Gori (Sayur Nangka)

My mother would call this jack fruit soup in coconut milk as sayur gori (gori is nangka which is Indonesian word for jack fruit)

There are many versions of this soup, some using mung beans some don’t

We would have cassava leaf as the main green in the soup.

This following version is Canada version hahahah As there isn’t cassava leaf here 😀 We also would not add bell pepper as they are not common, but hey, why not 😛

1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
3 tsp mushroom granules
5 c water
Vegeta powder, to taste (2 tbsp)
1 beef cube seasoning (such as Knorr)
1 can coconut milk
1 chayotte, grate
1 large onion, thinly sliced
3 garlic, thinly sliced
2 kale, just the leaves
3 bell peppers, cubed
300 g ground beef

Brown beef in medium high heat
Stir in onion and garlic
Pour in 3 c water, add in spices and seasonings, cook for 15 mins
Add in veggies, 2 c water, and coconut milk
Cook covered for 15 mins (until kale tender)

Check the video to see how I prepared this soup 🙂

Roti Unyil (Indonesian Mini Buns)

When I was working in Jakarta, Indonesia, my aunt would take me for a quick car ride (hahahha what a bull crap, Jakarta is always with huge traffic, no car ride can be short whatsoever :P) to Bogor, where these mini buns are known from.

They are smaller than mini sizes, so they are called “unyil”, bite size.

I did not make them unyil size though, rather mini. You can of course make them into unyil size, just weigh the dough smaller than mine 🙂

Bloom yeast:

500 ml lukewarm water
4 tbsp skim milk powder
1/2 c sugar
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast

Add in 1/2 c melted margarine

Stir in:

2 c AP flour
1 c bread flour

Let rest for an H

Knead in:

1 c bread flour
1/2 tsp each BP, BSoda

Dump dough on floured surface, knead for 1-2 mins, divide into 4

Turn 1 portion into cinnamon rolls (margarine, brown sugar, cinnamon powder, raisin)

Turn 1 portion into banana buns (banana, brown sugar, margarine)

Turn 1 portion into choc chip buns

Turn 1 portion as a regular round buns (once baked, brush with margarine, top with tuna floss)

Once shaped and filled, let rest until doubled in size, 45 mins at least

Bake on preheated 375 f convection oven for 10 mins

Cool on rack
