Ayam Gereng (Indonesian Fried Chicken) Recipe
1 medium chicken
1/2 cup tamarind water
1 tbsp clear soya sauce
1 a pinch of chilli powder
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground coriander
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 a pinch of turmeric
The name means simply 'fried chicken', and that is all it is. The
marinade, however, gives it a characteristically Indonesian flavour.
Marinate the pieces of chicken in this mixture for 2 hours, turning
them from time to time. Strain the chicken, so that the marinade
drips away from it. Then deep-fry the portions, 4 or 5 at a time.
Chicken fried in this way is excellent with Nasi Goreng. [Nasi
Goreng is fried rice. S.C.] Makes 4 servings. From "Indonesian Food
and Cookery", Sri Owen, Prospect Books, London, 1986." ISBN

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading
Don't trust food labeling that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. Quite a few are only slightly less and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.
* Use soya flour or soy baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baking, substitute soya flour or a bake mix like Atkins baking mix. In many cases, you can change your most popular recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these low carbohydrate alternatives.

The nutrients called 'flavonoids' found in these foods are believed to be helpful in preventing cancer.
Nutritionalists studying the medical effects of flavonoids believe they could have numerous other health giving properties, including anti-allergic and antiplatelet capabilities.
The majority of these also have a low calorie count, so you should add them to your weight loss regime.
