Midnight Meanderings and Resepi Bakso

0

Wish I had a million dollars.

What wouldn't I buy? Huhu..

I'd probably stock up my kitchen with all the gadgets and equipment I've been mooning about for years- a digital kitchen scale, several varieties of pans, pots, and culinary utensils, a more durable stand mixer, a hand-blender, a bigger stove, a breadmaker, and probably an oven (not that I don't like my oven tangkring- it suits me fine as for now).

Well, you can't stop an ol' non-working momma from having her day-dreams. *sighs*

Oh yeah, where was I? As usual, when everyone's having 40 winks the ol' non-working momma is staring owlishly at her monitor like an inspiration's gonna hit her- bang!- in the head. Truth is, stomache's growling like mad, eventhough just wolfed down a bowl of nasi+tom yam and a mug of hot choc with 3 slices of cheesey bread. *sigh* First day of Ramadhan and the ol' momma's stomache just can't take the heat. And there's still a month left!

Enough with all these meanderings. Let's get down to business. I've been meaning to sit down and post a recipe or two, just like I've promised. First recipe of the day (or midnight, should I say), is the bakso, courtesy of Che'Iza. Thanks Che'Iza from the yummy recipe.

Resepi Bakso (che'iza@myresepi.com)
Bahan: 7-8 orang
mee hoon 1 bungkus (400g)
taugeh-celur
kobis-hiris nipis (didn't put)

*Untuk bebola
400g daging cincang (I used fresh meat and cincang-ed it myself)
2 biji bawang merah, racik halus
2 biji bawang putih, racik halus
2 sb telur (about 1/2 telur)
1 sk tepung ubi/jagung (I ran out of both so I used tepung beras)
sedikit serbuk lada sulah dan garam

*Untuk kuah
3 biji bawang merah, hiris
*3 ulas bawang putih
*1/2 inci halia
*1 sk lada sulah biji
1 batang serai, diketuk
1 sb pati daging/ayam
sedikit serbuk lada sulah
garam dan perasa

Cara-cara:

  1. UNTUK KUAH: Tumbuk bahan bertanda *. Panaskan minyak, tumis bawang merah hingga kekuningan. Masukkan bahan yang ditumbuk dan tumis hingga garing dan naik bau.
  2. Masukkan air, pati daging, serbuk lada sulah, garam dan perasa.
  3. UNTUK BEBOLA: Sementara tunggu kuah mendidih, gaul semua bahan untuk membuat bebola daging. Bentukkan bulat mengikut saiz dikehendaki. Siap membentuk, masukkan ke dalam kuah tadi. Biarkan mendidih. Kuah telah siap bila bebola tadi timbul. Siap sudah kuah dan bebola dia.
  4. Rendam bee hoon dan celur, kemudian tapis. Hidangkan dengan taugeh dan kobis. Tuangkan kuah dengan bebola. Boleh juga guna mee lain.
  5. Biasanya di Indonesia, bakso dihidang dengan cili pada yang ditumbuk berasingan dengan kicap. (I just use ready-made je).
Mine's rather jernih because I ran out of meat :P Jadilah, asalkan ada
