Bahulu Ros (Rose Muffins)

 I was looking for an idea what to make for a colleague's wife who came to visit Miri and also happened to be my blog follower..... I came home late from office so can't do anything too time consuming or too many ingredients which I may not readily had. After searching, then I came across this at Ummi's blog. I am very please with the texture which very much resembles the traditional Malay muffins - crispy on the outside and spongy in the inside. It is called Bahulu Ros because of the added rose essence but the name gave me the idea to use my silicon rose muffin mould that I bought about a year ago but still unused.

Jeruk Mangga (Young Mango Pickles)

 Home-made pickles is much better than the ones sold in shop because no added preservatives and you can control the sweetness level to your liking. Hubby brought back some young mangoes from kampung so I thought it will be a good idea to make pickles. Although I'm not a fan of any pickles, I made it with intention to give away to some friends (one of the colleague's wife is pregnant....).

By: Roz@HomeKreation
INGREDIENTS:
8 Young Mangoes - peeled & sliced 
2-3 tbsp Coarse Salt
A pinch of Lime Paste*
Water* (* mix) 
Sugar Syrup (1½ cup sugar boiled with 2 cups water) 

METHOD:
1. Make sure mangoes are peeled - initially I did not & it turned-out hard that I have to peel on a second day of fermentation.
2. Sprinkle salt on mango slices in a big bowl and mix well.
Place it in a jar (I used an antique Horlicks jar that I've been keeping since last 20+ years).
Fill with water* until fully covered.
Leave it for one or two days (until it change color to a bit yellowish).
3. After one to two days, discard water & rinse if too salty.
4. Mix with sugar syrup (make more sugar syrup if you like it extra sweet).
Keep in fridge for overnight to allow sugar fully absorbed into mango slices.
Ready!

Nasi Minyak Bandung

 Surprise with this rice version? I prepared it yesterday to welcome my hubby and AlongRiz home after they were away for two days and particularly because Liana loves anything pink... from clothes to books, toys and even food & drink. I also saw it in one of the magazines (with different name) but did not follow the recipe which is a bit too spicy. I wanted to make a simple taste rice without too much spices which will be more suitable for toddler like Liana and furthermore a simple version will make you want to eat more without getting fed-up too quick.

Try this beautiful mildly colored rice to impress your guests on special occasion.... I'll share the dishes that I served with the rice later.
