Steamed chicken with Foo Yue



This steamed chicken dish is very easy and quick to prepare and minimum effort is needed to get this served on the dining table.  For those who have no inkling of what 'foo yue' is ..... it's fermented beancurd or sometimes people refer to it as Chinese cheese.   It has a pungent aroma and cheesy flavour.  Fermented beancurd comes in two colours, red and white.   The former is  usually cooked with meat while the latter is normally used to flavour vegetable dishes.





An appetising dish which will pair well with a bowl of hot white rice ........

  2. What a classic chinese dish! I love it! Do we also call the red type as "nam yue?" I have a bottle of "nam yue" at home, not eating it very often but love it!

Traditional Chinese baked sponge cake ~ 烤鸡蛋糕

These old fashioned Chinese baked sponge cakes bring back fond memories of my childhood of  yesteryears.  They taste somewhat like the CNY Kuih Bahulu and I remember snacking on them when I was little.  I've tried making this twice, googled and tweaked the recipe from here and there but the cakes turned out chewy instead of soft and moist.  I was about to raise the white flag when I told myself that I might be third time lucky and thankfully I managed to get what I wanted on my third attempt.  So perserverence does pay!

The recipe may look easy but the beating of the eggs to 'ribbon' stage and the folding/whisking of the flour into the egg mixture can be tricky ...... that's why I had to try thrice before I could achieve what I wanted.  I kept two cakes in a container and they were even softer the next day.... Yum is the word!

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 :)
