Eggless Condensed Milk Chocolate Cake...♥

Image
This is one cake I would recommend everyone to try on. It's so easy to prepare and the result is definitely satisfying. I never make the choc ganache as we had the cake with Hershey's Chocolate and Strawberry syrup. Liked the crusty top and edge :)
A bookmarked recipe from Nithi's space. Feel free to drop by her awesome and mouthwatering blog. Her food(o)graphy speaks more! Thanks Nithi for sharing this yummy recipe and congratulations on your blog's 3rd Anniversary :) 
Was too lazy to get ready my KA, thus I just used a wooden spatula to mix the batter. Stir in one direction only ;)

Image
A quick glance at the my dish today...a simple Canned Mackerel Sambal & Potato Sambal. I was rushing for dinner last night and prepared this for my kids.

They had it with some parathas.

You may also use the canned sardine, my favourite is always Ayam Brand Mackerel :)

Corn Custard Pudding / Puding Kastad Jagung...♥

Image
A beautiful Monday wishes to all of you. I'm taking you straight to the dessert today as I've got some mission to be accomplished here. Lol, it's none other than the novels I've been hooked to lately.

I love puddings anytime...whether it's soft and creamy or the tender types. Can't really remember when I last made this Corn Custard Pudding. I craved for it, so made it right away as I had a can of Cream Style Sweet Corn available on my shelf.

Vegetable Fritters...♥

Fritters are one of my favourite teatime snacks! Anchovy fritters and banana fritters are very common in my home. This time I made Vegetable Fritters using cabbage and carrot :)

Dipped in chilli sauce and a cuppa tea next to you...simply gracious!!!

A very quick one, do try it!

In a bowl, mix together plain flour, baking powder and salt.Then add water gradually and stir. The batter should not be too watery. Mix in the shredded cabbage, carrot, onion and curry leaves. Stir evenly. Heat oil over medium flame. Spoon the batter into oil and deep fry until cooked or they turn golden brown. Dish out on a paper towel. Serve! :)

 I couldn't wait to enjoy these fritters...a quickie photo shoot! Hahaha...







Soy Made Chicken Rendang...♥

Image
It's 1st semester school break this week...Rishie is home, and Ashika is just so happy that her only brother is around to play with her. She'd always whine when Rishie gets down from the car to school every morning. Whether she likes him to be home or not, for sure she liked to fight with him. Hehehe kids...*sigh!

You may be seeing some vegan style dishes on my site lately. That's because I'm being one for 1 month and successfully finished 2 weeks now. I'd still prefer my dishes to be a little spicy...:)

Never liked soy made chicken, but this particular brand at Tesco changed my perception. It is Greenfarm's Crispy G. So good to munch on it right after deep fried. Suggest this dish for vegans. Actually anyone can have it. Try with soy made lamb chunks too.

Sticky Cheesy Corn Flakes...♥

Image
Firstly, I would like to say Hello and welcome my new readers, visitors and bloggers to my space. Thank you for your precious views under every post of mine. Comments are the real boost for a blogger like me to keep going, though I don't blog regularly :)

Now, would you like a quick snack for tea time or while glued to novels or your favourite shows on TV? Then, try this simple Sticky Cheesy Corn Flakes.

The addition of mozarella cheese happened after my son requested. I was about to place the tray in the oven and he quickly suggested to add some cheese. Not sure what made him to think of that! "Why Not!" was my reply to him. Thus the name has been changed...

For the recipe, I referred and made few adjustments to my previous Honey Corn Flakes.

STICKY CHEESY CORN FLAKES 
Ingredients :~
125 gm butter 1/2 cup sugar5 tbsp honey 3 tbsps chilli sauce1 cup mixed nuts ( I used store bought, ready to eat nuts cocktail) 6 cups original corn flakes ( I used Kellogg's)shredded …

Potato Puffs...♥

Image
An evening, on a beautiful chilly weather...a treat at our very own gazebo, Potato Puffs.
Both Rishie and Ashika were so excited that Amma finally made them some evening snacks :)
They waited impatiently as I get over with the photo shoot, and we enjoyed the evening together having these potato puffs served with kiwi and mango yoghurt drinks :)

By the way, the potato filling was prepared by my Mom (a vegan). Instead of having it with rice, I used them as filling for my puffs. It's time to make use of my Kawan Puff Pastry sheets before they end their life! LOL!

Hello everyone! Seeing you all again in the month of March! My finger is finally free from the wire yesterday! Right now, it's stilll covered with gauze, gotto leave it dry for another 2 days.

I have to do my own physio try to bend the finger slowly. The swelling and the fracture will take 3-6 months time to heal, as per my orthopedic :)
