Talam Keladi

First attempt to make this talam!!..forgot to steam the yam first when I mixed the below layer!!..quickly drain out the mixture and steamed it with a bit of the coconut milk in it...huhu..Always!!..always ..tersilap..knocking my head right now...best if were to used the required tray..since I dont have one, I used a 9" tray and that was why my talam was not so 'high'..apa2 pun I like the taste...the sweetness is acceptable to me...

Some would blend the yam till fine as for me I preferred it this way...terpulanglah citarasa masing2 ya..

Ingredients:- Untuk lapisan bawah - (Below layer)

Campurkan semua adunan untuk lapisan bawah, termasuk keladi yang telah dikukus tadi. Panaskan kukusan pada api sederhana hingga air mendidih lalu letak loyang berukuran 8" bulat dan griskan dgn sedikit minyak. Tuangkan adunan lapisan bawah pada loyang tadi & kukus selama 10-15 minit.
-(Below layer) - Mix all the ingredients for below layer including steamed yam. Put steamer on a medium heat and boil water till bubbling. Placed 8" greasesd tray and pour all the below layer ingredients and steam for 10-15 minutes.)

Tutup semula kukusan tadi & kukus lagi selama 10-15 minit atau hingga masak. Alihkan untuk disejukkan. Gunakan plastik & sapu sedikit minyak untuk memotong supaya tidak melekat.
-(Top Layer) - In another bowl, combine coconut milk, salt & sugar till incorporated. Add in rice flour and othe other ingredients. Mix well till not lumpy- strained.

Kek Gula Hangus

Salam, it has been almost a week, since I last updated...the reasons why I have not been posting and updating was because I have been busy going to and fro to the hospital as my mum was warded there since last Friday...Yup! she was admitted after she had a fall and her head was bleeding profusely...it happened that faithful Friday morning at about 5 am..

When she fall everybody was still sound asleep...it was understood that she wanted to go to the toilet and suddenly felt giddy and 'blackout'...she managed to sit up, realising her head was 'wet' with blood..after that she cried out for us...my sons was those who came to hear her cries cause their room was the nearest..the kids came running to my room and woke me up...I quickly dashed out and saw my mum was holding her head with her hand and her face was sooo 'white'....with some blood was on the floor...the cut was about the diameter of a 20 cents coin...

That morning, Mr Hubby and my dad brought my mum to the nearest clinic, I stayed behind to settle the kids going to school..when the doctor saw my mum, he checked the cut and suggested to them to bring my mum to the hospital as the cut was quite deep and she had a very low blood pressure...when they reached the A& E department...the cut was treated and went for an X-Ray
to check any possibilities of blood clot or 'crack'..thank god it was OK, but when they checked her heart beat, it was very irregular and her blood pressure was very very low..the doctor suggested her to be admitted...after hearing that she was taking her blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and thyroid medications adding to poor appetite the doctor put her on 'drip'...not sure what was the liquid in the bag, it could be iodine??...but she told me 5 bags of those was dripped into her...

During one of the visits, I managed to ask the doctor, how was my mum, she said that its because of her thyroid and her high blood medications adding to her 'TAK NAK/BOLEH MAKAN', that made her blood pressure went down all the way...Alhamdullilah, after the 2 days she was taken off the drip and her face can be seen 'MERAH' sikit...got a call from her just now that the doctor has told her that she can go back today...so later Mr Hubby will fetch her...

Anyway I made this honeycomb cake and brought over to the hospital as this is my mum's favourite...and at the same time for those who came to visit ...recipe I put up here again..

Ingredients for caramel:- 1 cup sugar-(1 cawan gula)
1 cup hot water-(1 cawan air panas)
2 tbsp butter-(2 sudu besar mentega)
On medium heat, fry sugar in a saucepan. When the sugar has almost melt, add in hot water(be careful @ this part cause it will be popping.) Add in butter and stir till melts. Put to cool ans set aside.-(Gula digoreng dengan api sederhana besar. Bila gula dah agak cair masukkan air panas-kena berhati2 sebab nanti dia meletop letop. Tutup api & cepat masukkan air panas tadi dan masukkan mentega kacau sampai mentega cair. Ketepikan)

Ingredients for cake:-
4 eggs-(4 biji telur)
1 cup condensed milk-(1 cawan susu pekat)
1 cup plain flour-(1 cawan tepung gandum)
2 tsp soda bicarbonate-(2 sudu teh soda bicarbonate)
1 tsp vanilla essence-(1 sudu teh vanilla essence)

Method:-
Using a hand mixer beat eggs till creamy and thick. Add in condensed milk mixed well. In a blender pour eggs and milk mixture. PRESS the on button. Then add in plain flour & soda bicarbonate which has been sifted and Vanilla Essence. PRESS the on button again. Lastly add in the syrup. PRESS the on button again. Leave the mixture in the blender for 3-4 jam(covered) to get a beautiful 'sponge'. After 3-4 hours, pour into a 5" greased tray in order to get a 'higher sponge'(I used 7" inch tray) in oven.Without stirring the mixture(This was what I did), pour the ingredients directly into tray in the oven. Bake for 60 minutes or till cook at 160 degrees Celsius (For my oven I used 145C degrees and bake for 90 minutes) using just the below heat(api bawah). The last 20-30 minutes use both heat(api atas and bawah). Take out from oven and let it cool before cutting. -(Pukul telur sampai kembang & pekat. Masukkan susu pekat and mix lagi. Tuangkan adunan kedalam blender dan tekan ON. Masukkan tepung & soda bicarbonate yang telah diayak tadi dan esen vanila. Tekan On lagi. Last baru masukkan gula hangs tadi. Tekan On lagi. Biarkan adunan dalam blender selama 3-4 jam(tertutup) untuk mendapatkan 'span' yang cantik. Selepas diperap, masukkan adunan kedalam loyang yang telah digris dengan butter(Tanpa menggodak adunan tu). Gunakan loyang 5", kalau nak kek yang tinggi( saya gunakan loyang 7" aje)Tuang adunan terus kedalam loyang dalam oven. Bakar dengan suhu 160C selama 60 minit.

Kerutup Sotong

The original recipe was from Kak Hanieliza and to use beef, but was 'diversified' by Kak Muza in changing the main ingredients to squids.. the Kerutup Powder, which I've got from JB, I used for this dish..although it says for 'chicken and beef'..hehehe..

It could be categorize under 'Rendang', as it taste slightly like that...Although the recipe recommended to eat this with Nasi Tomato or Minyak, I just serve it with plain white rice..pun ok jugaklah..so below is the recipe that I 've edited which you can change it to beef and just add 1 inch cinammon stick when saute...

Ingredients:-

1 kg sotong-( 1kg squids)
3 cawan santan-(3 cups coconut milk)
3 sudu besar kerisik-(3 tbsp toasted coconut crumbs)
3 sudu besar kerutup powder -(3 tbsp kerutup powder)
2 sudu besar gula merah-(2 tbsp palm sugar)
3 sudu besar minyak-(3 tbsp oil)
1/2 cawan air asam jawa-(1/2 cup tamarind juice)

Bahan2 Kisar:- (Blended ingredients)
15 tangkai cili kering-(15 dried chillies)
10 ulas bawang merah-(10 shallots)
3 ulas bawang putih-(3 garlics)
3 cm halia-(3 cm ginger)
3 cm lengkuas-(3 cm galangal)

Method:-
Basuh dan bersihkan sotong dan toskan. Bancuhkan bahan kisar dengan rempah kerutup. Panaskan minyak dan masukkan bahan kisar yang telah dibancuh tadi. Kacau rata sehingga naik minyak dan wangi. Masukkan sotong dan kacau rata. Masukkan santan, air asam jawa, gula dan garam. Perlahankan api.(Masak sotong sekejap saja dan lepas tu diangkat, biarkan kuahnya kering sedikit , baru diangkat dan curahkan atas sotong tadi.) Biarkan reneh sehingga pekat dan naik minyak semula.-(Wash and drained squids. Mix blended ingredients to kerutup powder. Heat oil and add in blended ingredients + kerutup powder(paste). Stir well till fragrant and oil rises up the surface. Add in squids and mix well. Add in coconut milk, tamarind juice, sugar and salt. Slow down heat. (Make sure not to overcooked the squids, dish out when cooked and let the gravy simmer till a bit thick and pour the gravy on the earlier squids).Let the gravy simmer for a while and oil rises up the surface.

Kobis Goreng Kunyit

Fried this cabbage on Saturday night for dinner...quite sometimes I wanted to cook this style using cabbage..normally I can see this kind of dish in Indian stalls that sell 'Nasi Mamak'..goes very well with their rice which has been cooked by discarding the starch in the rice...sometimes they used snake gourds and sometimes long beans...

Anyway, recipe also campak2 one...haha..slice some cabbage, some red/green chillies, garlics, onions. Saute onions, garlics,chillies, turmeric powder, curry leaves and mustard seeds till fragrant. Add in sliced cabbage and stir well. Add some salt and MSG to taste. Ready.

Nasi Lemak & Sambal Ayam Serai


This was actually Friday's menu..as usual cant update cause was busy with the family...tried this nasi lemak with the Sambal Ayam Serai, I adjusted a bit by adding some sugar to it..thank you Love, for the recipe,I c&p it here ya..my periuk licin tau..haha..

Ingredients:-
4 cups of basmati rice-(4 cawan beras basmati)
1 box of coconut milk(200mls) + 1 box of water (from the coconut ilk box)-(1 kotak santan(200mls) + 1 kotak air(gunakan kotak santan)
4 cups of water-(4 cawan air)
1 tsp fenugreek-(1 sudu kecil halba)
1 tiny slice ginger-(1 hirisan halia)
1 -2 shallots sliced-(1-2 bawang merah dihirs)
4 pandan leaves-(4 daun pandan)
salt to taste-(garam secukup rasa)

Method:-
Just cook like usually cook rice. However you need to take care of them, checking if there is enough water because the coconut milk tends to turn oil and make the rice 'sandy'. If the rice is not cooked after the button pop up, try add some water and cook again. If at all failed, then try steaming the rice in the steamer till cook.-(Masak nasi seperti biasa. Tapi harus selalu tengok supaya air cukup sebab santan akan bertukar keminyak dan nasi akan menjadi berbiji. Kalau nasi belum masak, bila butang ternaik, masukkan sedikit air dan tekan lagi. Kalau tak menjadi juga, kukus nasi dalm kukusan hingga masak)
