Mango Sorbet 芒果沙冰


Sorbet is a refreshing dessert to cleanse your palate after a  meal.   I've made mine with some mangoes given by a friend from her orchard and it's fruity and fresh.  Yum is the word and it's perfect to snack on more so on a hot and humid day!







Recipe for Mango Sorbet  芒果沙冰 (adapted from 'here' with modification)
    Ingredients                               


    • 2 ripe mangoes, about 1 kg, peeled and pitted
    • 130 gm sugar
    • 160 ml water
    • Juice from 1 lime, about 4 tsp
    • 1 Tbsp Rum or more to taste
    • pinch of salt
    Method

    1. Cook the sugar and water till sugar has dissolved, let cool.
    2. Cut the mango into chunks, put them into a food processor.  Add in salt and lime juice and puree till smooth.
    3. Sieve the puree and discard any pulp.
    4. Mix in the sugar syrup, test for taste.
    5. Pour into a large bowl, cover with cling wrap and keep refrigerated overnight.
    6. Just before churning in the ice cream maker, add in the Rum, mix well.
    7. Churn the mixture according to  the instructions of your ice cream maker.  Transfer the mixture to a plastic container and freeze before serving.
    Note :

    As alcohol doesn't freeze, adding alcohol in a sorbet helps to prevent it from freezing solid but if adding too much, the sorbet won't freeze at all.

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 :)

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.
