Hiatus from Food Blogging ...

*Photos has been deleted

It's been awhile since I update my blog ... been busy I guess or probably just lazy ... hee hee ...

We fasted on Sat (on the day of Arafah).  If mom didn't tell me I wouldn't know hahaha .... so lucky me I still have mom to constantly reminding me =D Since Sat is a Stay-at-Home day, I decided to make myself useful around the house.  I have been cleaning, scrubbing, polishing things around the house.  There's a chance I have OCD too cos I am not satisfied with just a 1 time wipe.  I would sweep, wipe, mop and I still find it not clean ... maybe its just me lah.

After all the cleaning ... I decided to plan for break fast menu ... there about 1/2kg of minced meat and 1/2kg of prawns.  So menu was Meatball masak kicap and 'Togel/Naked' Cereal  Prawn (why naked? ... cos I had to peel the shell for ... *cough*hub*cough*by*).  I baked brownie for my mom.

Meatballs Kicap 
(I'm just playing around with the ingredients so its all up to you what you want to add in ok)

minced meat
salt pepper
minced garlic and ginger
chopped onion
chopped coriander
corn flour

Methods: Mix everything together and make into small balls (all up to you how big or small you want it).  After shaping the meatballs, add about 2 tbsp of oil to pan fry the meatballs.  The choice is yours, you can cook it well or half cook it and take it out drained the excess oil on kitchen paper.

Kicap (Soy Sauce) Gravy
onion cut into rings
star anise
tomato sauce
black pepper

chili padi
fried potatoes

Methods: Saute the onions and the booby traps (star anise, cinnamon & cardamon) add in kicap  and water depends on how much you want.  Add in the meatballs. Mix well and let it boil.  Once its boiling seasoned the gravy with salt, pepper and black pepper and last add in maybe 2 or 3 tbsp of tomato sauce to slightly thicken the gravy.  Let it simmer for 5 to 10mins and off the heat.

Cereal Prawn recipe.  The only different is that this time round I peel off the shell.

Here come Sunday ... Eid Adha.

We went to Sultan mosque for prayers.  After that went back to ibu house for breakfast.  Not your ordinary Raya feast hahah ... we did not cook any lontong or rendang this year.  We had shepherd's pie and my brownie.  Simple.  After that nap time.  while the rest were napping, I played with the new member of the family ... this hamster is so lazy ... sleep and sleep only just like the owner.

and thats how we celebrate Hari Raya Haji ... heeh
