Apa kabar semuanya?? Inshaallah tetap sehat dan makin hepi ya. Bersyukur, bersyukur dan bersyukur.. salah satu kunci untuk buat kita selalu hepi. Benar kan ya 😊
Kunci bahagia adalah banyak bersyukur. Sedangkan salah satu kunci kaya adalah bersedekah 😊
Bersedekah bukan hanya menyisihkan harta kita saja lho, Rasulallah SAW bersabda:

“SETIAP ANGGOTA BADAN MANUSIA DIWAJIBKAN BERSEDEKAH SETIAP HARINYA SELAMA MATAHARI MASIH TERBIT; KAMU MENDAMAIKAN ANTARA DUA ORANG YANG BERSELISIH ADALAH SEDEKAH; KAMU MENOLONG SESEORANG NAIK KE ATAS KENDARAANNYA ATAU MENGANGKAT BARANG BAWAANNYA KE ATAS KENDARAANNYA ADALAH SEDEKAH; SETIAP LANGKAH KAKIMU MENUJU TEMPAT SHOLAT JUGA DIHITUNG SEDEKAH; DAN MENYINGKIRKAN DURI DARI JALAN ADALAH SEDEKAH.” (HR BUKHARI DAN MUSLIM).

Begitulah cakupan luas tentang bersedekah. Jika ada yang salah mohon koreksinya ya .

Viral Recipe: Dalgona Coffee ( Korean style Whipped coffee drink) with video

Viral Recipe: Dalgona Coffee ( Korean style Whipped coffee drink) | Çitra's Home Diary.

I admitted I am a bit late posting this viral drink. This whipped coffee drink wildly became phenomenal across Instagram a few months ago. People called this "Dalgona" coffee (latte).
The recipe originated in South Korea and requires only four ingredients; instant coffee, sugar, hot water, and milk.

Honestly, before this coffee became viral I never knew that if we whip the instant coffee powder and hot water (in the same portion) it will be creamy and has whipped cream consistency 😃

So, what is dalgona
Dalgona in Korea is a honeycomb sugar toffee. İt's a candy made with melted sugar and baking soda. It was a popular street snack in the 1970s and 1980s and is still eaten as a retro food. It has a different name for each region. When a pinch of baking soda is mixed into melted sugar, the thermal decomposition of the baking soda releases carbon dioxide, which makes the liquidized sugar puff up, and it becomes light and crunchy candy once cooled and hardened. Typically, the creamy beige liquid is poured on a flat surface, pressed flat, and stamped with a patterned mold.

One South Korean cafe combines this dalgona with milk tea or coffee.  This one that actually calls dalgona coffee.

But since Covid-19 pandemic spread worldwide, some people trying to make their own "dalgona coffee" at home and hashtag #dalgonacoffeechallenge become very popular across the internet. People tried to imitate the cafe version of dalgona coffee by using instant coffee powder. And what is popular then is "dalgona coffee" which doesn't actually contain dalgona or honeycomb sugar toffee.

Bored summer?
Even in Turkey apply "new normal" since last June, but personally, me and my family still feel unsafe. I have a perception in this pandemic time: "Nobody saves until everybody saves"

So we decided still to stay at home, enjoy our summer at home. Home gardening in our balcony and do small but fun things together.

Easy General Tso's Chicken Recipe| Çitra's Home Diary

General Tso's chicken is a sweet deep-fried chicken dish that is served in North American Chinese restaurants. The dish is named after Zuo Zongtang (also romanized Tso Tsung-t'ang), a Qing dynasty statesman and military leader, although there is no recorded connection to him nor is the dish known in Hunan, Zuo's home province.

A dish made of deep-fried batter-coated pieces of chicken that are cooked in a sweet, tangy, and sometimes spicy sauce. Some vegetables commonly served.

Even this dish is so popular in US, you might be surprised to learn that General Tso’s chicken is actually not very big in China — and it doesn’t even originate from mainland China. In fact, it hasn’t even been around for long: Its creation is widely credited to Peng Chang-kuei (who recently died) in 1952.

Reyhan Şerbeti / Turkish refreshing healthy beverage; Red Basil Sherbet | Çitra's Home Diary

Summer is at its peak. The only thing that comes to mind when the summer is getting hot is cold drinks. To beat the heat also to be healthy at the same time and not to leave our body to dehydrate. The favorite choice is this Turkish "Reyhan Şerbeti".
Reyhan means Red basil while şerbeti from word şerbet literally means sherbet or syrup.
Not to be confused with frozen sherbet/ sorbet.
The sherbet, which is very popular in West and East Asia, comes from the Arabic word “shariba”. If it means “drinking". 

So what is this sherbet? Sherbet is a refreshing and healthy syrup usually made from fruit, flower extracts, and herbs. The main ingredient is sugar and water. The prepared ingredient is then diluted with water and sugar is added for taste. 
It is also served with ice to add coolness. For some syrups, milk is also used instead of water. Lime juice is also added to most sorbet recipes. For this reason, lime water helps prevent the sugar from crystallizing in the syrup and enriches the flavor.

There are hundreds of varieties of sherbet can be made. Start from flowers, fruits, herbs, and spices. And they are not only prepared for hot summer, adding some warm herbs and spices, these sherbets perfect for warming up your body during wintertime.

My today post is about this ancient healthy yet refreshing beverage. And for cold down the summer heat, I will share Red basil sherbet or called "Reyhan Şerbeti".

I have a pot of red basil that needs to be harvested, so making this sherbet isn't just cool down my summer, but also keep my red basil plant alive and healthy 😊

But anybody knows the benefit of Red basil?

EASY  AND TASTY NO KNEAD ARTISAN BREAD | Çitra's Home Diary

During pandemic and quarantine time, I see many people have a trend to bake their own bread. I am with you my friends, baking our own bread is giving us undescribed happiness and satisfaction. Nothing more heaven than the smell of bread baking in the oven.

I started baking my own bread since 2009 when I am married my husband. Learning by doing. You can check my "Bread and buns" category to see my "baking bread journey" 😊 . And I am still want to learn more and bake more 🥖

The most bread I bake and serve to my family is sandwich white bread. Also, Turkish Pide bread which always on our dinner table every weekend. There are some versions of Pide bread, No-knead version, knead version, and Pide bread with poolish method.

And today I will share my latest bread recipe; a hearty, rustic of no-knead artisan bread
Artisan bread is a term that has no absolute definition but refers to a style of short shelf-life bread that is usually offered unpackaged (in baskets) and consumed immediately after baking for maximum freshness.
The term artisan bread conjures the image of artisan bakers who are masters of their craft, shaping bread by hand and only using the basic bread ingredients: flour, water, yeast, salt, and most importantly time. This is a stark contrast to the standardized, repeatable, and industrially-produced bread that is often found in the supermarket bread aisle.~~ Bakerpedia.com

One of my family's fave cake is a marble cake. The best combination of marble cake I like is coffee and chocolate. Chocolate and coffee are matched with each other, don't you think so? It's a rich and addict combination, my first choice for making a marble cake.

Today I will share another marble cake, but it's different from my previous classic butter marble cake. Since I have so many leftover eggwhites, I decide to make it a cake.
Eggwhite cake tends to be tasteless, so adding a combination of a chocolate and coffee absolutely great idea I think.

Some of you may have a recipe that only uses egg yolks and left the whites... Next time do not discard your egg whites, cause you still can use them in some recipes. Keep them in a clean airtight jar and store in the refrigerator.
Or maybe you already have some leftover egg whites and still looking for recipes that use only the whites. 
Well.. you come to the right page 😉
I have 20+ recipes using egg whites only. You can check my web page category by ingredient and click at subcategory "egg white"

If you are my old blog reader you may already familiar with my steamed cake recipe, like my famous "Zebra Steamed cake from egg white" or my "Steamed Dark Chocolate Forest Cake".

Noodles are a type of food made from unleavened dough which is rolled flat and cut, stretched or extruded, into long strips or strings. Noodles can be refrigerated for short-term storage or dried and stored for future use. Noodles are usually cooked in boiling water, sometimes with cooking oil or salt added

Generally, noodles made from wheat flour and water. Salt is sometimes added, and cornstarch is sprinkled on fresh noodles to keep them from sticking together. Egg noodles or dan mian, occasionally flavored with shrimp and yellowish in color, are popular in southern China.
Other types of noodles made with rice flour (cellophane noodles/ vermicelli) or mung bean flour (glass noodles). Soba noodles made from buckwheat flour, wheat flour, and water.

Tiap kondisi orang juga macam-macam ya. Ada yang sudah tinggal puluhan tahun di negeri pemakan pokok non beras, tapi tetap kalau gak makan nasi katanya gak makan. Hal begitu juga wajar saja karena mungkin kondisi dia berbeda. Kan ada tuh, satu keluarga berasal dari Indonesia (negara Asia) tapi tinggal di negara pemakan roti-misalnya..tentu saja susah karena seluruh anggota keluarga pemakan nasi 😃
Ada juga yang memang susah kalau tidak makan nasi walau seluruh keluarga dan lingkungan pemakan pokok non beras... Ada, balik ke pribadi masing-masing ya.

Sudah lebih dari 10 tahun tinggal di Turki, selera saya sudah mulai bisa beradaptasi. Cuman makan roti seharian dengan masakan khas sini sudah biasa. Pokoknya kalau perut sudah kenyang, ya udah, mau roti, kentang, pasta atau gandum, ya udah gak perlu makan nasi kalau tak ada 😊
Adaptasi memang kan salah satu kemampuan dari manusia ya.. bisa menyesuaikan diri dengan lingkungan tinggal kita. Beras sebagai makanan pokok orang Indonesia tergolong mahal disini. Jadi saya mau gak mau juga kudu menyesuaikan dengan kondisi semacam itu. Walau memang kadang sesekali pengen juga makan nasi dengan lauk khas kampung halaman.

Naahh...seperti beberapa hari yang lalu, pas bongkar-bongkar kulkas, ketemu petis yang saya simpan udah lama. Mumpung masih bagus akhirnya saya masak aja

Banana Egg White Cake Recipe / Chiffon Cake Pisang dari Putih telur (Chiffon putih telur) | Çitra's Home Diary.

Banana is always there in my table or my refrig. It's like a must fruit for every house because it fulls of benefits for our body.
There are hundreds of articles you can read about banana around the internet, magazine, or at the libraries.

A little bit about this humble fruit, bananas are known to reduce swelling, protect against developing Type 2 diabetes, aid in weight loss, strengthen the nervous system, and help with the production of white blood cells, all due to the high level of vitamin B6 that bananas contain.
Eating a banana between meals helps stabilize blood sugar and reduce nausea from morning sickness.
Bananas are high in antioxidants, providing protection from free radicals and chronic diseases.

Banana Egg White Cake Recipe / Chiffon Cake Pisang dari Putih telur (Chiffon putih telur) | Çitra's Home Diary.

That is why we should have bananas at home, every day. But sometimes we have an overripe banana on the table and we are not in the mood eating it. It happened to me a lot. Sometimes I froze it then end up making Double Chocolate banana muffin.
Or if you have overripe bananas and you love steamed cake, you should try my Steamed Banana Cake. Or try simple yet delicious snacks like Banana Fritters.

And today I will share my other favorite recipe using this favorite banana; Banana Chiffon Cake from (left-over egg white). So this recipe is a "keeper", especially for you who has much leftover egg white in your refrigerator. 
For other inspiration or ideas on how to finish up your leftover egg whites, you can click on my "Eggwhite" category here. 

Even make from just egg whites, I assure you this banana chiffon is delicious and full of flavor because banana enriches the taste and flavor on this spongy cotton soft cake. This cake also perfect for our tea/ coffee time, it soft and will not make you full because it is very light in texture.

Just like other European countries, bread is a staple for Turkish. Turkish people eat bread (turkçe: ekmek) start from breakfast to dinner. Bread is of such importance in Turkey that even to throw bread is an insult. No bread should ever go to waste

We eat bread with a slice of white cheese, dip it into olive oil for breakfast, spread with jam or tomato paste (salça). Eat with Turkish sucuk (dry spicy sausage) and eggs or just simply dip into a creamy soup.

Bread in Turkish culture varies according to the region, the way it is cooked, and its ingredients. Dor an example; Trabzon bread, one of the famous bread from Black Sea region. It differs from other bread it has long making process. 

There is also "bazlama" which is famous from Ankara. It's a single-layered, flat, circular, and leavened bread with a creamy yellow color, found in Turkey. It has an average thickness of 2 cm and diameters ranging from 10 to 25 cm, cook over pan instead of baking in the oven.
I will share this "bazlama" bread next time.

Gömeç ekmek (gömeç bread) also call "breakfast break (kahvaltı ekmeği), a specialty from Konya Province. It's a flatbread similar to ramazan pide (but different). Traditionally made by a group of women and bake in the public stone oven similar to the tandoori oven.

And Happy Eid-el Fitr to all my Muslim friends around the globe. May Allah bless you with happiness and grace your home with warmth and peace.



Pineapple tarts cookies are one of Indonesian traditional (and some neighboring countries) cookies that commonly made and serve during religious holidays such as Eid-el Fitr or Christmas along with many other traditional cookies like; kaastengelsputri saljupastel miniButter cokies or simple chocolate cookies and more.
In Indonesia it is called nastar which is the contraction of nanas tart (Ananas or pineapple tart).

Most of nastar in Indonesia has a round shape with a diameter of about 2 centimeters. The pineapple jam is filled inside instead of spread on top. The cookie is often decorated with small pieces of cloves or raisins on top of it.


We never bored of it because we can vary it as many as we can. Just check my COOKİES CATEGORY to see my "nastar" variations. You can make many variations base on shape and filling. Adding some cheese into the dough definitely enriches the taste of this classic Indonesian cookies. 💙

The Eid el Fitr will come soon... After fasting one full month, Muslims around the world will celebrate the Eid-el Fitr holiday. 
Different from Turkey, Indonesian bake many kinds of cookies instead of Baklava. Cookie jars arrange on the table waiting for family, friends, relatives, and neighbors to come. 

But this year would be sadly different 😢
There won't be a family gathering due to the worldwide pandemic COVID-19. Gathering or meeting restrictions made to cut the spread of the virus.

Generally, the case in Turkey per 21 May showed positive grafik. The case getting low and lower daily. Per May, Turkey confirmed a total of 149,435 coronavirus cases as of Sunday. 109,962 of them have fully recovered while the death toll stands at 4,140.

Turkey has been one of the countries detecting COVID-19 cases the most rapidly and it took an important step by starting treatment at an early stage, the nation’s health minister told Monday the World Health Assembly (WHA).

"It is among the best-performing countries in terms of mortality rate and burden on the health care system. Thanks to the measures taken, Turkey was able to delay the arrival of the virus for three months and used this time to prepare its hospitals and health care system for the outbreak," Fahrettin Koca said.

He noted that the occupancy rate in Turkey's hospitals is still below 40% and below 60% in intensive care units.

"Turkey is one of the few countries providing all services to its citizens free of charge under universal health coverage. We are always ready to exchange knowledge and experiences," said the minister.--

So, I am trying to cheer up the days and upcoming Bayram holiday by keep bringing the holiday atmosphere to our house. Cook and bake as I was cooking for the Eid-el Fitr holiday for my family at home. Clean up and decorate our house as if many guests will come 😃
But since nobody will come I bake a small batch only. Just enough for us for this holiday.

Turkish (flat bread) Ramadan Pide with #poolish method / Ramazan Pidesi (poolish ön mayası) | Çitra's Home Diary

Ramadan pide, one of  Ramadan staple here in Turkey. It's a traditional soft leavened Turkish bread. Round or oval and rather flat in form, and having a weave-like patterned crust, Ramazan pidesi is made of wheat flour with yeast and topped with egg glaze and sesame and or nigella sativa seeds.
It is traditionally served for the iftar and sahur meals during the holy month of Ramadan.


With Ramadan starting, everyone is waiting for the moment they get a hot Ramadan pide for iftar (fast-breaking meal) and put butter on it or dip into a hot soup (çorba). Enjoying the enchanting smell before eating the whole piece in a second. 

And seeing a long queue in front of fırın/ public bakery before iftar time to get this delicious flatbread fresh from the oven is a common view. But since the COVID-19 pandemic, people hesitate to go out and no crowd being allowed.
Mostly public bakery already produces this pide bread before 6 PM and already wrapped up waiting for people to buy or they will distribute to the neighborhood. 


Baking bread at home also became more popular these days. During the pandemic, people tend to cook or make anything at home including baking bread.
But for me, baking bread it's not about a trend. I love baking my own bread cause my husband loves to eat homemade bread.

You may remember my previous post of baking No-Knead version of Ramazan pidesi a couple years ago, it becomes my popular post. Check how to make that no-knead version for quick and fail-proof Turkish Ramadan pide here.
For another version, you can check my other recipe here.

Damla sakızlı Süt Helvası / Turkish dessert; Milk Bake pudding with mastic gum | Çitra's Home Diary

We are enjoying the month Ramadan in Muslim world right now. So, we are cooking and baking Ramadan recipes at home. For Turkish, dinner table (iftar safrası) in Ramadan should always be special. More special than the daily table.

We start the iftar dinner with hurma (date) as our sunnah. Then soup ( turkçe; çorba) as our appetizer. Then we will have an entreé complete with salad as a side dish. Then dessert (tatlı) served most probably a few minutes after iftar (break the fast) together with tea time sometimes.



Since we had our iftar (break the fasting) full flavors, we serve them in a small portion or as personal preference. And we want our dessert is light.
Just like what I am going to share today. It's light, creamy yet delish Turkish milk pudding calls süt helvası. Süt in Turkish means milk. Helvası from the word "helva" means halvah or sweet/ dessert. This dessert is famous from Bursa, the city I!m living in now.
This dessert is one of repeatable menu in my house, I made this many times since it's my husband's fave. You can check my previous Süt Helvası here.

In Indonesia mostly we make or buy snacks to enjoy during iftar, we call it Ta'jil (read; taqjeel)Ta'jil itself comes from Arabic language means to fast-breaking, so it has nothing to do with the food. But in Indonesia, the term ta'jil is becoming commonly used as an expression of usually sweet iftar appetizers. Prophet Muhammad s.a.w gave the example of eating dates as the beginning of iftar.

Kue is an Indonesian bite-sized snack or dessert food. Kue is a fairly broad term in Indonesian to describe a wide variety of snacks; cakes, cookies, fritters, pies, scones, and patisserie. Kue is made from a variety of ingredients in various forms, some are steamed, fried, or baked.
