Motif Dadar

Its unbelievable how time flies today.. I woke up at 5am (tks to our morning diet of cereal/milk, dates and orange juice) and right after morning prayer I went back to bed.. woke up again in time bef hb went to work and since then I hv been awake.. now its nothing out of ordinary yah.. its just that do u ever wonder how on earth we manage to go thru our days without even feeling hungry and thirsty during fasting month?? Shukran :o)

This year once again Hairi is not with us to celebrate first day of Ramadhan.. last night he called and asked if we will be having our iftar with the family and if his grandmama was gonna cook Rawon (typical in our family.. first day iftar is at mom's and the dishes are always Rawon, bagedil, tempeh, rendang, paru, sambal tumis sotong, sambal goreng and not forgetting sambal belacan) and when i told him its gonna be Rawon he goes.. "Oh mannnnnn..." .. awww poor boy..

Sis Wati, Sis Lyn, BIL and their kiddies were there too.. gd to see u guys!

So as always I am in charge of the sweet stuff.. I took along cat tongues for the kids.. I prepared two types of kuih dadar.. I baked marble banana muffins again... glad everyone loves it!

150g flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
25ml suji leaves n pandan leaves water (I omitted n added 1/2 tsp of pandan paste)
400ml coconut milk (200ml KARA + 225ml water)
1 tsp melted margarine (I used unsalted butter)

Sieve flour and add salt
Mix egg and coconut milk
Pour coconut milk mixture into flour mixture and continue to mix till batter is smooth
Take 1/4 batter and pour it into piping bag - set aside
To the rest of the batter add pandan & suji leaves water
Heat up a non-stick pan, brush the pan with a bit of oil, pipe in plain batter - zig zag or any kinda motive u like.
Pour some pandan batter to the pan and swirl the pan around so that the batter completely covers the base.
Cook the crepe until you see the side is lightly brown and crispy. Flip it over and cook the other side for about 20 seconds. Remove from pan.
Put some filing on the pancake and roll it up like a spring roll. Serve as dessert or for tea time.

Coconut filling:
250 gm. grated coconut
30 gm. castor sugar
100 gm. gula melaka (palm sugar)
30g dark brown sugar (i added)
60 gm. water
1 tsp. cornflour
2 pcs. pandan leaves - cut into small pieces

Cook sugar, gula melaka and water in a wok till sugar melts.
Add in grated coconut and pandan leaves and fry till dry.
Sprinkle cornflour on top and stir till well mixed.
Cool before using.

Dadar Chocolate
150g flour
1/4 tsp salt
400ml milk
1 large egg
1/4 tsp chocolate paste
1 tsp melted margarine

Same as abv

Chocolate filling
40g corn flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
300ml milk
150g sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chocolate paste

Mix all ingredients and cook on low fire till thicken - set aside

Note: I used coconut filling for both Dadar

Selamat attempting yur lapis prune soon....tak tahan dah dok tengok gambarq and telinga berdesing hubby asyok tanya when when when! :)

Rima said...

Hehehe.. our hb ni memang gitew kan.. selagi kita tak try buat selagi tu lah telinga kita berdesing.. tu bukan ape.. they all ni nak kita pertingkat kan "skill" lah kahkahkah.. try ah.. lama lama sure jadi expect one

Dadar is indeed the easiest and fastest kuih that u can prepare.. tak yah nak tunggu sejuk baru boleh potong macam kuih2 talam yg lain :o)

Pergh! Banyak nya lauk. Tapi ramai orang makan tak pe, tak habis tapao lhor.

Saya masak ayam masak merah & sayur campur je untuk kami berempat. Since my eldest son left the nest, semua masak sikit. Tak de orang nak perabih makanan.

Baguskan, masih kekalkan tradisi berbuka dengan keluarga besar.

Pestime tengok kuih dadar berbelang ni, comel dan dah tentu rasanya pun sedap.

Rima said...

Ahhh tu yg danger Ilah.. Selera susah nak disekat bila makan ramai2 hehe

Ain said...
