Cereal Chicken Chop


'Cereal Chicken Chop' ......... After trying out the 'Cereal Prawns' I experimented the premix cereal with chicken but this time I omitted the bird eye chillies.  In fact this cereal is very versatile, can be used for fish fillet as well!  Result, just one word ...... Yummy!



Just pan fry the marinated chicken thigh, once cooked, dish out.  Melt some butter, stir-fry the curry leaves, cereal mix and return the chicken into the mixture and you are done.






Dish out the chicken pieces onto a serving plate, add in some cucumber slices, shredded carrots and cabbage, sprinkle on some lime, and dinner is ready .............. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 3 chicken legs, skin removed and deboned
  • 40 gm cereal mix
  • 1 Japanese cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 1 stick carrot, shredded
  • Some cabbage, shredded
  • 1 to 1.1/2 Tbsp margarine/butter
  • 2 to 3 kaffir ~ limau kasturi leaves, optional
  • Oil for frying
Preparation
  1. Wash and pat dry the chicken legs.
  2. Pan fry the chicken legs in a non-stick pan, flip from side to side till thoroughly cooked.  Dish out.
  3. Wash the pan, heat up some butter, once melted, toss in the curry leaves and stir-fry.
  4. Add in the cereal mix and  the cooked chicken pieces.  Stir-fry and dish out onto serving plates.
  5. Garnish with the cucumber slices, shredded carrot and cabbage.
  6. Squeeze some lime onto the salad if desired.

    If you go to my 'Cereal Prawns' recipe there's a pic of the premix.
    It's oats with some premix, think some salt, sugar, pepper, maybe some ajimoto. Come to think of it, used to have Nestum dishes in the restaurant menu, but this has faded somewhat.

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
