Roti Naik Pahang


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....


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*

1 egg
2 tablespoons condensed milk
Water (weigh egg + condensed milk + water to make 300ml)

1. Into the breadmaker pan, pour in the water, egg and condensed milk. Add sugar.

4. Remove the dough from the pan and divide the dough into 20 equal portions. Roughly about 49 to 50g each.
5. Form each portion into a ball and arrange on a baking tray. Leave to rise for another 30 minutes or so.
6. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180c for 30 minutes or till golden brown.
7. Once out of the oven, brush with a bit of butter. Place on a wire rack to cool. Keep in an airtight container.

Have a nice day!

Yogurt Garlic Buns


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....


I found this recipe from Reese Kitchen. Just couldn't wait to give it a try after reading her review about the buns. And true as she had written, the bun is soft and lovely, especially when it was taken out of the oven! Thank you Reese for sharing the recipe with us.

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...


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.

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


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.
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....


Thank you to Pook of Daily Delicious for sharing this recipe with us. Allow me to re-post it here for the viewing pleasure of my visitors. Thanks.

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!

Rose shaped Pau

Thank you Wendy for sharing with us this lovely idea. All the best to you in The Masterchef Final.

Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : Wendy's Red bean Spiral Pau

Ingredients :

250ml warm water
100gm sugar
¼ tsp salt
500gm pau flour (low gluten flour)
1 sachet dry yeast
50gm shortening

Red bean paste for filling

Method : (using Bread Maker)

1. Into the bread maker pan, pour the lukewarm water. 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 shortening and leave the bread maker to finish the cycle.
4. Divide dough into 50gm portions.

Rose Shaped Buns by Wendy

1. Make small dough balls of 15gm each.
2. Flatten each ball and roll out flat.
3. With fingers, press the sides of the circle to make them flatter and to create ripples (uneveness) .
4. Arrange 6 pieces of flattened dough, half stacking on top of each other.
5. Start rolling from the first piece on the bottom.
6. With a chopstick, saw the roll, it will roll while you saw, creating a fatter center than the sides. Eventually it will break into 2.
7. Place rose buds upright on a piece of paper.
8. Let buns rise to double and steam on high heat for 12 minutes.

*Tip : Flatten out enough dough balls for one round of steaming before flattening out the rest. Keep dough in fridge to prevent over proofing while you slowly form the rose buds. And keep the formed rose buds in the fridge(covered) to slow down the 2nd proofing while you shape. This method does take time to complete.

Have a nice day!

Wordless Wednesday


Patience... there are limit to one's patience. Once the line is crossed, it may cause disastor. But if you are capable of handling it without harming anyone or even yourself, verbally or physically, I salute you.

This week, we've been tested with so many things. I am exhausted just to think about it. But then, I trust in Allah SWT. Allah SWT will only test us to that much which we can handle.

Chinese Fried Rice and Thank You Kjee!


When I first decided to have my own website, further encouraged by my sifoo Sis Hanieliza, all I had in mind was just to admire my not-so-pretty photos (but at that time, my photos are the prettiest in my eyes!) in the Internet! What other people think of the photos, I didn't even bother. Just to see them in my own website is enough to make my day! And that's one of the strongest reason, why I am attached to my kitchen! To have more photos! Hahaha...

Besides the kitchen story, the Fotopage is more like my daily diary back then in Malawi, Africa and I am really grateful I had done that. My computer got corrupted when we came back to Malaysia and most of the photos can't be saved. Sigh... At least, I have the photos in the Fotopage to recall the memories... alhamdulillah...

Little did I know, as time goes by, I made many friends and the best thing is, my website is recognized. Though I know I am not a somebody, but when my blog's url was first printed in Sis Norzailina Nordin's novel, Menanti Kasih, I was so excited. Mind you.. just the BLOG URL... nothing else. Hahaha.. poyo betul kan? After that I was approached by Sis Lily Haslina to contribute photos and recipes in Majalah Jelita. You can read more about it here.

Besides that, friends like Che Mat Gebu and Ummi Zaihadi, to name a few, helped to promote me though I don't stand the same leve as them. They are way well knowned than me with so many followers and fans. Thank you my dear friends.

Kjee yang comel. Gambar disnap oleh Che Mat Gebu yang comel juga.. :D

The latest was at Kjee's Blog. Kjee or the real name is Fauziah Abdul Samad , a celebrity, a script writer, a journalist and pardon me if I've left out anything else Kjee. Trully flattered. Thank you so much Kjee and thank you so much to each and everyone out there. You guys are the one who inspired me to continue blogging and it's not the other way round actually. Hugs to all.....

Orange Cupcakes


In case you don't know as if people cares... hahaha, I've re-activated my MamaFaMi's facebook account on the night of 30th September. Actually I intend to re-activate it on the 1st October but since I was not around that time (that would be a different story in a different entry, insyaAllah), so I did it earlier.

My oh my, after a few minutes I re-activated my account and posted the first photo, googled from Google Image, stating I'm Back... comments kept pouring in. And after a good few months not on FB, it was like.. oh my God, now how do I do this.. how do I do that! Hahaha...

Anyway in short, I'd like to thank all of you my dear friends for the warm welcome. Makes me feel appreciated. Thank you so much. But I must make sure I won't get carried away or I will vanish again from the FB world.

Wish me luck!


Made this cupcakes for Syahmi's birthday. No party though, just for us to enjoy. But my ganache didn't turn out as stiff as Jun's. I don't really know why. Anyway, thanks Jun for sharing the recipe with us...

Sorry Jun, I didn't do justice to your recipe..

Ingredients :

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil (i used melted butter)
3 eggs
3 tbsp cream cheese softened
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
orange zest

Method :

1. Preheat oven to 350'F.
2. Beat the eggs and to this add milk, orange juice, vege oil and orange zest. Set aside.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
4. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture and stir just to combine.
5. Add the cream cheese and combine well. Continue to mix for 2 minutes.
6. Pour batter 2/3 full in cup and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Note :

Original recipe baked in a bundt pan. And while it is still warm, brush with some orange syrup and glazed with sugar mixture to make it moist and have more flavour. I omit this since I turn this cake into cuppies and topped with chocolate ganache.

Have a nice day!
