Stir-fry roast pork with leeks ~ 大蒜炒燒肉


This dish doesn't need much introduction and no recipe whatsoever.  A very homey dish that is popular when one goes to have plain white Teochew porridge for it does pair very well with it.  I stir-fried this with my leftover homemade roast pork belly and what did I serve with it?   Plain white porridge, of course :)

  2. Hi Cheah,
    Oh yes, so delicious with a bowl of rice. It's one of the popular homecooked dishes that I used to have in my younger days. But I always "attack" the lean pork ... hee .. hee!

This is a quickie and delicious chicken dish, braised in caramelised sauce.  The ingredients are not too difficult to find and if you can't find kaffir lime leaves, you can omit them altogether.  This dish serves well with white rice and a side veggie dish.  Try it!

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
