Kuih Kundas

 Not many people know this kuih especially the later generation.... It is typically known as Kuih Kundas in my hometown although there are few other names like Cucur Kembung, Pak Tongkol, Kuih Bantal, etcs. My mother used to make them in a big batch using no precise measurements but the success was the dough riser sold in the next door groceries shop.... Nowadays, nobody knows what it the scientific name of the rising agent as it is obsolete.

 I tried making the same way that my mother did but using bicarbonate soda and the outcome was disappointing with hard texture. I gave it up ever since until recently when my eldest brother made a request for it again... so I decided to give this recipe a try which has many success feedback from the followers.... I was so thrilled with my attempt.... it turned out just the way I wanted it.... soft and fluffy with big air pockets which is perfect for stuffing peanut sauce.

225g Flour
120g Sugar
1 tsp Soda Bikarbonat
110ml Water

1. Mix all ingredients until smooth, no kneading necessary.
Leave to rest 30 minutes, or keep overnight.
2. Divide dough into small portions and roll flat. Alternatively, roll flat the whole lot and slice into smaller pieces.
Use flour to dust when handling as the dough is a bit sticky.
3. Deep fry in pre-heated oil until fluffy and nice golden brown.
4. Serve with peanut sauce or curry gravy.

 Kuih Kundas ni kat Perak kita panggil "Kuih Kundeh", kat tempat lain macam2 nama Cucuq Kembung, Kuih Bantal, dll.... amat popular waktu Along kecik2, Emak selalu buat.... kalau buat kena buat banyak2 sebab anak2 ramai dan semua nya suka sangat makan ni.... kalau ada kuah kacang atau kari memang best cicah. Ada yang suka mencicah, ada gak yang suka belah tepi nya dan tuang kuah kacang ke dalam ruang yg kembung tu. Kuih ni walau pun kembung tapi nak yg berisi sedikit kena leperkan jangan terlalu nipis... kalau tidak jadi Roti Puri pulak nanti.

 Dulu2 Emak buat kuih ni guna 'Ibu Kuih' yg di beli kat kedai runcit depan rumah. Sekarang ni kalau tanya apa nama ibu kuih tu takda pula yg tau... ada yang kata 'Pontas' tapi kalau cari kat baking shop, tiada siapa yg tau lagi. Ada gak kita orang cuba ganti dgn bic soda tapi kuih tu jadi amat keras.... selepas tu Along pun dah give up nak cuba... sehingga lah baru2 ni abang Along nak sangat makan kuih ni.... baru tergerak hati nak mencuba resepi yg satu ni sebab ramai yg sudah mencuba dgn jaya nya. Mula2 tu ragu juga sebab resepi ni guna bic soda... tapi kalau tak cuba kita tak tau kan.... Selepas mencuba, alangkah gembira nya hati Along sebab kuih nya lembut, kembung dan bersarang di dalam nya.... sama seperti yg Emak buat dahulu! Alhamdulillah, semuga murah rezeki kepada Alma yg berkongsi resepi simple ni.

Suasana Hari Raya Qurban di Kampung 2015

Since I got married in the last 25 years, this is my first Idh Adha celebration with my mother and siblings in my hometown as far as I can recall..... the reasons were because Idh Adha public holiday was only one day and always coincided with our peak work period in the past years while children had no school term break. Staying in the East Malaysia was just not possible to fly back with whole family for one day only.

In my hometown, Idh Adha is celebrated as bigger occasion than Idh Fitri. We had three days consecutively of family gathering with very busy activities and of course 'big makan-makan'. My mother is the planner and the leader in deciding what activities, the menu, the guests, etcs. Syukur at age of 75 she is still healthy to do most of the cooking with help of all of us. I will share some of my mother's delicious cooking in here. I will never able to beat my mother's cooking... really finger-licking good.

1.a Emak's Best Ever Black Rendang

1.b Emak's Delicious Chicken Rendang Pedas Kunyit

1.c Emak's Nasi Minyak
- Made with 5kg of rice, enough to feed all the children, grandchildren and great-grand children

1.d Nothing-Better-Than Emak's Pineapple Pachrey

1.e Dalca Campur

1.f AlongRoz's Crispy Veg Acar

1.g Lemang

1.h Nasi Himpit

1.i Mak Lang's Every-Year-Must-Have Peanut Sauce

1.j Sayur Lodeh and Sambal Ikan Bilis

1.k AlongRoz's Agar-Agar Pandan

 On Day 2 Idh Adha, we slaughtered three goats for distribution to neighbors and the needies. One goat was for our own consumption which was cooked in special Korma recipe by my AbangNdak. The Lamb Korma was super delicious as the meat was very fresh. We enjoyed it very much that I forgot to snap any photo on day two....

My niece cooked special Chicken Feet Noodle Soup to serve the hardworking men and women who did all the necessary activities like slaughtering, meat cutting, packing and delivering. This is her specialty with very tasty and nice spice aroma...

 All the family members, some relatives and friends gathered at my mother's house right after Subuh. It was the big day of the Idh as two cows were about to be sacrificed. It was a very busy day from early morning.... preparing breakfast, setting up the slaughtering area in the next door empty land and getting the equipment ready. There were more than 70 of us with lots of noises but so much fun and good feeling of togetherness.

The empty land was well prepared with tents for various purposes.... me and my niece had our fun cooking corner with freshly prepared lattice crepe and Roti Puri in addition to other ready prepared food. Other tents were for eating and working areas.

Breakfast Menu:
1.a Fried Rice
1.b Spaghetti Bolognaise
1.c Bingka Kastad
1.d Lattice Crepe
1.e Roti Puri
1.f Chicken Curry

Lunch Menu:
2.a CikNor's Special Beef Rice
2.b Air Asam (Special sauce for the rice)
2.c Cik Mah's Young Jackfruit Green Curry
2.d Fried Turmeric Beef
2.e OpahYam's Lime Acar
2.f Oni's Beef Bone Soup
2.g AlongRoz's Peparu Goreng Berempah
2.h Lime Asamboi Juice

Overall we had loads of fun.... alhamdulillah siratulrahim yang erat sesama keluarga dan sahabat-handai.

White Honeycomb Cake - Pak Thong Koh

I was very thrilled to see the outcome of my first trial of the kuih.... although it could have been better if my steamer didn't dry out half way. This kuih was so soft and very tasty as it uses coconut juice and most importantly is to achieve the desired look of honeycombs....! I will not be successful without a help from my FB friend who supplied the flour and guided me step by step on the making process.... such a lovely friend whom I only know from the Facebook.

Unfortunately I didn't manage to get the permission of the original owner to share the recipe in this blog. Hopefully she will respond to my request later.

Batter fully fermented, ready for steaming

  Seronok nya dapat merasa kuih ni.... dah lama teringin nak makan tapi tak pernah nampak orang Melayu jual kuih ni. Alhamulillah, dapat sahabat yg baik hati di alam maya yg sudi berkongsi resepi dgn Along, bahkan dapat tepung nya sekali dan penerangan terperinci cara2 nak buat.

 Syukur menjadi walaupun air kukusan terkering separuh jalan.... kalau tidak mungkin lebih cantik lagi sarang nya. Kuih ni lembut dan rasa nya sedap wangi sebab letak air kelapa.

 Buat masa ni Along tak dapat nak kongsikan resepi nya sebab masih menunggu tuan punya resepi asal beri izin... Harap2 dia jawab mesej Along tu....

Bingka Telur Kastad

The women social group of this residence organized morning coffee ala pot-lucks. Since we are all from various nationalities, we were asked to bring our national specialties. Bingka is Malay specialty cake (kuih) so I thought it will be a good idea for this purpose. Coincidently I saw Sue posted the kuih while I was searching for idea... I like the kuih very much and so did the women.... It is easy to adapt to this kuih and in fact it doesn't require any mind twisting at all.... They all love it at first bite!

Crackle Top Brownies (Brownies Kedut)

 This is nice moist brownies and supposedly with shiny crackle top but mine turned-out to be matte dark crust.... Taste-wise is great and I have the crackle top but am not 100% satisfied.... I need to figure out what to improve in order to achieve the desired beautiful top crust... either the steps or the quality of the ingredients.... Many others have tried the recipe and successful so I just need to try again.... From research I saw comment that the chocolate need to be hot when added to the batter.... that probably it....? Anyway, on the second thought what is the fuss... the brownies are still delicious and moist and definitely with crispy crust whether it is shiny or not... LOL!

Three-Ingredient Japanese Cotton Cheesecake

The SoufflĂ© Cheesecake, also known as a Japanese Cotton Cheesecake, is made herewith using only three ingredients - eggs, white chocolate and cream cheese. It is prepared in 5 minutes and ready in less than an hour! It is so simple that it has over four million viewers in YouTube and attracted the professional chefs and bloggers in Western countries to try the recipe. While some failed miserably on their trials and condemn Ochikeron for her 'scrambled egg taste cake' (amongst others are the BST from The Telegraph and Mail Online), I am so thrilled that mine is successful and thankful to Ochikeron on her brilliant recipe. The trick is you must follow all her instruction carefully and you will get fluffy and spongy yet moist cheesecake... mine did not shrink nor crack... it tastes perfectly with moderate sweetness and all well balanced taste and texture.

In fact I made mine twice in one day... I made it in the weekend for my sister... the first round was chomped and cleared immediately that I rushed to make the second one and that one was also cleared! It tastes so much better than the Japanese Cotton Cheesecake from the bakery, especially your own is fresh from the oven! It is nice to serve when warmed.

In the second one, I put in extra 50g extra cream cheese in order to clear all the balance... it did not affect the outcome but produces slightly denser and creamier in taste. The photos I've posted here are all from the second attempt. My first attempt has more and bigger holes, lighter and fluffier but didn't manage to snap a good photo once it get ambushed....LOL.

Source: YouTube (the video is embedded below)
Size: 6" round
3 Eggs
120g White Chocolate - broken into pieces
120g Cream Cheese - softened

1. Preheat oven to 170C.
2. Melt the chocolate in a double-boiler.
Add the cream cheese and melt them together.
Remove from heat, add in egg yolks and mix well.
3. Whip egg whites with an electric mixer until firm peaks form.
4. Add 1/3 of the egg whites into the cream cheese mixture and blend well with a spatula.
Then add the rest of the meringue 1/2 at a time and mix well.
5. Rub some oil/butter on parchment paper to prevent cracking.
Line the round cake pan with the parchment paper.
Pour the batter into the pan and drop the pan lightly on the counter to raise the air bubbles out of the batter.
6. Place the cake pan on a baking sheet. Pour some hot water into the baking sheet.
Bake at 170C (338F) for 15 minutes, 160C (320F) for 15 minutes, then stop the heat and bake with the remaining heat for 15 minutes.
7. When it is done, place the cake pan on a wire rack to cool completely. Brush with apricot jam syrup, add whipped cream and/or dust with powdered sugar if desired.

Watch Ochikeron's video below for more details:

Teruja sangat dengan resipi yang menggunakan hanya tiga bahan ni..... amat mudah nak buat nya pun tak sampai sejam dah boleh siap. Rasa nya pun amat sedap.... malah lebih sedap dari yang beli dari kedai... manis nya sederhana sebab tak letak gula dan manisan dari coklat putih sahaja. Kek nya lembab walaupun amat ringan dan berlubang2 seperti span.

Resepi ni amat popular di YouTube (4.5 juta view) sehingga menarik ramai pemberita2 barat melapurkan nya.... ada media barat yang mencuba tapi condemn lak bila tak menjadi.... Alhamdulillah, Along berjaya membuat nya... kek tak merekah atau mengecut atau bantat seperti yang di tuduh oleh pihak media barat. Kek orang Asia ni memang lah depa tak biasa buat lepas tu kata Cik Ochikeron pakai baju bunga2 cantik sebab tu kek pun nampak cantik walaupun tak cantik... ada ke patut pihak media professional seperti The Telegraph dan Mail Online buat lapuran camtu... kalau duit banyak sangat jemput ler Cik Ochikeron tu buat show kat tv dan rasa sendiri kek tu.... betul tak?

Nak buat kek ni, Along sarankan anda lihat video kat atas tu dulu... ikut segala arahan dan tips yang di berikan kalau nak dapat kek yang cantik gebu.... Kalau tak jadi jangan salahkan orang yang berkongsi....

Grease and line tin with paper

Source: YouTube (video asal ada Along letak kat atas)
Alih-bahasa oleh HomeKreation
Saiz: 6" round
3 bj Telur
120g Coklat Putih - patah2kan
120g Cream Cheese - lembutkan pada suhu bilik

1. Panaskan oven 170C.
2. Cairkan coklat dalam double-boiler.
Masukkan cream cheese dan cairkan sekali.
Angkat dari double-boiler, masukkan kuning telur dan gaul sebati.
3. Pukul putih telur sehingga bertanduk.
4. Masukkan 1/3 putih telur ke dlm adunan cream cheese dan gaul dgn senduk sehingga sebati.
Masukkan 1/2 baki putih telur dan akhirnya baki selebih nya.
5. Sapu minyak / mentega ke atas kertas pelapik supaya kek tidak merekah .Tengok gambo tin yg Along buat.
Tuangkan adunan ke dlm tin yg di lapik kertas tadi dan di hentak2 sedikit supaya tiada angin berlebihan.
6. Letakkan tin kek ke dalam dulang yg berisi air panas.
Bakar 170C selama 15 minit, 160C selama 15 minit, off dan biarkan di dlm oven 15 minit.
7. Sejukkan kek & sapu jem aprikot, krim atau ayakkan gula aising (Along tak buat).

Sedikit tips dari AlongRoz....
1. Hati2 bila cairkan coklat putih, air jangan terlalu banyak dan pastikan api kecil, takut nanti coklat rosak & mengeras.
2. Jangan campurkan telur sewaktu adunan cheese masih panas, nanti telur tak berfungsi untuk menaikkan kek
3. Pastikan putih telur di pukul sehingga kental & tidak berair. Campurkan ke dlm adunan cheese sehingga rata.
4. Kertas mesti di minyakkan seperti yg di tunjukkan dlm video... Along spray dgn baking oil. Ini supaya kek tak terlebih mengembang dan mengecut apabila sejuk.

Tengoklah betapa gebu berlubang2 cheesecake Along ni.....hehee

One-Minute Brownie

 I often hesitated to make what I craved for because of a big portion that I have to clear myself... worry no more with this recipe! It is not too much for one serving and perhaps too little for two unless you are over-conscious on dessert consumption.

I made this as dessert after the unplanned dinner with last minute turn-up guests last week-end.... it was so easy that I got it done while making coffee! All it takes was just one minute in the microwave oven and walaaa.... nice dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

Yields: one or two small cups
2 tbsp Butter
2 tbsp Sugar
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 pinch Salt
1 Egg Yolk
1/4 tsp Vanilla Essence
4 tbsp Flour
1 tbsp Cocoa Powder
Chocolate Chips

1. Melt butter in a cup, using microwave function High for 20 seconds or until melted.
Beat in sugar, VE, salt using spoon until sugar is dissolved.
Add in egg yolk, flour & coca powder.
2. Sprinkle chocolate chips and place the cup in microwave on High for one minute.
(For smaller portion, I split into two small ramekins).
3. Serve right away with a scoop of ice-cream.

  Kalau takut2 nak makan kek (....ayat diet) tapi nak gak makan.... elok buat yang ni.... seciput sorang jer... nak buat pun senang cam bancuh kopi jer.... keduk2 dalam cawan jer lepas seminit dah siap masak.... tak caya? Tak caya cuba lah noh.... Tapi kan, biasalah kek yang senang2 ni tak leh lah nak banding dgn standard Secret Recipe pulak tau... Setakat nak sekali ngap tu kira ok sedap gak lah.... pekena dgn aiskrim terangkat gak jadi nya.

Soft Durian Cheesecake II

 This is my second Durian Cheesecake recipe.... This version is lighter than the earlier one and very moist.... the durian touch is not overpowering and well balanced with the cheesecake. Each version has its own selling points depending whether you like the traditional solid or soft cottony cheesecake.

I made it to serve my BFFs from Miri & KL a couple of weeks ago and it was well received. I was too busy entertaining the guests that I didn't really have time to shoot nice photos.... nevertheless, am sharing the recipe herewith...

Cheesecake Durian yang lembut dan lembab.... Along buat untuk kawan2 yg berziarah dua minggu lepas.... Ada yang makan bertambah.... sedap lah tu... hehee... hubby pun suka kira oklah.... tapi kalau anda memang tak minat durian lain citer lah ya...heheee.

Gambo kurang menarik kali ni.... potongan pun comot jer sebab nak cepat.... tak syoklah kita dok sibuk snap2 depan tetamu, so cincai2 jer lah gambo apa yang sempat.... janji resepi nya kita kongsikan di sini ok...
