Recipe for cooking at home

  1. Rice (not rinsing) pour into a saucepan with boiling and salted water (200 ml). After boiling again, reduce the heat and cook the porridge for about 10 minutes with a slight boil. Remove the pan from the heat, cover and wrap with a towel, leave the rice for 20-30 minutes to swell. & Nbsp ; By that time, prepare all the other ingredients.
  2. Eggs should be poured in cold water, put on fire, cook for about 10 minutes after boiling. Drain the boiling water, pour boiled eggs with ice water and leave to cool for several minutes.
  3. Cucumber rub on a large grater and squeeze off excess liquid. Onion peeled and cut into small pieces, folded on a sieve and scalded with boiling water (to get rid of the bitterness). Grate the cheese on a small grater, rinse and shred all the greens (leave a pair of twigs for ornaments). Cut the olives in very thin and long slices, cut one olive in half.
  4. Open the canned fish, drain the butter and mash the sardines with a fork. & Nbsp; Cool the eggs into squirrels and yolks, grate the squirrels a large grater and put aside until the side, grate the yolks on a fine grater or mash with a fork and set aside on a plate.
  5. Put the rice on a plate flat and give it the shape of a monkey’s face, as in the photo . Lubricate the rice with mayonnaise and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
  6. Next layer lay the mashed fish, grease it with mayonnaise and sprinkle with scalded onions, again grease with mayonnaise. Lay out the grated cucumber, lightly cover it with mayonnaise and evenly cover the surface with grated proteins. Start the salad dressing: lay the whole salad surface with ground yolks, leaving only the place for the eyes (you can put the glasses there) . Lay out the contours of the eyes, mouth and ears with thin slices of olives, put half of the olives in the center of the eyes and put small points on them with mayonnaise.
  7. At the bottom of the dish, put a couple of lettuce leaves, put one olive between them (this is a bow) and decorate the monkey’s ears with parsley. It is advisable to put a salad in the form of a monkey for a couple of hours in the refrigerator before impregnation to the table. & Nbsp;
