Marsya tak nak balik..hehe

Cross over on Thursday night. Not much photos that I snapped, but took this satay that we prepared from Singapore to be barbequed on Friday night.

Ikan Siakap Bakar

Today menu was this Grilled Sea bass...imagine now then got the chance to update, during the day, my kids + me were fighting over this computer...even Marsya!!!..Pantang lepa, or if I need to get something, when I came back, there sure to be somebody warming up the seat... basically they wanted to play games lah..

Itupun sometimes I just 'cut que' and told them, a while only I need to go to my blog...and that's when I leave messages in other peoples blog..hahaha..I made this grilled fish using the recipe that I ever used before. I put up here again.
Ingredients:-
1-2 sea bass-(ikan siakap)
1 packet chili paste (with vinegar)-please estimate to how many fish cooked-(chili boh yang ada cuka- mengikut sukatan berapa banyak ikan digunakan)

Method:-
Clean and wash fish as usual and wipe dry with kitchen towel.
Heat oil in wok and saute garlics, laksa leaves and chili paste till oil goes up the surface. Add in coconut milk, salt, sugar and MSG if you like. Cook for a while.
Take a piece of aluminium foil and layered with a piece of banana leaf.As long you can cover the fish its good enough. Put some sambal mixture onto the leaf and layered with the fish finishing the top with another layer of sambal mixture. Wrapped the leaf first then the aluminium foil outside. The aluminium foil is to prevent the fish from burnt. Can be BBQed, grill or on a flat pan. Do not overcook or the sambal will become dry. Garnish with coriander leaves and some lime juice.-(Bersihkan ikan seperti biasa dan keringkan ikan dengan menggunakan tuala. Panaskan minyak dan tumis bawang putih, daun kesum dan chili boh sehingga garing. Masukkan santan, garam dan serbuk perasa kalau suka. Biarkan seketika. Ambil sehelai daun pisang dan dialaskan dengan kertas timah. Bubuh sedikit sambal diatas daun pisang tadi dan letak kan ikan diatasnya dan bubuh sambal lagi diatas ikan tadi. Bungkus daun pisang dulu baru kertas timah diluar. kertas timah digunakan untuk mengelakkan ikan dari hangus. Boleh dibakar, panggang atau panggang diatas kuali. Jangan masak terlau lama, kerana sambalnya akan kering. Hiaskan dengan daun ketumbar dan perahan limau sambal.)

Choc - Cheese Orange Muffins


Dah lama tak buat muffins, lama ke?...I think a few already tried this recipe..but I cant remember who...actually I just couldnt wait to do this any longer..although theres no orange in the house!!..so I made this without the orange zest...but used the sunquick for the juice... orange and chocolate just goes very well!!!...maybe I should start collecting kulit buah orange after eating oranges..recipe from Che Mat Gebu ler...

I doubled the ingredients and added another 2-3 tbsp of corn oil...sprinkle some chocolate chips and filled half the cup instead of 3/4 sorry ya Che Mat, saya adjust sikit....bukan apa takut 'pisang berbuah dua kali'.(once bitten twice shy)..I remembered the last time muffins that consist, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda will rise when baking, and 20 cups of mufiins were gone into 'Mr Bin' ... so I did what I did...Terima kasih dan halalkan resepinya ya..

Ingredients:-
130 g mentega-(butter)
130 g cream cheese-(cream cheese)
4 biji telur gred A-(eggs grade A)

Satukan mentega, cream cheese dan gula, putar hingga putih dan gula hancur. Masukkan telur satu persatu sambil terus memutar hingga kembang. Jarak waktu untuk satu telur = 1 minit. Masukkan parutan kulit oren, putar rata.
Pada kelajuan perlahan, masukkan tepung tadi berselang seli dengan jus oren, hingga habis. Macam biasa kalau masuk berselang seli, mesti diakhiri dengan tepung. Putar hingga semua sebati.
Kaup adunan dengan spatula untuk meratakan mana2 bahagian dalam mangkuk adunan yang kurang rata. Sudukan adunan 3/4 penuh dalam muffin cup(saya masukkan SETENGAH saja.). Bakar dalam oven yang telah dipanaskan pada suhu 190C(saya menggunakan 175c utk oven saya) selama 25 minit atau hingga masak.
Sejukkan atas jaringan sebelum dihidang. Kalau suka boleh juga disapu cream dan hias ikut kreativiti masing2....-(Combine butter, cream cheese and sugarin a mixer. Mix till white and sugar dissolved. Add in eggs one by one while still mixing till fluffy. 1 minute interval for each eggs. Add in orange zest. Using a slow speed, add in flour alternately with orange juice till.

As usual, he just loves beef very much...everytime when comes to noodles menu, he surely asked for beef in it...my kids, my parents and me dont really fancy beef, we prefer chicken..so almost everytime 'termiss' out the beef..this mee suah I realised after frying looked like mee hoon lah..only mee suah are more soft and tender..haha..

Sweet Potato Donuts


Asked for Hana's permission to print and try out this recipe yesterday..I told her if I buat jadi then I will post in my today's entry, if not buat bodoh saja..hehehe..So I tried yesterday night using the mixer.... memang pun mixture dia ada lembik sikit, but I added flour bit by bit till the dough didnt stick to the mixer bowl...lama jugak in the mixing bowl sampai my mum tanya, kau buat apa ni? lamanya kau putar....hehe I told her buat donut pakai keledek..apa2 pun Hana, here is my donut, jadi sebab tu masuk entry hari ni...haha...you can see her version of using the pumpkin di blog Hana Japan. Thank you ya Hana for sharing this recipe.

Ingredients
320 grams flour (a bit more if the dough is too sticky)-( tepung gandum)-(tambahkan tepung sikit kalau doh melekat)
2 tsp yeast-(yis)
1/2 tsp salt-(garam)
150 grms mashed sweet potatoes-(keledek dilecek)
2 tbsp sugar-(gula)
30 grms butter-(mentega)
100 ml water-(air)

For coating
Some sugar or cinnamon sugar-(gula untuk disaluti)

Methods

In a large mixing bowl mix all the ingredients together and knead for about 6-7 minutes until you get nice smooth dough. Add some extra flour if it’s so sticky. Cover the bowl with a dry kitchen towel and let it rise for an hour or double it size at a warm place.-(Masukkan semua bahan kedalam mangkuk dan uli selama 6-7 minit sampai jadi doh yang lembut.(saya gunakan mixer putar sampai tak melekat-dlm 30 minit!) Masukkan tepung kalau melekat. Tutup mangkuk mixer dengan tuala kering dan biarkan doh naik sampai 2x ganda.)
Punch down the dough and remove onto a floured work tabletop. Roll out the dough to about 1/4" thick and cut the dough out into rounds with a donuts cutter. Gather the snaps and re-roll, then cut out more donuts.-( Tumbuk2 doh dan alihkan keatas meja adunan. Gelek doh untuk mendapatkan 1/4" tebal dan terapkan menggunakan kan doh cutter)

Place donuts on parchment paper,cover and let rise for 20 minutes or until they feel light and spongy.-(Letakkan donut diatas kertas kalis minyak dan tutup. Biarkan ia selama 20 minit atau sehingga ia beras ringan dan lembut seperti span.)

Heat oil for deep-frying in a frying pan over medium heat. Slip a few donuts into the oil at a time, leaving enough room for them to expand. Make sure that the oil is not too hot otherwise the donuts will not be cooked.-(Goreng donut menggunaka api sedang dan jangan menggunakan api besar kerana donut cepat hangus dan ditakuti ia tidak masak didalam.)

When the donuts are golden brown, turn them over and cook the other side. It takes about 2–3 minutes to cook through. When donuts are done, remove from oil and drain the oil on paper towels before rolling them in sugar.-(Bila donut sudah berwarna kekuningan, terbalikkan dan goreng disebelahnya pula. Ia mengambil masa kira-kira 2-3 minit untuk dimasak. Angkat dan toskan. Lumurkan dengan gula.)

Tepung Menggoreng Rangup


This morning breakfast..tried using this recipe for the batter that stays crispy although when cool..instead of using yellow colouring I added orange colour..huhu...thank you kak royladzem for sharing this recipe..

Bahan-bahannya:-

75 gram tepung naik sendiri -(self raising flour)
60 gram tepung beras -(rice flour)
1 camca besar tepung jagung -(tbsp corn flour)
sedikit serbuk kunyit/ pewarna kuning -(a bit of turmeric powder/or yellow colouring)
garam secukupnya -(salt to taste)
gula secukupnya (jika mahu) -(sugar if preferred)
sedikit air kapur (anggaran 1 sudu kecil - jangan terlalu banyak nanti pahit) -(a bit of white lime water-not too much or else bitter- abt 1 tsp)
130 ml air -(water)
3 - 5 ketul ais (jangan terlalu banyak takut adunan cair) -(ice-not too much or else mixture will be too runny)

Cara-caranya:-
Satukan bahan kering didalam mangkuk. Buatkan lubang di tengahnya, tuangkan air sambil gaul hingga sebati. Bila pekat dan boleh menyalut belakang sudu, biarkan bancuhan selama 10-15 minit. Pastikan minyak untuk menggoreng banyak dan cukup panas supaya pisang digoreng menjadi keemasan dan tidak menyerap minyak. Selepas bancuhan diperab untuk 10 - 15 minit dan minyak cukup panas, masukkan anggaran 3 - 5 ketul ais dalam adunan dan celup pisang dalam bancuhan dan terus goreng. Insyallah pisang akan menjadi ranggup
walaupun telah sejuk. -(Mix all the dry ingredients in a container. Make a well in the centre, and add in water and mix well. When thickens and covered the back of the spoon, let the mixture for 10-15 minutes. Make sure oil for frying is really hot and covered the banana/cempedak/sweet potatoes to golden yellow and not soggy. After the mixture has set add in 3-5 ice and dip bananas in batter and fry. Bananas will still be crispy although when cool.)

Looking at the name I think some of you might be thinking that I am so free to make the tahi minyak(coconut crumbs) for this dish right?..hahaha..well actually the coconut crumbs was balance from my last koleh koleh kacang that I made...saw this recipe.. reminded me of the tahi minyak in the fridge so make full use of it lah...

To some who didnt know, to make coconut crumbs will take some of your time as you have to keep on stirring till the coconut milk turns to crumbs...so best if you want to make koleh koleh kacang make extra for the tahi minyak..as you wouldnt know when you might need it again..so if you have extras..it came in handy like this one...hehe

Ingredients:-

2 trays of quail's egg hard boiled (forgot to count how many there..hehe)-make several slashes on the surface of each egg-(2 tray telur burung-direbus dihiris permukaan nya)
Grind to a paste (with blender):-(Bahan kisar)

Coconut crumbs can be made a day earlier and stored in an air tight container. Heat oil in a wok and fry the ground ingredients until oil rises up the surface. Add in tamarind juice, sugar and salt and stir. Add in eggs, cover pan, lower heat, add onion rings and coconut crumbs and mix well.-( Untuk membuat tahi minyak, bubuh santan dalam periuk/kuali dan masak di atas api yang kecil. Kacau selalu sehingga kering dan pecah minyak. Bila santan sudah bertukar menjadi coklat/tahi minya angkat dan matikan api. Tahi minyak boleh disediakan sehari sebelum digunakan dan dismpan didalam bekas kedap udara. Panaskan minyak dan tumis bahan kisar sehingga garing. Masukkan air asam jawa, gula dan garam kacau hingga sebati. Masukkan telur, tutup periuk dan biarkan sebentar dengan api pelahan. Masukkan bawang yang dihirs bulat dan tahi minyak dan kacau rata.)

Ayam Goreng Jawa

This fried chicken is something like 'Ayam Kalasan'...or maybe this is another name for that..haha.. to cook this dish, I guessed its best to use 'old chicken'(ayam pencen)..hehe cause it took sometimes for the mixture to dry, and by that time the chicken has already been cooked and if you turn or stir slightly the chicken will become 'hancur'(mashed up)..furthermore I used chicken breast for this..lagilah..overall worth trying
