Just mix all the ingredients for marinate. Leave for few minutes/hours/over night. It does not matter. I am not that particular about that 😀 The process is similar like Version 1. Mix all together. No fancy stuff.
Well, it is not Durham recipe, but it is a recipe that I used to cook BBQ chicken wings when I was in Durham. After searching my recipe book (uhuk uhuk I sound like a professional chef, right? 😀 ), I find the recipe. Here is the recipe for version 1. There is another version. Version 2 (also can be categorised as whatever-ingredients-that-you-have-in-kitchen recipe)
I call it as “Resipi tak cukup bahan versi 1” [Translated: Insufficient ingredients recipe Version 1]
Sweet soy sauce
Crushed black pepper
Note: As you can see, there is no specific measurement. It is just according to my hunch and the availability of the ingredients. 😀 I don’t know how it tastes though. It has become a distant memory. But, my PRs say that my BBQ chicken is delicious
This is one of my famous signature dishes when I was in Durham. The ingredients are simple yet now it is difficult to find some of it in Malaysia. So, I don’t make any now. Well, I can easily go to Nando’s or Kenny Roger’s or Pizza Hut to eat this. I don’t have to prepare it myself.
The recipe? I need to find my cook book where I wrote all the recipes of the dishes that I cooked in Durham. Once upon a time ago. Indeed.
It has been a while since the last time I baked something for Eid. I think it was two years ago, when I made chocolate chips and almond london biscuit for Eid. Last year, even though I bought some ingredients to bake chocolate chips, but I didn’t feel like I wanted to celebrate Eid at all. The passing of my mom in September 2017 still has its effect on me. But, I still remember when I lost my dad in 2009, my mom insisted us to keep the tradition alive i.e. the tradition of preparing cookies and whatsnot for Eid. It was some of the things that she normally used to do without fail before Eid. Being me, I would rather buy than bake unless I have to.
I know that I baked a lot when I was doing my PhD as compared to now (post PhD period). I guess at that time, I enjoyed baking and cooking because whatever I baked and cooked would be enjoyed by many people i.e. my housemates and #60 Steavenson Stresst PRs.
But, today I baked brownie cookies (I get the recipe from Youtube). Since I didn’t have the exact ingredients that they use, I improvised. I didn’t know how it will turn out because I am fasting (at the moment of writing this post).
Here are the pictures that I took: Before and after.
P.S: I know that the shapes and sizes are not standardised but I don’t care. I just let it be that way. After all, I am pretty sure that I will be the ONLY one who eat this and there is no way that I serve this to any guest who come to my house during Eid.
