Dinner rolls

Sometimes I don't know where to even start..and I admit that I lost the touch writing blog for awhile. My mum she loves to write about anything..and I always sit next to here talking about so many blogs that we both enjoyed. Those are the things I'll miss doing with my mum. I wasn't ready to lose her though. 😔

But for thing for sure I'm glad I was her daughter, taught us so many things in life, to always be humble and kind with everyone and one thing I know she loves to cook and invite family & friends over for great meal.

From the Penang Airport you can Uber/Grab to travel around. The moment we reached Penang..My sister took me to Bayan Lepas Market where you can have your breakfast.

I tried the mee bandung..its was so so..its sweet don't like it much I'm sure you can get somewhere taste better but I love the Ang Tau Kah ( Red Bean Ice Blended) my first time actually having it but its super delicious! I was fascinated by the taste because never thought of such drink was existed!

Mutton Varuval


Finally I'm able to share this hit dish! One of my family favourite dish and I serve this dish during raya open house because everyone is having same meal in every open house. So usually in my house open house will be having briyani johor, chicken briyani gravy johorian style too. Because myself is Johorian. And this mutton varuval is always available during raya. 

I usually will asks the butcher to cut the meat to bite size for easier work. So, I don't have to come home and do all this extra work.



Mutton Varuval recipe:


1kg Mutton (preferably boneless) cut bite size.
2 big Onion, sliced
10 Dry Red Chillies
2 tbsp Ginger-Garlic paste
3 tbsp. Crushed Black Pepper
2 tbsp Cumin Powder
2 tsp Salt (adjust to taste)
1 1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup Oil



Method:

1. Clean the mutton throughly with tumeric to remove the excess smell (3 times). Drain water, set aside.

2.  Add the oil. Once the wok started to warm up add the sliced onions. Tear the red chilies and add them too. Add in curry leaves too.  2 or 3  spring of curry leaves.

3. Sauteed the onion until it brings out the fragrant and slightly brown. Add in the ginger and mix it well.

4. Add in the pepper, cumin and salt to the mutton and combine well.

5.  Add in the mutton into the wok and cook together and add the water. Cover the wok with a lid to let it cook for 10 minutes. To soften the meat.

6. Let it cook until the gravy thickens to an almost dry consistency. Serve with warm rice, raita and pair with papadom would be a perfect dish! walla..
