Sesame Chicken Rice Bowl

Selam everybody..Merhaba from Turkey.

Asian style dish is always my prefer. Just like this restaurant style dish-Sesame chicken. 
Today I am going to share sesame chicken rice bowl. The dish seems look alike general tso's chicken, but it is different actually in taste where this sesame chicken has more on sweet and light sour rather than spicy.

For the vegetable side dish I made simple shredded carrot and napa cabbage dressing with my simple version of thousand island dressing. It's just perfect for the sesame chicken.

This take away style dish amazingly easy and relatively quick to make So if you are asian food's fan as well I am sure you are going to love this. (^,^)


Lento dari Kacang tunggak / Indonesian style Black eyed peas fritter

Please Scroll down for recipe in English

Assalamu'alaykum...Merhaba dari Turkey.

Kalau sudah mulai masuk musim dingin kayak gini maunya pengen nyemil yang gurih dan pedas. Terus minumnya teh panas.... halllaa... apa'an sih. Musim dingin dijadiin alesan...heheheh..padahal kalau mo ngemil..ngemil aja kali ya.... (^,^)

Lagi pengen makan lento nih. Kalau di Surabaya suka tinggal beli di tukang gorengan deket rumah ibuk aja. Tapi disini dimana ada tukang gorengan? yang ada bakul börek (pastry khas Turki) atau roti di tiap sudut jalan.
Ya sudah... pasrah aja semua-semua kudu bikin sendiri kalau pengen makanan kampung di negeri orang. Kalau biasanya lento dibikin dari kacang tolo, kali ini saya bikin dari kacang tunggak. Kacang tunggak dan kacang tolo sebenarnya gak beda jauh dalam soal rasa dan gizi. Kacang tolo berwarna sedikit kemerahan sedangkan kacang tunggak berwarna putih kelabu. Kacang tunggak berasal dari butir/ isi kacang panjang yang dikeringkan dalam bahasa Inggris disebut black eyed peas. Di Turki disebutkan kuru börülce.


Marble Ogura Cake recipe

Selam everybody...Merhaba from Turkey.

Ogura cake, aka 相思蛋糕 / Xiāngsī dàngāo . No official sources why this cake name Ogura (Japanese language). Is it coming from Japan or invented in Japan or whatsoever. It's just this cake become very popular among Asian baker and Asian cake lover. The texture incredibly cotton soft, light and smooth texture with moist crumb. Rich in flavor yet light in sweetness.

If you are my regular reader you might notice that I only post one ogura cake previously, check my blood orange ogura cake here. And this post is my second post about ogura. Yep, I didn't bake that cake often it's not because I don't like ogura cake. I lllooovvveee it! I love anything light and not make my stomach full as dessert (cake).
I didn't bake it so often because until now I got pretty nervous baking it and still looking for perfect recipe that match with the pan size I have. I'm telling you..I don't purchase much baking equipment /baking pan like mostly Asian baker I know. In Turkey it's hardly to find many kind baking pan I need e.g removable NON non stick chiffon pan, or simple square NON non stick baking and some other more. Which if I'm in my homeland so easy to find. Using NON non stick baking pan is the best way to bake this cake~ which the most suitable one.

Start from traditional snacks e.g many kind of kueh basah (literally means wet snacks), fried snacks (in bahasa call gorengan) and other type of jajanan (snacks) mostly known as street food/ snack; for example batagor, siomay, kerak telur and more. 
Kueh basah are more often steamed than baked and normally have sweet taste, but some are savory as well.
Each type has very long list of snacks variant. Check some of them on my "snack" category list. You can also can check my Indonesian snack album in facebook.
And what I am going to share today is Pastel isi bihun, means fried dumpling filled with vermicelli noodle. You can fill it also with vegetable like my previous post here or mini version with beef/chicken floss here.

Just like many other Indonesian who enjoy tea/ coffee time with many kind snacks with it, I made this snack for my light breakfast or just evening coffee.

There are two parts should prepared to make this snack; filling and skin shell. I usually make vermicelli noodle first before prepare the skin dough. Or sometimes if I have some left over of fried vermicelli I previously made, I prefer use it for the filling.
So..are you interesting make one of Indonesian snack like this pastel bihun.... let's knead some dough now... (^,^)

LAHMACUN is an item of prepared food originating in the early Turkish cuisine of the Levant, consisting of a round, thin soft piece of dough topped with spicy minced meat (commonly beef and lamb). 
Lahmacun is often served sprinkled with lemon juice and wrapped around vegetables, including pickles, tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce, and parsley, cabbage salad or cilantro; a typical variants may be found as wraps for kebab meat or sauces.

It believed originate from South East of Turkey. The main ingredients are ground meat (beef/ lamb/ mutton), tomatoes, paprika, onion, salça and oil. Salça is thick tomato pasta (mostly homemade product) and prepared just before winter come when the tomato season in peak here in Turkey.
There are two kind of salça; damates salça (tomato paste) and biber salça (chili paste mostly made of capia peppers)

But the recipe might be vary from each regions. And what I want to share today is how commonly people in Bursa make it although some family from other region using a bit different. But still we all use same main ingredients as I mentioned above.

There are two process making this lahmacun, the dough and meat topping. After the dough double in volume, divide the dough into 10 to 15 equal parts. If you want smaller diameter lahmacun divide it into 15. Then roll each part of the dough very thin, verry thin! Then spread evenly with ground meat topping.
