Alhamdulillah, I am finally cooking again in my home sweet home, in my newly uplift kitchen. Alhamdulillah again.
Last Sunday(15th August 2010) was my first day doing a 'real' cooking for the family, especially for the berbuka. Since moving back into the house, there are so many things happened. Moved back-in in a flash, kenduri, I fell sick for almost 2 weeks (as usual, especially when I am very tired), went to Dungun for the Programming and Multimedia Competition, and followed by taking care of Sabrina who was admitted to a medical center. Fuhhh! What a hapenings.
Sabrina was discharged on Friday (13th August), not enough time for cooking, Saturday, the cabinet team was busy installing the kitchen cabinet (stove off again...), only Sunday I started a 'real' cooking for the break fast.
But, chicken black pepper wasn't the menu for Sunday (I forgot what I cooked that day, getting old already - hey! its my birthday today, memang dah makin tua). This is what we had for berbuka yesterday. Ayah asked ibu to make something that the kids would want to eat as everybody is not feeling very well, therefore no appetite. Hmmm... what could it be? Masak kicap? Too often. Aha! Instead of beef black pepper, let's change to chicken black pepper, and I know Hakim normally likes it.
Chicken cut into small parts
Ginger - sliced
Garlic and onion - diced
Onion - sliced (for decoration later)
Black pepper (grounded coarsely + bottled)
Corn flour that has been mixed with water (to thicken the gravy)
1. Fry the sliced ginger, and the diced garlic and onion till fragrant.
2. Add chicken and fry till cooked.
3. Add carrot.
4. Pour in the black pepper (to your taste)
5. Add some water (as my kids like the gravy, mine is a bit watery)
6. When everything is cooked, pour the corn flour
7. Add the decorative items.
And ready to be served.
Oppss ... sorry no photo. Not enough time to snap.
