Laksa Utara Mom's Style

I have captured this photo almost 3 weeks ago but I was too busy to write this lately. Ya, it was during last Aidil Adha... Mom cooked Laksa for us, and we ate it for 3 days with additional some other food and dishes off course. Because all of us are MONSTERS... we eat everything and a lots plus 'MUST BE TASTY' .... By the way... mom, abah and kiddos left to Jitra again 2 days ago. Kuala Lumpur seems to be a lonely place once again, I don't know... When everybody is around, the house is filled with love. But I am still lucky to have love all around me, love waiting for me and love kept longing in my heart.... In short, love is all around no matter where you are. Like right here in Malaysia... no matter where you go, you can always find Laksa anywhere.
There are many kinds of Laksa, for as I know... Laksa Sarawak, Laksa Johor and Laksa Utara or Laksa Penang. It was named by the state originated, Laksa Utara or Laksa Penang came from northern itself. Rice noodle serve with sour soup made of fish, normally Mackeral or Tuna is used for the soup. The fish was bring to boil earlier and pounded or blended, then the bones are separated from the meat. With sufficient water and other blended ingredients added into the fish, soup shouldn't be too thick or too dilute ... It is well served with hard boiled egg, shredded cucumber, lettuce, onion and pineapple, lime wedge and not to forget chili and shrimp paste or 'Sambal Belacan'... that's KICKING for sure....



Green Beans Sweet Porridge

Sweet... Delicious ... Healthy... that's how I described this wonderful dessert. Green Beans Sweet Porridge, this all time favorite dessert ... back in Manila, I learned how to cook Champorado ...Chocolate Rice Porridge, glutinous rice cooked in milk and chocolate powder... a good choice for breakfast. There is similarity in Asian's dishes, for example this Green Beans Porridge ...In Indonesia, Japan and Vietnam... Where in Bangkok, there are many varieties of sweet soup or sweet porridge which you can easily buy from the street. Ya, it is colorful, nice and cheap... my love for street food. All kind of sweet soups, Mung beans, Jackfruits, rice dumplings, yam and sweet corn. The sweet porridge and coconut milk are cooked separately, when ready to serve then only mix it together with thick coconut milk.
Our sweet porridge here usually cooked with coconut milk and add in sagu mata ikan (tapioca pearl drops), but mom prefer to cook with evaporated milk instead of coconut milk... less cholesterol and healthier. For me, I love the milky taste and it is non oily. Since everybody is still in holiday mood, which means food fiesta... Mom cooked one big pot of green beans sweet porridge, it's nice to have this dessert eaten with buns or add in durian for those who fancy richer and aromatic taste. Some love to have it cold or with ice cubes, and can even freeze it ... u can make traditional Malaysian ice cream, like those days... I used to make few flavors, green beans, sweet and sour asam boi, sarsi, soursoup, chocolate and lime. It was during my time in primary school, I brought those ice cream to school and sold for 50 cents each. Ermmm.... It was fun to work in the kitchen when you can make pocket money out of it especially for a 10 year old girl... But now, this traditional ice cream is less popular since there are more popular brand in the market. Anyway, it will be nice to have 'Aiskrim Malaysia' once awhile right...??

1 liter water
1 cup evaporated milk

50 grams tapioca pearl drops
Screwpine leaf or pandanus leaf

Nasi Beriyani Aidil Adha

Every holiday is just like Food Fiesta for us at home... Everybody is around everything that we want is on the table... Just name any each of us favorites... Mom shall fulfill everybody's demand and she shall cook all kind of dishes. Nasi Beriyani is one of our favorites, as usual she will cook extra for us to pack and bring back home to Kuala Lumpur. She will pack the rice complete with the side dishes for each of us, she always thought that we might be missing this good Nasi Beriyani but actually it is not about that Nasi Beriyani alone, we are missing her in person. It is great to spend time with mom and dad, and I am glad to have time for another family gathering. Seeing all these beautiful faces making me feel like the time has stopped ever since everybody is right here before my eyes. Ya... that is how I feel when I am with my loved ones, the time just stopped there...
How do we enjoy our holiday??? Ya, eat and eat and eat.... We love to eat...!!!
Nasi Beriyani is a rice dish cooked with ghee, herbs and spices. It aromatic, fragrant and very tasty. Normally serve with few main dishes such as beef, chicken and vegetables. Mom, as usual will cook Beef Rendang, Ayam Masak Merah and Vegetable Dhall Curry. This rice dish is just perfect for any kind of celebrations and wedding reception, it's all time favorite I may say....

Nasi Beriyani :

2 cup Basmati

4 cup water

2 tablespoon ghee

1 onion

3 garlic

1 inch ginger

1 small size carrot
1 teaspoon cumin powder

1 teaspoon anise powder

Bay leaf

  • Heat ghee add in blended ingredients and other spices.
  • Shred carrot add in.
  • Wash rice and add in water.

Nasi Impit and Kuah Lodeh

Special day with special dish, this is my favorite ...lontong or Nasi Impit with Kual Lodeh. Nasi Impit is rice cooked compressed in heat proof small sized plastic pillows, which can be bought easily in supermarket nowadays. Plastic pillows filled with rice cook in boiling water till the pillows become hard filled with cooked compressed rice. Let it cool and cut into cubes ready to serve with gravy and other dish.
During old days, Nasi Impit was cooked traditionally and it was complicated... believe me... Rice was cooked with excess water to make it softer. The cook rice will be placed in a box specially made by wooden planks, place the wooden cover and weigh with traditional pounder made by stone which is heavy enough to compress the rice. When the rice is cooled and hard enough, cut into cubes to serve. It's not easy right? But now practically convenient and time saving ... This is how it got the name 'Impit' ...means pressed, the cooked rice was 'Impit' .... Thanks to food technology research and development. This is why we have to appreciate those people before us, for their knowledge and their effort.. It's because of them for who we are now... Appreciate the history for the benefit of our technology .... This is how Japanese educate their young generations to produce more history lovers and advanced in technology development.
This is how I see them during my stay in Tokyo few years back. In the city itself buildings standing tall and hi-tech but they themselves standing proud with their pride and culture, there is the beauty of history through the years.
But you don't know how much I missed this Nasi Impit and Kuah Lodeh when I was in Tokyo, It was during Aidil Adha and I was so much craving for it....
Kuah Lodeh is a dish made from coconut milk with vegetables and beancurds. Cabbage, carrot and long beans shredded, beancurd and tempe cut into small pieces and deep fried. Mix those ingredients into the yellow coconut gravy. Served well with peanut sauce, a bit spicy but just nice with milky coconut gravy. Lovely !

Masak Lodeh :

Long beans
Tempe (fermented soya beans cake)
250 grams Coconut milk
Turmeric powder
2 Chilies
2 onions
5 garlics
Tamarind peel
Sugar and salt
  • Blend chili, onion and garlic.
  • Coconut milk, turmeric powder and water bring to boil.
  • Add in blended ingredients.
  • Add in tamarind peel, salt and sugar to taste.

American Chocolate Cake

Still on holiday, everybody is here except for two of my brothers back in Kuala Lumpur working. Ya, when I woke up it's a beautiful morning and surely it's a beautiful day... I woke up with a sleepy smiley face being surrounded with beautiful smiles. Shara serenade me with a beautiful song 'Run to you' and keep on repeating the same song over and over again. I was caught between the lyrics, IT'S BEAUTIFUL.... a song by Lady Antebellum. It's true when the time passing by, what we see around is the world turned changing, sometimes life gets harder, people going crazy and problems getting ugly... so what you need is a someone to rely on, I can't be alone, you can't be alone too, nobody can be alone...!!!
Ya, everybody needs somebody to run to ... that's how we play by the rules here, it's written there... So, that tells why I run ... we run and you run too... YEAH ...for now I have all these beautiful faces right before my eyes... the loves of my life... even the world out there is going crazy ... I am still glad that I have another day to be embraced by hugs and kisses.
For this wonderful holiday and for the love of chocolates, I made this delicious American Chocolate Cake. Moist chocolate cake layered with smooth chocolate spread, the chocolate spread was prepared earlier. It was cooked with a double boiler and let cooled for half an hour till the sauce become a little thick and poured cover around the whole cake. Sprinkle some thousands on the cake and it is just beautiful for a beautiful day... May everybody around the world have a beautiful day as well, loving is believing ...

Chocolate spread :
100 grams chocolate compound
100 ml milk
1 teaspoon cornflour
1 teaspoon butter



How to make orange butter cake ....

Ingredients preparation ahead from baking process or 'mise en place'. All ingredients weighted in the right amount and set aside. Sieve flour, baking powder and milk powder. Leavening agent or any kind of ingredients in powder form need to be sieved in order to get a smooth texture of flour and powder.

Place butter and castor sugar in mixing bowl and cream mixture with K beater in a medium speed for about 10 mins. The mixture will turn out white in color due to the mixing of milk and fat comes from butter.

Separate egg yolk from white and set aside separately, use hand gently to hold egg yolk and place in other bowl. Use another mixing bowl for egg white and during separation process avoid water, egg yolk or any alien ingredients from the mixture. Egg white meringue might not be fluffy and airy if mixed with other liquid. Mixing bowl need to be wiped clean before use.

Butter and sugar mixture turn a little pale in color, so add in egg yolk little at a time. This is to avoid cream and yolk to curdle and yolk will be separated from cream if not mixed properly. After a little mix of egg yolk let it beat for awhile till the mixture is well mixed then only continue pouring little more of egg yolk.

In another mixing bowl, place egg white and beat with whisker till fluffy and medium stiff . Beat with medium high speed till meringue become airy.

Add in cream mixture in egg white meringue a little at a time and let it well mixed.

Next, add in sieved flour and mix well too. In baking process, dry ingredients will be mixed with creamed ingredients before adding in liquid, procedure has to be in the proper steps to avoid mixture to curdle.

Add in squeezed orange juice, the taste will differ in the using of additive flavor such as emulco and essence. Natural flavor is more tasty and smells better.

Zest orange peel, avoid the white meat of the orange peel. It's bitter, zest the outer part which is orange in color only. Mix in orange zest into the batter slowly fold with spatula and don't over beat the batter.

Cut parchment paper in appropriate size to the mould of the baking tin. Place parchment paper at the bottom of the tin.

Weight the cake mixture in a good amount for each tin, divide into same quantity for each of the tins. Scoop mixture with spatula into the tins not more than 3 quarter metric of the tin to avoid mixture from over spill.

For loaf size butter cake, bake in 180 C for 30 mins and rotate the tins after 1st half to allow cake to bake evenly. Cake will turn less soggy after 1st half of baking, rotate the tins and bake till cake is well cooked. Use metal tester or wooden stick to check, no more batter or uncooked mixture sticked to the tester indicates that the cake is done.

Wow, the questions are incredibly difficult ...I wonder how hard she has been focusing on the studies, anyway I know that she is giving her best shot and I always be by her side to give full support no matter what.
The weather is quite hot, rained late in the evening but the temperature ain't cool. I can't avoid headache because of the heat, I need to get some cold drink to quench the thirst.

Filipino Salt Bread

Pan De Sal came from Spanish origin, it's rounded lean bread made of basic ingredients flour, fat, water, eggs, yeast, salt and sugar ...A very popular bakery product in Philippines, so simple but so tasty ...My last visit in Manila, every morning I shall go to market to buy some groceries for our lunch and dinner. It was such a great experience when you need to ride few transportation to get to your destination where actually just about 5 km away ...from home we walked, during that particular month the weather was quite beautiful ...almost the end of December, it was only about 22C and cloudy ....hardly sweat cause it pretty cool to walk in this perfect weather, so walking for 10-15 mins wasn't that bad for a quick work out every morning. Then we ride on motor bike, the funny thing was ...there were 3 of us ... me, Allan and the rider himself ...COOL hah ??? But that is the norm in Manila, after the ride we hop-in jeepney ...Took about 7 mins to reach the market. It was such a great memories riding in the colourful jeepneys full with passengers along the busiest road in Manila, more fun when you have to jump from one ride to another. While in the market, you can see such beautiful fresh colourful vegetables and fruits ...Green spinach, fragrant melon and fresh milk fish ...wasn't that a perfect menu for the lunch?? Indeed ...At the end of other corner, I saw people in a long queue right in front of a small bakery shop ...It was a small shop with 1 double tier gas oven and 2 working tables, the only things for sale were pandesal but believe me they have more customers than Roti Boy in KLCC ...I tried the bread myself, curious with how does it taste ...Is it that tasty as it's look ...And guess what??? It was so good, and sure you want to go for more. Every morning, as I passed by and like the norm ...people queue in front of the small bakery shop just to buy their breakfast, everyday with regular customers... This lean dough rolled into long log called baston and cut into small pieces, rolled into bread crumbs before going into oven. The bread crumbs gives a unique taste especially when serve warm with scramble eggs and cheese, don't forget black coffee with milk ...a perfect day start with a perfect breakfast .... I tried myself here at home, wasn't that bad but still can't get the right texture ...maybe will be almost perfect after several attempts, practice make perfect I believe ...There's always next time and I shall make it better ...BAKE WITH LOVE



Chocolate Chip Cookies

MOM ...your choco chips will always be the best...!!! Remember Famous Amos??? This is the best chocolate chips cookies came straight off mom's oven right here in Jitra ...Crispy, chocolaty chips with almond nibs ....A double chocolate treat for this Raya celebration ...Mom used to bake two types of Chocolate Chips Cookies, one is chocolate version and another one is plain with vanilla flavoring. But I have made some modification by adding extra ingredients and milk powder as flavoring ....Splendid ....Buttermilk Chocolate Chips Cookies.
RM 35 for 600 grams of cookies ...isn't it value to buy??? Wait till you take the first bite, you will always ask for more ....Sweet tooth people out there, here Sugarspice will come out with Chocochips Cookies soon ...Wait for the appearance ya...


2010 Raya Again In Memory

Everything feels so right when you are surrounded by loved ones ...Like nothing from outside the circle can disturb you, because you have everything that you want and love right before your eyes, isn't that wonderful? As for me, to be home with my Donut and Jojo tremendously enjoying ...I had a great time this Raya with a new comer in our family, It's Sahmi my nephew ...This sleepyhead guy is a bit moody ....Like father like son :p I wonder if this could be inherited, moody could be contagious too ...your stress might as well contribute to some one else's stress ...agree?? Well, I tell you ...the right way to reduce your stress level is by enjoying your meal ...ya 'There is no love sincerer than the love of food' -George Bernard Shaw ...An effective stress reliever , it worked on me when I was in college years back ...After class I bought loads of food, I enjoyed my studies while I have something in my mouth munching ...Especially chocolate, I just disagree when people claimed that chocolate is fattening ...If you have it in the right amount and at the right time shall not give any problem at all. So people, EAT SMART ... Food ... Just name it ...Everyone's favourite dishes were on the table, mom had prepared Nasi Briyani, Laksa, Nasi Impit, Soto and cakes ...How can I stop myself from eating? It was a non-stop eating marathon with everybody took their turns to eat ...That's what we called our love for food, does it means we live to eat??? Ermmm ... Partly the saying is right, I might say ...'SELAMAT HARI RAYA EVERYBODY from Jitra with love' ...Insyaallah we will meet Ramadhan again next year ....As for today, Alhamdulillah for this wonderful moment with love is all around


Moist Chocolate Cake

It's Hari Raya again ...10th Sept 2010, I wonder why am I so excited to meet Hari Raya again after last year. But I guess this year is better than last year and few years back, and this year is so meaningful to me as I am being a free person ...Last 31th August was the 53rd anniversary of Malaysia's independence, it's my independence day as well... i am free again, can feel my feet back on the ground...!!!! YAY... It shows how excited am I this 2010 raya... as excited as I was 8 or 9 years old??!!! I haven't gone back to hometown since last May, really missing everybody ...spending 6 to 7 hours drive wasn't a problem to me, the happiness is in the air... I can't wait to be home again...
Cakes and cookies will always be a popular demand during Raya celebrations, we used to bake using an old fashioned oven which uses gas and I can assure you it was not an easy task ...i had the chance to see how my mom used the 14 inch tv sized oven ....It took hours to baked only few jars of cookies ...Can we imagine how patience our moms were??? Compare to us now???!!! I wonder.... :p Anyway ...It was Shara who baked cakes and mom was in charged in baking cookies with the assistance of Mr Jojo and Ms Donut. I baked back in Kuala Lumpur and I have made some side income with cookies business besides working everyday ...but very unfortunately all cookies were sold out and nothing left for me ...But it's OK, because i missed mom's ...YEAH....
Shara made Moist Chocolate Cake, our all time favourite ...Fluffy moist chocolaty cake with semi sweet chocolate fudge. Back in KL, this type of chocolate cake is sold RM55 per kilo ...It ain't cheap especially home made, even what we can get from the bakery shop priced around RM50-RM60 per kilo ....nowadays people don't mind paying as long as it is worth buying ...Quality over quantity....Some like fudge but some like ganache as the topping, I like both because they are both chocolate and it is just irresistible right? Fudge is more suitable for decoration purpose but ganache look so delicious, chocolate sauce on cake is just so tempting ....YUMMYY
Selamat Hari Raya for all Muslim around the world and a very happy holiday everybody ....May we enjoy the joy of sharing and forgiving .... from Jitra with love and lots of love

Chocolate Ganache :

1000 ml cream
750 grams dark chocolate compound
750 grams milk chocolate compound
200 grams glucose




I have been keeping this photo for quite sometimes but haven't written anything about it in my blog, hoping that I will have a nice relaxing time for me to unwind with my writing while listening to an 80's number, it's 'I NEVER LET YOU GO'. Nice, just what I need ...At last, after so long... I finally have the time this weekend. Yea... why not? since I don't really have to cook because it's been done by mom... even Donut and Jojo are busy with their studies and computer games... I am really enjoying my weekend back in hometown with everybody around, mom and abah, all brothers and sisters, kidos... FOOD... ALOT... FOOD
The photo was taken about 2 months ago but I still can remember how good and tasty it was... Ya, it's Caldareta... Tender beef with capsicum, carrot and potato. A more tomato version of Daging Masak Kicap (Beef in Dark Soya Sauce). Some may add in shredded cheese and liver spread, but for this attempt it just a simple Caldareta ...
Don't forget Calamansi ya... it's essential ingredient in Philippines dish, or you may substitute it with lemon too. Instead of using tomato sauce it's preferable to use tomato puree for it's richer taste. And vegetable should be fried for a while just to preserve the sweetness in the vegetable, instead of cooking with water and lost the crispiness and taste. Slice some onions into rings and saute, make sure that the beef is tender after bring to boil in the sauce.. Remove beef from sauce and saute on frying pan till slightly dry, add in the remaining sauce and vegetable... Enjoy with rice or plain loaf and it is more to enjoy...
MMMMmmm... I just enjoy eating and I enjoy watching people eating... HAPPY WEEKEND FOOD LOVERS...

p/s Saute chopped garlic and onion before add in beef, soya sauce, tomato puree and calamansi.

I guess it just another day of my LAZY DAYS... It's ok, I had a very good lunch today with a complete meal of vege and chicken.

It's Sera's birthday

18 th June... It's sera's birthday, I have not gotten any present for her. Since I started working in Bijoux, my life is only either home or kitchen. I don't even have the time to update my blog..!!! That explained .... No time for leisure nor for Sera, and she is getting mad when every time I had to turn down on our dates... I know... She is just missing me... Ya... That's it... Anyway, our every year tradition... I will bake a birthday cake, and this is it... a butter chocolate cake with chocolate frosting comes together with 4 cupcakes sprinkled with silver balls.

Bitter sweet chocolate frosting good with chocolate cake, I prefer butter chocolate cake compare to sponge cake. It gives richer and more chocolaty taste, and the butter smells so wonderful and you just can't resist it... YUMMMY.... It's so easy just mix butter, icing sugar and coco powder...

Sera loves classic but simple... It just white frosting piped on the coated cake, classic design with leaves... A simple black and white token of our friendship over 20 years... BLACK N WHITE OF OUR FRIENDSHIP... I love you babe... Happy Birthday Sweet Heart...




Beef Curry

Nasi Biryani with Beef Curry and Acar for Friday's lunch

I haven't been cooking for the past 1 week, since we were too busy with catering jobs. I spent most of the time at Sera's, and everyday with out fail... Masak Lemak Cili Padi is compulsory. So my diet at Sera's can say was too much...!! I had gained weight 1 kg in 1 week....!! Coconut milk isn't just to add flavor but also to add fat...!! But I tried to control my eating anyway, not too much like before. I was really in love with my eating habit, I eat 5 times a day with a large portion for every meal. Be living with cooks, you tend to eat more than you should... Believe me.. I have experienced it...! Everyday is a lovely day, when the food is so good and at the end of the day, you will be heavier than normal with out you realizing it.... :)
So, enough of Masak Lemak Cili Padi because now I am craving for something which is rich with herbs and spices. Curry and Nasi Biryani...! That would be perfect for my Friday this week, Since last two days I went to a Pakistani's restaurant and had a mutton curry. The curry taste a bit different than curries that we can get in mamak's restaurant. It was so delicious, for that I have changed a few ingredients in my cooking to suits my eating mood today... And WALLLAAA....!!
The taste isn't bad at all... I like to go for some changes once a while... It challenges your taste buds!
Not forgetting, I made Acar which is based on Pakistani's recipe... Our Malay Acar is sweet and sour with a tropical touch of pineapple but my menu today uses a lot of spices. My acar is a mix of vegetables and black pepper.... Everything is just about spices...!!
YAY...!! Spices make you HOT...!!! Inside and Outside...!!!
