Garam Masala Turmeric Chicken ~ 印度香辛料黄姜鸡


This aromatic Garam Masala Turmeric Chicken is tasty and easy to prepare. I cooked it semi-dry so that the chicken will be infused with the flavours from the incredible sauce and  makes the chicken more delicious.  It looks spicy but it's not and kids can also partake in this.  You can serve this with bread or white rice and I chose to serve this with roti paratha.

    1. 3/4 cup or more, depending on how much meat there is, then once the meat is cooked, depends on how thick you want the sauce, it's all personal preference.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.

Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish), Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually ,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwr

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.
