Day 1 Ramadhan: Chapati

Salam all,

I know, I know, today is already 4th Ramadhan, but I still want to update my dish for first day iftar. Since ayah has declared that he and Hakim is going to the surau for iftar, it left only Sabrina and me at home. Therefore, I decided to make something that Sabrina like the most - CHAPATI. For myself, I prepared some nasi goreng (tapi semua orang pun makan....)

Here goes ..... for the recipe, click here.

These are the food that we had for iftar on the first day of Ramadhan.

From left to right: Gravy for chapati, Chapati
Bottom: Fried rice with soya sauce (as my husband likes it)

For the gravy, I made it very simple:

150g chopped chicken
1 potato cubed
2 onions (diced)
5 french beans
2 tbs curry powder
1 cup coconut milk (I used fresh milk or sometime yogurt)
salt to taste

How to:
  1. put the chicken, curry powder, one onion (leave some onion for later) and some plain water in a pot, and cooked till the chicken is slight tender and curry powder is cooked (it is cooked when there is no strong smell of the curry powder).
  2. next, put in the potato. let it simmer till the potato is tender.
  3. then pour in the coconut milk or the substitute, let it boil
  4. add in the french which has been cut approx 2 inches apart, add some salt
  5. ready for consuming
If you like the oily look in your gravy, just dash some olive oil. For me, I make do with only the oil from the chicken.

the look of the chapati on a griddle.
if your chapati is bloated like the one below, you'll get a soft, fluffy chapati

aDIOS ...
