1 lemongrass

175 milliliter (5.9 fl. oz.) medium coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
Filling:
250 grams (8.8 oz) peeled shrimps (I used pink shrimps), chopped
100 grams (3.5 oz) fresh or frozen grated coconut
100 milliliter (3.4 fl oz) water
4 kaffir lime leaves, discard the midrib and chop
1 turmeric leaf, discard the midrib and chop
Spices to be pounded or ground:
5 shallots
2 cloves garlic
5 long red cayenne pepper
2-centimeter (0.8-inch) long turmeric, peeled (or 3/4 teaspoon turmeric powder)
3-centimeter (1.2-inches) long ginger, peeled (or 1 teaspoon ginger powder)
5-centimeter (2 inches) long galangal, peeled (or 2 teaspoons galangal powder)
1 tablespoon ground lemongrass
Directions:
Filling:
Toast grated coconut until dry and pound until smooth. Grind or pound all spices for fillings. In a pan, combine ground spices, pounded toasted coconut and water. Bring to a boil and stir constantly until the water absorbs. Add chopped kaffir lime leaves and turmeric leaf. Season with salt. Stir well and remove from the heat. Let it cool down.
Shrimp Rolls:
1. Steam sticky rice for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, bring coconut milk, salt, pandan leaf and lemongrass to a boil. Let the mixture reduce to 125 milliliter. Then, combine a steamed sticky rice. Cook at a low heat and keep string until the coconut milk mixture is absorbed. Re-steam the coconut sticky rice mixture for another 15 minutes.
2. Level about 3-5 tablespoons steamed coconut sticky rice on a 15-centimeter sheet of banana leaf. Place on 1 tablespoon filling on the center. Roll it up tightly with a diameter of 2-centimeter. Wrap and fasten both ends of banana leaf with a wooden toothpick. Repeat this step until all ingredients are used up.
3. Barbeque or roast the rolls on a charcoal grill until the leaves turn darker on some places. In this case, I used a broil method in the oven.

Buttermilk doughnuts

Buttermilk doughnuts

Total time: 1 hour

Servings: Makes about 1 1/2 dozen donuts


Ingredients:

4 1/4 cups (18 ounces) flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon salt

Pinch grated nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2 eggs

1 egg yolk

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup buttermilk

3 tablespoons butter, melted






1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, grated nutmeg and cinnamon.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or in a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat together the eggs and egg yolk with the sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes.

3. In a large measuring cup, stir together the buttermilk and butter.

4. Alternately beat the dry ingredients and buttermilk mixture into the egg mixture, one-third at a time, until all of the ingredients are combined and a dough is formed. It will be soft and sticky.

5. With floured hands, remove the dough to a floured board and gently roll out until the dough is one-half inch thick. Using a doughnut cutter, or 2 biscuit cutters (a larger one measuring 3 to 3 1/2 inches in diameter, and a smaller one measuring about 1 inch in diameter), cut the dough into doughnuts, spacing the doughnuts as close as possible. Collect the scraps and roll out to form another batch of doughnuts (note that this batch may be a little tougher than the first as the dough has been worked).

6. Meanwhile, fill a deep fryer with oil, or a large pot to a depth of at least 3 inches, with oil, and heat to a temperature of 350 degrees.

7. Gently place the doughnuts in the oil, being careful not to crowd. Fry the doughnuts on each side until puffed and golden, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side.

8. Drain the donuts on a rack and cool slightly, then frost and decorate as desired.

Each doughnut: 291 calories; 4 grams protein; 31 grams carbohydrates; 1 gram fiber; 17 grams fat; 3 grams saturated fat; 41 mg. cholesterol; 9 grams sugar; 237 mg. sodium.

Bubur Ayam Abang Pengkolan

IDFB Challenge #14   kali ini bertema Beras.


Sudah beberapa kali saya berminat untuk ikutan challenge di IDFB ini, tapi selalu saja terlewatkan oleh kesibukan saya sebagai ibu dengan dua bocah yang sedang aktif beraktifitas. Selalu terlewat oleh deadline. Inipun sepertinya hari terakhir untuk setor. mudah2an masih bisa ikutan. 
Berhubung semuanya tentang beras, saya jadi ingat akan eksperiment saya membuat bubur ayam. Nasib hidup di luar negri yang paling nyebelin adalah ketika kita pengen makan makanan kesukaan kita tapi tidak bisa di dapat dgn cara yg mudah. Satu2nya cara adalah kita harus membuat sendiri ( yg biasanya, kalo di Jakarta, kalau mau makanan apa saja, cukup dengan sms, keinginan kita bisa datang, diantar pula! what a spoil life ). Anyway, saya selalu suka makanan yang satu ini. Semasa remaja dan ketika saya masih tinggal di Jakarta, setiap pagi sarapan saya  selalu makanan yang satu ini. BUBUR AYAM ABANG PENGKOLAN. Jangan tanya kenapa namanya seperti itu. Mungkin karena si abang ini selalu mangkal di pojok  gang pengkolan yg sering di lalui banyak orang. Bubur ayam ini  banyak di isi  dgn berbagai macam tambahan. Ada sate usus, sate telur puyuh dan sate rempela. Pokoknya setiap pagi saya selalu menantikan  si mbok kembali dari membeli bubur ayam ini untuk sarapanku sebelum berangkat sekolah. Berdasarkan memory akan nikmatnya bubur ini, saya mencoba untuk membuatnya sendiri. Setelah beberapa kali trial n eror membuatnya, akhirnya saya menemukan rasa yang tepat.

Too bad, I wish they have it ( that would make my hubby so happy ). So, I forget about this dish long time a go, until 2 days ago, I found a blog from one of my food blogging friend.

(http://www.sunshineandsmile.com/2011/05/16/butter-chickenmurgh-makhani/). Thank you so much Kankana :)

 

 

 


 Preparation Makhani Masala ( mean thick tomatoes based sauce )

Ingredients : (yields 1+1/2 cup)

  • 3 cups tomato puree
  • 1 tbs ginger, finely grated
  • 1 tbs garlic, finely grated

Directions :

In a saucepan, heat some oil and add ginger, garlic, cinnamon and cardamom. Let it sizzle for a few minutes.
Next, add tomato puree, salt, cinnamon powder, kasuri methi, chilly powder and mix them properly.
Add 1 cup hot water.
Bring the heat down to medium, cover the saucepan and let it cook for about 15 mins.
When you see the oil separating from the side and the sauce looks thick dark red in color, turn off the gas. The makhani masala is ready.


Now we do the Chicken 

Ingredients :


  • 1 lb chicken (you can use bone as well boneless pieces but they should be skinless)( I use 2 pcs fillet  and 4  pcs of chicken breast  )
  • 1 tbs plain yogurt

  • 1/2 tbs garlic, finely grated ( it's about 3 clove of fresh garlic )
  • 1/2 tbs ginger, finely grated( it's about 3 cm of fresh gingger )

  • 5 to 7 almonds, roasted and then grated to a fine paste
  • 1 tbs butter

  • 1/2 cup cilantro for garnish, finely chopped( cilantro = coriander leaves )
  • salt
  • oil

- Directions :
In a bowl, marinate the chicken with yogurt, garlic, ginger, turmeric powder, lemon juice, chilly powder and salt. You need to let it marinate for at-least 4 hours (marinating overnight works really well).
In a pan, heat 2 tbs oil and fry the chicken pieces for about 3 minutes on each side. Don’t overcrowd the pan.
Once done, take them out and let them rest.
In the same pan, add the MAKHANI MASALA /sauce that you made before and reduce the heat.
Add the almond paste, salt and cover the pan. Let it simmer for about 15 minutes.
Next, add the chicken pieces and stir them properly to make sure it’s evenly mixed with the sauce. If the sauce get’s too thick, add 1/2 cup hot water.
Cover and cook for another 8 minutes.
Add garam masala powder, cream and mix everything properly. Check for salt and add if required.

Ingredients :

2 1/4 Cups all Purpose Flour 
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup Softened butter/ margarine ( I use butter, 225 gr )

1 cup Chopped nuts ( optional )

How to make it :

Preheat the oven to 375F ( 190° )

Softener the butter in microwave (approx 1 minute )
Combine brown sugar, softener butter/margarine and vanilla and beat until creamy.
Add eggs and beat.
Add dry ingredients and mix well.
Stir in chocolate chips and chopped nuts. 
Drop mixture by rounded teaspoonfull onto non greased cookies sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes

Recipe yields approximately  2 dozen cookies  

my note ***         
put in the container, cover it and Store in the refrigerator for 15 - 20 minute before you scoop it and put it in the oven fr 10 minutes

** usually I can store it in the fridge for 1 weeks ( I bake it when ever I want to eat ) and it's taste much much better when you eat while still hot or fresh out from the oven .
Bon appetite !!!!
