Chicken Stew with hot and spicy Korean sauce




This stew is packed with tender chunks of chicken, potatoes, carrot and onions.  I added 2 teaspoons of chilli flakes to the hot and spicy Korean sauce to give it the extra 'kick'.  This stew did go down well with hot white rice but I preferred to have it with bread instead.

    1. I suppose you can use other chilli sauce, add some chilli flakes if you'd like a spicy taste.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.   Recipe for Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake Ingredients (Dough) 150 gm superfine flour, sifted 90 ml golden syrup 38 ml vegetable oil 2 ml alkaline water Egg wash - 1 whole egg + 1 tsp water, mix well and strain. Method Mix syrup, oil and alkaline water thoroughly with a handwhisk. Sift in flour, mix well with spatula and let rest for 2 hours or more, till it doesn't stick to the hands.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
