ORANGE CHOCOLATE MUFFIN RECIPE

Orange Chocolate Muffin Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

After a long gap, I have baked a muffin recipe.  This  Orange Chocolate  Muffin  was a easy and make ahead so they can be served for morning breakfast,.

Always prefer to bake a muffin or quick bread  to serve my family for their first meal of the day.   They are exceptionally easy, mostly stir and fold method, no mixer needed.

You can include any fruit available at home add chopped nuts if you like, I have added chopped walnut for topping.   These portable snack can be stuffed in your kid's lunch box instead of store bought ones.

Chopped chocolate bar is being used here but semi sweet chocolate chips work as well.

Orange Chocolate Muffin does not use butter but still they turned extremely moist.

JACKFRUIT QUICK BREAD RECIPE

Jackfruit Quick Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

An easy recipe of quick bread using tropical fruit, jackfruit.

As I have a balance of jackfruit, am thinking what to make out of this  fruit  which  was rich in dietary fiber, minerals and antioxidants.

Jackfruit has a  intoxicating aroma  and a seed,  Before baking, Jackfruit Quick Bread,  remove  the seeds then chopped into small chunks.  I only used a cup since that was what I have.

Also opt for lesser sweet version by adding half a cup of sugar.  The batter is a bit thicker but don't worry it baked to perfection in 50 minutes flat.   You may check the  Jackfruit Quick Bread  after 50 minutes using a cake tester.

If you;re a vegan, replace butter with oil,  and  eggs with  2 mashed banana or 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce.

If you like nuts, add about half a cup of chopped walnut or pecan.

EASY FISH CURRY RECIPE

Easy Fish Curry Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Fish curry is one of the most loved dish in Singapore especially fish head.

While there are variations  of fish curry originated from each state of India, mostly they used fresh spice mix unlike here, we used a ready made fish  curry powder (masala) that  was available in  the market.

During the olden days, we  have to get our own coconut milk by squeezing fresh grated coconut with water then strain.  But that was a thing of the past since a tetra pack coconut milk is being used now.

With hectic and busy lifestyle, most  women go for a quick and readily available ingredients.  Even now, you could find semi cooked  fish curry.  No peeling or grinding of  onion etc, just open the packet, heat it and add fish slices.    Your meal are ready in minutes.

My Easy Fish Curry did not use coconut milk but you could include about a cup of coconut milk if you like.  Also if you like sourish curry, add a bit more tamarind.

Besides taken with rice, this Easy Fish Curry goes well with flatbread, dosa or bread.
