Apple Cinnamon Spring Roll

Apple Cinnamon Spring Roll-2

Artikel dalam Bahasa Indonesia, klik di sini :)

Last weekend I noticed there were couple of wrinkled apples in the fridge. At first, i wanted to make apple pie out of it. But, since there is a spring roll challenge at my joined-cooking group, i thought.. hey why don’t you use it as the spring roll’s filling. So i bought the egg-based spring roll wrapper and went for it.

Let’s check it out ^^

Sambal Pencok Puteh

Artikel dalam Bahasa Indonesia, klik di sini :)

Another sambal recipe that becomes my family’s favorite dish, Sambal Pencok Puteh. Unlike usual sambal that has red color, this sambal is white (puteh=putih=white). To add another differences, it is more liquify and poured onto mashed-steamed stuffs, like egg, eggplant, tempe, or tofu. Yes, steamed, not fried. Interesting, isn’t it ? ^^ And it is a finger-licking good and rice-consuming for sure. So, be prepared 😉

Yes, i finally made bread!! ^_^

To be honest, this is not my first. I had made bread several times before. The reason i haven’t shared any bread making experience until now it because.. in the past i always forgot to take a picture of them 😛

A friend posted a recipe video at Facebook. The recipe looks easy and the bread looks soo yummy that makes me eager to try, even though i was a bit sick (well, still am actually 😀 ). Unfortunately,  i can’t find the video anymore. So, i’ll try my best to write the steps as clear as i can 🙂

Here we go ^^

Homemade Martabak (Arabic Stuffed Pancake)

Martabak is one of Arabic’s (or maybe Indian’s) dish that is very famous here. We have it as street food. The original martabak (one that is sold) is made with special thin and very elastic layer. They make it by  turning and throwing the dough at the same time, like this man doing from 0:25

Well, this site won’t be named Cooking4Dummy if i’m doing that, right ? 😀 Instead, i use spring roll wrappers to substitute. Not dumpling wrappers though, cause they are a bit thicker. And for the seasoning, i use Gulai (red curry) instant seasoning. So, it is as easy as you can imagine 😉

Let’s do it!

Nasi Goreng (Indonesian Fried Rice)

Nasi Goreng-1 copy

Artikel dalam Bahasa Indonesia, klik di sini :)

Nasi goreng or fried rice is really a common food here in Indonesia. You can find it everywhere, as street food or 5-stars restaurant cuisine. And though it is one of my favorite dish, i found it too simple that i thought it is a trivial recipe. Not until i found out that Nasi Goreng is World’s 2nd most delicious food according to CNN. I’m like.. really ? Well, i mean.. it is REALLY really delicious for me.. but i’m so surprise to find out that is what others’ thought too 😀

So, in order to write this, i intentionally scaled up my ingredients. It’s hard, you know. Since i use to make this from scraps, meaning what is left and there. This is my best effort for it lol.

Tempe Bacem

Artikel dalam Bahasa Indonesia, klik di sini :)

It’s too quiet here for too long. My bad. I both was busy and lost my spirit to go to kitchen. Well, am trying to get back on track, now. Starting with a small step, this simple yet delicious mom’s recipe, Tempe Bacem. I don’t know what to call it in English, please tell me on the comment below if you happen to know. Thank you :*

Anyway, if you haven’t met tempe before, it is a food product from fermented soybeans, that has cake-like form. It is originated from Indonesia, my country (yeeey ^_^). I love its spongy-crunchy texture.

Bacem itself actually means marinate or soak a food in sugar and salt water, so the food will last longer. In javanese, we do bacem with palm sugar. So, you will expect its taste should be sweet, but not candy sweet.
