LEMON CHICKEN RECIPE

Lemon Chicken Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A semi dry dish of chicken fillet drenched in a sweet and sour sauce.

If you are looking for a quick and tasty meal that had a wonderful flavor, this Lemon Chicken is the right choice.

I used boneless chicken cut into strips.  Then coat the cleaned chicken with turmeric and salt.  Fry them until half done.  You can avoid frying them by adding the chicken straight to the wok after  the onion turns translucent.

Adjust the amount of  fresh red, green and bird's eye chili according to your preference.  The Lemon Chicken was fairly a dry dish but  add more water if you want more gravy.

Did you notice that most of the ingredients require slicing.  But to make it time saving, you could consider blending  onion, ginger, garlic and all the chili into  a coarse paste.

BLUEBERRY YOGURT CAKE RECIPE

Blueberry Yogurt Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Extremely moist and loaded with blueberry.  This  Blueberry Yogurt Cake  was  super easy to put together

I made it healthier by using whole wheat flour to the ratio of 1:1, one cup plain flour and 1 cup of whole wheat flour.

For a richer cake, you could sub oil for butter.  But I prefer to use canola oil for this recipe.

Yogurt is nutritious and eating it regularly will boost your health  especially the one without sugar and artificial flavors.  It contains most nutrients your body needs.  High in protein, calcium and trace minerals.

Be cautious with yogurt intake if yo have lactose intolerance or a milk allergy.

Actually you can make this Blueberry Yogurt Cake with just one  bowl and no mixer required.   Let me show you how to do it.

1.  Whisk together both flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.

2.  Make a well in the center, break the eggs, beat lightly, add in oil. yogurt, vanilla  and sugar.   Give this liquid a good mix using a  whisk.

3,  Using a spoon, mix together dry and wet ingredients until well incorporated.  Mix in blueberry. Stir well.

The batter is now ready to be spooned into a greased pan and bake.

Am so glad this cake turned  great  with  beautiful golden color and  the blueberries are well distributed over the entire cake. .

CRANBERRY RAISIN BREAD RECIPE

Cranberry Raisin Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A quick bread laden with cranberries and raisin.  I always love to bake this Cranberry Raisin Bread that was easy and super delicious to  have for breakfast.

Cranberries need to be chopped then soak in boiling water together with raisin, sugar, baking soda  and butter for at  least 30 minutes.

Alternatively you can  bring it  to a  boil, add in  cranberries, raisin butter and sugar.  Mix in baking soda, let stand for 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and it is ready to go the oven.

Cranberries Raisin Bread rose perfectly and so moist.  They are  best served warm in thick slices with your favorite drink.

Semolina/Rava Vada Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A deep fried  savory  doughnut  made with semolina, onion, yogurt, cumin seeds and ginger.

If you are looking for a quick and without fermentation of dough, this  Semolina / Vada Vada is a perfect choice.

I have rest the dough for 30 minutes before frying also added  freshly ground black pepper but this is optional, you may omit it altogether.

Running out of green chili so have used red chili instead.

Because of  the  dough was very sticky, my Semolina / Rava Vada did not have a smooth round shape, nevertheless it tasted terrific!

TAFTAN BREAD RECIPE

Taftan Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Taftan or taftoon  is a  leavened bread  hailed from Persia,  baked in a clay oven.

I  discover this flatbread while watching a cookery show on television,   I  did some research. found out that it  could be made without yeast with just water. milk or yogurt salt and whole wheat flour.   My Taftan Bread  recipe adapted  from various sources use yeast, milk and oil.

The dough was really sticky and hard to shape.  You can add some flour by a tablespoon but not too much otherwise it turns really hard.

On a floured board, roll out each ball into a circle.  thin it out  so the edges are thicker. Prick the dough  with fork leaving the sides.

I can't believe how much better this  Taftan Bread  tastes than takeaway flatbread, even my hubby wanted more!.

BRAIDED CINNAMON BREAD RECIPE

Braided Cinnamon Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Made from scratch,  this  Braided  Cinnamon Bread just got even better in shape and  taste.

You can also use this basic recipe to make a regular cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls,  sweet bun, monkey bread,  breakfast rolls and many more.  Simply  filling and shaping the base dough differently can result an entirely new product.

I have cut the dough  into  2 after shaping them into a log or you can easily turn it into one bigger loaf.

It smells wonderful while baking because of the addition of cinnamon.  The dough was easy to work with,   no additional flour required for mixing the dough.

Though my shaping wasn't  great but this Braided Cinnamon Bread is one of the best cinnamon rolls I ever made!

LEMON YOGURT CAKE RECIPE

Lemon Yogurt Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.bkogspot.com

Super easy, quick and delicious Lemon Yogurt Cake  made with lemon zest, lemon juice and  and   topped with lemon frosting.

This cake uses vegetable oil and not butter as compared with other recipes.  At first, am reluctant to try it since it contains  high sugar in the cake plus for the frosting.

Surprisingly this Lemon Yogurt Cake has a right amount of sweetness and the best part was the frosting, it gives a wonderfully lemon  flavor. This will be my new to go recipe.

AGAR AGAR GUDIR RECIPE

Agar Agar Gudir Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


A popular dessert during  fasting month made with agar agar powder and  coconut milk.

This Agar Agar Gudir tastes even better with addition of  gula melaka (palm sugar),  If using this sugar you need not add any coloring at all.

Bought a red color agar2 powder so I use white sugar.  Make sure to purchase a colorless pack if you intend to add palm sugar.

The secret to a perfect Agar Agar  Gudir are:

1.  Sugar must be dissolved completely and it should be rolling boiling before you add coconut,

2,  After adding  egg mixture, it should be boiled until  the eggs curdle into  tiny bits.  This would make your Agar Agar  into 2 layers and looks very pretty.

BAKED VEGGIE SAMOSA RECIPE

Baked Veggie Samosa Recipe  @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A healthy version of  classic Samosa stuffed with fresh vegetables, made from scratch.

This famous fried snack from Indian subcontinent  are well liked and enjoyed around the globe.   Mostly they are deep fried and stuffed with vegetarian or non vegetarian fillings.

If you are looking for  an alternative way to eat them, this Baked Veggie Samosa is the solution.  These are stuffed with fresh vegetables  I  have on hand, capsicum, carrot, potato and tomato.

When mixing the dough, add water little by little.  You may not need to add the specified amount as per the recipe.

I did not boil the potato before hand but straight away add them to the spices and sprinkle with some water to let them become tender..

My Baked Veggie Samosa turned  out amazing, pastry is wonderful with crisp crust.   This one is a keeper!.

QUICHE BREAD CUPS RECIPE

Quiche Bread Cups Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A delightful mini bite made with bread slices, can  be  filled with all sorts of yummy filling.

Made these  Quiche Bread Cups with white sandwich bread but you could choose other type of bread too.

Use microwave to warm up the bread,  if you don't  have a microwave oven, you may steam them.   This procedure makes the bread soft and easy to shape without tearing.

This time I  chose capsicum and tomato plus a hint of chili powder to lift the flavor but feel free to include other vegetables and other spices you prefer.

Other add in I would suggest are cooked chicken, bacon or tuna.  If you love cheese, you may add a quarter cup of shredded cheese over the top of these  Quiche Bread Cups.
