Black Pomfret in Sambal


A bunch of my husband's friend is coming for lunch on my off day. I need a quick fix as I am preparing it alone. This is among the dish prepared for them:
A black pomfret in sambal.

I bought palm sized pomfret, for easy consumption. Each can take one. 
Cleaned it. Rubbed it with salt and turmeric powder. 
And deep fried it till golden in colour.

For the sambal:
1 onion - sliced thinly
2 garlic - chopped
I used about 5 tablespoon of my ready made home-made chili paste (I like to prepare it ahead, so that I dont have to cook it for a long time on busy days?
Tamarind juice extracts
Salt and sugar for taste

For the sambal:
Fry the onion and garlic till soften
Add the chilli paste
Add water. Let it boil.
Add tamarind juice.
When it reaches the thickness that you like, add the salt and sugar to taste.

Pour over the fried pomfret. 
For garnishing, I fry 1 onion (sliced) and few cherry tomatoes.
When soften, pour it over the sambal.

Whalla .... it's delicious I can reassure about that

Simple Egg Tart


Few friends suddenly messaged to come over. I need to think quick to fix something for the quest. Browsing through my freezer and storage cabinet, I decided to make the egg tart.

My recipe is very simple

Ready made puff pastry
2 eggs
1 cup of full cream milk
2 table spoon sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Pour the milk into a bowl.
Add sugar
Add 2 eggs - beaten. Stir well.
Add vanilla extract.

Heat the oven to 180 celcius
Make sure the dough pastry is thawed slightly. Preferably in room temperature.
Cut the sheet using the round cookie cutter.
Place the pastry into the muffin tray. Mold them.
Pour in the egg batter.
Bake for about 20 minutes

Alhamdulillah.... its ready to be eaten.
