'Chau Lup Lup'

What a funny name, 'Chau Lup Lup', curious to know what it is?  It's one of my late mum's signature dishes, and it's her favourite whenever she cooked plain white porridge.  She called it 'Chau Lup Lup', which literally means 'fry all the small pieces'.  That's why all the ingredients are either diced or sliced.
When eaten with plain porridge, it resembles the 'Hakka' dish, 'Looi Char', where everything is mixed together with rice and a vegetable tea.  Like 'Looi Char', this dish also requires a fair bit of biting and chewing power.











Recipe for Chau Lup Lup

Ingredients :
  • 150 gm French Beans  - diced
  • 100 gm Dried Bean Curd  - diced
  • 50 gm Preserved vegetable/Choy Poh  - diced
  • 20 gm Dried Shrimps, wash and drained
  • 80 gm Roasted Pork  -  diced
  • 40 gm Groundnuts
  • 1.1/2 to 2 Tbsp oil for frying
  • 2 shallots  - chopped
  • 1/2  Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp light Soya Sauce
  • 1/2  Tsp sugar
  • Waer for sprinking while frying
Garnishing   -   1 red chilly, sliced

Method :
  1. Lightly fry the groundnuts till cooked, discard the skin, and set aside.
  2. Heat up the oil, add in the salt and saute the sliced shallots with the diced roast pork.
  3. Add in the dried shrimps and the diced preserved vegetable and continue frying.
  4. Next, add in the diced dried bean curd, fry lightly.  At this juncture, add in the light soya sauce and sugar.
  5. If the dish is a bit dry, wet it by sprinkling in some water just to keep it moist.
  6. Lastly, add in the diced french beans and add salt to taste.
  7. Dish up and garnish with  a sprinkling of the roasted groundnuts and sliced red chilly.
  8. Serve.
Note :   This dish will go well with plain white porridge.

  1. We usually have the salted or century eggs, the pork floss or pickled cucumbers for congee but never tried this. So, this is something new to try for our congee. It's healthier too. Thanks for the recipe.

  7. My mum used to prepare this too and it is one of my favourite dishes. I also add in some chilli padi for the extra "kick" and use fresh shrimps instead of the dried ones. Tastes sumptuous.

  9. yes, chilli padi as well as the bigger ones are available in Rotterdam. The Indian stores also sell those that are shaped like red and yellow peppers, though smaller in size and lighter and those are really "hot"

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen .   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster. Recipe for Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng)   老婆餅  Ingredients Filling 120 gm candied winter melon, finely chopped 5 ml oil 15 gm caster sugar 40 gm koh fun 50 ml water Method Add sugar to the chopped winter melon, mix in the oil, water and mix lightly together.
