Normally I will cook french onion lamb shanks. Yesterday I decided to be creative by cooking curry lamb shanks. I tend to cook more lamb shanks during winter and I make them in my slow cooker. Since Matthew dislikes spicy curry, I omitted all the chillies when I made the curry paste for this dish. Here is the recipe.
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.
Rendang is a spicy Malay meat dish. It is rich in spices. I will make a non-spicy version for the sake of my children who can’t take spicy food. If you want it to be spicy, you just have to add dry chillies. Here is the recipe for the rendang:

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.
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.
