Yogurt Rolls Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

A soft and fluffy Yogurt Rolls to kick start your day. Am addicted to bread baking and always on  look out to try out new recipe.

After long time, I have baked a bread using yogurt like this  recipe.    But this time  using  butter and lesser time to knead the dough.  The dough was very sticky so you need to add 1-2 tablespoon of flour to knead them.

To shape it, divide dough into 6 equal portion.  Roll each portion into a smooth ball.  Yogurt Rolls can be shaped into one big loaf as well.    .

I don't mind  to wait more than  2 hours  because in the end  we have these gorgeous rolls to enjoy!

TOMATO FISH RECIPE

Tomato Fish Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A different fish  gravy that uses a  lot of onion and tomatoes.  Tomato Fish  is a milder version and was slightly thicker than  regular  fish curry.

It is better to use a meaty white fish with less bones like red snapper, toman, thread fin, sea bass and many more.  You can  buy a whole fish then request the the stall to slice it for you.

After cleaning, the fish is coated with  lemon juice, chili powder and turmeric before it goes to frying pan for shallow frying.

Nest step, we are going to prepare the sauce by frying onion until it turns soft, adding chili powder  as per your liking  and turmeric. Add in tomato  and cooks until it  is mushy. this will take about 10 minutes. Top with water and bring to  a boil.

After the sauce is thicken, slide in the fried fish.  Allow to simmer for a few minutes before removing from heat.  Tomato Fish is ready to be served with  steaming hot rice or chapati.

BROWN SUGAR PULL APART BREAD FROM SCRATCH RECIPE

Brown Sugar Pull Apart Bread From Scratch @ treatntrick.blogspot.com
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Made with dough balls from sweet bread coated with brown sugar and butter sauce.

After long gap, I have made this Brown Sugar Pull Apart Bread From Scratch  aka Monkey Bread from scratch,  you can find  my previous recipe here .

You can use bundt pan or loaf pan for baking this bread.  If you're not a sweet person, omit the sauce to add  cheese, garlic, bacon, jalapeno or  buffalo  chicken.

This time I choose different method to make it.  My Brown Sugar Pull Apart Bread From Scratch  eliminates a step of rolling the dough balls.  Is this save your time a bit?  Divide the sauce into 3,  first portion goes to the base of the pan.  Second one, pour over after layering  the balls and last one, spoon over the last layer of dough balls.

The dough was very sticky but did not add any additional flour and it yields a fluffy and soft bread indeed.

LEMON CHICKEN RECIPE

Lemon Chicken Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A semi dry dish of chicken fillet drenched in a sweet and sour sauce.

If you are looking for a quick and tasty meal that had a wonderful flavor, this Lemon Chicken is the right choice.

I used boneless chicken cut into strips.  Then coat the cleaned chicken with turmeric and salt.  Fry them until half done.  You can avoid frying them by adding the chicken straight to the wok after  the onion turns translucent.

Adjust the amount of  fresh red, green and bird's eye chili according to your preference.  The Lemon Chicken was fairly a dry dish but  add more water if you want more gravy.

Did you notice that most of the ingredients require slicing.  But to make it time saving, you could consider blending  onion, ginger, garlic and all the chili into  a coarse paste.

BLUEBERRY YOGURT CAKE RECIPE

Blueberry Yogurt Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Extremely moist and loaded with blueberry.  This  Blueberry Yogurt Cake  was  super easy to put together

I made it healthier by using whole wheat flour to the ratio of 1:1, one cup plain flour and 1 cup of whole wheat flour.

For a richer cake, you could sub oil for butter.  But I prefer to use canola oil for this recipe.

Yogurt is nutritious and eating it regularly will boost your health  especially the one without sugar and artificial flavors.  It contains most nutrients your body needs.  High in protein, calcium and trace minerals.

Be cautious with yogurt intake if yo have lactose intolerance or a milk allergy.

Actually you can make this Blueberry Yogurt Cake with just one  bowl and no mixer required.   Let me show you how to do it.

1.  Whisk together both flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.

2.  Make a well in the center, break the eggs, beat lightly, add in oil. yogurt, vanilla  and sugar.   Give this liquid a good mix using a  whisk.

3,  Using a spoon, mix together dry and wet ingredients until well incorporated.  Mix in blueberry. Stir well.

The batter is now ready to be spooned into a greased pan and bake.

Am so glad this cake turned  great  with  beautiful golden color and  the blueberries are well distributed over the entire cake. .

A quick bread laden with cranberries and raisin.  I always love to bake this Cranberry Raisin Bread that was easy and super delicious to  have for breakfast.

TAFTAN BREAD RECIPE

Taftan Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Taftan or taftoon  is a  leavened bread  hailed from Persia,  baked in a clay oven.

I  discover this flatbread while watching a cookery show on television,   I  did some research. found out that it  could be made without yeast with just water. milk or yogurt salt and whole wheat flour.   My Taftan Bread  recipe adapted  from various sources use yeast, milk and oil.

The dough was really sticky and hard to shape.  You can add some flour by a tablespoon but not too much otherwise it turns really hard.

On a floured board, roll out each ball into a circle.  thin it out  so the edges are thicker. Prick the dough  with fork leaving the sides.

I can't believe how much better this  Taftan Bread  tastes than takeaway flatbread, even my hubby wanted more!.

BRAIDED CINNAMON BREAD RECIPE

Braided Cinnamon Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Made from scratch,  this  Braided  Cinnamon Bread just got even better in shape and  taste.

You can also use this basic recipe to make a regular cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls,  sweet bun, monkey bread,  breakfast rolls and many more.  Simply  filling and shaping the base dough differently can result an entirely new product.

I have cut the dough  into  2 after shaping them into a log or you can easily turn it into one bigger loaf.

It smells wonderful while baking because of the addition of cinnamon.  The dough was easy to work with,   no additional flour required for mixing the dough.

Though my shaping wasn't  great but this Braided Cinnamon Bread is one of the best cinnamon rolls I ever made!

Super easy, quick and delicious Lemon Yogurt Cake  made with lemon zest, lemon juice and  and   topped with lemon frosting.

This cake uses vegetable oil and not butter as compared with other recipes.  At first, am reluctant to try it since it contains  high sugar in the cake plus for the frosting.

AGAR AGAR GUDIR RECIPE

Agar Agar Gudir Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


A popular dessert during  fasting month made with agar agar powder and  coconut milk.

This Agar Agar Gudir tastes even better with addition of  gula melaka (palm sugar),  If using this sugar you need not add any coloring at all.

Bought a red color agar2 powder so I use white sugar.  Make sure to purchase a colorless pack if you intend to add palm sugar.

The secret to a perfect Agar Agar  Gudir are:

1.  Sugar must be dissolved completely and it should be rolling boiling before you add coconut,

2,  After adding  egg mixture, it should be boiled until  the eggs curdle into  tiny bits.  This would make your Agar Agar  into 2 layers and looks very pretty.

When mixing the dough, add water little by little.  You may not need to add the specified amount as per the recipe.

QUICHE BREAD CUPS RECIPE

Quiche Bread Cups Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A delightful mini bite made with bread slices, can  be  filled with all sorts of yummy filling.

Made these  Quiche Bread Cups with white sandwich bread but you could choose other type of bread too.

Use microwave to warm up the bread,  if you don't  have a microwave oven, you may steam them.   This procedure makes the bread soft and easy to shape without tearing.

This time I  chose capsicum and tomato plus a hint of chili powder to lift the flavor but feel free to include other vegetables and other spices you prefer.

Other add in I would suggest are cooked chicken, bacon or tuna.  If you love cheese, you may add a quarter cup of shredded cheese over the top of these  Quiche Bread Cups.

HOW TO MAKE FINGER ROLLS RECIPE

How to make Finger Rolls Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

These  yeasted rolls are made with regular flour and whole wheat.

I have tried all sort of bread baking with variations of method. How To Make Finger Rolls use slightly different way from what I used to make.

Remarkably easy recipe but need muscle work if you're using your hand or else dump the dough in your stand mixer  or bread maker to knead it.

Another thing I notice that  How To Make Finger Rolls let you shape them immediately after kneading.  Then allow to rise until doubled for 1.5 to 2 hours.

When adding liquid to the dough, add in increments,  All flour is hot the same,  you may  need more or less water/milk as indicated.

I really enjoyed making them.  the dough is so lovely to work with. You can ice them or stuff with sweet or savory filling if desired.

DIGESTIVE BROWNIES RECIPE

Digestive Brownies Recipe  @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Deliciously yummy treat  using Digestive biscuits,  made from scratch.

Am craving for a dessert that was quick and easy that does not involve a complicated step to make.  So I decided to whip up  this Digestive Brownies.

Since I have a sleeve of digestive biscuits so why not incorporated them in brownies. I crushed these but you can use quartered digestive over the top of brownies batter.  Actually you can use other cookies but stick to this proportion , 1 1/2 cups to be added to the batter and 1/4 cup for topping (quartered or crushed).

Always prefer not so sweet treat so use only 3/4 cup of sugar, Digestive Brownies were so good even my hubby who are not keen having sweet dessert requested for extra pieces.

TAPIOCA PANCAKE aka LEMPENG UBI RECIPE

Tapioca Pancake aka Lempeng Ubi @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A traditional pancake made with fresh grated tapioca and coconut.

It has been over  10 years since  I have eaten this Tapioca Pancake served by my late mum.

Those days, we have to prepare the tapioca from scratch.  Peeling and grating was the first step for making this pancake.  Today grated tapioca was readily available in the market.

Using a non stick pan eliminated  the need to use excessive oil when frying  them.

Tapioca Pancake can be eaten with sugar or dip in spicy gravy.   Sugar could be added while mixing the batter for a sweet version. So I leave it to you to decide how you want to enjoy them.

KEEMA PARATHA RECIPE

Keema Paratha Recipe @ treayntrick.blogspot.com

A flat bread stuffed with curried minced meat.

This Keema Paratha is a wonderful recipe made with paratha (flat bread).   There are tons of variations you could do with this paratha.

Am using minced lamb but other meat are equally tasty too.  If you are a vegetarian, replace the meat with tofu, paneer or garbanzo beans.

Instead of using an individual ground spice, go for ready made spice mix like meat curry powder or korma powder if it is available at your place.

Also added cooked green peas for my Keema Paratha that blends so well with minced meat.

BANANA SCONES RECIPE

Banana Scones @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

An egg free  Banana Scones made with regular pantry items and really easy to make.

I have 2 bananas lying on my kitchen counter and need to do something before it turns bad.

After so long, I did not make any scone so  this Banana Scones  are the best option.

The dough was bit sticky but still  manageable.  Am able to shape it into 7 in round onto floured baking pan with my hand.  Place the dough in the middle of the pan, pat on top and run your hand along the edges to give it a nice round shape to the thickness of 3/4 in.

My Banana Scones take exactly  20 minutes to bake but it may vary depending type of oven you are using, so adjust accordingly.

FRIED TEMPEH & POTATO IN SOY SAUCE RECIPE

Fried Tempeh & Potato in Soy Sauce @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Mixed vegetables  dish  consisting of  fried  tempeh and  potato simmered in spicy sweet soy sauce.

One of my son's favorite vegetables, tempeh (fermented soya  bean cake), potato  with loads of bird's eye chili.

Fried Tempeh & Potato in Soy Sauce was extra spicy due to addition of bird's eye chili.  Spices are a matter of individual taste so adapt accordingly.

Adjust the soy sauce and sugar to your liking.  Cut the tempeh and potato into almost equal size for  uniform cooking.  If you choose a healthier option, do boil,  bake or microwave the potato  until done but still nice and firm.

Fried Tempeh & Potato in Soy Sauce is a versatile dish.   In case you run out of potato, easily replace it  with tofu  or sweet potato. For extra crunch and taste,  add some fried anchovies to the above and toss well..
