Şöbiyet Tatlısı / Turkish Sobiyet Baklava Recipe

"Kurban Bayramınız kutlu olsun....Happy Eid al-Adha 1436 H"

Assalamu'alaikum..... Merhaba from Turkey...

Eid al-Adha or feast of sacrifise or in Turkey calls Kurban bayram is the great festival of Islam to honors the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son as an act of submission to Allah's command, before God then intervened, through his angel Jibra'il and informs him that his sacrifice has already been accepted.

The Sacrifice Feast comes about 70 days after the Ramazan Festival. The meat from the sacrificed animal is preferred to be divided into three parts. The family retains one third of the share; another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; and the remaining third is given to the poor and needy.

Like Ramadhan bayram (Eid al-fitr) traditionally baklava and other sweets also serve in Kurban bayram here in Turkey. Generally people make at home or buy künefe or baklava or Rıvani or turkish delight and chocolate sweets and other sweets for serve to the guests.

I didn't make baklava at last Ramadhan bayram, so I promise my self I would make some baklava at Kurban bayram or next ramadhan bayram.... So here my homemade Şöbiyet baklava recipe using ready bought baklava phylo sheet. There 's no reason using store bought phylo sheet but for practical and easy way to make delicious baklava with very thin phylo layer and crunchy in every sheet.

Yufka or phylo sheet for making baklava dessert is different for making börek pastry. Phylo sheet for making baklava we call it baklavalık yufka, it has very much thin, dry and almost transparent layers while phylo sheet for making börek pastry has thicker and slightly moist layers.

Indonesian food recipe, Bandung style steamed fish dumpling /Siomay Khas Bandung

“Being a mother is an attitude, not a biological relation.” ― Robert A. Heinlein

Selam everybody.... Merhaba from Turkiye..

Siomay (some people also call somay) is steamed fish dumpling serve with mix vegetables and tofu, flush with peanut sauce, kecap manis (sweet soy sauce), chili sauce and lemon juice or kaffir lime. So it's deliciously sweet-sour spicy dish.

Siomay is ubiquitous in Indonesian cities, It can be found in street-side food stalls, mobile carts, bicycle vendors, or even in restaurants. But the most popular place is in Bandung (West Java) so people call it siomay Bandung.

This food derived from Chinese cuisine shui mai (or shumai or shaomai). Beside influenced by Dutch cuisine (in Dutch colonial long time ago), Indonesian cuisine also had influence by other countries like India, Arabic, and Chinese. 

And my today's post is Bandung style siomay. I use haddock fish fillet mix with shrimps, but optionally feel free to use chicken minced mix with shrimp/ fish. But my suggestion if you mix with chicken, use bigger portion of fish/ shrimp than chicken meat. 

For other vegetables complements, usually people use bitter gourd/ bitter melon, white cabbage- boiled and rolled, boiled potato. There's also tofu and hard-boiled eggs. 
Enjoy your siomay with lime juice (mostly from kaffir lime), sweet soy sauce and chilly sauce.

Raining during the weekend marking of the spring has started. Soft and fresh (slightly cold) wind swept the summer heat. Welcome rains, welcome cloudy days... welcome fall.

And I believe this red lentil soup could bring us a little warmth on our family table. I made this simple version without carrot and potato. Quick, simple yet fulfill our family nutritious.

"We Never know the Love of parent until we become parents ourself"

Selam..... Merhaba from Turkiye.....

Today I'd like to share other steamed cake recipe. As you know steamer method has been used for centuries in mostly Asian cuisine. Unlike mostly western cooking method which require oven bake on mostly their cooking process, we are Asian people accustomed with steam cooking process than oven bake. We steam almost everything start from main dish, side dish, bread, until dessert.

With steam process we can avoid of burning or overbaking/ overcooking on food. And with steaming I believe we can get healthier and more nutritious especially when we steam vegetables.

I like steam my cake also. Cake with steamed process has more moist than baking one. And it's moist can last until few days (keep in an airtight container). And for me steam cake is always fail-proof in any recipe I make. 

And today I'll share one of my favorite cake recipes, it's definitely delicious and champion in my family. I use this recipe long time ago and still not boring of it. It's rich and intense of chocolate flavor, moist yet fluffy. With silky chocolate sauce even it's a plus plus.. (^,^) 😄

Silky chocolate sauce: (make it ahead)
  • 140 gr chocolate chip
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp full-fat milk

Cherry Flaky Pie

“Never do for a child what he is capable of doing for himself.”--Elizabeth Hainstock

Salam..... Merhaba from Turkey everyone.....

Weekend is my favorite time..when we can spend time with family, husband and kid or with your friend. Don't you agree of that? Spending quality time with your love ones.

Welcome September.. the month where summer will end and fall will come. And as the season changes, I should prepare some change on our wardrobe---yeahhh... maybe it's too early for some of you-- but for me as a mom of growing kid, I am not sure that my kid still has some fall/winter clothes which still suit for her.

Kids growing so fast you know. We change her shoes twice. I remember bought her new shoes for summer at early summer this year... but couple weeks ago she complained that her feed was pain.. she said in her mix language "mommy, my feet sıkıstı"
sıkıstı she means like in bind or being pressed in Turkish (^,^) . So Last week we bought new shoes for her.

And of course with her clothes.... I should check and prepare all for upcoming fall/ winter-head to toe...
Anyway.... summer almost end and I'm a little regret I didn't buy much cherry this summer. I love cherry and like always do previous summer I freeze them for dessert in fall/ winter. Sometimes I made cherry jam. But as I said, I didn't buy much cherry this season....
