Roti Naik Mertua Rozi

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

SHAMPOO...
Over these past 45 years of my life, I've used so many brands of shampoo. Every time someone else uses a good smelling shampoo, I'll ask for the brand name and will give it a try. But then, that doesn't last long. I still like the one that is my favourite and that would be the Clairol Herbal Essence...tak memasal je dah tolong promote kan...haha....

Speaking of this shampoo, I remembered my roomates when I was studying in ITM Shah Alam a good 28 years ago. I think they must have admired my hair..ok.. kita masuk mode P.E.R.A.S.A.N ye tuan tuan dan puan puan.... because then, everyone was using the same shampoo! Hahaha...

Why all of a sudden the story of shampoo?
Because, yesterday I bought my favourite shampoo after all these while! Hahahaha....


T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

This recipe was mentioned to me by MamaZieza sometime back. And so, i had CSI-ed it at her Fotopages. Thanks to Mamazieza and also to Rozi's mother-in-law for sharing.

Donut

I was browsing through the internet yesterday to look for something that I can make, to bring to Abang Ngah's Tahlil yesterday night. Came across this donut recipe that I've never tried before, at Rima's page which she got it from HaSue. The donuts turned out to be soft and lovely. I made it into bite sized donuts. Thank you to these two lovely ladies for sharing the recipe with us. Since I was running out of time, I just coat it with fine sugar.


DONUT
Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : HaSue via Rima


Ingredients :

500g high protein flour (i used half bread flour and half all purpose flour)
1 packet of instant yeast (11g)
50g Margarine (i used unsalted butter)
1 tbsp Shortening
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp condense milk or milk powder
1 egg (lightly beaten)
1/2 tsp salt
200ml warm water
Fine sugar for coating


Method :

1. In a big bowl, add warm water, yeast, sugar, milk, margarine and shortening and stir using spoon lightly and let it rest for 8-10 mins.
2. Once yeast mixture starting to bubble, add half of sifted flour into bowl, add egg and salt too... continue to stir using spoon (in one direction)
3. Once mixture incorporated and not sticking to your spoon, add another half of the sifted flour, mix lightly with spoon and quickly continue to knead dough using your hand till dough no longer sticking to the bowl (you will know if dough is ready when ur dough no longer stick to your fingers)
4. You don't have to let dough rest but if you want a much much more rounder donut, you may do so for 5 to 10 mins
5. Roll dough to about 1/2" thick and cut with donut cutter
6. Heat oil and deep fry donut on medium heat till golden brown (if u prefer a much more fluffier, do rest it for 10mins or so, the more lighter ur donut is, the more fluffier it will be)
7. Once cool, coat donut using fine sugar or melted chocolate..


Bread Maker method :

1. Pour water into the breadmaker pan. Add sugar, condensed milk, egg and salt.
2. Top it with flour. Select the dough function and press start.
3. When the dough is slightly incorporated, add in margarine and shortening and leave the bread maker to finish it's process which will takes about 1 1/2 hour or so.
4. Remove the dough from the pan.
Steps 5 till the end, is similar as the above.

Abang Ngah dalam kenangan

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Last Saturday night, at around 11.25pm, I received a sad news from my hubby's late cousin's family. Another member of the family, MOHD ARDLAN ALDA BIN ABD RAHMAN (26 years old) passed away peacefully, after being warded at Hospital Kuala Lumur for almost a month.



Abang Ngah as we used to call him, among the family, was such a nice boy. Very polite and very helpful in whatever way possible, just like his late dad. May Allah bless his soul… forgive him of his sins and grant him the highest levels of paradise….. Ameen.

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

I had a good laugh yesterday night.

I was actually exhausted towards the end of the day after doing all the house chores and also running some errands as well. I wanted to just relax infront of the laptop and tried to update my 'abandoned' blog but then came my sister in the yahoo messenger and we started chatting and she had asked me to find this oldies. Guess what, I got hooked with oldies! I listened to one after another. And that carried on till my facebook. I just wanted to share one song, but then came Nazrina Zamani. From one song, it became like 5 oldies on my wall... and the comments on those posts really made me laugh! Thanks for making my day! Hugs to all of you......

Apple, Carrot and Orange Coleslaw

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Last Tuesday morning, I put up a post in Facebook, asking how to get to Hospital Kuala Lumpur via commuter from Subang Jaya. Alhamdulillah, there are a number of friends who is more than willing to help. For that, I am very thankful. I am blessed to have such wonderful and helpful circle of friends around, just like Eiffa Fourgy had said....[quote] untung mama ramai kawan.... x sesat jln...[unquote]. Thanks to Nazrina a.k.a Bunga April, Nor Aliza Abdul Aziz, Zana Abd Majid, Rahman Roslina and Eilla Zalila to name a few, for all the suggestions. And not forgetting to my dearest Sister and her Arjuna for trying their best to help! Arjunaaaa??? Ahaks... mama pun dah sengal....

We took the commuter from Subang Jaya straight to Sentul Station. And yes, I ENJOYED THE TRAIN RIDE... ahaks.. kesian tol orang tua ni.. lom grow up lagi gamaknya!. When we got down at Sentul Station, we took a cab just outside the station. When we reached the hospital, hubby paid RM12.00 and we went straight to third floor to see Abang Ngah at the ICU unit. The moment I saw him, felt like bursting into tears but knowing that the family needs to be strong, I just held back the tears. It wasn't easy! My duaa, may Allah blessed Abang Ngah with the best, only HE knows what.

After like an hour or so at the hospital, we made our way home. We waited at the taxi stand in the Hospital area and none stop for almost 10 minutes. Then we decided to walk out of the hospital area and in less than 10 minutes time, we were in the cab to the commuter station. This time, the driver had the meter on. Guess what was the fare? RM6.80 and I actually enjoyed the music that he played on his cd player. Uji Rashid songs, my favourite artist. Just count how much the first taxi driver took as his 'TIPS'. Ish... how could he? Anyway, we just make halaal for all the 'extra tips' or otherwise, he'll be giving his family something not halaal right?

Hubby and my son, seeing how happy the mama was on the ride, decided to join in the happiness! Hahaha... We all had fun, didn't we guys?! Must do more often huh? Hahaha.....

I came across this coleslaw recipe from Wendy's lovely blog and decided to give it a go.

I just love the coleslaw. Thank you to Wendy for the simple yet lovely recipe. Allow me to share it here.

Basic Bread Recipe (a keeper)

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

I had such a wonderful weekend. Alhamdulillah.

On Saturday, hubby gave me his permission to have Girls' Day Out with my sister and her 'happening' friends, Suryani and Hazlinda. We went to watch Ombak Rindu, the lastest Malay film in the cinema, on Suryani. Thank you dearie...bolehlah belanja selalu, murah rezeki you... i like..... We chose to watch at the TGV at Sunway Pyramid. Goodness, to find a parking space there, at 11 am, is very challenging. We had to go round and round the parking lot. Luckily it was Mak Chu who's driving and us (me and Hazlinda) giving her the moral support she needed.... hahahaha.... Finally we managed to find parking at the 5th floor. Then the 'challenge' to find the cinema begins as all of us are not that familiar with Sunway Pyramid! What a good excercise we had! Managed to reach TGV to find Suryani waiting patiently (ye ke?? Ahaks.. siap cekak pinggang bagai kooo... sorry beb..traffic jam... ahaks... alasan klise) for us. We entered the cinema just 5 minutes before the show begins. Right on time!

I have not read the novel by Fauziah Ashari, so I don't really know what to expect. But I was all ready to shed lots of tears as I understand, the movie will be a very touchy one, from the reviews that I had read. I brought a face towel and a packet of tissue with me. But guess what, it didn't happen at all and I am amazed with myself for being so strong! All thanks to ONE of us who really cried her heart out while watching! Hehehehe... I didn't use my face towel, only the packet of tissue. Not to wipe my tears but HERS. Hehehe..... It was a lovely movie... sad, funny, angry, romantic.. all in...

After the movie, we had lunch at Penyet Express. My first time eating Ayam Penyet and it was not disappointing. Then we went to Popular Bookshop and I managed to grab one new novel... haven't read yet as I have quite a pile waiting in queue! I'd like to thank Mak Chu, Suryani and Hazlinda for the lovely day out.... I'm refreshed now! Thank you girls... muah muah muah....

And yesterday... my lovely day out with darling hubby... thank you love......


T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

Made these buns for my sister and her two buddies. Started preparing the bread soon after Fajr prayers and managed to get it baked before we leave for Sunway Pyramid. Guess what, I didn't keep the buns in an airtight container till we got back after 4 pm because I took the buns out of the oven, just before leaving. But the buns stayed soft! I just love this recipe. Posted it once before, but I'll post it again here with a slight change. THIS RECIPE IS DEFINATELY A KEEPER, one of the best to me.

Coffee Pecan Muffin

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

In case any of you are wondering, why I had been missing from the cyberworld, here are the few excuses reasons that I can think of.

1. Towards the end of the school term, the whole family was not keeping well. Infact Syahmi didn't go to school on the last day of the term because he was down with flu. I had to pump myself with lots of liquid, vitamins and whatever possible suppliments in order to avoid myself from catching the virus.
2. I went for a minor lipoma removal operation at KPJ Selangor last 21st November. Stayed at the hospital for 3 days. Thank you to Dr Askandar, Dr Suraya, all the staffs at the 5th floor and also those at the admin and X-Ray section. Alhamdulillah, at the moment, I am still taking it easy on everything, though many didn't think so! Hahaha...

3. And while being in this situation, I took the opportunity to read as many novels as I can. Some I've managed to upload on my other blog, MamaFaMi's Journey of Life.

COFFEE PECAN MUFFIN
Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : Jo's Deli Bakery via Nurdia


Ingredients :

180g all-purpose flour
195g superfine flour
5 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
210g castor sugar

2 large eggs, lightly beaten
300ml milk

3 tablespoons instant coffee powder
130g butter, melted and cooled

200g pecans, toasted and chopped

Method :

1. Preheat oven at 200 degC. Line muffin tray with paper cups.

2. Sift flours, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Add sugar into the flour mixture. Use a whisk to lightly blend the mixture.

3. Dissolve instant coffee powder in milk.

4. In another mixing bowl, combine egg, coffee solution and melted butter.

5. Make a well in the middle of dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients and mix just until all the flour is moistened. Fold chopped pecans into batter. The batter should look lumpy. Do not overmix.

6. Divide batter into 12 muffin cups. Reduce temperature to 180degC and bake muffins for 25-30 minutes or until well risen.

7. Transfer to wire racks to let cool.

Note :

1. Chewy texture is undesirable in the preparation of muffins. Therefore, only minimum mixing is required to produce tender products. There are two methods in the preparation of muffins, namely the muffin method and the creaming method.

•The muffin method - Dry ingredients and wet ingredients are prepared separately in two mixing bowls. They are then mixed until the dry ingredients are just moistened by the wet ones. This method is easier and faster than the creaming method. However, there is a tendency of overmixing the batter which results in tough texture.

•The creaming method - Fat, sugar and salt are creamed until light and fluffy. Eggs are than added, one at a time. Add liquids and finally fold in flour and baking powder. Mix until just smooth. Although this method is time consuming, possibility of overmixing is actually low.

2. Basic baker's percentage of muffins:

•Flour 100%
•Sugar 60%
•Baking powder 6%
•Salt 1.25%
•Egg 20%
•Milk 80%
•Fat 30%

Roti Planta Manis

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

To be honest, I had not been doing much in the kitchen lately. My kitchen is just to prepare one meal a day and that's it. And that also, is because my mom is with us at the moment. Otherwise, I think the kitchen will stay in peace for quite a while. I am just not in the mood to try anything, but that does not mean I didn't print any new recipes from the net! I print recipes almost everyday! Hahaha...

I was so into reading. I had just finished reading YES BOSS by Areila Sahimi. I enjoy reading Eila's writing because it's not too heavy and it's just nice. I've read all her books and can't wait for her new book to be released!

When I read a novel, I will potray the characters as someone that I know in real life. In that way, I can actually have visions in my head as well to make the story comes to live. Achewa... baik punya berangan tawww.... Well, in Yes Boss, I see Fahrin Ahmad as Ilham Irfan (by the way, I like the name Ilham), Scha as Aryana, Datuk Rahim Razali as Datuk Maarof, Sheila Mambo as Datin Rokiah Kamsan, Sharifah Amani as Kak Nani, Normah Damanhuri as Mak Ngah Shamsiah, Shaheizy Sam as Abang Harun. To those who had read this novel, what do you think of my line of actor and actresses? Ngam tak? Hehehehe....

Haiyeee... I'm here.. purposely didn't say, I'm back or otherwise people will think I'm back to stay, which I can't really promise! Hahaha...

So did you guys have a wonderful Eid-Ul-Adha? I had a wonderful time...going nowhere... doing nothing... and above all, cooking nothing! All we did was just lazying around in the house... watching TV, playing games, surfing the net and me... reading my story book! FINALLY I managed to finish reading Pretty Woman by Fern Michaels. Took ages for me to finish one book! Huhuhu... time is one reason but then the main reason is, I kept dozing off everytime I finished reading one page!!! Huhuhuhu.... Anyway, now I am starting on my newly bought novel... YES BOSS by Areila Sahimi... yessszaaa.....

I still can't get my mind off Roti Manis's bread production. They looked so gorgeous and so yummilicious that I feel like licking the laptop screen! I had to do something! And actually I did. But since the end product looked something like the Jaw's teeth, I don't feel like putting up the photo. Yesterday I baked another batch and this time, it looked much better! Hahaha... less scary if you ask me... It was a bread recipe by Roshayati Johari, which I've tried years back. But this one was altered slightly by the proud owner of Roti Manis, Puan Liza Othman

Penang Char Kue Tiau

Just a quick update today as my to-do list is so long and my list of wish-to-do is of the same length! We'll see what I end up with... hopefully, I'll managed to settle at least 50% of the to-do list and try to forget about the wish-to-do! Hahaha....

Anyway, last Monday evening, my brother didn't tell me in good time, that he's coming over to fetch my mom. He only called me when he was on the way here. I normally will bake or cook something for him to bring home for my nephew and nieces. Given so little time to think, I managed to bake some puffs and cooked Char Kue Tiau Penang (first trial) for mom to break her fast. So in 45 minutes time, and considered just the perfect timing, mom managed to break her fast without having to fast extra time and I am a happy aunt to be able to pack something for her nephew and nieces. Hahaha.. do I feel like I am in MasterChef? Well, the feel is there but never in my life, imagining myself entering the contest. Will fail in the first step! Trust me! Hahaha....

I was watching this Youtube on how to fry char kue tiau and decided to give it a try, though frankly speaking, I have doubts at first. It can't be that easy and yet tasty, can it? Well, if you don't dare to try, then it will stay as a questionmark forever... so yes, no harm trying.. surprisingly, it tasted good though not as good as the Pakcik at Upin Ipin Restaurant's Char Kue Tiau. Why? Because the very same night, we went for the pakcik's char kue tiau! Hahahaha....

For the recipe, please adjust the amount of the ingredients according to your tastebuds ya. You can refer to the Youtube too for the cooking demo.

Roti Naik Pahang

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

HAPPY DIWALI to all my Hindu friends. One of them that I know is LOVE the proud owner of the lovely blog LOVE2COOK. Do pay her a visit and enjoy all her lovely food photos and also her two adorable kids.

Yesterday night, hubby and me went to visit our girl at her Uni. I brought for her some muffins and buns, fresh from the oven. While waiting, hubby fell asleep. He wakes up early in the morning everyday to go to work, just to avoid the traffic. When I was all ready to go, it was like 8.40pm. He was still sleepy but insisted on driving. When we reached the car park, he continued sleeping. I went to Fatin's room and did whatever I have to do and we went back to the car. Hubby was still fast asleep. We let him continue sleeping while both of us went to the cafe nearby and had a lovely dinner, on Fatin! Not worried about hubby because he had his dinner at home. Maybe he over-ate, that's why he's sleepy! Hahaha... Anyway, I had a nice time with my girl yesterday.... Thank you kakak. Love yer.. next time belanja mama yang mahal punya pulak okay! Ahaks....

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

Yesterday's hot topic was Roti Naik. All thanks to Sis Lin. I visited her blog and came across this Roti Naik photo. I thought she made the roti naik herself and since I am 'allergic' to bread recipes, I just had to click on that entry. Oh me oh my, now all the bread photos really makes me go haywire! All the lovely buns were from Roti Manis's kitchen. Sis Lin was just helping to promote the business. Do LIKE the page and feast your eyes upon all the lovely bread she has to offer. Just don't go haywire like me! Hahaha...

Then I read this post at Resepi Turun Temurun Keluarga by Mlong Tipah and copied down the recipe. Straight to the kitchen and start the mission. And the end product is so lovely! I followed the recipe exactly and managed to get 20 cute buns. Thank you so much to Tok Mak and Mlong Tipah for sharing this lovely recipe with us. It's indeed a keeper...

Updated : There's a slight confusion here that I need to make it straight. This recipe is actually from Tok Mak and was tested and posted to FB by Mlong Tipah. I thought it was Mlong Tipah's grandmother's recipe. Hahaha.. so sorry Tok Mak! There.. I've put things right.. did I Tok Mak? *wink*

Yogurt Garlic Buns

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Be organised! That was one thing that I didn't have with me last week and what a havoc time I had especially last Saturday! But alhamdulillah I managed to get everything settled with no harm done. Guess it's true, I worked best under pressure! But if given a choice, I wouldn't want that to happen again! It's so exhausting! Just to rewind the 'incident' makes me tired already!

It all started when Fatin decided to come home last minute, last Friday. And she said that she's only going back to the Uni on Sunday. But then had to go back that very Friday night as she had been called to a meeting that night. Then the same night, cousin's nephew and niece decided to sleep over at our place. Last minute too... Luckily the room just needs a little tidying. And since Fatin was around that evening, I didn't get to bake the brownies for orders in the evening. Alhamdulillah I followed my instinct to bake it the same night!

The next morning, when I was preparing breakfast, our friends from Teluk Intan texted me, saying they are coming over to our place at noon. At 11am, when I was busy cooking, my instinct again, told me to check the wedding invitation card. All these while I thought it's going to be at night and that was exactly what I told hubby. So hubby went golfing. When I opened the card, OH MY GOD... the reception is from 12.30 noon till 4pm. Oh me oh my, the way I panicked!!! I am VERY GOOD at that, if you must know! Hahaha... I had phoned my sister in law if she could take mom to the wedding reception (my cousin's son's). Unfortunately she was not feeling well and my brother was away in Bandung for a conference. I called my another 'talian hayat' (my cousin) and she said she's going and willing to take my mom along. The moment she said she will take my mom with her, I felt like a huge boulder was lifted up off my head! Thank you sis Karimah.. you're my life saver!

Towards the end of the day, all went well and I slept in peace.... alhamdulillah....

Pavlova

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Thank God I managed to find my way into my blog. With all the cobwebs hanging all over the place, and dirt almost an inch thick... pheww.... Yes, this blog had been ignored for a few days. Not by choice actually. Time is just not on my side...anyway I am back, hopefully to stay...

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

My cousin once asked me, if I knew how to make Pavlova as my aunt loves to eat them. When she said she's coming over to my place, I went through the internet to look for a good recipe of Pavlova. Of course, a good recipe should come from a good blog owned by a good cook, don't you think so? One of them is Rima of Bisous a Toi. Love her photos and also her recipes. For this recipe, I just took the meringue part. I didn't do the passionfruit sauce as I don't have any passionfruits at home. Thank you Rima for sharing with us this lovely recipe. My aunt even asked to bring home the undressed pavlova.


PAVLOVA
Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : Rima of Bisous a Toi


Ingredients :

150ml eggwhite (approximately 4 eggs)
1 cup (220g) caster (superfine) sugar
2 tablespoons cornflour (cornstarch), sifted
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (if u wish to hv a white Pavlova .. omit vanilla ok) orange oil


Method :

1. Preheat oven to 150°C (300°F).
2. Place the eggwhite in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, whisking well, until the mixture is stiff and glossy.
3. Add the cornflour and vinegar and whisk until just combined.
4. Line a baking sheet with non-stick baking paper. Use a 6cm diameter cake ring to outline 18 circles and turn the baking paper over (so the meringue does not touch the pencil marks.
5. Spoon the egg white mixture into a piping bag fitted with No. 9 nozzle. Pipe 18 swirls following the outlines on the marked paper. Pipe flowers along edges of swirls on to each meringue.
6. Reduce oven to 120°C (250°F) and bake for 1 hour 20 minutes. Turn the oven off and allow the pavlova to cool completely in the oven.


Topping :

Whipped cream - I used the canned whipped cream.
Fresh fruits - I used Kiwi, orange and frozen strawberries

Pipe some cream over the Pavlova, top with Kiwi, orange and strawberries and serve immediately.


Have a nice day!

Sausage Cheese Rolls

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Did you see the fried fish photo, that I had posted in my facebook wall? See the intact skin even after frying? Well, there's a story behind that actually.

When I was younger... sekarang ni masih young juga... tapi young purba... ahahaha... during my teenage years, I've always tried my best to be as perfect as possible, though obviously that's not really possible because nobody's perfect right.
Why?
Because I want to make my parents proud of me when I got married. I want my inlaws to think highly of my parents and the way they had brought me up. One of it is my kitchen's skill. I like to read the petua-petua or tips especially when cooking. And one of the tips that I'm still following is how to fry fish without the skin sticking to your frying pan even when not using the non-stick pan. And after that, everytime I fry the fish and it came out nice, I will say to myself, "Mesti mak mertua kata, pandai menantu mak goreng ikan!" Hahahahaha...(translation : Mom In Law will say, wow, my daughter in law is so clever at frying fish!) my goodness! When I think of that again...isn't that embarrassing! Gedik betul perempuan ni... hahahaha...

Update : Ingatkan tak ada orang yang nak tahu apa tips nya, rupanya ada ye. Mommy Kam, petua yang mama gunakan... panaskan minyak, lepas tu sprinkle sket garam dalam minyak, baru masukkan ikan... ce terai ce terai.... semoga berjaya dan saham depan  mata MIL akan naik ye... ahaks....

SAUSAGE CHEESE ROLLS
Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : Pook


Ingredients :

300 g bread flour
5g instant dried yeast
10g sugar
6g salt
30g unsalted butter (soft)
220-230g one egg plus whole milk
12 pieces sausage
6 slices processed cheese slices individually wrapped in plastic (cut into half)

One egg plus 2 tsp of water for glazing

Bread machine method :

1. Into the bread maker pan, pour the milk and egg. Add sugar and salt.
2. Top it with flour and drizzle the dry yeast. Select the dough setting and press start.
3. When the ingredients is just combined, add in the unsalted butter and leave the bread maker to finish the cycle.
4. Take the dough out of the bowl, deflate by touching it lightly. Cut the dough into 12 pieces, roll into a ball and let them rest for 10 minutes.



5. Using a rolling pin to roll the dough into an oval shape, place the sausage in the middle, cut both side of the dough into strips, and place half of the cheese slice over the sausage. Fold the strips alternating the left and right over the sausage.
6. Place the dough on the oven sheet, lined with non stick baking paper (the cheese will melt while baking and some will leak). Preheat the oven to 200°C. Let the dough rise until almost double in size, brush with egg wash. Bake for 8 minutes then reduce the temperature to 180°C and bake for 5 minutes more or until the rolls are golden brown.

Note : I made 2 rolls with chicken floss filling for my mom.



Have a nice day!
