My Quarantine life - Day 45, do what makes you happy!

See, Write, and Post-it. Our eyes see and record every memory that goes on in life.

I guess I had a lot of talent in my life, but cooking is not one of my talents. 😂

The truth is sad, I thought that I'd achieved almost everything in my life, but at a certain point, there's always something that I am not good at. This, make me realize that there's a lot of things I need to improve in myself. However, it's not an excuse for me or anyone to not try at least make something, we might felt that we a far behind than anybody else who did much better than us, but it's a regret of not trying to make something even it is a simple thing. 💗

So, today, I'm trying to make something, as I explore and expand my hobbies during this COVID19, I think it's a good thing to explore, can I or can't I make Pinjaram? Haha.

What is Pinjaram?

Pinjaram or Penyaram is a traditional food from the Brunei and state of Sabah, Malaysia (Bajau Ethnic). It is a popular food search on google since this quarantine. Try googling it.

I obtained this from Wikipedia

How I make my first trial Pinjaram? 

P/s: I don't have enough ingredients, so I just make whatever I like 😂


1 Cup of rice flour
1 Cup of wheat flour
1 Cup of warm water
A half-cup of sugar
A pinch of salt
A cooking oil

All these ingredients were mixed together and I left it overnight at least 8 hours.

The next day:

  1. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan (medium heat).
  2. Pour 1 tablespoon of the batter mixture in the middle (a mixture you left for overnight).
  3. The texture of the Pinjaram should be - round, curly at the sides, and slightly high in the middle.

I used the wrong frying pan, and too much cooking oil haha
My first trial of Pinjaram
Ready to be served haha
I made it, though they are different than those for sale. 😂 For a first trial, I think, that's okay.
