L’année 2010 ( Welcoming 2010 )

My version of 'kuih tepung pelita' - in a bottle...



The day started in my small, little garden, me watering my plants in the morning... I smelled the aroma of ginger and pandan from my nasi lemak that was still cooking in the rice cooker... that was to be my breakfast to start off the new year. It made the whole house smells delicious and sweet. Homey!


I plucked another bunch of Pandan leaves from my petite garden... and put some in a jar filled with some water. I just can't resist the fragrant smell of pandans!

Right after my breakfast and while waiting my laundry being done, I started making some pandan juice! Oh yes, I am a fan of Kuih Tepung Pelita, especially during the fasting month of Ramadan... so, I decided to bake some... The only part I dislike is, folding the pandan leaves into a box shape, oh my... Instead, I had opted to use glass bottles - and leave them in the fridge for them to get done... that, I must say, is more satisfying!

Instead of totally using diced water chestnuts as the filling, I had used some well-boiled kidney beans, too! Kidney beans are rich in protein and I highly recommend it to those who are into body building -include at least 250 grams of it in your daily diet to support and maintain your muscles.


O.k, I shall let the pictures tell the story...

      Ok jugak letak dlm jar. Kalau makan yg dalam daun pandan, mau nya I makan sampat 3-4 bijik sekali. yang ni puas hati. Cuma I suka the feeling masa dok korek kotak daun pandan tu guna sudu.. korek hingga ke titisan terakhir!
