Biskut Susu

This biskut susu is one of my favourite biscuit during Hari Raya. Nobody had made a very tasty biscuit than my grandmother. Her Biskut Susu is the best and almost "impossible" to make! Her's is so scrumptious it melts in your mouth..literally! I've tried making them several times but I just could't get the "melts in your mouth" part. I'm just baffled.

And each time I visit my grandma, I've always asked her how she made the biscuit. And each time is the same method...went back and tried..the results is not exactly the same. Though the taste is the same.....

Here's the recipe:

  • Tepung Jagung    - 1 cup
  • Tepung Sagu       - 1 cup
  • Tepung gandum   - 1/2 cup
  • Icing sugar           - 3/4 cup
  • Susu pekat           - 2 tablespoon
  • Egg yolk               - 1
  • Butter                   - 5 auns ( approximatelt 150gm)
  • Vanilla                  - 1 teaspoon
  1. Beat sugar and butter together until fluffy.
  2. Add the egg yolk and continue beating.
  3. Then add the condensed milk and vanilla.
  4. Lastly, add in the flours
  5. Mix all well... than roll will a rolling pin.
  6. trace with any shapes you like.
  7. Bake for ~10-12mins at about 175C
p/S: The batter is very sticky.. to avoid sticking to the rolling pin, place plastic on the batter before you roll. or you can use the pipping bag..easier!

Soap Nut??!!!

Have you heard about soap nut?!
Well I've came to know about it recently....while searching for the best soap to wash the cloth diapers.

Soapnut@Soapberries is actually a natural and eco-friendly multi-purpose cleaner. It can be used for your laundry as well as for your household cleaning around the house from dish-washing to jewellery cleaning, and even for your pets shampoo. It doesn't produce lots of suds so it is fit to use in either top or front loading washing machines.

It is 100% natural, biodegradable and of course free from harsh chemicals. Gentle for little ones too! Perhaps for those with allergy and sensitive skin you might wanna give this a try and see what happens.

I've read that there are 2 ways to use this soap nut...

  1. Use it as a whole
  2. Use it in liquid form
As a whole
Just put in 6-8 soapnut in a cotton bag/an old sock and dump in your washing machine and wash normally As easy as that.
For soiled laundry use it together with hot water and with cold water for refreshing the clothes.
Essential oil can be added in the wash bag to get a scented laundry.
Soapnut mush be stored in a cool dry place preferably in an airtight container. However, sometimes it might absorb moisture form the environment and become sticky but this wont effect its cleaning properties.
When the soap has become mushy, has no soapy feeling and gray it is time throw them away, but don't put in the rubbish bin, rather can be turned into compost for your garden! [^_^]

In liquid form
Firstly, the soapnut shell must be soak in the water for at least 12hours. Take 15-20 pieces into 4-5 cups of water. Strain and use.
The water will get more concentrated when you leave it soak longer. The shell can still be use until it is no longer has 'soapy' feeling.

Alternatively you can bring the water to boil and simmer for 30 minutes , with same quantity of soapnut shell and water. But then again these cannot be reuse. In this form, it will last longer if stored in the refrigerator. If leave at room temperature it only last for 4-5 days.
In this liquid form it can be use for lots of cleaning function:

  • general household cleaning
  • Handwashing silk and delicate fabric
  • Liquid hand soap and shampoo
  • Pet shampoo
  • Plant wash and pest repellent
  • Jewellery cleaner
  • Window and glass cleaner and many more.

Basically, soapnut is a soap that grows on tree! Very natural and 100% free from harsh chemical. Gentle for your sensitive skin and even for the plant. They produce little bubbles but that doesn't reduce its efficient cleaning. And must be change when it turned black and mushy. 

Wow I guess this is exactly what I'm looking for! A miracle soap [^_^]. And its not that expensive.. On the net for 1kg it is around RM35-RM50. That is a lot of soapnut!
I can't wait to try it, for my laundry and for my eldest daughter. She has a very sensitive skin, no far nothing is quite suitable for her. I hope this is a good info for you. [^_^]

Wantan Dumplings....[^_^]

I like dumplings... (fried ones) hehe..but here its hard to find, the halal ones that is. So,I've decided to try making my one.

I've googled it and found this recipe to make the wantan skin;

flour - 250gm
water - 80ml
salt - 1 teaspoon
egg -1

thats it! very simple. For the filling, I've used my karipap filling.

With minced meat, potatoes and carrots

the dough

1st try

my daughter call it 'flower dumpling'

after frying..tasty

try different shapes....look how it turned out! disaster haha

So there you have it. homemade dumpling. The dough is so smooth and crunchy when you eat it while its hot. My daughter loves the wantan skin more than the filling! perhaps because it is crunchy.

Its taste is not quite the same as the ones I usually ate outside but I think it is as good because now i can make it my self! and eat it as much as I wanted! yeay! [^_^]

Someday I will try to make with the usual filling.... chicken with crab [^_<]

Chocolate Chip Cookie

Quite sometime ago, I did make a post on soft choc. chip cookie. However this time, even though it is sounded quite similar but it is not the same. And of course the texture and taste is not the same.

My husband prefer this version of cookie than the previous ones. What I can say about it, not as soft as the soft chocolate chip cookie but not crunchy as the usual cookie. it is somewhat in between. It is however, kinda chewy... My kids love them too! [^_^]

Last week my mother had asked me to buy some kain batik Sarawak for her friends..they ordered them. So the week before I went to the store took some pictures...discretely..(hahaha) afraid that the storekeeper might be upset and sent the pictures I took to mama.

Mama then show the pictures to her friends and made the booking. So, I pun boughtla a few number of kain batik... interesting jugakla coz they love them. Some would make them into baju kurung you know.. they bought 2 sets one for the baju kurung and the other for the sarung. Brilliant kan!

At the store they also sell 4 metre of kain pasang for baju kurung but the price is RM100+++. And I've seen that they have the same pattern as the kain batik.. but of course the teture is different. But if you compare the price, you can get sepasang kain for baju kurun for less than RM80 depending on the texture.

Meaning, this kain batik has many grades.... The higher the price the smoother and silkier the texture.
