Nyonya Pineapple Tarts 娘惹黄梨挞

This batch of pineapple tarts just for warm up before CNY ^_^. This time I wanted to tried this type of Nyonya pineapple tarts (open tart) which my friend Jane made it long time ago. This Nyonya type is different from my melt in mouth pineapple tart which the tart case tasted slightly crunchy. And this recipe is using margarine instead of butter.

Red bean & Mochi bread buns 红豆蔴糬面包

My kids like to buy a type of match bread that wrapped with red bean paste and mochi from a nearby bakery shop. Also a Instagram friend requested me to make a nice red bean and mochi that she has tasted. So this is my version of red bean and mochi buns.

Homemade red bean paste 自制红豆蓉馅料


Just like to record how to make red bean paste here. Normally i just make quick and easy version. Cook a pot of red bean soup, enjoy the soup and use the cooked red bean cook into red bean paste (add some sugar). This way you will have skin with the paste, sometime it taste a hint of bitterness from the skin. So this time i tried to make another method by removing the skin, and it taste really good. Furthermore, we can control the oil and sweetness when we homemade our red bean paste.

Mini muffin pancake 迷你玛芬松饼

My daughter's best friend came over to stay with us for couple of days. And since my kids are also not yet start schooling, So I was thinking to make some pancake for them as breakfast. While i was preparing, suddenly i changed my mind instead of pan fry them but bake them like muffin. I also tried to googled and found there are many recipes making the same way. So i have confident it will work well. And this method is so easy and quick, rather to pan fry them.

Butter Chicken 印度牛油咖喱鸡

Butter chicken is a classic Indian cuisine. Recently I just saw this recipe in a new cookbook that I bought, immediately bookmarked to try it out. Frankly, even though this cuisine so called butter chicken, but the butter amount used is very minimal only.

Tiger bread 老虎面包

I have been trying making this tiger bread for few months ago. But I couldn't achieve the nice crack effect, and almost wanted to drop the idea of making this bread. Until recently I found a cookbook that has this recipe, immediately try it out and great to see the nice effect.
