Matcha Swiss Roll With Delicious White Chocolate Cream

I have considered the possibility of this recipe attempt becoming a nightmare. There are many challenges to overcome while making this roll: (1) the cake batter has to be baked just right (not too dense); (2) the cream mixture has to be whipped just right (not overwhipped); (3) the log has to be rolled up just right (not too loose). Also, I took a risk when I decided to pipe two stripes of red bean paste over the roll.

Something simple and which will not require too much cleaning up.

Spicy Sambal Roti John

Roti John is a popular dish found within Southeast Asia, a dish that apparently originated from Singapore. ‘Roti’ means bread, and ‘John’ seems to be a name given by the British colonialists to the native vendors back then. Baguettes are used as the key ingredient to make this bread dish, sliced into half loaves, dipped in an egg mixture and then cooked with onion and meat, either beef or chicken as it is served mainly by Muslim vendors. It can serve as a side dish, or as a filling meal in itself.
