Yogurt is not a regular item in my fridge. I usually bought it when I have a specific baking project in mind. I don't use it often, so when I hold it for the baking matter, it always ended up in Mr. Bin's tummy (I just forgot about it), after weeks at the back of the fridge. Ahem..this remind me of someone :P Bottom line, they don't last long, that's why I don't use them often.
Well, things changed a couple of weeks ago. I cooked lamb chop masala, and the recipe called for some yogurt, added at the last stage of cooking. The dish turned unbelievably tasty. Since then, I put yogurt in everything I cooked, curries, ayam masak merah, chicken masala..just to name a few...and yogurt just sealed the dish perfectly!
It was love at the first
sight taste. Try add some yogurt inside your pancake batter, they'll turn out airy and fluffy. And if you happen to have a spicy or a over-salty dish, try add some yogurt, it works! I love the natural, plain yogurt the most and it has become my fav snack these few days. No, I'm not on diet.
The same goes to this meatball pilau rice, the addition of yogurt inside is just perfect- a mild hot dish. Love it! I think I'm gonna repeat it again for Ramadhan. And since I used a lot of yogurt nowadays, I think I'm gonna learn how to make them myself. Hmm..why not..wish me luck!
