More lempeng and a few slices of banana bread

 
 
 
It's been raining the past few days. The constant change in weather is causing me to have really bad headaches and feeling tired most of the time. Summer is coming soon and oh how I dread summer in Japan. Everything is so god damn hot and humid! You can't have one descent day that you can just go out and enjoy the sun without perspiring a bucket load of sweat! That's how bad the summer is here. And I hate it

Anyways, I thought I might share a few recipes I tried over the past weeks. One is yet another lempeng @ crepe but this time it's potato filling instead.



Ingredients:

2 large potatoes,peeled and grated
1 red bell pepper, grated
1/4 green onion, sliced thinly
1 tsp minced garlic
salt
pepper

for the crepe: refer to French Crepe from AllRecipes.com

How to make:

1. Mix together all ingredients and leave for about 5 minutes. Squeeze out as much liquid as you can from the potatoes, You can use paper towels or just squeeze 'em with your hands until they're nice and drained. This is to give that nice crisp when you fry them.
2. Prepare the crepe batter.
3. Heat a non-stick pan with oil and spread out about a ladle of the grated potatoes and spread them out so that they form a nice layer on top of the pan. Fry both sides (remember to press when frying or you'll make a big mess once you try to turn them around ) until they're nice and brown.
4. Pour a ladle of the crepe batter on top and spread the batter out so that it covers the whole pan and make sure it goes in between those spaces of grated potatoes.
5. Fry until crepe is cooked. This should take only a minute or two.
6. Serve warm with a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese.



And the second recipe is a recipe that my sister recommended,which she found from MyResipi.net. It's called 'Kek Pisang Sempoi' @ 'Super Simple Banana Bread'

You can check out the recipe here, but I'll write it again in English.



Ingredients:

150g mashed bananas
180g flour
180g white sugar
3 eggs
120ml veggie oil
1 tsp ovelate
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
1 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt

How to make:

1. Mix everything in your mixer until the batter is slightly whitish. This I believe is caused by the ovalette. If you don't have ovalette then you can omit it but I'm not sure if that will give any difference in texture.
2. Pour batter in baking tin and bake in a preheated oven of 180deg for about 40-45 minutes.
3. Take out cake once cooled and wrap in cling wrap overnight to give it moisture.
NOTE: Do not leave this cake out in the open for a long time or it'll dry out.

Both recipes turned out super yummy. I was satisfied with the outcome of both and plan to make them again whenever I have time You should give it a try as well.

Have a nice day everyone!

Oh goreng lempeng,lempeng nya hangus! :)

 
 
Hi everyone

Thank you again for the lovely comments and wishes. It's hard to believe that 3 months has passed since. Time flies huh?

Anyways, I thought I should update my fp since I haven't done so in a pretty long time. This I made quite some time ago, just didn't have the chance to upload the pics.
I found this recipe on MyResepi.net. This everyone is apparently called "Lempeng Arab" or "Arabic crepe"(?)
I can't really recall what it tasted like but when you have cheese and crepe, is there any way that could go wrong? I thought so



The recipe:


Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tbsp fresh yoghurt
1/2 cup fresh milk
3 tbsp olive oil
pinch of salt
2 large onions, thinly sliced or diced
Feta cheese
2 eggs, beaten

How to make:
1. Mix together flour,yogurt,milk,olive oil, salt and a little bit of water. The batter should be thin enough that it coats the back of the spoon when dipped in.
2. Heat a griddle or a non-stick pan with 1/2 tbsp butter. Take about 1/4 cup of the batter and spread on the pan. Sprinkle onion, feta cheese and 2 tbsp beaten eggs on top.
3. Fold crepe in two (and in quater- if you prefer so) Repeat until you have finished the batter.

Eat warm with a glass of orange juice. Great for breakfast. Easy and you can play with the filling. Add minced sausages, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese etc. -anything of your liking.



School has been tremendously busy lately. Lab work seems to be pilling up and it doesn't look like it's going to be any lesser

A year left, so I'm gonna do my best this year. Wish me luck people and have a good day!

Hello everyone

After ages of leaving my previous entry on 'sneak peek' mode, we've finally had the time to upload some of the pictures from our wedding. The photos are fairly big so it takes A LONG time to upload them, so we'll be adding more pictures from time to time

Again, many thanks for the wonderful wishes and doa. We really do appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts.

Salam,
Zack & Zairul

Assalamualaikum wbt to all viewers,

Pertama sekali, terima kasih to all atas ucapan tahniah atas perkahwinan kami. Alhamdulillah, kami sekarang telah pon bergelar suami dan isteri yang sah. Jutaan maaf kerana tidak dapat menjemput our viewers ke majlis kami disebabkan perubahan tarikh yang agak last minute disebabkan oleh election pada 8 Mac. Even so, berkat doa semua alhamdulillah,semua telah berjalan dgn lancar. Kami telah pon kembali ke Okayama dan kini tgh sibuk dengan persediaan utk berpindah ke apt. baru.

Again, terima kasih for all the wishes and kepada yang hendak melihat gambar2 majlis kami bolehlah ke website Mr.Daniel Zain (which is btw, a superbbbbbbbb photographer!) Unfortunately Mr.Daniel Zain akan berpindah ke San Diego bersama isterinya in June, but kepada sesiapa yang hendak menggunakan khidmat Mr.Daniel Zain, we both highly recommend him. Thank you Daniel and Mariam!

So, sekian buat masa ini. Harap maaf sebab kami tak dapat nak update sebyk and sekerap yang mungkin lately due to kesibukan masing2. We hope everyone would continue to come and visit us once in a while

Thanks you all.

Wassalam,
Mr. & Mrs. Zairul Azmil

Of Takamatsu and later, some choc & chips

 
 
 
Last week we went to Takamatsu City in Kagawa Pref. to visit an old friend of Zairul, Kosuke and his wife Michiko. It was my first time in Takamatsu and the city was, frankly speaking, I thought to be really nice and developed, despite Kosuke's endless arguments of how Okayama is wayyyyyy better than Takamatsu. Nevetheless, it was a beautiful city and it was also a rather windy day the day we were there. Our first pit stop was one of the local restaurant inside the station and we grabbed ourselves some breakfast there.

Inside and outside the station

Later we headed to Ritsurin Park, which was two stops after Takamatsu Station. The park was absolutely beautiful, regardless of the almost-balding trees,we could only wish we had been there earlier. The park had lots of cool places to take pictures of, but being the amateur-in-scenery photography, I only managed to take a few, what I consider, GOOD SHOTS out of the hundreds of shots I took that day







We later went by some of the lakes and ponds they have in the park and I can say, there could've easily been probably thousands of koi carp fish swimming in those lakes. They were so HUGE that for a minute they didn't look anything like a fish Visitors can feed them bread at 80yen a piece. Which I later concluded as the reason why they were so big and fat Yes people, carbohydrates not only make people fat, fish too



After a 3-hour stroll in the park, we were later picked up by Kosuke in his new Prius Hybrid (woot ) and I was, for the first time introduced to his wife, Michiko. They later took us to one of the famous udon restaurant in the city and we were treated with a very nice bowl of Kagawa's Udon. Michiko told me that the people in Kagawa eat udon at least once a day,and sometimes for breakfast! And dining out on weekends also meant Udon. Udon, Udon, Udon.



The weather was starting to cloud over us when we finished out late lunch and we all decided to go to an Yashima Aquarium which to my astonishment, located on top of a HILL! It's probably the highest aquarium I've ever been to. But because it was already starting to get dark by the time we reached there, and all the shows had ended (plus it was just a teeny aquarium ) so we decided to go back and hang out at Kosuke's apartment.

I saw the wedding video and looked at photos of their wedding and Kosuke showed me some very amusing pictures of Zairul and Kosuke when he came and visited Malaysia. Then it was time to go back home and they sent us off to the station. Since we had some time before the train leaves for Okayama, we went up Sun Port Building which is next to the train station and looked at the night view of Takamatsu at night. It was indeed, beautiful.



Eventhough it was just a day trip, but I had fun. Taking the train was the right thing to do and it only costs 1470yen from Okayama (for one way) and taking a car would've cost even more.



Thanks to Kosuke and Michiko for the trips around Takamatsu and we sure are going to go there again


------------------------------------------------------------

Later on this week, I made a wonderful dessert from, again, Allrecipes.com called Chocolate Cake with Liquid Centers @ Lava Cake.



It was really good, and it did melt in mouth, just as described in the recipe. My advise is to eat it while it's still warm with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Or you can leave it in the fridge and it'll taste even better the next day

Give it a try!

And then I made some chips, and what's amazing about it, is that I didn't fry them, but instead I microwaved 'em. And it turned out super crispy and super yummy! I was skeptical at first, but when I tried it, it turned out to be just like those natural potato chips you get in grocery stores. Trust me, it works!



How to make:
1. Clean potatoes (you can peel off the skin if you want, I left mine on) and slice it into thin slices.
2. Lightly coat with olive oil or any kind of oil with a dash of salt and pepper.
3. Spread them over your microwave ceramic plate in a single layer and cook 'em in the microwave at HIGH for about 4-5minutes.



Thanks to Lydia from My Kitchen, for sharing us the tip on how to make healthy chips minus the oil and calories. And trust me,it taste gooooooooodddd!

So that's it for now. Gotta run. I have a Christmas project to do- Gingerbread House! (It's for Berlitz's Christmas Party this weekend) Will upload pictures of it later Have a good day everyone!
