Nasi Kebuli/Kebuli Rice

Kebuli Rice

I was craving for Nasi Kebuli, the oldest son and my hubby aren´t fans of Lamb. Anyway, I tried to cook it in rice cooker!. I´m quite surprised, they like it, too!!. Thanks to my dear friend, Helwah, who gives me tips how to cook it. She used to add milk instead of coconut milk into Nasi Kebuli.

Rollade Tahu


Rollade is commonly made from meat. Today, I cook tofu rollade to join Cooking together (Masak Bareng Yuuk) arranged by Deetha, Ayin, Shinta with the theme: Rollade Tahu. The rollade is wrapped in Kohlrabi leaves that I used to substitute Melinjo leaves for Sayur Asem. Normally, people just discard the leaves, but I try to collect them and hopefully, someone will think that I have rabbits to feed ^_^. It´s edible and taste just like Melinjo Leaves!

Cheese Orange Cake

Yesterday, I didn´t have enough time to make Black Forest for my friend birthday. I searched another cake which is quite simple and not too much decoration. After blog walking, I decided to use Shinta´s recipe with a bit modification as usual :). Although my cake decoration doesn´t look neatly, the cake is yuuuummmmy. Thank you shinta!

Candil/Sweet Potato in coconut milk & Choco Pudding in Horns

When I was a kid, I love Candil and Kolak Pisang (sweet plaintains in coconut milk) for Iftar in Ramadhan-a month of obligatory daily fasting in Islam. In Ramadhan, our meal habits get different, without intake start from dawn and end with sunset. Dr. Haffejee suggest that in view of long hours fasting we should comsump slow digesting foods including fibre containing foods rather than fast digesting foods ( read more here).

In my home country, I used to buy Candil for Iftar as an appetizer or dessert. Since I´ve been here, I try to make by my own. Sweet Potato or Ubi Jalar is a good dietary fibre, source of vitamin A, B6, C and minerals. It can be prepared in variety of delicious dishes, as a main dish or as a dessert, cooked savoury or sweet. I prefer the sweet one :).
This is my entry for Joy from Fasting to Feasting hosted by Kitchenflavours´ Lubna Karim and Yasmeen.
