Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies ~ 巧克力核桃奇曲


Delight your family and friends with these easy chocolate chip cookies with butter and walnuts.  These cookies are fairly big, thick, crunchy and not very sweet as I've cut down on the amount of sugar.  These are always a hit amongst adults and children alike.

Ingredients
  • 170 gm unsalted butter
  • 90 gm dark brown sugar  ( I used Rapadura sugar)

  1. Sift plain flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt, mix in cornflour set aside.
  2. Using a handheld whisk, beat butter and sugar till smooth and creamy.
  3. Add in the egg, mix well.
  4. Lightly whisk in the flours, mix till well combined.
  5. On low speed, add in choc-chips and walnuts, or you can opt to mix in by hand with a spatula.
  6. Wrap dough in clingwrap, chill in the fridge for a few hours or up to 2 days.  I chilled mine, overnight.  (Chlling is a must as this cookie dough is soft).

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.

Eel soup

This is an ABC soup with a difference.  Yes, there's fish in this soup ..... added a block of eel in it.  Curiosity was what prompted me to cook this soup.  I asked the fishmonger what is the best way to prepare this fish and he said that this eel makes a very tasty soup and I can't agree  more! Sweet and tasty soup with no fishy smell at all!

Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜焖五花肉

Mui Choy is preserved mustard greens and there are two types, one is salty while the other is sweet.  There are many ways of cooking mui choy with pork belly.  Instead of braising, you can steam it with minced pork but here I am using only the sweet mui choy and I braised the pork belly with it.  This is a flavourful dish and you can serve it with plain rice or plain porridge.
