Dried Shrimp Salad ~ 虾米沙拉


I was introduced to this dish when we dined out recently and the waitress recommended that this would pair very well with white porridge.  I've never thought of a dried shrimp salad and naturally we were game to give it a go.  True to what she said, this dish did go very well with the porridge and I tried to replicate it at home.   This is indeed delicious and can double up as an appetiser as well.   Think it will be a good accompaniment with a glass of cold Beer too!

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.

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.
