'Nam Yue' Rolls


I've been putting off making these 'Nam Yue' pau for quite some time but finally got down to it.  Instead of pleating the folds of the pau, this time I chose to just roll it up for a change, hence 'Nam Yue' rolls.  For those readers who do not have an idea of what 'nam yue' is, do check it out  'here'.












As you can see, I didn't make the meat too moist with more sauce as I was afraid that the gravy will ooze out from the ends, upon steaming.

Ingredients for Pau skin
  • 500 gm pau flour
  • 2.1/2  tsp dried yeast
  • 100ml lukewarm water 
  • 125 gm sugar
  • 5  tsp shortening
  • 2.1/8  tsp baking powder
  • 1/4  tsp salt
Filling
  • 370 gm pork fillet cut to 1/2 inch slice
  • 1  tsp nam yue/ preserved beancurd, smashed
  • 1  tsp each of light soya sauce and Shaoxing wine
  • 6 pips garlic, crushed
  • 2  tsp sugar
  • 1/8  tsp dark soya sauce
  • 1/2  cup water
  • 1/2  tsp cornflour + 2 tsp water to thicken
Preparation
  1. Marinate the pork fillet with the smashed nam yue for a few hours.
  2. Heat up a pan and saute the crushed garlic with some oil till fragrant.
  3. Mix in the marinated meat, stir-fry and add in all the sauces and sugar.
  4. Add in the water and let it simmer till the meat is cooked.
  5. Test for taste and stir in the cornflour thickening.
  6. Let cool and keep refrigerated till ready for use.  (Best to make this overnight).
Method
  1. Mix dried yeast with lukewarm water, stir.
  2. Add in 130 gm sifted pau flour, mix well.  Roughly make into a ball of dough and set aside for 15 mins.   (A)
  3. Mix the balance 370 gm sifted pau flour with the baking powder, sguar and salt.  (B)
  4. Pour (B) into (A).
  5. Add in shortening and water sparingly, knead till dough doesn't stick to the hands.  If the dough is too dry, add in 1 tsp of water.
  6. Cover dough with a damp cloth and let dough prove till double in size for about an hour, in a warm place.
  7. Knock out dough, knead for some time.  Roll out onto a slightly floured surface.  Weigh out about 50 gm of dough.
  8. Roll out into an oblong, put in the cooked meat and roll up like a swiss roll.
  9. Place the  roll on a piece of greaseproof paper, repeat process for the others.  Cover rolls  with a damp cloth and let rise for another 15 mins.
  10. Steam rolls under rapidly boiling water for 10 - 12 mins. and be very quick when removing the cover of the steamer, taking care not to let the condensed water drip onto the rolls.
  11. Remove from steamer and serve warm.

  9. What a great idea to make a rolled shape. Looks so elegant too. I don't think I've ever eaten this style of pork before (or maybe I just didn't know what it was called) :)

    Thanks. Not sure about Menglembu because I hardly go there.

    Jeannie
    Yes, that way the sauce won't ooze out.

    Rebecca
    Of course you can. More than welcome!

    busygran
    Yup I agree with you too but then I just thought of making something different to post on my blog.

    Penny
    You can do it too. I made the pau with the Rooster brand Vietnamese flour in Melbourne, turned out ok. No need to add in so much vinegar to the boiling water, less than half of what was stated is good enough.

    Elin
    Hey you can make good pau too, momsie!

    Sonia
    That's a nice picture, gosh so young! You too are welcome to partake the pau.

    Maybe it's high time you make for your girls, i.e. if they like pau.

    Zoe
    When I was in Melbourne I made pau with the Rooster brand Vietnamese pau flour and the result was good. Perhaps you can check it out. Caution though, don't add so much vinegar into the boiling water for steaming the pau.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Steamed Tofu ~ Beancurd

'Steamed Tofu' ~ Beancurd is always a hot favourite with my family whenever we eat out ...... nutritious and for easy digestion especially with oldies around.  For more information on  'Tofu'   read here.

Black Bean Sauce Chicken ~ 黑豆酱鸡

  This is an easy peasy chicken dish to whip up in the kitchen which can pair well with plain white rice or plain congee.  Ingredients are not complicated and mostly available in the kitchen, but it's best to season the chicken first before stir frying them. Black Bean Sauce Chicken   ~   黑豆酱鸡 Ingredients 450 gm  chicken, cut into bite size (whole leg of chicken and breast) 2 tsp black bean sauce 4 pips of garlic, chopped 1 big onion cut into wedges 1 chilli, chopped 1 small Carrot, cut into slices Curry leaves Bit of sugar to taste Method Season the chicken with a pinch of salt. Saute the chopped garlic with the curry leaves and black bean sauce till fragrant. Add in the seasoned chicken, stir fry and sprinkle on some water if the dish is too dry. Simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Add in the sliced carrot and onion wedges.  Fine tune to taste with a bit of sugar. Toss in the chopped chilli. Dish up to serve.
