It has been a while since my last post and if this blog was a child, I would be an abusive and neglectful parent. But much has changed in my life since the new year and cooking has not been a priority at the moment. Some of these changes include: quitting my job, starting uni again and buying my first car. You might not think these changes are that monumental, but I have never dealt well with change…especially when it involves leaving behind familiar people and plunging into a new social environment. So as an excuse to write a post about my insecurities, here’s some things I’ve made recently.
A potato rosti
I was inspired after watching some people make it on My Kitchen Rules. Yes, I am time poor but still find time to indulge in reality tv…
I’ve tried making rosti before and it really is quite simple. After grating one raw floury potato, I added half a whisked egg and 2 tbsp of flour until sticky and not soggy. I then heated up some oil until hot and made four deliciously crispy servings. I can only imagine it going well with some smoked salmon which I unfortunately did not have at the time.
Another thing I had recently was some kaya toast! I have heard a lot about this phenomenal brownish spread and have always wanted to try some. My cousin bought some when he stopped over in Singapore and wow is it good! I can’t really describe how it tastes like but its got a similar addictive quality like sweetened condensed milk. It goes well with a bit of butter on toast.
As you can see, I didn’t really use much Kaya… I need to make it last as long as possible haha
