Red, Black-eyed, Green beans, Sago pearls and
dried Pak Hup

nice and refreshing on a hot afternoon

  5. Aunty,
    I dont own a pressure cooker. I was thinking of making this in a slow cooker/crockpot. Would you know how long I should cook them for and whether I should stagger their cooking times?

    Red beans take a longer time to cook, green beans cook faster. If you use a slow cooker, suggest you add in the red beans first, cook on high, then check it out, if they start to soften a bit, then add in the green beans. The pak hup you can put in last, after soaking for a while. To hasten the process you can use hot water, then put on high. Hope this helps!
    Have a fun time, experimenting with cooking and baking!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!
