Apart from being the main food, rendang can also be used as a snack. But not just to be eaten, it means you can process rendang meat with herbs and other ingredients to be used as a Curry puff filling. It tastes better than the Sardine or Potato pastels that you usually eat!

Pastry Ingredients:
Flour (250 grams)
Salt (1/4 teaspoon)
Vegetable oil (50 ml)
Water (100 ml)

How to make:
Make the pastry by mixing all ingredients and knead until smooth. Assemble it by taking the skin mixture, flattening it, filling it with Rendang, then folding and smoothing the edges. Fry in hot oil until cooked, and ready to serve!

Sometimes, we get so many gifts in the form of Kueh Raya from relatives and friends. Of course it’s nice to have some Kueh Raya at home, it’s just that sometimes we get the same types of Kueh Raya. To work around this, you can modify the existing Kueh Raya with the following recipe to make it different!

Kueh Raya of your choice (best to use butter cookies or peanut cookies)
Chocolate (1 block)
Roasted peanuts/cashews, roughly chopped (250 grams)

How to make:
Melt chocolate and roll the Kueh Raya into chocolate, then roll it into chopped nuts. Set aside until it hardens.

Selamat Hari Raya!
