Cooking 101: Halal Carbonara

 

carbonara halal

There are a lot of times that you want to eat something. However, you can never get a taste of it for the fact that it contains pork.

Today, we are going to remake the famous carbonara into a halal one. This recipe is from Maysa of Bhibik ya NehNeh. You can check her blog for more halal recipes.

Get ready and have the taste of carbonara in just a few minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of spaghetti noodles (1 box)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 strips of turkey/chickeb bacon cut into small strips
  • 4 garlic cloves sliced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese or Parmigiano-Reggiano (plus more for serving)
  • Fresh ground black pepper
Procedure:
  • Boil pasta (8 to 10 minutes) in unsalted water. Do not throw away the stock.
  • In a bowl mix together the egg, Parmesan cheese and black pepper.
  • In a pan (this is where halal comes in) saute 2 garlic cloves cut into slices and 5 strips of turkey bacon cut into strips into a little amount of olive oil.(Side note: The real carbonara doesn’t have garlic, but it tastes better with it.)
  • Once the bacon is cooked and crispy, drain all the fat.
  • Add about 1/2 cup of the pasta stock to the hot pan
  • Add the pasta noodles.
  • Turn off the heat (very important otherwise the eggs will scramble).
  • Pour in the egg mixture and stir with a wooden spoon. The egg and cheese should form a creamy sauce, don’t cook it for too long or it will become dry.
  • Serve it by sprinkling some more turkey bacon, shaved Parmesan cheese and some more black pepper…the black pepper makes the dish.
Done!
