1. Pancakes (Breakfast meal)
We propose it for breakfast. We love to cook pancakes, don’t we? You will always spend a great time making this lovely and without wasting too much time.
Ingredients you need:
• 125g (40z) plain flour
• Pinch of salt.
• 1 medium egg.
• 300ml (1/2 pint) milk.
• Oil or butter to fry.
You just need to sift the flour and salt, make a well in the middle and whisk in the egg. Whisk in the milk, then leave to stand for 20 mins. After that heat a pan and coat lightly with oil or butter. Add a ladleful of batter and tilt the pan to coat thinly. The last step is to fry the pancake for 1-2 minutes until golden, carefully turning once.
2. Thai Mango Chicken (1 lunch meal).
This Thai recipe is absolutely delicious and so easy to cook. The key is the mango sauce, you just need to place all the ingredients in a food processor and voila! You get it!
Mango sauce ingredients:

• 1 Tablespoon brown sugar.

After you mix every ingredient do a taste test for salt, spice and sweetness. The goal for this sauce is to reach a balance of sweet, sour, spicy, and salty.
Once you have the sauce ready it’s time to add it to a wok with the chicken and red pepper slices, stir well and bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer (medium-low heat) and cover. Stirring occasionally to keep from sticking, continue cooking until chicken is well done.
Finish the dish with a sprinkling of cashews and fresh coriander.
