Chicken in Glutinous Rice Wine


This Chicken in Glutinous Rice Wine dish is an essential soup for women recovering from after childbirth, taken after the twelve day of delivery.  Usually a home-brew, this rice wine uses glutinous rice and Chinese yeast cake and left to ferment in an air-tight jar for about a month.  This is  healthy food for post-natal mothers, helps in blood circulation, helpts to get rid of  wind and warms the body.  It can be served on its own or with hot white rice or taken with noodles.

  2. Hi Cheah, is this glutinous rice wine the same as the wine obtained from red yeast fermentation?. Just receive a bottle from a friend and still thinking what to do with it. This soup must be very flavourful and 'sweet'.

    1. The wine that I used wasn't from red yeast. They work more or less the same. I like to have this soup once in a while but not during humid and hazy weather!

    1. Thank you. I need to dilute this as I'll go red and hot all over if I take it too concentrated!

    1. Perhaps you can try the grocers but it's better if it's home brewed.

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
