TAFTAN BREAD RECIPE

Taftan Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Taftan or taftoon  is a  leavened bread  hailed from Persia,  baked in a clay oven.

I  discover this flatbread while watching a cookery show on television,   I  did some research. found out that it  could be made without yeast with just water. milk or yogurt salt and whole wheat flour.   My Taftan Bread  recipe adapted  from various sources use yeast, milk and oil.

The dough was really sticky and hard to shape.  You can add some flour by a tablespoon but not too much otherwise it turns really hard.

On a floured board, roll out each ball into a circle.  thin it out  so the edges are thicker. Prick the dough  with fork leaving the sides.

I can't believe how much better this  Taftan Bread  tastes than takeaway flatbread, even my hubby wanted more!.

BRAIDED CINNAMON BREAD RECIPE

Braided Cinnamon Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Made from scratch,  this  Braided  Cinnamon Bread just got even better in shape and  taste.

You can also use this basic recipe to make a regular cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls,  sweet bun, monkey bread,  breakfast rolls and many more.  Simply  filling and shaping the base dough differently can result an entirely new product.

I have cut the dough  into  2 after shaping them into a log or you can easily turn it into one bigger loaf.

It smells wonderful while baking because of the addition of cinnamon.  The dough was easy to work with,   no additional flour required for mixing the dough.

Though my shaping wasn't  great but this Braided Cinnamon Bread is one of the best cinnamon rolls I ever made!

LEMON YOGURT CAKE RECIPE

Lemon Yogurt Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.bkogspot.com

Super easy, quick and delicious Lemon Yogurt Cake  made with lemon zest, lemon juice and  and   topped with lemon frosting.

This cake uses vegetable oil and not butter as compared with other recipes.  At first, am reluctant to try it since it contains  high sugar in the cake plus for the frosting.

Surprisingly this Lemon Yogurt Cake has a right amount of sweetness and the best part was the frosting, it gives a wonderfully lemon  flavor. This will be my new to go recipe.

AGAR AGAR GUDIR RECIPE

Agar Agar Gudir Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


A popular dessert during  fasting month made with agar agar powder and  coconut milk.

This Agar Agar Gudir tastes even better with addition of  gula melaka (palm sugar),  If using this sugar you need not add any coloring at all.

Bought a red color agar2 powder so I use white sugar.  Make sure to purchase a colorless pack if you intend to add palm sugar.

The secret to a perfect Agar Agar  Gudir are:

1.  Sugar must be dissolved completely and it should be rolling boiling before you add coconut,

2,  After adding  egg mixture, it should be boiled until  the eggs curdle into  tiny bits.  This would make your Agar Agar  into 2 layers and looks very pretty.

BAKED VEGGIE SAMOSA RECIPE

Baked Veggie Samosa Recipe  @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A healthy version of  classic Samosa stuffed with fresh vegetables, made from scratch.

This famous fried snack from Indian subcontinent  are well liked and enjoyed around the globe.   Mostly they are deep fried and stuffed with vegetarian or non vegetarian fillings.

If you are looking for  an alternative way to eat them, this Baked Veggie Samosa is the solution.  These are stuffed with fresh vegetables  I  have on hand, capsicum, carrot, potato and tomato.

When mixing the dough, add water little by little.  You may not need to add the specified amount as per the recipe.

I did not boil the potato before hand but straight away add them to the spices and sprinkle with some water to let them become tender..

My Baked Veggie Samosa turned  out amazing, pastry is wonderful with crisp crust.   This one is a keeper!.
