How to Make Egg Roll- (Nigerian Dumplings)

Hey guys welcome back to my blog...  So I just got back from work and cannot be bothered to make dinner, I decided to make hubby and I some Nigerian Egg roll since he loves boiled eggs and a lady deserves a break from the Kitchen sometimes right lol ;-)

 I had all the ingredients at home (which makes it easy), so I popped into my kitchen and got everything together and made some Egg rolls served with some nice sweet Tea lol.

Check the video out here-

Ingredients:-
Self raising flour or Plain Flour
Hard Boiled Eggs
1 teaspoon of salt to taste
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablepoon of Baking powder
5 tablespoons of Butter
1 glass of lukewarm water
Vegetable oil for deep frying

Method:-

Sieve the flour into a big bowl, add the baking powder and salt. Mix well and add the butter, use fingers to mix thoroughly until it becomes crumbly. Add the water, mix well until thick and in a ball form. Once thick, roll with a dough roller and section with a dough cutter or bowl to make round cuts on the rolled out dough.





Place the egg in the centre of the round cuts  and Close the dough.

Pre heat your pan with the vegetable oil and allow to heat for at least 10 minutes on low heat. Pop the egg roll in and fry until golden brown. By the way I don't like my Egg roll burnt, I like it lightly fried (golden brown).



And there you have it, easy weesey :-)

Restaurant Review- The Star Chalton Bedfordshire


So I had the opportunity to visit this restaurant; its has been on my radar for a while and I finally had the chance to visit. This time I visited with 4 of my colleagues around lunchtime on a Friday.
I booked a table for 5 about a week prior and instantly got a confirmation email and text message.


So here's my verdict below:-


Ambience

As soon as we got to the door, there was no-one at the bookings section, so we had to wait a few seconds before we were approached by a gentleman who took us straight to our table. The great thing is we had a booking so a table was already allocated to us which came in very handy as it was just a bit busy. 

Here's a cross-sectional picture of the area we sat at the end of the restaurant, a bit close to the garden area, so we had a good view.





Food

I opted out on the Starter as I'm more of a Pudding type of girl and plus 3 courses would be too much for me.

So I had Steak & Sweet Potato Fries with some onion rings and side leaf garnish.



As you can see my colleague and I were clearly caught in the moment, having a really nice time at the Star...



One of my colleagues had Mash Potato with Lamb shank and veggies which he really really enjoyed.


Another person had the Veggie Burger with Sweet Potato Fries


Here's Steak, Bacon & Cheese with some French fries that my other colleague had.




For dessert- I had the Millionaires Cheesecake



Overall I enjoyed my time there, I cannot really fault the restaurant but the only thing is we went on Friday afternoon and I had to change my order as they didn't have ribs which was quiet disappointing.
