Apam Pisang (Malay Steam Banana Cake)

Translation: "Apam" means steam Malay cake which does not use any oily/greasy ingredients and hence considered a healthy choice.

It has been very long time since I last ate Apam Pisang. Since I have some riped bananas, I decided to give a try on the recipe I found in Mesra.net for children's breakfast tomorrow. It turned out to be very soft Apam.

(Makes 8" round)
INGREDIENTS:
4 Eggs
1 cup Sugar
2 cups Plain Flour*
1 tsp Soda Bicarbonate*
1 tsp Baking Powder* (* sifted together)
6 Riped Bananas - mashed
A pinch Salt

METHOD:
1. Beat eggs & sugar until thick.
Mix in flour mixture until well combined.
Add in mashed banana & salt & mix well.

2. Put a layer of banana leaf in a tin & oil.
Steam for 45 minutes.

MeeHoon Soto


My sweet friend gave me varieties of paste recently, so this morning I tried making MeeHoon Soto using Soto paste that she gave me. Emmmh, not only it is less troubles but very delicious too. I planned this since last night, so I had the rice cubes (Nasi Himpit) cooked last night ready for consumption in the morning.

INGREDIENTS:
10-12 Mini Nasi Himpit (rice cubes) - boiled per packet instruction & cool
½ packet MeeHoon - blanched
1 packet Soto paste
1 whole Chicken Breast
1 bowl Bean Sprout - blanched
1 Bean Curd - sliced & deep fried
Some Suhun (vermicili) - deep fried
Some Shallots - sliced & deep Fried
Spring Onion - chopped for garnish
Salt

METHOD:
1. Boil 1½ liter water with Soto paste.
Add in whole chicken breast, Salt & boil until tender.
Pick the chicken out from the soup & shredd to thin long pieces - use it as garnish.

2. Serve Nasi Himpit, Mee Hoon with the Soto soup and garnish with shredded chicken flesh, bean sprout, fried bean curd, Suhun, spring onion, fried onion & chilli ketchup/oil.

3. To make chilli ketchup, blend Chilli Padi with garlic, soya bean, lime juice & chilli sauce.

Banana Fritters

I've got plenty of "Pisang Tanduk" from kampung. "Pisang Tanduk", literally translated as "Horn Banana", is a common banana variety planted in Malaysia. The name must be after its size & shape. The ones shown in photo below measured slightly above one foot long. This variety is commonly used to make banana fritters, a famous freshly fried off-street snacks.

For recipe, refer to earlier posting here.

Egg, Pineapple, Potato & Salted Fish Curry

This recipe is created based on my wild appetite and what available in the kitchen. I've been keeping the salted fish from my mum for quite sometime and it is time to dispose it into the cooking pot. I cannot find "Ikan Talang masin" (name of the salted fish) in Miri, so it is kind of precious stock & cook only when the craving is high.

INGREDIENTS:
4 boiled Eggs
½ Pineapple - peeled & sliced
1 Potato - peeled & cubed
Some Salted Fish (Ikan Talang is the best)
3 tbsp Curry Powder (I used curry powder for cooking beef instead of for fish)
3 Shallots - sliced
½ pot Coconut Milk
1 each Cinnamon stick*, Star Anise*, Cardamon* & few Cloves*

METHOD:
1. Place coconut milk & curry powder in a pot & boil.
Add in potato & cook until half cooked.
Add in pineapple, salted fish & cook for 5-10 minutes.
Adding salt may not be necessary but check to taste.

2. In a small pan, heat up 2 tbsp oil & fry sliced onion & spices* until onion is golden.
Pour the whole thing into the cooked curry.

3. Serve with rice.

Black Glutinous Rice Cake

I have been searching for black glutinous rice flour for ages and only last week I finally found it. I got so excited and cannot wait to try this recipe which I have been keeping for long time. The owner of the recipe is Loveliana from MR.

I was shocked when the cake mixture turned up grey in color. Luckily it turned to the expected color once cooked. The taste is marvellous! It is light like chiffon but the aroma of black glutinous is really seducing! (Makes 9" round tin)
INGREDIENTS:
5 Egg Whites*
150g Sugar*
½ tsp Salt*
5 Egg Yolks
100ml Coconut Cream
75ml Cooking Oil
150g Black Glutinous Rice Flour
½ tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Bicarbonate Soda

METHOD:
1. Beat ingredients * until stiff.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the rest of ingredients until smooth.
Mix into egg white mixture.
Pour into ungreased tube pan (I used round pan lined with ungreased paper).

3. Bake at 180C for 50 minutes.

Mee Soup

The children enjoyed the Mixed Soup I made last night so much that I decided to make again this morning to serve with dried noodles that I received in the parcel the other day. Everybody complimented that the noodles taste chewy and very nice - unlike the typical ones sold in the supermarket. My third son even suggested that I request some more from my friend...hahaha (LOL) I laughed and told him that is an embarassing thing to do but will compliment my friend for the gift.

Here is how the noodles look like:
Blanche the noodles in hot water quickly and serve with hot soup & chili sauce of your choice. For the soup recipe, refer here.

Sambal Ikan Bilis Cili Padi

To accompany the Mixed Soup, I made this hot sambal - inspired from Hana's home. However, unlike Hana's sambal which was green, mine became red because of color of my Cili Padis. I also shortcut the method i.e. fry them all at one go instead of fry each ingredients separately & pound last (lazy......hehe). This is real good ...!

This time I just pasted her recipe here, if anyone needs translation, just shout.

Bahan-bahan
20 biji cili api (digoreng)
2 ulas bawang putih (digoreng)
1 biji bawang besar
segenggam ikan bilis (digoreng)
secubit garam
2 biji limau kasturi

Cara-cara
Tumbuk cili api, bawang putih dan bawang besar bersama sedikit garam
Masukkan ikan bilis, gaulkan dgn sudu, hancur2kan sedikit
Perahkan limau kasturi, sedia utk dihidangkan :)

Mixed Soup

I made this last night dinner - something healthy but also delicious. Whole family enjoyed it very much.

INGREDIENTS:
5 pieces Chicken parts
Imitate Crabsticks
Fish Balls & Squid Balls
Shrimps - peeled
Black Fungus
Dried Chinese Mushrooms
Carrots
1 Tomato - cut to 8 parts
4 cloves Garlic - chopped
1 tsp freshly grounded Black Pepper

Boil until chicken is fully cooked.
Add in the rest of ingredients & cook until all done.

Bananas from my Garden

I have four banana trees fruiting - one tree was cut down a couple of months ago and this time my husband cut down two trees at the same time. This type is called "Pisang Abu" and best for banana fritters. He chopped the trees on last Sunday and until today the two bunches of bananas are still resting at my back door (one of them start riping already). We are too busy to send away to relatives & friends. Gheee.... so many for a small family... anyone out there interested...? hehehe.

Teringat lak kat adik2 Azie & Hana. Few days ago they all cakap tingin sangat nak mkn pisang goreng. Hana yg kat Jepun tu hentam jer apa2 pisang yg jumpa nak lepas ngidam. Shian nya... I wish I could share these bananas with both of you.... takpe lah share gambo pun jadi lah ek... the thought that count, kan?
