Roti Paung Terengganu

The current craze in the house,  roti paung.  I love roti paung homemade.  Tak suka store bought sebab rasa dry and sometimes stale.  Roti paung kalau kat KT,  paling femes kat Shell Batu Buruk.  Pada aku,  not at all.  It's nothing to shout about.  Sigh..  Maybe sebab aku ni perfectionist.  Iffah is also a perfectionist!!  Ada pros and cons to that. 

Anyway,  this recipe aku alter a bit from my previous roti paung recipe. 

Roti Paung

500 gram tepung high protein  aka bread flour
100 gram caster sugar
80 gram salted butter - softened
2 1/2 tsp dry yeast
1 tsp GR superbake (kalau takde,  boleh omit)
50 gram susu tepung
250 gram ais sejuk dicampur ais

Cara2

1. Masukkan tepung, susu tepung, yeast, gula ke dalam bekas. Kacau guna whisk.
2. Buatkan lubang di tengah, masukkan butter dan air.
3. Dengan menggunakan dough hook, uli sampai sebati (lebih kurang dalam 20 minit) sehingga dough tidak melekat pada bekas.
4. Biarkan dough naik sekali ganda.
5. Panaskan oven to 180 degree celcius.  Grease 2 bekas bulat berukuran 9 inci dan 8 inci dengan butter.
6. Kemudian, tumbuk dough yang telah naik.Bahagikan dough kepada 30gram each, susun kedalam bekas bulat yang sudah digrease.
7. Biarkan dough naik sekali ganda, kemudian masukkan kedalam oven dan bakar selama 25-30 minit.
8. Keluarkan roti yang telah masak, grease dengan butter on top.

p/s : to those yang suka buttery paung, grease bottom of pan dengan margerine yang banyak sebelum diletakkan dough.

Tepung Bokoh

Tepung bokoh adalah sejenis kuih lama yang memang susah nak cari sekarang.  Kuih yang seakan sama adalah tepung talam but still rasa berbeza.
Dulu masa mula2  kawin,  aku suka sangat beli tepung bokoh from makcik tua kat pasar jertih.  Her tepung bokoh is to die for,  memang sedap.  Tapi lepas tu,  dah tak jual.  Makcik2 kat situ kata dia dah sakit tua.  Maybe now dah meninggal..  Sedih sgt
Ramadhan ni tiba2  mok teringin nak makan tepung bokoh.  Bila tanya mok,  main ingredient untuk tepung bokoh,  mok kata tepung beras.  So aku pun apa lagi,  cuba la reka recipe sendiri.  Alhamdulillah,  mok kata sangat sedap.  Yay!!  My tepung bokoh is a bit sweet sebab mok suka manis.  Please omit gula pasir kalau nak kurangkan manis.

The recipe is as below

Lapisan bawah
550gram nisang or gula merah
100 gram gula pasir (boleh omit kalau tak suka manis)
250gram tepung beras
1 tsp kapur
1.8litre air.

Lapisan atas
500ml santan pekat
1 litre air
150gram tepung beras
1 sudu kapur
2 tsp garam

Cara2
1. Lapisan bawah -  campur semua bahan,  make sure tepung beras tak berketul ,  kacau atas api sampai adunan menjadi likat dan berkilat.  Tuang dalam bekas.
2. Lapisan atas -  campur semua bahan,  make sure tepung beras tak berketul,  kacau sampai likat dan berkilat,  tuang keatas bekas yang mengandungi lapisan bawah,  sejukkan.
Tepung bokong ni lembut.  Bila nak makan kena scoop,  but memang sedap.  ����
