Instant Pizza

This is an instant pizza, made for my kids 'food pack' for school. The kids like it, ibu is happy because it is easy to make.

Few slices of sandwich loaf (I used Gardenia)
Sliced cheese (mine is Cheesedale - if not mistaken), sliced thinly. (Grated cheese will also work).
Capsicum - sliced

Sauce (Mix all):
1 table spoon of tomato sauce
1 table spoon of oyster sauce
1 table spoon of spaghetti sauce
1 table spoon of chilli sauce (if u like, but not for my kids)

How to:
1. Spread the mixed sauce onto the sandwich loaf.
2. Arrange the sausage and capsicum.
3. For the top layer, arrange the thinly sliced cheese.
4. Baked in the oven 180 degree for about 10 minutes.

Off the kids to school with a healthy food during recess. But belief me, they will still get something else fromt he canteen which are more tempting.

Sardine Pie

I've wanted to bake a pie for quite sometime. I've collected several recipes but never have the strength to try it. After collecting so may recipes, the next step was to buy a pie baking tray (tak payah pun tak pe .... kalau rajin). But .... my desire was put to a 'pause' mode as my microwave oven was malfunction...... After some persuasion, my husband agreed to get a new one ... so .... no more reasons.

So here it is .... prepared at 9.30pm. Completed the baking process at almost 12 o'clock midnight. Thanks to Mama Fami for the recipe (who took it from Reens).

For the crust : (a c&p)

400 g flour (sifted)
200 g margarine
pinch of salt
7 - 8 tablespoons water (from the fridge)

Method :

For the crust :

1. Margarine + flour + salt, make into breadcrumbs.
2. Add water till soft dough is formed.
3. Divide into 2 portions and let it rest for at least 20 minutes

For the filling, I used:

Cooking oil
I can of sardine (the small can will do) - mashed
1 Potato - diced
1 large onion - diced
1 tb spoon curry powder
Corn flour to thicken and glued the filling
Salt to taste

How to:
1. Fry the potato until cooked.
2. Add onion.
3. Add the curry powder and some water.
4. Add sardine and mix well.
5. Let it cook for a while or until it dries a bit (but not too dry).
6. Add salt and the corn flur.

Assembling : (a c&p)

1. Roll thin the dough for the base. Put it in the pie dish. Poke with fork.
2. Bake for 20 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 180 c.
3. Pour the filling into the baked crust.
4. Roll thin the second portion of the dough to cover the filling. Trim the edges and press with a fork to seal. Make small slits on top.
5. Decorate as desired with the remaining dough.
6. Brush with beaten egg. (I did not perform this as my lovely Sabrina is allergic to eggs)
7.Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 C for 40 - 45 minutes.

Happy eating .....
