I only have a hotplate and a rice cooker.

Has anyone got some exciting suggestions for things I can cook?

In reply to frankcp87: Tonight i am having Beef in Ale Stew, i will be enjoying this with a nice glass of Red.

In reply to Little Brew:
That sounds amazing! I'm in China, so there is no ale, no red wine, and even beef is hard to come by!

Really i'm just craving fish and chips!

But looking for an reasonable alternative!

Can you get hold of one of those cheap 12ltr Halogen Ovens? More options for roasting, grilling, baking etc? Versatile bit of kit! Pork/lamb chops are delicious done in it!

In reply to dek: I have been very tempted by those mini ovens, but generally I spent more time on trips than I do at home so I can't justify it.

In reply to frankcp87: vegetable soup - I'm having leek and potato tonight. Don't know what veg availability is like, but there's a raft of possibilities. Tricky thing might be getting hold of something resembling a European stock?

In reply to toad: Yeah no pre-made veg or meat stocks either. But you can still make some tasty soups! Curries are pretty easy as well.

Any other novel ideas?

No no no! Surely in China and India, the stock take-away option has to be to order an English?

In reply to The Big Sender: Chinese food is all oil, msg and shattered bones. Especially in my province.
You're right there is awesome Chinese food in parts. But every province is like a different country.

Ordering an "English" is what we do, but it's pricey, especially when you can eat noodles for 40p!

Tis the season to eat salted/dried meat; every house round here has fish and various legs, birds or organs dangling out of every window. Quite tasty though.

surely you could make something western though all you need for fish and chips is a big pan of oil and a decent heat source?

I guess it is getting hold of what my OH calls "big lumps of meat" that is the problem
