d making of TEMPOYAK / FERMENTED DURIAN

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُه
&
Good Day
from durian
Bercakap mengenai durian ni.. masing-masing mempunyai pendapat ataupun pandangan tersendiri mengenai raja buah ni..
shud i say, ..d different kind of love & hate towards d DURIAN
anyway, perhaps..
ITS (only) A THIN LINE BETWEEN LOVE & HATE.. (i believe)
hahaha
Some are crazy about it, some just cant stand d smell.. (poor u..)
BUT I m a huge fan of durian and of course d tempoyak..
to tempoyak
d authentic durian spread
 Tempoyak is one-of-a-kind that cannot be compared to anything else in this world.
It is a thick-lumpy-yellow-cream just like d mayonnaise.. 
 It's almost indescribable.
Let the photos do d talking ..
the step-by-step of d making of d TEMPOYAK or FERMENTED DURIAN
How To Make Tempoyak??
To make tempoyak is pretty simple.
1. Separate seed from the flesh.
2. Mix well the durian flesh with salt, sugar & birds eye chilli.
- 1 cup of durian flesh to 1 tsp of salt.
 Too little of salt will cause your tempoyak to become sour. Put too much, and of course your tempoyak will become too salty.
3. Keep the mixture in an airtight container, and it is ready for consumption minimum 2 days thereafter. 
Tempoyak well preversed can last for months, provided u keep it refrigerated. It is a traditional condiment, used as an additional flavor in Malaysian cooking.
 It is created as a one way to utilize d overripe or excess durian so that there will be no wastage.
So, once u have got your tempoyak ready..
 u can have it raw with a little bit of chillies 
OR 
u may add d tempoyak to your cook.
One of my recipe with tempoyak is HERE
Do not forget to check-out d recipe ya..
or u may check with mr Google on any other Tempoyak Dish..

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُه
&
Good Day
Today, 12 September 2013 is d last day of PMR exam. They will be having Science, English & Aptitude Test paper today. 
After this, the Year 6 students will be temporarily MERDEKA from all d 5A's burden..
InshaAllah, may success be in your hands, after all d effort thrown.
Forget about d PMR..
As promised.. tadaaaaaaa....
KuEh CaRa BeRLAuK
From d KuEh CaRa MaNiS  to KuEh CaRa BeRLaUk is just like having main dish & dessert @ one short.. 
From mouth watering sweetness to d hot & spicy savory delicacy.. 
I shud say that u won't regret of having both.. 
Just like killing 2 birds with one stone .. Hahaha
Basically, ingredients and method for 
KuEh CaRa BeRLaUk remain the same.. 
Just change the colour of batter from green to yellow.. 
Substitute d pandanus green colour with turmeric powder or yellow coloring only.
I will definitely recommend d use of turmeric powder for d natural flavouring and aroma. 
And finally change the filling from  d sweet sugar to d savory 'lauk' i.e. d fried minced meat. 
If u make d kueh yourself, definitely u can put extra lauk.. 
Don't have 2 b 2 stingy.. too little 2 enjoy the kueh.
OK.. lets look @ d recipe..
The batter will be d same as d KuEh CaRa MaNiS. Kindly refer to my earlier post HERE & as for easy reference, let me just copy & paste d recipe, as follows : 
D Batter
Ingredients:
4 cups plain flour
2 boxes Coconut Milk (ogyep likes to use d MS brand)
3 eggs
2 cups water (blend together with d pandanus leaves)
5-6 pandanus leaves
1-2 drops green coconut pandan paste
a drop of green  yellow color or 1/4 tsp tumeric powder
dash of salt (to toast up d milky taste)
Castor sugar to be dropped in the centre (about 1/4 tsp for each kuih)
Method:
1.Clean & wash d pandanus leaves. Blend together with 2 cups of water. Strain d mixture & set aside.
2. Bring together d flour, coconut milk, eggs, coconut pandan paste & salt in a mixing bowl. Mix well till u  get a thick batter. 
3. Add in the pandanus water  plain water. Just add in bit by bit till u got a flowing batter. Not too dilute please..
4. Strain d batter.
5. Meanwhile heat up the mould on the stove. Slather it with some cooking oil to prevent sticking.
6. Place a ladle-ful of the mixture to 3/4 fill each mould.
7. Sprinkle about 1/4 tsp of sugar in the center of each mixture.
Sprinkle d minced meat filling prepared earlier. Garnish with sliced red chillies & spring onion.
8. Cover with lid and cook about 5 mins or the kueh is done when the top is dry.
9. ogyep uses 'cake tester' to pull out the Kueh from d mould.
Please do not get confused ya with all d cancellation above... 
I m trying to be creative here.. hahaha... 
So lazy, to re-type d recipe again.

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُه
&
Good Day
KuEh CaRa MaNiS is a Malay inspired dumpling TaKoYaKi (d Japanese style dumpling) cooked on a hot plate.
It is a Malay delicacy that uses a flour mixture and is cooked in a patterned iron or brass mould. 
This kuih comes in 2 varieties, you can make it plain sweet, just by dropping some sugar in the center or savoury, by adding a mixture of spiced minced meat mixture.
Here is an authentic recipe of d :
KuEh CaRa MaNiS. 
Ingredients:
4 cups plain flour
2 boxes Coconut Milk (ogyep likes to use d MS brand)
3 eggs
2 cups water (blend together with d pandanus leaves)
5-6 pandanus leaves
1-2 drops green coconut pandan paste
a drop of green color (if u like)
dash of salt (to toast up d milky taste)
Castor sugar to be dropped in the centre (about 1/4 tsp for each kuih)
Method:
1.Clean & wash d pandanus leaves. Blend together with 2 cups of water. Strain d mixture & set aside.
2. Bring together d flour, coconut milk, eggs, coconut pandan paste & salt in a mixing bowl. Mix well till u  get a thick batter. 
3. Add in the pandanus water. Just add in bit by bit till u got a flowing batter. Not too dilute please..
4. Strain d batter.
5. Meanwhile heat up the mould on the stove. Slather it with some cooking oil to prevent sticking.
6. Place a ladle-ful of the mixture to 3/4 fill each mould.
7. Sprinkle about 1/4 tsp of sugar in the center of each mixture.
8. over and cook about 5 mins or the kueh is done when the top is dry.
9. ogyep uses 'cake tester' to pull out the Kueh from d mould.
BAHAN-BAHAN:
4 cawan tepung gandum 
2 kotak santan kelapa (ogyep suka guna M&S)
3 biji telur
 2 cawan air - untuk dikisar bersama daun pandan
5-6 helai daun pandan
1-2 drops green coconut pandan paste (ogyep suka bau lemak pandannya)
Castor sugar - untuk diletakkan ditengah2 Kueh
Garam secukup rasa - untuk menaikkan rasa lemak adunan
Minyak masak secukupnya - untuk mengoles acuan
CARA MEMBUATNYA :-) 
1. Daun pandan dicuci dan kisar bersama air kemudian ditapis. 
2. Satukan tepung gandum, santan, telur & coconut pandan paste. Kacau rata dengan whisk hingga semua sebati, tambah garam secukup rasa. 
3. Ketika ini adunan kita akan kelihatan sedikit pekat. Masukkan air perahan daun pandan tadi secara sedikit2, bagi memastikan adunan kita nanti tidak terlalu cair. Adunan sepatutnya sedikit cair seperti adunan kuih kaswi camtu..
4. Kacau dan tapis adunan tadi. Untuk memastikan aduna  tidak berketul2. 
5. Panaskan acuan kuih cara (acuan kuih baulu) atas dapur gas, gunakan api perlahan. Lenser sedikit minyak masak pada lubang2 acu.
6. Apabila acuan sudah panas, bolehlah mula menuang adunan tadi ke dalam lubang2 acu sehingga 3/4 penuh. 
7. Sudukan 1/4 sudu gula pasir pada setiap kuih. (Anggaran hujung sudu sahaja.)
Tutup permukaannya acuan dengan tudung periuk. 
8. Kueh Cara kita sudah masak sekiranya, ia tidak lagi melekat apabila disentuh.
9. ogyep gunakan 'cake tester' untuk mengeluarkan kueh dari acunya apabila sudah masak.
My ogyep's KuEh CaRa MaNis..
Will try to update d savoury version of this KuEh CaRa soon.
Till then, ogyep would like to take this opportunity to wish
ALL D BEST & GOOD LUCK
to
ALL UPSR CANDIDATES
Let us pray for d success.. InshaALLAH.. AMINN
All d best 2 NURSYAFIQAH SABRINA

IT HAS BEEN A WHILE.. TIME TO CATCH UP..

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُه
&
Good Day
Lama betul tak 'go-blog'.. berhabuk sana-sini..
OMG.. 
It almost feels like cleaning off the dust a bit here & a bit there on this ogyep yummy mellow kitchen. 
My last post was in Feb 2013 and some of you might think that I was  forced into hibernation by a harsh haze recently.
hahaha..
Happy Eid Mubarak.. Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri
It is already  13 days into Eidulfitri i.e. 13 Syawal..
Hopefully, it is still not too late to wish all my Muslim friends and visitors Eid Mubarak or Selamat Hari Raya! 
I hope that all of you who are celebrating Eid have had a great and heart-warming celebration wherever you are.
InshaAllah.. Aminnnn..
It really has been a while since my last blogpost. I've been rather busy with my baking project or my other cores..
This will probably take me a while to get back to blogging on a regular basis, so for now I will keep it simple.
Frequent readers of my blog would have noticed that I am not very active these days, especially for the past 4-5 months..
A lot happened in the meantime. 
Just to point a few (in no special order):
1. Lost my father on 29 Nov 2012
2. Lost my father in law on 28 May 2013.
3. Lost  my grandmother on 4 July 2013
4.Bzzzz with my 2013 hari raya cookies project.
5. Two of my girls will be facing UPSR & PMR this year .. Bzzzz monitoring their schedule.
Thus, have made me to realize that nothing is permanent in this world and how powerless we are in controlling the things which happen around us.  
One thing after another.. 
ALLAH is great..
Well, what is past is already past... and it’s time for me to realize that life has to go on.  
And I guess I am recovering and will be in a position to overcome it.
What ever happens, life has to go on…

So, as for now..
Happy Eid Mubarak and Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri once again, from ogyep yummy mellow. 
And should I  have accidentally hurt anyone’s feeling with my words on this blog.. I am sincerely apologize.
Looking forward for your heartiest continuous support.. 
Will slowly try to spend time 2 blog-walk to others space..
 InshaAllah..
