This year is our third time celebrating Hari Raya Aidiladha together :) If last year we had the privilege to host an open house, this year we decided to have a low-key celebration.

In the past, during Aidiladha, I used to bake my specialty cake - Kek Batik. The cake was so popular among friends that it'll be finished within only hours! This year, I decided to bake Kek Batik again, with the help of Suami Terchenta :

Using mixer which is our wedding gift from my darling sister, we whipped sugar, butter, eggs, flour and cocoa powder together.

This is an important ingredient to making Kek Batik - Marie Biscuits

The art of baking cake - aren't they pretty? -_-

Pour the batter into a saucepan and stir it all the time over slow fire

When it thickens, add in the biscuits. Lastly, when it's ready put it in a container and put a layer of clean plastic on top before pressing the cake until it is really compressed!

Tadah! The compressed cake! When it's cool, put them in the fridge :)

This is how it looks like after. Yummy!

For our Raya meal, we cooked chicken curry & chicken kurma and also bought some lemang to have them with:

Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha, everyone!
