Mixed veggie stir-fry


This is a very simple home-cooked stir-fry dish which I'm sure most of you will know how to prepare.  I fried the cauliflower and red capsicum to just three quarters cooked as I prefer them to be crunchy ..... pairs well with a bowl of hot white rice.

  • 2 pieces fish cake, sliced
  • 1 red capsicum, cut into wedges
  • 100 gm  cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 4 pips garlic, chopped
  • 2 tsp Shaoxing wine
  • 1 tsp cornflour + 2  Tbsp water for thickening
  • Salt and some light soya sauce to taste
Seasoning for prawns
  • 1 tsp each :  salt, sugar
  • A dash of pepper
Preparation
  1. Marinate the prawns with the above seasoning.  Set aside.
  2. Pan-fry the sliced fish cake for a while till slightly brown, push aside.
  3. Add in more oil and saute the chopped garlic till fragrant.
  4. Toss in the cauliflower, stir-fry for a while followed by the capsicum.
  5. Add in the seasoned prawns, sprinkle some water if necessary.
  6. Test for taste and add in the cornflour thickening.  Turn off heat.
  7. Stir in the wine, dish out onto serving plate.
  8. Serve hot with rice.

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…

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Char Siew Pau ~ 蒸叉烧包

I have been itching to try out a Pau recipe and vaguely remember that I did make it once, long, long ago.  So I  got hold of my old file of recipes and finally managed to retrieve it.  I did it recently and must say that I'm satisfied with the result.  The texture of the Pau was soft and a bit chewy, wholesome and filling too.  Naturally, they didn't look so nice and round like the ones sold in the dim sum restaurants, but nonetheless I think homemade ones can be just as delectable as well.
