Hello...I am going to write this recipe in Bahasa Malaysia as requested by some of my friends.

300g ayam cincang (boleh guna mana2 daging)
1 biji  bawang besar, di parut halus
1 biji putih telur
3 sudu besar tepung sagu
1 sudu besar lada hitam
sedikit gula
garam secukup rasa

1. Campurkan semua bahan. Gaul rata.
2. Dengan menggunakan plastik aiskrim, isi daging ke dalam nya.
3. Padatkan dan ikat. Jangan terlalu panjang. (sila lihat contohnya). Kemudian, cucuk di sekeliling plastik tadi menggunakan toothpick (supaya mudah utk menanggalkan nya nanti).
4. Kukus menggunakan api sederhana. Jangan guna api terlalu besar. Kukus sehingga masak.
5. Bila sudah masak, keluarkan dan sejukkan sedikit.
6. Gunting plastik dan keluarkan perlahan-lahan. Ketepikan.
7. Panaskan kuali non-stick dan cairkan 2-3 sudu mentega atau marjerin, ikut suka.
8. Goreng sosej tadi dengan api sederhana.
 9. Jangan guna teknik deep frying kerana sosej akan menjadi berminyak.

Senangkan...(hopefully my BM is ok)...sila lah mencuba!

Fried Chicken with Orange Sauce

My son really loves Lemon Chicken. He likes the sweet and the smell of the chicken. So I have an idea. Instead of using lemon, I used orange as the sauce. I did not use fresh orange juice. This is an easy dish and you'll love the taste.

300 g chicken breast, sliced 
salt to taste

Coating for the chicken:
3 tbsp flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp soda bicarbonate
1 egg
1 tbsp of water
pepper/black pepper

3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp orange cordial ( I use Cosway Mandarin Orange )
2 tbsp water

For the chicken: (Deep fry)
1. Sift the flour together with baking powder and soda.
2. Lightly beat the egg and mix with water.
3. Heat oil.
4. Dip chicken pieces into the egg mixture and roll them in the flour. Fry.
5. Set aside.

The sauce:
1. Heat pan and melt butter. Add a little oil. 
2. Add in the orange cordial and mix well. Add some water. (If the cordial you are using is not thick, you can add some cornflour+water)
3. Add the chicken and mix well. 
4. Ready to be served!

Selamat mencuba!!

Pyramid Cheese Cake

Thanks to my sister Angela, this cake has been our family's favourite for years now. It's easy to make and this cheese cake does not need to be baked.Just simply put it in the fridge overnight. Here is the recipe:

250 g Philadelphia cream cheese
125 g buttercup (don't use other butter, this butter suits the cheese well)- room temperature
2 small cans of Nestle Reduced Cream
1 cup of sugar
2 packets of marie biscuits (use the small types,preferably the Cap Ayam Biskut Marie)
3 tbsps sweetened condensed milk, mix with 1 glass of warm water

1. Cream the cheese and butter together. Mix well. (use mixer)
2. Add in sugar, beat well.
3. Next, add in the reduced cream and beat until creamy. Set aside.
4. Get your baking pan, cover with aluminium foil. (so it will be easy for you to lift the cake later)
5. First layer, around 2 -3 scoops of the cream cheese mixture.
6. Then, dip the marie biscuits in the warm milk (not too long) and arrange them on top of the first layer. For the next layer, cover the biscuits with cream cheese mixture( not too thick).
7. Keep continuing to layer the mixture and the biscuits (don't forget to dip the biscuits).
8. Cover and chill it overnight.

It really tastes good if you eat it when it's cold.
