Muli bwanji... that's the greetings that I'll get every morning when I still have a helper at home, back in Malawi. Though I don't understand Chichewa that much, but the least, I know how to greet and answer greetings. Come to think about it, I should have learnt to speak Chichewa... being 7 years in Malawi. What a waste.... anyway, it's history now... a history full of lovely memories.....
Why all of a sudden mama is writing about Malawi... one of the answers will be I miss Malawi! Secondly, yesterday while google-ing, I stumbled upon a blog about Malawi which makes all the memories came rushing back to mind. And as if, on the right flow, when hubby came back from work, he asked me about Malawi photos that we've taken. Sad to say, some of the photos can't be saved when Fatin's laptop went kaput! But My Fotopages is my saviour. I am glad I had it when we were abroad. At least, I have those chosen photos to treasure, together with the story to go with. Hubby was glued to the Malawi entries and the breathtakingly beauty of Malawi's nature.... I guess, I'll join him soon......
Back to the present.... here's the recipe that I had experimented and served for my kids' dinner yesterday night. Saw it in a few blogs and just can't help to try out the recipe myself. And I have no regrets. Thank you to the owner of the recipe and the line of beautiful ladies who had helped promoting this recipe.
Main ingredients :
Beef burger or Chicken Burger
Onion ~ sliced
Tomato ~ sliced
Lettuce ~ sliced
2 cups chicken stock (I just add water and chicken cube)

1 - 2 tablespoons blackpepper ~ coarsely crushed
1/2 onion ~ diced
2 tablespoons sweet soya sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon margarine
3 tablespoons cornflour ~ mix with a bit of water
salt and sugar ~ if necessary
1. Heat oil and add in diced onion. Fry till fragrant. Add in the chicken stock and let it boil.
2. Add in crushed black pepper, sweet soya sauce, margarine, oyster sauce and sugar.
3. Finally pour in the cornflour mixture, a little at a time till you get the desired thickness.
4. Place the beef/chicken burger on a non stick pan and fry till cooked, without oil.
5. Dip the cooked burger into the sauce then take it out and place it on the rolls, layered with lettuce, tomato and onion.
