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.

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!
