Lord of The Rings

Surprise? Well folks, this entry has nothing to do with the famous Tolkien's trilogy. Just want to share my Onion Rings recipe -courtesy of (which I came across while looking for recipes for dishes asked by my Tukang Makan. I prepared the rings this morning and they turned out well. Here's the recipe if you feel like trying. And one more thing, I've also used the batter to coat my mushroom and they tasted yummy!

  • 2 large yellow onion (peeled and kept in the fridge for 1-2 hours)
  • 75g flour
  • 2tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • a pinch of paprika
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 egg (well-beaten)
  • 125ml fresh milk
  • oil for deep frying
  • Heat the oil over medium-high heat. Allow it to heat up hot enough to fry, but not to smoke.
  • Slice the onions into 1cm -thick rings. Separate them and place them on a tray.
  • Combine the flour, corn starch, baking powder, paprika, sugar, salt and the pepper in a bowl and with a whisk, stir it together briefly.
  • Add the egg to the milk and whisk together.Then pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and combine it together with your whisk until you are left a smooth batter.
  • Gently dip some of the onions into the batter and coat well. Then place them into the hot oil using a fork. Let them cook in small batches, so they won't stick together. When they are fried on one side, turn them over to fry and brown on the other side. When are they are lightly golden, place onto a tray lined with kitchen paper to drain.
  • Serve hot!

Back to Baking.....

Hello all! Thousand apologies for keeping silent. Even Mr.Boss aka Tukang Makan has noticed that I've not updated my blog for a long, long time. He even suggested me to include reviews on food from the eating places that we always venture for a change( perhaps he thought that I've run out of ideas..hehehehe). Well, frankly, it's not that I've lost interest in cooking and baking and blogging after all. It's just the case of looking for the right mood to start blogging again.

For a start, here's a bread recipe. It's called "Roti Nasi" by Why such name? It's because, one of the ingredients used is cooked rice and as usual, I've adapted the steps in preparing it.The outcome is soft and fluffy. Do give it a try ya!

To make this bread, you will need :
  • 4 g dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp warm water
  • 80g cooked, white rice
  • 100ml water

  • 250g high protein flour ( I used 'Cap Sauh' brand)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp butter
  • Put all ingredients in (A) in a bowl and mix well. Let the mixture turns frothy.
  • Put all ingredients (B) in a blender and soak for 10 minutes. Then, blend till fine.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix well all the ingredients in (C). Then, put mixture (A), (B) and (D) into the bowl. Mix well.
  • Knead until the dough becomes elastic and does not stick to your hand.
  • Leave covered for one hour.
  • Then, punch the dough to let all the air out. Grease a square baking tin with butter/margarine.
  • Shape ito 16 balls and arrange in the baking tin.
  • Let to rest until the dough doubles its size.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 20-25 minutes.
  • Once baked, let to cool. Slice your bread and top with jam of your choice. (I love marmalade!)
