KEEMA PARATHA RECIPE

Keema Paratha Recipe @ treayntrick.blogspot.com

A flat bread stuffed with curried minced meat.

This Keema Paratha is a wonderful recipe made with paratha (flat bread).   There are tons of variations you could do with this paratha.

Am using minced lamb but other meat are equally tasty too.  If you are a vegetarian, replace the meat with tofu, paneer or garbanzo beans.

Instead of using an individual ground spice, go for ready made spice mix like meat curry powder or korma powder if it is available at your place.

Also added cooked green peas for my Keema Paratha that blends so well with minced meat.

BANANA SCONES RECIPE

Banana Scones @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

An egg free  Banana Scones made with regular pantry items and really easy to make.

I have 2 bananas lying on my kitchen counter and need to do something before it turns bad.

After so long, I did not make any scone so  this Banana Scones  are the best option.

The dough was bit sticky but still  manageable.  Am able to shape it into 7 in round onto floured baking pan with my hand.  Place the dough in the middle of the pan, pat on top and run your hand along the edges to give it a nice round shape to the thickness of 3/4 in.

My Banana Scones take exactly  20 minutes to bake but it may vary depending type of oven you are using, so adjust accordingly.

FRIED TEMPEH & POTATO IN SOY SAUCE RECIPE

Fried Tempeh & Potato in Soy Sauce @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Mixed vegetables  dish  consisting of  fried  tempeh and  potato simmered in spicy sweet soy sauce.

One of my son's favorite vegetables, tempeh (fermented soya  bean cake), potato  with loads of bird's eye chili.

Fried Tempeh & Potato in Soy Sauce was extra spicy due to addition of bird's eye chili.  Spices are a matter of individual taste so adapt accordingly.

Adjust the soy sauce and sugar to your liking.  Cut the tempeh and potato into almost equal size for  uniform cooking.  If you choose a healthier option, do boil,  bake or microwave the potato  until done but still nice and firm.

Fried Tempeh & Potato in Soy Sauce is a versatile dish.   In case you run out of potato, easily replace it  with tofu  or sweet potato. For extra crunch and taste,  add some fried anchovies to the above and toss well..

DORAYAKI RECIPE

Dorayaki Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Dorayaki is a popular Japanese pancake sandwich with sweet red bean paste,  eaten for breakfast, as a dessert or snack.

This pancake uses least liquid but more eggs to get those super soft texture.  I rest my batter for 30 minutes  before frying.

The original dorayaki is  sandwiched with red bean paste but I don't have them at the moment so replace it with chocolate and some with  peanut butter and jelly.

Dorayaki Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Since the batter contains sugar and honey, it tends to brown faster.   so you need to watch first few  carefully  and adjust the heat accordingly.

The fluffy and fragrant  little  Dorayaki   turned out so cute and DELICIOUS.   Am going to try next with other fillings such as blueberries, coconut jam (kaya), strawberries and many more.

CHOCOLATE BISCUIT CAKE RECIPE

Chocolate Biscuit Cake Recipe  @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

The easiest and most decadent no bake Chocolate Biscuit Cake made  using crumbled biscuits, cocoa powder. and eggs.

In Italy or Portugal they shaped this dessert into a log  called Chocolate Salami and  a bit of port wine was added in their recipe. For Malaysia it is known as Batik Cake made with milo,  cocoa powder, condensed milk and eggs.  Some uses dark chocolate instead of cocoa powder.

Used brewed coffee  but you can replace it with  cream or milk.

I have shaped mine into a log but you can just pour the mixture onto lined cake or loaf pan.  Cover the pan with plastic wrap before letting it set in  freezer or refrigerator.

Chocolate Biscuit Cake is a great way to use up  leftover biscuit and to transform it into a  wonderful treat for your family and friends.

MUTABBAQ (MURTABAK) RECIPE

Mutabbaq (Murtabak) Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Mutabbaq is a stuffed flat bread originating from Saudi Arabia.  It is now popular in   Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Thailand, Indonesia and India,  The name and ingredients may significantly vary from one country to another.

My Mutabbaq Recipe was stuffed with tuna,  It could be filled with your choice of fillings.  Be it sweet or savory.  It can be enjoyed anytime of the day,  You could use  minced meat or  turns it meatless if you are vegetarian.

When adding liquid or milk to the flour, add in little by little until you get a  soft dough.  Add more milk if needed because it depends on type of flour you use.

When rolling out the Mutabbaq on dusted surface,  make sure it is really thin to ensure  fully cooked  bread and proper balance of dough and filling.

I used my non stick pan to fry these mutabbaq and much less oil but you could use cast iron pan if you have.

MANGO CAKE RECIPE


A homemade Mango Cake made with fresh mango.  Always love to add a fruit in my dessert.   I left with no more mango so unable to use this fruit for topping or as a prop.

Used fresh pureed mango but you can make use of canned one too. Make sure you drain the fruit well.

Adjust the sugar according to the sweetness of the mango, may be you need not use all the amount stated in the recipe.  For richer cake, opt for melted butter instead of vegetable oil.

Mango Cake turned out great without cracks on top.  You can definitely play around with your favorite frosting to dress up this cake.

THE BEST SWEET YEAST ROLLS RECIPE

The Best Sweet Yeast Rolls Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A slightly different way to make a fluffy rolls.  Am curious to know how The Best Sweet Yeast Rolls turned  out after watching a video by Today Food-Tasty..

It starts by mixing flour. sugar. warm milk and melted butter in a mixing bowl.  No kneading at this stage, cover and let rise for 60 minutes.

After the dough has risen, add baking powder, salt and additional flour little by little. Stir the dough together with your rubber spatula or wooden spoon. The dough is super sticky. Roll out on heavily floured surface into a rectangle, apply butter and sprinkle with brown sugar (I used orange colored one).   Equally cut into 10 slices.  Roll each into a ball and place onto a greased baking pan.

Original recipe is called Homemade Cinnamon Rolls but  I  change my mind and shape them into a round ball.

The Best Sweet Yeast Rolls turned out PERFECT,  rose beautifully. Amazing taste, worth all my effort.

PENNE PIZZA RECIPE

Penne Pizza Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Another twist to a classic pizza recipe using cooked pasta.

Mostly, it uses spaghetti but I have  replaced it with penne. I think spaghetti is the best choice since it is thinner, easy to clump together and you'll get perfect slice.

There  are so many different type of pasta available in the market   Most common are macaroni, spaghetti, angel hair, bow ties and spiral shaped

My Penne Pizza contains no meat but you could easily add  cooked chicken, sausages or meat with other mixture of vegetables of your choice.

You can use glass dish or cake pan with removable bottom part. This Penne Pizza needs a plenty of tomato/ spaghetti sauce, cheese and right balance of spices to become a tastiest one pot meal so adjust accordingly to your preference.

MILK BREAD ROLLS RECIPE

Milk Bread Rolls Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A fluffy Milk  Bread Rolls that are  a treat for your breakfast or in between snack,

Another project on yeast bread, I made these Milk Bread Rolls that was slightly differ from my regular method.

Normally used instant yeast, added directly to the flour but this time, dissolved it in water together with sugar, the same way you did with active dry yeast.

If you intend to make use of active dry yeast,   add  a quarter teaspoon more =  1 1/4 teaspoons.

Kneading is another vital part of making bread if kneading by hand, you have to do it for at least 8-10 minutes until it is elastic and smooth.

Am so glad these Milk Bread Rolls turned out great, I love to dunk it in my coffee.

CHEESY QUICK BREAD RECIPE

Cheesy Quick Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

This mix and bake Cheesy Quick Bread was a nice change from a regular sweet treats I have baked.

Am a fan of quick and easy bread that can be whipped up for less than an hour.  Never used cheese in quick bread so this is my first trial.

Most of the recipe called for cheddar or other sharp tasting cheese but I only have cream cheese so make use of that. Only added half the amount of cheese required.

Since this is a savory bread, added only a tablespoon of sugar.  You may add more for a sweeter version.

This Cheesy Quick Bread turned out great, my kids loved it and the best part it is super easy to make.
