Water Roux

I found something new while jumping from blog to blog. It's quite interesting..I found numbers of bread recipe nowadays using the water roux - the thicken liquid of mixture of bread flour and water. Wondering how's the outcome of it..? I just couldnt wait to reach home and having my own kitchen back. Owhhh how I miss those activities of trying the new recipe and kitchen thingy.. :)

  1. Incorporate mashed sweet potato (boil to tender) with flour & salt, form a dough. Not to much flour as it will fade the taste of sweet potato and keria will turn hard/chewy.
  2. Devide into small ball and shape by flatten the ball and make a small hole.
  3. Deep fry till browning.
  4. Coating: combine sufficient sugar and little bit water. Boil till thicken. Sprinkle with little bit flour and add the prepared keria. Stir to coat.

When it ready, press in the cake/mould. Spray with little bit oil if necessary. Put aside while preparing the top.

Pau (steam bun)

I am no longer 'performing' from my ussual kichen, where I had normally prepared food/took pictures for this blog. I left the house 2 weeks ago and now transit somewhere else before we sign off from Sydney for good. I left my job as well since last monday, and now I became soooo free for blogging. My routine since then is taking care of our 'Nina' as well as sitting in front of my laptop doing nothing hhehehehe.

I found few pictures of my cooking in my C drive. Those pictures were taken weekssss ago when I was sooo busy with packing and sending our stuffs to Malaysia, and some were taken during my confinement, which was nearly 4 months agooo hehehhehe, banyang kan lah!

So this Pau is one of it! Talking about this Pau, I just fallen in love with this recipe. I was like kena curse before this. Whenever I tried any pau recipe, it didnt turn out well all the time. Sometime terkecut la, sometime terkeras laa, but this one, wallaaaa! The picture tells i guess..

All I like about this recipe is, it does not require specific measurement. Just agak2 aje ok...
  • 2-3 cups bread flour
  • ** 1 tablespoon sugar
  • **1 heap teaspoon yeast
  • ** 50 ml warm water
  • sufficient water to form dough
  • 2 table spoon vege oil
  • 1 and half teaspoon vinegar
  1. Mix ingredients marked with **. Disolve sugar and let it sit for a while until yeast looks breezing.
  2. Pour mixture 1 into flour. Mix it.
  3. Add in vinegar, oil.
  4. Add in water little by little and form a dough.
  5. Knead to get elastic/smooth dough. What I did, I jut put them into my bread maker and let it do the job.
  6. When it ready, filling as u like. Sit it for while.
  7. Pour few spoons vivegar in the water when steaming. Steam in preheated steamer for 10 - 12 minutes.
