Salted Eggs (Telur Masin)

 I was excited to find abundance of fresh duck eggs in the hypermarket. I stayed 25 years in Miri but never found any except salted ones. Making my own salted eggs really excites me.... There are two ways you can make them... wrap the eggs with salted clay or soak in salted water. The later is much easier unless in my hometown I can get clay easily from around my mother's house.

15 Duck Eggs - wash
1 liter Water
1 cup Hot Water
370g Salt

1. Mix salt and water until dissolved in a big glass jar.
2. Place eggs in the jar and let it soak for 4 weeks.
3. The eggs are ready when the egg yolk is oily when boiled - see photos below.
TIPS: Place a bag of water on top of the eggs to dip them under the water.

Seronok nya dapat buat telur masin sendiri. Tak sangka boleh dapat telur itik segar dgn mudah dari hypermarket kat KL ni dgn harga berpatutan. Nak buat telur masin amat mudah tapi perlukan kesabaran menunggu. Kalau tak cukup lama kuning telur nya tak cantik kemerahan atau tidak berkilat. Along buat rendam dgn air garam jer. Kalau nak buat bungkus dlm tanah liat pon senang gak tapi susah lak nak cari melainkan Along balik kampung memang banyak tanah liat keliling rumah emak.

15 bj Telur Masin - basuh bersih 
1 liter Air
1 cwn Air Panas
370g Garam

1. Campur garam dan air sehingga larut, di dalam balang kaca besar.
2. Masukkan telur dan biarkan selama 4 minggu.
3. Telur masin yg di rebus, kuning nya akan merah berkilat & berminyak apabila sudah cukup matang.
 Tip dari Mymoone Esa, sahabat FB: letakkan sebungkus plastik yg berisi air di atas telur2 itu supaya elok tenggelem di dalam air dan tidak terapung.

After one week, the eggs are already salty but the egg yolks are not and the color was pale yellow. See my blur photo below - using handphone camera did not really work well under dim light. I purposely test it so that I can show you how it looks like compared to fully matured salted eggs:
Selepas seminggu - putih telur dah masin tapi kuning telur masih pucat dan tak masin

I tested again after two weeks.... part of the egg yolks were beautifully red and oily except small portion in the middle:
Selepas 2 minggu, kuning telur dah berminyak dan kemerahan cantik tapi ada sedikit di tengah yg masih kuning

After four weeks, the egg yolks were perfectly red and oily:
Selepas 4 minggu, kuning telur bertukar kemerahan sepenuh nya

Carrot Cheese Muffins (Muffin Lobak Merah Keju)

 These muffins are perfect for breakfast... They are not sweet at all and therefore I served them with butter spread and my favourite blueberry jam. The texture is crumbly and a bit like Mark & Spencer scones I used to buy during school days (However I couldn't find any of them anymore when I visited London last year).... I love every bite of it and enjoyed with cup of hot English tea in the morning and afternoon.

Lampam Asam Kunyit

My auntie (Acu) gave me a freshly caught carp during my visit to Sg Petani recently. It was huge so I fried half of it and cooked this dish out of the remaining half. My hubby and I love this kind of healthy dish - well balanced spicy, sweet and sour taste fragranced with lemongrass and galangal flower.

 Recipe in English will be provided if there is any request.

Sedap nya masak asam rebus-rebus ni... buat nya ikan tu segar dari sungai. Rezeki Along dapat seekor ikan Lampam segar dari MakCu. Along teringin nak makan goreng & cicah air asam dan juga teringin nak masak Asam Kunyit. Ikan tu cukup besar, jadi Along potong dua, sekerat goring dan sekerat masak asam. Selera kami dua laki bini makan hirup-hirup....hehee.

Nak masak rebus ni kena pandai imbangkan rasa masam dan pedas nya. Jangan terlalu masam supaya tidak hilang rasa manis ikan yg segar. Meh tengok camna Along masak lauk ni....

Moist Orange Poppy Seeds Muffins

 I love my cube shape muffin tin that I bought recently.... it is cute and most of all I don't need to line with paper cups... therefore my muffins are browned all over!

I'm using the recipe from here but modified the sweetness and added some poppy seeds. The muffins are so soft and moist that it can easily break if hold too long. I brought them to my sister's house for my niece's birthday gathering and were a hit.

By: Roz@HomeKreation
Yields: ~2 dozens
175g Self-raising Flour
130g Caster Sugar
175g Butter
5 tbsp Milk
2 medium Eggs
1 large Oranges - grate rind & squeeze juice
40g Sugar - for topping

1. Place flour, sugar, butter, milk, eggs and orange rind into a large mixing bowl.
Whisk with an electric mixer until all ingredients are incorporated.
2. Scoop into muffin pan / cups and bake for 15 minutes until cooked.
3. 10 mins before end of baking time, heat together topping sugar and orange juice in a small saucepan.
4. Remove muffins from oven and make some holes on top with a skewer.
5. Pour orange juice mixture onto the muffins.

Leave muffins in the pan until cold before invert.

Cantik tak muffin bentuk kiub ni? Along suka sebab ia comel dan tak melekat... tak payah guna kertas lapik so muffin tu nanti akan berkerak keperangan keseluruhan nya.... ini menambahkan keharuman dan menyelerakan!

Muffin ni amat gebu sekali dan kena hati2 sewaktu di pegang takut hancur.... kalau masuk mulut lagilah terus hilang....hehee. Along ubauhsuai resipi yg terdahulu kat sini, kurangkan gula dan tambahkan poppy seeds dan buat bentuk muffins supaya senang nak bawa ke majlis.

Kek Lapis Asam Manis Evergreen (Sarawak Pandan & Hawflakes Layered Cake)

 My youngest brother passed away a year ago most unexpectedly at young age, just few months away before his wedding. Most of our siblings gathered in Jan recently for special prayer for him on the one year anniversary.... many al-fatihah for you Dik and may Allah bless your soul... we will always miss you!

I baked this cake a couple of months ago for the family on the occasion but didn't manage to publish earlier due to blogging problem as you know. This is my favorite Sarawak Layered Cake of all that I've made before... I love the fragrant of the Pandan paste and the moist texture... the sweet sour flakes burst additional flavor which compliment it very well.
