Roti Naik Improvised


Last Saturday night, I received a text message on my handphone from Sis Lily Haslina. That time I was fast asleep. I didn't even hear the message came in. I guess I was really tired after a very hectic and busy week. It was at 4 am in the morning that I read the message. Of course I didn't reply immediately! Haha... Sis Lily had told me about the exciting news. Well, exciting to me but maybe not to others. How can I not be excited when the photos that I took myself of my own cooking is published in the magazine. To be precise, Jelita, February 2011. Thank you sis Lily for making all these a reality and I will cheerish this forever......

I can still remember the very first time I saw my food photo in the internet. It was a long time ago when I was still in Malawi. I've tried a bread recipe texted by my sister. And it so happens, the bread turned out good. And my photo, well, at that time, I guess was just so lovely to my eyes! I then showed it to Kak Liza. She had asked my permission to share the photo in Forum Cari. I was reluctant at first but after being persuaded, I finally agreed. And that's the beginning of me being known as MAMAFAMI. When Kak Liza told me that she had posted my bread photo in the Forum, I was soooooo excited. Not only me, but the whole family was excited. First time seeing your own production in the cyberworld! Gosh, that excitement lasted quite a long time! Every morning, I will click on that particular page, just to admire my own photo... hahahahaha... come to think of it, how silly can a person be huh? But yeah, that's me... I am proud of my own work!


Remember the Roti Naik that I did before? The one of Puan Asmahan Hanim's recipe. The recipe can be found here'Well, like I said, the texture was lovely, infact everything about the recipe is lovely except for the ghee which is not really to my favour.

So I said to myself, I am going to try baking this buns again and will adjust the recipe to suit my taste. Before trying the new version, I had done a bit of research. I had asked my relative and a Johorean friend, how exactly this Roti Naik Johor supposed to taste like. Thanks to Kak Karimah and Haslinda for helping me out. So, this is what I came out with. And I am very happy with the result.....

Adapted from Roti Naik Puan Asmahan Hanim

Ingredients :

1 cup lukewarm water
1 egg yolk (grade A)
180g sugar
35g shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
a few drops of yellow food coloring
500g flour (I added more, I think about 100g more or less)
3g instant dried yeast
110g margarine

1 egg + a bit of fresh milk (for egg wash the buns)
a bit of butter for glazing

Bread Maker method :

1. Pour water, egg, sugar, shortening, vanilla and yellow food coloring into the bread maker pan. Top it with flour and yeast.
2. Set the breadmaker to Dough function.
3. Once the dough is just combined, add in margarine. Leave the Breadmaker to continue doing it's job. This process will take about 1 1/2 hour including prooving.
4. Divide the dough into 20 equal portions. Form each into a ball and arrange on a baking tray.
5. Cover the buns and let it rise until double in size (it takes another 30-40 min) Brush the buns with some egg wash.
7. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 C 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
8. 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!
