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...

  5. I like thin one but thick or thin, as long as it has lots of peanuts, it tastes good.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
