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.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
