burgers at home using frozen Ramly burger patties. Yes am too lazy to make my own patties...for now. So for a quick meal and whenever we don't feel like eating local food....Ramly to the rescue.

What you need:
Ramly burger patties - no need to thaw just fry straight from freezer
Burger Buns
Chilli Sauce + Mustard

What to do:

Fry the frozen patties in a non-stick pan with a little bit of oil

Fry bull's eye - my other half likes the yolk runny but I fry mine thoroughly

Wash lettuce leaves

Toast burger buns

Assemble all together. Slap on sauce of choice ( in our case it's Chilli garlic sauce and some mustard). Done.

You can of course add tomatoes and onions and whatever else you prefer. But we like it like this.

It's a quick alternative to local food for dinner and pretty fast to perpare too.

Vermicelli Aglio Olio

This is a a simple recipe. It's easy to prepare and I love it.
Serves: 2

What you need:
Vermicelli - cook pasta till soft - for 2 persons I usually cook half a packet
Sliced turkey ham
Sliced button mushrooms
Chopped garlic - 5 cloves
Maggi Chicken Concentrate
Olive Oil

Black Pepper
Chili Flakes

What to do:
I heat up like 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil and add the chopped garlic and fry for 30 sec. I add in the turkey ham and button mushrooms and quickly stir for another 30 sec. I add in the cooked pasta and 3 tablespoons of chicken concentrate. Toss the pasta and be sure to coat the pasta in the concentrate. I quickly sprinkle some black pepper and chili flakes and toss again. Serve hot.

Useless facts:
1) You can add any type of cold cuts you like (ex: salami, pork ham, french ham)
2) Button mushrooms - I usually buy the canned type already sliced. For 2 persons I only use half of can amount and keep the rest for something else.
3) Chili flakes will give it an extra kick. I collect the chili flakes packets from Domino's and empty into my own spice bottle.

Helpful Hints
1) Pasta must be slightly wet from the olive oil.
2) The chicken concentrate is what will flavour the dish. This is not authentic Olio be warned. This is the tasty version.
3) You can use spaghetti, instead of vermicelli

...but I like the thinner version. Yum:)
