Having recently purchased a Wonderbag, I thought it would be nice to cook a meal for the LIFESAVER team on a Friday afternoon.
I wanted to make my colleagues aware of the benefits of the Wonderbag and how it works really well with LIFESAVER’s ethos about empowering people. The Wonderbag is designed to empower families by reducing their fuel bills and freeing up time that would normally be spent around a stove, and LIFESAVER technology reduces both time spent collecting water and nursing poorly children.
With the Wonderbag, I received a cooking book with lots of recipes and chose to make a very simple mild chicken curry (as I love curries),
Given the growing size of the LIFESAVER team, I had to triple the recipe, so purchased a gargantuan amount of chicken, which just squeezed into the rather small pan I brought from home. I really enjoy cooking, and tend to choose very long recipes with about 7 spices in them normally so the simplicity of this recipe helped and allowed me to even do a little work.
With the curry now ready to be sealed inside the Wonderbag, I was a little nervous about how it would turn out. Despite the Wonderbag being a heat-insulated bag, I was still worried that the curry would lose its temperature.
One tip I did get from our chairman who has his own Wonderbag was that you should line the base of the Wonderbag with a thick tea towel, as the base of your pan might be rather hot and could burn the inside of the bag.
The outcome will appear in another blog along with my colleagues thoughts on the Wonderbag. So far so good and the food was wonderful!
