Soymilk Assam Prawns



A delicous yet easy to prepare mouth-watering sourish curry dish which will definitely tantalise your tastebuds.  Instead of coconut milk, I used sugarless soymilk  and it tasted just as good. This dish will make you refill your bowls or plates with more rice and leave the table, satisfied and contented ........ burp!





An alternative to rice is to serve this dish with cooked rice vermicelli.....yummy!

  • 1 cup soymilk
  • 3/4  cup water
  • Seasalt and sugar to taste
  • 1/2  tsp anchovies/ikan bilis stock granules  (optional)
Preparation

  2. Add 1/4 cup of water to the tamarind paste, mix and strain out the juice.  Set aside.

Note :  Once the soymilk is added, do not bring to a boil as the heat will make the soymilk curdle, just simmer till the prawns are cooked.

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.
