Laz böreği / Turkish Custard Pastry Dessert

Selam . Merhaba from Türkey.

Börek’ is usually savory, filled with meat or cheese or even vegetables. 
But my today post is one of Turkish dessert called ‘Laz böreği’   (LAHZ’ buer-EY’-ee)
İt’s not savory borek that commonly known.

İt's a sweet dessert, made from layers of phyllo dough ( Türk; baklavalık yufka) and a filled with delish creamy vanilla custard. 
The best way to describe ‘Laz böreği’ is like a baklava filled with rich vanilla custard instead of pistachio or nuts.


Laz’ is the nickname in Turkish given to people from Black sea region - where this dessert come from


What makes this dessert really unique is its secret ingredient – black pepper! ‘Laz böreği’ made the traditional way, has generous amounts of black pepper added to the custard.
But for my version İ added small pinch of nutmeg powder also to give richness to the custard, you can skip that or try my version.

The recipe is for 30 x 40 cm baking tray, fit with baklava phyllo size. But İf you have small family member you can half the recipe and cut phyllo in half. So you will need 15 x 20 cm baking tray.
This dessert best consume while still fresh and crunchy so you don't want too many left over.

Every 1 kg chicken (other poultry) you will need about ½ cup of piri piri sauce plus for basting during grilling. Or one whole chicken (about 2 kg) you will need about 1½ cup plus basting during grilling.
Marinate the chicken with the sauce and keep in fridge at least 3 hours before grilled / roasting.
You may prepare the marinating a night before to be grilled in the next day.

Selam everybody..... Merhaba from Türkiye.

İ love to cook. A lot!
When İ was single, even İ lived alone İ tried to cook for my self when İ wasn't too tired from work. Or İ cooked mostly at weekend together with my friends.

And early time I married my husband, İ spent most of my time in kitchen.
Experimented and tried some new recipes İ never cooked before. More over İ should learn how to cook Turkish food for my husband. So kitchen is my new office after İ got married.

Then there come new phase in my life when İ had my baby. İ couldn't stay in my kitchen as much as before.
Things got changed. İ increased my new interest on sewing and crocheting-and my kitchen schedule less and less for new experiment except fast and easy daily meal for us.

Busy in kitchen still my biggest yearning. So as my kid getting bigger, İ try to be busy trial and error for new recipe in the kitchen ( İ finally succeed bake macarons! ... yay! 😄) 
But still İ need to lessen my time in kitchen cause my kid need more attention and more my present. 


Then İ finally manage having fun in kitchen yet still can play with my kid. İ sometimes bring her to the kitchen to help me - of course an easy part for her 😍
You can see some pictures post of her during makes cake or cookies with me 😊

And now İ found new way to cook fast and serve various menus for my family-- İ make some spices mixture or spice sauce in advance! 
You should check my Yemeni spice Hawaij mix and Turkish spice mix (baharat karışımı) İ posted previously.

And also İ make some frozen friendly recipe --if you are my regular readers you should probably notice that 😃
Check my homemade chicken nugget, shrimps cake "dragon feet", chicken kebab, cheesy chicken balls and more.

Today İ am going to share my new fave spice; Portuguese Piri Piri sauce.
Chicken and poultry are most repeatable protein source in our house so this piri piri sauce is one from many other chicken meal served on our dinner table.

İndonesian shrimp cake "dragon feet". Freezer friendly (Kaki Naga Udang)


Resep dalam bhs İndonesia ada dibagian bawah.



Selam everybody.....Merhaba from Turkey.

Indonesian cuisine often demonstrates complex flavour, acquired from certain ingredients and bumbu spices mixture. Indonesian dishes have rich flavours; most often described as gurih (savory which equate to umami) and pedas (hot and spicy), and also combination of basic tastes such as manis (sweet), asin (salty), asam (sour) and pahit (bitter). 
Seven main Indonesian cooking methods are goreng (frying), bakar (roasting) or panggang (grilling), tumis (sautéing), sangrai (roasted), rebus (boiling) and kukus (steaming).

Throughout it's history, İndonesian has been involved in trade due to its location and natural resources. Additionally İndonesian indigenous techniques and ingredient were influenced by İndia, middle eastern, China, even Europe.

And as archipelago country with the longest coastline on earth İndonesia has countless type of fish and seafood as protein source beside poultry and meat.


And my today post is one of everybody's favorite and any kids will love it, call "kaki naga". "Kaki naga" literally means dragon feet 😊 . Don't ask me why we call this food dragon feet.. İ don't think it's looking like dragon feet either.

Anyway, this "kaki naga" mostly using minced fish as main ingredient, sometime combine with chicken or shrimp as well. But today İ am going to share shrimp version of "kaki naga" / dragon feet. İ combine with chicken meat to ease the sharp of shrimp taste and also to add texture of final product because when İ use whole shrimp, sometimes it end up with more runny batter. 

So.. if you ready to try new cuisine for your family.. note this recipe down. Believe me your kids would love it too! 😏
And more...it's freezer friendly and can be your another idea for your kid's or your family lunch box!
