Here’s the simple recipe.

Mind you, I do a lot of  “eye-balling ” when it comes to the quantity of the ingredients, so, I apologise for that if it makes it difficult to follow through with the recipe.

I’ll start with the list of ingredients:

  • Wholemeal bread slices
  • brown sugar
  • eggs
  • milk
  • vanilla essence
  • cinnamon powder
  • raisins
  • toasted almond flakes (more…)

I’m the home chef this weekend …

What begins as a small birthday party for about a dozen or so people, turned out to be a party of 30 people. Syafie must be happy with so many friends around. Even one of the coaches of his Taekwondo sparring class dropped by to celebrate his birthday.

What scared me though was that I did not have enough food for so many guest. I initially had the following on the menu.

  • Lamb Stew
  • Couscous
  • Rice Pilaf
  • Chicken Frankfurters
  • Tuna Avocado Salad
  • Potato Salad
  • Sweet Bread

When I knew more were coming, I decided to whip up another dish … “Bubba’s Sloppy Joe” my quick fix to entertaining guests. It’s very quick to make. Here’s the recipe.

Cucumber-Carrot-Mint Raita

Raita is a raw vegetable, yogurt based salad, not unlike coleslaw other than the yogurt for the dressing. There are lots varieties of recipe for this salad, but I like mine with mint. I mentioned about this dish briefly in my previous posting, so, I thought I’d share the recipe, my version, of this very cooling salad.

Cucumber Carrot Mint Raita

  • 1 cup shreaded cucumber (squeeze the moisture out as much as possible)
  • 1 cup shreaded carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup low fat yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

Mix everything up and chill in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes before serving. Easy peasy …

This salad goes with just about anything, even just on it’s own. My kids love it and it a good way to introduce fresh raw vegetables to their diet. It’s good for me too …..

Tuna Avocado Salad

I saw this recipe done on TV, but I cannot remember when and by whom. Even the exact recipe cannot be recalled exactly. So, based on whatever I can remember, and some skills I acquired while helping my mom in the kitchen, I whipped up my version on the Tuna Avocado Salad.

Tuna – Avocado Salad

  • 2 medium sized Avocado (remove skin and pit. chopped roughly into 1 cm squares)
  • 1 can (approx. 186 gm) Tuna in Olive Oil
  • 1 Japanese cucumber (chopped into 1 cm squares approximately)
  • 1 large tomato (remove the seeds and chopped into 1 cm squares)
  • 1/2 cup chopped corriander leaves
  • 1/2 cup chopped spring onion
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • freshly ground black pepper.

Just mix everything in a bowl, while breaking the tuna chunks into smaller pieces. Do not throw away the olive oil in the canned tuna. Mix the olive oil with the juice of 1 lemon, it's a very flavourful dressing. A basic salad dressing is 1 part acid (the lemon juice) to 3 parts oil. So, if need to, adjust the lemon juice to taste. Lastly season with black pepper to taste.

Chill the salad in the refrigerator before serving.

This recipe nicely serves 4 to 5 people.

My kids just love this. I like this because the only processed protein in this recipe is the canned tuna. The rest of the ingredients are fresh produce with the nutrients intact. It's a good way to add vegetables to the childrens' diet.
