If I have inspired anybody i really syukur..many around me and in the office came up and told me that they are cooking now.. I am so happy;) I love cooking and i like to see other woman cooking too:):) It is a noble thing to do besides fun,what you need is passion,if you are passionate in doing anything it will turn out good.Furthermore there is no best way to be happy than unleashing your passion. Because i love food and cooking i have extra happiness whenever i travel.i feel happy to sit at any restaurant or road side to savour food,i feel great walking at supermarket aisle and look at groceries,i feel funtastic to go to market to buy fish and my heart burst with happiness to go inside kitchenwares shop..is it an easy way to be happy:):)

The best eating experience that i had was eating grill lobster with cheese outside Monte Carlo Casino! ( hee..hee i didnt go inside the Casino ok!)..feeling diva,rich and famous at that time.Thank You to our X big boss,whenever we travel he never kedekut,he will take us to the best place to eat,may it be in France,London or anywhere..he loves to cook and do gardening,so we have things in common,whenever i visited his FB i can feel the happy vibes there:) So cooking and gardening is one of the key to a happy heart ladies ( and gentleman too:)) Let's do it Tia and Mia...mama gonna give you tutorial on how to cook the best gulai telur itik with asam kundang now,i inherited it from uwan and now passing it to you both.Pls bear in mind it is not easy to cook telur itik,if the method is not right the egg will break,the yolk will become too hard..tak sedaplah..the kuah will also cair..so there is a secret to it;)



Last time when the road to our house was not jam i used to reach home by 6.15 , i had enough time to sit in the garden in the evening before cooking but nowadays the jam is quite bad i always reach home at 7.00 kesian you both and uwan.Yesterday was okay, we reached home quite early and we had some quality times in our garden.




Mia so busy filling in water to water the plants.


While you two busy watering the garden and uwan was eating her durian i took out the asam kundang we bought from the road side at N9..so pada yang tak kenal this is asam kundang muda..very sour..tulis ni pun siap keluar air liur.This is not a good ones..buah tak berapa cantik but good enough for cooking. Apart from cooking it with telur itik it is also nice if you cook with ikan salai,ikan sungai,daging salai or put in ikan bilis sambal:)


You then need to halve the kundang.


This is the unwash telur itik..wash it before you break it..takut taik itik masuk..heee..hee


For 5 eggs,you can use a packet of coconut milk diluted with 2 glass of water. The best way to cook the eggs and avoid breaking is to cook in a wok,uwan taught me this.


Pound 5 or 6 chillies with tumeric (kunyit) and salt until it is really fine,after that add 2 shallots (small onion) and 2 garlic..pound it reasonably.Add it into the coconut milk in the wok. Tips: dont put too much tumeric,gulai telur itik should have less yellow colour.


Break you egg in a container,you have to do it one by one.See the egg yolk,it is so orange and nice..this is the sedap type.


Before you put in the eggs ,these are the steps : let the kuah boil first,stir it and slow down the fire,after the fire is really slow and no more boiling put in the eggs one by one far apart..if the kuah is boiling it can break the egg,the most that a wok of this size can take is 5 eggs.Quickly add in your asam kundang after that.


wait until the bottom part is harden a bit like this before you flip it, i am very particular about gulai telur itik if it broken i tak nak anymore,willing to throw it away..extreme hehhh...;);)


Once the bottom is hard a bit you can flip it..do it carefully.Taste the kuah,add in the salt if it not enough,dont add in asam keping because you asam kundang is more than enough.Dont let it cook too long,once the outer layer is harden a bit,press with your finger to ensure that the centre is still soft,quickly transfer it into a bowl as if you let it be cold in the wok,the egg will be harden and not nice anymore.


If you follow the steps,this is the result, a beautiful gulai telur itik,the egg is in a piece,the centre is still soft,the kuah is thick and creamy and the combination of asam kundang and coconut is really awesome..that i feel like cooking it again today..,..but no more telur itik;);)heee...hee


I prepared santan durian mentah for my mother,she loves to eat this with nasi panas.Just add durian into uncooked santan,add in salt,one sliced onion and mash one piece of durian so that the gravy will be thick and creamy.


Sambal tempoyak is a perfect add on to gulai telur itik.


I made daging masak kicap kering for hubby too.


This how it looks like in your plate..drool..drool...so sedapppppp..the egg yolk is so niceee..bagi yang suka gulai telur itik lah..tak semua orang suka;)


Like you both Tia and Mia..you tak heran pun gulai telur itik mama..you said " i want sushi,sushi..so both had sushi last night:) Crab stick and zucchini are your favourite.



Ok lah good nite kitchen see you tomorrow morning ya...


Morning pisang tanduk:);)


Uwan had pisang tanduk fritters this morning..yummy...



I fried macaroni and beef strips for papa and you both..uwan loves it too.Tips to fast western breakfast in the morning,always keep beef strips,sausage,canned peas,canned soup,fast cook pastas,olive oil and butter in your cupboard and fridge..you can have sumptous western breakie in a mins;)


This is the last meal that this puasa lady cooked this morning..chicken soup for Tia and Mia's dinner..it is a bit oily due to gomok unskinned chicken..good to scoop the oil on the top and throw it away..i always do it for soup..the best way to scoop the fat is to put in a fridge for a while..long time ago i read about Elizabeth Taylor's diet,she did that to all her soup..put in a fridge and scoop the fat once it is harden.Nanti petang ask Heni to heat it first okay..soup always nice to be eaten while it's hot.


Okay all set to go..breakfast pack for Tia and Mia..both have fried macaroni,whole dragon fruit for teacher claire to cut,vitagen and cream bread:) Lets go darlings..we dont want to be late okay;)

salaam mamatiamia..asam kundang tu biasa makan kalau yang masak..not yang muda..nanti nak try..kalau masa my girl study kat pilah tu selalu singgah beli telur itik kat UB and owhh yes..me memang cerewet jugak masak telor itik esp the egg yolk part..mesti lembut2 and cair2 sikit jugak..kalau yolk tu keras dah tak special la masak lemak telur itik :-)

mamatiamia dear,

i bab masak telur itik, mmg i "outsource" to my dad. cos my dad mmg superb in cooking it...hehhe..

also in cooking masak lemak cili api, i normally add asam belimbing. my parents hse mmg ada pokok nie. so cannot say no lah to it. btw, the buah is kind of abundance at their hse. so, selalu la my dad kirim kan kat i.

nak share the tips that my dad taught me in cooking chicken soup. same like sup tulang, i applied the tumis darat method to my chicken soup, but with a twist. i would boil the chicken first. when the fat surface on top, i will scoop it out. thereafter baru i masukkan bahanX2 yg ditumis asing, namely bawang merah, putih, bunga cengkih, bunga lawang, kulit kayu manis, fennel seed, cumin seed, and coriander seed yg di tumbuk halus + halia yg titik + 2-3 cardamom pods. i cuma add only a teaspoon of the rempah sup adabi for added flavour.

oops panjang pulak i berceloteh kali nie.

anyway, hv a good weekend ok dear! kisses & hugs for the adorable twins!
