Another new try-out. Homemade Naan and Chicken Curry Masala.
I almost changed the menu today as I started cooking quite late. These two recipes needed to be marinated and left for at least two hours. But Alhamdulillah, I managed to get everything done just in time. So my family members get to eat the Naan hot and fresh from the Happy Call Pan.
Furthermore, I have my two little kiddos to help me to finish making the Naan. They just came back from school and were eager to help out. Actually they just wanted to play around with the dough, flour and rolling pin. But their Naan turned out to be perfect.

I woke up with a migraine today. I almost scrapped the idea of preparing today’s meal, because today’s meal was really time-consuming. But I was adamant to follow strictly what I have planned on my menu list, so I still prepared the meal.
For the first time ever, I made Roti Kirai. It was really time-consuming, and messy too. It took me about one hour to complete them. Roti Kirai always goes with Chicken Curry.
I am so happy with the outcome. I did it! 🙂

Another satisfying day. Alhamdulillah.
As per my menu, I specially prepared Mee Soto and Bagedil for today’s meal. It took me almost two hours to cook, but as Hubby said, it took only 5 minutes to finish up. I prepared everything from scratch.
I always prefer Mee Hoon or Kuey Tiaw to yellow noodles. But the people in the house like yellow noodles, so I bought both.
Believe it or not, this is the first time I made these Bagedil. I always thought it’s too time consuming to make these. After making it, it is still time consuming, but satisfaction is guaranteed. I purposed made these into bite sizes. It took longer time to complete, but it’s easier to be eaten. I love to dip these Bagedil into Sambal Kicap Cili Padi. Heaven!
Reminder for myself from my Dhuha class :
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَّا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ
“Oh you who believe! Save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is Men and Stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who flinch not (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do (precisely) what they are commanded.” ~ QS At-Tahrim 66:6
– Make supplication for ourselves FIRST, before supplicating for others.
– Bring ourselves closer to Allah FIRST, before asking others to be closed to Allah. Always start the good deeds first.
The Imam of our house, is finally home. Alhamdulillah.
