CHEESE AND ONION BUNS, BURGER MALAYSIA AND AKHNI
Just out of the oven
Cheese and Onion Buns
All day long, I kept myself busy doing stuff so that I will forget about the toothache I'm suffering at the moment...and actually...it works. I don't quite feel the pain today. And maybe, because I am fasting, so that may contribute as well.
After finished with the house chores, I started my 'experiments' in my 'lab'! Since my daughter just love the Cheese and Onion Buns from the bakery in Limbe, I said to myself, why not try and bake it. So I got on to work. I combined the Basic Dough Recipe (Roshayati Johari), method by Alex Goh and topping, sort of, came from me! So this is what was produced! Am quite happy with the look. Didn't taste it yet because I was full up. When you break your fast, there's not much you can eat though before that, you wish to eat everything you see along the way! But I think it is nice because soon as my daughter came back from school, she ate 4 at one go! Either my breads are nice or she was starving! But I'd prefer the first one! Ahakkkssss !
Then, for the very first time, I tried kneading with my own hands instead of the mixer! I made Donut Suria. It was quite tough in the beginning. I was sitting on the floor while kneading. Funny stuffs came into my mind while I was busy 'excercising' my arm! Firstly I was thinking...by the time I finished kneading, my arms will become like Popeye the Sailor Man's! Then, I was thinking...my mixer would be saying....ahah....that's how I felt when you asked me to knead loads of your stuffs! Serves you right! ...hahaha....Apart from that, I was actually not too confident with my hand kneading. And there are few times that I wanted to stop and chuck the dough for my mixer to finish the job for me. But then, I said to myself! No no no...I must give it a try. Others can do, why can't I! So, after about half an hour, the result is so pleasing nice! My donuts puffed up and soft when fried. MamaFaMi BOLEH! Hahaha....I made the donuts into two different styles. One is just the normal donut coated with sugar and the other one, I transformed it into Burger Malaysia! It's just a round donut, cut into half after frying. On top of the cut piece, put a piece of cucumber and then Sambal Ikan Bilis (Anchovies fried with Chilie). You can also put a small piece of omellette as well but I ran out of time as I had to rush to Syahmi's school for a parent-teacher's appointment at 3.10pm.
And for breaking fast, I made Akhni. Got this recipe from my dear friend Naseem Dawood. Thanks Naseem for sharing with me your lovely Akhni.
AKHNI (Rice with Chicken)
1 chicken cut into pieces
1 large onion ~ diced
3 - 4 tomatoes ~ diced
2 potatoes ~ cut into 2 pieces
2 - 3 teaspoons ginger+garlic paste
1 teaspoon red chillie powder
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon corriander powder
1/2 teaspoon tumeric
1. Braise onions in oil with a few cinnamon sticks, cloves, cardamon, black pepper till light brown in color.
2. Add ginger+garlic paste
3. Add diced tomatoes and all the spices and let cook for a while.
4. Add chicken and cook till half cooked
5. Add water and potatoes and when it's boiling, add 2 cups rice and enough salt to taste.
6. Add green peppers chopped and green corriander. Mix and cook.
7. When a little water remaining, put on slow.
8. Serve with yogurt.
My way of cooking is slightly different from hers. I'd boil the rice like cooking normal white rice. While that is on the stove, I'll heat the oil and follow step 1 to 4. By the time the chicken is half cooked, the rice will start boiling. Then, I'll pour the chicken spices into the rice and let it cook. That way, I find, less crust at the bottom of the pot.
