Simple Steps To Apom Balik aka Tai Kau Meen

HOW TO OVERCOME MY CRAVINGS..... the only way is to DIM.... Do-It-Myself... LOL... and that was exactly what I did yesterday.  My cravings for the Peanut Pancake aka Tai Kau Meen in Cantonese and Apom Balik in Malay was put into trial test, thanks to a lady who posted up her recipe on Facebook.  I quickly screenshot the recipe and gave it a try yesterday...

Ingredients: 1 cup multi-purpose flour
2 tbsp fine sugar (I used brown sugar)
1 egg
1/2 tsp yeast
1/2 baking soda
1 cup water (I used 3/4 cup)
Mix all the ingredients and leave for 1/2 hour....

Meanwhile, I crushed my Peanut Candy cookies which were given by my neighbour...
I cut a small portion of SCS butter and a scoop of peanut butter.... 
Into the pan the batter goes... low fire... 
First round, I poured in a thin batter.... 
Best is to wait for the batter to be drier or cooked longer first
before putting in the peanuts and butter.... 
Trial try.... a bit too soft... so I must heat the batter longer.... 
Took a bite... hmmmm... not bad leh... 
Second round of batter, I poured in more to get a thicker pancake.... 
Browner this time.... just like those sold outside... LOL....
I got it!!
Actually it works either way, depending on how we wanted it... 
Thick or thin, they taste as good... 
One pancake cut into three pieces.... so total I have 6 for this recipe....
More than enough for us....
Next round, I will add in corn... how about that?
LOL...

Noodles And Salad

MEALS OF THE DAY.... Homecooked and outside food....
My neighbour bought Koayteow goreng for me... 
Long time I did not eat this... so I finished it all.... and I have to skip lunch.. for once!
For dinner, I dumped all these in my bowl of Maggi noodles...
I did not use the packet since I have "ikan bilis" soup....
A very fulfilling meal again.... 
And while eating half-way, my neighbour called me.... 
She passed over this salad consisting of apples, cucumber, carrot and "suit lin"
For sauce, she used plum sauce and apricot jam...
So nice that I asked for her recipe... 
And I will do this when my kids come home!
