Sarsi chicken wings



I'm sure that many of you food lovers have heared of Cola chicken wings which as the name implies, has coca cola in those wings.  But I've cooked mine with Sarsi, with leftover sarsi from Sarsi Bundt cake and hence 'Sarsi chicken wings' came into being.   Don't misjudge these skinny undernourished looking wings, they're free range chicken wings that's why.  These are more lean but they're tasty, finger-licking good and can be served as finger food or as a snack.



 











These yummy wings can be served with white rice but  I served mine with wholemeal  bread and some salad....another easy all-round meal!

    1. No, I hardly go to Kg Simee market, bought them from my usual market place near my house. The lady has both farm chicken and free-range chicken wings and legs.

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…
