    Yes,my mum used to make this too. Many years ago it was the rage to have fresh'Gum Jum'in stir-fry. Fresh ones are available in Camerons, it's a flower, bright yellow in colour, just pluck it before it ripens. But now this dish has faded.

  6. I love this dish! I would have this with a condiment of sliced chili padi, soy sauce and a squeeze of lime juice! Sounds weird? But I love to dip the chicken in the soy sauce and top with the chili padi! :)

    Steamed chicken is quite common in Chinese cuisine. You may give it a try to see whether you like it.

    Yes, sounds weird to me. I'd prefer your dip to go with poached chicken.

    I think most boys do not like steamed dishes, fried would be their choice.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
