Chicken Mango Salad



This is a light and refreshing salad which is simple, tangy and super easy to whip up for all seasons and occasions.  You can serve  this as a meal on its own.  I used leftover roast chicken, tossed in some vegetables and mango slices, drizzle on some dressing and it's  done!

Puff Pastry Nian Gao ~ 酥皮年糕

Each Chinese New Year, I would get a Nian Gao, sticky rice cake as an offering for prayers as Nian Gao is a homonym for  'higher year',  which symbolises increasing prosperity and higher achievement for the coming year.  Therefore it is considered good luck to eat Nian Gao during this period.  Instead of frying the Nian Gao with batter like what I did 'here', this time I chose to just wrap it up with a piece of puff pastry and dump it into the oven, and the ultimate result,  yummy gluey Nian Gao with crispy pastry!





Puff Pastry Nian Gao   ~   酥皮年糕
Ingredients 10 small pieces of Nian Gao about 1.1/2 x 3/4 x 1/2 inch  10 pieces of 4 x 4 inch Kawan puff pastry Egg glaze
