PERFECT BLUEBERRY PANCAKE RECIPE

Perfect Blueberry Pancake Recipe  @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


This  Perfect Blueberry Pancake was super easy and  fail proof.  You can also make it ahead,  store in a fridge and make them fresh at the time of serving.

You can also check my Banana Pancake w/Brown Sugar Syrup. or savory Semolina and Oatmeal Pancake or Onion Pancake for a change.

This  versatile pancake  can be made with other flours too, adding  fruits like apple, strawberry, pear or pineapple.

For best result, allow the batter to rest for 15 minutes  before frying them.

I used 1/4 cup measure to make this Perfect Blueberry Pancake,  so get about 9 pancakes.

FRIED BANANA W/CHOCOLATE RECIPE

Fried Banana w/Chocolate Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Super tasty treat made of  banana.   This Fried Banana w/Chocolate is dipped in coating batter, fried  then drizzle with chocolate. The combination  works better than you  might expect. these sweet and juicy  dessert  taste even better  when served hot.

I used ripened banana, slice it diagonally.  It is best to slice it last    to avoid discoloration.

After mixing the batter, you could add one or two tablespoon more water if it is too thick.  The batter should be the  right  consistency to coat the banana well.

Instead of deep frying, I prefer to shallow fried them as not to  waste so much oil.  Always avoid re-using the same oil.

Fried Banana w/Chocolate turned out  awesome.  We clean up the whole batch immediately.  Eating them on their own was delicious but with chocolate. it tastes even better!

STOVETOP RAISIN BREAD RECIPE

Stow Top Raisin Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A quick raisin bread made over the stove top.  If you are away from your oven or your oven was no longer working. you  should check out this Stovetop Raisin Bread to continue enjoying your favorite bread.

To bake bread without oven,  the following utensils could be used:
Saute pan
Deep pot
Dutch oven
Pressure cooker
Skillet
Wok

Whatever utensil you choose,  make sure to have  sufficient space for  distribution of heat and even cooking.  That means after putting a loaf pan or cake tin. it has a gap between the sides and top of pan before putting the lid on.

Another important measure to consider, avoiding the bottom part to get burned.  Either put a layer of salt or  trivet, pot holder rack/or ceramic plate before putting the pan.

I baked my Stovetop Raisin Bread using 36 cm wok Layer the bottom with salt before putting the loaf pan.

The downside of the method was that your can't get golden brown color top  as you get using conventional oven.

CHICKEN PAPRIK / AYAM PAPRIK RECIPE

Chicken Paprik/Ayam Paprik Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A combination of chicken and vegetables stir fried  in spicy sauce. .

I used to buy this Chicken Paprik when I lived in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur few years ago.   Am craving to eat my favorite chicken dish now..

As always a store bought has very small portion and very little veggies.  It is so satisfying to cook Chicken Paprik in your own kitchen with your choice of vegetables and sauces.

You may include long bean as well but I don't like it so  exclude  them from my recipe.  Reduce  the water if you prefer a fairly dry ones.

It  is entirely up to you to increase or decrease the amount of sauces added including the chili paste and bird's eye chili.

GROUND BEEF & TOMATO SOUP RECIPE

Ground Beef  Tomato Soup Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A nutritious   meat and tomato soup flavored with curry powder, onion, garlic and  ginger.

You cam  make this Ground  Beef  & Tomato Soup with chunks of beef or mutton  and slow cooked for hours.  But I want a quicker way so prefer to use ground meat.

There is no right or wrong to use your own preferred spices for making this Ground Beef & Tomato Soup.  This time I use  a  ready made chicken curry powder or mix your own consisting of coriander powder, chili powder, cumin and turmeric.

It was rather thick, you may add more water for  extra  gravy.  If desired, other vegetables like carrot, potato  or other beans could be added too. .

Yogurt Rolls Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

A soft and fluffy Yogurt Rolls to kick start your day. Am addicted to bread baking and always on  look out to try out new recipe.

After long time, I have baked a bread using yogurt like this  recipe.    But this time  using  butter and lesser time to knead the dough.  The dough was very sticky so you need to add 1-2 tablespoon of flour to knead them.

To shape it, divide dough into 6 equal portion.  Roll each portion into a smooth ball.  Yogurt Rolls can be shaped into one big loaf as well.    .

I don't mind  to wait more than  2 hours  because in the end  we have these gorgeous rolls to enjoy!

TOMATO FISH RECIPE

Tomato Fish Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A different fish  gravy that uses a  lot of onion and tomatoes.  Tomato Fish  is a milder version and was slightly thicker than  regular  fish curry.

It is better to use a meaty white fish with less bones like red snapper, toman, thread fin, sea bass and many more.  You can  buy a whole fish then request the the stall to slice it for you.

After cleaning, the fish is coated with  lemon juice, chili powder and turmeric before it goes to frying pan for shallow frying.

Nest step, we are going to prepare the sauce by frying onion until it turns soft, adding chili powder  as per your liking  and turmeric. Add in tomato  and cooks until it  is mushy. this will take about 10 minutes. Top with water and bring to  a boil.

After the sauce is thicken, slide in the fried fish.  Allow to simmer for a few minutes before removing from heat.  Tomato Fish is ready to be served with  steaming hot rice or chapati.

BROWN SUGAR PULL APART BREAD FROM SCRATCH RECIPE

Brown Sugar Pull Apart Bread From Scratch @ treatntrick.blogspot.com
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Made with dough balls from sweet bread coated with brown sugar and butter sauce.

After long gap, I have made this Brown Sugar Pull Apart Bread From Scratch  aka Monkey Bread from scratch,  you can find  my previous recipe here .

You can use bundt pan or loaf pan for baking this bread.  If you're not a sweet person, omit the sauce to add  cheese, garlic, bacon, jalapeno or  buffalo  chicken.

This time I choose different method to make it.  My Brown Sugar Pull Apart Bread From Scratch  eliminates a step of rolling the dough balls.  Is this save your time a bit?  Divide the sauce into 3,  first portion goes to the base of the pan.  Second one, pour over after layering  the balls and last one, spoon over the last layer of dough balls.

The dough was very sticky but did not add any additional flour and it yields a fluffy and soft bread indeed.

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. .

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.
