Coconut Panna Cotta

Panna Cotta? Just in case you don't know, I am assuming as well you don't, panna cotta is the known creamy, classic Italian dessert. Made from cream, sugar, milk and gelatine. Lovely sweet punch for after meal or anytime you long for a dessert, there's various ways how you can further elevate panna cotta. Ice-cream, fresh fruits, canned fruits, whipped cream, so on and so forth, my version of course must be a Malaysian version (Grape Fruit Coconut Jelly, Dragon Fruit Coconut Jelly & Pandan Jelly Coconut Milk). I am, I think I have told you before, a typical Malaysian and I will never compromise our local ingredients for imported ingredients. Unless maybe, once a while, when the dessert matter is a different matter warranted. Otherwise, I so love our? Of course, coconut milk and pandan leaves/screwpine leaves (Pumpkin Pandan Jelly).My desserts too, mostly must be the easy making? Making this Coconut Panna Cotta, scented by pandan leaves and canned fruits/fruit cocktail going atop, I believe is also sort of nothing brain cracking? Alright foodies, I'll see you again next time. Happy sweet pleasure. 
(Pandan/Screwpine leaves)

1 tbsp jelly powder
10 pandan leaves - cut into smaller pieces
200ml/ A box of  thick coconut cream/milk
1 cup carton milk 
1/2 cup sugar
1 can fruit cocktail

Blend/process pandan leaves with coconut cream.
Drain to extract the thick mixture.
Pour in a pot.
Add milk and sugar. 
Stir to heat through (yes, just to heat and not to boil)
Remove from heat.
Mix in jelly powder and pour into mould, any size you prefer.
Cool down and put in the fridge.  
To serve, gently slide panna cotta and atop fruit cocktail with or without syrup.

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
