Nasi Uduk

Warning: It’s a long post. At least longer than usual πŸ˜› Nasi Uduk is rice with coconut milk and served with at least 3 different types of side dishes. It’s pretty similar with Nasi Lemak from Malaysia. And Indonesian Yellow Rice (except that this is not yellow). Here you can see I have 5 different side dishes. I can say that this one is pretty complete for Nasi Uduk. Only missing crackers (due too laziness of using too much oil just to make crackers). Unfortunately I can’t really share the complete recipe for this food. The Kering Teri Kacang is from my grandma. She sent it to me all the way from her city (my dad moved far away from his hometown) And the city she lives in, it called Medan, it has the best tiny dried anchovy for this kind of side dish. It’s not easy to get them in another city in Indonesia, even if you can find them, they’re more expensive. It’s very precious for me here in Sweden. I can eat …

Learn From Your Mistakes

You know… I often change some stuffs here and there in most of my recipes. Mostly foods though. Today’s post is about those foods that I’m not entirely satisfy with. But I still want to share them with you, and tell you what’s wrong with them. To some of you, they might look ok but I’m just not happy enough. The first one we’re going to talk about is this Japanese Cheesecake with Blueberry Compote. I’ve made this a while back, when it was still baking in the oven, it looked really good but when I took it out, it started to shrink and form a wrinkle ring around the cake (as you can see in the photo below). The cake it self (without the compote) tasted really nice. Very soft, moist and fluffy and not too sweet (just how I like it). As for the compote, I didn’t take enough time to make it, that’s why it looks grainy (I added a little bit of agar powder). Next time, I’ll take my time to …

Pasta, Chicken and Tomato Salsa

Thanks God it’s friday! It felt like a long week for me since hubby work on a late shift. So we couldn’t spend a lot of time in the evening and have dinner together. Anyway, it has been snowing for few days here. We have enough snow to play pulkaΒ (snow sliding) and hopefully the snow will last until the weekend. It will be my daughter’s first pulka. Excited! What is your favourite activity with the little ones during winter? Do you play out a lot?

soto banjar

Soto Banjar

Soto Banjar is another chicken and vermicelli soup in Indonesia that comes from Kalimantan (Borneo) province. I think every island has their own soto dish. And each soto tastes different. Soto Banjar and Soto Jawa (Javanese chicken noodle soup) are my mum’s two favourite from all soto and made them often. It makes senses though, because my mum is Banjarnese and dad is Javanese πŸ˜€ I’ll try to make a complete Soto Jawa bowl next time, so you can see the difference. Because they’re very different. Actually, there’s also 1 more important thing to complete this bowl, potato cake. But I didn’t make it when I made this. Hopefully I can update a complete bowl soon when I come back from my holiday.

Mie Ayam Ungu (Purple Noodle with Chicken)

I’ve posted Mie Ayam (Noodle with sweet soy sauce chicken) before. But one of my friend inspired me this noodle when she made rainbow noodle for her daughter. And I’ve told you about this before, that I’m not a big fan of rainbow foods. Just because they required so much work. And I’m a lazy cook my self, so, yeah, only managed to make purple noodle πŸ˜€ It’s a short post today since I won’t be sharing any recipes. To make this, you can check my previous Mie ayam, Noodle and Bakso. For the purple noodle, substitute half of the water with beetroot’s juice (from 1 beetroot per noodle recipe). Serve with bok choy, fried onion and chilli suace (sambal).  


Potato Croquettes

A very short post today. This is another proof that I’m a lazy cook. Actually I wanted to make risoles when I made the filling for this croquette. But since I was too lazy to make the wrap, I decided to mash all the potatoes and made them into potato croquettes instead. The filling is exactly the same like risoles filling (without potatoes) you can double the meat too if you like.   Ingredients: 1 kg potatoes, mashed risoles filling 1 egg 2 tbsp all purpose flour breadcrumbs   How to: Divide the potatoes into 6 to 8 equal pieces (or depending on how big you want). Form each piece into a ball, flatten it then place some filling in the middle of the potato. Carefully cover the filling with mashed potato and form into a long cylinder. Set aside. Repeat the process. Let the croquettes rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Prepare flour, egg and breadcrumb for coating. Take 1 potato cylinder and roll onto the flour then the egg then …

chicken banana pizza

Mini Chicken Pizza

I must say that I was a bit surprised when I saw a menu list from local pizzeria here in Sweden for the first time. The one that caught my eyes was one of husband’s favourite pizza. Chicken, banana with bernaise sauce pizza. Please tell me I’m not the only one that didn’t know about those funky toppings. Pretty please… But one day I decided to give it a try (tasted husband’s pizza a little bit) and guess what! Another surprise! I liked it. Not crazy about it, but definitely something is different there. Something good. In Indonesia, bananas are really cheap. There are so many different varieties for different purpose. But I’ve never eaten or found banana in proper food. We only use banana for desserts or sweet snacks. That’s why I was a bit shock when I found banana as one of pizza topping here. And husband said it’s so weird because you can find banana everywhere in Indonesia but only use it for sweets (makes sense I must say :D) And this …

Hainan chicken

Hainan Chicken Rice

I have lots of friends who like to post food photos on their facebook (mostly Indonesian foods) and always success at making me hungry and drooling. And this recipe is one of the result of looking at those food pictures. I’ve been living in Singapore for 6 months before, but I’ve never tried this food even once. And when I saw one of my friend posting this food picture in her facebook, I suddenly crave for it too. I looked so nice and simple. And I knew I have to make it sometime soon. I’m sure I can find this too in Indonesia, but not in my hometown. At least I think so. The recipe only use few simple ingredients. And it is soooo easy to make. I promise. Although the recipe looks very long and complicated, but don’t worry. It worth to try πŸ™‚ It was really nice. I liked it a lot. The broth is nice, clear and light. Not much going on in your mouth. Sometimes less is more… hehehe πŸ˜€   …

Chicken Curry

UPDATE Learn Indonesian ^^ Chicken = ayam Curry = kari Chicken curry = kari ayam Ga kerasa udah seminggu yang lalu Β saya posting resep roti jala. Maaf ya harus nunggu lama.

ayam goreng mentega

Ayam Goreng Mentega (Butter-Fried Chicken)

Ayam = Chicken Goreng = Fried Mentega = Butter   Today we’re cooking ayam goreng mentega or if Β I rough translate it to English is butter fried chicken. Fear not people! I didn’t deep fried the chicken in butter. Just pan fried them. When I made this, I had a little argue with husband (who doesn’t argue with their partner?) so we didn’t talk to each other. While I cooked this food husband was with my daughter playing and watching TV. When the food is done, I told husband food is ready. Just like that πŸ˜› Then when we were eating together, husband said that he liked the chicken and said its nice.. Then after that we’re good again πŸ˜€ I love my husband a lot. He’s very understanding and caring and nice and handsome and sexy πŸ˜‰ Anyway, there are lots of different recipes of this chicken out there. So I decided to do my own version after reading several different recipes. And as usual, I used what I have in my fridge. Easy. …
