  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.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
