Stir-fry arrow head with leek and pork fillet ~ 慈菇大葱炒肉片


Arrow heads which are only available here during the Chinese New Year are much sought after for making chips during the festive season, or just slicing them up to steam with Chinese sausages or waxed meat, also available during this time of the year.   I cooked them in a stir-fry with leeks and some pork fillet.  You can also check out  another recipe which I posted some time back.

  4. Cheah , I had to Google arrowhead first before commenting . I thought arrowhead is a younger version of water chestnut , both look similar except for color - arrowhead though from what I've read , is starchy :D It looks appetizing and you just gave me an idea what to cook , hopefully , I can find it at the wet market tomorrow !

    1. Water chestnut can be eaten raw but I'm not sure about arrowheads. Over here, they're only available during the CNY season and are imported from China.

  7. Hi Cheah,
    I sometimes cook this with siew yok. I love your version too, you use lean meat.
    Will try this out since I saw some arrowhead still selling in the supermarket.

Chocolate chip raisin butter cupcake ~ 巧克力葡萄干牛油蛋糕

I tweaked the Marble Butter Cake recipe to make these delicious cupcakes for breakfast and there were some leftovers for tea as well.  I managed to get 17 cupcakes from the recipe and was very pleased that there were no cracks on them after being baked.   My family members were equally pleased as the cupcakes weren't overly sweet as I had reduced the amount of sugar from the recipe.
