Nasi Hujan Panas.... why only 3 colours?

Good Day Peeps !!! While cooking this rice my Alya asked me this question why only 3 colours why we can't put more colours like rainbow? I answered her...."because these are the colours that peope usually use and furthermore I have only these 3 colours"...well frankly speaking I didn't know how to answer her actually but why not maybe next time I'll put more colours then it can be Rainbow Rice instead of Nasi Hujan Panas...phewwwww luckily she did not ask me why named it "Nasi Hujan Panas" kekekekee.... then I should start googling for the answer ......as for now do enjoy the "Nasi Hujan Panas" :)

I served the rice with Ayam Masak merah, Mix Vegt & Papadom...

Spicy Shrimp and Spaghetti Aglio Olio.... Delizioso.. errr....deliziosa ????

A common question asked by me during the weekends...
Q : People .... what would like to have for lunch? Rice...or something else..(usually...pasta/spaghetti/noodle)?
A common answer
A:  Huh rice? No...No...Rice ...... pasta...pasta.../spaghetti..../noodle..Yes :)

So I've made this Spicy Shrimp and Spahetti Aglio Olio...... actually was thinking to make seafood aglio olio but couldn't get mussel in the market today :(


 The recipe was taken from foodnetwork here is the recipe I cut & paste the recipe :-

Ingredients


Spicy Shrimp:....I've made 1/2 from the recipe.

2 pounds jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 lemon, juiced
1 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley (a couple of handfuls) .... I used dried mixed herbs about 1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes ....I used chilli flakes
4 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
 Coarse salt, about 1 teaspoon

2 tablespoons (a couple of generous drizzles) extra-virgin olive oil

Aglio Olio:

1/4 cup (4 turns around the pan in a light stream) extra-virgin olive oil
1 (2-ounce) tin anchovy fillets ...I substituted with anchovy cube
6 to 8 large cloves garlic, crushed and minced
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley, a couple of handfuls
Coarse salt
1 pound spaghetti (I used angel hair) , cooked to al dente
Tomato and Onion Salad, as an accompaniment
Crusty bread, as an accompaniment ...I've made garlic bread

Directions
Combine shrimp with next 6 ingredients and toss to coat shrimp evenly.
Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium high heat, then add half of the shrimp. Cook shrimp 3 minutes until pink and just firm. Remove shrimp to a warm platter and repeat process with remaining shrimp.

Return pan to heat and reduce heat to medium low. Add 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil. Add anchovies, garlic, and pepper flakes to oil. Break up anchovies with a wooden spoon until they melt away into the oil and garlic mixture.

Toss spaghetti in the pan with parsley and the garlic oil, then season with a little coarse salt, to your taste. Top servings of garlic and oil spaghetti with spicy shrimp and serve with Tomato and Onion Salad and Crusty Bread.

Cook's Notes: Prepare the shrimp while the pasta is cooking.

Prep your garlic and parsley for aglio olio and set them, as well as drained pasta and remaining ingredients all within arm's reach of your stove top.

The aroma will be intense! Cooked anchovies have a salted-nutty (rather than fishy) taste that compliments the garlic as it sweetens and softens.

Tomato and Onion Salad:

5 medium plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise, gently seeded, and thinly sliced
1 small white skinned onion, peeled, halved lengthwise, and thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley (a couple of handfuls)
A generous drizzle extra-virgin olive oil, about 2 tablespoons
Coarse salt and black pepper

Crusty Bread, as an accompaniment

Toss the tomatoes and onions with the chopped parsley, oil, salt, and pepper. Let stand while you prepare dinner, about 20 minutes. Re-toss and serve salad with crusty bread for mopping up juices and oil.

Yield: 4 servings

 Methods :-

FOR DOUGH :-
Stir together yeast and warm water let it stand for 5 minutes or till bubbled/foamy.
Combine all other ingredients except for butter then add in the yeast mixture...stir until mixture is well blended and form a dough.
Add in butter and continue to knead until smooth and elastic (about 20 minutes)
Place dough in a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place for 40 minutes or until doubled in bulk.


BREADMAKER method : Place all the ingredients in the Breadmaker. Select the dough function and ON. Wait until the breadmaker finish it's job takes about 1 1/2 hour depends on the type of the Breadmaker.

When the dough has doubled in size punch it down. Place onto a lightly floured surface.

INGREDIENTS for filling :-

1 1/2 Tablespoon butter ...melt
3 Tablespoon brown sugar *
1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon *(*combine ingredients marked * in a bowl.Stir to combine).
1/2 cup raisins

In a medium-sized bowl place the brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Set aside.
Roll the dough into a square.
Brush with the melted butter.
Sprinkle the filling evenly over the rolled out dough and top with raisins.
Carefully roll the dough into a log and pinch the edges to seal. Slice the log (roll) into ten-sized pieces. Arrange a piece of the dough pieces paper cup sized 4 inch.
Let dough rise again in a warm place for about 45 minutes. 
Bake in the preheated oven at 180C for 25 minutes.
Brush the bread with butter once it come out from the oven.

For the SAUSAGE BUNS

Blanched the sausages...let it cool.
Cut and divide the dough into 10 portions depends on you....as for me I've made mini buns so I cut each sausage into 2.
Roll each piece into a long thick place a piece sausage and roll to seal the sausage like wrapping up.
Place in greased tray and let to rest for about 45 minutes.
Bake in preheated oven at 180C for 25 mins.

Cinnamon roll......my favourite :)

Hi Peeps! It's late and I'm still awake..........actually I'm waiting for another batch of the bread to finish baking with sambal ikan bilis as the filing requested by Alya. She loves savoury buns but Mom on the other side love sweet buns. I love this cinnamon roll recipe...the bread is soft although added wholemeal flour to it. 

The recipe from Mat Gebu

It's late my bread is ready...so I just copy & paste from his blog :))))

BAHAN-BAHANNYA :-)
200 gram tepung roti (high protein flour)
50 gram tepung whole meal
50 gram gula halus @ gula kastor
1/2 camca teh garam halus
10 g susu tepung (mat guna susu "everyday")
1/4 camca teh bread improver
1/4 camca teh bread softerner
30 g telur (pecahkan 1 biji, kacau sedikit dan timbang)
6 gram instant yeast
20 g lemak sayur (shortening)
125 ml air suam (kalau guna Breadmaker guna air biasa)
5 biji ceri merah, dikerat dua setiap biji, untuk hiasan

BAHAN TABUR :-)
1 1/2 camca besar mentega, dicairkan
3 camca besar gula perang (brown sugar)*
1/3 camca teh serbuk kulit kayu manis*(*disatukan dan gaul rata2)
1/2 cawan kismis,

 


CARA MEMBUATNYA :-)
  1. UNTUK DOH :- Larutkan yis dalam air suam, biar berbuih. Satukan semua bahan lain kecuali mentega, masukkan bancuhan yis dan gaul rata hingga menjadi doh. Tambah mentega dan terus menguli hingga mendapat doh yang kenyal dan anjal (kurang lebih 20 minit). Bulat2kan doh, letak dalam bekas dan balut dengan plastik bersih, biarkan 45 minit hingga naik. KAEDAH LAIN :- Satukan semua bahan2 untuk doh dalam breadmaker, pilih setting untuk "DOH" dan tekan "ON", tunggu hingga siap (selalunya BM mengambil masa 30 minit menguli dan 1 jam memerap, ikut jenis BM masing2).
  2. UNTUK CINNAMON ROLL :- Tabur tepung pada meja kerja, keluarkan doh, tumbuk untuk membuang udara. Tekan2 dan canai sehingga menjadi 4 persegi (tabur sedikit tepung jika melekat). Sapu dengan mentega cair, tabur dengan gula perang+serbuk kayu manis tadi rata2. Akhir sekali ratakan kismis. Gulung seperti swissroll, gulung ketat2. Kerat dengan pisau tajam kepada 10 bahagian sama besar.
  3. Isi setiap potongan dalam paper cup bersaiz 4 inci, tekan sedikit biar leper dan hias dengan sepotong ceri merah. Buat hingga siap dan perap 45 minit. Sapu telur (baki dari 30 gram tadi) rata2 dan bakar dalam oven yang telah dipanaskan pada suhu 180C selama 25 minit. Keluarkan dari oven dan sapu dengan baki mentega cair. Biarkan sejuk dan boleh hidangkan.... Selamat mencuba..

Pizza everyone's favourite.......Oh what a day !!!!

Alya has been asking me to do pizza since last week. Well today I decided to make pepperoni pizza for dinner. The other half was attending a wedding with the girls so I was left with the twins. After I ON the breadmaker  the three of us went out to buy toppings for the pizza and also to buy Ultraman DVD for Ahmad Dani. When we left the sun was shining so bright so I did not bring in the clothes.I couldn't find the parking nearby the supermarket so I have to park the car a bit far. First we went to buy the DVD (or otherwise you can't peacefully do the shopping !) I keep on looking at the watch as I was doing the shopping I need to go back within 1 1/2 hr (The dough will be ready by then). Guess what.? the most important ingredients was out of stock so I bought sausages instead. As we were about to exit the supermarket the rain was pouring so heavily....oh NO! and there was no way the three of us were able to get in the car without soaking. After about 1/2 hour the rain was finally stopped...Thank God. When we reached home, the other half was already back with the girls......the clothes were all wet and I couldn't care ...went straight to the kitchen.take out the dough, preparing for the toppings and cook the pizzas.


The pizzas were ready at 6p.m we had our dinner,cleaned the kitchen...and now I have to pack my clothes as I am catching the train tonight for work......hope the other half can cope with the kids..all the best to him:)))

The recipe for the dough is here .
as for the sauce I used ready made pasta sauce.

The above pictures was our pizza...the toppings were sliced meatballs, (boiled1st) sausages, (boiled 1st) capsicum and button mushroom.
Whereas the children's pizza was this one..........the toppings were, sausages, meatballs, crab sticks and mushrooms....and of course they assemled it themselves :))))
