Bubur Manado / Tinutuan

Tinggal jauh dari Indonesia memang membuat kita sering kangen makan makanan khas dari daerah kita. Bahan-bahan yang sulit di dapat juga merupakan kendala utama untuk menikmati makanan yang kita kangeni. Tapi untuk mengobati kangen, mau tidak mau harus lebih pintar mengakali resep.

Salah satu contohnya adalah resep bubur manado, atau yang lebih kenal orang manado dengan nama 'Tinutuan'. Isi dari tinutuan pun sangat beragam, mulai dari beras, jagung, bayam, kangkung, daun gedi, singkong, labu kuning, dan daun kemangi.

Manado/Minahasan Food : Ayam Rica-Rica (half instant)

Ayam rica-rica is a very famous Manadonese dish among non-Manado/Minahasa people. The word "rica" means chili, so it is very obvious that ayam rica-rica is supposed to be spicy. But if you are not a big fan of hot food, don't worry because the amount of chili can be adjusted according to your preference.

Manado/Minahasa Food : Rica Rodo

Some minahasan or manadonese food such as ayam rica-rica or bubur manado (tinutuan) are very well known. But only few know about rica rodo. From its first word 'rica', it is supposed to be spicy. Yes, it is. But it is far from ayam rica-rica, because rica rodo is a vegetable dish.

Eggplant Pizza

Unlike in Indonesia or Singapore, eggplants are not always available everyday or every season in Germany supermarket. This week they were available in supermarket, so I bought one piece of it. At that time I still could not figure out what to cook with this eggplant.

Prawn Pesto Pasta

Do you feel like eating italian pasta, but tomato-based pasta sounds too mainstream?
This week I bought some items out of our normal shopping list, like fresh basil leaves, olives pickle, pesto and eggplant. So I decided to cook my own version of prawn pesto pasta.

Apple Cinnamon Cake with Almond and Raisins

If you're looking for a failproof cake recipe, I think apple cinnamon cake is one of them. I can consider myself successfully made the cake in first try. It is yummy, moist, and easy to make. Apple cinnamon cake is perfect for breakfast or tea time, or maybe for hungry time in odd hour.

Dark Choco Puding with Fla

“Anything is good if it's made of chocolate.” ― Jo Brand

I love puding in any form or flavour. It's yummy and kills some guilty feeling in me that I've eaten some fibres after a meal.

Indonesian version of puding are mostly made of agar powder instead of gelatin powder or sheet. It is very difficult to find agar powder in Munich. I bought one 2 sachets of agar powder at an indonesian store here. The transparent (written as white) color one costs around Euro 1,-. I was crying inside knowing that in Indonesia it costs much less than that. But the price was worthed, my husband love it and I love it too.
