Curry Chicken Buns



Instead of cracking my head over what to cook for dinner,  I made these ........'Curry Chicken Buns', spicy, meaty and chewy!  I managed to get 10 buns and there were some left over for lunch the next day too. This is really killing two birds with one stone!






An interesting note on curry leaves.  These leaves are extremely high in vitamin C, therefore will help clean up your blood leaving your skin with a fresh glow and your hair with more lustre and your eyes with brilliance.  Also they will help increase your level of calcium and iron too.  So the next time when you come across curry leaves in your curry mee, don't discard them, gobble them up, it's good for you!






These were yummy and I will be making more of these spicy buns for sure, perhaps of a different shape.

    Ya, I'm not a 'fan toong' too, prefer to make buns or cook noodles. Find it difficult to take the photos sometimes, because my hand shake!

    High protein flour is for making bread, maybe it's referred to as bread flour in your area. Not sure whether you can use ordinary flour, never tried before. Suppose you can, but maybe the texture will be different, not that chewy.

    Elin, yes they were delicious, ahem!

    Kristy
    Oh yes, they can be filling, especially after drinking a cup of hot coffee!

    Shirley
    Yes, spicy and savoury.

    how to do the mixing of the dough and
    for how long.
    Many thanks,

    1. Hi, I've made bread by hand before. If you don't have a bread machine, perhaps you can view my other recipes using the cake mixer's dough hook. Hope this helps.

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 :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
