I learnt about "Dude Food Recipe" just last week when I was watching Masterchef and I wanted to try it straight away as it looked yum. Dude food recipe is a simple and delicious recipes that breaks all the traditional norms of cooking by mixing haphazard flavouring tastes together, which usually is eaten by hungry students during college days when they are so tired to cook or make anything complex, but would still want to have something yummy.

The recipe showed in Masterchef was called "Sloppy Joe with Braised Pork Ribs, Onion Rings, Chipotle Kewpie and Kewpie Slaw". It is a complex recipe but I wanted to make it a bit simple and a bit spicy to avoid adding too much oil or fat in my dish. So I added some ingredients and deleted some from the original recipe. Along with that,I don't like eating pork, so I used lamb. Here I come with some changes from original version of the recipe. It is still so yummy and my dude really enjoyed it.

The crunch coming from the onion rings and the softness of the delicious meat makes this recipe fun to eat. I don't have to tell that this kind of food should be eaten less but ,yes, should definitely be eaten once in a while to give a different taste to our taste buds and to have some fun sometimes. We do deserve it sometimes, don't we? Overall, my recipe is more healthier anyway!

Instructions For Making Onion Rings:

  • Mix flour, spices, salt and soda water and make a thick batter. Now add the onion rings in a way so that the batter is just covering onions.
  • Heat the oil in deep frying pan in high medium heat.
  • Drop the onion coated onion rings one by one to the oil and cook until brown in each side. Remember before you add the onions to the oil, oil should be hot enough so that it brings the sound frying sound as soon as you add the onion to the oil and the onions should also come up to the top and don't stay at the bottom. If they stay at the bottom, oil is not hot enough. It should start producing bubbles if the oil is hot enough. But be careful to not make it too hot. Fry until onion rings are are brown enough on both side.
  • Drain the oil and put the rings in the paper towel.
