Eggless Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffin


It is passed midnight now and my kitchen is smeeling a fresh muffin aroma. I was about to go off to lalaland but, look at this ripe banana, seducing me its sweat heavenly....
I grab 3 bananas, mashed it out,
add in 3/4 cup of corn oil
and 1 cup of milk ; then blend them together.
On the dry ingridient ; it was a cup of sugar I added to 3 cups of flour shifted with 1tsb baking powder and 1 tsp of bicarbonate soda mix in another bowl. I was later poured in the liquid into this bowl and mixed them altogether with wooden spatula.

The batter was lumpy but I remembered Nigella Lawson said lumpy batter make best muffin! Add in a handfull of chocolate chip, then spooned them into the prepared muffin cases. Sprinkle the chocolate rice on top and then bake until I saw my muffins are dark and risen.
My muffin is well risen and springy, but it has a little coarse surface though the inside is soft and nice. While doing the clean up, then I remembered, I did not put any egg!
Hahaha.. this is my newly ventured muffin.. the EGGLESS one!

Ikan:
Bersihkan ikan dan rendam dalam campuran air asam dan garam ( asam keping/asam jawa/ limau nipis dan garam utk hilangkan bau yang kurang enak).
Cuci dan toskan, kemudian lulurkan garam halus dan kunyit secukupnya.
Goreng tapi usah sampai garing.

Tumbuk KASAR cili dengan belacan , garam, 3 biji bawang merah dan dua biji bawang putih.

Mayang halus lebihan bawang merah dan putih kemudian tumis hingga layu. Masukkan sambal yang di tumbuk , sekaligus dengan garam, gula. Bila sambal garing, masukkan petai yang sudah dihiris halus. Masukkan sos ikan ( nampla) dan perahkan limau kasturi. Tambah garam gula mengikut rasa. Tambah air supaya sambal yang lebih cair.

Bila sudah masak, masukkan ikan yang telah di goreng, biarkan dalam kuali hingga sebahagian dr kuah di serap ikan. Balikkan ikan supaya sama rata menyerap kuah sambal.
