// THANKS for kind words, comments that build, supportive views and all. Actually by sharing, I am more motivated. Yes, I feel good having shared a recipe or two and my limited experience in this.
// For those who are inspired and got excited over cooking, I am glad for that.
// You all are welcome to share your own tips/recipes and whatnots so we can all benefit. I am sure others can cook better than I do or have more recipes to drool for.
From my observation (based on the comments), every recipe has been tried except for CHICKEN WINGS. With this avian-flu thing around recently, I understand the reluctance to even come close to chicken at pasar. And for babyfood, majority likes APPLESAUCE. APPLESAUCE was actually the starting point of my journey into this babyfood cooking.
Anyway, like I say, mdh and me have a simple life, meals and cooking included. For example, last Saturday, we had simple meals for breakfast – SQUID FRITTERS, FRIED DRIED_NOODLES and TELUR PUYUH REBUS (kakak’s favourite).
FRIED FRIED-NOODLES – you can buy dried noodles yang macam mee maggi tu, minus the perasa. Just celurkan until a bit soft. Then boleh goreng macam biasa. Fimiliar dengan mi goreng indomee? Mdh commented the one I prepared last weekend, rasanya sebijik cam tu.
I am sharing one more easy-peasy recipe, SQUID FRITTERS. This is based on Kylie Kwong’s recipe.
Sotong – bersihkan, basuh, potong in anyway you like. To reduce letupan masa masak nanti, toskan properly.
- Tumbuk garam kasar dengan lada hitam sampai hancur.
- Campurkan dengan tepung jagung. Gaul rata.
- Gaulkan sotong dengan tepung.
- Kibas-kibaskan sebelum digoreng
- Goreng sehingga keemasan
- Sedap dimakan panas!
(Kalau tengok gambar yang ummi post tu, nampak cam kuning kan. Ummi tambah kunyit skit).
Mdh tak suka kalau sotong potong kecik. Dia suka besar2 tapi letupannya juga besar! Pernah dulu masa tgh goreng tu minyak terpercik, kena kat leher Ummi. Esoknya pegi kerja, masa kat tempat sembahyang, kawan2 senyum simpul. ‘Kau ‘on’ ke semalam?’ Laaa… diorang ingatkan love bite! Ummi kata, ‘a ah, memang on, sotong yang buat love bite tu’.
Oh, someone (I think it was mama-afif) asked abt rosemary. Nak cerita susah skit, ni gambo dia.. i also used this in making mashed-potato. And on the right is ground-cinnamon which i used in APPLESAUCE
