where did they go???? :(

when weekend comes i find myself craving to cook and try out new dishes. lama gile wehh tak buat benda2 ni sume. so i was browsing thru my laptop for all the pics of the food i cooked - saje je la nak tgk which ones i haven't upload in this blog. usually i saved them in one folder entitled 'daily cooks'. and guess what - i couldnt find it!!!! waaaaaaaaaarghhhhhh sgt stress okkk..kalau i hilang sume gmbr2 tu mcm sedih gilee..everytime i cook or try out new recipes i definitely would snap a picture of it and save it for blogging. i wonder where did i put that folder???:( :( :(

anyhow, i stumbled upon these few pics of some dishes i tried out 3 months back. tak menyempat2 nak upload dlm blog back then. alang2 now i tgh free so i'll just update them here k.

appetizer: bruschetta with beef and tomato filling.


1 piece of readymate baguette (i bought it @ delifrance. mana2 bakery pun ada)
minced beef - 200g
3 tomatoes - diced
dried herbs: oregano, basil, parsley
olive oil
tomato puree - 1 small can
cheddar cheese - cut into thin strips (boleh pakai other types of cheese based on personal preference)
olive oil to sautee
bombay onions - diced finely
2 cloves garlic - crushed

sautee chopped onions and garlic in olive oil until fragrant
add in minced beef (i usually rebus dulu minced beef tu spy senang and cepat masak)
add in tomato puree and diced tomato
add black pepper and dried herbs
kacau smpai sebati
slice the baguettes obliquely - spread some butter/margerine on top each slice
spread the bruschetta filling on the cut slices of baguettes evenly
put the thinly sliced cheddar cheese
bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the cheese melt

main course: grilled chicken (boleh tak i malas nak letak recipe grilled chicken ni? sume org pun tau kot. main campak2 je anything u like then bakar je dlm oven - gerenti jadi punye ;) hehee)

briyani rice with cucumber raita.

recipe briyani rice (version yg super simple cuz i used ready made briyani powder je :P).

1 packet of briyani herb - mix with 2 spoonful of water
minyak sapi
bawang besar - dadu
serai dititik - 3 batang
pewarna oren/kuning
gajus- goreng untuk hiasan
daun ketumbar utk hiasan
2 cawan susu segar
beras basmathi - dicuci dan toskan

tumis rempah briyani dgn minyak sapi hingga garing/naik bau
masukkan serai dan bawang besar -tumis hingga naik bau
masukkan susu segar dan air then masukkan beras
masukkan sedikit daun ketumbar utk bau
masak sehingga beras kembang
lastly hiaskan dgn gajus , bawang goreng & daun ketumbar


cucumber raita (which translates into acar timun dgn yogurt :) )

sebiji timun - finely diced (buang the core and biji timun tu)
carrots - finely diced
1 small container fresh yogurt (i used dutch lady plain yoghurt)
sugar and salt to taste
fresh mint - finely chopped

mixed all ingredients together
chill in the fridge before serving

dessert: mango panna cotta

resipi ni dpt dr blog Kak Ummi kuantan. senang gile nak buat and sgt sedap ok. just that when i made it i terlebih letak gelatin kot, so my milk layer tu keras sikit. otherwise i rase mesti dah perfect gile dah. this dessert is supposed to be gooey in consistency. Kak ummi, mntak izin copy & paste recipe ek..thanks :)

7 grm gelatin (1 packet) + 3 tbsp of water
2 ½ cups full cream milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 ripe mango – pureed in a blender

Mix the gelatin and water together and set it aside to bloom.
Put the milk and sugar in a saucepan, cook over low medium heat until bubbles form around the edges of the saucepan.
Remove from heat and add in the vanilla and stir in the gelatin. Stir until the gelatin dissolved.
Pour the mixture into six ramekins or cups. pour in the pureed mango over the milk layer.
chill in the fridge before serving.

esok nak masak ape plak ek? Thai food probably?
