Salted Caramel Ice Cream


This cool dessert should be most welcomed in any household during this hot, humid and hazy weather.  We are experiencing a very hot spell in this part of the world and this can be choking at times more so if people were to adopt 'open burning' in their compounds.   This salted caramel is a fun flavour to make and I like it best, topped with some caramel sauce and a dash of freshly ground seasalt.......an amazing flavour!

Please note that my blog has 'moved house' and my new domain name is  www.nofrillsrecipes.com and I would appreciate that you update my home url at your site.  Thanks and do have a nice weekend ahead!

  9. These few weeks are so hot. Most of the river at the southern part are almost dry up. And a lot of young durian trees already dead. Our friends here working very hard everyday to get water from nearby river to their orchard. Stressful task but have no other choice. Your ice cream sounds just perfect. Wish I can have it every day. :o)

Fried 'Nian Gao' ~ Sticky rice cake ~ CNY 2010

'Nian Gao' in Mandarin or 'Nin Ko' in Cantonese is a must-have item during CNY.  This sticky glutinous rice cake is symbolic as it carries a homonym that sounds like 'year~high/tall'.  For business people eating this will link them to prosperity and wealth and working people will look forward to career advancement, promotion. Slice them up when they're still soft, keep them in containers and they can be stored in the fridge for months. I normally steam and dip them in freshly grated young coconut mixed with some salt or just fry with beaten egg.  But this time around, I've decided to be a bit more 'challenging' and try out Elin's recipe.  Thanks, Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner   for sharing!

Kuih Salat aka Seri muka ~ 沙拉糕

Kuih Salat aka Seri Muka is a decadent Peranakan Chinese or Nyonya kuih consisting of two layers.  The bottom layer is made of glutinous rice and coconut milk while the top layer is a layer of green coconut milk custard flavoured and coloured from the juice of the pandan leaves. Kuih Salat aka Seri muka ~  沙拉糕 (A)  Bottom layer 300 gm glutinous rice 100 ml coconut milk 100 ml water 1/2 tsp salt some Pandan (screwpine) leaves Blue pea flower (Bunga Telang) juice Method Wash the glutinous rice till water is clear.  Soak it for about 4 hours, preferably overnight which I did.  Next day, drain, wash and strain to get rid of excess water.   Line an 8 inch square pan with parchment paper and oil the sides.   Pour the rice into this pan. Mix the coconut milk with water and salt, then pour the mixture onto the rice.  Shake it a bit for even distribution.  The mixture should just cover the rice. Place pandan leaves on the rice and steam the rice under medium flame for 30 minutes. Remove the pan
