So much of cooking activities for me this month; from dishes to cakes :) Cooking and baking? Yeah, that's my life now. Ok, pixies time!
Note: There'll be lotsa foodie pixies
a) Shui Jiao with chicken broth soup
I was browsing CathJ website and saw her wonton dumplings (yummy), so brought hubby to mini market at Bornion to buy the ingredients
Verdict: It supposed to be wonton but the skin dumplings; thick and wide, so ended up cooking Shui Jiao. I am not satisfied with the filling, I should use less corn flour next time
b) Nasi Briyani with side dishes; Deep Fry Spicy Chicken Wings and Vege
Nope, I didn't do the Briyani from the scratch (hehehe), I used Briyani Paste (I forgot the brand) at Sunny Supermarket
Verdict: Next time, I will put raisins and bunga cengkih for more aroma!
c) Citrus Ice Cream
I modified Nigella's recipe actually and much more simplified. Love the citrus smell and taste!
Verdict: My fresh squeezed orange was sweet a bit and I forgot to taste it before mixing into the cream. So, the ice cream a bit sweet and less sour. The lime didn't work since I only put 3 pieces
d) Chicken Lihing Soup
Love this and gonna cook again!
e) Sweet Egg Tarts
First time baking using oven. I have difficulties when using the oven. Bah, all this time I'm baking cake in steaming process
Verdict: With 350gm of flour, I can bake 5 dozen of tarts. But, the first 3 batches were over cooked and even not cooked. Am not sure how these thing can happen because I followed the instructions on the book! Again, I remember CathJ baking tart process and baked it accordingly. Viola! Alas! Thanks Cath :)
f) Nasi Tomat with side dish; Ayam Kurma
Yes, the tomatoes rice I cooked it from the scratch and the dish I used Adabi Kurma paste
g) Orange Madeira Cake
It's just an ordinary cake with a taste of orange juice and zest!
Verdict: I love the cake texture! And the baking process is easy to follow and understand :)
I received calls from my families and friends ordering Fruit Cakes for Christmas. Wow, it is 1 month and 4 days before the joyous celebration. We will come out with special ads for this
Monday cheers peeps!
