Red Bean Rolls

Whenever I have the opportunity I like to hang around bakeries and look at the different shapes and patterns of their bread and buns on display.  Yes, for inspiration to experiment.   I recently made these 'Red Bean Rolls' for tea and they still tasted good the next day!

After the first proving, roll out the dough, place the red bean paste in the centre, fold up and roll up into half, then fold up the sides.

Turn over the folded up dough, roll out flat, then roll up like a swiss roll and cut into 1 inch thick pieces.
Place the rolls in a pan and cover with a damp cloth, let rise again for about 40 min.  Apply egg glaze and bake in preheated oven.

Freshly baked rolls straight out from the oven ....... lovely aroma!

These yummy rolls are good for tea anytime!

  • 25 gm caster sugar

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!

Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),

Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…

Long Bean Flavourful Rice ~ 豆角有味饭

There are many ways of cooking this Hakka dish of  'Long Bean Rice'.   My old Hakka neighbour used to cook this one-pot meal dish and I didn't realise it is their clan's dish until recently.  From what I gather from other bloggers, the common ingredients are roast pork and Chinese sausages and of course, the star of the dish which is long beans or  '豆角'.  My version is pretty simple and I used homemade char siew instead.   So, here's my take on 'Long Bean Rice'.........
