Chicken Curry

I learned this dish during my stay in Malaysia early this year. I was browsing for a mobile wifi or credit loading site for my Malaysian trip and saw that food post on their blog. Once I got there I tried all sorts of different foods. Exotic for me but they all taste so natural and yummy to me. I can’t wait to get back there. For now, I’ll need to find a local way to satisfy my Malaysian craving.

Try this creamy stew with a mild curry flavor, cooked with coconut milk, potatoes and chicken.

Kratom in Chocolate Rice Pudding

Chocolate Rice Pudding

This particular recipe is actually a takeoff from a traditional breakfast dish served in the country of the Philippines, and bears a resemblance to chocolate oatmeal, with the difference being in the use of rice for the grain. The beauty of this recipe when used as a medium for kratom consumption is in the sweetness of the ingredients as well as the stickiness of the glutinous rice: both help to mask both the kratom’s bitter flavour and unpleasant texture. And of course, it doesn’t hurt that the recipe itself is delicious!

You should start by getting your ingredients together first. You obviously need some powdered kratom, or at least some dried kratom leaf that you can grind in your own kitchen. The finer the grind of the leaf, the better for you, as it makes it that much easier to get down and render less noticeable in the sticky suspension of the chocolate pudding. Prepare just enough for one dose, whatever your dosage is.

You also need to prepare a quarter cup of glutinous white rice, along with some coconut milk (this is available in cans from your local Asian market), regular (cow’s) milk, a cup of white sugar, and a quarter cup of cocoa powder. For best results, you should also prepare some heavy cream, as it makes for a much more decadent and enjoyable result afterwards, if you drizzle the cream on top of the sticky chocolate rice. It looks more appetising that way too.

Preparation of this dish is actually very simple. You need a saucepan and a stovetop or burner. Start by cooking the rice at medium heat, simmering it in two cups of water. Once about a minute has passed in the simmering, you can start adding the rest of the ingredients, starting with the two types of milk (you can choose which one to add first) and then the cocoa, simmering the mixture all the while. It is important to stir as you do this: that way, the flavours are spread evenly.

After 15 minutes of this, you can add the sugar to the mixture. It should have formed a nice, thick pudding now and you can let it reduce further for best results. About 15 more minutes should do.

Afterwards, take it out of the heat and add the kratom powder. Mix it thoroughly, and then drizzle some cream on top. Now you can eat the pudding and enjoy your kratom at the same time.
