Minced meat omelette ~ 'Dan Kok'


I remember that my mum used to make this omelette for us and my siblings would run for the tomato ketchup and chilli sauce.  This was a very well received dish for us and I re-incarnated this recently ..... 'Dan Kok'.



First fry the seasoned minced pork with some oil, dish it up.
Then spoon some beaten egg onto the pan and add in the minced pork, fold it up.








This is a very easy-to-do omelette and I'm sure that your family members will love it just like mine.

Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2  tsp light soya sauce
  • 150 gm minced meat
  • Pepper
Seasoning for meat
  • 1/4  tsp salt and sugar
  • 1  tsp sesame oil
  • Pepper
Preparation
  1. Beat up the eggs and add in light soya sauce and pepper.
  2. Heat up a pan with some oil, stir-fry the minced meat till cooked.  Dish out.
  3. Add in more oil and  spoon about 2  Tbsp beaten egg onto the pan, add in the some minced meat in the centre.  Flip half of the batter over to form a crescent, turn over and fry the other side.
  4. Continue with the rest of the egg batter and minced meat.
  5. Dish out onto serving plate.
  6. Garnish with some chopped chilli.
  7. Serve immediately with white rice.

  3. That's a very smart way of hiding meat inside omelette. Looks pretty too. I think it's a good way to hide vegetables for picky kids :D

  6. I usually fry the minced meat first and then pour the beaten eggs into it and allow it to set before flipping over and they turned out looking like pancakes:D Your version looks prettier

  7. Yes I remember my mum used to make this dish but fried the eggs together with the meat. I like your folded omelette version, so sophisticated :)

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…
