PLUM HAND PIES USING 2 INGREDIENTS DOUGH

Plum Hand Pies using 2 Ingredients Dough Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
My first trial making this 2 ingredients dough  using  self rising flour and  Greek yogurt.

The dough can be used to make pizza, bread sticks, pretzels and many more.

I choose to turn this  into Plum Hand Pies Using 2 Ingredients Dough.  It comes  together pretty quick but it was damn sticky to work with.

Only  manage to get a decent size of  6 hand pies out of  this recipe.  As I ran out of fresh plums so added some green apple to make up to 2 cups.

My Plum Hand Pies Using 2 Ingredients Dough turned out soft with crisp edges.  Being a tart fruit, plums need more sugar to sweeten but am okay with this filling.

BROKEN GLASS COFFEE JELLY RECIPE

Broken Glass Coffee Jelly Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
After many years, I have prepared this cold dessert but this time with different flavor. .

Using agar agar powder, this Broken  Glass Coffee Jelly was fun to make with proper planning.

It consists of 2 parts, coffee jelly that uses instant coffee in it.  This  coffee part must be prepared first as to allow it to cool and cut into 1/2 in cube.

Used a pack of agar agar powder, divide equally to make this Broken Jelly Coffee Jelly.  Once you have  coffee jelly ready. proceed to make milk mixture.

You can always opt for 2 or more flavors like orange, strawberry, pineapple instead of coffee

During the process, I have discovered a vital step to remove the jelly smoothly.   The secret was to apply a thin coating of vegetable oil before pouring over the cubed jelly.  The 10 x 6 in glass tray was perfect for this recipe.

This Savory Flower Bread is soft, tender and tasty.  It was made with a basic sweet bread.

From the basic  bread dough, it is shaped just like a flower after proofing.  You may want to make your preferred filling either sweet or savory,

I stuffed mine with egg bhurji  (spicy scrambled eggs) and divided into 2.  That means each portion has 8 petals.   Turns into one big loaf that has 16 petals using  10 in pie plate or cake tin. Place 4 in the center, the rest around the tin.

Savory Flower Bread  goes well with egg bhurji, completed it within a day! ,

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A delightful and moist, Easy Sour Cream Cake for our tea-time treat this week.

There are tons of recipe for this cake that was rich and decadent, but sometimes you need just a quick dessert that was  simple and delicious.   That is what this Easy Sour Cream Cake for me,  the perfect easy treat to make. 

For lighter version, opt for oil  instead of butter  As for the topping,  chopped nuts like  walnut, pecan, pistachio, hazelnut  can be added in place of chocolate chips and double the sugar. 1/4 cup brown sugar plus 1/4 cup white sugar.

Despite using just a wire whisk, no-mixer, this cake  produces an incredible result,  tender and no-crack.

CRANBERRY BREAD RECIPE

Cranberry Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Enjoy freshly baked Cranberry Bread  in this tender quick bread.

This delicious bread is made with plenty of dried cranberries and nut free.  Like most of quick bread recipe,  no mixer is needed, it is simply mix and stir all the ingredients.

For successful  quick breads. DO NOT OVER MIX.  Once they are combined,  mix as little as possible.  The mixture will contain some lumps.  The result is a soft, tender, cake-like texture.

Added half a cup of sugar and that was sufficient to sweeten this bread.  You  may add more if you like.  Just add one large egg instead of 2 small one.

Cranberry Bread turns out  wonderfully soft with right amount of sweetness.  It was a cross between cake and bread.  It does not need any frosting, we love to eat them just it is with  a cuppa.

SUPER SOFT DINNER ROLLS RECIPE

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

I have been  baking yeast bread for years now and this Super Soft Dinner Rolls  is  my first bread for the year 2018.

The dough was really sticky,  I can't hardly knead the dough after mixing flour mixture and wet ingredients.

After 1st rising. add butter and extra flour (added about  3-4  tablespoon or more)  to knead the dough until smooth and elastic.

The dough can be shaped in many ways but I just shape it into round ones.  It can also be stuffed with sweet or savory filling or easily turn into one big loaf.

After baking at 180 C for 25 minutes, I got those fluffy and golden brown Super Soft Dinner  Rolls.

My hubby said, they are the best gorgeous dinner rolls I have ever made!

Vegetable Bread Pockets Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Wishing my lovely readers a Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

A tasty snack made with sandwich bread, stuffed with vegetables. These Vegetable Bread Pockets can be customized to your liking.

Other vegetables like capsicum. beans, peas could replace cabbage.  I happen to have cabbage so use that for my filling.

Feel free to add meat  such as a cup of shredded cooked chicken or cooked mince meat if you like,  Don't forget to add extra spices if you use  meat.

I shallow fried my Vegetable Bread Pockets instead of deep frying.  These turned out crispy but soft inside.

Proper sealing is essential to avoid filling leakage,   Make a thick paste of water and plain flour as a sealant.

These yummy pockets go well with tomato ketchup or chutney but we love to eat them as it is, full of beautiful flavors!

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. .

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.
