My cheating guide to Crème caramel


In my previous post on how to make Crème caramel, I was given the original recipe to make it right from scratch.

But being hopeless and malas, so here I come with a new post on how to make crème caramel in shortcut.

So, what you need this time - of course - a Caramel mix

I bought this one in Abu Dhabi, it is sooo cheap over there, it costs me only around RM1 for this box. Menyesal tak beli banyak2... cos it is actually quite nice and sooo easy to make. All you need is the mix and 500ml of fresh milk.

Inside the mix you should have two sachet, one is the sugar and the other is the mix

Start with heating the milk (btw for this particular mix I need 500ml but you should check on the box of the one you buy to know how many ltrs of milk you need).

heat in low fire tau

When it is lightly boiled, add in the mix

kacau- kacau.... kasi mix well

When it is lightly boiled, turn off the fire.

Prepare the bowls. I am opting for small bowls so that I dont have to eat all in one go. My Fluff tak suka makan, so kena makan sorang2 huhuhu

Put in bit of the sugar/syrup in the bowl

Then add in the creme caramel on top

Finally, keep cool. I put it in the fridge... cepat and ready to eat in 20 mins.

Ayam Goreng Kunyit


Okeh, hari ini mari kita memasak Ayam Goreng Kunyit.

The beauty of ayam goreng kunyit is that it is an extremely easy dish to make, and it is very flexible, in the sense that you can basically mix and match the add-on ingredient to accompany the ayam.

For today's recipe, I am accompanying it with Potato(my all time favorite), baby corn and carrots.

Ok so basically what you need, is of course la ayam. Cut it into really small pieces, like bite sizes.

Put a bit of turmeric powder and salt

And mix it well macam kat bawah ni.. you know like as if you are going to do ayam goreng

Put the ayam aside to let mix well, then work on other ingredient.

A few onions, garlic and ginger.

Slice thin. Separate out the sliced big onion, cos that will go in later towards the end.

Slice thin baby corn and carrots. You could have them in small cubes as well if you like, ikut suka

and lastly, potato. I sliced them and fry them first separately. After it is cooked, take it out and put aside.

Start with cooking the chicken, once it is slightly cooked, add in the onion, garlic and ginger

When the onion is yellowish, and fragrant, add in the baby corn and carrots

Mix them well, then add in the sliced large onion. Add in salt to taste

And finally just before you take it out, add in the potato that was already cooked earlier.

Thats it! easy peasy.
