Mustard greens braised pig trotters aka Kai choy chee sau ~ 芥菜猪手


This is a very appetising dish and goes very well with plain white rice or even on its own.   If you like mustard leaves cooked this way like I do, you can add more.   This dish tastes much better the next day when it has 'matured' and the meat and mustard leaves have been infused with the semi sweet, sour and salty sauce........ Dig in!

  2. Hi Soke Hah, I would go for the mustard leaves with the thick trotter skin. Awesome if it is sourish. Goes well with rice and even thick porridge.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
