Sour plum chicken



This crispy sour plum chicken dish is another family favourite and in this instance I've used boneless chicken leg.  Easy to prepare ~ just marinate the chicken with some seasoning, dip it in some cornflour to coat, deepfry, ladle on the sauce and is ready to be enjoyed.







This chicky dish is flavourful and is yummy served with a bowl of piping hot rice and some green salad.....very convenient to eat because there are no bones to pick!

    Yes, me too. Very rarely deepfry my food, too oily.

    Majority of kids love anything deepfried.

    Once in a while ok. I hate to deepfry as I find it messy and afraid of it splattering. Surprisingly this didn't, maybe because I didn't use egg, therefore not so watery.

    Janine
    I too was surprised that it was so easy and most important not greasy.

    You can give it a try and use lemon juice as an alternative.

  10. Sounds really delicious and appetizing! Does the sour plum sauce comes in a jar? We have plum sauce but I am not sure if it is the same as sour plum sauce.

    If you love deepfried stuff, then this will surely appeal to you.

    The one I used is in a bottle. I'm sure you can use the plum sauce available in your area, it's just a matter of fine tuning the taste. Shouldn't be a hurdle for you!

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…

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen.   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.

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!
