MAL'S HALF CENTURIAN COOK BOOK - Fundamental Cooking Recipes -

This time I would like to share fundamental/basic cooking recipes.The series will be extracted from my collection of tested recipes from my personal collection recipe book that I have created since I was still small - approaching teens. The book is nearing to it's half century .

It's time to be shared to all especially to those who will be staying away from parents,without maid,alone ,out of our country where things are expensive to buy outside and doubtful on 'halal' status...

Even though now you could find ready to serve package such as nescafe 3 in 1 ,tea 3 in 1, instant ........somehow the fundamental basic recipes need to be preserved..for the younger generation views..

This is good reference for the children who were not taught of "Kemahiran Hidup" or "Home Science" at school or at home...

Let's start with something simple as soon as you wake-up....


This is when you have to prepare milk using milk powder.


2 tablespoon milk powder
1 pint warm water


Measure the warm water into a jug
Sprinkle the milk powder on the water
Whisk with fork until free from lumps.Nowadays you can look for instant milk powder that will not lump.

You can have your favourite cereal with milk (chill)....

2 teasp.cocoa powder
1 pt milk

Blend cocoa powder with 2 or 3 tablespoonful of milk .
Boil the rest of the milk in a milk saucepan .
When the milk boils,pour it over the blended cocoa and stir it
Rinse the saucepan and return the cocoa to the pan to boil again
Boil the cocoa for 3 minutes,pour it into warmed jug and serve it with sugar served separately
