Last weekend I was craving for ayam percik. It is a kind of grilled chicken marinated in spices and coconut milk. You eat it with steamed rice and is an easy meal to prepare, especially if you have the spices and an oven (or an air fryer). Here are the ingredients for ayam percik.
I made roti jala yesterday for breakfast. It is a popular Malay snack that is served with curry. Here are the ingredients for roti jala:
350g plain flour
25 g cooking oil
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp salt
200g coconut milk
25 g cooking oil
Place plain flour, cooking oil, egg, turmeric, salt, coconut milk and water in a mixing bowl and blitz it for 2 minutes at speed 4. If you do not have a thermomix, you can use any kitchen food processor.
Next transfer the mixture into a roti jala dispenser bottle which comes with spouts.
Turn on the stove and place a non-stick frying pan over a medium fire. Grease the pan lightly.
Squeeze the roti jala dispenser bottle slightly above the frying pan and moved it in an irregular pattern in a circular motion.
Cook the roti jala on both sides until it is golden brown. Roll them to form a cylinder. It is best to eat them warm with chicken curry.
Over the weekend I decided to make mung bean dessert soup in the Philips All In One Cooker, which is a pressure cooker. It was quick to prepare and I did not need to soak the mung beans to soften the beans when I used the pressure cooker. The whole process only took 20 minutes. Mung bean is known to be a great refreshing detox soup.
Roti Naan ( Naan Bread) is an Indian flatbread. It is a popular bread in Indian restaurants. Traditionally, this bread is cooked in a tandoor which is a hot clay oven. My boys love roti naan, especially the garlic and cumin roti naan with shredded cheese in it. You can make it with egg or without egg if someone is allergic to eggs. Here is a recipe for it.
3 cloves of crushed garlic
1 tbsp of ground cumin
450g of baker’s flour. I use Wallaby Baker’s Flour.
1 1/2 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp salt
Shredded cheese. I used mozzarella cheese
Butter to oil the crepe maker.
Philips all-in-one cooker is a brilliant cooker. It is a pressure cooker and a slow cooker at the same. I have never regretted buying this cooking gadget because when I am running short of time and I would like to enjoy a home-cooked meal I will use the pressure cooker function to cook a hearty meal for myself and my family. It saves time and money.
