I doubled the ingredients as 2 handful is not much..(indirectly telling that my hand is quite small and cute but fat)..haha...nice for afternoon tea, breakfast or supper...thank you the owner for this recipe!
2 handful of channa dhall (soaked overnight)
1/2 big onion diced
bird eyes chillies/ dried chillies/red chillies/green chillies-sliced thinly(I used dried chillies)
curry leaves sliced thinly
1/2 cube ikan bilis stock
1/2 tsp fennel -(I used powder)
a pinch or two tapioca flour(to 'glue' the mixture-not too much- if mixture can be easily formed then no need this)
Dry blend or pound dhall (no water). Don't have to be too fine. In a bowl mix dhall, onions, curry leaves,ikan bilis stock, fennel, egg and tapioca flour.
Add in salt to taste and MSG. Mix the mixture and make a handful size balls till finish. Deep fried in hot oil and making sure one side has reached its crispiness then turn or else it will break.

First of all, the reasons why I blogged about food cause I love to eat..love to cook..love to see my kids and family finishing whatever I cooked...the joy is just unexplainable...I am still learning as I speak...by opening this blog, doesn't mean that I am an expert or a professional in cookery...
By having this blog too I would like to share what I have done and experience in cooking, making and baking certain things...the TRIAL AND ERROR of cooking (as what I wrote in my profile)..is what I would like to share with you guys....sometimes, it really boost your moral when friends and visitors comments on your 'works'...there goes the same, if somebody, commented on what you did not succeed, adding to leaving an 'advice' without introducing yourself, it just make your moral low....
Maybe now I understand why and how Kakasma felt, when she suddenly wanted to stop blogging...well I almost felt the same too yesterday...after being coaxed and advice by my family members..I've decided to 'get up' from my 'bad reality dreams' and took the 'challenge'..and would like to proof to 'somebody' that he/she is wrong!!!!(Whoever you are)...
Definitely, those words I will remember till I die!...but I will take that as a 'positve' advice and will improve myself in whatever I do...thank you again (whoever you are)...

Last entry for today...made this yesterday night..as usual for Mr Hubby's breakfast..recipe here ...Coincidentally, I saw Ika and Hana also had almost the same kuih..hehehe..maybe its the 'International Kuih Bakar Day' today...
Basically the mould for this kuih bakar I bought in JB the other day.. I bought 2 kuih bakar moulds, 1 no. 10" spring form , a 8x 4 x 4 inch loaf pan, a few muffin cups, a 7" chiffon cake mould and a few cooking books...spent about RM$100++ for those things....
My next 'target' is to get the fondant roller with patterns, chocolate patterns mould for cake decorations (Tan See Fong's products) and some others lah..
