Tomyam steam fish


It's time for some sour and spicy dish to whet the palate after consumimg so much sweet meats and high calorie food over the past few weeks ...... 'Tomyam steam fish'




Very basic ingredients - Tomyam paste, bunga kantan, big onion and kaffir leaves ...ooops, forgot to bring in the bird eye chillies for the picture.


Used a generous cut of fish tail end, dressed it up with all the 'paraphernalia', and into the hot pot of boiling water, it goes .................


Transformed -  add a sprinkling of finely chopped kaffir lime leaves.



I like this part very much, the muscles and it's chewy!


You're welcome to join me for dinner ..... quick serve the white rice!

  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 bird eye chillies - chopped

  • 2  tsp sugar
  • 3  tsp water
Preparation
  1. Wash the fish tail, make 2 slits about 1.1/2 inches apart across the side of the fish.  Season with some salt and set aside.
  2. Place some onion slice on the base of the plate and put the fish on top.
  3. Mix the tomyam paste with the sugar and water, test for taste and spoon over the fish.
  4. Next, sprinkle on the sliced bunga kantan and chopped bird eye chillies.

    Yes,but then sometimes unknowingly you'll end up with fish that's got a very tough skin and the fish will curl up!

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
