Nyonya Devil Curry for Malaysian Food Fest...娘惹魔归咖哩献給马来西亚美食节

This is my third nyonya dish, Nyonya Devil Curry. This is a nyonya dish from the Southern Nyonya.  The southern nyonya, on the other hand, tend to prepare food that is generally rich in coconut millk and Malay spices such as coriander and cumin. Sugar is quite liberally featured in the recipes of southern cuisine. One very unique style of the nyonya cuisine is their imaginative ways of preparing fruits and vegetables. Sweet potatoes leaves,  tiny sour carambola, unripe jackfruit and the heart of banana bud are all transformed in the kitchen, added to and blended with aromatic leaves such as kaffir lime, tumeric, pandan, and laksa leaf. This gives a good balance of tastes in meals... this is a little from this book (Northern and Southern Nyonya Cuisne) Back to my nyonya dish that i am going to share today. It is Nyonya Devil Curry. I am quite curious how DEVIL is this Nyonya Devil Curry. When i study the recipe i found that the dried chilies is a lot, that means this w

Apple Cornmeal Upside-Down Cake~Free and Easy Bake Along

~Thanks to Zoe for picking this great cake~ This is a very nice cake. i like the texture of the cake it is soft and moist. i am using almond meal instead of cornmeal. Why? Just because i can't find cornmeal in my place...LOL  We have 2 medium size shops which supplies all types of baking ingredients here, even they do not sell 'cornmeal'. I was thinking, maybe i am going to skip this round bake along event. But i do not want to miss the fun so I seek for help from Lena and Joyce. Asking them what can i used to replace cornmeal??  In the end i decided to use almond meal just because i have some in the pantry. To my surprise, it turn out well. Thanks to Lena, giving me the green light to do so...hehe  Only that i found mine is a bit too thin and it looks like a pan pizza but it do not taste like pizza..:p  The smell of the almond meal is so nice when it is baked and it goes really well with the caramelize apples. I am glad i baked this cake.. Thanks to Lena
