Tangy tamarind pork fillet ~ 亚参猪肉片


The tamarind juice in this recipe adds a sweet and sour flavour to the meat along with the aromatic kaffir lime leaves.  Besides adding flavour, the natural acidity of tamarind helps to tenderise the meat and makes the pork fillet more succulent and tender.  The marinade makes a delicious sauce when reduced and this goes very well with plain white rice.

Figs, Chicken and Red Dates Soup ~ Confinement food ~ 无花果和红枣鸡汤

Figs are high in fibre, natural sugars and minerals.  Their nutritional value increases when they're dried.  As dried figs are good for the lungs and contribute health and wellness, using them as an ingredient for making soup is benefical to our body.  Stewing figs with some pork and red dates will help to increase the flow of breast milk.  Hence it is also good for mothers in confinement.
