Celebrating Eidul Fitr (Ramazan Bayram) and also My kid's 2nd B'day

Happy Eid al Fitr 1435 H for you who celebrate it. 

This Eid al Fitr 2014 is the happiest and memorable moment for me. After more than 5 times celebrated Eid in Turkey, this is the first time I feel like celebrate Eid al Fitr in my own country. Many my Indonesian fellow came to visit with their family. Some students who study here also came to visit.. to tied more closely relationship.

Beside that memorable Eid al Fitr, this year coincide with  my lovely baby's birthday, Sahnaz Kale this July turns 2! .. Time feel too fast passing by.. I still feel I just born her few months ago..now she turns 2 !

Two happy reasons (Eid al Fitr and my princess' B'day) is enough for me to celebrate it, just simple celebration. We invited some Indonesian to spend happy moment with simple Indonesian and Turkish Foods.

Like normally b'day party I also made one simple b'day cake for my daughter. This chocolate cake  made from 1 recipe of steamed chocolate sponge cake and 1 recipe chocolate brownie recipe steamed with simple fondant decoration. And chocolate frosting recipe here.


Easy Strawberry Ice cream (No machine required)

Ramadhan comes in summer this year 2014... Long day for fasting and so hot outside... May Allah gives us more 'pahala' (reward). And I think nothing more comfort and refreshing us after iftar in this Ramadhan than a cup (or more) of strawberry ice cream. I have no ice cream machine at home but it can't stop me to festive our summer days in this holy month.
You can make this also for your family.

Make about 800 ml
- about 400 gr fresh strawberry ( you can use frozen one too)
- Condensed milk about 1 cup
- Thick cream 1 cup
- Sugar about 4~5 Tbsp (according your taste) -- I used 4 because I add strawberry jam in my ice cream.
- few tsp homemade or store bought strawberry jam (optional)

Peynirli Yumurtalı Pide / Turkish Pide bread with cheese and egg topping

In Turkey, pita (called pide) has a soft, chewy texture. The pizza-like foods called lahmacun are made with oval-shaped pieces of pide dough topped with finely chopped meat and herbs before baking. Pide also refers to another pizza-like food made of pide dough topped with different ingredients. Regional variations in the shape, baking technique, and topped materials create distinctive styles for each region. Such pides can include chicken, beef, cheese, potatoes, garlic and many other ingredients. Beside Pide with meat toppingchicken toppingTurkish sausage topping, this time I made it with cheese and egg  topping. Also you can choose ayran for drink.

Serve: 8 pieces medium size

Crunchy Teriyaki Chicken Rice bowl / Ayam saus teriyaki

Selam everybody... Merhaba from Turkey

Suddenly missed and wanted to eat this food. This menu reminds me on typical menu of Japanese restaurant with a taste of Indonesia. If you live in Indonesia you will understand and know exactly the unique and characteristic of foods I mean. In Bursa, city I live now, as far as I know, it's hard to find a Japanese fast food restaurant .. maybe in starred hotel provides one or two Japanese food in their menu, mostly sushi-and I don't really like the taste...

Well, to ease sense of longing of Japanese food (with Indonesian taste), this Chicken rice bowl is enough to treat it .. Let's try it also in your kitchen. It won't disappoint you ...

Jajan Pasar "Klepon" (Indonesian traditional sweet dumpling snack)

Jajan means snack. Pasar = traditional market. In old time mostly you can find this food in traditional market in early morning or evening. But now it's getting easy to find it in any street corner or alley in my country.
"Klepon" , is one kind of Indonesian traditional snack. It's dumpling  made from glutinous rice flour with palm sugar filling, wrapped in fresh shredded coconut. 
Yes, since I'm in my homeland, I want to make this in my kitchen with real traditional and fresh ingredients (no substitute) like "Pandan Suji" leaves which gives natural green color and fragrance. Also fresh shredded coconut that rarely I can find in Turkey. But if you can not access to fresh shredded coconut, just try to steam dried one before use.

have a try and experience this folk snack and "taste the Indonesia "
