Onion Rings

Recipe by AllRecipes

Absolutely perfect! 


This is my first time cooking and EAT-ing onion rings! The reason is that I never ate restaurant 's onion rings due to it is very expensive. I think the price is around RM8-9? And for less than one onion only? So, I told myself I have to do it by myself in one day! And I been talking about this since last year,. Oh well, at least I still cooked it. :D 

Damn this is yummy! Such a great recipe and so easy to prepare them. "Crispy on the outside, tender in the inside", with onion it's natural sweet, ha! Who can resist it? :D

INGREDIENTS:
1 large onion, cut into 1/4 inches slices
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
3/4 cup dry bread crumb or more
seasoned salt to taste

METHOD: 
1. Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).

2. Separate the onion slices into rings, and set aside. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt.

3. Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated; set aside. Whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture using a fork. Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat, then place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops dripping. The wire rack may be placed over a sheet of aluminum foil for easier clean up. Spread the bread crumbs out on a plate or shallow dish. Place rings one at a time into the crumbs, and scoop the crumbs up over the ring to coat. Give it a hard tap as you remove it from the crumbs. The coating should cling very well. Repeat with remaining rings. 

4. Deep fry the rings a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain. Season with seasoning salt, and serve.



Lastly, thank you so much for dropping by! *hugsss* I wishing you have a great day! Enjoy yea! ^^

Homemade Cheez It Crackers


Hey guys! I guess I have never bake any crackers yet so far in my life. 

Accidentally I found this recipe in the Pinterest! Actually, Pinterest is such a good place to seek for recipes. They got lots of recipes and the most important is their photos are awesome! I subscribed to it just to see the photos actually. And they are so sweet, sometime they will update it and send it to my hotmail. How sweet it that! I love Pinterest!! ^_^

Okay, I first seen this crackers and looked at the ingredients, how easy to get them. (Oh yes! It's cheese!) So, I decided to give it a try. But, the cheddar cheese in my fridge actually I need it to bake potato cheese and now I think I have to buy it again. Goshhhhh!! This crackers are very delicious! And they are quite addictive! (My brotherS finished most of them!) Salty & cheezy in taste and crispy in texture man! I am really happy of the outcome! 

Cheez it, a cute little snack that I believe will be loved by cheese lover, and I.... love it to the MAX! :D 


Recipe by Shopgirl via Pinterest
INGREDIENTS: 
8 oz cheddar cheese (shredded)
60g unsalted butter (soften)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
3-4 tbsp ice water

METHOD:

1. First, mix together the shredded cheese,  half of the salt and the softened butter. Add in the flour and mix until the dough looks like little fluffy clumps. Then, with the mixer running begin adding the ice water and mix until a soft dough forms. ( I use hand to do it.)

2. Divide the dough in two, form each into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes. Then, roll the dough out on a floured surface into about an 1/8 inch thickness and using a fluted pastry cutter, cut the dough into about 1 inch squares.

3. Preheat your oven to 200 celcius and line your baking sheets with parchment paper. Transfer your little cheez-its onto the parchment paper, make a hole in the center of each with a toothpick/chopstick, then sprinkle them with the rest of the salt. 

4. Bake for about 15 minutes (8 minutes without fan, 7 minutes with fan on). Baking time will depend on your oven, just watch them carefully so they don't burn!), or until they have puffed up and
the edges begin to brown. Let cool before eating. (They are best eaten right away, but you can store them in an airtight container).



Lastly, thank you so much for dropping by! *hugsss*
I wishing you have a great day!
Enjoy yea! ^^

Durian Cheesecake



Tada! It's durian time again! 

I stored up a lot of durian meat in my freezer since the latest durian season. My mom bought a lot of durian back home...about 30 pieces? Hehe just when we gather all the durian together, it formed a small durian hill. :P And the worst is coming.... opening durian...take out the meat....bla bla bla... 30pieces of durian!! Not that easy ._. yea, your hand will be tired, especially fingers.

But, what can we do? Me and my family love durian so much and wish that we can eat durian ALL the time. My dad so cute, sometime he will take out some and put in a small bowl and enjoy it as his tea break. hehe. (Actually the main purpose for me to store the durian is to transform them into dessert.)

Since it's been a long time I didn't do anything about durian, why not I try it on cheese cake? Cheese, which is already very rich; and durian very rich too..... wow imagine when they combine together, SUPER RICH!!

Creamy Butter Chicken (Wet)



It's been a long long time that I didn't eat and cook this dish anymore. Normally at the restaurant, I will order a dry version of butter chicken, but not the wet type. Cause I love the dry egg part, so yummy! 

Few days ago, a friend of mine in facebook was asking me how to cook the wet version butter chicken . Since it's been a long time that I didn't eat it, and.....and the next day.. I straight away bought the ingredients. The happy thing for this dish are the ingredients can be gotten easily from the supermarket. 

I did this together with my boyfriend. He fried the chicken, and I get ready the remaining seasoning. 2 person cooking one dish, makes the work faster, and I can eat the dish faster too :P hehehe.  But, it also got the disadvantage, normally when I fry the chicken alone, I will 'taste' it...don't care whether it's hot or not. But now, can't taste it anymore T^T He will scold me!

This dishes is worth trying. Easy, simple and yummy. Unless you don't like the wet version of butter chicken. If you love it, you got to try this. It's almost the same taste as in the restaurant, better even! My brother said. Actually, I think this way too. Hehehe. Next time when I cook again, I will add more milk and pull up the chicken from the wok faster, but don't let the milk boil in the wok too long, cause the gravy will lessen! No way.... I love the gravy on my rice~~~




Recipe by Ah Tee Kitchen
INGREDIENTS: 
Chicken Breast 1 (Mine is 630g, cut into cube size so that when frying the chicken, the juice will not dry out easily)

Egg white 1.5 tbsp
Flour 1.5 tbsp
Salt 1/2 tsp

SEASONING

Sugar 3/4 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp

METHOD:
1. Fry the marinated chicken until it reach golden in colour. Left it aside.
2. Heat the wok, melt the butter. Add in garlic, curry leaves and chilies, stir fry until fragrant.
3. Add in evaporate milk and seasoning, let it boil, when the gravy start to get thick, add in fried chicken.

TIRAMISU (With video attached)




Tiramisu ([tiɾamiˈsu]Italian spelling: Tiramisù; lit. "pick me up" or "lift me up") is an Italian dessert. It is made of ladyfingers (Italian: Savoiardi) dipped in coffee and alcohol, layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks, egg whites and mascarpone cheese, and flavored with cocoa powder.

YUM!! This is the second time I made Tiramisu. The first time I make was few months ago. The recipe that I used was so bad. It felt like eating cream. Tons of cream! SO FAT T_T Straight away throw the recipe after that so that's why I din't upload it here. I will only upload yummy recipe =)




I found this Tiramisu recipe from facebook which was shared by a hong kong girl(I guess) with their video attached on it. Just looking at the video and I guarantee you can make your Tiramisu straight away. Yea it's true. With such an easy step and it can turned out into a simply yummy Tiramisu. I felt proud of myself when the time I sift cocoa powder on it. hehehe. 

Too bad, I only can make half of this recipe as my lady fingers were not enough. And it's not enough for my family member. It only can serve 3-4 peoples. The texture is quite smooth and I substitute mascarpone cheese with (cream cheese + 1tbsp yogurt) as I can't find good mascarpone cheese at my hometown here. For me, the taste is quite yummy. I just can't stop my mouth from eating it. Dessert? Such good food...but....can't eat more! =(

RECIPE over HERE <<<------------------


Yumm... one bite is definitely not enough...

Many bite by me and my mom! :P

Pouring time :D




You got to do it! So easy...so yummy.... ^_^

Mango Lassi





Lassi is a popular, traditional, yogurt based drink in Indian's Punjab. It can be prepared in two ways, sweet and salty.  I prefer a sweet one than salty one, i think? :P cause with the sweet one it comes with fruits. I love fruits! It will be better if got the fruit's pulp inside it. 

Lassi is so easy to prepare. You just need a blender and put everything into the blender and blend it. Then, DONE!! Since it's mango season now, so I am going to try it out with mango lassi. And it requires lots of yogurt which yogurt can be very expensive here, so I made it earlier. It not just to reduce the cost, I also can adjust the thickness and sweetness of my yogurt

Recipe by, food4tots
INGREDIENTS:
2 large fully ripen mangoes (about 430g) - chilled, peeled, remove and cut into chunks.
8 Tbsp plain yogurt
4 Tbsp milk(Chilled)
6 small ice cubes(i ignored it)
3 Tbsp honey(more or less, depends on your sweetness of your mangoes)

METHOD:
Put everything in the blender and blend until smooth. Adjust the sweetness if necessary. Best to be consumed within a day. 

Tada~ It's DONE! so easy right! >.<

An easy way to make yogurt


Hey guys I am back to blog again! Gosh, been so so so busy with my real life recently! Anyway, today I am going to share with you a yogurt recipe which is very very easy to make.

Do you know you can make your own yogurt at home in just 10 minutes? And no machine is required? Yes! Believe your eyes dude! Before I learn baking I used to make yogurt all the time cause it is really easy. I don't really love store bought yogurt. They are too runny yet sweet and not much in it. And, they are quite costly when you want to use it for baking or cooking. For me, I prefer a sugarless but more sour yogurt. Just like Greek style yogurt.



Normally, When I make it, I wont add in extra sugar. It's depends on you actually. And, after I store it up, I prefer to store for at least 2 days or more cause I really love the thick texture. The longer you keep it, the thicker it will be. With so much yogurt, you can use it for salad dressing, or transform it into ice cream which I am going to try it out soon! ^^

Produced 1 liter of Yogurt
INGREDIENTS:
Milk 1 liter(I used full cream milk)
Yogurt 1

METHOD:


1. Separate milk into 500ml each. Heat up 500ml of milk just to boil it. Another 500ml remains the same.

2. Now pour hot milk to another part of milk, stir it. Add in yogurt and stir again. (At this point you can add in sugar if you prefer sweet one.) Sieve it to get a smooth and silky texture.
3. Put aside. Not fridge for at least 6 hours or more to let the bacteria grow in it's warm bed. 
4. If you don't like runny yogurt, let it ferment inside the fridge until it reach your desire. If you prefer runny, there you go!






Put it aside.

I choose to use full cream milk.

tada!!! :P

Coffee Cake (Fathers' Day)

My model :P

This year I celebrate Fathers' Day earlier than last year. Cause my dad is going offshore one week before father day. T^T He went offshore on Monday and he came back in the afternoon. Because the wave is too strong and the the ship had to come back. It's dangerous! And my dad kept on vomiting due to  sea-sickness.T^T pity daddy...... I thought his company will rest for a few days and let the wave be calm. Who knows! On the second day they 'try' on the wave again!! And still the same, they had to come back after that. Until the third day which is yesterday, they 'try' again. The ship should reach at 3pm but at around 11am, the wave is incredible crazy. The height of the wave is higher than the ship and the ship is shaking left and right! Some of the water went into the ship! And my dad's colleagues are fell down aside. My dad told me this because he came back after that. It's been the third time already sigh. This morning they went AGAIN. AGAIN. This time I am really worrying about my dad cause I remember last night the wind and rain were quite strong.. Before I went to work this morning, I try to call him up and thanks God I can reach him. Just don't know why when I listened to his voice my tears start to drop... I just wish my dad will reach safely with his colleague please. *praying hard*




My dad love coffee so so much. Such a coffee addict-er and I believe it goes to the others father...? hmm? The time I ask myself what my daddy love to eat? In my mind will only appear Coffee!! and Kolok mee!! and actually he eats everything.. (Recently he fell in love with Mcd) :P

But he is my dad! I should make something to make him happy =) And here I made this cake. This cake smell incredible while baking and when I am mixing the icing part. And taste yummy with its strong coffee taste. You can't reduce too much sugar in this cake as the coffee's origin taste is bitter. I baked the cake when my dad was at home. He kept on staring at the cake when the cake is baking. How cute is that? :P I wish I can bring him for a trip with mom and brothers next year. I need to earn hard! Wait for us, dad! ^^

This recipe is fantastic, as well as Jamie Oliver. I love him; I am his fan!! Love to see his shows on the TV . He is freaking incredible... Just love the way he cook and the way he decorate the foods. Seriously I love his chopping board so so much. Do you? :P

I love this brownies, but luckily I have reduce the amount of sugar, else will be freaking sweet. But, even though I reduced it, still a little sweet. Anyhow, this brownies taste slightly bitter yet sweet. Moist and soft in the middle. Yum!! ^^ You should try this recipe. so easy to make and the ingredients are easy to get! Trust me this is yummy!

By Jamie Oliver's Little book of big via somebody's blog

INGREDIENTS:
Unsalted butter 150g (Original 250g)
Dark chocolate 200g
Cocoa powder 80g, sifted
Flour 65g, sifted
Baking powder 1 Tsp
Castor sugar 160g (Original 360g)
Large eggs 4

METHOD:
1. Preheat oven at 180 Celsius. (With fan on.)
2. Melt butter and dark chocolate over a double boiler and mic until smooth.
3. In a separate bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sugar, and then add this to the chocolate mixture.
4. Beat in the eggs and mix in until you have a silky consistency.
5. Pour your brownie mixture into the baking tray, bake for around 25 minutes.

NOTE**
You don't want to overcook them so, unlike cakes, you don't want a skewer to come out all clean. The brownies should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle. Allow to cool in the tray then carefully transfer to a large chopping board and cut into chunky squares.

Only Garlic Fried Rice

What to do with leftover and overnight rice?

Stir fry it for sure! =D If want to stir fry rice, overnight rice is the best as it is not really moist. So that, the rice will not stick on the wok while stir frying.....


I love garlic. They have a fragrance smell and taste incredible. I always wanted to stir fry rice with ONLY garlic. Imagine all the little rices coated with garlic oil, Gosh I could not resist that! Once you bite the rices, and straight inside your mouth will surrounded by the fragrance of garlic. hmmmmm yum~~~ I just can't stop eating it.


INGREDIENTS:
Olive oil
Minced Garlic (depends on you. I put a lot.)
Cold cooked rices 2 Bowls
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
Fish sauce a few drops

METHOD:
1. Heat up olive oil in the wok, generously put in the minced garlic and stir fry with low heat, until it turns into golden in colour. Do not overcook as dark garlic will taste bitter.
2. Add in cooked rice. Later fish sauce, salt and pepper to taste.
