Braised Pork Belly with Yam



Cooked this Yam dish recently ...... the meat has assumed the colour of the yam, so it's pretty difficult to distinguish the meat from the yam pieces, but nonetheless,  this is a delicious dish, goes well with rice.









I love yam and can eat this on its own, more so if it's so creamy ........ Yummy!

    So do I, I prefer the yam rather the meat.

    There's a Teochew dish something like this and it's sweet, think there's no meat, but creamy yam and it's a festive dish.

    Maybe it's got 'angin'. Perhaps too filling.

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!
