Jalan Jalan Cari Makan

Sure, you can do that if you're in Malaysia. A food paradise I'd say. Go to normal stalls by the roadside, mamak, pasar malam, pasar tani. Man...
Come to Australia, it would be a bit hard for a Muslim to do the same thing. How I'm so jealous of my fellow Malaysians who get to try all the Italian cuisine alongside the Lygon St., the Greek dishes opposite the QV building, the Peking duck in Chinatown. Oh well, if you can't try them, you make them yourself, HALAL.

So I've tried baked macaroni, baked rice, hainanese chicken rice (only the rice LOL), okonomiyaki, fettucine with a lot of olive oil (I don't really remember the name of this dish since I learned it from a friend)..but I haven't tried any Greek dish yet. Heck, I even made keria and donuts myself last year. I love the keria but too troublesome to get the sweet potatoes. Lucky I got my awesome housemates last year to help me. =P Here in Churchill, among my friends I'm famous for my cookies.


So I guess you can call my cookies Famous Dan's

Even so, I don't think there's any Malaysian restaurant in Melbourne that has Malay desserts like pengat pisang, lepat pisang, bubur sagu or bubur jagung. So last week, I began my hunt for the recipe, and I found this, on YouTube!


It's "Tea With Umi" time! XD

I kinda like this channel by Umi. Man, I don't know if there are others in Malaysia who also do their own cooking show online, but this is just simply awesome! I bet you can find Chef Wan's cooking shows in YouTube as well.

Anyway, so after watching the video above, I started planning to make Pengat Pisang.
The important-must-have ingredients:
Bananas
Sago
Palm sugar
Santan

Didn't expect to find sago and palm sugar at the supermarket here hahaha! So happy to see them in the Asian food section.

And here it is, my pengat pisang.

Cannot see clearly hoh? I think next time I won't use the powder santan.

I shared it with my housemate Lester and with Pam and Xinyi. They loved it! Hahaha, though maybe to some it's a bit sweet. So that night I had succeeded in my attempt to make a Malay dessert. Hohoho.. Next one? I'm not really sure.

Mak said this is very easy to do, and it would be impossible to screw up. Hahaha, so, ada berani? =P

hehehehe

Ibu..
Di saat ku melihat dunia,
Kau tersenyum menangis gembirra,
Tatkala ku dibesarkan,
kau berikan segunung kasih sayang,
Selaut belaian..
Ibu..
Pengorbananmu akan ku balas,
Pengajaranmu sentiasa jadi pegangan,
Biarpun ombak merobek dunia,
Kau tetap ibuku yang satu.

xplorer said...

i understand what you mean . when i'm in overseas for a long period of time and when i come back , the first thing that i will do before i rich home is to stop by at the nearest mamak stall and eat roti canai banjir or nasik kandar banjir

Danial Ikhwan Jaafar said...

haha yea. but i don eat at nasi kandar at any stall. i only eat at this restaurant owned by my mom's friend in my mom's hometown, penang. that's e best i've tried so far, plus the food is served warm from the kitchen because it's not a 24/7 restaurant. oh, and the place is freaking clean.
