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....


BASIC BREAD DOUGH
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...


CONEY SAUCE

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!

Singgang Daging

Everyone needs a shoulder to cry on, no matter how tough that person is. I came across this website , listing how we can be one. Let me just quote it here, so that we can all share the useful information...
Step 1 : BE TRUSTWORTHY

Nobody will open up to someone who is not respectable. You have to earn that person's trust by keeping their confidence. Be ready to become a voice of inspiration to the hurting person.

Step 2 : BE AVAILABLE

Being there shows that you care. People always want people they love or trust to be by them, through thick or thin. Your presence is enough to stop the tears from flowing.

Step 3 : BE A LISTENER

At this point, the hurting person has reached catharsis and needs someone just to listen. Be that person. Let the hurting person feel important and free to release their feelings.

Step 4 : BE EMPATHIC

You must put yourself in that person's shoes, in order to understand their hurt. This requires being non-judgmental and in tune with that person's emotions. Being empathic will help you say the right words to sooth their hurt.

Step 5 : BE SINCERE
Being genuine in lending your shoulder proves your integrity to the hurting person. Ulterior motives always ruin what can be a wonderful
relationship. You have to care about people with all sincerity.

But trust me, not everybody you can trust to be your shoulder to cry on. I learnt it the hard way which left a bit of scar in my heart. I guess, at times, less said are better!

Enough said.... let's move on to another recipe that I had tried recently. It was well enjoyed, again by Syahmi. My boy has the same taste as the mommy who likes sour stuffs. I came across this recipe at Jun's Blog . Since the recipe looks easy, I said to myself, why not give it a try. I made the right decision. Thank you Jun and Putra yanty of MYR, for the recipe.



SINGGANG DAGING

Ingredients :

1/2 kg topside beef
6 shallots
3 garlic
1 inci ginger
2 pieces dried tamarind (asam keping)
1 tablespoon corriander seed ~ pounded
a bit of black pepper ~ crushed
1 tablespoon chillie paste
salt, sugar and zeal to taste
1 teaspoon Budu (optional)

Method :

1. Slice the topside beef thinly. Wash and set aside.
2. Slice onion, garlic and ginger.
3. Place the beef, onion, garlic, ginger, corriander, black pepper and chillie paste into a pot with a bit of water and let it cook on medium heat.
4, When the water is almost dried up, add enough water for the gravy. Add in the dried tamarind, salt, sugar and zeal to taste. Let it boil. Once the beef is cooked, it's ready to be served.

Happy cooking!

Rainbow Butter Cake (Chef Noraini)

Yesterday night, I was tired but then I just have the urge to update my page. With the little energy left, I just uploaded the photos without much to write. My apologies....

MAK TEH said...
hmmm...hari ni masuk x hepi la,senyap sunyi je..esok pulak ya?

My answer : Aduhai Mak Teh, once in a while, biarlah senyap sunyi sket... ni asyik pot pet pot pet je pun, nanti orang fening kefala membaca! Hahaha...

This morning, I was out of the house quite early. It's because I have something to settle with the MPSJ. Kak Ana has been kind enough to accompany me. Went to the not so friendly counter and settled whatever I have to settle, as fast as 15 minutes! What a relief! From there, Kak Ana asked if we could go to Mydin. So off to Mydin we went. We actually took our own sweet time there and we shop at ease since there were not many people in the store. Surprised? You should be, huh... Mydin is always crowded UNLESS WE GO THERE WHEN THEY ARE JUST OPENED FOR BUSINESS which was what we actually did just now! Hahaha... that explains, right! Hahaha...

Back from Mydin, I straight away transformed the Ikan Tenggiri that I just bought, into this....


Was so happy to see how Syahmi enjoyed his lunch and dinner... MasyaAllah...

Enough said for now, let me just post a cake recipe that I had recently tested in my kitchen. Got it from Dari Dapur CT . According to her, this recipe came from Chef Noraini Zakaria .

Iced Coffee

Hello there everyone...

Actually I am in the middle of writing this one particular topic and it had been going on for a few days already, but I guess, that entry will have to wait as I think, this entry has to go first... Make way for Uncle Lee of A Moonlight Rendezvous.

Came across his blog quite sometimes back after blog hopping. Just love his humour and his writing especially when it comes to his Ninjalogy. And I must say, he is very good at words. The only thing about his blog is, I think it is not suitable for kids underage! Hihihi.. Sorry Uncle Lee.. at times the photos you posted, makes me shy shy cat la... hahaha... I orang kampunglah Uncle Lee, bila tengok all those sexy sexy girls, my eyes like want to pop out! Hahaha... Tui phu chee Uncle Lee...

And Doc, yes...I would like it very much you just address me as, 'Lee'... the 'uncle..' more meant for those below 22, ha ha

Quoted this in one of his replies to the many comments he received in his blog. Well Uncle Lee, I am definately not below 22. Infact another year, I will be double that number! Hahaha... But I like to address you as Uncle Lee to show respect for someone who is elder than me, even just for 1 or 2 years of age. Dare not call you Abang Lee, or your Mrs will start pulling up her sleeves... oooo ada hati mau tackle I punya darling heart throb!!! Aiyooo cabut lari laaaa.......

And thank you Uncle Lee for making me smile all day long with your reply to my comments on your Seducing A Man's Heart Thru His Eyes entry.

Uncle Lee said...
Hello Mama Fami, I love your humour. Hey....every woman
has her own beauty believe you me.
Nobody is fat or plain or
whatever....beauty can be your eyes, your ahemmm, legs, the way you walk...and
the most powerful of all, your smile.

Mama Fami, I if under different
circumstances will date you anytime, ha ha.
And ha ha, love women like
you...and I like your, "maybe I don't have a good look to offer but I may have
other good qualities instead... what do you think Uncle Lee? Hahaha".

Ahhhh, can I buy yiu dinner at Cameron Highlands Smoke House Inn, we can
discuss that when after dinner walk in the mist? Ha ha.

Whatever it is,
whatever you are Mama Fami, a man loves you, your hubby....you mentioned you
'xxl'....I know women with an 'M' even 'S' satu boyfriend pun tada, let alone
tengok dua bulan....
so Mama Fami, you are beautiful. I say so. Anybody
disagree jumpa saya, ha ha.
You have a nice day and keep a song in your
heart, Lee.


Uncle Lee said...
Hello Mama Fami, alamak oi! Invite satu dapat gerabak
empat?
Can, no problemos. Will be my pleasure to meet the gang, ha ha.
Glad I made you smile, Mama Fami....nothing like a smile to push away any
dark clouds and bring out the sunshine.

Ha ha, your 'mach bodygurad'?
Yes Ma'am, uncle Lee at your service...anytime.
Perumpuan punya pasal, I
mesti come to the rescue...ada iced kopi ke? Ha ha.

You have a nice day,
Mama Fami, jumpa lagi, Lee.


Psst Uncle Lee... about that dinner at Cameron Highlands Smoke House Inn, can we change the venue? I am not sure the halaal status there. Can we go to Kenny Rogers instead? And the offer must still be for 4 okay, remember the package! Hahahahaha..... just kidding!

And Uncle Lee, I belanja you Iced Coffee already, but you're unable to open the URL that I gave you. So here's again for you on your 200th Blog posting



Have fun cooking....kalu you buat donuts or upside down pineapple cake, hantar
saya telegram...siap kan iced kopi I take bus come over

Quoted from his comment on my page...

Alamak, now you want donuts and upside down pineapple cake pulak ke? That day you were asking for cream puffs, remember? Well, that is on the way. Mmmm now I have to go hunting for donuts and upside down pineapple cakes. Jangan I yang go upside down sudah! Hahahaha..... Wish me luck!

I think I've written long enough, but not as lengthy as Uncle Lee's entries! *wink* *wink*. I'll post the recipe for the Iced Coffee that I have made the same day Uncle Lee posted his entry that made my day... The iced coffee is a bit bitter and not too sweet, just to my liking. To be honest with all of you, I have never tasted Iced Coffee before, so I am not sure how it tastes like!

American Chocolate Cake

Hello everyone....

Just hoping that everyone is keeping well, where ever you maybe. Trully sorry for the silence. I was busy and life had been hectic. Fatin was home for a 6 days break and Syahmi had a long holiday during PMR, went to school for a couple of days then back to holiday mood for Deepavali till Tuesday. When Fatin is around, my job as a driver will be doubled and sometimes tripled. Tuitions, shoppings and whatnots. At the same time, I had orders for cookies and cupcakes as well and not to mention open house to attend to... Hahaha... I am just exaggerating, to make it sound that I am slightly busier than the Prime Minister! Muahahaha....

I had prepared 3 types of cookies as per Amy's order, one of which is a new recipe. Will post that in my later entries, if I do not forget.
Congratulations Amy on your registration. May you guys live happily ever after!

Don't forget to share with me the photos of your big day okay. You're no longer a Miss but now a Mrs to Mr Right.... *wink* *wink* And I made this American Chocolate Cake (recipe will be posted later) for Amy and her ex-fiance (now dear hubby!). Thank you for your feedback. I guess I have to bake one for us to taste later on...




Our neighbour Asmah and Sufi had invited us for lunch last Sunday. It was like a last minute invitation and I was left with so little time to prepare something to bring along. Luckily I still have some tart shells in my stock and ended up preparing some fruit tartlets for them, with Fatin's help of course (kena tulis ni... kalau tak nanti dia demand pulak! Muahahahaha). Alhamdulillah the fruit tarts were much to their likings.



After the lunch at Asmah's , Fatin and me sat down to work. We have to deco 100 mini cupcakes. Fatin wanted to sponsor a school event. She had told her friends that SHE's going to prepare the cupcakes but I ended up baking them all! But I made sure she did half the deco as she had promised her friends. I did the other half. These were our 'work of art'. Hahaha... What do you think?





Oki doki, enough of that, let's move on to the recipe. As promised, here's the recipe of the cake which I took from MaDiHaA's Fotopages and she got it from one of her cake books authored by Chef Wendy Kor. Thank you to both ladies for making this cake possible...
Note : I am sorry, I made a mistake earlier on. I posted the wrong recipe for the photo. The recipe that I had posted before this has not been tested in my kitchen. My sincere apologies for all the inconvenience caused.

Sausage Bread Rolls


You want to know what I did last weekend? Mmmm if you don't want, then don't read ya, because I am still going to write about it here. Too bad... hahaha....

Our weekend schedule was full. Leaving me exhausted towards the end of the day. But alhmdulillah, I still managed to bake all the cookies for Amy Stephen eventhough I had to sleep past 1 am for two days. Not Amy to blame but me! I guess I have to consider giving up my Mrs. Last Minute Dot Com title soon. I am just too old for that now. I know it's rather stressful to do things at last minute basis but when will I change? Only I can answer that... and since I don't have the answer just yet, we'll just wait and see.... hahaha...

Anyway, last Saturday, we followed our neighbour to the bride's side for the wedding ceremony. Their second son got married to Syazila of Bandar Sunway. After the ceremony, we made our way to Tanjong Malim, to a friend's house. Reached there around 5.20 pm and stayed there till 9.45 pm! Gosh.... didn't realise it was THAT long... due to the chaotic moments at their house! Hahaha... Thank you tuan rumah for having us! Jangan serik...... Reached home around 10.30 pm and started baking pineapple tarts for orders. Managed to get all done by 1.30am and I slept like I've never sleep before aka tidur mati! Hahahaha......

Sunday.... had jemput-jemput ikan bilis for breakfast and start coating the Almond London cookies for order. Then, prepared ourselves to attend our neighbour's son's wedding ceremony here.. infront of our house! All three neighbours were at the same table. Had a lovely time catching up with each other... that's what we call, so near yet so far... though we stayed in the same row, it's not always we get the chance to sit and chat.

Done with eating and chatting, we made our move... firstly to Gurney Heights and then to Taman Samudera. Had a lovely time there with lovely food and lovely friends. When we reached home, I went to Kak Paridah's house to give a helping hand whereever needed. By the time I went back home, I was totally exhausted and this time, I really gave up. I didn't bake any cookies. Told myself to do it the first thing in the morning...and that's exactly what I just did.... So my orders are completed.. Alhamdulillah.......

There goes my weekend story and now, let me just post something very easy to prepare but nice to eat.....

Masak Lemak Cili Api Udang & Cendawan Tiram


A week already? ....dengan mimik muka yang terperanjat poyo..... Wow, time flies!! That's how long I've neglected my blog! But what can I say, I just can't get myself to write something as nothing comes to mind. I do cook, did try a few recipes but just can't get anything out of the brain to write. Whats more, that one week period is pretty hectic for me. Sooooo many things happened, so many events took place, leaving me....exhausted but happy most of the time.

I don't intend to have an open house but since last Saturday, quite a number of friends wanted to come over, so I prepared some dish for my guests... tak sedap mana pun... tapi asal ada hidangan tu, okaylah tuh!.... My old time best friend in Sek Men Teknik Melaka (batch 1982/83) Haslinda Hj Noah came over with her family. It had been more than 10 years since we last met but still in touch. It was great to see her again after all these while. We had a great time chatting and updating stories, not gossiping ya.!!! Mind you... Thanks Linda for coming, and now that you've already know my house, please feel free to come again....

After they left, our friend, Noraya and family, whom we get to know when we were in Sri Lanka came over. Kak Jamaliah was supposed to join in the group but can't make it as they were stranded in Malacca due to the rain. It was En Mus's (Kak Jamaliah's hubby) birthday that day, 3rd October, and I thought of decorating one cupcakes with a birthday wish on it, just for him. But since they didn't make it, so I just decorated the cuppies with the Eid theme. Thanks Nor for coming and Kak Mal....I'll be right here waiting...........

When Noraya left, another three of my friends dropped by with their families. Ida, Azie and Zai. That was the most happening gathering where everything's like came to live. It was a full house which left the host, stunned, like the house had been seized by them. The good thing about that is, less work for the host! Hahahaha.... Gals, it was fun having you around....

These were some of the simple dishes that I had prepared recently....

Cupcakes order from Jid for her nephew, Faiz...




My 'sort of' open house menu....





Cupcakes for Ijah on the birthday...



The simple recipe that I'm going to post here today is a recipe from 'the mission to empty the fridge'! Haha... Here goes my cebur cebur tipu tipu recipe....
