  3. This must be quite spicy with the belacan. I miss belacan. I have to brave the cold to cook outside if I want to eat it very badly. I hope you will just cook for me :) I have not tried belacan rice. This just sounds too good to resist. I'll probably dream of it tonight...haha

    Oh, you mean belacan granules and Fish sauce? Belacan granules are from Maggi, and normally I buy fish sauce from Thailand.

    Thanks. The chillies give the extra Oomph!

    The aroma from belacan granules is not so pungent as belacan paste, but it's tasty. It's not spicy, the bird's eye chillies provide the 'hot' flavour.

    The belacan granules are from Maggi, the company making Maggi mee, Maggi chilli sauce, tomato sauce. They're just like chicken granules, but the ingredient is belacan, a shrimp paste.

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!

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
