FMTSO: The letter T

T is for Takoyaki, a Japanese snack originated from Osaka.
Takoyaki are also known as octopus (tako) balls.
To make takoyaki, a cast iron or electric takoyaki pan with many half-spherical molds is used. It’s basically a flavored batter with a tiny piece of octopus (tako) inside, and is a quintessential street food snack. The balls are served with takoyaki sauce or Worcestershire sauce, mayonnaise and fish flakes. These were made by the younger son, and he used prawns instead of octopus, which were put inside the balls.

Tarts for Tea, a perfect Treat for anyone! Pineapple Tarts are the must-have treat served to guests during the New Year celebrations for the Malay, Indian and Chinese here in Singapore. The filling is the grated pineapple cooked with sugar and some spices till caramelized. These are recently baked for my guests during the Eidul Fitri celebrations .
