Mango Chutney


This is my first attempt at making chutney and I was having the impression that it's going to be a very tedious chore.  When a friend gave me a few mangoes recently, I quickly browsed through the internet to look for some easy recipes to try my hands at making chutney.  I was taken aback when I realised that it was not so difficult as I had imagined and  was truly very satisfied with my maiden attempt!




Recipe for Mango Chutney

    Ingredients

    • 850 gm/1.3/4 lb mango flesh, cut into 3/4" cubes.
    • 80 gm raisin
    • 1/4 cup apple cider
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 1 Tsp chopped garlic
    • 1 Tsp chilli powder
    • 1  Tsp garam masala
    • 1 Tsp mustard seeds
    • 1/4  Tsp turmeric powder
    • 2 Tsps oil
    Method
    1. Lightly fry the chopped garlic and onion with oil, add in the mustard seeds, stir fry.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

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 :)
