Minced pork steamed with water chestnuts


This is a homey dish which I'm sure many of you can easily whip up for lunch or dinner.  This dish consists of only three ingredients namely minced pork, lean or with a bit of fat, a few fresh water chestnuts and a salted egg.  A dish that can  pair well with a bowl of white rice or just plain congee.

  5. Thanks for introducing this awesome dish. There must be some crunch and texture to this dish - from the water chestnuts. I would certainly pair it with plain congee.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
