This morning I decided to cook Masak Lemak Jaundice (Maizura Life Bloom's and moi's term) Daging Salai. Maizure who is orang Negeri is supposed to do a demo on how to prepare this dish sometime this month...well, can't wait until then, so here's the recipe....very easy and it goes very well with Jantung Pisang Rebus, Sambal Belacan and Tempeh Goreng with Sambal Kicap...
Masak Lemak Jaundice Daging Salai...Yani's style...Zaitgha and Life Bloom tolong betulkan!
500 gm daging salai...I got it from my local fresh beef supplier at my weekly pasar tani
2 in fresh turmeric
5-10 cili padi kampung (depending on how hot you want it to be)
cream of coconut...santan kelapa-lah tu...from 2 coconuts...no Yani was not counting calories this morning!
salt to taste
Tumbuk the fresh turmeric and cili until lumat and fine. Add the paste to sliced daging salai, add the coconut milk...simmer over low fire, add salt to taste.
I used to make masak lemak and have onions, bawangputih, serai and daun kunyit in it, but I feel the above recipe is the best...simple and very sedapppp!
Yesterday, on the way home from work, I stopped by Bagus, my baking supply shop to get some stuff to bake this weekend....and they had macadamias...I terus teghingat the choc brownie recipe that Anedra tried over the weekend and was raving about it!
So, apa lagi, after I settled the kids and hubby, had dinner and solat, I turned myself into a baker by night...and started preparing the ingredients to make the brownie. The recipe is from Australian Women's Weekly March 2009 issue, which copyrights belongs solely to them....
Over The Top Chocolate And Macadamia Brownies.....very easy to prepare!
275 g dark chocolate, chopped finely
150g butter, chopped
2/3 cup (150g) caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup (150g) plain flour
1/2 cup (75g) self-raising flour
2/3 (90g) unsalted macadamias, lightly roasted, chopped coarsely
100 g milk chocolate, chopped coarsely
100 g dark chocolate, extra, chopped coarsely
icing sugar, to dust
1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celcius. Grease and line the base of a 20 cm x 5 cm square pan with parchment paper ( I used baking spray)
2.Combine chocolate and butter in a medium pan, stir over low heat until smooth. Remove from heat, let cool for a while.
3.Stir in sugar, then eggs and mix well. Fold in the combined sifted flours, then macadamias, milk chocolate and the extra dark chocolate.
4.Spread mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for about 35 minutes or until moist crumbs cling to a skewer inserted in the centre. Cool in pan. (I let mine a bit gooey, but this morning it was cooked but a bit moist, the kids didn't complain, and I brought mine for me to enjoy during lunch, kejap lagi....)
5. To serve, cut into small pieces and dust with icing sugar.(I omitted this, the kids would be hyper enough with the brownies, kalau tambah icing sugar...jadi circus rumah I, ha ha!)
I have a few other brownies' recipe that I want to try later, but this one is really muah, and not over the top, but you have to try it to rasa the divinely delicious taste...thanks Anedra for introducing this recipe.....next, I will attempt the Mocha Cupcakes which has almond meal in it and will post the recipe for you to terliurq, ha ha...have a brilliant day ahead....I will, because I have to mengadap the CEO in the afternoon!! Apalah yang dia nak!!??
