Curry Baked Rice with Tefal Ingenio

Curry Baked Rice with Tefal Ingenio

It’s weekday evening, you want something quick and simple. Nothing too fancy, but not too shabby. Whether it’s just for just you and your partner, or you have asked a friend or two who stays nearby to come by after work for chitchat session, this baked rice recipe will sure be ready in under 30 minutes.

The key ingredient to this recipe is actually the curry paste. Not only it has species in it, but it also contains garlic and onion, allowing you to skip the process of chopping those up. Any brand of the curry paste is fine, go with what you prefer and adjust the flavour accordingly to your spicy level. For me, I enjoy making it from scratch. What I usually do is to blitz up some curry powder along with curry leaves, dried chilis, garlic, onion, ginger, cinnamon powder, salt, pepper, soy sauce and a drizzle of vegetable oil to emulsify everything into a smooth paste and stick it into the fridge. It’s super convenient when your curry cravings kick in or when you have an unexpected guest to impress.

For versatility, I used one of my Tefal Ingenio pans for this recipe. From stir-frying to baking to serving, I have only used one pan, saving me some time and effort when cleaning up later on. That’s the great thing about Tefal Ingenio, it can be used on the hob, in the oven, as a serving plate for a dish and even store leftover food into the fridge.

Each Ingenio set comes with a removable handle which is used across all the pans. And since there is no handle sticking out when you are not using, you could store the pans away easily by stacking it up and tucking it away in a corner of your cabinet.

Blackcurrant (Ribena) Sponge Cake

 

Blackcurrant Sponge Cake with Panasonic Cubie Oven

Blackcurrant Sponge Cake

The reason why I decided to make Blackcurrant Sponge Cake was that I was reminded of Ribena the other day when my friend asked me if I want some Ribena gummy (Blackcurrant Pastilles). Why not recreate a recipe using the flavour of Blackcurrant? That inspired me and hence, the recipe was created. 

When it comes to frosted cakes, I don’t like my slice of cake to have full of frostings.  If you like, you could decorate the entire cake with the blackcurrant cream. The recipe makes just enough to cover the cake. However, I like mine to be decorated just on top of the sponge cake as I don’t like my cakes to be full of cream. Something simple like this is what I crave for my everyday food.

Blackcurrant Sponge Cake with Panasonic Cubie Oven

Blackcurrant Sponge Cake

One good way of decorating a cake is to use white chocolate buttons. It does make it looks more sophisticated as if you got it in a Japanese bakery. Just before serving, sprinkle the top with some icing sugar to give that wow factor! You could even use snow powder instead to prevent it from melting off. If you can’t find snow powder but would still want your icing sugar to last for long, you could blitz some icing sugar and white chocolate in a food processor and use that for dusting. It works extremely well too!

If you don’t like the taste of Blackcurrant, free feel to swap with other flavours of your choice. The recipe is very versatile and simple to make. When the cake is being cut, it reveals that beautiful purple shade of the sponge cake. You will be intrigued to give it a taste!

Matcha Hurricane Swiss Roll Recipe (抹茶飓风瑞士卷)

Matcha Hurricane Swiss Roll Recipe

Matcha Hurricane Swiss Roll Recipe

Hurricane Swiss Roll is essentially a swiss roll that swirls layer that looks like a hurricane and hence the name. It is very popular in Indonesia, and when I first heard from my mum about it (who saw many beautiful pictures from her Indonesian relatives), I told myself that I am going to recreate these beautiful swirls. Luckily, it was fairly simple!

Matcha Hurricane Swiss Roll Recipe

For this recipe, I am pairing up the flavour of Matcha and Cream Cheese as it goes so well together. The bitterness of the Matcha powder complements the tanginess of the Cream Cheese, making it light and refreshing.

Matcha Hurricane Swiss Roll Recipe

Feel free to change the flavour profile to your liking. If you like Chocolate flavour, substitute Matcha Powder with Cocoa Powder. You can even add some melted Dark Chocolate to the Cream Cheese if you want it to be extra chocolaty.  

Matcha Hurricane Swiss Roll Recipe

Matcha Hurricane Swiss Roll Recipe

The recipe is fairly simple to make as long as you are patient. There are a lot of components and waiting time to this recipe. Make this on a lazy Sunday and share it with your colleagues the following Monday! Do serve it chilled! The cream does not stand up very well our hot and humid weather in Singapore. It would not be a good idea for you to bring this on a picnic. However, if you like to, switch up the cream to something more stable like a fruit jam or buttercream.

Min Chiang Kueh (面煎粿) / Apam Balik

Min Chiang Kueh

Min Chiang Kueh (面煎粿), which also can be known as Apam Balik in Melayu is a traditional turnover pancake filled with fillings. It is thought to be common to find these sold on roadside streets throughout Malaysia and Singapore (Well, it’s 2019, you can only get these at a hawker centre now). While it’s fluffier than the American counterpart, Min Chiang Kueh is like the little sister of the Indonesian Martabak Manis, which still holds in place at the top for its rich variety of fillings and mighty thickness.

Min Chiang Kueh

In the article, I’ll be sharing two types of filling I would typically go for, the traditional classic that calls for crushed peanuts and sugar, and Nutella cheese. While there are a wide variety of fillings you can choose from to incorporate (even making it savoury), these two are my ultimate favourite as it always rings the bell of comfort in my tastebud.

Min Chiang Kueh

You can make the batter ahead of time (up to 2 days), and put it in the fridge to rest. The recipe is also very easy to make, I think anyone can easily recreate this recipe without any problem. The key thing to take note is the heat applied when frying. You have to make sure that the pan is preheated over LOW heat. Too hot and you will burn your pancake without cooking it fully. I also liked using a good nonstick skillet as it helps me to lift the pancake up easily without a problem. If you like the crust of Min Chiang Kueh, swirl around the pan to give that crisp edge.

Lavender Madeleines with Panasonic Cubie Oven

Lavender Madeleines with Panasonic Cubie Oven

My sister gave me a bottle of dried Lavender recently. I have never played with the flavor of Lavender so I was interested to see what I can do with it in the kitchen. To understand the flavor profile further, I made some Lavender tea with some honey to sweeten the taste. It has a pleasant aroma, almost distinctive smell of its own which, made me felt relaxed and calmed.

This brings me to the next question, “how can I incorporate Lavender with baking?” Since the scent relaxes me, I think it would be great to pair with something basic in order not to complicate things. Butter cake instantly came to my mind and I decided to make the French way, Madeleines.

Boy, the result was so good! When it was baking, my house filled with lovely buttery and floral aroma. It felt like I was in a field filled with fresh Lavender while having a piece of butter cake and coffee. You got to try this! What great about this recipe is that it is so easy to make. You can even make the batter up to a day in advance. So let’s say you have friends coming over for tea in the afternoon, you can make it in the morning and leave it in the fridge to bake when she’s here. You can never go wrong with freshly baked classic butter cakes. The Panasonic Cubie Oven is small and compact, yet is large enough to put two trays of madeleines into the cavity. It also preheats quickly since it is so compact, making it great if you are making for a smaller crowd.

Chocolate Swirl Bread (Babka) with Panasonic Bread Maker SD-P104

Chocolate Swirl Bread (Babka) with Panasonic Bread Maker SD-P104

I love the scent of a fresh loaf of bread early in the morning. However, making bread can take up a lot of time, not to mention that it is also very tedious too. The fact that I am going through my internship right now, it is even harder for me to find time to bake. Luckily, I was introduced to the Panasonic Bread Maker SD-P104 recently and it was such a fun experience making different types of bread so easily.

The Panasonic Bread Maker SD-P104 has up to 13 auto menus for you to chose from, today I will be using menu 8 to make this recipe. Menu 8 allows me to manually add the filling into the dough just before baking. You could use menu 8 to make Hong Kong Pineapple Bread, Cinnamon Roll, and even more!

 I got challenged to make a simple yet elegant bread after I was told by my friends that bread maker is a waste of money as it only makes boring old-school white bread and nothing else. This recipe requires minimum effort with the help of the bread maker. All I needed to do was to add in all the ingredients into the pan, set the setting and let it do its job. When it was time to add the filling in the dough, the machine beeped to inform me that the dough is ready for my own creation. I quickly took it out to roll it into a rectangular shape, spread the filling, roll it into a log and tie it into a knot to reveal the beautiful swirl.

If you are just making a bread with nuts or raisins, simply just put the filling into the raisin dispenser.
