Salam and hello,
first of all i would like to wish all my fellow muslim readers "happy fasting". this time around i'm having a rather challenging fasting days...*sighh~* because i now have no maid to help me with house chores and cooking...so as you might have guess thats the reason that you haven't seen me uploading my cooking/baking ever so often...well.. not that because i don't cook at all its just that i'm tired, i supposed too tired to find a nice light for the food and snap it (mm what a waste). to some people doing house chores is EASY and can be done in a blink, but to me with 2 hyper active children the chores seems to be never ending its a miracle that i could even have a 'ME' time or a nice nap in the afternoon....*long sighhhh~* between cooking and cleaning i have to crack my brain in designing headbands, sewing and crafting and then sell them...and also sewing some beads embroidery (although i only take a couple of request but i'm worried if i couldn't finish it in time for eid).
anyhow...in this entry i'd like to simply write about spices. i know some of you are wondering about some of the spices we asian use, so this entry is dedicated to those who is in ignorance of the splendour of spices.... =p
this is one of the spice used in curry making.
Star Anise / Bunga Lawang
it is shapes like a star hence the name...and has a strong aroma, it'll spice kick your curry and have that aromatic umph.
I can't think of anymore spice for me to put here....hmmm....i hope that this is sufficient enough as reference. Also i'd like to informe that all pictures here are not mine, i've 'borrowed' it from several sites and i sincerely hope that the owners don't mind, as i'm using it as 'educational' purpose but if you are unhappy with it, i'll be happy to delete the pictures.
