This fried rice really kampong style, got kangkung (water spinach), petai (stink beans), and ikan bilis ( anchovies), all are my favourite ! And I especially like the crunchy caramelized ikan bilis, so yum!
Do you know this famous mooncake from Kluang居銮 ( a small town located at the state of Johor in Malaysia) ? I also recently know this mooncake. According to Johorkaki, Yuen Fatt 源發餅家was the first bakery shop to introduce the Shanghai style of mooncakes in Malaysia. And they shaped the Shanghai mooncake in an unique way that look like rugby ball for me, but some said it look like a mouse, a fox or fish. When my mom first look at this mooncake, she said it look like tortoise ^_^ (For Chinese, tortoise is a good symbol of long life). Anyway, i didn't get a chance to try the real Kluang mooncake. So i have to do it myself according to the taste that i read on few website. The outer pastry as described is melt-in-mouth type, immediately i think of my pineapple tart's pastry.
My little son Desmond like Madeleine a lot. It started when both of us watching a Taiwan TV drama together (the story line was about baking and love) the other day. He was attracted by this Madeleine and requested me to make for him. At first, I was using the recipe provided in the drama which required to rest the batter overnight in the fridge. The madeleine turned out to be hard and quite dry but my son finished them all. I guess this recipe was failed due to no raising agent is added.
This is another work under 吃饱饭没事做 ? (Having nothing better to do after being fed) ^_^. Actually I was busy yesterday but some how I decided to make this Siew Bao which I have been wanting to get my hands on how to homemade this yummy Siew Bao.
If just eating fried dumplings alone, I feel is a bit plain, usually I prefer to cook a small bowl of sweet and sour sauce to dip with the fried dumplings. My kids can't have enough if I prepare this dumplings.
I started to feel lazy to update blog after rest for few days. But I have few recipes still pending to update as per my Instagram reader's requested. One of the recipe is this Walnut butter cake, and this cake is one of my favourite butter cake. If I could recall, my old recipe was way back in 2009.
This was my first time tried out this simple Chinese potato dish. According to here, 洋芋叉叉 is a popular Chinese potato dish. I use the cast iron wok to stir fry this potato dish, and we can smell the smoky aroma (wok hei) ^_^.
Since LTU theme this month is Potato, so I have to rush to put up this recipe chicken curry, and curry must have potato then taste better. I got this idea to cook this chicken curry using blue ginger after tasted a nice chicken curry from a Hainanese rice stall. Their chicken curry has a special aroma, after few times trying, then I confirmed that special aroma was from blue ginger. And this chicken curry is much healthy without putting coconut milk, but yet the curry sauce still taste creamy and thick, and yummy too.
