Eid Mubarak

Dear All,

I would like to wish you all a Blessed Eid Mubarak, Maaf Zahir and Batin.

Beef Rendang and Sweet n Sour

I am being fair so I tried both recipes 1 from my mom and the other from my MIL.

Sweet and Sour (which I accidentally put way too much chili that makes it look like sambal instead but taste sweet and sour still.

Dried Chili
*Blended everything
Tomato sauce
Corn flour

Saute the blended stuff
Season with Salt and Sugar
Thicken it with corn flour.
ps: I used fried nugget with the sweet n sour sauce ... meat option is all up to u, fish oso can/

Rendang (MIL's recipe)

20 chili padi
1 large onion
1/2 thumb of ginger
6 cloves of garlic
blend all the ingredients above

2 scoops of blended chili
1kg of beef (daging goreng)
2/3 of coconut milk (small)
2 cups of water
2 tsp salt
2 stix of lemongrass (bashed)
2 to 3pcs of lime leaves
1 tbsp sugar

Heat the oil in a stew pot, add the blended paste and stir-fry them until aromatic.
Add the beef and the pounded lemongrass and stir for 1 minute.
Add the coconut milk, water and simmer on medium heat, stirring frequently until the meat is almost cooked.
Add the lime leaves and  sugar, stirring to blend well with the meat.
Lower the heat to low, cover the lid, and simmer for 1 – 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is really tender and the gravy has dried up.
Add salt to taste. If not sweet enough, add more sugar to taste.

Baking Mayhem Part IV

Almost Famous Cookies taken from Kak Rima. Awesome recipe I loike.

250g salted butter,softened
200g light brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt (i didnt add)
1/2 tsp coffee oil
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup oats,processed to bits in a chopper (i used ground cornflakes)
1/4 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup of your favourite nuts,chopped finely (optional)(i used chopped walnut... toasted)
1 pack of Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet chocolate chips
300g self-raising flour (i used plain flour with 1/2tsp of baking powder)
This is the most important step,at least 2 hours before,or the night before,beat the egg with the vanilla and the coffee oil to infuse or you can do this the night before,refrigerate it then bring it to room temperature before baking.
Preheat oven to 160C.
To the softened butter,beat in the sugar and the salt to combine. Beat in the egg and stir in the processed oats,ground almonds,optional chopped nuts and the chocolate chunks. Sift the flour and fold it in,this dough will not be too stiff but not too wet either.
For small cookies,place half-tsp of the dough,spaced slightly apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 9 to 10 minutes.
For large cookies, place rounded tbsp of the dough spaced apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 22 minutes.
Cool completely and let it sit overnight in an airtight container,this is for the flavour and fragrance to develop further.
