Korean bean paste chicken ~ 韩式酱鸡


 I just had to finish up the Korean bean paste before it expires and what's more easy to make than to pair them with chicken.   For meat, the menu is either chicken or pork in my household for I hardly ever cook with beef in my kitchen.   So, here's my fuss-free Korean bean paste chicken........






Recipe for Korean Bean Paste Chicken ~  韩式酱鸡

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken thigh, skinless, deboned and cut into 2 pieces each
  • 1 Tbsp Sunchang Ssamjung/Korean Bean Paste
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 tsp cornflour + 1 Tbsp water to thicken
  • Lightly toasted sesame seeds (optional)
Method
  1. Marinate the chicken pieces with the bean paste, brown sugar, dark soya sauce, salt and pepper for a few hours, preferably overnight.  Set aside.
  2. Place the chicken pieces onto a non-stick pan, cook on low fire, cover with lid.  Reserve the marinade.  Turn over the meat now and then.
  3. Once the chicken is cooked, push them to the side of the pan.  Thicken the marinade with the cornflour mixture and pour onto the pan, fine tune to taste and mix in the chicken pieces.
  4. Dish out onto a serving plate and sprinkle on some sesame seeds.
  5. Serve hot with rice.

  8. With Induction site cooking the heat level is every bit as instantaneous and as exact as with gas, yet with none of the many drawbacks of gas which we will detail later.

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
