Bread Chicken


Kampar Bread Chicken ..................No, no, this emerged from the kitchen of No-Frills Recipes, a wholesome one-dish meal, a little bit spicy, but sumptous, suitable for lunch or dinner


this is the Chicken Curry that I made with the A+1 meat curry paste, and in the background is the Kenwood breadmaker which helped me with the dough for the bread



the A+1 meat curry paste, it's spicy, so I used only half the paste




the Chicken Curry wrapped up in 2 layers of parchment paper, ready to be 'hidden' in the dough



the bread is all done now ....................'Open Sesame'............like a blooming lotus flower, slowly opening up its petals, revealing ............


what's the 'hidden treasure' ....................mmmmmm.............aromatic Curry Chicken!


what are you waiting for, .......... dunk it in .................. Enjoy ..... Yummy

  5. You are really hardworking! I really need to bring out my breadmaker and make some buns. (I had thought of a recipe for me to try out for months already and still sitting in file, I really need to kick myself in the butt for being so lazy).

  6. With the advent of the breadmaker, it certainly helps in cutting down all the kneading and waiting. I'm sure your girls will love freshly baked buns.

  7. Your bread chicken looks so much like the Kampar bread chicken that I have tasted. The color of your curry looks more appetising. Hope to try it one day.

  8. Hi Rotterdam ICON
    I think my curry tastes much better than the Kampar bread chicken, ahem .... the last time I had it in Ipoh the curry was very gluey, not 'lemak' with coconut milk, but as though they've added cornstarch to it and I saw how the cook wrapped up the chicken, so I got a slight idea. Seems Kam Ling restaurant has a better version of this bread chicken, but never tried it.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!
