Nasi Goreng USA

Bila Abah ke dapur....

We eat outside on the way back from ziarah last nite and Ammer pointed out Nasi Goreng USA on the menu. Since everyone spooned out from Ammers' plate and amazed by it taste, hubby tested it out in our kitchen tonite and the result is....ermmmm...not bad at all. So our new year eve dinner tonite is a simple Carrot Fried Rice with combination of Black Pepper Chicken in sauce, Steamed Chicken Frankfurter and fried eggs...Dash of mayonise and barbecue sauce topping up the frankfurter cut stand out different aroma from ordinary fried rice we usually have in the list. Half way eating we realised that salad and tomatoes are missing! No harm, those vaggies coming handy...

He is a great cook especially for Western, Japanese and Chinese cuisine. No recipi reference as I did. He cook just like that after sampling the food! Through years we don't take turn cooking . The routing comes naturally when there is a kitchen call and highly dependently to our free hours. Something for sure, when Abah is cooking, it is new recipi, special and yummy. Mama and kiddo like it....

Thanks dearly....

Personally I stepped into this cake decorating class with perfect ZERO in skill and knowledge of its utensils. What we learnt from Anis was not just the individual techniques but hands-on to all step by step and ways of handing and forming this delicate icing to each concepts, techniques and its applications. Huh, loads of informative input to me as begimner...

The hardest one for me is fondant. Anis had prepared plain fondant, yet I still had hard time kneading and handling that sticky sugary dough. Maziah came out first with her apple green colour of choice and Wan Mahani chosen baby blue. I had later found out they matched up to the color of shirt they'we wearing...ha ha ha...

Here we go with the" Three Sisters Fondant".

Wan Mahani's lovely girlish baby blue fondant with her white skirting and scallops and pink dots. It goes very well with her pink roses. Mine in the middle, a simply pink squared and white ribbon with one tone plied string footing. Maziah came out gorgeous in green. I like her drape! We suppose to have four, but Zana has to depart earlier due to emergencies...we tought of her along the way, take care Zana...
Here is the close-up.

I learned this recipi from a Korean friend. Definitely this is not of the original from her culture but as one I practiced cooking hands-on, and then enjoyed a great meal together with some new friends. That was then ...I don't like cooking. As time goes by a skill acquired as they said practice makes it perfect.

What had strike my memory with her today - I do not know but I should make this quick simple dish for dinner tonite! ...and post pics later....

Ketupat Pulut Hitam

I will go as far as needed to reach ketupat for Hari Raya.
For years I was taking easy way barter trading ketupat with kuih raya or chocolate cake with all my four sister-in-laws. No shortcut in making own ketupat. Tedious!

The challenging part is wrapping the half-cooked glutinous rice in cone of pre-opened palas palm leave and weaving it in a firm motion to make a triangle shape with a tie knot at the end. I would lost the skill if not faded out over the years.
So I told darling to get palas licuala from night market and I want to make my own ketupat. "He he ... ya ka?". That chicky exclamation burn-up my fire! See's not that bad after all for my first five pieces:).
I prefer the black ketupat for a different taste and a vibrant purple color. Like the white ketupat palas, it best eaten with rendang or serunding. For me eating it on it's own is a reward itself.

600g white glutinous rice
300g black glutinous rice
1 kg thick coconut milk (A)
1.5 kg dilutes coconut milk (B)
5 pandan leave - knotted
50-60 pcs palas leave- opened and straightened up and wipe off the husk.

1. Soak the rice in 2 seperate bowls. The black rice shold take longer soaking that the normal rice. Wash the rice under running water until clean. Drip off excess water in the colander
2. Heat coconut milk (B) with knotted pandan leave and a little salt in large or kuali until it begin to simmers. Add the black rice first and stir countinously until coconut milk desolved.
3. Add the coconut milk (B) and plain glutinous rice and stir continuously until the rice is half cooked. For extra flavour, add boiled salt to the mixture and stir. Leave to cool.
4. Make a cone shape from the palas leave and place a small portion of the cooled glutinous rice and fill up the cone then wave the leave into a triangular shape.
5. Arrange in a big pot and fill up water to immerse all the wrapped ketupat. Boil with ocassional stirring and leave it until cooked. Cooked glutinous rice is usually quite soft when pressed.
Note: to improves ; I use rice cooker to cook by the same method.

Rendang Raya

Special thing of this rendang because it is simple. Another for its prominent balance of hot and sweet taste. My late mother purposely split the dish into two portions and put more sugar in one so kids could take it with ketupat. I remember those yester years helping her pounding ingredients started with the galangal followed by the finely chopped lemon grasss to a very fine paste. Aruah is working on the pre-boiled dried chilles and unions with batu giling....then both hers and my portion is mixed with santan over the stove.
It's easy to cook. No oil, no saute', no kerisik ; just blend and boil. I made this rendang for both Eids during those years studying abroad. Nowadays I had no chance to serve it as a Raya dish as to give away to other fancies and highly demanded rendang made my sister on my side and my MIL.

My Rendang Raya goes well with pulut, not the white rice . I usually made this rendang in a small scale to celebrate the completion of puasa enam. This year, we had it with pulut kuning for my husband's birthday today...Dushhh.... it went out fast before I could snap a photo ....My girl said this rendang is not very special but later seen her scooping another bowl and eat it just like that...he he he...
Rendang Raya

600 gram lean meat
1 inch galangal
20 dried chillies
3 lemon grass
20 small unions
600 ml thick santan
1 tumeric leave
2 pandan leaves
sugar , salt to taste

How to do?...

Diced the lean meat to small pieces.
Clean and cut to small pieces of all ingredient B then blend all together to a fine paste.
Mix together santan and the paste and bring to boil. As the santan begins to bubble, put in the meat ,and tumeric powder. Cover with tumeric leave, pandan leave. Cook on slow fire and stir occasionally. Add in sugar and salt to taste. Note that this is not a dry rendang . It's done when the gravy turns thick and meat is well coated.

Kuih Makmur

Ini adalah salah satu kuih hantaran pertunangan dari pihak cik Abang pada 5 Syawal 14.... Awwww... nostalgia. Bukan di sini cinta ku pada kuih ini bermula...tapi sejak kecil. Bila dewasa, inilah kuih wajib setiap raya. Bukan sedikit, ada lah kira-kira 2 kilo tepung di gentel untuk di bagi pada adik beradik. Tidak termasuk tempahan yang bertambah dari tahun ke tahun. Proses membuatnya leceh. Bermula dari menggoreng tepung sampai terasa licin ditangan macam tepung ubi. Ini lah rahsia makmur yang baik. Saya rela menggoreng sendiri kacang tanah, mengupas kulit dan menumbuk dengan lesung batu untuk inti yang lunak. Saya ingin miliki lesung yang di buat dari kayu jati yang biasa di guna untuk mengisar somtam. Agak nya nanti kerja menumbuk kacang lebih cepat kerana lesung itu besar....

500 gram minyak sapi tulin
1 kg tepung gandum - di goreng tanpa minyak

300 gram kacang tanah - goreng dan tumbuk sampai hancur

Gula aising
Cawan kertas yang kecil

It does Matter......

Copied from Cikgu Sue Suria ( dengan izin)
----- Original Message ----From: sue suria
Subject: : Air tangan orang yang tidak solat

TIME boring2 tak ada email masuk ni jalan2 kat internet ni jumpa article ni dari media muslim...renung2kan lah..nak tambah sikit aja dari article di bawah katanya betapa beratnya solat...tambah sikit berat hanya pada mereka2 yang tidak beriman.....

Air Tangan Orang Yang Tidak Solat

Semua orang tahu bahawa kalau meninggalkan solat tu, adalah dosa besar, dan malahan lebih hina drpd khinzir.. Betapa hinanya kita kalau meninggalkan solat spt yg dikisahkan pd zaman NabiMusa A.S
Begini kisahnya... pada zaman Nabi Musa, ada seorang lelaki yg sudah berumahtangga , dia tak de zuriat lalu, terdetik dlm hati dia (nazar), "kalau aku dpt anak, aku akan minum air kencing anjing hitam." Nak dijadikan cerita, Allah pun kurniakan isteri si lelaki tadi pun hamil dan melahirkan anak. Bila dah dpt anak, laki ni pun runsinglah.. . Dia dah nazar nak kena minum air kencing anjing hitam.
Syariat pd zaman Nabi Musa berbeza dgn syariat yg turun utk umat Nabi Muhammad. kalau umat Nabi Muhammad, nazar benda yg haram, maka tak payah buat, tapi kena denda(dam) atau sedekah.. Tapi, kalau zaman Nabi Musa, brgsiapa bernazar, walaupun haram,tetap kena laksanakan nazar tu..lalu, si lelaki yg dapat anak tu, dgn susah hatinya, pun pegilah bertemu dgn Nabi-Allah Musa.. Dan menceritakan apa yg terjadi ke atas dirinya..lalu, Nabi Musa menjawab bahawa lelaki tu xpayah minum air kencing anjing hitam, tapi akan minum air yg lebih hina dr air kencing anjing hitam.
Nabi Musa perintahkan lelaki tersebut utk pergi menadah air yg jatuh dr bumbung rumah orang yg meninggalkan sembahyang dan minum air tu. lalu, lelaki tu pun senang hati, menjalankan apa yg diperintahkan oleh Nabi Musa tadi...

Lihat.. betapa hinanya org yg meninggalkan solat, sampai dikatakan air yg jatuh dr bumbung rumah dia, lebih hina dr air kencing anjing hitam.. Itu baru air bumbung rumah, belum air tangan lagi.. Menyentuh bab air tangan ni, selalu kita suka makan masakan ibu, isteri kita. Jadi, kepada muslimat sekalian, peliharalah solat, sbb kalau meninggalkan solat (kalau tak uzur), air tangan akan menitik ke dalam basuhan makanan, nasi, dsb..anak-anak, suami pulak yg akan makan makanan yg dimasak. takkan nak biarkan suami & anak2 gelap hati minum air tangan org tinggalkan solat..tak gamakkan? tapi.. lain pulak halnya dgn kita ni.. pagi petang..
mamak!! teh tarik satu, roti canai satu.. ada pulak segelintir tukang masak yg tak solat.. kita pun makan bekas air tangan dia...gelap lah hati kita.. sbb tu liat nak buat keja2 yg baik. Kita patut berhati-hati dengan apa yg kita makan... betapa beratnya amalan solat ni, hatta Allah syariatkan solat kepada Nabi Muhammad melalui Isra' Mikraj, sedangkan kewajipan2 lain memadai diutus melalui Jibril a. s.
Ketika saat Rasulullah nazak, sempat baginda berpesan kpd Saidina Ali (&utk umat Islam) , "As-solah as Solah wa amalakat aimanukum." maknanya,"Solat, solat jgn sekali kamu abaikan dan peliharalah org2 yg lemah di bawah tanggunganmu.
" jadi, sama2lah kita pelihara solat kita, dr segi zahir & batinnya, kerana amalan solatlah amalan yg mula2 akan ditimbang di neraca Mizan kelak

Almond and Carrot Cake

In this recipe, sugar is halves from its original version of my foster mother Maryam O'Keefe. She would served this cake with evening chamomile tea, to me a really "teh kosong" because the taste is very mild at almost no aroma! That's explain why she made this cake very sweet and showered with a layer of sugar paste on top.

80 g whole almond - toasted and pound coarsely
1 stick of carrot / 250 g - grated coarsely
1 orange - grated for its rind only
160 g butter
100 g sugar
5 egg yolk
5 white eggs
40 g castor sugar

200 g all purpose flour
1.5 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate sodium
50 ml milk

Pre heat to 180 C. Cream butter and castor sugar (B) until fluffy. Add in egg yolk one by one and beat well after each addition. Add in sifted flour altenately with milk until mixture is well combined. Put in "A" ingredient and mix well with wooden spatula. Set aside with the mixing bowl covered.
In another dry bowl, beat the egg white and sugar ( preferably with electronic mixer ) until thick. Later blend the white egg into the carrot mixture slowly and combine evenly with wooden spatula.
Pour the mixture into prepared tin cake* and bake for 1 hour or until the surface is firm.

*Prepare tin cake: Layer 7x7 tin cake with aluminium foil and grase lightly with butter. Dust with flour and shake off its excess.

Baulu Lapis

Baulu… antara kuih nostalgia yang paling aku ingat dan tak pernah jemu dengan keunikan rasanya. Aruah mak pakar baulu. Rangup di luar tapi isi dalam nya lembut membelai tekak. Mak buat baulu dengan telur itik, tapi katanya baulu dari telur ayam lebih enak. Seingat aku kecil-kecil lagi sudah diajar menginjut telur dalam pasu besar. Tak pernah pula menyalin resepi. Setelah mak tiada, barulah aku mengerah ingatan membina catatan ini….
Resepi asas baulu boleh di perlbagai. Baulu biasanya di bakar dalam acuan ikan atau pun cermai; jika di kukus menjadi Apon Betawi , di bakar nipis dan di gulung selapis jem menjadi Bualu Gulung aka Swiss Roll. Aku cuba lapiskan antara jem dan buah-buahan kering…saja-saja untuk kelainan…Mak suka…pesannya, lain kali kurangkan gula, baru terasa manisnya buah.



10 biji telur
1 camt esen vanila
2-3 helai daun limau purut muda
secubit kapur makan
3 cawan gula
3 cawan tepung gandum
Jem nenas. / strawberi
Halwa kundur,/prune, di hiris nipis.

Cara-cara membuatnya

Masak jem dengan sedikit gula dan air hingga cair , agak-agak mudah untuk sapuan. Simpan dalam bekas pada suhu bilik.
Goreng tepung gandum hingga ringan. Sejukkan kemudian ayak.
Ramas telur dengan daun limau purut dan kapur – tapis dengan penapis santan.
Masukkan gula & vanila ke dalam telur. Pukul hingga naik 3 kali ganda.
Masukkan tepung, kacau rata.
Lenser bekas dengan minyak. Ratakan adunan dalam bekas. Bakar hingga kekuningan. Angkat. Sapukan jem. Tuang lapisan kedua. Ulangi proses hingga habis.
