Green Chilli Chicken


I have tasted this dish many, many years ago but somehow it had never crossed my mind to cook this.  But then this morning I saw quite a lot of fresh green chillies in the market place going for a fairly cheap price and  it struck me to replicate this dish ............. yummy!








This dish is not spicy but it does have a bit of 'heat' because of the green chillies which is mild but bearable. I'm sure kids will not encounter much difficulty eating this with rice.

Ingredients
  • 600 gm free-range chicken, skin removed, cut into bite size
  • 5 green chillies, seeded and cut into small pieces
  • 1 small knob young ginger, cut
  • 12 shallots - cut
  • 1.1/2  tsp tau cheong, preserved bean paste
  • 1 tsp each of :  sugar, salt and oyster sauce
  • 1/2  tsp dark soya sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp oil
Preparation
  1. Wash the chicken pieces and season with a teaspoon salt, set aside.
  2. Blend the green chillies, garlic, shallots and ginger.
  3. Heat up the wok with the oil and saute the blended ingredients.
  4. Add in the tau cheong, dark soya sauce, oyster sauce and sugar, simmer for a while.
  5. Mix in the chicken pieces, stir-fry and add in 3/4  cup water.
  6. Cover and cook on medium low heat till chicken is tender, about 20 mins.
  7. Remove cover and let the gravy dry up a little, test for taste.
  8. Dish up on serving plate and serve hot with rice.

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.

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…
