Been away for ages from blogging. I just need to find my mojo, so I can be a good blogger once more. For the sake of hosting and domain fee, let me start by sharing you my mom’s recipe. Yup, it’s my mom’s, my son’s grandma (but I do believe that she got the recipe from my late grandma, her mother). Ayam Pedas is also known as Ayam Balado. We called it ayam pedas as it is spicy (pedas), though sometimes my mom didn’t make it that hot. My son, loves ayam pedas as much his cousins love it. Everybody loves my mom’s ayam pedas, including our relatives and friends. My son, can eat ayam pedas everyday, three times a day. He never get bored of it and for him, ayam pedas nenek is the best. Funny thing happened...

Back with Jengkol Balado

Posted by on Oct 31, 2013 in Asian Culinary, Featured, Indonesian Culinary, Kitchenette, Mom's Recipe, Vegetarian, West Sumatran Food | 6 comments

Gosh… October will end in 7hours (GMT+7) and I haven’t posted anything. Should I still call my self as a blogger? I don’t think so. I supposed to make a give away last 3 weeks, but suddenly something came up on the way that took the biggest part of my time and mind. Now I’m in a process on making everything right, I hope I’ll get the best result soon. Please pray for me. Thanks. Maybe it’s not a good idea to back in blogging with jengkol, as you know.. some people deny to like it for they are afraid to be called kampungan if they like to eat it. But I believe, jengkol is very popular among us, Indonesians 😉 According Wikipedia, Jengkol has a Latin name Archidendron pauciflorum (synonym A. jiringa, Pithecellobium jiringa, dan P. lobatum)   is...

Ayam Kecap Bango (Kecap Bango’s Roasted Chicken)

Posted by on Apr 15, 2013 in Featured, Kitchenette, Meat and Poultry, My Recipe, Original Recipes | 0 comments

I cooked this roasted chicken almost a year ago when I was abroad, but was lazy to post it. It was an emergency recipe when my son and I were alone at my friend’s house. I wanted to cook something yummy but easy and quick to make, while I had in the kitchen was only chicken. At first I was thinking to make chicken soup, unfortunately some spices were not available at my friend’s kitchen. After checking what kind of spices she had, I decided to create something new by utilizing new variant of Kecap Bango “manis, pedas, gurih” (sweet, hot, umami) I brought from Indonesia.     The result was good. Though the soy sauce was hot yet the end result was acceptable by my toddler son. Now let me share you the recipe, but pardon me for...

Tumis Kohlrabi (Stir Fry Kohlrabi)

Posted by on Nov 29, 2011 in Kid Meals, My Recipe, Original Recipes, Vegetarian | 0 comments

When you live alone with a 23mos toddler, you will be more creative in creating easy and quick recipes, at least this is what has happened to me during our life in Bremen. The one that I will share you the recipe is one of some of those recipes. I just named it Tumis Kohlrabi (Stir Fry Kohlrabi). Actually at first I wanted to cook Sambal Goreng Labu Siam (Chayote cooked in coconut milk) by substituting chayote with kohlrabi as they have similar taste and texture, but both my son and I were so hungry, so I decided to create a simple food from it. I cooked this food together with him. Kareem was uber happy to finally allowed to cook. You can see the videos of him cooking on his page. This simple food from an easy and...
