Basic Bread (Wendy Kor) + Coney Sauce = Coney Dog!

Who's afraid of thunder and lightning, put up your hand keyboard!!!
Can you see an XXL lady behind there putting up both her hands and trying to put up her legs as well? That will be me! Hahaha... I am really scared of thunder and lightning...that's my honest confession! I remembered once when I was still a teenager, I was in my room upstairs studying doing homework. It was raining and suddenly there was a loud thunder. I jumped out of the chair and ran all the way down and straight under the table, where my mom was marking her students' book. I just stayed still under the table near my mom's leg! Mom had a good laugh when I told her what happened! Hahaha... Now that I am married and with kids, they are my 'victim'! The kids will always say,"Apalah mama ni...." Hahaha...

Yesterday evening, when I reached home after sending Syahmi to his tuition place, it rained heavily with lightning and loud thunder. That time, how I regretted sending Syahmi to tuition... hahaha teruk punya mak macam ni... I was all alone with all that loud sound. Closed all the curtains and I stayed put upstairs at the hall. Why there? Because there's no windows. Therefore, I won't be seeing the lightning! To distract myself from the fear, I went through my SAJI and RASA magazines, plus my printout recipes. And yes... I came up with something that I can make for dinner. Well then, the lightning did good to me, in a way.....

I told Syahmi that I'm going to make some Coney Dogs for dinner and he agreed. Since it was still raining and I was just too lazy to go to the shop which is just a few steps away from my house, I decided to bake my own rolls. Furthermore, I have this new bread book that I haven't tested it's reliability. Started in the kitchen at 6.45pm and Syahmi only had his dinner at 9.45pm. But it's worth the wait and the effort! Syahmi enjoyed his Coney Dogs... yes, with an 's' because he not only had one but three of them plus scrambled eggs. All polished. And what did he say about it, "Mom, your Coney Dogs are simply delicious, better than the ones we bought". See how clever my son can 'kipas' me... hahaha... no la, he is sincere, I know. Because for lunch, I had cooked Masak Lemak Cili Api Ayam, and he didn't enjoyed it that much. He said, it's not to his liking. Maybe I put just a bit too much bird eye chillie and he can't take it...

Since it'll be a weekend soon, let me just post both the recipes here....

Source : Bread Code (Wendy Kor)

Ingredients A :

500g high protein flour (I just used multipurpose flour)
1 teaspoon instant yeast

Ingredients B :

60g sugar (I lessen it to 50g)
1 teaspoon (5g) salt
1 teaspoon (5g) milk powder

Ingredients C :

1 (50g) egg
250g water

Ingredient D :

50g butter

Method :

1. Put ingredients A in mixer and blend at slow speed for 1 minute. Then add in ingredients B, blend for 1 minute.
2. Add in ingredients C, blend at slow speed for 1 minute than use medium speed to blend 5 minutes till dough-like.
3. Add in ingredient D and continue to blend 10 to 15 minutes, till dough is shiny and springy.
4. Use cling wrap to cover the dough, allow to leaven for 40 to 50 minutes till dough is doubled.

That is the method, copied straight from the book. But I used my bread maker to get the job done for me. What I did was...
1. Pour in the water and the slightly beaten egg into the BM pan. Add sugar.
2. Add in the dried ingredients into the pan, making sure the yeast is not near the salt.
3. Set the BM to basic dough programme and let it do the job it knows best. That will take about 1 1/2 hour or so.
4. Take out the proofed dough and punch down to let the air out. Cut using the dough cutter and weigh about 60 g each.
5. Make into round balls and leave to rest for about 10 minutes.
6. Shape into oval and arrange on the baking tray. Let it proof double the size.
7. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 20 to 25 minutes. Oven temperature may differ.
8. Once out of the oven, brush with butter.

I've made this Coney Sauce once when we were still in Malawi ...nostalgic Malawi..huhuhu.... But yesterday I made a few adjustments. So I'm going to post the version that I had modified from Sandra of Allrecipes dot Com. Thank you so much for sharing it with us...


Ingredients :

1/2 pound (225g) ground beef (I used Ramly's brand)
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup fresh tomato ~ blended to paste
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
1 tablespoon chili sauce (more, if you like it hot)
a bit of zeal (optional)
salt and sugar to taste

Directions :

1. In a medium skillet over medium high heat, add a bit of oil and saute the ground beef for 10-15 minutes, or until well browned.
2. Break up the meat with a fork until fine.
3. Add the water,onion, garlic, tomato paste, tomato sauce, chili sauce, zeal, sugar and salt.
4. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes or until heated thoroughly.

To assemble into Coney Dogs :

1. Boil the sausages for a few minutes. Remove from the pot and onto a kitchen towel.
2. Cut the hotdog rolls in the middle, and place the sausages.
3. Spoon enough sauce on top. Sprikle with some diced onion.
4. Pipe whatever sauce you like. For Syahmi, it's just the Thousand Island. For me, I added a bit of mustard.
5. Enjoy!

Our lunch yesterday....

Have a nice and safe weekend everyone!

    Anonymous :
    My bread maker's brand is Empress and I got it from Cosway (hai, tolong iklanlah pulak haaa). After 1 1/2 hour, the dough shoud have double the size and not so sticky. At times, I'll sprinkle a bit of flour to make it easier to remove the dough from the container.
