İndonesian mix vegetables cook in coconut milk / Resep Sayur Lodeh

Resep dalam Bhs İndonesia ada di bagian bawah.

Selam everybody...... Merhaba from Turkey.

Today post is my childhood meal. Me and siblings grew up with this dish. My mom or my grandmother usually cooked this for us. İt's mix vegetable (curry-look alike) cook in coconut milk. Most often tofu or tempeh also mixed in it. And if we have enough money (at that time) to buy shrimps, my mom or grandma also putted some small shrimp in it.

This Called sayur lodeh ( or in Javanese language calls Jangan Lodeh). Javanese curry-like dish, content with various vegetables, like eggplant, chayote, zucchini, young green jackfruit, bamboo shoot, yardlong bean, green bean, corn and so on. Just any left over vegetable you have in your fridge can be added. 
And for protein addition we add some tofu, tempeh or shrimp.
İt is so simple and cheap. That the reason why this was most repeatable menu in our house during my childhood.

We eat this with plain steamed rice, adding sambal terasi is a must. Together with fried protein - like fish or chicken- as side dish, this is the most humble and so traditional of Indonesian food. And forget to mention it's vegan and healthy.

Selam everybody. Merhaba from Türkey.

İt's been a while İ didn't post any butter cake since my last Chocolate marble butter cake. No other reason except because we don't really like eating butter cake except for weekend only. Or if İ had guest came to our house.

Husband prefer to have something light for after dinner dessert or just light cake/ snack accompany us during tea time.

And when one cooking group İ just joined in Instagram has theme for this week; marble cake. So voalla.... İ have a reason to rebake my childhood fave cake; butter cake.

At first İ wanted to make marble swiss roll but my kid out of sudden asking me to make A cake. She said boring with roll cake 😘😘😘😘 Aahh...ah..kido! She can request now..😊


Adana Kebab. Best and authentic recipe make it at home!

Selam..... Merhaba from Turkiye...

Adana kebab is hand-minced meat kebab, mounted on a wide long skewer then grilled (mangal) over charcoal. This kebab mostly has spicy distinguish taste due to addition of a lot of spicy Urfa biber / isot biber
Urfa biber is a dried Turkish chili pepper (type of Capsicum annuum cultivatedorigin from Urfa (Şanlıurfa- one province in southeast Turkey) 

This kebab named after the city where this famous kebab came from - Adana.
Adana is 6th big city on population (2016) in Turkey (south).

Urfa biber / isot biber

There is also similar to this kebab named Urfa kebabı ( from Şanlıurfa) or people calls haşhaş kebabı which is less spicy than Adana kebab.

But İ assure you those kebabs are extremely delicious and once you eat it you won't forget the taste and you will ask more. 😋

Even the kebabs from Adana city (far away to south Anatolia), no need to worry if you visit Turkey (Istanbul or other city) you'll find this Adana kebab seller everywhere almost in each city. But still-of course-you must visit Adana to taste real bud of adana kebab 😊

Laz böreği / Turkish Custard Pastry Dessert

Selam . Merhaba from Türkey.

Börek’ is usually savory, filled with meat or cheese or even vegetables. 
But my today post is one of Turkish dessert called ‘Laz böreği’   (LAHZ’ buer-EY’-ee)
İt’s not savory borek that commonly known.

İt's a sweet dessert, made from layers of phyllo dough ( Türk; baklavalık yufka) and a filled with delish creamy vanilla custard. 
The best way to describe ‘Laz böreği’ is like a baklava filled with rich vanilla custard instead of pistachio or nuts.

Laz’ is the nickname in Turkish given to people from Black sea region - where this dessert come from

What makes this dessert really unique is its secret ingredient – black pepper! ‘Laz böreği’ made the traditional way, has generous amounts of black pepper added to the custard.
But for my version İ added small pinch of nutmeg powder also to give richness to the custard, you can skip that or try my version.

The recipe is for 30 x 40 cm baking tray, fit with baklava phyllo size. But İf you have small family member you can half the recipe and cut phyllo in half. So you will need 15 x 20 cm baking tray.
This dessert best consume while still fresh and crunchy so you don't want too many left over.

When İ was single, even İ lived alone İ tried to cook for my self when İ wasn't too tired from work. Or İ cooked mostly at weekend together with my friends.

And early time I married my husband, İ spent most of my time in kitchen.
Experimented and tried some new recipes İ never cooked before. More over İ should learn how to cook Turkish food for my husband. So kitchen is my new office after İ got married.

Then there come new phase in my life when İ had my baby. İ couldn't stay in my kitchen as much as before.

Busy in kitchen still my biggest yearning. So as my kid getting bigger, İ try to be busy trial and error for new recipe in the kitchen ( İ finally succeed bake macarons! ... yay! 😄) 
But still İ need to lessen my time in kitchen cause my kid need more attention and more my present. 

Then İ finally manage having fun in kitchen yet still can play with my kid. İ sometimes bring her to the kitchen to help me - of course an easy part for her 😍
You can see some pictures post of her during makes cake or cookies with me 😊

İndonesian shrimp cake "dragon feet". Freezer friendly (Kaki Naga Udang)

Resep dalam bhs İndonesia ada dibagian bawah.

Selam everybody.....Merhaba from Turkey.

Indonesian cuisine often demonstrates complex flavour, acquired from certain ingredients and bumbu spices mixture. Indonesian dishes have rich flavours; most often described as gurih (savory which equate to umami) and pedas (hot and spicy), and also combination of basic tastes such as manis (sweet), asin (salty), asam (sour) and pahit (bitter). 
Seven main Indonesian cooking methods are goreng (frying), bakar (roasting) or panggang (grilling), tumis (sautéing), sangrai (roasted), rebus (boiling) and kukus (steaming).

Throughout it's history, İndonesian has been involved in trade due to its location and natural resources. Additionally İndonesian indigenous techniques and ingredient were influenced by İndia, middle eastern, China, even Europe.

And as archipelago country with the longest coastline on earth İndonesia has countless type of fish and seafood as protein source beside poultry and meat.

And my today post is one of everybody's favorite and any kids will love it, call "kaki naga". "Kaki naga" literally means dragon feet 😊 . Don't ask me why we call this food dragon feet.. İ don't think it's looking like dragon feet either.

Anyway, this "kaki naga" mostly using minced fish as main ingredient, sometime combine with chicken or shrimp as well. But today İ am going to share shrimp version of "kaki naga" / dragon feet. İ combine with chicken meat to ease the sharp of shrimp taste and also to add texture of final product because when İ use whole shrimp, sometimes it end up with more runny batter. 

So.. if you ready to try new cuisine for your family.. note this recipe down. Believe me your kids would love it too! 😏
And more...it's freezer friendly and can be your another idea for your kid's or your family lunch box!

Selam everybody....Merhaba.

Brown sugar is a sucrose sugar product with a distinctive brown color due to the presence of molasses. Brown sugar is often produced by adding sugarcane molasses to completely refined white sugar crystals to more carefully control the ratio of molasses to sugar crystals and to reduce manufacturing costs.
In general, the lighter the brown sugar, the more delicate the flavor. Very dark or old-fashioned brown sugar has a more intense molasses flavor.

And do you know that you can make this brown sugar at home.. as easy as flip your palm.. and quicker than you go to market! 😏

Lavender Macarons with honey lavender white chocolate filling

Selam everybody. Merhaba from Turkiye.

Some of you may doesn't like macarons-even İ doubt it 😖. And İ believe many of you loovvveee macarons or even addicted to it.

Me; İ am addicted too ... but more on baking them. İ like macarons so much of course but İ try to limit my self to eat sweet things too often or too much.

#Strawberry Labneh Cheese Souffle Cake with Strawberry compote

Selam everybody. Merhaba from Turkey.

İf you are my regular reader you should probably familiar with my labneh cheese recipe. You may already know (or tried-maybe) my latest Labneh souffle cheesecake with spicy warm honey fig.
What about my fave dessert ever; Three tone Labneh "Cheese" Chocolate mousse . Or simply delicious Yogurt "Cheese" Souffle Cake
Well yes..İ am using labneh a lot daily not even for dessert but also for soup and other cooks.

What is labneh cheese? it's yogurt that has been strained to remove its whey, resulting in a thicker consistency than unstrained yogurt. Due to the straining process to remove excess whey, even non-fat varieties of strained yogurt are much thicker, richer, and creamier than yogurts that have not been strained.

Fresh labneh, made from yogurt with live or active cultures are a very healthy food that contain probiotics, that enhance the immune system, lower cholesterol, aid in digestion, protect against constipation, protect against diarrhea, improve lactose digestibility.
Labneh is like yogurt is an excellent source of protein, casein, whey, beneficial fats, carbohydrates, as well as vitimins and minerals (B12, Calcium, Phosphorus and Riboflavin.) Labneh has less lactose and sugar than regular yogurt.
