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.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

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.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
