Lemon Grass Turmeric Chicken ~ 香茅姜黄鸡


This is a simple yet delicious dish with a few easily available ingredients.  The lemon grass lets outs a citrusy fragrance while the yellow turmeric spice lends a beautiful colour to the dish.  Turmeric not only helps to boost food flavours but it also has many benefits which includes helping to ward off dementia and reduce the risk of cancer, just to mention a few.

  3. Hi Soke Hah, I cooked this dish yesterday and I like it. Tastes is just nice. Instead of chopping the lemongrass, I actually used blended lemongrass bought from the wet market. Thanks for sharing. Thinking of preparing this with free range chicken, should be good, too.

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 :)
