Turmeric Chicken ~ 黄 姜 鸡


I used both fresh Turmeric aka 'kunyit' and Galangal aka 'lengkuas' in this Turmeric Chicken recipe and together with crushed lemon grass and a sprinkling of kaffir leaves, this chicken dish was extremely delicious and fragrant.  It was indeed a good accompaniment with white rice, roti pratha or even plain bread.  Above all, this chick dish was very easy to whip up without much fuss.

    1. Yes, it tastes much better with fresh turmeric. Perhaps you can make do with dry turmeric if fresh ones are not available.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

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.

Chocolate and Matcha Chiffon Cake ~ 巧克力抹茶戚风蛋糕

  One of my family's favourite to have for breakfast or tea is the evergreen Chiffon Cake, be it in whatever flavour.   I have posted different flavours of chiffon cakes on my blog and this time I used matcha powder, and chocolate powder mixed with matcha powder not only for flavour but to create some swirl patterns.  As always chiffon cakes are light, airy, soft and most delectable.
