Capati anyone?

One of my favourite dish!
Here in Bintulu it's hard to find a good capati. Its not that there's no mamak stall which sells capati, but it's not as good as those you can find in Jitra.

In Jitra there are 3 places that sell good capati one in Tanah Merah and 2 in Jitra town. The best is of course Kak Jun's capati kat tepi sungai tu. Marvellouse I tell you. Makan pulak dengan susu lembu freshly squeezed.. Moooooooooooooooooooo! hehe. Itulah yang terbaik so far. I cannot find anywhere else the capati is soooo lembut. (Meleleh air liur neh....)

Anyway, the version that I made is good enough... well not as stunning as Kak Jun's but edible la kan.. haha.
Hey what do you expect.. I've made myself kot! should give me some credit la. Anyway its not that hard to make, the look is excellent, and the taste is agreeable.. hehe [^_^]

Kadang2 bila dah kempunan bole la buat sendiri.. Makan dengan kari ayam. Best!
The recipe I got from here

Karipap daging...delicious!

Karipap or curry puff is one of my favourite kuih. Its been a while since I last ate them. When I was a lot younger precisely during my school days, my mother always make these for tea time. And they are supeeerrrbb!!

I love my mom's karipap compare to the usual ones that you can buy from makcik jual kuih. Unlike the regular ones, my mom's karipap filling is consist of meat, carrot, a little of chillies, cilantro and of course potatoes. It is very tasty I tell you! 

And another thing about the karipap that captures my palate is the "kulit". I dont like some karipap which the kulit is smooth and a bit "wangi". It reminds me of the "tepung kek" they used to make cakes and biscuit. Yuck! Not the cakes and biscuits but the karipap using that flour. Its totally inappropriate.. hehe. That is according to my taste la. Lain orang, lainla tekaknya... [^_^]. I prefer the kulit is NOT smooth, and you can see with some "bubbles" on the surface.
