Sate Kambing Bumbu Kacang / Indonesian Lamb or mutton satay with peanut sauce. | Çitra's Home Diary. #lambkebab #lambsatay #muttonsatay #satayrecipe #indonesiansatay #peanutsauceforsatay #peanutrecipe #indonesianrecipe #resepsatekambing #satebumbukacang #indonesiansatayrecipe

Satay is a grilled meat dish famous throughout Southeast-Asia. Indonesians consider it a national dish conceived by street vendors. These tasty meat skewers are most popular with chicken, beef also lamb or mutton. We also have vegetarian satay version use tofu and tempeh instead of meat. 
Traditionally it served with white steamed rice or cake rice (Ind; ketupat and lontong). 

And generally it served with fresh cucumber pickle as well. Some area (like Madura island) serve together with bone soup or in middle Java serve this satay with gulai tongseng.

So if you want this satay in quick, you should prepare your white rice or cake rice in advance. Also you need to make peanut sauce and fresh pickled cucumber in ahead.

In Indonesia it self there are many types of satay from various regions and of various ingredients. For example, from Padang city (Sumatra), I like satay Padang. There are also "sate kelapa" (beef satay wrapped with grated coconut-My best favorite)-it's mostly common from Madura Island, quail eggs satay, clam satay, 'tempeh' and tofu satay or mushroom satay for vegetarian option.
And there are dozens of other types of satay (which is nearly I have eaten already).

No knead Ramazan Pidesi / Turkish Ramadan Pide (flat bread) with step by step pictures. Best and authentic recipe.


Selam everybody...........Merhaba from Türkiye


Bread or ekmek we call in Turkish language is staple of all food in Türkey as well very much important in Turkish culture.  Not just bread, we treat our food with respect. Wasting foods (bread) is disrespectful and günah or sin.

Eat and finish what you take.

Bread is always on our dinner table. Serve morning to evening. Dip in a hot creamy soup, eaten with Turkish köfte (meatball) in between or any meal. Or just simply spread with salça (homemade tomato paste) for hurry brunch.

You can find a dozen types of ekmek/ bread in market or local fırın (bakery) which always serve fresh and hot bread from a traditional big stone oven. And there is one bread that special baked at a special occasion, Ramadhan or Ramazanİt's Ramazan pidesi.

There are many classic dishes that are associated with Ramazan in Turkey. But no other item signifies the breaking of the fast better than a loaf of pide (read; pee-deh).
Ramazan pidesi, it's round and rather flat in form, and having a weave-like patterned crust shape by fingers.
Ramazan pidesi is made of wheat flour with yeast, rub with egg wash and topped with sesame and black sesame seed.








It is traditionally served for the iftar and sahur meals during the holy month of Ramadan
is highlight bread in turkey during Ramadhan month.


Bakeries all over Turkey provide this Ramazan pidesi hot and fresh about an hour or two before iftar time. So you will see a long queue in front of fırın/ bakery before iftar time to get this delicious pide hot from oven during the month of Ramadhan.

How to prepare and cook beef (ox) tongue / Cara memasak lidah sapi


Hello everybody....Merhaba from Türkiye.

For some people eating offal or other part of animal sounds gross. Or maybe some of you just don't know how to prepare or cook them.

Offal could be delicious as normal meat if we know how to cook it, for example cow's feet (or legs) or (beef) tongue. You can be hooked once you taste delicious meal using those animal part because it prepared correct and cook it clever way. 

Today İ am going to share a tip how to prepare and cook  beef tongue. Beef tongue is lean meat that can be very tasty. But when you didn't cook it properly it can be pretty chewy and almost rubbery.

Since it's quite lean as İ mentioned above, it'll took sometimes to cook to have butter-soft texture which we look for. Some said 30 minute per pound, some said an hour. 
Personally İ didn't really using timer or whatsoever, İ just cooked and check my beef (ox) tongue periodically and test it by insert a big fork in thickest part of tongue, when it easily slip off from the fork it' done.

My Homemade Plum sauce / Saus Buah Prem



Selam Everybody....... Merhaba from Türkiye.





Plum sauce, is one of staple condiment in Asian cuisine. İt's sweet and sour basic sauce can be used for cooking or dipping sauce such as spring roll, dumpling, fried chicken, roasted duck and more.

Store bought plum sauce mostly has viscous brown to dark brown in color. Unlike when we make it at home, the color tends to light red to dark one.. just like plum's color.
İ have no idea what kind of plum used for making plum sauce at manufacture so they can produce light brown to dark brown color.
