Of Rice Mishap!!!
Frankly speaking Cik Ngah ni, is not very knowledgeable in terms of rice types and category - yang mana ok dan tidak! Only 3 types of rice yang Cik Ngah pernah beli utk stock kat rumah: - Faiza Basmathi Moghul, Faiza Basmathi and Faiza Herba Ponni. Bila pi kedai yang tak der jual antara beras ni , Cik Ngah dah tak tahu nak beli yang mana!
Last Friday 21st Jan, Hubby request untuk masak hari tu, kebetulan balik awallah jugak! Since the rice is out of stock and also on Sunday Cik Ngah was planning to cook Nasi Arab for Cik Ngah's sister, Cik Ngah suggest kat Hubby to buy rice sekalilah. At first Hubby had asked me to just cook vegetable soup and buy fried rice from the nearby stall.
Since the intention was to buy things for cooking vegetable soup, Hubby stop at 'kedai barang basah'. I went straight to rice sections, however I could not find any familiar brands. So I proceed to the next similar shop nearby. Tak der jugak...so I opted for basmathi rice with another brand - Jasmine.
At home while waiting for the rice to cook, Cik Ngah prepared the vegetable soup. So that nite the menu were fried rice and vegetable soup. When the rice was ready, I noticed that the rice tidak seperti basmathi yang pernah cik ngah guna..macam berpulut sikit...Arghhhh. Okay tak per, may be sebab salah sukatan air kot!!
On saturday morning, Cik Ngah cooked Nasi Lemak! and guess what..Nasi Lemak pun tak jadi! Tak best! Sunday Cik Ngah cooked nasi arab pulak..pun tak berapa jadi - lembik dan macam berpulut!!! Arghh...Tak sukanya...So now what to do? Nak kena habiskan beras yg 5 kilo tu dulu baru boleh beli yang lain!!! Tensionnya...
Of Choux Pastry Mishap!!!
On Sunday jugak Cik Ngah buat choux pastry - creme puff punya pastri tu!! Before this dah pernah buat without any problem. That nite before buat Vanila Cream Filling, this one Cik Ngah never did. Kira first time try ler...it turn out marvelous, lemak berkrim dan tak manis sangat. Before this Cik Ngah just use whipping creme to fill in the choux pastry and eat with chocolate sauce - these type, they were called profiteroles!
