Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角


This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!





Curry Chicken Puff  ~   咖哩鸡角

Ingredients

  • 1 packet Kawan puff pastry (store bought)
  • 300 gm chicken breast, diced into cubes
  • 1 potato, peeled and diced into cubes
  • 2 red onions, chopped
  • 2 tsp curry powder (or more if you prefer it more spicy)
  • 1 lemon grass, smashed
  • curry leaves
  • salt to taste
  • 1 egg + 1 tsp water for egg wash
  • 1/4 tsp chicken granules
Method for the filling
  1. Marinate the chicken cubes with the curry powder and some salt.
  2. In a pan, saute the onions with some oil, then add in the smashed lemon grass, curry leaves, then the marinated chicken cubes.
  3. Add in the potato and some water, chicken granules, cook till everything is cooked thoroughly.
  4. Test for taste.  Let cool and set aside.  (This can also be prepared overnight).
Method for assembling the puffs
  1. Press 1 piece of Kawan puff pastry snugly into the muffin pan, prick the base in several places, chill in fridge for about an hour or more.
  2. Spoon filling into the pastry, cover the top with another piece of pastry, (cut into a round shape)  press it to form a round pie, seal with a fork.  Brush the surface with egg glaze.  Make some cuts on the surface to let steam escape.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 mins., or until golden brown.
  4. Yield :  6 puffs.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

To Fu( Beancurd) Bridge ~ 跨桥豆腐

When I was recommended to try this dish in a restaurant, I was both hesitant and at the same time intrigued by its name.  I've heard of the song 'Bridge over troubled water' but Tofu crossing the bridge?  So to satisfy everyone's curiosity, we agreed to give it a try.  It's a nutritious dish with a good source of protein in the Tofu pork and egg all in one.  It was just tasty and delicious to go with a bowl of steaming hot white rice!
