Cek Mek Molek

OMG...I've neglected this blog for more than 2 months!

Not that I didn't cook for the past 2 months, I did...but I was busy with life, hence blogging about cooking is not a priority in daily activities.

Well, this time around I think I should continue blogging about what I have cooked. It may be just the normal, typical food but we are in the internet world, where most people doing search by using Google and perhaps that simple, normal food for you, is something new to somebody else. Maybe I could introduce a food that one probably never heard of, right?

So let´s see I want to blog about....

Cek Mek Molek!

I bet even for some Malays, this delicacy sounds alien to them. Cek Mek Molek is a traditional Kelantan cuisine (my husband comes from there), eaten as a snack. The main ingredient is the sweet potatoes, mixed with wheat flour, a bit of margarine/butter and has sugar filling. I´m not really a sweet tooth person but I made it for my husband.

I took the recipe from Mesra.Net

The ingredients are:

1. Sweet potatoes

2. Wheat flour

3. Margarine

4. Sugar

5. Sugar

6. Cooking oil for frying


1. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into small pieces. Put them into pot and cover with cold water. Add some salt. Bring to boil or until the sweet potatoes become soft.

2. Drain the sweet potatoes and mash it. Add wheat flour and margarine (proportion the amount until you are able to make a dough of the mixture).

3. Take some portion, make a ball (about a ping-pong ball size). Then press it flat. Put a small amout of sugar in the middle. Fold the dough to cover the sugar and form it into long oval shape (I made it just oval)

4. Deep fry until golden colour.

Easy, eh?
