  4. Hi Cheah, I'm sure you love this coloured chiffon as much as I do. BTW, I always grind my own black glutinous rice flour. Mind sharing where I can get the ready ones? Also any explanation why the colour is more purple than black? TQ.

    1. I bought the glutinous rice flour, 'meal' from the baking ingredients shop i.e. Intrico Sdn. Bhd.,Ipoh Garden, Ipoh. It's not totally black, a bit of purple.

    1. It does have a slight hak lor mai taste and it's fragrant because of the coconut milk.

    I wasn't very satisfied with my last attempt with this. Mine has a rough mouth feel, as if got sawdust.. u know... not the usual cake feel.

    1. I like the texture, soft, wasn't like sawdust. Maybe it's the black glutinous flour you used.

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.
