It was raining the other day and everybody's reluctant to get out of the house. We're contented with just bread and scramble eggs for the day. Couch and tv seemed to be more delicious than anything else.. but since perut dah main lagu lagu Bandi Amuk and Metal Asia, we decided to make a simple dinner. A Kampung Style Mee Sup, well, not so kampung lah, if to compare how my mum use to prepare it kan? But today, I will feature my sister punya not so kampung style...
- Daging (rebus dan ketepikan air rebusan) - kalau korang malas, rebus sekali dengan kuah nanti.
- Lada Hitam (tumbuk)
- Beberapa Ulas Bawang Putih
- Beberapa Labu Bawang Merah
- Halia (sikit jer)
- Rempah Tumis
- MeeHoon / Mee Kuning
- Sawi (Kawan aku kata sawi ni rasa plastik, as if dia penah makan plastik kan?)
- Cili Padi Potong
- Daun Bawang Sup / Aku lebih suka daun ketumbar, malangnya tak de

Puan Mazni is my old friend, that I’ve known during college heydays. One of the popular girl in my batch. We’ve been through a lot as student and best friends as we’re taking the same course and in the same class, and I considered it as one of the precious and happy times. I remembered that whenever there is guy interested to get to know her, they will come to me first, either to get permission or some tips on how to start. As if I’m her agent kan? I know at least a bunch of guys in my class who’s interested in her, but couldn’t reveal it here as some people might get offended.
After college, we sort of lost contact but thanks to face book that allow us to get re-connected. Anyway Maz and the blog reader, here’s the recipe, and if you tried it, let me know how it goes ok?
Talam Suji (I normally use 25cm x 25cm tray)
220gm fine semolina flour (tepung suji)
650ml coconut milk
1 screwpine leave (daun pandan)
A few drops of yellow food colouring
135gm flour (tepung gandum)
15gm cornflour (tepung jagung)
650ml thick coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
150 gm palm sugar (gula merah)
Black or dark brown food colouring if desired
Method:- oil/grease your tray with a cooking oil or butter
Place a fine semolina flour and yellow food colouring in a pot. Blend coconut milk, pandanus leave, sugar and salt. Sieve to get only the liquid and mix in with the flour. Stir on a medium heat until it becomes thick or until it covered the back of the metal spoon. Then transfer it into the tray and steam it for about 15 minutes. Prepare the top layer…
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Sieve/filter to get only the liquid and place in a pot. After 10 – 15 minutes of steaming the bottom layer, place the pot of the top layer on a medium heat and stir till the mixture thickens. Before pour it on top of the bottom layer, scratch the bottom layer with a fork to make sure that the top and bottom layer won’t separate when you cut it. After pouring the top layer, steam for another 15 minutes. Let it cool before cutting.
Happy trying or if you have doubt on some of the process, let me know and I’ll explain it further.

Writing this not to tell the whole world that I’m in love with her, yes, I’m in love with her but not that kind of love ok? Dia tu isteri orang.. karang tak pasal pasal laki dia langgar aku ngan kete wira dia.. haha. She ordered this long ago… right before CNY, but something came up so she didn’t get to collect it, neither do I have the opportunity to deliver it… so terbengkalai kat rumah. I know that its’ shelf-life is very long. 4 bulan pun boleh simpan lagi as long as tak bukak dia punya tape tu. Tapi, for this dear friend, I want her to have the one that is fresh from the oven. So, selepas almost one month.. I had to open the package when my nephew came to visit me from Johor. Actually bukak bukan for him, tapi for his girlfriend that he just introduced to me.. biasala aku kan? Berbudi tak bertempat… haha. The remaining package di beli oleh si Arif on his way home to visit his parents. Tup tup his sister liked it and ordered 3 packages more. That was good…

Ms Nadia; Hayyan's mom who worked at IIC order dengan aku Banana Chocolate Cake and knowing that her son is a fan of superheroes, she requested supaya aku boleh accomodate to Hayyan's interest. Tapi, memandangkan aku nih tak berapa bertauliah, not to mention the turntable yang aku masih belum beli (mesti kena seranah dengan Moon nih kalau dia baca), kami pun decidela tuk buat Ben 10. to order that edible image, kenala amik masa sikit, so I ordered the simple one. I thot based on that black and white picture, the image looks fine. Tapi, bila dapa aje, it's much too plain to excite even a small kid like Hayyan.
Being me yang masih belajar tips & tricks of cake baking, akupun tidak lah pulak di turunkan idea oleh yang maha kuasa tentang bagaimana nak membuat image tu nampak more appealing and interesting, melainkan menambah 'decor gel' jer. So, the photo was taken from Ms Nadia's blog.
to Hayyan - have the most wonderful Birthday! tapi kena skiplah uncle punya cake yang tak semenggah tu yer?? and to Ms. Nadia, thank you for supporting MyKuihStory..

I don’t know how to describe it – perhaps a little bit like chipsmore cookies + the chocolate coating. Something like your ‘first crush’…. ‘SWEET!’
1. 125g butter
2. 50g caster sugar
3. 1tbsp condensed milk
4. 1tsp vanilla essence
5. 185g plain flour
6. 1tsp baking powder
7. 60g dark chocolate, finely chopped
1. 150g dark chocolate, crushed
2. 30g vegetable shortening
Take approximately one tablespoons of the mixture and form into fat fingers. Place well apart on the tray that you already greased it with butter. Bake for about 15 – 20 minutes or until lightly golden.
Leave for 5 minutes then cool on a ‘redai’. Sorry guys, aku tak ingat apa org panggil this ‘redai’ in English. Wire rack perhaps. Haha. (The results for not being in the job market for quite some times kan?)
For Coating, melt the chocolate and vegetable shortening in a small bowl place over a pan of simmering water. Stirring occasionally, until the chocolate dissolve and become smooth. Then sppon the chocolate over so that it covers the biscuits completely
