Turkish Mince Meat Pita

When I saw Wendy post this in her blog, I am so attracted by the unique shape of this pita bread. I am very busy at that moment and I really worried that I don't have time to try this out. Just yesterday I decided to try this out. Rush out to grab some mince beef, tomato and parsley. Too bad can't get fresh parsley so I used the dried ones. I am glad that I try this out the very last minutes. This is so yummy.. 
I love this  AFF event, I always learn new dishes from this event.  Just like the pervious MFF events.
I think i over baked it a little cause the yolk was over cooked but we don't mind at all, it is just very very delicious. The next time i make this i will bake it for 20 minutes.

Turkish Minced Meat Pita

source: wendyinkk
Yield: 1 large pide

Pide dough:
125g flour (I used bread flour.)
20g water + 1/2 tsp instant yeast
20g natural yoghurt
20g milk (I used 30g.)
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
olive oil for brushing on after baked 

100g minced meat
1 tomato, seeds removed, diced
2 tbsp onion
2 tbsp chopped parsley (I used dried parsley)
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp salt
black pepper to taste
1 egg (for topping)

1) Dissolve yeast in water. Combine all ingredients for pastry & knead using hand for 2 minutes. Leave to proof (covered) for 2 hours.  

2) 30 minutes before end of proofing, combine all ingredients for  filling, except egg, & place the mixture in a colander to drain any liquid.

3) Preheat oven at 180 (fan) or 200 deg C.

4) Roll out dough into an oval, 5mm thick. Place dough on a baking paper which is placed on a dark-coloured baking tray. Put filling on the dough, leaving 1-inch border. Fold the sides in & pinch the ends together. Crack the egg onto the filling.

4) Bake for 30 minutes, until the dough turns golden brown. Remove pita from oven & brush the crust with olive oil. Serve warm.

Shark Fin Dumpling ~鱼翅饺

This Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow), is one of my favorite dumpling. Although it is named Shark Fin Dumpling, but they contain no actual shark fin in it. Some say the look and shape of the dumpling does look like shark fin and other do include in imitation shark fin, though. I am lucky to have spotted this long hibernating in the book shelf chinese dim sum book ‘香港地道小吃’ translated as 'Hong Kong Authentic Tapas' Well, Do, you find this look like Shark's Fin?? 看看形状像不像鱼翅呢??  Filling for the ingredients are prawn, mince meat, carrot, yam bean and black fungus. Get ready the filling and the wanton wrappers. This is the parade of my Shark's Fin dumpling ... lol Homemade parchment paper liner. Arrange them neatly into the bamboo steamer. HOT! HOT! From the steamer!! Loaded with filling ..YUM! ENJOY~ Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow) (Scallop dumpling /Cilantro dumpling - depends which filling you using) Recipe adapted from  ‘香港地

Old Fashion Kopi Tiam Bread Loaf 古早咖啡店面包

This is an old fashion kopi tiam (coffee shop) bread loaf. It has coarse texture but it is so soft and nice! This coarse texture kind of bread bring back many child hood memories! We use to have this type of bread in the local coffee shop. They will take two pieces of bread, make into a kaya butter sandwich, ( a piece spread with butter and the other piece spread with Kaya.) "I spread with my Homemade Kaya  ^_^   " Before i go further.... Zoe and I would like to give a big THANK to Joyce from Joy 'N' Escapade for being such a wonderful host for Little Thumbs Up - March.
