The Road to Mandalay

We're off to Burma with the cocktail "A Night in Old Mandalay". Perhaps this is something Rudyard Kipling had a taste for?

1 shot Bacardi
1 shot Appleton Estate Light rum
1 shot Orange Juice
1/2 shot lemon juice
3 shot ginger ale
1 twist lemon peel

In a shaker half-filled with ice cubes, combine the Bacardi, Appletons, orange juice, and lemon juice. Shake well. Strain into a highball glass almost filled with ice cubes. Top with the ginger ale. Garnish with the lemon twist.

Delicious Burmese Split Pea Fritters. Nothing like a bit of deep frying.

1 cup split peas

2 medium onions, chopped finely

2 red chilies, chopped finely

1/2 teaspoon turmeric, ground

Salt to taste

Cooking oil for deep frying

Sliced onion and lemon wedges to garnish

Fill a pot with water and soak the split peas overnight for at least 6 hours. Drain, and use a food processor to blend the soaked split peas to a smooth paste. Mix in other ingredients except the cooking oil and garnishing. Form small balls from the mixture and flatten to about 1 cm thickness.

Heat a wok with the cooking oil and fry the fritters one at a time. Fry until it is golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper. Serve with the garnishing.
