Hi Danielle, You could just try plain beef fillet as a substitute, it will work a treat! Best Johanna Sent from my iPhone
Hi sam, I am pretty sure arrowroot would work too but I havent tried it before. Yes plain flour should work also, it might make it cheesier but thats just a guess. Try it and let me know please! Jx Sent from my iPhone
Wow... You are very lucky indeed! I wish I had passion fruit in my backyard...or the balcony in my case! Had one in London but for obvious reasons the fruit never ripened! All the best J Sent from my iPhone

Kit, the recipe for the veg works really well with tenderstm broccoli or broccoli florets too, just steam a little in advance, then stir fry as per instruction! Sugar snap beans and spinach also make a lovely alternative! Sent from my iPad

i MISS kohlrabi so much! in 11 years of living in london i only found it once, and 3 meagre pieces way past their prime sold for an outrageous 10 pounds (not to me, of course). nobody in england knows what to do with it, they had a feature on it in an english cookery magazin, where ALL recipes were using it boiled or cooking in some way or other. i still think julienned or grated with lemon juice and sour cream is one of the best ways of enjoying it.
trying out various ways of cooking broccoli on picky eaters (children), i can say that cooking method and time make a massive difference. overcook the broccoli and its flavour will be too intense, give it a mere 7 minutes for it still to be crunchy and it retains more of its nutritional qualities and WILL be eaten even by the fussiest. favourite way of doing broccoli is simply to roast it in the oven with a splash of olive oil, sliced garlic and sliced red chilli - however much you can take. i remember the obove dish from my childhood in austria, albeit with cauliflower (cheaper). also, the butter didn't get the benefit of browning, which would have made it more palatable to me ;-)

Yin, I LOVE Asian food, never grow tired of it, no wonder, as there is sooo much variety! I cant wait to explore all the restaurants go shopping at the wet markets, do come cookery classes - it will inspire me no end! I am sure we will have a most fantastic time in this wonderful corner of the world - and I look forward to lots of travelling as well!
oh, i am sure it will in due time, joanne - how lovely that you met jeanne, yes, its been a long time, probabyl 3-4 years, right? how is the family? you know i met ilva a few months back and had a wonderful time, too, i love these blogging encounters, i hope i will meet many here as well. i havent been at the raffles, but my former boss has invited me there the next time he comes over, for a proper singapore sling and bitching about the old days ;-)) wishing you all the best johanna
youbetter get a list going, jeanne, i also owe you quite a few brunch dishes and cakes... oh itll be sooo much fun t cook together in spore... xx
Hi Jeremy, your comment comes very timely, I recently started a de-cluttering project around here as well be moving to singapore shortly - and guess what i found in the back of one cupboard? a bottle of elderflower syrup from way back when... same recipe, no fridge, and it still kept just fine, it still tastes delicious! i was wandering along a hedhe of beautiful elderflowers the other day, they smell gorgeous! i was tempted to pick them, but i am leaving for spain tomorrow, so i couldnt have made the syrup... and i also kind of want to minimise what we move to asia, so preserving even more wouldnT have been the greatest. i wonder if i can find it over there? anyway, thanks for your comment i hope ill see you around johanna

Hi there, you could substitute fresh horseradish, or just use a chilli paste of your taste... itll be slightly different, but still offer a pleasant kick! johanna

absolutely, kit! if i can say one thing: do NOT buy the powder that you mix into your own paste... it tastes like ground cardboard (not that ive ever ground cardboard, im just imagining!) instead of the teriyaki, i am sure any good soy sauce would do if you cant locate it! xx

Cooking time needs to be adjusted to the size of the prawns... Will make a note in the recipe!

hi annie, I honestly dont remember how many this makes - the original recipe says serves 4-6 but thats hardly helpful when serving as fingerfood. Itll obviously depend on how little or big you roll the koefte, but i would estimate that you could get at least 40 out of this. if prpearing ahead (definitely possible), store in an airtight container in the fridge, let come to room temperature before rolling. the mass might have gone a bit dry, i would suggest reviving it with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice and water in the same proportions as in the recipe. I hope this helps! kind regards johanna
