I'm pressed for time, so this post is going to be a 'rojak' of some sort!
We went back to Ayer Baloi last weekend, after the photography workshop and the little ones' Lorna's classes. Got in Ayer Baloi at around 10 pm, unpacked and made a batch of macarons! From the last bake I still have not got it right with the oven there! Slept at 1...and the next day I baked some more!
While in Ayer Baloi, there is no need to cook, the food from the warungs are so good and reasonably priced! But I made Sambal Bilis with Belimbing Buloh on Monday as requested by MIL. ...and while I was hovering in this rm2 shop in pekan Ayer Baloi, I saw this mold to make Roti Jala!
I searched for Mat Gebu's recipe, and made Roti Jala on Tuesday for breakfast. We left for KL at noon!
1 cup APF
3/4 cups water
1/2 cup fresh milk, I used evaporated milk, didn't have any fresh milk at that time
2-3 drops yellow colouring
3 tbsp melted butter or olive oil, I used butter
pinch of salt
Using a blender I blitz all the ingredients together, and started my kirai mengirai!
Tqs Mat Gebu for this recipe. Now I can say that I like Roti Jala, as so far I have never been satisfied with those that I bought. And I must add that making this kueh tradisional is not easy. I had to tweak the consistency of the batter by adding a bit more water...and at the end of the whole session, my kitchen tops were full of those dots from the batter! Haha, but it was well worth making especially when having them with Chicken Curry!
...and the other activities....
Life's a beach in Ayer Baloi!...from Donna Hay's latest issue!

Yusof's favourite...Sambal Kicap! Pound using a mortar and pestle 2 clove garlic, 5 birds eye cillies, 1 tsp salt, 2 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp fried onions (if available), squeeze some lemon or lime and mix with some soya sauce! I used Habhal's Sweet Soya Sauce! We had this with Cencaru Bakar!
We munched Mee Siput with Sos Cili...a lot!
...so, that's it and I delivered this macarons this morning for AHA and Syed! Passion Fruit, Coffee, Blackcurrent, Apple Cinnamon and Milo Cheese filling!
Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be busy baking! :p
