Stir-fry Sea asparagus with mixed vegetables


Cooked this Stir-fry Sea asparagus with mixed vegetables for the reunion dinner.  It's easy and quick to whip up and the young lotus root slices stayed crunchy, sweet and tasty.


Chewy, sweet sea asparagus coupled with the sweet beans, carrot and lotus root makes a light and refreshing veggie dish!

  1. What a beautiful dish, it's so colorful and looks delightful! I loke lotus root, but it's hard to find it fresh around here. I usually get it packaged in our Asian store.

    For stir-fry, the lotus root must be young, whitish, not the brownish type that's meant for soup.

    Yes, totally agree with you.

    Very simple, just stir-fry only.

    You're right. We have been indulging in a lot of 'wrong' food during this period.

    Yes. Canned. Nowadays there are so many types of this shellfish, e.g. razor clams,pacific clams, limplets, just like abalone. Mine was Vittoria brand, cost RM21 per can. Other brands are Fortune and Besito. Funny, they are only on sale just before CNY.

    Maybe you can find them from those Asian grocers.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
