Sour plum chicken



This crispy sour plum chicken dish is another family favourite and in this instance I've used boneless chicken leg.  Easy to prepare ~ just marinate the chicken with some seasoning, dip it in some cornflour to coat, deepfry, ladle on the sauce and is ready to be enjoyed.







This chicky dish is flavourful and is yummy served with a bowl of piping hot rice and some green salad.....very convenient to eat because there are no bones to pick!

    Yes, me too. Very rarely deepfry my food, too oily.

    Ann
    Majority of kids love anything deepfried.

    Once in a while ok. I hate to deepfry as I find it messy and afraid of it splattering. Surprisingly this didn't, maybe because I didn't use egg, therefore not so watery.

    Janine
    I too was surprised that it was so easy and most important not greasy.

    You can give it a try and use lemon juice as an alternative.

  9. Sounds really delicious and appetizing! Does the sour plum sauce comes in a jar? We have plum sauce but I am not sure if it is the same as sour plum sauce.

    If you love deepfried stuff, then this will surely appeal to you.

    The one I used is in a bottle. I'm sure you can use the plum sauce available in your area, it's just a matter of fine tuning the taste. Shouldn't be a hurdle for you!

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
