♥...Ayam Seri Harum / Fragrant Chicken...♥

Image
Synonym to the title, this chicken dish is truly a fragrant and aromatic one. Thanks a ton to Kak Nor of Secubitgaram for this wonderful recipe...you made my day kak! Was scratching my head on what to cook today as it's been raining since morning. I felt like having something really spicy too...like curry mee! Slurrpppppppp...unfortunately not!
Having every ingredient as required in the recipe, I finalized on this chicken for today's menu. As for the kaffir lime leaf, I used only one piece, coz my tummy usually don't feel good if I have any food with the leaf...not sure why though.
I added bird's eye chillis to make the gravy more spicier.
Kak Nor, this recipe is sure a keeper for me! I loved it...so do my kids! We had it with plain rice and raita. Really it's so delicious..2 thumbs up!!!
Okey, let's check out the yummy recipe.

Of late, I've been receiving lots of comments complimenting my easy to-do recipes. Many readers of mine thanked me for posting easy peasy dishes, which helped them alot in cooking despite their busiest schedule. Some even asked how do I come up with easy recipes. Some say I helped to boost their interest in cooking.
OWH WOW!!! Really, am so happy to hear these...
My heartfelt thank you for all your encouragements. Yes, I prefer preparing easiest yet delicious dishes for my family. I'd always think of a dish that can be prepared in less time...mind does the job all the time, hehe! I write recipes keeping in mind to serve all level of people. If it helps the newbies who just started cooking, there's no better joy than that. Simply becoz I was a newbie too...
Remember, I do constant trials...with passes and many failures!

♥...Prawn & Quail Egg Sambal and Nasi Lemak...♥

Today, it's prawn & quail egg sambal. Here's the recipe...

♥...Mayonnaise Saucy Chicken...♥

Image
Experiments with frequent trial and errors make good cooks. I'm thriving to be one, so thus the endless learning in cooking field.

This time, I experimented chicken and mayonnaise. Hahahaha, sorry for posting another chicken dish so soon! None can deny my love towards chicken! :)

An idea struck me when I was preparing Hot & Spicy Mayonnaise Prawn Fry recently. The combination of sauces and mayonnaise with fried chicken, did it's magic actually. Prepared specially for the kids, non-spicy

Received good comment and compliments from my son, who is currently my food tester (Hubby away in Canada). Personally, I too liked the creamy chicken. Something different than the usual spiced fried chickens I make. I'm sure this is not the end, as I'll be coming out with another experiment real soon!

For now, sharing with you the first one... simple but a satisfaction for sure, I hope the same with you too! (with crossed fingers) ;)

♥...Quick Tofu Fa with Lychees...♥

Image
Reposting my Quick Tofu Fa, which I've shared with you HERE before. Often sold in pasar malam (night markets), this is one dessert liked by almost everyone. As you know, it's made from soybean. Check WIKI for more info on this mouthwatering dessert...

I used smooth tofu rather than making it as per actual procedure. Hehehe...it's called the lazy version of mine...but a quick one though! Of course it don't taste as the authentic tofu fa, but it's good enough for me when I crave for it...

This time round, I steamed the smooth tofu, let it cool first and added chilled can lychee syrup and fruits.

Don't forget to drain excessive water from the tofu before adding the sugar syrup. You may sub with any other fruits that you prefer...



QUICK TOFU FA WITH LYCHEES
Steam Smooth Tofu for 10-15 minutes. Drain excessive water emerged from the tofu. Leave the tofu to cool. Scoop few slices gently and fill into individual serving bowl. Add chilled lychee fruits and sugar syrup. …

♥...Sticky Caramel Chicken Drumsticks (Fried Version)...♥

Image
Original recipe says Sticky Caramel Chicken Wings. Since I used drumsticks, the title has been renamed.

To suit my kids' taste buds, I fried the chicken drumsticks before making the sauce. ( Original recipe: Cook chicken in the sauce, covered with lid, leaving the mixture to boil and thickens).

Posted my Mutiarazura in Myresipi.com, this recipe has become a real hit among bloggers and non-bloggers. Finally it hits my kitchen too...

Check out the recipe, with some modification.
