Seafood Vermicelli

Sometime ago, while dining in a restaurant in Melbourne China town, my friend suggested that we order a La-la dish.  Then I found out that La-la, known in Malaysia is referred to as Pi-pi in Aussie land.  Well, be it La-la or Pi-pi, to me 'Clams' is more appropriate and better understood.
Now, back to this one-dish meal, it's easily prepared and very tasty, especially the soup ..... slurp, slurp to the last drop.  For the health conscious, round it up with a hot cup of Green tea, which may help bring down the cholesterol level after consuming such delicious crustaceans.




 tasty prawns, fish fillet, good old La-la and  some greens.
indulging once in a while, is acceptable .....




mmm ...... isn't it tempting ...... try me




a must have .....
 some freshly chopped chilli padi/birds' eye chillies
and garlic to go with it

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…

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Char Siew Pau ~ 蒸叉烧包

I have been itching to try out a Pau recipe and vaguely remember that I did make it once, long, long ago.  So I  got hold of my old file of recipes and finally managed to retrieve it.  I did it recently and must say that I'm satisfied with the result.  The texture of the Pau was soft and a bit chewy, wholesome and filling too.  Naturally, they didn't look so nice and round like the ones sold in the dim sum restaurants, but nonetheless I think homemade ones can be just as delectable as well.
