Homemade Churros with Chocolate dipped Sauce


My love affair with churros only began recently when my colleagues brought it at our research centre at UTM. I ate few churros that day and I fall in love with that foot-long magical wands of dough. As I love cooking so much, I've asked for the recipe from her.

Since I spend a lot more time at home these days, I decided to play around in the kitchen a bit and made churros for Aulia' ..And of course the crispy batons need to be dipped with warm chocolate dipping sauce. While I am still far from developing a passion for cooking, I do enjoy whipping up simple snacks and I can tell you chorros are new favorite of mine. 


INGREDIENTS:

1 cup whole milk
1 cup water
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 cup of all-purpose flour
Dash of salt
2 eggs
Oil for deep frying
1 cup of Beryl's chocolate coins for dipping sauce

HOW TO DO:

1. Bring the milk, water, butter and salt to the boil in a saucepan.

2. When the mixture is boiling rapidly, add the flour all at once, reduce the heat to medium and without a second's hesitation, start stirring the mixture like mad with a wooden spoon. the dough will come together very quickly and a slight crust will form on the bottom of the pan., but you have to keep stirring-vigorously-another 2 to 3 minutes to dry the dough. At the end of this time, the dough will be very smooth.

3. Turn the dough into a bowl. One by one, add eggs to the dough. Beat until each egg is thoroughly incorporated. As soon as you add the first egg, your dough will separate. When all the eggs are incorporated, the dough will be thick and shiny and, when you lift some of it up will fall back into the bowl in a ribbon. Spoon the dough into a piping bag with a star tip.


4. Heat about an inch of oil in a deep cast iron skillet over a medium high heat. Carefully pipe the dough into the oil. Snip with kitchen scissors when churros is your desired length. Fry, turning once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.

5. Drain on paper towels.

6. Fry 1 cup of coin Beryl's chocolate with a 1/2 cup of cooking oil for 10 minutes and serve in a glass. Enjoy hot!

Now it's perfect for tea time!

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..
B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays.


So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

TTC Part 8: HSG Test Result

So last week, I did the HSG Test (Hysterosalpingogram) which is fallopian tube patency test. Kenapa buat? Sebab we've been curious about our unexplained infertility for 5 years. After consistently visiting my gynae every month since earlier this year and masih unable to conceive, doctor suggested that I undergo the HSG test to determine the tubal patent. 
Test ni perlu dibuat after period and before you expect your ovulation. In between la kira and make sure you did not BD before the test. So lebih kurang CD10 akak datang untuk buat test. During CD1 lagi dah buat appointment untuk datang pukul berapa and to check whether doctor available atau dia ada operation or what not during that day. 
So masa ni buat kat KPJ Ipoh, datang dengan husband because takut balik nanti tak boleh nak drive sendiri. Terus pegi bahagian Radiology (X Ray) bawa surat from my Gynae. 
Procedure X Ray semua sama you have to take off all your clothes and pakai la the hospital gown, and you need to bring your…
