ALMOND CHOCOLATE COOKIES



These Almond Chocolate Cookies are deliciously simple to make yet are elegant and tasty dessert.

The dough of these cookies can be prepared in advance, keep refrigerated for use the next day. Substitute your choice of nuts for the almonds if needed.

As we grow older, we tend to be more health conscious and avoid taking overly sweet desserts. This is the reason why I resort to make my own rather than buying the ready made cookies that are way too sweet.

BUBUR SUJI / SEMOLINA KHEER

Bubur Suji Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


One of the most popular desserts during Ramadan is this Bubur Suji that was made with semolina, milk and sugar.

It is fairly simple to make  but care should be taken once you've added the semolina to the hot milk. You need to stir constantly to avoid lumps and sticking to the bottom of the pot.

If you're not keen to use the ghee. just dry roast the semolina  until  you get nice aroma also you can bake  the almond  instead of frying.

Bubur Suji is individually served in a small bowl/cup and garnish with raisin and nuts.

It tends to thicken up  as it cools down. No worries, just add some milk or hot water to get the pouring consistency again.

Bubur Suji  can be served either hot or cold.

EGGLESS SEMOLINA CAKE



A fantastic recipe and my family favorite that you can make anytime of the year.  This Eggless Semolina Cake  is a different version of semolina cake that was low in  fat and egg free.

Eggless Semolina Cake  has  a lovely texture that is distinctly different than cakes made with flour. Although it wasn't super soft as a normal cake but it was moist due to the addition of mashed banana.  I will make this again for sure only next time and  will  double this recipe.  I hope others find it delicious too!

Had used canola oil instead of melted butter. If you're allergic to dairy products, soy milk, almond milk or rice milk is a great substitute.

ROTI BOYAN

Fried Roti Boyan Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Roti Boyan (Bawean) is a popular snack made with flaky pastry and stuffed with mashed potato.  It is a sort of cross between a samosa and empanada. It is most probably created by Baweanese  -  they are from an island in East Java, Indonesia.

It is either shaped into round or square, deep or shallow  fried  until crispy and golden. Roti Boyan is usually found and sold at roadside stalls.

Like most pastry recipes, the quantity of liquid is very important so take care  to add the water gradually until a pliable dough is formed.

Another important factor, heat the oil  to the proper temperature and maintain it throughout the cooking process.   If it is not hot enough, it will soak up extra oil.

If you're  allergic to eggs, simply omit them but sprinkle some water to the mashed potato just to bind them.

Also sprinkle some salt when heating the oil.  I noticed  my Roti Boyan   does not absorb excess  oil.
