Chicken Mushroom Pau


Had a crush on Pau after having had some dim sum brunch lately, so set out to DIY and bring forth this Chicken Mushroom Pau.  This time, the dough took a little bit longer to prove perhaps due to the gloomy, wet weather but nonetheless the end result was just as satisfactory.

  1. Hello Cheah,
    I like making pau at home too eventhough it is so easy to get paus at the shop. It is the satisfaction feeling making our own and we can adjust the ingredients and seasoning our own. I will bookmark this because previously I only know how to make char siew pau and do not know what other filling....because I am not a good cook.

    1. You're most welcome, Mary. Think it'll be difficult for the dough to prove in Aberdeen's cold weather.

This is a quickie and delicious chicken dish, braised in caramelised sauce.  The ingredients are not too difficult to find and if you can't find kaffir lime leaves, you can omit them altogether.  This dish serves well with white rice and a side veggie dish.  Try it!

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.
