Red fermented beancurd paste aka 'Nam Yue' Chicken ~ 南乳鸡


I've made spare ribs with red fermented beancurd paste before and today I'm sharing with you a chicken dish with these cubes of bean curd that have been preserved in fermented red rice and other seasonings.  No aftermath cleaning of the kitchen was needed as I didn't deep fry these chicken pieces, only cooked them in a non-stick pan, with lid on!



Recipe for Red-fermented Beancurd Chicken aka 'Nam Yue' Chicken ~   

Ingredients                                        

  • 750 gm drumsticks and whole leg of chicken
  • 1 piece red-fermented beancurd, mashed
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 20 gm ginger, pounded and juiced
  • 4 to 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1.1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp light soya sauce
  • 1/2 tsp dark soya sauce
  • 50 ml water to add to the mashed red-fermented beancurd
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp Shoaxing wine to drizzle
Method
  1. Marinate the chicken with the mashed beancurd, honey, ginger juice, minced garlic, sugar, light and dark soya sauce and a pinch of salt.  (I marinated them overnight, kept refrigerated).
  2. Place the chicken onto a non-stick pan, cook on low heat.  Gradually add in the marinade, turning the chicken from side to side.  Cover with lid and cook on medium heat till the chicken is cooked and the marinade reduced.
  3. Fine tune to taste.
  4. Drizzle on the Shaoxing wine and turn off heat.
  5. Dish out and serve immediately.

  4. Hi Soke Hah, I just love your style of cooking, no deep frying and it is always so perfect cooking with a non-stick pan. No greasy kitchen I agree. Yet the result is awesome dish for the family. This Shanghai red bean curd is good for marinating meats. I still have a few pieces left. Will try this dish with it. Thanks for sharing.

    1. You're most welcome, Kimmy. I hate to clean up a greasy kitchen after each meal, that's why I keep frying, especially deep frying to a minimum!

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.

Curry leaf Salted Egg Cookies ~ 咖喱叶咸蛋曲奇 ~ CNY 2017

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.
