Curry Chicken Buns



Instead of cracking my head over what to cook for dinner,  I made these ........'Curry Chicken Buns', spicy, meaty and chewy!  I managed to get 10 buns and there were some left over for lunch the next day too. This is really killing two birds with one stone!






An interesting note on curry leaves.  These leaves are extremely high in vitamin C, therefore will help clean up your blood leaving your skin with a fresh glow and your hair with more lustre and your eyes with brilliance.  Also they will help increase your level of calcium and iron too.  So the next time when you come across curry leaves in your curry mee, don't discard them, gobble them up, it's good for you!






These were yummy and I will be making more of these spicy buns for sure, perhaps of a different shape.

    Ya, I'm not a 'fan toong' too, prefer to make buns or cook noodles. Find it difficult to take the photos sometimes, because my hand shake!

    High protein flour is for making bread, maybe it's referred to as bread flour in your area. Not sure whether you can use ordinary flour, never tried before. Suppose you can, but maybe the texture will be different, not that chewy.

    Elin, yes they were delicious, ahem!

    Kristy
    Oh yes, they can be filling, especially after drinking a cup of hot coffee!

    Shirley
    Yes, spicy and savoury.

    how to do the mixing of the dough and
    for how long.
    Many thanks,

    1. Hi, I've made bread by hand before. If you don't have a bread machine, perhaps you can view my other recipes using the cake mixer's dough hook. Hope this helps.

  It's Chiffon cake again.  I never get tired of baking chiffon cakes and am still looking for new flavours of chiffon cakes.  This is a coffee chiffon with added Kahlua liqueur.  I have shared Coffee chiffon with cocoa layering and Coffee Marble chiffon cake on my blog before and if you are interested feel free to take a peep.  Again as with all chiffon cakes, this Coffee Kahlua chiffon cake doesn't disappoint, it's soft and moist with a tinge of Kahlua liqueur.

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

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.
