Cover the pan and let it cook by itself. You may roast the chicken in the oven, if you like. Turn the chicken over after 10 minutes. Wait another 10 minutes and they are ready to be served.

The beef


300g beef - slice wide and thin

Sup lobak putih

Gempak je nama. Lobak putih masak air sebenarnya. Tapi since bukanlah semata-mata direbus, jadi Neeza namakannya sup lobak putih. Lobak putih ni ialah carrot yang color putih. Tak tahu lah tempat lain panggil apa. Layan aje lah ya.


1 batang lobak putih sederhana besar - dipotong bulat
bawang besar ( onion) - 1 biji sederhana besar - hiris halus
bawang putih (garlic) 2-3 ulas - diketuk
ikan bilis (anchovies) 6-8 ekor ditumbuk
lada hitam (black pepper) - 1/2 sudu kecil (tsp)
Air (water)
garam (salt)
gula (sugar)
Minyak (oil)

Cara penyediaan:

Panaskan minyak didalam periuk kecil. Tumis bawang besar yang telah dihiris sehingga terbit baru. Masukkan bawang putih dan ikan bilis. Tunggu sekejap. Jangan pula sampai hangit bawang putih tu. Then, masukkan lada hitam. Masukkan air sesuka hati (tapi jangan lah banyak sangat sampai banjir rumah). Then letak hirisan lobak putih tadi. Masukkan garam dan sedikit gula. Gula ni pengganti encik aji sebenarnya. Tunggu sehingga mendidik. Siap untuk hidangan :).

Mee Jawa version tak cukup bahan

Neeza suka makan mee jawa. Sangat suka sebenarnya tapi tak reti nak buat. Ma pun tak pernah ajar dan tak pernah buat kalau tak silap sebab Ma bukan orang Jawa pun. Jadi, bila nak makan, Neeza g00gle for recipe. Macam-macam version ada. Neeza suaipadan beberapa version dengan apa yang Neeza ada kat rumah ni. Jadinya... inilah Mee Jawa version tak sudah hehee..


Bahan-bahan untuk kuah:

1 biji bawang besar (onion) - perlu di kisar (grind)
5 ulas bawang putih (garlic) - kisar
3 batang serai - kisar
3 sudu cili boh / cili kering yang dikisar
1 inci lengkuas - kisar
1 inci halia - kisar
1/3 cawan udang kering - rendam sekejap dan kisar
3-4 sudu serbuk kari daging
1 biji ubi keledek sederhana besar - rebus dan tumbuk halus
air rebusan daging daripada 200 gram daging

Cara masak:

Bersihkan daging dan rebus. Setelah masak, keluarkan daging dan ketepikan. Simpan air rebusan. Tumis semua bahan yang dikisar sehingga naik minyak. Masukkan serbuk kari dan tunggu sehingga naik minyak juga. Kacau rata. Masukkan air rebusan daging tadi. Masukkan ubi keledek yang telah di tumbuk juga. Kacau rata. Masukkan air lagi sekiranya terlalu pekat. Masukkan garam dan gula. Tunggu sehingga mendidih. Hidangkan.



Mee spagetti
Daging yang telah direbus.
Daun bawang - hiris halus
Daun sup - hiris halus
Cili besar merah dan hijau - hiris halus
Bawang goreng
Telur rebus
lemon - di belah kecil

Cara penyediaan:

Mee tadi perlu direbus sehingga lembut. Semasa merebus, curahkan sedikit minyak masak supaya mee tadi tidak melekat antara satu sama lain. Daging yang telah direbus tadi perlu dihiris halus. Senduk mee didalam mangkuk. Letakkan semua bahan condiments diatas mee dah curahkan kuah keatasnya. Kalau ada taugeh, boleh lah diletak. Neeza takde taugeh. Sayur lain pun takde. Jadi, tak letak lah. Tapi takpe.. Boleh juga dimakan dengan lahapnya hehehe..

Chicken Rice (Nasi Ayam senang gilos)

Whenever I've had no onion left in the kitchen, I could only think of 1 menu - Chicken Rice (Nasi Ayam). It only requires ginger and garlic and chicken of course :). The rest are just side garnish. It won't spoil the Chicken Rice taste if you don't have it. Lets look at the recipe:


4 cups rice
1 whole small chicken - cut into 4 pieces
1 1/2 bulb garlic
3 inch ginger
4 red chillies
3-4 red tomatoes
black soy sauce
lemon juice


Grind garlic and ginger and set aside. Put in chicken in a pot. Pour in water and cooked. Add in 1/2 of the grounded ginger and garlic. Add in salt. Let the water boil and chicken to cook. Take out the cooked chicken and set aside.

Wash the rice and put it in the cooker. Pour in the chicken soup that you have prepared earlier - just enough to cook the rice. Add in 1-2 teaspoon of grounded garlic and ginger in the cooker and stir. Let the rice cook in the cooker by itself.

Grind the red chillies, tomatoes and 2 teaspoons of grounded ginger and garlic. Then, pour it into a pot and cook it for a while. Add in sugar, salt and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Upon boiling, the chilli is ready to be served.

Add the rest of the grounded ginger and garlic onto the chicken. Spill black soy sauce and mix them all. Broil the chicken in the oven for 10-15 minutes. You may also fry the chicken. I prefer baking it in the oven as the ingredients will absorb better.

To make the soup more tastier, add in chopped celery and let it boil again. Serve hot.

To garnish the chicken, you may use tomatoes, cucumber and lettuce.

Happy trying :)

Kuih Karipap (Curry Puff)

Some people call it Curry Puff (english version I guess). Some calls it Karipap (very melayu right!). I prefer to call it Karipap as there's no puff for this kuih at all. It's easy yet require some effort (the effort to knead the dough if you have no food processor). Let's look at the recipe together with the pictures :).

The curry filling


2-3 large size potatoes - dice them small
1/2 cup of blended / ground beef
1 onion
2-3 cloves garlic
1/2 cm ginger
3 tblspn beef curry powder
1/4 cup of chopped chinese celery (daun sup)
3 tblspn oil


Heat up oil. Blend the onion, garlic and ginger. Pour the blended item into the oil. Add in curry powder. Stir and let it simmer. When the oil appear at the top, put in diced potatoes. Add in about 1/2 cup of water. Stir once in a while. When it boils and dries, add in chinese celery. It's cooked when the potato is soft and dry.

Outer layer (the dough)


1/2 kg flour
3 tblspn full margerine (preferrably corn based)
1/2 cup oil
1/2 tspn salt


Mix salt with the flour. Heat the margerine and oil in a pot until medium hot. Pour the oil in the flour and start kneading. Add in water until the dough become soft and easy to roll. Make a small round cirle - the size of 1 cent / a penny out of the dough. Then, roll each round dough using a wood / plastic roller and make it round and flat. Take a tea spoon of curry filling and put in the middle. Fold the layer and attach both layer by making flowery shape (like a screw).
