Orange poppyseed muffins



The orange flavour of these muffins comes from the zest in the batter and the brushing of fresh orange juice once they exit from the oven.  They are moist and crunchy, best eaten on the day they're made.  Good for breakfast, tea or as a snack anytime of the day!












Left overs taste better when they're warmed for a minute or two.

  2. Cheah, your muffins look pretty with poppy seeds. I think I'll add black sesame seeds instead when I want to bake this.

    1. Yes, the addition of poppy seeds does enhance the texture of the bakes.

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.

Turmeric chicken (2) ~ 黄 姜 鸡

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
