Samperit Resepi Lama



Terima kasih Anis Adlina Amir kerana sudi berkongsi resepi neneknya. Menginjak usia begini, saya suka menyelongkar khazanah nenek moyang mencanai rasa. Sejak akhir-akhir ini saya lebih menjurus kepada kuih-kuih lama. Sedap dan original. Kalau tak mencari dan belajar, seni kuih lama nanti hilang tak berkubur.
Barangkali usaha kecil ini sekadar memeriahkan suasana, sebab ramai orang lain dah buat ; bagi saya sekurang-kurangnya ada sesuatu untuk anak-anak saya merujuk...


1 tin tepung jagung Brown and Polson 450 g
1 tin mentega SCS/buttercup 454 g
7 kuning telur( ayam kampung )
1 1/4 cawan gula; ( ***)

1 1/2 cawan tepung gandum

***Anis tak pasti gula jenis apa; percubaan pertama saya guna gula aisng, kurang manis dan terasa lemaknya, saya suka; kemudian saya cuba lagi gunakan gula pasir yang di kisar dan di ayak; hmm manisnya lebih terasa, tapi tidaklah terlalu manis. ***

Campurkan senua bahan dan uli perlahan-lahan hingga sebati dan lembut. Saya gaulkan gula dan kuning telur , bila sebati baru saya masukkan kedua-dua jenis tepung. Menteganya saya masukkan 3/4 sahaja, kemudian tambah sedikit-sedikit. Ingat pesan Anis , tak payah uli terlalu lama, takut nanti kembang, Bila cukup sebati, saya tekan dengan jari guna nozzle open star. Boleh juga guna acuan samperit yang ada penekan kayu tapi pada saya saiznya nampak gagah sikit. Saya suka samperit comel-comel sebesar syiling 20 sen. Sebiji sesuap. Ayu gitu.. tak payah buka mulut besar-besar...he he he, malu la.. sebab bila masuk mulut tak boleh buka, gebu.....membelai lidah dan tekak.

Dried Fish Curry

This humble dried curry fish is now standing a main menu in wedding reception ( kenduri ) and also restaurant that serve nasi kampung as an option. My version is known as gulai darat ikan kering. Good to go with white rice, stir fried veggies, and of course, sambal belacan and ulam.
dried fish cuts
2 eggplants - cut
3 potatoes - quartered
2 tomatoes -quartered
2 tbsp curry powder ( may use specified mixed powder for dried fish, but the ordinary curry will as great too)
2 cups water
2 tamarind skin
2 cups coconut milk
salt to taste

Saute ingredients:
3 bulb garlics - chopped
5 bulb union - sliced thinly
1 tbsp mixed herbs used in normal curry
small cinnamon stick
1 star anise
curry leaf
Oil

Bring to boil curry powder in 2 cups of water and tamarind skin until fully boiling for 10-15 minutes. Add in coconut milk, dried fish and potatoes. Let it simmers and potatoes turn soft then add in eggplants and tomatoes.
Bring to boil thoroughly.

In another frying pan, heat 2-3 tbsp oil then saute all ingredients until fragrant. Pour everything includes oil to the boiling curry. Take off fire.
