Cendol House | Taman Mutiara, BM, Penang

We had our lunch at cendol house on last weekend. Before that, we passed by this shop house but never give them a try. Since they claimed that "We served best cendol in town", so we give it a try. This shop not only sell cendol, but also laksa, nasi lemak, nasi kunyit with curry chicken. Two of us ordered one each to try. Cendol is ok but this small bowl cost RM2. Santan (coconut milk) taste is not very thick but when mix with brown/coconut sugar syrup, it tasted good. Ingredients in cendol include red bean and cendol.

Homemade Yakitori 焼き鳥 | Japanese Skewered Chicken

I would like to share a very simple dish that I cooked yesterday, homemade yakitori. Yakitori (焼き鳥) is a Japanese type of skewered chicken. It is made from few bite-sized chicken meats, skewered on a bamboo skewer over charcoal.  

 

Japan Instant Cup Rice

It is not healthy to eat instant noodle, I know. It does not contain nutrision and not good for digestion too. I try to avoid eating it but once a while, I think no problem. One night, when I shop for my dinner at nearby convenient store, I can't find any bento available. At that time, I found instant cup noodle rice which was quite special. I bought one and bring back apartment for my dinner on that night. It is rather convenient and fast to cook. Just add water to the cup rice and cook it in microwave oven. You can consume it after 2 minutes. Inside the cup rice, it has dried egg, dried shrimp, shallot and dried meat. It also came with a pack of sauce oil for you to mix with the rice after cook. So, if you do not want to eat instant noodle, you can try instant rice. Next post, I would like to share about making your own cup noodle. You can choose what ingredients to put in your cup noodle and what soup base you like. Stay tune!

Kaya_11"kaya" is a jam made with coconut milk (santan), sugar and eggs. Pandan leaves are added during cooking process to bring more fragrance to the jam.

I have this homemade kaya recipe from my mother while she made kaya jam last Sunday. The ingredients used are very simple but I was impressed with her patient during the cooking process. It was really time consuming to make the delicious kaya. You need to stir the mixture continuously during the cooking process in order to get the smooth texture kaya.

If this time consuming version does not suit you, go for this version, which only required less than 30 minutes to get your kaya jam ready.

Let's go into the ingredients and cooking method now.


Ingredients:
10 eggs
900g sugar
1kg coconut milk
pandan leaves (wash)

9. Serve with bread or biscuit as you like.

The whole process took about 4 hours. Patient and hardwork are needed to make it successful. I believed most of the people will rather buy it outside. Tongue out But, I did appreciate the time and effort that mom spent to make the delicious kaya jam for her family. Thank you mom Kiss ! It was soooooo delicious and "sweet". Wink

Hi Phyllis, thanks for dropping by. According to mom, it is necessary to ladle the mixture into a bag first if you want your kaya to have a smooth texture.

Hi, I am so excited to have found this recipe! Thank you for posting it! I remember my aunties making this and have wanted to make it myself.

I noticed that in one of the photos, the jam seemed to be ladled into a bag? Can you tell me if that is necessary to do?

Thank you

Hi

I would like to know when you double boiled the kaya, in step 8,

1) do you cover the pot with the kaya and also the double boiled pot?
2) how long do you double boiled it?
3) do you open it regularly to stir it?

Looking forwad to your answers.

TQ.
