  1. Hi Cheah, nice soup to serve with toasted bread too. What kind of thick cream are you using? Simple and nice, I'll try.

    1. Mui Mui, I'm not so sure. It should be a pouring cream. Culinary cream is a fancy name for heavy cream, that's what I found it from Google. I also googled and found this website. Perhaps you can take a look at it.

  7. Cheah,
    Thanks for your advise and information.
    I knew the culinary cream from Anchor dairy products demo. When I saw your creamy chicken soup I thought of that. :)

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…
