Lavish Lasagna

Hola!



For this lasagna, the same recipe for baked macaroni was applied. But the white sauce should be prepared half more than for the latter; since it need to be spread at every layer. The lasagna sheets do not necessarily be boiled first. It still ok if you opt for it or just cook them until half boiled, but I directly arranged them right out from the box! :D

Pengat Pisang

Hello!

This is my all time favorite dish; but here without the smell of pandan. Hehehe. But that does not matter cause it's the taste does matter!



On a different note, I would like to share this short vid on Edin's Malaysian Night that I attended last night. That was one of the finishing performances. I was busily eating to record the earlier performances. Heh. If I'm not mistaken two of those guys were Chinese, and the left two were Malay and Indian respectively. All ladies were Chinese. Enjoy!

video

p/s: memang layan makan pengat sambil tengok vid :D

Meet Beef Stew, not from Trengganu!

Hello!

this was my dinner just now. recipe was altered from here [hah, pilih-pilih!]. at first it was eaten with white rice however it was imperfectly matched [macam makan rendang dengan spaghetti la..]. then only i made the mashed potatoes. as it is always stew's great achievement to meet its end on a pile of nicely mashed potatoes! :)


mashed potatoes with beef stew on top

p/s: secret recipe's stew still won though ;p

Made this dish to celebrate my friend's birthday. It was as same as preparing the bolognese sauce. Just wanted to share the steps of preparing the white sauce.

Ingredients:
- 1/4 of butter cube
- 1/2 cup of flour
- 2 cups of milk
- salt to taste
- black pepper to season
- parmesan cheese as you desire

Method:
- melt the butter (medium heat)
- pour in flour gradually and keep stirring
- pour in milk, salt and black pepper - continue stirring
- add some milk if the sauce is very thick
- add the cheese - stir well

Layering of the macaroni:
- pour the boiled macaroni
- pour and mix bolognese sauce with the macaroni
- cover the surface by pouring the white sauce
- sprinkle over grated parmesan cheese on top

Bake at 190C for 40-45 minutes (until the cheese turns brown)

Yummy giler weyh!

Roti [tanpa]Jala

Hello world!

recently made this roti [tanpa]jala for a small gatherings here by combining mak's recipe that i could remember of and mesra.net. he2. since the utensil to make the 'jala' is crucially unobtainable globally, here's how the uk edition of it turned out to be. the taste - memang A lah!! and very much similar to what i remember mak's. huhu. mak i miss u!!! :'(

ingredients:
- 3 cups of flour
- 1.5 cups of fresh milk
- 1 cups of water
- 2 eggs
- salt to taste
- tumeric powder for colour
method:
- pour all ingredients into a bowl
- mixed all to form a batter (i blended them all, yes blended using hand blender ;p)
- pour the batter onto the frying pan (spread them thinly around the pan)
- repeat till fade.. (the batter fade from the mixing bowl)
- roll them all one by one to the desired size


the beef curry was made the day before for my consecutive 3 days meals actually ;p
somehow i felt to share it for the gatherings instead. however, i don't intend to talk about the recipe in this post. but certainly it was deliciously matched with the roti [tanpa]jala that i made.


presenting...

p/s: sa, where's newest post? :)
