BLESSING FRIDAY MORNING WITH SAKURA EBI FRIED RICE AND VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD



Sakura Ebi ???Have you heard or tried this.? “Sakura Ebi” or Cherry Blossom Shrimp are tiny (maximum 5 cm) crustaceans caught in the Suruga Bay of Shizuoka. I first encounter this in Tokyo, Japan way back in 2006 and ever since then used these tiny shrimp for my udon or soba noodles. Tasty and delicious.

Sakura-ebi may be eaten raw, or doused briefly in boiling water (kama-age). Suboshi sakura-ebi is dried directly in the sun, and niboshi sakura-ebi is boiled in a huge pot and then dried either in the sun or in a drying device. The flavor of the sun-dried shrimp intensifies the more it is chewed; and the shrimp that are boiled before drying have a light crunchy texture.

Since sakura-ebi are eaten shell and all, it is a plentiful source of calcium and enriches the flavor of foods like sakura-ebi no kakiage (tempura made with sliced onion), and is often eaten with hot udon or soba noodles. Sakura-ebi are a standard ingredient of okonomiyaki (vegetables and meat or seafood mixed with batter and fried on a griddle).

In this fried rice recipe, I pan fried the sakura ebi with onion first and further incorporated it with fried rice. Try this !!! really awesome. You can get sakura ebi in supermarket such as expatriate supermarket selling Japanese Product. Jusco is one of place.

On this blessing Friday  morning, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Kak Jee from Dapur Kak Jee for Versatile Blogger Award given to me. Thanks Kjee I'm honored and happy with the award given. I knew Kjee through her articles in Utusan Malaysia, she was a journalist and has an informative blog  that share up todate news and recipe. Click her http://www.dapurkakjee.com/ 
to know more about Kjee

 Ingredients:
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 6-8 cloves of garlic, chopped but not fine
  • 1/2 large yellow or white onion, diced
  • 1 cup of dried Sakura Ebi
  • 2 red chilies thinly slice
  • 6-8 cups of rice cooked (short grain) which is about 3 cups uncooked
  • canola oil or other light oil with high smoke point
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions for garnish
  • Salt
  • white pepper (black pepper is okay as well, but the rice will look dirty)

Sakura Ebi
  1. Beat eggs and made thin omelete. Thinly slice omelete and set aside
  2. Heat up the large wok with a generous amount of oil and sauté the garlic at high heat for a few minutes.  The garlic should release a nutty flavor and become soft.  Remove immediately once the garlic has become fragrant.   
  3. Begin sautéing the onion in the pan until almost translucent.  This recipe calls for white or yellow onion simply for aesthetic purposes.  The only rich color in this dish is going to come from the shrimp and the green onion.  The rest of the dish should be fairly colorless so that the red and green pop out.  Add the shrimp to the onion and let it sauté at high heat until the fragrances of the shrimp opens up and the shrimp become lightly fried and crunchy.  This will take only a minute or so. Remove shrimp and onion from pan.
  4. Add rice into the pan and fry for a few minutes.  You will need to break up the rice carefully.Add the salt, pepper, garlic, eggs, onion, and shrimp back into the pan and toss with rice. Once it looks well combined and is seasoned to your liking, serve with scallions.

Nasi Goreng Sakura Ebi!!, jangan salah faham ini bukan masakan yang menggunakan bunga sakura. Sakura Ebi adalah sejenis udang halus yang ditangkap di Suruga Bay di Shizuoka di Jepun. Lebih kurang udang geragau di Malaysia. Biasanya dimasak secara segar atau dikeringkan macam udang kering. Dalam resipi nasi goreng ini saya menggunakan yang dikeringkan. Sakura Ebi ini saya goreng secara berasingan dahulu baru di masukkan dalam nasi goreng.

Sedap Sakura Ebi ini bukan sahaja sesuai untuk nasi goreng tetapi boleh juga dimasukkan dalam sebarang sayur yang digoreng. Boleh didapati dipasaraya yang menjual bahan-bahan untuk pegawai dagang, biasanya pasaraya yang menjual bahan-bahan dari Jepun.

Dikesempatan pagi Jumaat ini saya ingin mengucapkan berbanyak terima kasih kepada Kak Jee dari Dapur Kak Jee kerana sudi menganugerahkan Versatile Blogger Award kepada saya. Thanks Kjee, saya menghargainya. Saya mengenali Kak Jee melalui tulisan-tulisanya dalam akhbar dan baru-baru ini banyak update berita terkini boleh didapati melalui blog Kjee.

SCOTTISH SHORTBREAD


This shortbread recipe is very simple and uses just flour, sugar, butter and a little bit of salt. It's tender, melt in your mouth texture. The shortbread have a wonderful consistency and a very buttery flavor, with just a hint of sweetness that makes them satisfying. .

  3. Cut butter into large chunks and add to food processor. Whiz for about 1 minute, until dough has a very sandy and starts to clump together. Pour into a 9-inch square pan and spread into an even layer. Use a flat-bottomed glass to press down the dough firmly, creating as smooth a surface as possible.

  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until shortbread is lightly browned all over.

BREAKFAST WITH CUCUR BILIS ADABI


This is an instant anchovies fritters that I made for breakfast this morning. Just follow the instruction from the packaging, however to make more impact on the fritters I added some slice onion, chopped green onion, and bird's eys chilli. Serve best with chili sauce while it is still hot.
_________________________________________________________________________

Kadang-kadang buntu juga memikirkan apa yang hendak disediakan untuk sarapan pagi, seperti pagi ini saya memang sudah ketandusan idea tentang apa yang hendak disiapkan untuk sarapan. Nasib baik anak saya Myraz cadangkan buat cucur adabi katanya teringin tenguk kawanya bawa bekal ke sekolah. Jadi bagai pucuk dicipta ulam mendatang grap aje bungkusan tepung adabi ini dan jadilah cucur bilis adabi sebagai sarapan pagi tadi. Untuk tidak menampakkan terlalu kosong saya masukkan juga sedikit ikan bilis, bawang besar, daun bawang dan cili padi yang dihiris halus. Sedap makan panas-panas dengan cili sos.

HALF BOILED EGG ON TOAST


Good Morning All, today for breakfast I had half boiled eggs with Toast a Kopitiam Way. This is my daughter's favorite, half boiled eggs on a toasted bread. It's also coffee shop favorite breakfast menu. A simple breakfast but tricky to get a perfect half boiled eggs done properly. I learned to make this from Ayee, a Chinese Coffee Shop lady. Important of getting the eggs done perfectly is to make sure you use hot boiling water and drop cover the eggs for 3-5 minutes. Water must be really boiling water. For the bread I used Hainan White Bread. 

ENJOY this healthy breakfast of mine.
_________________________________________________________________________

Telur Setengah Masak Atas Roti Bakar, kegemaran anak saya Tyca. Selalu minta breakfast ni tapi saya malas hendak buat..bukan apa kadang-kadang tak jadi...susah juga hendak dapatkan telur setengah masak yang bergoyang-goyang atas roti. Tapi kali ini dengan petua Ayee dari Kopitiam favorite saya di Penang, saya belajar pertuanya. Rendam telur dalam air mendidih selama 3-5 minit. Guna mangkuk dan penutup. Alhamdulillah menjadi kali ini dan cantik pula. Dah siap toast dan telur ini jangan lupa sediakan garam halus dan lada sulah..ini pelengkapnya. Untuk roti pula saya guna roti putih Hainan. Roti ini sudah siap dibuang tepinya, memang lembut roti dan cukup sedap bila dibakar.

GHEE PINEAPPLE TARTS





Speaking about Pineapple Tarts, we all differ in opinion as to what makes a good pastry. Some likes the pastry firm and biscuit-like, some likes it firm but yet tender, and some likes it crumbly and melt-in-the mouth.  So which is your preferences? If you love the melt-in-the-mouth type, I just like to share with you the recipe that I discovered during the recent "Raya Open House" spree. Try add 2 tbsp of ghee to your pastry..you can see, feel and taste the different. I got this secret recipe from a friend of mine. Her tarts were fantastic melt-in-the-mouth type and as you can see above were the verdict of my experiment. Awesome!!!

250 g butter / 250 g mentega
2 tbsp ghee / 2 sdb ghee
1tsp salts / 1 sdt garam
450 g flour / 450 g tepung
1 egg yolk / 1 kuning telur
2 tbsp icing sugar / 2 sdb gula ising.

Combine butter and ghee./ Satukan ghee dan mentega
Combine flour and salts / Satukan tepung dan garam
Beat butter mixture with sugar.  Add egg yolk. Whisk and add in flour to form soft dough./Pukul mentega dan gula. Kemudian masukkan telur kuning. Kacau sebati dan masukkan tepung. Gaul rata sehingga terbentuk doh yang lembut.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Bercakap tentang tart nenas, paling penting untuk mendapatkan tart yang enak bergantung kepada, satu inti nenasnya dan yang kedua pastrinya. Selalunya akan terdapat perbezaan tentang pastri yang baik. Ada yang suka pastri seperti biskut, ada suka yang lembut dan ada juga suka yang gebu dan cair di mulut. So bila kita telah membuat pilihan pastri mana yang kita suka, maka kita akan pastikan yang kita menggunakan resipi yang betul supaya mendapatkan hasil yang betul. Jika anda sukakan tart yang pastrinya gebu dan cair di mulut ini adalah salah satu resipi yang saya perolehi semasa menghadiri rumah terbuka seorang teman. Wah...tartnya cukup gebus......memang kena dengan citarasa saya. Saya bernasib baik kerana tuan rumah tidak lokek dan sanggup berkongsi rahsia keenakkan tartnya. Rahsianya ialah 2 sdb minyak sapi disatukan dalam adunan mentega. lain-lain bahan tart adalah sama. Saya baru aje mencubanya dan di atas adalah hasil ujian saya. memang gebus.....

SPICY BEEF SOUP


Spicy Beef soup introduced here is a very simple spicy soup the Mamak's Style. The basic preparation of this soup is by simmering beef in stocks, where spices bag are placed in. I used store bought soup powder from the Mamak's Shop. This soup is so rich in intriguing flavors, vibrant in color and full of tantalizing aromas. You can see the soup look's close to korma, I used fabulous blend of spices. It's so hearty and satisfying. Best with rice or bread.

Don't limit yourself to just beef flesh, you can mix with bone marrow, and other parts of the beef of your preference. These add more flavor to the soup.



Spicy  Beef Soup 

1 kg beef - you can mix with bone marrow and other part of the beef if you like / 1 kg daging lembu boleh dicampur dengan bahagian-bahagian lain jika anda suka
3 potatoes quartered / 2 biji kentang dibelah empat
2 carrots diced / 2 batang carrot dipotong dadu
2 fresh tomatoes quartered /2 biji tomato segar dibelah empat
1 cinnamon stick / 1 batang kulit kayu manis
3 anise star / 3 kuntum bunga lawang
5 cardamon pods / 5 biji buah pelaga
7 cloves / 7 biji bunga cengkih
3 sprig green onions chopped / 3 tangkai daun bawang dan daun sup dihiris halus
fried shallots / bawang goreng
1 blade screwpine leaf / 1 helai daun pandan
2 strig coriander leaves / 2 tangkai daun ketumbar
1.5 litre water or beef stock / 1.5 litre air atau stok daging
1 ladle soup powder or 2 packet from the normal shop / 1 senduk rempah soup daging atau 2 paket rempah sup biasa
salts to taste/ garam secukup rasa.

Ingredients to be grounded
15 shallots / 15 biji bawang merah
7 cloves garlic / 7 ulas bawang putih
2" ginger / 2" halia

Blend all into wet paste and mix with the soup powder / Blend semua bahan dan campurkan dengan rempah sup.

PREPARATIONS

  1. Bring the stock / water  and beef to boil and simmer it./ Rebuskan daging bersama stok dan air.
  2. Wrap the cinnamon stick, star anise, cloves, spices seeds, and coriander stalk in a muslin cloth and tie securely./ Bungkus kayu manis, bunga lawang, cengkih dan buah pelaga dengan kain kasa dan masukkan ke dalam air rebusan daging. Masukkan juga daun pandan dan batang daun ketumbar. Renehkan sehingga daging agak empuk.
  3. Place the wrapped spices into the pot and add in the screwpine leaf, blended ingredients and soup powder. Simmer until beef almost tender./ Masukkan rempah soup yang dibancuh dengan bahan giling. Renehkan lagi sehingga rempah dan sup mesra.
  4. Add in potatoes, simmer for another 20 minutes. Add carrots and salts to taste./ Masukkan kentang dan terus reneh sehingga kentang empuk. Kemudian masukkan karot, garam secukup rasa. Apabila sudah hampir selesai baru masukkan buah tomato.
  5. Sprinkle with fried shallots and chopped green onion while serving / Taburkan bawang goreng dan daun bawang dan daun sup semasa menghidang.


________________________________________________________________


Sup ini memang kaya dengan rempahnya, malah sekali lihat seakan-akan daging masak korma, memang pekat dan cukup berempah. Saya tidak menumis sup ini sebaliknya merenehkan daging dan bahan sup sehingga mesra dan daging benar-benar empuk. Sup-sup seperti ini tidak perlu ditumis kerana dalam proses mereneh, daging banyak mengeluarkan lemak dan akan berminyak.

Saya menggunakan rempah sup yang dibeli dikedai mamak memang cukup special rasa dan aromanya cukup menyenangkan. Untuk membuat sup ini jangan hadkan kepada isi daging aje, kalau hendakkan sup yang mantap masukkan juga tulang-tulang dan bahagian-bahagian daging yang lain. Ini menambahkan kemanisan asli pada sup. Jika suka boleh masukkan kentang,karot dan tomato segar.
