    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.

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
