Well that means i need to do lots of practising and experimenting before i can proudly claim that oh yes i can now make good bread, buns, kuih and the likes!
However last weekend i decided try out my luck and make roti arab, simply because a week before we just had the most fluffy and delish roti arab made by no other than my MIL..with assistance from SIL as well :)
So here we go the experiment! I've jotted down the recipe in my hp, and asked SIL on the basic steps.
a pinch of salt
11 oz of milk + water - fresh milk or evaporated will do
Put the flour n butter into your mixer and let the mixer to do the kneading job until it forms crumbs. then add in sugar, salt and liquid ingredients gradually till the dough is smooth and doesnt stick to your mixer wall. Anyway this is the first time Mr Ken was assigned to dough-related job, what i can conclude is the mixer can't really handle a large amount of dough...bergegar2 ok. So after few minutes of kneading i decided to stop the mixer and knead the dough manually, dgn tangan ai yg comel dan kurus nih. Seriously it got my muscles to work at its optimum level, lenguh sgt ok. Now i almost give up and was telling myself alangkah bagusnya kalau ai buat kek daripada buat benda nih! :p
So after few rounds of uli-menguli and campak-mencampak (like what Jamie Oliver always do to his dough), i think the dough is good enough to go for resting. So i rest the dough for like 20-25 minutes and took my late brekkie, and when i took a peek at the rested dough i was like wallahhh...dough ai dah naik gebu2!!
