Green Pea Cupcakes


Inspired by Angie's  Gluten Free Green Pea Muffins with Poppy and Mozzarella  I made these to try out as I still have some  green pea flour.  I used a basic cupcake recipe but substituted plain flour with green pea flour and added more milk as the consistency was a bit stiff.  These cuppies taste like the Indian Vadai as the main ingredients for these two 'cakes' come from peas.   The only difference is that Vadai is savoury while these cupcakes are sweet.   These green cuppies are moist and soft, something different from the normal cupcakes. If you're game for a change, give this a try!

Yam Fried Rice ~ 芋头粒炒饭

This Yam Fried Rice dish seems to be appearing in the menu of some restaurants lately, and I've savoured two versions from two different restaurants.   Here, I'm sharing with you my version of Yam fried rice, prepared with leftover cooked brown rice.  If you don't have leftover cooked rice, you can still use freshly cooked rice but air the rice to remove moisture and refrigerate it for a few hours before cooking.  This way your fried rice won't become clumpy or mushy.





A very satisfying and delicious bowl of Yam Fried Rice, which I must admit is truly 'Yum'!

Sticky rice cake with red bean paste ~ 芝麻豆沙饼

I love red bean, be it  in kuih, mooncakes, rice dumpling or other pastries with red bean paste filling.   This was my first attempt at making the red bean paste from scratch and had to admit that it was really very time consuming.  Nonetheless this sticky rice cake or glutinous rice cake with red bean paste, was indeed very delicious especially when taken fresh from the pan.  I like it that it was not deep-fried but pan-fried with very little oil when using a non-stick pan.  Great to snack on with a good old cup of hot Chinese tea!
