  6. It's a great one pot meal. It's very easy to make and they look delicious. I bet they are. Thanks for sharing another delicious and easy recipe. I think I would have to use jasmine rice for this though. We don't have the Taj Mahal rice.

  7. Hi
    Angie's Recipes
    That's the first time I cooked it. Didn't like pumpkin before, but my other half loves it, but now, I've no regrets.

    Ya, it's really delicious and easy too.

    My Little Space
    Quick and easy meal. Cook this, whip up a vegetable soup and that's it.

    You're welcome Elin. Senang, senang.

    I know who's going to have it for dinner. The meat will be cooked because you fry all the ingredients, half cooked prior to putting in the pot. Blanch some vegetables or make a soup, and that's a meal. If you have chilli padi, best! Also made yam/taro rice, will post later.

    Jasmine rice will be fine too. Most of my recipes are very simple, one pot meal. We call it 'yat wok sook',(Cantonese) literal translation
    '1 wok cooked', ha, ha.

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. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
