Sweet and Sour Chili Crab

I've been longing to do this dish ever, since d.j doesn't eat seafood. i miss eating seafood...... I and mom bought these really fresh crabs and alive with lots of eggs in it at the market that we visit every Saturday. It's unbelievably delicious. I couldn't imagine that I could do such dish myself :p

Sweet and Sour Chili Crab

3 medium size crabs, cleaned and parted
Red onion
Chilies, blended until smooth
Tomato sauce
Sweet Soy sauce / Kecap manis
Black pepper
Cooking oil

How to:

1. Heat oil and saute the garlic, red onion, onion, and scallion until softened and add in Chili paste. Keep in stirring.

2. Add in tomato sauce, sweet soy sauce, water, sugar, salt and black pepper. Give it a taste and it should be sweet with a bit of sourness and spicy.

3. Add in crabs and let it cook for a while until the they are cooked and sauce has thickened.

Strawberry Yoghurt Ice Pops

Me and d.j are so much into Sour Sally these days hehehe.... Everytime we visit a mall we'd look for Sour sally. We had it yesterday also at MTA after lunch, luckily the queu wasn't as crazy as Senci. But we spend our weekends mostly in Senci and the line's so unbelievable loooong. So, I tried to make these yoghurt pops for us to enjoy to satisy our craving for frozen yoghurt :p

Strawberry Yoghurt Ice Pops
A pack of fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
6 packs of yoghurt (I mixed 2 plains and 4 strawberry flavoured)
Honey to your sweetness
Ice pop mold (for me plastic will do, next time i'd buy the mold :p)

How to:

Place strawberries and honey into a blender and blend until it becomes smooth. Pour over a fine strainer and discard the seeds.

Mix in yoghurt and stir until well combined. Pour into ice pop mold and freeze. In case of using plastic like me, you need a funnel to help you out avoiding the mess. Spare some length for tide up at the plastic mouth and freeze. Just like our childhood snack, but we used sweetened tea or greenpeal instead *hmm......*
