Mixed veggie stir-fry


This is a very simple home-cooked stir-fry dish which I'm sure most of you will know how to prepare.  I fried the cauliflower and red capsicum to just three quarters cooked as I prefer them to be crunchy ..... pairs well with a bowl of hot white rice.





Ingredients
  • 100 gm prawns
  • 2 pieces fish cake, sliced
  • 1 red capsicum, cut into wedges
  • 100 gm  cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 4 pips garlic, chopped
  • 2 tsp Shaoxing wine
  • 1 tsp cornflour + 2  Tbsp water for thickening
  • Salt and some light soya sauce to taste
Seasoning for prawns
  • 1 tsp each :  salt, sugar
  • A dash of pepper
Preparation
  1. Marinate the prawns with the above seasoning.  Set aside.
  2. Pan-fry the sliced fish cake for a while till slightly brown, push aside.
  3. Add in more oil and saute the chopped garlic till fragrant.
  4. Toss in the cauliflower, stir-fry for a while followed by the capsicum.
  5. Add in the seasoned prawns, sprinkle some water if necessary.
  6. Test for taste and add in the cornflour thickening.  Turn off heat.
  7. Stir in the wine, dish out onto serving plate.
  8. Serve hot with rice.

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 :)
