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 😊

YYaaayyy..... İ hope you are not boring with it. Yep. This is the MOST repeatable cookie İ made for our cookie jar.
İ lloovvee it and never get bored of it. İf you know what pineapple tart cookies ( İnd, Nastar) is and you ate them before İ believe you like them as well.

Pineapple tarts cookies is one of Indonesian traditional (and some neighbouring countries) cookies that commonly made and serve during religious holiday such as Eid-el Fitr or christmas along with many other traditional cookies like; kaastengelsputri saljupastel miniButter cokies or simple chocolate cookies and more.

But in my house, no need to wait until holiday season to have this melt in mouth yummy cookies. Me and family always have evening tea time just like other Turkish family~and it would be very nice to have some cookies with it, right?
So I always have jars full with some cookies and this pineapple tarts cookies (nastar) is almost never empty cause I love it so much!
With sweet slightly sour taste from homemade pineapple jam inside of melting yummy cookie dough, nothing can beat this favorite tarts till now.

Even İ make this nastar quite often, as İ mentioned above-we never boring of it because we can vary it as many as we can. Just check my COOKİES CATEGORY to see my "nastar" variations. Just like today, İ make cheesy pineapple tart cookie. Adding some cheese into the dough definitely enrich the taste of this classic Indonesian cookies. 💙

Especially when it's good...

İ have been try so many recipes before and they were all turning out deliciously . But this is my second chocolate swiss roll beside my old post Almond Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake.

Found this recipe on youtube by Michael Lim and it really worth keeper recipe.

Absolutely will repeat making it since İ love the recipe and more important is my family like it too.

Different from traditional Indonesian roll cake which require small amount of cake emulsifier, this recipe use separated egg method to allow cake fluffy and soft.

The cake also moist and has delicate pores and crumbs. The sweetness is just perfect for us. And the most important thing for roll cake is this cake flexible and easy to roll, no crack problem.

The cake vanished just in one day! 
You should try it too and tell me how do you like it.

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.
