Thai Green Curry



I do like Thai food but sometimes find the dishes too 'lemak' or heavy for my tummy, especially their curries.  However, Thai Green Curry has always been on my menu list whenever I patronise Thai food joints.  I cooked this curry with  Delimas Thai Green Curry Sauce and as you can see from the pictures, the curry is not 'lemak'/thick as I didn't follow fully the instructions on the packet but added more water to suit my taste buds.  Also added some palm sugar to enhance the taste.







Recipe for Thai Green Curry

    Ingredients
    • 400 gm chicken fillet and thigh, cut into chunks and seasoned with some seasalt
    • 100 gm capsicum
    • 100 gm long beans, cut into 2 inch lengths
    • 150 gm egg plant, cubed
    • 1 pkt Delimas Thai green curry sauce (180 gm/6 oz)
    • 2 to 3 bird's eye chillies, sliced
    • 1 red chilli
    • 4 kaffir leaves
    • 1 tsp palm or brown sugar (optional)
    • 1.14 cup water
    • Some fresh Thai Basil leaves to garnish
    Method
    1.  In a wok, heat up 1.1/2 Tbsp oil and pan-fry the seasoned chicken fillet.  Add in 1/2 cup water and simmer till the chicken is cooked through.
    2. Add in the egg plant, followed by the Thai green curry paste and kaffir leaves, continue stirring.
    3. Add in the long beans, capsicum, sliced chillies and water, continue stirring.  Fine tune to taste.
    4. Dish out and garnish with Basil leaves.
    5. Serve hot with rice.

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!

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.

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 :)
